Today, the Feast of Corpus Christi, we re-live a most significant event in the life of Jesus, one which has very important implications for our lives as Christians, namely the institution of the Eucharist. “If there is hunger anywhere in the world, then our celebration of the Eucharist is somehow incomplete everywhere in the world…in the Eucharist we receive Christ hungering in the world. He comes to us, not alone, but with the poor, the oppressed, the starving of the earth. Through him they are looking to us for help, for justice, for love expressed in action.We cannot properly receive the bread of life unless at the same time we give the bread of life to those in need wherever and whoever they may be “ Pedro Arrupe

The Most Holy Trinity: There is a beautiful Russian icon of the Blessed Trinity which depicts the 3 persons of the Trinity sitting at a table. A dish of food lies on the table at the front of which there is a vacant place. This is intended to convey openness, hospitality and welcome to the stranger and outsider. The vacant place is meant for each of us, and for all the human family. It signifies God’s invitation to us to share in the life of the Trinity, to share in the community of love between the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God doesn’t exclude us from God’s inner life. God doesn’t talk to us at the doorstep, as we tend to do with our fellow human beings. God invites us in to sit at his table. He wants to share his life with us.

A prayer for a Family: Father, I come before you today as a member of a family. As I take this moment to think of each member of my family, I thank you for the blessings they bring to me. I know that every family is different and sometimes I can get frustrated at the family you have given to me. May I learn to appreciate them through the bad times as well as the good and, as I grow, may my relationship with my family also grow in strength and love. Amen

The arrival of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost was by no means a quiet or gentle event. First there was a powerful wind from heaven – so loud it filled not just the room the apostles were in, but the whole house. Tongues of fire came to rest on their heads, and they suddenly began to speak in foreign languages as they were “filled with the Holy Spirit” The arrival of the Holy Spirit propels the apostles from the room where they were huddled out into the street where they begin to preach and to spread the good news far and wide.

World Communications Day: As well as the feast of the Ascension, today is World Communications Day. This year’s theme is “Communication and Mercy: A Fruitful Encounter”. The theme was chosen to coincide with the Holy Year of Mercy called by Pope Francis to highlight the mercy of God. In his message for the 50th World Communications Day, Pope Francis says “that he would like to invite all people of good will to rediscover the power of mercy to heal wounded relationships and to restore peace and harmony to families and communities”. He also highlights the importance of technology and social media as tools of communication, which he states “is a meeting place where we can either encourage or demean one another, engage in a meaningful discussion or unfair attacks…….. the internet can be used wisely to build a society which is healthy and open to sharing”. It is fitting that this day coincides with the Feast of the Assumption.
Mass on Sunday 15th May will be celebrated for and with all the young people of the Parish, especially those taking examinations and those deciding on career pathways and life choices at this time. This is a community celebration with special focus on our young people and we hope as many as possible can participate

Our Lady of Fatima Feast Day May 13th. On May 13th 1917 in Portugal, Our Lady of Fatima appeared to 3 children; Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco. It was noon and the children were tending sheep. Suddenly there was lightening and the children thinking it was going to rain began to run. Then just above a holm oak tree they saw a beautiful lady made of light, holding a rosary in her hand. Our Lady asked the children if they would pray the Rosary and make sacrifice for sinners and an end to world war and if they would come to this same place on the 13th of each month for 5 months. The Children agreed and this was the beginning of a new life for them. On July 13th Our Lady of Fatima appeared again and conveyed a secret to the children composed of 3 parts. In the final apparition on 13th October Our Lady appeared in the sky with St Joseph. Our Lady of Fatima was holding a brown scapular and St Joseph was holding the Child Jesus. Our Lady said “I am the Lady of the Rosary”.

Don’t Worry: They say a problem shared is a problem halved. “Don’t worry” is one of the most reassuring things that a friend can say. Isn’t it a relief when someone assures us there is no need to fret or worry, that everything will be okay? If only for a moment, we can breathe a sigh of relief, take the pressure off ourselves. Even if thing are messy now, we dare to hope that all will be well. “Don’t worry Jesus says. I am giving you the gift of peace, a peace the world cannot give”.

Love one another: In Today’s Gospel Jesus gives the disciples a new commandment – to love one another. But the love Jesus asks of the disciples here (and of us) is to love as he has loved, and that is a controversial love for some. It is controversial because Jesus’s love is without restrictions and without exclusion. It is a love of those we may not like, a love of those it is hard to love. This love was too radical for some of the religious leaders of Jesus’s time and ultimately led to his death. This love is sometimes too much for Christians today also to love the sinner to love those on the extreme margins of our society, to love those who have hurt us, to welcome back those who have done wrong, to include all at the table. Let the Church always be a place of mercy and hope, where everyone is welcome, loved and forgiven (Pope Francis)

