Ár gCóineartú
Our Patron Saints / Laochra an Chreidimh No. 92. Saint Peter had a brother called Andrew and they both worked as fishermen on Lake Genesareth. Saint Peter was the first Pope. Andrew introduced Peter to Jesus and Christ called Peter to become a disciple. Peter caught such a large amount of fish that he fell down at Jesus’ feet and was told by the Lord “Do not be afraid: from now on you will be catching men”. In Tiberias the Lord gave Peter the famous command to “Feed my Lambs … Tend my Sheep … Feed my Sheep”.

Aiséirí Chríost in our Christian Heritage
When we speak of the Last Judgement we are more inclined to think of people being condemned to Hell rather than the blessed entering Heaven. Yet the whole purpose of creation, Redemption and God’s Providence, is that all should be among the blessed entering Heaven. Yet the balance must be struck. The Judgement is an article of Faith. This Judgement has featured in many famous paintings, the most notable one being that of Michaelangelo’s. But in the Irish High Crosses the Last Judgement finds artistic expression of great depth. In Muiredach’s Cross, in the Last Judgement scene, Christ stands holding a cross in one hand and a sceptre in the other. Above him is a bird, a Phoenix, the symbol of the Resurrection. An angel blows the last trumpet. Below Christ, St. Michael is shown weighing souls and thrusting his spear in the mouth of a demon who is trying to upset the balance. On one side is the company of the blessed, singing. On the other side the damned are being driven into Hell by the devil brandishing a trident. Angels hold a book … the Book of Judgement. We must find ourselves rejoicing with the blessed-rejoicing with the Risen Christ. Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

St. Mary’s Jubilee Prayer
Faithful God,
we thank You for this House of Prayer,
symbol of our union with You,
with each other, and with our own community.

We thank You for the vision
of all the people who sacrificed
to build this church.

Within these walls,
you call on us to come together and
create a loving welcoming parish family.

From these walls,
you call us out into our station districts,
our diocese and our world
to be Your hands and feet
and to help build your Kingdom on earth.

May we respond to your timeless Word
and become truly Eucharistic people.

May we go forth filled with your sense of mercy,
justice, and loving care.

May we be good stewards of your creation,
guarding and celebrating your gift of life.
In this Year of Jubilee,
we ask You to touch our hearts anew
with the love of Christ your Son and
the fire of Your Holy Spirit.
Fill our lives with the courage
to honour our history,
to strengthen our Faith and
to prepare for our future.
We ask this through your Son,
Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
O Mary conceived without sin,
Pray for us who have recourse to thee.

An Séipéal
Is beannaithe tigh Dé
Is beannaímid féin dó
Mar a bhfuil sé leis an dá aspal déag.
Go mbeannaí Mac Dé dúinn.
(Saltair: Urnaithe Dúchais – Ó Fiannachta/Forristal)
