Machnamh / Reflection

Holy Spirit, let my heart be open to you.
Help me to see Jesus in myself
and in everyone I meet.
Be with me each day for the rest of my life,
in my thoughts, in my words and in my actions.
Help me to carry out the work
for which I was created and called.
Fill me with your special peace
that I may walk close to Jesus,
Now and forever.

Suggestions for Lent 2016
• Visit someone who may be living alone
• Come to Mass every weekend
• Become a volunteer in the Parish
• Fast and Pray
• Support Trócaire’s Lenten campaign
• Join us for the Stations of the Cross every Friday evening at 7:05pm
• Celebrate the Sacrament of Confession
• Pray and reflect at the Adoration on Tuesdays

Stations of the Cross
Every Friday of Lent at 7.05pm, followed by Mass at 7.30pm.

We hope to create an Easter Garden in our three churches this year. A set of figures will be purchased for each church. It is also intended to place a new Holy Water Container in each church.
We welcome anyone who would like to make a donation / sponsor any of the above. Please contact the Parish for details.

Just a Thought / Smaoineamh
Christians rarely ask themselves the question: What have I failed to do? The call to repentance is not merely a call to turn away from evil, but a call to ‘produce the fruits’ of good living. That is why it is relevant for everybody. Jesus’ call to repentance disturbs us, and we don’t like to be disturbed. We want our quiet life, a life which may contain a lot of selfishness. We may not be guilty of great evil, yet we could be very selfish, very demanding, very inconsiderate. But we don’t want to know, much less do anything, about this side of our nature. We are being called from being self-centred, to become other-centred and God-centred.

Pray for Mary Lynch, Kilfountain; Pádraig Mac Gearailt, Baile Roe, Baile na nGall.
