Our Patron Saints / Laochra an Chreidimh No. 91. Saint Isabelle. Isabelle was the daughter of Louis VIII of France and Blanche of Castile. She was a young sister of King Louis IX of France. She is honoured as a saint by the Franciscan Order. Isabelle’s father died when she was 2 years old and it was her mother Blanche who oversaw her education. Like her brother she studied Latin and became an expert in the language.
When still a child at court Isabelle was already devoted to religion. By the Papal Bull of 26th May 1254 Pope Innocent IV allowed her to retain some Franciscan friars as her special confessors. She was even more devoted to the Franciscan order than her royal brother. She not only broke off her engagement with a Count Hugh XI of Husignan but moreover refused the hand of Conrad IV of Germany, son of Frederick II, Holy Roman Emperor, although pressed to accept him by everyone, even by Innocent IV, who however did not hesitate subsequently to praise her fixed determination to remain a single woman. I chose Isabelle because I admire her devotion to religion and to the Franciscans. We celebrate her feast day on the 26th of February. (Clara – Scoil Eoin Baiste)

An tSeachtain Mhór
Passion Sunday (Palm Sunday) Holy Week begins on this Sunday with the commemoration of the entrance of the Lord into Jerusalem. The palms are blessed and should be taken home, where they will serve as a reminder of the victory of Christ. Next year, they will be burned and placed on our foreheads on Ash Wednesday.
Mass of Chrism: The Bishop concelebrates with his college of priests on Tues 7:30pm in the Cathedral. He consecrates the holy oils used in the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Ordination and Anointing of the sick during the year.
Spy Wednesday when visiting Priests will hear confessions in Lios Póil at 7.30pm and St. Mary’s at 7:30pm.
The Easter Triduum The Fathers of the Church saw this celebration as a unitive commemoration: St Augustine spoke of ‘the most holy triduum of the crucified, buried & risen Lord’.
Holy Thursday This Mass is, first of all, the memorial of the institution of the Eucharist. The tradition of washing the feet is maintained. The Altar of Repose for the reservation of the Blessed Sacrament that will be distributed in Communion on Good Friday, should be prepared and adorned in such a way as to be conductive to prayer and meditation. The faithful are encouraged to spend some time at the Altar of Repose during this night, before the Blessed Sacrament.
Good Friday Celebration of the Lord’s Passion. On this day when ‘Christ our passover was sacrificed’ (1 Cor 5:7), the Church meditates on the Passion of her Lord, venerates the Cross, commemorates her origin from the side of Christ on the Cross, and intercedes for the salvation of the whole world. On this day, in accordance with ancient tradition, the Church does not celebrate Eucharist; Holy Communion is distributed to the faithful during the celebration of the Lord’s Passion. Devotions, such as the Way of the Cross are encouraged today.
The Easter Vigil In accordance with ancient tradition, this night is one of the Vigil for the Lord. St. Augustine called it the ‘mother of all vigils’. There are four parts to the Rite: 1. Service of Light: The new fire should be blessed to light the Paschal Candle. 2. Liturgy of the Word 3. Liturgy of Baptism when all congregations renew their baptismal vows and in Dingle we celebrate the Baptism of a newly born child. 4. Liturgy of the Eucharist. ‘Christ is Risen, Alleluia!’
