Lord, look upon us and take pity on us,
For at times we too are like sheep.
Save us from a blind following of the herd.
Help us to listen to your voice,
to trust you and to follow you,
even if it means leaving the crowd
and walking a lonely path.
Lead us from fear to trust,
from error to truth,
From hate to love, from war to peace,
From despair to hope,
and from death to life. Amen.

Festival of Families
Each parish will receive 10 tickets for the Festival of Families in Croke Park on Saturday evening 25th August. Should you and your family like to participate, please leave your name and contact details with the parish secretary asap. This is a free event. Ticket holders are responsible for their own transport arrangements. Photo ID will need to match the name on the ticket.
Jesus was no detached healer. He showed care and compassion for those who suffered. And he wasn’t afraid to let the sufferers know that he cared about them. There is a fine example of this in today’s Gospel. On stepping ashore, he was met by a large crowd. But he didn’t see them as a crowd with problems and worries. He had compassion on them, precisely because they were wounded and in need.
Pray for Tom Griffin, Doonties; Josie Gillespie, (Nee McKenna), Auckland, New Zealand and late of Lisdorgan; Beattie Uí Chéilleachair, Ballinana.
