Lord, make me an instrument of your love. Where the darkness of loneliness reigns
let me bring the light of friendship.
Where the darkness of bitterness reigns
let me bring the light of forgiveness.
Where the darkness of hurt reigns
let me bring the light of healing.
Where the darkness of discord reigns
let me bring the light of harmony.
Where the darkness of sadness reigns
let me bring the light of joy.
Where the darkness of doubt reigns
let me bring the light of faith.
Where the darkness of despair reigns
let me bring the light of hope.
And where the darkness of hatred reigns
let me bring the light of love. Amen
(Flor McCarthy SDB)

Ar an namhaid cosain sinn,

Ar uair ár mbáis, glaoigh orainn.

Pope’s Intentions for February: The Pope asks us to pray ‘For parishes’. We pray that parishes, placing communion at the centre, may increasingly become communities of faith, fraternity and welcome towards those most in need.

Pope Francis Tweet: To be Christians under the sign of the cross spurs all believers in Christ to cultivate communion at every level, in the name of the God who embraces all with his mercy.
