Smaoineamh

There are high expectations put on all of us in these weeks before Christmas. Some of these are artifically high. We’re expected to be in good form, to be in good spirits, to be able to buy gifts at ease and to be in many places at one time. Not everyone can meet these high expectations and this can lead to so much unnecessary stress and worry. The greatest gift we can give to those closest to us is to walk with them and be their friend. When we do this we put aside all expectations and allow someone just to be themselves.

Paróiste Fionn Trá.
Suite fé Shliabh an Iolair,
Ag dearcadh ‘mach ar an gCuan,
Tá paróiste mo shean is mo shinnsear
Atá sa reilig anois ina suan.
Is ann a tógadh is a hoileadh mé
Is beidh im’ chroí go bráth
Cuimhní breá‘tha, deasa, buanna
Ar mo pharóiste féin – Fionn Trá.

Bhí aithne ‘gam ar na cómharsain
Ó Fán go Coum a’ Liaig
Cathair a’ Treanntaigh, Baile n’ Chóta
Gan trácht ar Bhaile tSlé.
Cathair Boilig, Ard a’Bhóthair
Agus suas fé Chíll a’ Ruith
Agus cómharsain Chíllmhicadomhnaigh,
Ní fhaca a sárú ó shin.

Dómhsa anois is uaigneach,
An turas a thugaim ort,
Tá cairde m’óige imithe
Cuid acu thall thar s’rúth,
An spórt, an scléip, an caidreamh
A bhíodh againne tráth
Agus sinne óg agus aerach,
Im Pharóiste féin – Fionn Trá.

Smaoineamh

When we look at Jesus what do we see? There is no throne, no crown, no palace, no army. We see him walking the dusty roads of Palestine with a little band of disciples. He is surrounded by the poor and the sick, by sinners and outcasts. And yet the title ‘king’ is appropriate, and stands for something true and real in Jesus. It stands for his divinity. God is the Lord of all, the King of the universe, the One to whom all owe allegiance, the Ruler and Judge of all.

Dingle Parish Pastoral Council meeting next Thursday, November 29th at 8pm in the Presbytery.

Prayer For The Dead

Life is but a stopping place,
a pause in what’s to be,
a resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.

We all have different journeys,
different paths along the way,
we all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay…

Our destination is a place,
far greater than we know.
For some the journey is quicker,
for some the journey is slow.

And when the journey finally ends,
We hope to claim a great reward,
and find an everlasting peace,
together with the lord.

HOLY SOULS – NOVEMBER MASSES
Holy Souls – November Masses will continue to be celebrated in our Parish churches remembering all those named by you in our Parish November Lists. You will find the purple coloured list in the envelope delivered to your homes recently. Spare envelopes and blank lists are available at the back of the 3 Churches.

Séipéal Eoin Baiste – at 7.30pm. November 20th, 21st and 22nd.

Reflection for the 2nd World Day of the Poor
“The poor evangelize us and help us each day to discover the beauty of the Gospel. Let us not squander this grace-filled opportunity. On this day, may all of us feel that we are in debt to the poor, because, in hands outstretched to one another, a salvific encounter can take place to strengthen our faith, inspire our charity and enable our hope to advance securely on our path towards the Lord who is to come.”

Prayer For The Dead

God, thank you for the special people in our lives
whom we are remembering here today.
We thank you that you are a compassionate God
who walks with us in our dark moments
of grief and loneliness.

We are thankful for all who continue to love
and support us in our grief.
Continue to be a light for us, giving us hope,
direction and courage.

May we now live our lives treasuring the memories
of those special people we have known and loved
and help us to bring light and hope to others.

We make this prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen

HOLY SOULS – NOVEMBER MASSES
Holy Souls – November Masses will continue to be celebrated in our Parish churches remembering all those named by you in our Parish November Lists. You will find the purple coloured list in the envelope delivered to your homes recently. Spare envelopes and blank lists are available at the back of the 3 Churches.
A triduum of Masses will be celebrated for those on the lists:

Halla Cheann Trá – ar 7.30i.n. Samhain 13ú, 14ú agus 15ú.
Séipéal Eoin Baiste – at 7.30pm. November 20th, 21st and 22nd.

Mass will be celebrated for all those who died in West Kerry Community Hospital in the past year on Wednesday November 14th at 11am.

November Offerings
Sincere thanks to all who have returned the November Offerings and list. If you have not done so, we would appreciate your returning them as soon as possible. Your list of the dead can be placed with the offering in the envelope provided. Le Mór-Bhuíochas.

