Thought for the day: One of the encouraging signs in today’s church is the growing popularity of lectio divina, praying the Scriptures. This is best done with other people because it is so enriching as we benefit from the observations and questions of fellow pilgrims. It comes alive when I can say “today, this scripture has been fulfilled in my hearing.” Prayer: Lord, inspire me to read your Scriptures and to meditate upon them day and night. I beg you to give me real understanding of what I need, that I in turn may put its precepts into practice. Yet, I know that understanding and good intentions are worthless, unless rooted in your graceful love. So I ask that the words of Scripture may also be not just signs on a page, but channels of grace into my heart. Amen. (Origen, 184-253 AD)

Synodal Pathway – Our time to reflect, discuss and listen: As part of our Diocese’s participation in the 2023 Synod of Bishops, we will be offering opportunities for discussion and listening in the Spring.

Before that happens, you are invited to visit to learn more about the questions that Pope Francis is asking us to reflect on.  

Pope Francis – Tweet: Like the Magi who came from the East to Bethlehem to honour the Messianic King, we Christians are also pilgrims on the way toward full unity, in the diversity of our confessions and traditions. Let us #PrayTogether and keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, our only Lord.

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity continues until January 25th.  The theme chosen for this year is ‘We Saw His Star in the East’. 

Sunday, January 23rd, marks the beginning of Catholic Schools Week 2022. During this week, we aim to celebrate the unique contribution that Catholic schools, both primary and post-primary, make to supporting each other and living out Jesus’ message of the Gospel. This year’s theme is ‘Catholic Schools: Living Life to the Full’.

Caring for the Environment: As part of the Diocesan Mission this week Fr Sean McDonagh spoke to us of the importance of caring for the environment. There are many ways to approach the issue: Practically, Spiritually, Community and Globally. Some practical ways we can care include the following: 1. Remember to bring your own shopping bags. So you don’t forget leave some in the hall, the car, your handbag, at work etc 2. Stop buying cling film and sandwich/freezer bags. If possible, put things in a reusable container. As a last resort use tinfoil. Tinfoil can be recycled over and over again. 3. Stop using hand wash that comes in plastic containers and use a bar of soap instead. There are antibacterial soap bars available too. (Soap bars last for ages and are much less expensive.)
