Introducing the New Missal on Nov. 27th

Why the response, ‘And with your spirit’?

This response ‘And with your spirit’ is one of the very obvious changes as we use the new edition of the Missal. When the priest proclaims ‘The Lord be with you’, the new response from the congregation, ‘And with your spirit’, will replace the wording of the previous response which occurs before the Gospel, at the beginning of the Eucharistic Prayer and at the Blessing at the end of Mass.

‘And with your spirit’ is the literal translation of what we find in the Latin text, ‘et cum spiritu tuo’. This translation is already found in other languages, for example, German, Italian, French and Spanish.

Scripture is very much the source for this dialogue between priest and people. In four letters of St. Paul he uses the following greetings: Galatians 6:18 – ‘May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit’; Philippians 4:23 – ‘ The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit’; 2 Timothy 4:22 – ‘The Lord be with your spirit’; Philemon 25 – ‘The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit’. Similar greetings can be found in the Old Testament.

What does ‘your spirit’ mean? It is not a reference to the Holy Spirit, though it is spoken by people who live according to that Spirit. For St. Paul the spirit is our spiritual part that is closest to God. ‘And with your spirit’ is about having the spirit or mind of Christ as your guiding light, as what guide us through the day – a Christian spirit.

While it will sound unfamiliar to us, this greeting and response captures our biblical roots. It is recognition of the spirit that is among us as Christians, a spirit that we must live, and in greeting one another, it proclaims the presence of Christ among us.    (to be continued).

Oilithreacht na Gaeltachta 2012

The pilgrim party of 94 departed Kerry Airport for Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine on Friday last returning on Wednesday next October 12.

Is maith an bhean Muire mhór,

Máthair Ardrí na sló síor.

Siad a grása is gnáth lán.

Bean do chuir fál fó gach tír.


Bean í dá gclaonann ceart,

Bean is mó neart is brí,

Bean is boige fá ór dearg,

Bean le gcoisctear fearg an Rí.


Bean do bheir radharc do dhall,

Bean is treise thall ar neamh,

Bean do thóg mo naimhde díom

Bean is díon dom ar gach cath. (Trad.)



For a number of weeks now the RCIA, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, has been featuring in the Parish News Letters of the Deanery of Chorca Dhuibhne.  Parishioners have been reminded of their baptismal calling to share, through the out pouring of the Holy Spirit, in the life and mission of Christ.  It is a calling to proclaim the Gospel and share with the world the Good News of God’s generous and unconditional love that, as Catholics, we have been privileged to know and live through the gift of faith.

The Rite stresses that all, as individuals and as members of the Church and faith community in a particular parish or area, have a vital contribution to make to the mission of the Church by being unselfish in sharing the gifts which each one of us has received from God through the Holy Spirit, especially the gift of faith.

The RCIA, therefore, is not just the concern of the priests; nor is it just the concern of the team who have been invited to lead and facilitate the RCIA programme.  It is a shared responsibility.  We are all involved!  In taking this duty, this call to mission, seriously our own faith will be strengthened, our lives will be greatly enriched and so will the life of our communities as we welcome new members and open our lives to the gifts they bring with them.

If you are still wondering what the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is all about and why it should concern you, the RCIA team are providing two evening sessions in the Díseart on:

Tuesday 18th of October 8.00 to 930pm: The RCIA: The Vision of Vatican II for the Church of the Future.


Tuesday 25th of October 8.00 to 9.30pm: The RCIA: A Challenge to our Church today.

NB: All are welcome to attend. Fáilte roimh cách.
