Thought for the day: Jesus had the gift of saying things directly and plainly, with a power to penetrate all our defences and lead us to a new awareness. Today’s message puts before us the paradox of the Gospel: we gain life by letting go of it. If I put my happiness, my being loved, at the centre of my life, then I will surely fail, even though to be loved and to be happy are really important. If on the other hand I put the happiness of others first and love them unconditionally, then I too will know unselfish love and deep happiness. This is the very insight and wisdom that Jesus puts before us as the key not just to love but to life and within that, the key to authentic discipleship precisely as a way of life. Prayer: Teach us, Lord, that nothing is more life-giving than to love and be loved in return. (www.tarsus.ie)

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.

We wish all our young people who are beginning a new year in school every success in the year ahead. Congratulations to all who received their Leaving Cert results and wishing you all God’s Blessing as you begin a new chapter of your life.

The Season of Creation is marked in the Christian world from Sept 1st to 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). 

Pilgrimage to San Giovanni, Oct 25th – Nov 1st, 2023, Fr Gerard O’Leary, is the Spiritual Director. Pilgrimage to the Holy Land, Nov 7th to 15th led by Fr Joe Begley. Contact Michael 085-1309835.
