Thought for the day: According to the song, “the greatest thing you’ll ever learn is to love and be loved in return.” In our better moments, we all know this to be the truth about our human being. For believers, it is no surprise that the very thing we need most stands at the centre of the Christian faith: God is love. The match between our need and God’s disclosure is perfect. If we took that really to heart, many things would change: our practice of prayer, our relationships, our joy in believing, our way of sharing our faith, our living of discipleship. All we need is love. The astonishing servant love of God in Jesus is exactly what we most need. Prayer: You are love itself and yet we hesitate. Open our inner selves to your gracious loving, that we may see ourselves as beloved and being loved, we may learn to love in return. Amen.

Pope Francis – Tweet: We should not fear the crises of life and faith. Crises help us recognize that we need God and thus allow us to return to the Lord, to experience his love anew.

The Feast Day of St Brendan falls on May 16th and our traditions of St Brendan (484-577) is a wonderful heritage reaching back fifteen centuries. His passion was to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with everyone. Let us be mindful of those who recently received the Sacrament of Confirmation; those youths in education and our young adults moving from education into the world of work. All young people need a share of the Christian hope and courage of St Brendan. God bless all young people throughout the diocese. May the example of St Brendan inspire them as they progress step by step towards adulthood. +Bishop Ray Browne
Prayer of St Brendan the Navigator
Help me to journey beyond the familiar
and into the unknown.
Give me the faith to leave old ways
and break fresh ground with You.
Christ of the mysteries, I trust in you
to be stronger than each storm within me.
I will trust in the darkness and know
that my times, even now, are in Your hand.
Tune my spirit to the music of heaven,
and somehow, make my obedience count for You. Amen.
