Thought for the day:  In the most generous perspective, the desire for retaliation represents a longing for justice and equity. For example, “an eye for an eye.” Such justice is easily distorted into vengeance, hence the limiting of vengeance to precisely equal retaliation in the Old Testament. That tempering of vengeance does not really go far enough. The problem is responding in kind, the ultimate logic of which would be one person left with one eye!! Jesus goes to the heart of the matter: do not respond to violence with violence, do not engage at the level offered. Instead, turn the dynamic on its head: love your enemies and break the cycle of hatred and violence. Prayer: Help us, compassionate God, to take to heart the teaching of Jesus that love without limit may be our rule of life.

Synodal Path: Pope Francis’s Invitation & Our Response. Pope Francis has invited every member of the Church throughout the world to share their experiences, insights and hopes for the Church. Every diocese has been asked to give opportunities for reflection, discussion and feedback in preparation for the Synod of Bishops in 2023. Here in the Diocese of Kerry there is the opportunity to share your thoughts on-line or to participate in person in the next 2 months. For details see: https://www.dioceseofkerry.ie/Synod

Daily Prayer for Synodal Listening

God our Father,
Pope Francis has asked us to pray, discuss and listen, so that we might grow stronger in communion, more aware of our mission,
and truly participate in the life of our Church.
May the Holy Spirit help us to hear His voice
during this time of listening in our Diocese.
We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Pope Francis – Tweet: Fraternal love is a gymnasium of the spirit, where day by day we measure ourselves and test our spiritual life.

Ardfert Retreat Centre: In August 2020 and following a request from Talbot Grove (now The Grove), Castleisland, a lease was entered into with them for the use of Ardfert Retreat Centre for an initial term of one year.

The Grove has now approached the Diocese about acquiring Ardfert Retreat Centre.  Following negotiations, the Diocese wishes to advise that it is proposed to sell the Ardfert Retreat Centre to the Grove.  The Diocese has had a long association with Talbot Grove and their mission is compatible with the spirit of the Gospel.

After many years great service, Sr. Elizabeth has retired as director of Ardfert Retreat Centre, and we wish to thank her and indeed her predecessors for their work in the Centre. We also wish to thank the various members of staff, volunteers and the contact people for their work and dedication down the years. Lastly, we thank the people of the Diocese and especially the people of Ardfert for their support of Ardfert Retreat Centre since it opened its doors in 1981. We would ask you to join with us in wishing all in The Grove every success as a new chapter opens in the life of Ardfert Retreat Centre. Diocese of Kerry, February 2022

Coiste Fhéile na Bealtaine would like to thank everyone for their help and generosity with the recent 31 Card Drive.