Smaoineamh
Change is part and parcel of life. Significant changes are part of our lives too. Some are forced, some are necessary and some are welcome. By and large any change needs adjustments on our behalf. During this month of November we remember and pray for those who have died. For those who have lost a loved one, the changes can be overwhelming and traumatic. Adjusting to the change of a loved one not around any more can be a slow, painful and lonely journey. Our prayers during this month of November are not just a token gesture of doing something for the sake of doing it. Our prayers are in some small way an attempt to help us cope with these changes. We may never get over some changes in life but we can go a long way in feeling less threatened by them.

Pray for Gus O’Connor, Castletownbere and late of Baile na Buaile; Bridie Leahy, Clones, Co. Monaghan. Suaimhneas síoraí dá n-anamacha.

The Art of Marriage

A good marriage must be created,
In the art of marriage the little things are the big things…
It is never being too old to hold hands
It is remembering to say “I love you” at least once a day
It is never going to sleep angry
It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives
It is standing together facing the world.
It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family.
It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is having the capacity to forgive and forget
It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow
It is finding room for the things of the spirit
It is a common search for the good and the beautiful
It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner.

Smaoineamh

We all like to be treated well and fairly. It is a natural human instinct. Even Jesus in our gospels spoke of it many times by asking us to treat others as we would like them to treat us. Every single one of us has the potential to go that extra step. We have the potential to give, use and develop all that God has given to us that little bit more. Other people also have that same potential. But we sometimes treat others as if they are incapable of change. What a shame if that were to happen. We are envouraged to nurture the potential, the promise, the goodness and all the great things within each person with no exceptions.

Smaoineamh
Jesus’ response to the request of James and John indicates that the Christian mission is very different:
• For Jesus greatness consists, not in domination, but in service.
• Jesus’s kingdom is not about who wears the crown, but who bears the cross – like the suffering servant of the first reading.

Safeguarding Sunday
October 14th 2018

Message from Bishop of Kerry and Chairperson of the Diocesan Safeguarding Committee
We welcome this initiative to have an annual Safeguarding Sunday in the Diocese. Each year it will remind us all that the key to safeguarding is good public awareness of the potential danger to children and the importance of good practice across the Diocese.
Safeguarding Sunday this year gives us an opportunity to remember and say thanks to all who have voluntarily worked for the cause in the Diocese, at diocesan or parish level over the past twenty years and more. Special thanks to those who continue to serve at this time.
The week of his visit to Ireland Pope Francis wrote a letter to the People of God, to the whole Church worldwide. Two sentences from that letter reminds us why Safeguarding is so important. “Even though it can be said that most of these cases belong to the past, nonetheless as time goes on we have come to know the pain of many of the victims. We have realised that these wounds never disappear and that they require us forcefully to condemn these atrocities.”

Canonisation of Archbishop Oscar Romero
This Sunday, 14th October 2018, at a ceremony in Rome, Pope Francis will officially recognise the sainthood of Oscar Romero, Archbishop of San Salvador. It is a fitting tribute to an extraordinary man, whose life still influences the work of Trōcaire and similar organisations working for human rights around the world.

Smaoineamh

Disappointments are part and parcel of life. Some we expect, some just happen and more happen totally unexpected. While they do set us back, we can certainly pick up the pieces and get going again. In most cases we re-adjust, we learn from the experience and move on. Trying to avoid disappointments is impossible; it’s restrictive and means we are out of touch with real life. Even in our Gospels, Jesus and his friends experienced setbacks and disappointments. Everything did not go according to plan, not everyone welcomed them but yet they kept going forward in hope. An old saying probably sums it up best, ‘Our best success comes after our greatest disappointments.’

A Prayer for the Earth

All powerful God, you are present in the whole universe and in the smallest of your creatures.
You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.
Pour out upon us the power of your love,
that we may protect life and beauty.
Fill us with peace, that we may live
as brothers and sisters, harming no one.
O God of the poor,
help us to rescue the abandoned
and forgotten of this earth,
so precious in your eyes.
Bring healing to our lives,
that we may protect the world and not prey on it
that we may sow beauty, not pollution and destruction.

Smaoineamh

“It is not good for man to be alone” and the decision is to make a helper who matches him, complements him, while not being identical to him. The animals are brought to be named. They are close to man, shaped from the land and called “living creatures,” but are not suitable helpmates. Only the woman is. The marriage bond is even stronger than that between parent and child, for “a man forsakes his father and mother and sticks to his wife” – at first sight something astonishing when family duty was next to loyalty to God.
