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.

The Smaller Beatitudes

Blessed are those who are sane enough not to take themselves too seriously: they will be valued by those about them.

Happy are you if you can take small things seriously and face serious things calmly.

Happy are you if you can be kind in understanding the attitudes of others.

Blessed are they who think before acting and pray before thinking: they will avoid many blunders.

Blessed are those who recognise the Lord in all whom they meet: the light of truth shines in their lives.
They have found true wisdom.

Smaoineamh

Some people are threatened by the gifts or achievements of others. If only they had a more open attitude they would find themselves enriched rather than diminished by those gifts. The person who is different from me does not diminish me but enriches me. God bestows his gifts freely. Our responsibility is to welcome those gifts wherever they appear.
Jesus said that anyone who gave the little ones even a cup of cold water would be rewarded. The ‘cup of cold water’ is a symbol of the small kind deed.

Smaoineamh

It’s not what I do but what I am that is important. One’s self-worth should not depend on the work one does. It’s possible to possess an attitude of self-worth and accomplishment, regardless of what one does for a living. There’s a lot of talk nowadays about self-esteem. And rightly so, because it is a pretty basic thing. But if we want to feel proud of ourselves, we’ve got to do things we can be proud of. What might those kind of things be? Jesus tells us what they are. They are deeds of love and service. He set the example himself. He gave his life in the service of others.

Smaoineamh
The question Jesus asked the apostles is the most important question in the Gospel. It concerns the identity of Jesus. He asked the question not for his own sake but for their sake. A question forces people to think about their beliefs. It is important for us to come up with our own answers; to be able to state our own values and beliefs as Christians. It is no longer sufficient merely to repeat the official answers. We have to make the faith our own for it to be alive and influential in our lives. Our parents’ faith is not ours until we walk the journey ourselves. We need to grow in our understanding of the faith. We must believe out of personal conviction. The more of such people we have in the Church, the more it is founded on rock.

Life-giving God, we thank you.
You have always watched over us,
You have blessed us with signs of your presence,
We come to you now as we find ourselves
needing new life.
We are in need of energy and renewed hope,
We are in need of your grace
to re-direct our hearts.

Lord, may our time together
be an opportunity to give thanks,
to redefine our vision,
to search, and to be shaped and re-shaped
through reflection, interaction, challenge
and your forming love.
May we find among us the light of hope and love.

Smaoineamh
We all experience setbacks. Some are serious, challenging and can knock us right off our track. Other setbacks are much less serious. When these happen we can just readjust and simply move on. But for some these lesser setbacks are as if the world has come to an end. We hear a litany of complaining and giving out. When such lesser setbacks are put next to other people’s real stories and pain, these lesser setbacks fade into total insignificance. Smaller setbacks and knocks are a feature of all our lives. Let’s be honest we’re luckier than most and we can count our blessings. We pray today for any person or family who really is experiencing those tough and difficult setbacks in life.
