Thought for the day: For us eternal life usually means the next life and it can sound remote and unreal. The Fourth Gospel, where the expression occurs seventeen times, can be of help. The last occurrence (17:2) teaches that eternal life is a quality of relationship which begins now in the present moment and which is indestructible (Heb 7:16). Prayer: Lord, we struggle to believe at all and we struggle to hold on to eternal life. Help us to hear your call in the present moment. Help us to know you and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. Help us to respond with full and trusting hearts, now and into the future. Fr K O’Mahony OSA.

Offertory Collection: Total: €1,804.
Míle buíochas.
