Blessed are those who realise that they cannot live on bread alone but need the word of God too:
they will be fully nourished.
Blessed are those who, when they have sinned,
follow the example of the prodigal son,
and come back home to seek reconciliation:
they will cause the heaven to ring with joy.
Blessed are those who stop to attend to a wounded neighbour, pouring in the oil of compassion and the wine of hope:
they are the Good Samaritans of today.
Blessed are those who remove the plank
from their own eyes before telling their brother
to remove the splinter from his:
their efforts at reforming others bear fruit.
And blessed are those who,
having put their hand to the plough,
refuse to look back:
they will be found worthy of the Kingdom.

Stations – Invitation
Celebrating the Station Mass in the home enables us to share our faith at the table of the Eucharist inviting the Lord’s blessing on our community. Gathering after the Mass, meeting and chatting with neighbours is also an important part of the occasion. We welcome anyone who would like to host a station Mass in their home. To arrange a date, please contact the Parish Office 066-9151208.
A shepherd doesn’t wait for the lost sheep to come back; he goes looking for it. So it is with Jesus. He is the messenger sent to us by the Father. He didn’t wait for sinners to come looking for him. He went out of his way to look for them. And when he found them, he escorted them back to the Father’s house with joy.
To repent is to come back to God, and to come back to God is to come home.
Pray for Una O’Callaghan, (nee Curran), The Mall and late of Minard East who died in England; Molly Long, (nee Boland), Ashbourne, Co. Meath and late of Fán; Maurice MacDonnell, late of Green Street who died in England.
