Stranger at Our Side
All through life’s day,
you walk with us, Lord.
But often we don’t recognize you,
for we are blinded by work and worry,
doubt, confusion and fear,
and so you remain a stranger to us.

Before the day’s end we will ask many questions, experience many sorrows and disappointments.
And then, suddenly,
whether we are young, middle-aged, or old, we will find that night is falling.

In that moment we pray
that like the disciples on the road to Emmaus,
our eyes will be opened,
and that we will recognise you.

And you will not vanish from our sight,
but stay with us
to guide us to the Father’s house.

A Coronavirus Prayer
Loving and healing God,
we, the people of Dingle, Fionn Trá, Lios Póíl, Annascaul, Ballyferriter, Castlegregory 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.

Implications for Parishes
The impact on Parish activity and religious services is as follows:-

  1. No Public Masses, masses on line only.
  2. Churches remain open for private prayer.
  3. A maximum of 25 may attend a funeral.
  4. Weddings may take place but no more
    than 25 people may attend.
  5. Baptisms are not permitted.
    Parish Offices will remain open but subject to strict compliance with all social distancing and hand sanitisation requirements. Face coverings must be worn by anyone visiting the Parish Office.

Thought for the day: To engage with today’s readings, it might be helpful to go back in your own mind to someone in your life whom you regard as really wise. When did you become aware of it? Have you benefitted from it? If someone were to ask how would you recognise wisdom and what are its marks, what would you say? Have you learned from your encounters with wise people? Do you desire wisdom for yourself? Perhaps as parent or friend or family member or colleague. Do you nourish your hunger for the qualities and attitudes which we associate with people who have learned from life? Prayer: All-wise and loving God, the desire for you lies deep within us. Awaken us to the quest for true wisdom that by being true to ourselves we may come home to you, the source of all wisdom. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
