Thought for the day: Special moments of “presence” are important to us, even though we may not often speak of them. These can happen in all sort of ways: at the birth of a child, in nature, while listening to music, in prayer, as we contemplate a work of art and so forth. In any case, always unexpectedly. Often we would be a little embarrassed to talk about such “epiphanies” for fear of seeming foolish or naive but, nevertheless, such intimations of something more really matter to us personally because they give the holy a foothold in our own experience. We would like to prolong such experiences, but that is not their nature (as Peter discovered!). Prayer: Help us, Lord, to recognise you more and more in the present moment of our lives, that our love for you may be real and our hope in you strong.More info: 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.
