Machnamh: Seeds of consolation

What can I say to you, my friend, in your hour of grief? Just a word from my heart.
In the midst of your sorrow seeds are being sown – seeds of consolation, hope, resignation, and even gratitude.
This winter will pass, and spring will again visit the garden of your heart.
You will see these seeds grow,
blossom, and bear fruit.
Then your sorrow will turn into joy,
a joy no one will be able to take from you.

Annual Diocese of Kerry Pilgrimage to Knock will take place on Saturday 26th August 2023. While many families will travel by car it is hoped that many buses will travel and that each pastoral area will coordinate parishes locally.
Hopefully, many parishes who already make an annual pilgrimage will decide to move to this date and thus join with the diocese.

Prayer of Blessed John Henry Newman
O Lord, support us all the day long, until the shadows lengthen, and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then, Lord, in thy mercy, grant us a safe lodging, a holy rest, and peace at the last.

Lent: Pray, Fast, Give
