Thought for the day: When Jesus presses the question, who do you say I am?, we feel him speaking to us. Naturally, we think of our faith now in the light of our own journey of life and pilgrimage of faith. How did I start out? What was my image of Jesus then and how did I relate to him? Have there been major turning points for me and can I name one or two? How have I deepened my familiarity with Jesus and who is he for me now? If I were to choose an image or a metaphor what would come to mind? If I were to explain to someone what my faith in Jesus is, what words would I use? Prayer: For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name. I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. (Eph. 3:14-17) tarsus.ie.

Prayer for Vocations

Blessed Trinity, Father, Son and Spirit,

we worship and praise You.

Father, through the Holy Spirit you give to every Christian a unique calling as you provide and care for the needs of your people.

Hear our prayers for our needs as parish communities. Bless our efforts to strengthen lay ministry. In our diocese and in all our parishes give to each person the grace

to discern, follow and live their calling.

Call forth from among us vocations to the diocesan priesthood. Fill the hearts of our priests and deacons with renewed Peace and Joy. Father, in all things ‘Thy will be done’.

We entrust our prayers to you through Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Season of Creation is marked in the Christian world Sept 1st to Oct 4th (Feast of St Francis of Assisi). This Season is a wonderful opportunity to respond to the call of Pope Francis to listen to the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor. As the ecological crisis worsens our news feeds are filled with stories of devastation, particularly in the most vulnerable parts of the world. Creation cries out as forests burn, animals flee, lives are lost and people are forced to migrate. The theme for this year’s Season is inspired by the Prophet Amos: “Let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!” (Amos 5: 24). As we join the river of justice and peace then hope is created instead of despair, “for we know that things can change!” (Laudato Si’, 13).
