Thought for the Day: Joy in believing might seem an “extra” in today’s challenging climate for faith. Many of us struggle simply to hold on, not to mention being exuberant about it all. And yet, of course there is deep happiness in faith. First of all, everything around is a gift and behind all the gifts stands a giver. Secondly, love is at the heart of it all and, in the faith, nothing is ever “lost” or “wasted.” Faith, hope and love endure and the greatest of these is love. Finally, why not “permit” ourselves true joy in all that God has done for us and still does for us in Jesus and in the Holy Spirit? Prayer: We believe, loving God, that you take delight in all you have made. Open up in us again the springs of joy, that we may delight in you, our true joy.

Pope Francis Twitter: The Word of God plunges us into daily life and calls us to listen to the cry of the poor and heed the violence and injustice that wound our world. It challenges Christians not to be indifferent,
but to be active, creative and prophetic.

Vocations: ‘Just as John the Baptist answered the call to be a “voice in the wilderness” to “prepare a way for the Lord” – we pray for those in our society who are called to be the voice in the wilderness of our modern society by living their lives in service as a priest, deacon or religious.’ If interested in becoming a Priest, please contact Fr Michael Moynihan.

Ó Tairse Chugainn Emmanuel
Ó tairse chugainn, Emmanuel
Is fuascail óna géibhinn, Israel.
Ar deóraíocht fós ar fhásach an domhain,
Ag tnúth le h-Aon Mhac Dé a theacht go teann. Curfá: Ardaigh do chroí, a Israel
Is tiocfaidh chugat Emmanuel.
