Our Cemetery Masses – Machnamh
The Meaning of Christian Death
Indeed for your faithful, Lord,
life is changed, not ended,
and, when this earthly dwelling turns to dust,
an eternal dwelling is made ready for them in heaven.
The final article of the Creed proclaims our belief in everlasting life. At the Catholic Rite of Commendation of the Dying we sometimes hear this prayer: ‘Go forth, Christian soul, from this world … May you live in peace this day, may your home be with God in Zion, may you see your redeemer face to face’ (Prayer of Commendation of the Dying, no. 220). Death is the natural and inevitable end of life on earth. ‘[There is] a time for giving birth, a time for dying’ (Eccl (Qo) 3:2). We change, we grow old and even death seems appropriate after a full life. ‘The dust returns to the earth from which it came, and the spirit returns to God who gave it’ (Eccl (Qo) 12:7).
Every time we attend a funeral vigil or Mass, view a deceased body at a wake, or pass by a cemetery, we are reminded of this simple and profound article of the Creed, the belief in the resurrection of the body. It is a sobering belief, because it reminds us of the judgement yet to come, and at the same time it is a joyful belief that heralds life everlasting with God.
( Irish Catholic Catechism for Adults)
We pray for all who are buried in these cemeteries:
may their suffering be lessened,
may their joy be increased,
may the light of glory shine on them
and may they rest in peace.
We pray to the Lord: Response: Lord, have mercy.

Guímid orthu sin go léir a fuair bás agus iad ag súil leis an aiséirí. Tabhair áit shoilseach dóibh, a Thiarna, i do lathair féin. A Thiarna, éist linn.
(Order of Christian Funerals)

Ballintubber Abbey and Reek Sunday
I must look the part of a pilgrim because, as soon as I knock and open the door of the Sacristy, Fr. Frank Fahey says, ‘You’re going walking the tóchar.’ Or perhaps my hiking books and shorts clue him in. Anyway, he soon has me officially registered and equipped with the laminated pilgrim map. We chat about the previous day’s provincial football final victories for Tyrone in Ulster and Mayo in Connacht, then make our way through the abbey church, where he checks that I have lit a votive candle, and move along quickly to the Dancora (Bath of the Righteous), the starting point. Fr. Fahey explains the characteristics that distinguish the ‘pilgrim’ from the mere ‘tourist’. Pilgrims light a candle before setting out as a symbol of faith, much like the prayer they choose to say as they cross each stile along the way. The hardships along the way must be endured without complaint, but instead with the invocation, ‘Thanks be to God.’ If travelling in a group, cliques must be avoided by sharing the company of all the pilgrims at different stages. At designated stages, silence must be observed in prayer and pilgrims must share food, joy, love and care. Finally, what makes for a good pilgrimage is the ‘change of heart’. To illustrate this, Fr. Fahey bends down, lifts a small, rough pebble from beside the Dancora and hands it to me.
‘Take that,’ he instructs me, ‘and when you get to the top of Croagh Patrick, leave it there and take up a smooth pebble to symbolise the change of heart you have had along the tóchar. You can then keep that pebble to remind of what you have achieved.’ So, with Fr. Fahey’s blessing, I set forth from the Dancora, where pilgrims once washed their feet in a stream that flowed over specially heated stones. Legend holds that it will flow again before the end of the world. Beyond the statue of Patrick, the first stile is a modest structure adorned by the small black cross symbol that will guide my way. I am off the path of the righteous. (Tóchar – Walking Ireland’s ancient pilgrim paths. Daragh MacDonald)

Dingle Parish Directory and Patrons
To highlight the 150th Jubilee of St. Mary’s Church, Dingle Parish Pastoral Council has published a colourful Directory. All Faith-based groups and pastoral services are presented together with the lives and witness of 107 heroes and heroines of the Faith.
All seven churches and oratories are well described together with interesting facts relating to ten cemeteries across the Parish landscape. The contact details of 15 Parish committees and 8 local schools are comprehensively outlined. The generous everyday Parish service of more than 500 volunteer parishioners is hailed in Treoraí 7 Laochra an Chreidimh / Dingle Parish Directory and Patrons in celebration of St. Mary’s 150 Fé Bhlath.
The Directory, featuring 100 coloured illustrations is now available for sale in the Parish Churches and from the Parish Office as well as in the following outlets in the Parish for €5. It makes for a beautiful gift.
