Baskets for the Offertory Collection are now being used. Míle buíochas to all those who have volunteered.

Thought for the day: What does it mean to be saved? We have the secular sense of being rescued or spared somehow. The root meaning of the word in Greek and Latin is to be healed. So, the beginning is some recognition of need, of something fractured, unwell in my life. It includes faith in God who wants us to be both whole and holy, fully alive. The big “sickness” is death itself, from which we are saved/healed through God’s love for us in the lifting up of Jesus in death into resurrection. Prayer: Heavenly physician, heal whatever in us is dead or wounded or unfree that we may know the wholeness, freedom, life and joy of the Gospel.

Pope Francis on X: We are invited during Lent to stop for a moment. We should pause in prayer, in order to welcome the Word of God, and to pause like the Good Samaritan in the presence of a wounded brother or sister. Love of God and love of neighbour are a single love.

Pope’s Intention for March: For the New Martyrs: We pray that those who risk their lives for the Gospel in various parts of the world inflame the Church with their courage and missionary enthusiasm.

Offertory Collection: €1,769.00.

Diocesan Collection in aid of Emigrant Services will be taken up next weekend March 16th/17th, as a second collection after Communion.
