Bliain an Chreidimh – Our Patron Saints Laochra an Chreidimh No. 78.
St. Finnbarr – who is he? St. Finnbar or Baire was founder of the city and See of Cork. His original name was Lochun. He went to school at St. Killmacahill in Kilkenny. He set up his retreat at Green Hill in the valley named after him Gougane Barra. He is the Cork patron saint. St. Finbarr returned to Rome where Pope Gregory would have made him Pope but was deterred by a vision in which he learned that heaven had reserved this prerogative for itself. Accordingly, when Finnbar returned to Ireland Our Lord brought a flow of oil from the ground, caught him up to heaven and there consecrated him Bishop. The death of Finnbar took place in Cloyne and his body was brought back to Cork for burial. It is said the Sun failed to shine for a fortnight. The feast of Saint Finnbar is celebrated on September 25th. (Keith – Scoil Iognáid Rís)

Seachtain Aontacht na gCríostaithe
Gach bliain i mí Eanáir, leagann na heaglaisí Críostaí amach seachtain ar leith, 18ú – 25ú, chun guí ar son na haontachta. Is toil le Críost aontacht na gCríostaithe mar dúirt sé an phaidir seo an oíche roimh a bhás:
“Ionas go mba aon iad go léir, faoi mar atá tusa, a Athair, ionamsa agus mise ionatsa; go mbeidís seo ina n-aon ionainn i dtreo go gcreidfidh an saol gur chuir tú uait mé.” (Eoin: 17:21)
Tharla dhá mhór-scoilt in Eaglais Chríost:
 Sa bhliain 1054 scar Eaglais an Oirthis i gConstantinople ón Eaglais sa Róimh agus thug said Ceartchreidmhaigh orthu féin.
 Tharla scoilt san Eoraip san séú aois déag agus is as sin a d’fhás na hEaglaisí Protastúnacha, mar atá an Eaglais Liútarach, an Eaglais Chailvíneach agus an Eaglais Anglacánach.
Le céad bliain anuas tá na heaglaisí ag iarraidh na scoilteanna a leigheas. Tugtar Éacúiméineachas ar an iarracht sin.

Guí an Phobail
1. Iarraimis ar Dhia cabhrú linn aontacht a chothú in ionad easaontais inár saol laethúil féin. A Thiarna, éist linn. A Thiarna, bí ceansa agus éist linn.
2. Cabhraigh linn, a Dhia, meas ar dhaoine eile a chothú, agus comhoibriú leo inár saol féin.

World Day of Migrants and Refugees
Our Migration Statistics
The Central Statistic Office (CSO) report that The Republic of Ireland is now home to over 544,000 non-Irish nationals representing 199 different nations. 282, 799 declared themselves Catholic. During April 2012 – 2013 21,900 people emigrated to the UK; 6,200 emigrated to the US; 25,700 emigrated to the EU; 15,400 emigrated to Australia; 5,300 emigrated to Canada; and 14,400 emigrated to the ‘Rest of the World’.

Prayer for the Journey
Lord Jesus, we come to you as migrants and pilgrims, passing briefly through this world, as we journey to our true home in heave. Show us the Way.
You were once a migrant carried by Mary your mother and Joseph when you fled into Egypt. Guide us along safe paths, protect us from evil, and free us from all fear. Show us the Way.
Teach us to welcome the strangers among us – immigrants, migrants, refugees, people on the move – all sisters and brothers on the journey. Show us the Way.
Help us to seek justice for the oppressed, to bring comfort to the afflicted, and to offer hope and healing to all those we meet on the journey. Show us the Way.
Help us to recognise that the Church path is the way of justice and peace. Strengthen us to follow this path. Show us the Way.

Lord Jesus,
Who in the very first days of your earthly life were compelled together with your Mother Mary and your Father Joseph to flee you native land and seek refuge in Egypt, knowing the discomfort of emigrants.
Look kindly upon our brothers and sisters who are far from their native soil, from friends and family, and are struggling to come to terms with new life in a foreign land. Guide them on their journey, stay close to them in their loneliness and comfort the family and friends they have left behind.
We pray Lord that we may be able to embrace them once more, at home or abroad, and for those that pass from this life, we pray that we may meet once more in your heavenly kingdom. Amen.
Know Yourself
Fr. Jim Sheehy has decided to run another Myer-Briggs course as there were some people who did not get a place on the last course. The workshop, which has as its objective spiritual and personal growth through developing greater self- knowledge is known as the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator. It is a method of self-assessment and it is non-intrusive. It is based on the research and teachings of the renowned psychologist Carl Jung and is used extensively by major business and professional groups, including Church groups on staff development programmes.
It has also been used very successfully in retreats and Spiritual Direction programmes having growth in the spiritual life through greater self-knowledge and awareness as its objective.
St Teresa of Avila in her Spiritual Classic The Interior Castle states very clearly that self-knowledge is the key to spiritual growth and advises those who have embarked on the inner journey to return frequently to the “cell” of self-knowledge.
The course will be held on the 7th/8th of February; on Friday 8.00-9.30pm and Saturday 10.00am-4.00pm.
If you are interested in taking part, please email Fr. Sheehy on jimsheehy@diseart.ie or phone 086-2625498. Spaces are limited to 12 or at the most 15 participants.
(Fr. Jim Sheehy)
