A Coronavirus Prayer
Loving and healing God,
we, the people of Dingle, Fionn Trá and
Lios Póíl turn to you in prayer,
confident that you are with us and with all people in every moment.

We stand before you as people of hope, trusting in your care and protection.
May your faithful love support us and soothe the anxiety of our hearts.

Generous God,
fill us with compassion and concern for others, young and old, that we may look after one another in these challenging days.

Bring healing to those who are sick with the virus and be with their families. May those who have died rest in your eternal embrace.
Comfort their family and friends.

Strengthen and protect all medical professionals caring for the sick and all who work in our medical facilities. Give wisdom to leaders in healthcare and governance
that they may make the right decisions for the well-being of people.

We pray in gratitude for all those in our country who will continue to work in the days ahead in so many fields of life for the sake of us all.
Bless them and keep them safe.

O God of creation and life,
we place ourselves in your protection.
May the mantle of your peace enfold us this day and tomorrow.

St ……., pray for us.
St ……., pray for us.
St ……., pray for us.

May all the saints of God, pray for us. Amen.

Mass Leaflets are available in the local shops in Dingle, Fionn Trá and Lios Póil and on our Parish Website. Please drop one to a neighbour or anyone cocooning.

Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that you are
present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to
receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into
my heart. I embrace You as if
You were already there and
unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated
from You. Amen.

Stay with me, Lord – Prayer of St Pio of Pietrelcina after Holy Communion

Stay with me, Lord, for it is necessary to have
You present so that I do not forget You.
You know how easily I abandon You.

Stay with me, Lord, because I am weak
and I need Your strength,
that I may not fall so often.

Stay with me, Lord, for You are my life,
and without You, I am without fervor.

Stay with me, Lord, for You are my light,
and without You, I am in darkness.

Stay with me, Lord, to show me Your will.
Stay with me, Lord, so that I hear Your voice and follow You.

Stay with me, Lord, for I desire to love You
very much, and always be in Your company.

Stay with me, Lord, if You wish me to be faithful to You.

Stay with me, Lord, for as poor as my soul is, I want it to be a place of consolation for You, a nest of love.

Trócaire and Dues Envelopes 2020
Míle buíochas to all who have returned their Dues Envelopes and Trócaire Boxes.
Trócaire Amount received to date: €2,173.
Parish Churches reopen: You are asked to please continue to observe all Health guidelines and to use the hand sanitizers provided. St Mary’s Church, only, will open from 10.30am to 6pm each day, except Sunday, when it will open after Mass.
If you ask what is the safest way to visit a church, one answer is: “Walk around, stand and pray; don’t sit down, touch nothing.”

Rosary: You are welcome to join us each evening for the rosary at 7pm on webcam during, May, from St. Mary’s Church. Rosary sheets are available on the website.

Thought for the day: We could ask how is the Risen Lord with us? The New Testament and the church tradition offer a rich array of “presences.” Christ is present in the neighbour in need, in created reality beautiful and awe-inspiring, whenever the disciples gather, in the word proclaimed, in the sacrament celebrated and through the Holy Spirit. Perhaps we do not always feel this presence, but the words of Jesus are a guarantee that no matter what is going on in my life or my community or my church, he is with us, our Emmanuel.
Prayer: Emmanuel – God with us – we thank you that you are indeed always with us. Help us to find you and recognise where you truly are and not just where we want you to be.
Fr Kieran O Mahony OSA

Safety Circle me O Lord,
keep peace within and fear without.
keep trust within and doubt without.
keep light within and darkness without.
keep forgiveness within and hate without.
