Thought for the day: Our Gospel reading today has some harsh dimensions and most likely it reflects not the teaching of Jesus directly but the practices in the church for which Matthew was writing. People who refuse to acknowledge their failures are to be treated as pagans and tax collectors! But just how are pagans and tax collectors treated by Jesus and in the Gospel of Matthew? They are welcomed and forgiven! Any permanent exclusion is to be resisted on the example and teaching of Jesus himself. Prayer: We believe your word to us that where two or three are gathered in your name you are in our midst. Help us to recognise you in all our brothers and sisters, whatever their failures or sins. Help us to recognise you in ourselves, whatever our faults.(www.tarsus.ie)

Tap to Donate terminals are located at the back of St Mary’s Church. Machines are programmed to donate €5 to the Parish each time they are used.

Pope’s Intention for September: We pray for those persons living on the margins of society, in inhumane life conditions: may they not be overlooked by institutions and never considered of lesser importance.

The Season of Creation continues until Oct 4th. This Season is an opportunity to respond to the call of Pope Francis to listen to the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor. As the ecological crisis worsens creation cries out as forests burn, animals flee, lives are lost and people are forced to migrate. The theme for this year’s Season is “Let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!” (Amos 5: 24). As we join the river of justice and peace then hope is created instead of despair, “for we know that things can change!” (Laudato Si’, 13). 

Prayer of Blessed John Henry Newman:

O Lord, support us all the day long, until the shadows lengthen, the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then, Lord, in thy mercy, grant us a safe lodging, a holy rest, and peace at the last.
