Thought for the day: Every so often, we catch a glimpse of the “something more” that God has in store for us. These fleeting experiences are to be treasured: the birth of a first child, falling in love, a sense of “being held” by God’s presence. Such experiences may help us approach the Transfiguration. Like all transcendent experiences, it is fleeting and yet it etches a memory and leaves a longing. What should we do? Practice listening to him. Be not afraid. We cannot always be “on the mountain” and yet what happens on the heights can help us on the lowlands of the everyday. Prayer: Lord, listening sounds so easy and yet is such hard work! Guide us as we listen to your Son, whose word is alive, who is himself the way, the truth and the life.

Pope Francis Tweet: Let us pray together for the victims of the shipwreck, off the Calabrian coast, including many children, and for the other surviving migrants. I thank those who have brought relief and are providing shelter.

Offertory Collection: €1,966.00.

Machnamh don gCarghas: D’iarr Íosa tráth ar a dheisceabail faire a dhéanamh in aonacht leis. Tá a leithéid de chuireadh againn anois don gCarghas, machnamh a dheanamh ar ár gcreideamh i gCríost agus san eaglais, agus bheith aontaithe le Críost sa chreideamh sin le staonadh de shaghas éigin, lena mheabhrú dúinn féin nach dtagann beatha nó borradh san eaglais gan urnaí agus troscadh de shaghas éigin. Ag smaoineamh ar a ndúirt Íosa le Peadar: Bíodh smaointe Dé againn seachas smaointe daoine.
