All-powerful God, you are present in the whole universe and in the smallest of your creatures.
You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.
Pour out upon us the power of your love,
that we may protect life and beauty.
Fill us with peace, that we may live
as brothers and sisters, harming no one.

O God of the poor,
Help us to rescue the abandoned and forgotten of this earth so precious in your eyes.

Touch the hearts
of those who look only for gain
at the expense of the poor and the earth.
Teach us to discover the worth of each thing,
to be filled with awe and contemplation,
to recognize that we are profoundly united
with every creature
as we journey towards your infinite light. Amen

Scoilbhliain Nua 2019 /2020
Guímid gach rath ar shaothar ár múinteoirí is ár scoláirí ag filleadh ar scoil tar éis an tSamhraidh. Tús maith leath na hoibre.

For a long time, Western Christianity was marked by a deep pessimism. Most were surely going to hell! In sum, we seem to have moved from clarity and pessimism to agnosticism and optimism. A necessary rebalancing, of course, but with the attendant risk of complacency, convinced as we are, and ought to be, of God’s boundless mercy, love and compassion. These gifts, on the other hand, should not trigger a kind of lazy confidence but should invite even greater engagement, commitment and costly discipleship. God desires the whole person, all that I am. Prayer God of costly love, help us to take up the path of discipleship and respond to your Son’s call by giving our whole selves to you and the Gospel. Amen.
Pray for Margaret Moriarty, (nee Hannafin), Emilough Slat; Vivian O’Shea, (nee Sheehy), The Wood; Hannah Breslin, (nee Moriarty), London and late of Tigh na hAbhann, Glens; Pajo Queally, Dungarvan, Co. Waterford.

Kerry Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes August 29th – 3rd September. The dates have been changed because flights are not available on a Saturday or Sunday. Unfortunately it clashes with Croke Park!
