I rise today
with God’s strength to direct me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eyes to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak to me,
God’s hand to uphold me,
God’s pathway before me,
God’s shield to protect me,
God’s host to save me –
from one man or many
that seek to destroy me. Amen.
Corpus Christi – Focal Buíochas
Buíochas to all who were involved in the preparation and participation in our Corpus Christi Procession last Sunday. We would like to thank our Stewards, Altar Servers, Liturgy Group, St. Mary’s Choir and those who led the prayers, An Garda Síochána, First Communion and Confirmation Children, those who decorated the route with buntings /altars, Cross and Canopy Bearers, those who carried flags and banners, Nigel Collins and Peter Regan and all at the Marine. Finally, thanks to Peter and those who supplied the bus and sound system.
Ballintaggart Killeen Mass
Mass will be celebrated at the Killeen in Ballintaggart at 8pm on Thursday June 29th. Entrance from the Doonshean/Beenbawn road on the Eastern side of the Racecourse. Parking will be available in a nearby field. Fáilte roimh cách.
Every place needs Christian witnesses. Christ says, ‘Witness to me before men’. It’s in the world we have to stand up and be counted. It’s not good enough to be secret disciples of Christ. We have to give public witness to our Christian faith.
What we are likely to face is not so much hostility or opposition, but something which is even harder – a deadly indifference. To witness in this case requires a special kind of courage. It means overcoming our fear of what people will think of us or say about us, and the fear of what it will cost us in terms of letting go of our ego.
Pray for Paddy O’Sullivan, Tubber. Suaimhneas síoraí dá anam.
