Thought for the day “The greatest things you’ll ever learn is to love and be loved in return.” The following words, attributed to Pedro Arrupe SJ, may up lift and inspire. “Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love, in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evening, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love and it will decide everything.” Prayer: Jesus, you love the human race: let your love of us strike so deep a chord within us that our lives may resound to the music of that grace, drawing others to the leap of faith and the dance of joy.

Pope Francis Tweet: In this month of May, let us pray the Rosary, asking the Blessed Virgin for the gift of peace, especially for beleaguered Ukraine. May the leaders of nations listen to the desire of the suffering people who want peace.

Diocesan Prayer for Vocations

Blessed Trinity, Father, Son and Spirit,

we worship and praise You.

Father, through the Holy Spirit you give

to every Christian a unique calling as you provide and care for the needs of your people.

Hear our prayers for our needs as parish communities. Bless our efforts to strengthen lay ministry. In our diocese and in all our parishes give to each person the grace

to discern, follow and live their calling.

Call forth from among us vocations to the diocesan priesthood. Fill the hearts of our priests and deacons with renewed Peace and Joy. Father, in all things ‘Thy will be done’.

We entrust our prayers to you through Christ our Lord. Amen

Message from Bishop Ray – The Feast of St Brendan falls this Tuesday 16th May.On the feast Day we encourage people to privately visit a local Grotto to Our Lady, or a local Holy Well / Mass Rock, and pray for vocations to the priesthood and synodality.  Pray also for the ‘courage of St Brendan’ for students coping with the tension of upcoming exams at both second and third level. Pause for a moment before any stained-glass window, statue or icon to St Brendan in the church. Notice the detail. St Brendan’s commitment to go forth to share the Good News of the Gospel and his courage in facing the dangerous unknown of the ocean is a model of Christian mission. St Brendan believed his future was in good hands, – the hands of God. St Brendan navigated the seas, we tend the home shores.
