Share The Good News

Share The Good News is the title of the wonderful 10 year Master plan launched by Bishop Liam Ó Murchú and the Irish Episcopal Conference recently. It provides a framework for religious education and the ongoing work of evangelisation in the homes, schools and parishes of our country. “Together we can find the resources necessary to build on the time and talents we have been given by the Living God and so make the coming decade a period of great catechetical renewal.”

Blessed John Paul II

It has been announced that the late Pope John Paul II will be declared ‘Blessed’ at a special ceremony in Rome on Divine Mercy Sunday, 1st May 2011.  We Irish have many memories of Pope John Paul’s visit to our country and of his papacy.  At his funeral Mass, Pope Benedict said of him: In the first years of his pontificate, still young and full of energy, the Holy Father went to the very ends of the earth, guided by Christ. But afterwards, he increasingly entered into the communion of Christ’s sufferings; increasingly he understood the truth of the words: “Someone else will fasten a belt around you.” And in this very communion with the suffering Lord, tirelessly and with renewed intensity, he proclaimed the Gospel, the mystery of that love which goes to the end (cf. Jn 13:1).

Caiticiosma na hEaglaise Caitlicí

523 Is é Eoin Baiste gar-réamhtheachtaí an Tiarna, a seoladh chun an bóthar a réiteach dó. Mar ‘fáidh an Té is Airde’ (Lc. 1, 76), beireann sé barr ar na fáithe go léir, agus is é an duine deireanach orthu é. Cuireann sé tús sollúnta leis an soiscéal; ceiliúrann sé teacht Chríost I mbroinn a mháthar dó agus is cúis lúcháire dó gurb é ‘cara an chéile’ é (Eoin 3, 29) a thaispeánann sé mar ‘Uan Dé a thógann peaca an domhain’ (Eoin 1, 29). Ag teacht ar cheann Íosa dó, ‘le spiorad is le cumhacht Éilia’ (Lc. 1, 17), tugann sé fianacht ina leith trína sheanmóireacht, trína bhaisteadh chun aithrí agus, ar deireadh trína mhairtíreacht.

World Day for Migrants and Refugees

Today is 97th World Day for Migrants and Refugees.


“The World Day of Migrants and Refugees offers the whole Church an opportunity to reflect on a theme linked to the growing phenomenon of migration, to pray that hearts may open to Christian welcome and to the effort to increase in the world justice and charity, pillars on which to build an authentic and lasting peace,” wrote the Pontiff.  “All,” he continued, “belong to one family, migrants and the local populations that welcome them, and all have the same right to enjoy the goods of the earth whose

destination is universal, as the social doctrine of the Church teaches. It is here that solidarity and sharing are founded.”

Prayer for One Human Family

Good and gracious God,

we thank you for the gift of families.

We are grateful for all of the joy and love

that they bring into our lives,

and we ask that you provide

special protection for all families,

particularly those who face hardships

as they move in search of a better life.

Show mercy to those who travel in danger,

and lead them to a place of safety and peace.

Comfort those who are alone and afraid because

their families have been torn apart by violence

and injustice.

As we reflect upon the difficult journey

that the Holy Family faced as refugees in Egypt,

help us to remember the suffering of all migrant families.

Through the intercession of Mary our Mother,

and St. Joseph the Worker, her spouse,

we pray that all migrants may be reunited with their loved ones

and find the meaningful work they seek.

Open our hearts so that we may provide hospitality

for all who come in search of refuge.

Give us the courage to welcome every stranger

as Christ in our midst.

Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayers of the Faithful

As members of the human family, and family of God, gathered in this place, we place our needs before the Lord.


1. We pray for the leaders of our Church:  May they always put before us the need to welcome the stranger.  Lord hear us.


2. We pray for all God’s people:  May we be open and welcoming to our brothers and sisters from many other places and cultures who have come to live among us.  Lord hear us.


3. We pray for those who have been forced to leave their homes; those studying and working abroad; those on the missions:  May they find a welcome, and be able to make a contribution to the countries

in which they settle.  Lord hear us.



A Uain dhílis De na Páise,

Go dtóga tú ceo na bpeacaí dár n-anam.

Ár bPaidreacha Dúchais.
