Prayer For The Dead

God, thank you for the special people in our lives
whom we are remembering here today.
We thank you that you are a compassionate God
who walks with us in our dark moments
of grief and loneliness.

We are thankful for all who continue
to love and support us in our grief.
Continue to be a light for us,
giving us hope,
direction and courage.

May we now live our lives treasuring
the memories of those special people
we have known and loved
and help us to bring light
and hope to others.

We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.

Holy Souls – November Masses will be celebrated in our 3 Parish churches, Cnoc a’ Cairn and in West Kerry Community Hospital next Wednesday November 16th at 11am remembering all those named by you in our Parish November Lists.
You will find the purple coloured list in the envelope delivered to your homes recently. A triduum of Masses will be celebrated for those on the lists during November in the 3 Parish Churches:
St. Mary’s–at 7.30pm. November 15th, 16th and 17th.
Naomh Eoin Baiste –at 7.30pm. November 22nd, 23rd and 24th.

Mass for the Holy Souls’ will be celebrated in the cemetery on Cnoc a’ Cairn on Monday November 14th at 2pm.

In a world of so much social and political turmoil, people of faith will often be regarded as naïve and ineffective and irrelevant. However, we must not be afraid of scepticism and cynicism, but trust that God will give us the strength to hold our ground.
Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Do not be frightened.’ One would not be human if one didn’t feel fear when danger threatens. It’s not fear but the overcoming of fear that is the question. ‘A person without fear is no hero; the person who overcomes fear is.’
Jesus says: ‘By your endurance you will gain your souls.’
