Machnamh / Reflection
May the love of the Spirit enfold us,
May the strength of the Spirit uphold us,
May the peace of the Spirit refresh us,
May the joy of the Spirit uplift us,
May the light of the Spirit shine on us,
May the wisdom of the Spirit guide us,
May the breath of the Spirit rekindle us,
May the Spirit renew our inmost being.
Pray for Bridie O’Shea, (nee Kennedy), Glens; Nora Landers, (nee Kennedy), Ballinahunt, Annascaul and late of Doonties; Micheál Sheehy, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary; Roibeárd Thornton, Limerick and Lixnaw.

Smaoineamh / Just a Thought
The Good News is that salvation is not achieved through our own merits, but through the goodness of God. This is the heart of the Good news. The only thing to be done is to open our hearts to the Saviour who has come to bring us salvation and joy.
Jesus didn’t merely announce the Good News and leave it at that. He began to make it a reality.
