Machnamh / Reflection
Prayer of St. Francis
Lord, make me a channel of your peace,
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Ár gCóineartú 2016
Comhghairdeachas lenár leanaí a ghlac Sacramint an Chóineartú. Buíochas ó chroí le gach éinne a bhí páirteach le hullmhú agus ceiliúradh an Chóineartú inár bparóiste. To all who were involved in the preparation and celebration of Confirmation in our Parish, we are most grateful to volunteers who helped in the cleaning and decorating of the church, and sanctuary area, altar servers, choir, sacristans, teachers in our six schools, those who helped with posters, choir and musicians, organist and choir directors, parents and sponsors, those who created floral arrangements for the paschal candle and the sanctuary, our visiting priests, Fr. Nicholas Flynn Diocesan Secretary and Bishop Ray Browne who administered the Sacrament. Mo cheol sibh.
Pastoral Ministry Course will be held in Dingle, 4 Saturdays in Autumn 2016 and 4 Saturdays in Spring 2017. If you are interested in doing this course, please contact the Presbytery on 066-9151208 as soon as possible.
Peace is not the same as tranquility. Tranquility is external. Peace is essentially internal. Peace is a state of inner calm, and designates right relations with God and with others.
Peace results when one trusts in God, and when the desire to please him is the dominant thing in one’s life. This is something which we can have even in the midst of turmoil, conflict and unresolved problems.
Jesus offers his peace to us: ‘Peace I leave with you.’
