Thought for the day: To us, leprosy or any serious skin condition is a medical and perhaps a cosmetic issue. In Jesus’ day, by contrast, such things entailed social exclusion and the sufferer became literally untouchable. Hence the shock in the Gospel: he touched him. Before congratulating ourselves for not being so “primitive,” it might not be any harm to ask who are the marginalised and excluded in our own time and culture? The categories are wide: socio-economic groups, ethnicity, orientation, religion. Are there people I never encounter? Prayer: Where charity and love prevail, there God is ever found; Brought here together by Christ’s love, by love are we thus bound. No race or creed can love exclude, if honoured be God’s name; our common life embraces all whose Father is the same. Fr K. O’Mahony OSA.

Ash Wednesday 2021 February 17th, is a day of fast and abstinence. To celebrate Ash Wednesday, you are invited to participate in Masses online. There will be no distribution of ashes at Masses. Lent calls us to ‘come back to God with all our heart’ and the practices of prayer, fasting and giving to charity are a way of making real our return to God. Ashes marking our foreheads remind us of our human frailty and our dependence on God. This year, people are invited to trace the sign of the cross on themselves or on each others’ foreheads at home. Marking Ash Wednesday at Home is a prayer resource available on www.dioceseofkerry.ie

Mass Cards are available from the Parish Office. You can ring 066-9151208 and we can arrange for you to call or the cards can be posted out to anyone who requires them.

Online giving You can make a donation to the Parish by clicking on the Donate button on our Parish website. €415.76 received since Jan 1st. Many thanks for your generosity.

Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
