Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that you are
present in the Most Holy
Sacrament. I love you above
all things, and I desire to
receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into
my heart. I embrace You as if
You were already there and
unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated
from You. Amen.

Prayer of St Teresa of Avila
Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things are passing away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things
Whoever has God lacks nothing;
God alone suffices. Amen

A Prayer for Sustainability
As we breathe the very air which sustains us,
We remember your love, God which compels us.
Fill us with the spirit to seek understanding.
Empty us of apathy, selfishness and fear.
Fill us with compassion and generosity.
Empty us of all pessimism and hesitation.
Breathe into us solidarity with all who suffer
beneath the crossroads of pollution and poverty. Breathe us into action building your sustainable kingdom. (Source: Reflections collated by Anne M. Holton)

Thought for the day: The relationship between religious faith and public life is perplexing. In some societies, even today, there is virtually no difference between the two. In other, more secular societies, any expression of religious conviction is unacceptable in public. It is true of course that there is an appropriate distinction and even separation to be made, as indeed Jesus does make today in the Gospel. But on at least two issues, there is bound to be some crossover. Religious faith informs our values and in society today policies and laws must be grounded, not in a particular faith certainly, but in values nevertheless.
Prayer: Lord, we need your wisdom to tell what belongs to God and what belongs to Caesar. Send your Holy Spirit into the heart of all believers that we may be true to ourselves and tolerant towards people with whom we disagree.

The Rosary will take place every evening for the month of October, at 7.00pm, from St Mary’s Church via webcam.

Covid-19 – Level 3
Implications for Parishes
On midnight October 6th, the country moved to Level 3 restrictions for a period of 3 weeks. The impact on Parish activity and religious services is as follows:-

1. No Public Masses, masses on line only.

  1. Churches may remain open for private worship.
  2. In the case of funerals, a private funeral will take place due to Government advice regarding public gatherings. A maximum
    of 25 people may attend a funeral.
  3. Weddings may take place but no more
    than 25 people may attend.
  4. Baptisms are not permitted.
    Parish Offices will remain open but subject to strict compliance with all social distancing and hand sanitisation requirements. Face coverings must be worn by anyone visiting the Parish Office.

Mass Leaflets are available in the local shops in Dingle, Fionn Trá and Lios Póil, on our Parish Website and at the back of our 3 churches. Please drop one to the housebound.

Offertory Collection: €745. Míle Buíochas.

Feast of St John Paul II – October 22nd
O God, who are rich in mercy
and who willed that the Saint John Paul the Second should preside as Pope over your universal Church, grant, we pray,
that instructed by his teaching,
we may open our hearts to the
saving grace of Christ,
the sole Redeemer of mankind.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
