Prayer to St. Brigid
You were a woman of peace,
You brought harmony where
there was conflict.
You brought light to the darkness.
You brought hope to the downcast.
May the mantle of your peace
cover those who are troubled and anxious,
and may peace be firmly rooted
in our hearts and in our world.
Inspire us to act justly and to
reverence all God has made.
Brigid you were a voice for the
wounded and the weary.
Strengthen what is weak within us.
Calm us into a quietness that heals and listens.
May we grow each day into greater
wholeness in mind, body and spirit.
Blessing of Throats
St. Blaise is the patron saint of sore throats and his feast day falls on this Sunday February 3rd. There will be blessing of throats after all Masses on Saturday and Sunday.
Through the intercession of Saint Blaise, bishop and martyr,
may God deliver you from all ailments of the throat
and from every other evil: + in the name of the Father,
and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Ár mbuíochas le Cór Naomh Muire agus gach éinne a bhí páirteach san Aifreann a craoladh ó Séipéal Naomh Muire Dé Domhnaigh seo caite. Mo cheol sibh. Táimid fíor bhuíoch do Raidió na Gaeltachta as a dtacaíocht seirbhíse.
On Candlemas day, many candles are blessed in churches. These candles will then be used throughout the year for many different occasions. From a faith perspective candles have always represented the light of Christ. We live in a world that is often darkened by evil and darker forces. We believe that the light of Christ is powerful and strong enough to wipe out all forms of darkness. We have to choose the light, we need to share it with others and we need to be proud of our own light. Today we invite God’s light into our lives, into our darker corners and wherever such light is most needed at the moment.
