Today we mark the 1400th anniversary of the death of St Columbanus - Patron Saint of Europe. He is also patron saint of motorcyclists. Born in Leinster in 543 he came to Cleenish Island on Lough Erne to be educated. He went then to Bangor Abbey and at the age of 40 went to Europe with 12 monks. He was well received in France and Italy and founded many monasteries there. He loved to be in the forests and caves and as he walked through the woods, birds and squirrels would ride on his shoulders. When he knew his time was near, he went alone into a cave and remained there till his death in 615. After his death both the Irish and the Italians were devoted to this great missionary.
Reflection: Life can be complicated and difficult, and it can weigh us down at times. We can end up thinking, feeling, and even acting as if we are alone on our journey. Today’s Gospel reminds us that we are not alone. Even when God seems to be sleeping, and the storm is rising, and we are in danger of being swamped, he is there. At a simple request from the disciples in the boat, Jesus quietens the wind and allays their fears. All is calm again – all it takes is a little faith and trust that we are not alone.

Holy Trinity: St Patrick explained the doctrine of the Holy Trinity to his flock in Ireland by using the three leaves of the shamrock. Each leaf represented one of the three persons and yet it was still only one shamrock. So for example where Jesus is present, the Father and the Holy Spirit are also present because they are one.
Healthy Doubt: Today we celebrate Trinity Sunday. We hear in the Gospel today that some of those gathered doubted even in the presence of the Risen Lord. We may be shocked that the disciples could doubt, even in Jesus’s presence. But it should also console us. Doubt can sometimes help us in our faith; it keeps our mind open. A little bit of hesitation can be a good thing. It’s like a safety valve that stops a boiler from overheating. That some of the disciples were hesitant gives us all hope. The problem with the hesitation in our modern world is that there is a fear of proclaiming any message at all. The truth gets strangled in order not to offend. It is the age of the intolerant tolerant.

Shalom: Today’s Gospel shows us that even in those difficult times, there is always hope. Jesus came and stood amongst the disciples even though the doors were firmly closed. The peace that he gives them (Shalom) has a much more significant meaning than we first think. It is not simply a good wish. The peace that Jesus offers is a peace that this world cannot offer. It is a peace that comes from a loving relationship with God; a peace of body, of mind and of spirit.
CALM: Lord there are times when I am unduly anxious, worried and fearful. Calm the storm in my heart and help me trust in your gracious care. Amen.

In 2005, there was panic on the Dublin to Galway train. A pet shop owner was transporting a snake when, unknown to him, it escaped from its cage and slithered down the carriage. People started screaming, and some jumped up on the tables (where’s St Patrick when you need him?!). Eventually calm was restored. Flight or fight? The Christian, if they believed in today’s Gospel, would choose fight. The allusion to drinking poison should come with a caveat obviously in the literal sense (don’t try this at home3!), but is there poison within our lives we need to drive out? Where can we confront demons? Who needs healing? The darkness is real. Satan is real. We have a mission.
Today our Lord Jesus Christ ascended into heaven; let our hearts ascend with him… For just as he remained with us even after his ascension, so we too are already in heaven with him, even though what is promised us has not yet been fulfilled in our bodies.

Complete Package: We talk about the complete package. Other colloquialisms we are familiar with are the whole nine 3 years, the whole kit and caboodle. A high form of praise is to say someone is ‘the real deal’. Utility companies advertise ‘bundles’, a group of services you can avail of for one agreed price. A question to pose to ourselves is ‘what is the complete package, the “bundle” Jesus offers me?’ The commandments are ‘the real deal’, and by following them we will be liberated in love not enslaved in fear. That’s joy you can’t buy online! It’s a lot more than a paltry nine yards! It’s infinite.

