Sao Paulo Christmas message
“I had occasion to reflect on this at a First Eucharist celebration in one of our shanty town (favelos) communities a few Sundays ago. There we were, sitting in a little chapel in the heart of what could only be described as an underground mine shaft. To get into it, required negotiating a series of dark, twising corridors, propped up by wooden beams. Every now and then, along the walls, light appeared from a window or an open door. An above, masses of tangled electric wires dangled worryingly in the semi-darkness.
Now and then, as you progressed, open spaces appeared where hordes of children and young people would congregate. And the sounds of loud music, booming out from the bars to be found here and there, was everywhere.
Maybe it was no accident, that our little chapel, dedicated to Our Lady of Aparecida, the patroness of Brazil, was at the heart of all this. As if she were trying to say that there is no place that she is a stranger to. And the poorer and more destitute, the more at home she is. For she is the lowly servant in whom mighty things were done for the sake of all humanity.
And for sure, mighty things had been done of late in this very place. Things that came, apparently out of nothing. Like the emergence of a faith community out of what could only be described as a desert of abandonment. All due mainly to the work of two nuns who live and work there.
Because of the simple presence of these two women, in a place where no one wants to go, visiting families in dark hovels, getting to know their needs and also their capacity for hope amidst such brokenness, people were now coming together to pray, to reflect on their lives and their situation and to feel empowered enough to believe that together, as a living community, they can change it.”

Laochra an Chreidimh No.16
Naomh Mhuire, Máthair Dé: While she was living in Nazareth with her parents, before she became the wife of Joseph, the angel Gabriel announced to her that she was to be the mother of the promised Messiah. After this she went to visit her cousin Elisabeth, who was living with her husband Zacharias, about 100 miles from Nazareth. Immediately on entering the house she was saluted by Elisabeth as the mother of her Lord. After three months Mary returned to Nazareth to her own home. Joseph was made aware of her condition, and took her to his own home. Soon after this, the decree of Augustus required that they should proceed to Bethlehem, some 80 or 90 miles from Nazareth; and while they were there they found shelter in the inn provided for strangers. But as the inn was crowded, Mary had to retire to a place among the cattle, and there she brought forth her son, who was called Jesus, because he was to save his people from their sins. This was followed by the presentation in the temple, the flight into Egypt, and their return in the following year and residence at Nazareth. There for thirty years Mary, the wife of Joseph the carpenter, resides, and thinks over the strange things that had happened to her. During these years only one event in the history of Jesus is recorded, viz., his going up to Jerusalem when twelve years of age, and his being found among the doctors in the temple. Probably also during this period Joseph died, for he is not again mentioned.
After the announcement of our Lord walking among us little notice is taken of Mary. She was present at the marriage in Cana. A year and a half after this we find her at Capernaum, where Christ uttered the memorable words, “Who is my mother? And who are my brothers? And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, “Behold my mother and my brothers!” The next time we find her is at the cross along with her sister Mary, and Mary Magdalene, and Salome, and other women. From that hour John took her to his own house. She was with the little company in the upper room after the Ascension. From this time she completely disappears from public notice. The time and manner of her death are unknown.
“I chose this name because I thought she was brave to just accept that she was to give birth to Jesus and not be afraid on how this could change her life for ever.”
