May Altar in Your Home We invite every home to set up a simple May Altar during Our Lady’s Month. All children of this year’s Confirmation and Do This in Memory programmes were invited to create a Sacred Space at home. I remember, wading in a haze of blue Plucking the pale green stems As hours pass And binding with a stalk of grass. I remember listening to the glory Of a child Born to a woman in a far-off land Listening to the words in silent awe Of Word made flesh And laid to sleep in straw. I remember singing with the others Out of tune watching the night-light Flicker in the bowl Singing aloud The Queen of May to greet. My bluebells nodding time Before her feet.

Let’s Listen What have you to say about Church today? Bishop Liam Ó Murchú announced this Diocesan listening programme during the Chrism in St. Mary’s Cathedral during Holy Week. The Diocesan Pastoral Council in conjunction with Corca Dhuibhne Pastoral Area Council have arranged our Meeting for Benner’s Hotel, Dingle on Wednesday 26th May next at 8pm. You are most welcome to attend in order to explore and discuss issues relevant to the Catholic Church in Ireland today. It is hoped that all members of the Boards of Management of National Schools in the Deanery, all involved in Parish activities together with our Safeguarding Children teams will be in attendance as well. Bishop Liam’s express hope is that area gatherings like this can enable us to listen to one another at this time in our Church’s history and move forward together as Pobal Dé. Please take and read Pope Benedict’s Pastoral Letter to the Catholics of Ireland. (Copies as Béarla agus as Gaeilge in Porch) Deacon Marc Stenger from Limburg in Germany, who visited us during Easter Week, asks your prayers as he is to be ordained priest on Pentecost Sunday. He hopes to visit us in June. Ad multos annos. “A Bhréanainn Naofa” 16ú Bealtaine Iomann Bhréanainn Naofa A Bhréanainn Naofa, ár laoch ‘s ár n-éarlamh, An saol so thréigis nuair ghlaoigh Mac Dé Ort; Do dhreapais sléibhte mar Mhaois is Élias, Is Críost é féinig go cnoc a chéasta. Id’ naomhóig shnasta do threabhais an bhóchna, Ag súil go gcasfaí i dTír na mbeo thú; Cheiliúrais Aifreann ‘s an míol mar fhód fút, ‘s do thine Chásca do las mar lóchrann.

Do Saolaíodh mé ar chósta Garbh áidh, Fé bhun na Sléibhte dubh cois trá; Mo leaba, luachair úr i bpluais, Mo Chiniúint pé ní ur a thug an lá. Mo chúram-sa de ló is d’oíche riamh … An taon Bhrionglóid im thearc-shuan bhíodh; An saol nea-fhillteach úd ag sleamhnú uaim Is an saol neamh-aithnid úd thar uaigh. (An t-Athair Tomás Ó hIceadha) “I grew to manhood by the western wave, among the mighty mountains on the shore; My bed the rock within some natural cave, My food what e’er the seas or seasons bore; My occupation morn and noon and night, … The only dream my hasty slumbers gave, was Time’s unheeding, unreturning flight And the Great World that lies beyond the grave”. (Fr. Pat Ahern) T.V. Broadcast of Aifreann Dé from Brandon Creek, Cuas Dé Domhnaigh 16ú Bealtaine: Fr.

Go n-éirí go geal le Tomás Ó Grifín, Tomás agus Marc Ó Sé agus a gcompánaigh na Ríochta i dTúrlas Éile Dé Domhnaigh. Ciarraí Abú. An Ghorta Guí an Phobail: (1) On this day when we remember the tragedy of the great famine in Ireland we pray for a change of heart that will bring to an end to the injustice that keeps people hungry and oppressed. Lord, hear us. (2) We pray that leaders with compassionate hearts and courageous imagination will come forward to work for change and bring about justice and peace. Lord, hear us. (3) For the poor and hungry, that they may find comfort and support in and through the generosity of the Christian community. Lord, hear us. (4) Remembering the words of Jesus ‘You will be witnesses.. to the ends of the earth’ we pray that all gathered here may find courage to stand up to defend the weakest and most distressed in our world. Lord, hear us. National Famine Commemoration Day “You will be my Witnesses” As the country holds the second National Famine Commemoration Day, we are confronted by the shocking reality that more than one billion people on the planet are victims of hunger. Remembering the millions who died or were forced to emigrate at the time of the Irish Famine brings to mind that almost one in six of the world’s people does not have enough food to eat today. On this Ascension Day we hear the words of Jesus: “You will be my witnesses …. To the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8). As witnesses to Christ’s love we are challenged to ‘feed the hungry’ an to give concrete expression to Christ’s deep concern for the poor. In his recent encyclical, Caritas in Veritate, Pope Benedict XVI pointed out that the elimination of world hunger has become a requirement for safeguarding the peace and stability of the planet. It is necessary, wrote the Holy Father, ‘to cultivate a public conscience that considers food and access to water as universal rights of all human beings, without distinction or discrimination’. In September 2010 world leaders will gather at the United Nations in New York to assess progress in implementing the Millennium Development Goals (MDG). Included in the first of these is an international determination to reduce by half the number of people living in hunger by the year 2015. Agencies like Trócaire are actively engaged in the MDG process. The Irish government made a special commitment to pursue this target particularly in the light of our national experience of famine. As we urge other developed countries to meet their commitments on development aid, fair trade and the relief of debt, we too must fulfil our responsibilities in these areas. We owe it to those who suffered at the time of the Irish Famine to stand in solidarity with the hungry of today. (Statement by the Irish Bishops) We encourage parish communities to find an appropriate way of marking the National Famine Commemoration Day locally. Trócaire Boxes / Envelopes Please remember to return your Trócaire Boxes as soon as possible, if you have not already done so. Your support of Trócaire is vital. Trócaire received to date: €5,166. Buíochas ó chroí for your great generosity. DeafHear.ie: Free hearing screening at the Library, Dingle, Thursday 20th May 11am – 4pm.