Forgiveness: Forgiveness is a process. Every saint has a past and every sinner a future. Who can you offer your forgiveness to today? There is nothing worse than a Christian who makes all the right noises and then stabs someone in the back. Then there is the one who exhausts themselves with fervour at church in the morning and walks by the homeless beggar in the afternoon. Today is a day to thank people like Barnabas in our lives. These are the people who looked over our broken fence to admire the flowers in our garden, the ones who pleaded our case when all seemed futile and lost. Maybe there’s someone you know with a troubled past who has made a huge effort to rehabilitate themselves and is just not being accepted or forgiven. You can give them a beautiful gift today.
Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin. Mother Teresa

Rest in God: Today we hear a story of the disciples encountering the risen Jesus. They are not immediately at ease; they are alarmed as they think they are seeing a ghost. But as soon as they are convinced it really is Jesus, they are filled with joy, and they settle down to eat with him. They are back in the company of their beloved friend and teacher. The disciples who met Jesus on the road to Emmaus had a similar experience – they immediately felt comfortable in Jesus’ company, even when they thought he was no more than a learned stranger, and invited him to dine and to stay with them. Our relationship with Jesus should be one of ease and trust. But we need to spend time with him to reach that level of closeness. ‘I will lie down in peace and sleep comes at once, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.’

Reflection: We must cast our thoughts back to Palm Sunday to recall the initial feelings of hope and expectation as the disciples followed Christ through the streets of Jerusalem. Chaos would soon enter their world as they witness the trial of their Saviour and nothing could prepare them for the brutality of Christ’s death. Their world had been torn apart. This Gospel from John is the dawn of a new creation. It is resurrection day, the first day of the week and Christ appears in the midst of the disciples. The disciples have experienced the darkest of times and yet, the presence of Christ represents the light of a new creation.

The Empty Tomb Simply put, Easter Faith is the “empty tomb”. For some this tomb is just an empty cave and there are thousands of rational reasons why the body of Jesus is no longer present. It was stolen. It was part of an elaborate hoax which has lasted for centuries. Peter and John are laden down with feelings of dejection and utter despair but on reaching the tomb, they are overcome with a new hope. Could it be possible? And so it is that lent began in darkness, but it ends with light. The light and beauty of the Easter flowers symbolise for us the new life offered to us. It is our choice. What do we think about the empty tomb? We wish each and every one of you a very happy and peaceful Easter.

Where do I stand? Today we read Mark’s account of Jesus’ Passion; yes it is the long Gospel but we should not miss out on the journey that this account offers us. A good question to ask is ‘Where do I stand’ in this Gospel? The cry of abandonment on the cross has to gbe one of the most frightening aspects of this account: ‘Eloi, Eloi Lema Sabgbachta=ni?” My God, my God, why have you deserted me? At the crucial moment, even God is silent. This is not an e3asy journey. We can remember those today who stand for justice, who fight for human rights, those who are counter-cultural, who stand against oppressive systems even though the path is dangerous and lonely. And we can continue to ask ourselves: ‘Where do I stand?’

The Mass Servers and the Priest lead the way into the Church, followed by the people for the Liturgy of the Word, the Liturgy of Baptism and the Mass of the Resurrection. Easter Water (blessed during the Liturgy) will be available at the door of the Church. The Holy Saturday Liturgy is the high-point of the Church’s year. Not an optional extra. It is at the heart of Christian Worship and Living. A night not to be missed.  
May he who said, “See I am risen and am with you” bring 
you much happiness and joy. Happy Easter everyone.

The Way of the Cross: The Stations, also known as the Way of the Cross, are A traditional way of reflecting on the journey of Jesus to his crucifixion. As far back as the fourth century, pilgrims flocked to the Holy Land to walk the route he had carried the cross. The Stations offer a way to immerse ourselves in this
familiar story. The way of the cross was ultimately not so much the way of the pain and sorrow but the way of unconditional love. The cross becomes a sign of suffering would be to miss the whole meaning and experience of the love of Jesus. We begin Holy Week today with an account of the triumphant entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem, but it is a short-lived triumph. In a few short days we will celebrate the Lord’s passion and death. There is a lot to reflect on in these days of Holy Week.

Eucharistic Ministers are asked to help on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
