Abiding Challenge of Eucharistic Congress
Continued from last week:
When we pray the Our Father we pray “Give us this day our daily bread” – What does that mean? It is interesting to note that the original word, which we translate as ‘daily’ was in fact a completely new word. It had never been used before. The original word was epiousios, a Greek word meaning ‘substance from above’. What is this ‘substance from above’ which we are invited to eat? Is it simply Holy Communion or everything that Jesus said and stood for? After all He called himself the Word, invited us to listen to Him and invited us to eat His Body and drink His Blood – to take into ourselves His whole life.
Jesus above all saw Himself as a servant of the Kingdom of God. His opening words were:
“The time is fulfilled” – Now is the opportunity to look deeply into the true meaning of what it is to be a Eucharistic People.
“The Kingdom of God has come near” – The idea of kingdom carries with it a sense of power, pomp and the privilege of official authority – in the mind of Jesus it represents the direct opposite of all that – it is about empowering the vulnerable, giving true value to all, including women, who in his day were considered less than fully human, helping people to recognise their natural authority. No wonder the ‘powers that be’ both religious and political saw Jesus as a threat and conspired to remove him from the scene.
“Repent” – Change your way of seeing – walk a different road – see the world and others through the eyes of Jesus.
“Believe the Good News” – The good news is not a set of doctrines or teachings but a person. We are called into a radical relationship with the person of Jesus, the Christ, and with one another. It is He who give us our true identity – “I am because we are”.
Every Eucharist is a celebration of these realities and an invitation to allow them to come to birth in our lives in our communities. This is the challenge and the opportunity offered by the Eucharistic Congress. Pray that the opportunity is not let slip into simple pious devotion, important though that can be.
A riddle posed by Fr. Tom Hamill puts the possibilities rather well.
“What’s the priority of our contemporary Church? Love or Power?”
· We’re caught between The-Love-of-Power, & The-Power-of-Love!
· Obvious! Since The Church is divine, its priority must be Love!
· Its priority will be Power, until its Masculinity is mitigated by Inclusivity!
· When The Holy Spirit is embraced, is it She who will choose our priority!
(Fr. Ken O’Riordan: The Emissary 2011 – Manchester)
An tAthair Bernard: Aifreann Buíochais agus Slán

Bernard as he takes up his new appointment in St. John’s, Tralee.
The Dingle Races
There is a little town in Kerry
And it is pretty far away
But the crowds are sure to be there
On Dingle Derby Day.

The Kerry folk are magic
They’re really on their own
The Derby’s run in Dingle
The National in Listowel.

Some people who go racing
You see them everywhere
There always in the Cotswolds
At Beechers and the Chair.

They’re sure to be in Kerry
Killarney and Tralee
And then they’re back in Dingle
Just after Ballabuidhe.

Now the Ponies going to Dingle
Are the fastest of them all
They come from every county
Cork to Donegal.

Now just to be in Dingle
On a nice fine Autumn day
With all the ponies racing
And the dolphin in the Bay.

There’s nowhere else I’d rather be
That’s all I have to say
So just goodbye to Dingle
Until another day.

Examination Results
Best wishes to all those who will be receiving their Leaving Certificate examination results during the week. We pray that our young people will have the help and the guidance of the Holy Spirit as they choose their path for the future. May they always know the presence of God in their lives and respond generously to His call to use their gifts and talents wisely.
Tar, a Spioraid Naoimh.
Líon anama na bhfíréan
agus las tine do ghrá iontu.
Seol uait do Spiorad agus cruthófar iad
agus athnuachfaidh tú an domhan go léir.
Tusa a theagasc croíthe na bhfíréan
trí sholas an Spioraid Naoimh.
Deónaigh, trí dheontas an Spioraid chéanna
go mbeidh muid I gcónaí fíor-chríonna
agus go siorraí gliondrach I n-a shonas.
Trí Chríost Ár dTiarna. Amén.
