Though we need to weep your loss,
You dwell in that safe place in our hearts,
Where no storm or night or pain can reach you.

Let us not look for you only in memory,
Where we would grow lonely without you.
You would want us to find you in presence,
Beside us when beauty brightens,
When kindness glows
And music echoes eternal tones.

May you continue to inspire us
To enter each day with a generous heart,
To serve the call of courage and love,
Until we see your beautiful face again
In that land where there is no more separation,
Where all tears will be wiped from our eyes,
And where we will never lose you again.


Feast of Christ the King
Eucharistic Adoration in the side Chapel from 5.00p.m. – 7.00p.m., this Sunday November 26th.


When we look at Jesus what do we see? There is no throne, no crown, no palace, no army. We see him walking the dusty roads of Palestine with a little band of disciples. He is surrounded by the poor and the sick, by sinners and outcasts. And yet the title ‘king’ is appropriate, and stands for something true and real in Jesus. It stands for his divinity. God is the Lord of all, the King of the universe, the One to whom all owe allegiance, the Ruler and Judge of all.

Pray for Eugene O’Connor, Gortanóra, Conor Pass Road; Seán O’Connor, Leataoibh Mór and late of Baile Uí Shé.
