Machnamh / Reflection
We invite you to pray the official prayer for World Youth Day 2019 for the intentions of all those who will participate in Panama or here at home:
You call us to live our lives as a way of salvation.
Help us to recall the past with gratitude,
to embrace the present with courage and
to build the future with hope.
Lord Jesus, our friend and brother,
thank you for looking upon us with love.
Let us listen to your voice
as it resonates in the hearts of each one
with the strength and light of the Holy Spirit.
Grant us the grace of being a Church
that goes forth with vibrant faith
and a youthful face to communicate the joy of the Gospel.
May we help to build up the kind of society we long for,
one where there is fairness and fellowship.
We pray for the Pope and the bishops;
for young people;
for all those who will take part in World Youth Day in Panama
and for those who are preparing to welcome them.
Our Lady of Antigua, Patroness of Panama,
help us to pray and live with generosity like yours:
“I am the servant of the Lord.
May it be done to me according to your word” (Lk 1:38). Amen

We are very grateful to Fr. Anthony O’Sullivan who ministered in our parish. We wish him every success as he takes up his appointment in Rathmore Parish covering for Fr. Pat O’Donnell who has begun his Sabbatical leave. Gach dea-ghuí.
What Jesus did at Cana was not a once-off thing. It pointed to what would happen all through his ministry. The changing of water into wine is a symbol for what he was about. Everywhere he went the old was made new. His presence could change beyond recognition the lives of those with whom he came into contact. And he continues to do this for those who believe in him and follow him. He transforms our lives into something wonderful. He offers us something that we pine for but can’t achieve on our own. He offers us a share in the divine life.
Pray for Eamonn Fitzmaurice, Ballyclogher, Lixnaw.
