Patrún na Mináirde

The Minard Pattern Day Mass will be celebrated at 7.30pm this Monday evening, 29th August at Tobar Eoin Baiste, near Minard Castle.

The Patron of Minard and of the church in Lios Póil is St John the Baptist and the feastday celebrated at the Pattern is that of the Beheading of St John the Baptist.  The importance of St John the Baptist in the history of our salvation can be seen from the fact that he has two feast days on the Church calendar – we celebrate his birth on June 24th and his martyrdom on August 29th.

St John the Baptist was a cousin of Christ and as the last of the prophets of the Old Covenant had as his mission to prepare the way of the Lord  He predicted and announced Christ’s coming by preaching a baptism of repentance.  Under protest, he baptised Christ in the river Jordan and told his followers, Behold the Lamb of God.  Knowing that his mission came to an end with the coming of Jesus, he said He must increase, I must decrease.  He fell foul of King Herod Antipas by criticising the King for marrying his brother’s wife, and had him put to death at the prompting of his wife Herodias and his step-daughter Salome.

During the Middle Ages, St John the Baptist was especially celebrated as the model of the ascetic or the monk, due to the biblical account of his time spent praying and fasting in the desert.  We can also see in him a model of humility, of courage and of prophetic witness in the face of hostility.

A Dhia, ba é do thoil go mbeadh Eoin Baiste ina réamhtheachtaire ar shaolú agus ar bhás do Mhic.  Fuair sé bás ina mhairtíreach de chúis na fírinne agus an chirt. Tabhair dúinne go saothróimid go dian ag fógairt do theagaisc.  Sin é ár nguí chugat trí Chríost ár dTiarna, Amen.

Please note – no evening Mass in St Mary’s this Monday evening due to Patrún na Mináirde.  Mass will be celebrated at 10am in St Mary’s on Monday.

Chríost ina Pháis

Molaimid Íosa Chríost, molaimid Dia de shíor is de ghnáth.  Ó a Thiarna go mola tú sinn is go ngabha tú sinn i d’lámhaibh, mar níl toradh le maíomh againn ach toradh an Rí d’fhulaing an Pháis.

World Youth Day Madrid 2011 –

15th to 21st August

Perhaps the most eloquent ‘sermon’ of the World Youth Day in Madrid was the enthusiasm and joy of the over 1.5 million young people who gathered at the Cuatro Ventos airport for the Prayer Vigil and Mass with Pope Benedict last weekend.  Despite an unseasonable rain storm, the crowd joyfully welcomed the Pope who told them, “Thank you for your joy and endurance. Your strength is greater than the rain.”

The prayer vigil and Mass were just part of the week’s activities with prayer, catechesis, music and the chance to meet Catholics from all over the world on the agenda for the pilgrims who attended.

The Holy Father’s visit to Spain also involved smaller meetings with young women religious, young university professors, seminarians and disabled young people.

The Pope’s message to the young was challenging and encouraging.  Speaking to the youth gathered for the Stations of the Cross, he told them:

Dear young friends, may Christ’s love for us increase your joy and encourage you to go in search of those less fortunate. You are open to the idea of sharing your lives with others, so be sure not to pass by on the other side in the face of human suffering, for it is here that God expects you to give of your very best: your capacity for love and compassion. The different forms of suffering that have unfolded before our eyes in the course of this Way of the Cross are the Lord’s way of summoning us to spend our lives following in his footsteps and becoming signs of his consolation and salvation. “To suffer with the other and for others; to suffer for the sake of truth and justice; to suffer out of love and in order to become a person who truly loves — these are fundamental elements of humanity, and to abandon them would destroy man himself”

For his homily last Sunday, the Pope took the theme of faith – the Gospel was that of St Peter’s profession of Christ’s divine Sonship.  The words he addressed to the pilgrims apply to us all:

Having faith means drawing support from the faith of your brothers and sisters, even as your own faith serves as a support for the faith of others. I ask you, dear friends, to love the Church which brought you to birth in the faith, which helped you to grow in the knowledge of Christ and which led you to discover the beauty of his love. Growing in friendship with Christ necessarily means recognizing the importance of joyful participation in the life of your parishes, communities and movements, as well as the celebration of Sunday Mass, frequent reception of the sacrament of Reconciliation, and the cultivation of personal prayer and meditation on God’s word.

Friendship with Jesus will also lead you to bear witness to the faith wherever you are, even when it meets with rejection or indifference. We cannot encounter Christ and not want to make him known to others. So do not keep Christ to yourselves! Share with others the joy of your faith. The world needs the witness of your faith, it surely needs God. I think that the presence here of so many young people, coming from all over the world, is a wonderful proof of the fruitfulness of Christ’s command to the Church: “Go into all the world and proclaim the Gospel to the whole creation” (Mk 16:15). You too have been given the extraordinary task of being disciples and missionaries of Christ in other lands and countries filled with young people who are looking for something greater and, because their heart tells them that more authentic values do exist, they do not let themselves be seduced by the empty promises of a lifestyle which has no room for God.
