Christmas Crib Appeal 2023 – proceeds from the Crib appeal in the 3 parish churches will go to Trócaire for its humanitarian work in the Middle East with its partners on the ground. Received to date €3,236.

Thought for the day: How often do we meet people whose words and deeds match? Sometimes at least, but it may be rare enough. In the old expression, when all is said and done, more is said than done. Jesus is a teacher with authority, not the authority of position or force but power from within. This is suggested by the Greek word for authority exousia, from within (my) being. Even today, there are religious leaders who speak from within, whose word is genuine, whose deeds match what they say. These are the ones we listen to; these are the ones we would love to be like. Prayer: Loving God, you love us wholly and your desire is that we become both whole and holy. Help us to take the Good News to heart. May we become fully mature in Christ, so that ourinner and outer selves are one. Amen

Pope Francis on X: Let us pray together for Christian unity. May we never tire of invoking the Lord for peace in Ukraine, Israel and Palestine, and in many other parts of the world. It is always the weakest who suffer when peace is lacking.
