Crib Proceeds 2022  – Kenya Report Rota to August 2023 Message from Fr Michael Moynihan – It is good to notice signs of Spring in the world around us. Daffodils and other flowers are making a welcome appearance, buds are appearing and days are getting longer. All signs of hope. On Monday next we will have a Bank Holiday in honour of St Bridget. There is much debate as to who she was and what she did. As followers of Christ, it is good to remember her Christian faith, a faith that she lived and passed on to her many followers. Paidir – Naomh Bríd A Naomh Bríde, a Mhuire na nGael, Scar orainn do bhrat, A Naomh Bríde, a chroí na féile, Stiúraigh sinn ar an mbóthar ceart, A Naomh Bríde, grástúil geanúil, Ar an namhaid cosain sinn, A Naomh Bríde, a bhean rialta álainn, Ar uair ár mbáis, glaoigh orainn. First Communion children and their families are welcome to the Masses of preparation on the weekends of Feb 4th/5th and Feb 11th/12th. Our parish programme for preparation for the sacraments continues. Parents and guardian are encouraged to help their child on their journey of faith. This can be done through helping create a sense of wonder at the great things that God has done in their lives and giving thanks in prayer to God Tap to Donate terminals are now located at the back of St Mary’s Church. Machines are programmed to donate €5 to the Parish each time they are used. A Diocesan Collection in aid of Lourdes Helpers will be taken up at Masses on February 4th/5th. There will be separate boxes at the back of the Churches of the Parish. The Diocesan Pilgrimage will depart Kerry Airport, September 1st for five nights. The main purpose of the pilgrimage is to take the sick to Lourdes and for this, helpers are needed. Many of those who help are students and require help to finance the trip. The Lourdes Helpers Fund also helps assisted pilgrims who may not be able to afford to pay the full fare. Mass and Anointing of the Sick will be held in St. Mary’s Church, Dingle on the Feast-day of Our Lady of Lourdes, Saturday February 11th at 12.00 noon. All are welcome, especially those who wish to receive the Sacrament of the Sick and those who would like to pray for a loved one that is sick. Many thanks to all who helped put up the Cribs in the churches of the parish for Christmas 2022. Christmas Crib donations amounted to €2,192.00. This will be given to the local students who are involved with Cara projects in Kenya. Your support for the is greatly appreciated. Parish Office is now open at the Presbytery, Dingle.

Machnamh/Reflection: Lord, make me an instrument of your love. Where the darkness of loneliness reigns let me bring the light of friendship. Where the darkness of bitterness reigns let me bring the light of forgiveness. Where the darkness of hurt reigns let me bring the light of healing. Where the darkness of discord reigns let me bring the light of harmony. Where the darkness of sadness reigns let me bring the light of joy. Where the darkness of doubt reigns let me bring the light of faith. Where the darkness of despair reigns let me bring the light of hope. And where the darkness of hatred reigns let me bring the light of love. Amen (Flor McCarthy SDB) Our Gospel last weekend gave us the familiar account of the Beatitudes. In this His first public speech Jesus outlines His values which are often at odds with the values of the world. Followers of Christ are encouraged to make these values part of our everyday life. If we look at the values we find that we do practice them in some ways. We are called to practice them even more. For example, a time when somebody hurt you and you decided to forgive them saying “Don’t worry about it. Let’s forget it. Blessed are the merciful. Or have you been in a situation where you knew the right thing to do but you struggled with doing it, tempted to just not do so? Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness. Or have you been with someone who you knew was wrong in what he or she said? Knowing the truth, you decided not to correct them. You chose to not crush their spirit and you remained silent. Blessed are the meek and humble. The Beatitudes are worth a read (Matthew 5:1-12).
