Thought for the day: “The world needs forgiveness; too many people are caught up in resentment and harbour hatred because they are incapable of forgiving. They ruin their own lives and the lives of those around them rather than finding the joy of serenity and peace.” (Pope Francis in Assisi in 2016) His point is that those who do not forgive, who hold on to resentment, hurt themselves almost as much, even if they are unaware of it for a while. Prayer: God, always ready to forgive, we thank you for your forgiving love. Give us the grace to show the same love and forgiveness to all. Amen (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 Francis on X:  Let us pray together in the face of the many challenges and difficulties of our age. We should not remain idle spectators. Rather, may we actively engage for a more just and peaceful world.

Message from Bishop Ray: Sept 11th

Our diocesan Pilgrimages to Knock and Lourdes:Sincere thanks to all involved in the local organizing and staging of our pilgrimages. Thanks to deacon Pat Coffey, our diocesan director of the Knock pilgrimage. People enjoyed Knock very much. Saturday seems the right day for Knock, good too that it enabled a good number of priests to be present. The bus trip was enjoyable and relaxing with the good road from Adare. Next year’s date is likely to be August 24th.

150 people travelled to Lourdes. Next year we hope to once more bring ‘assisted pilgrims’ (40 to 50 usually). This will require re-assembling the team to assist them (a doctor, nurses, other support staff, youth from secondary schools). New team members will be welcome, and also parishes can help identify those who would benefit from travelling as ‘assisted pilgrims’.

Finally, in wonderful sunshine the annual Mass at ‘Our Lady’s Well’ Ballyheigue was a joyful spiritual occasion. Amazing to see as many as 2,000 reverently participate in the Mass. Many other parishes have strong traditions of Holy Wells. It is good to promote prayer at these Holy Wells – especially where there is a tradition of people visiting the wells regularly and also on a set popular annual Pattern Day.             + Ray