Today we celebrate World Day of Prayer for Vocations. We ask that we may be filled with joy and the Holy Spirit as we carry on the mission of Jesus, Our Good Shepherd. We pray in thanksgiving today for our Bishop, Priests, Religious and Deacons and for an increase in vocations in the Church. May our youth listen to God’s call and be encouraged to respond generously. Today we focus on those called to priesthood. At a time when there is much social change and much questioning of the role of the priest in present day society, it is valuable to focus on a core role of the priest today. Priesthood is a gift of God to his people to enable us to share fully in the Eucharist and through it to grow in an awareness of God’s presence in every aspect of our lives. It is not given for the priest himself, but is a gift given for all through one individual. The world sees such a call as foolhardy and futile. To a person of faith, the call is one of love and mutual trust. We pray that God’s call may be answered in many hearts this year

St Faustina was a Polish Nun born in 1905 (initiated in 1926) and was one of a poor family of ten. Known as the Apostle of the Divine Mercy St Maria Faustina received frequent revelations and visits from Christ from 1931 until her death in 1938. On Good Friday 1937 Christ appeared to St Faustina and dictated to her the prayers for the Divine Mercy Novena, a 9 day prayer recited from Good Friday through the Octave of Easter, now known as Divine Mercy Sunday. The Novena can be said at any time of the year however and it is often accompanied by the Divine Mercy Chaplet which was revealed by Christ to the Saint as was the 3 O’Clock devotion. In 1934 she began recording her revelations in a diary, Divine Mercy in My Soul and the depths of her devotion only became known after her death when her diary was revealed. In 1981 an American lady was cured of lymphedema after praying at St Faustina’s tomb and a Priest with heart damage was cured in 1995. This led to St Faustina’s canonisation on April 30th 2000 – Divine Mercy Sunday that year.

The Christian date for Easter follows the moon and therefore changes every year. To remember when Easter Sunday falls, it is always the first Sunday after the first full Moon on or after March 21st.
We are an Easter People; the King of Friday’s people, as the Irish Language poems put it (Rí na hAoine). The tree of death has been replaced by a tree of life. Calvary has cancelled Eden. The fruit of Christ’s Passion is the sweet taste of eternity. Our journey from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday is a template of all that is life. The destination of our journey; of our pilgrimage through life is nothing less than Christ’s Easter Gift of victory an Eternal life. We wish you all a happy and joyful Easter!

HOLY WEEK is the most important time in the Church’s calendar year. We re-live the liturgies of the Church; passing with Jesus from death to the resurrection on Easter Sunday. Palm Sunday or Passion Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week. We begin with a procession of palms which are blessed to commemorate Christ’s triumphant arrival into Jerusalem for the Jewish festival of the Passover when great crowds lined the street waving palm branches and placing them in his path. We progress then to the stark reality of the reading of our Lord’s Passion. Palms blessed at all Masses. Donagh please assemble in the Community Centre at 9.45 for blessing of palms and proceed to the Church for Mass at 10am.Newtownbutler Please assemble in the school at 11.15am for blessing of palms before procession to the Church for Mass at 11.30 am.
HOLY THURSDAY or Maundy Thursday: Lent ends at sunset today when the EASTER TRIDUUM (meaning 3 days) begins. These are three of the holiest days in the Catholic calendar. On Holy Thursday the priests of each diocese gather with their Bishop to consecrate holy oils, which are used throughout the year for sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Orders and anointing of the sick. This ancient practice, which goes back to the 5th century is known as the Chrism Mass and is celebrated by Bishop McDaid in Monaghan Cathedral at 11am. This is the only Mass in the Diocese this morning and everyone is welcome to attend. Holy Thursday is the commemoration of the Last Supper of Jesus Christ. The Mass of the Last Supper is celebrated after sundown. The Liturgy of the Mass recalls the Passover/Last Supper which includes the washing of feet. The Mass ends with the removal of the Body of Christ from the tabernacle to another part of the Church. After this procession the alter is stripped bare and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament takes place until 11pm. This is an opportunity to watch and wait with Jesus as he asked his disciples to do at Gethsemane

GOOD FRIDAY A day of Fast and abstinence – Catholics aged between 18 – 60 fast today and all over 14 should abstain from meat. Good Friday commemorates the passion and death of our lord Jesus Christ on the cross. At three o’clock (the traditional hour of Christ’s death) we celebrate the Lord’s passion. We listen to John’s gospel account of the Passion before the ten solemn intercessions are made. The next part of the liturgy is the veneration of the cross followed by Holy Communion.  

HOLY SATURDAY the Easter Vigil takes place tonight as we honour the resurrection of Jesus (it is the day when Christ’s body lay in his tomb). The Easter Vigil is the high light of our Church’s year and is not an optional extra. Mass is not celebrated during daylight hours today. We will gather outside the Church at 8pm for the lighting of the new Easter Candle from the Paschal fire to remind us that Jesus is our light in the darkness. The Priest and the Mass servers lead the way into the darkened Church followed by those participating in the Easter Liturgy. Tonight 
we renew our Baptismal promises. Blessed Easter Water will be available at the front door of the Church.

Forgiveness and Repentance: Home is where we behave worst and are treated the best. The story of the Prodigal Son is Jesus’ response to the self-righteous, to the snobbery of the Scribes and Pharisees. In order to justify his dealing with sinners Jesus tells the story of the Prodigal Son. The story has as much to do with the father as with the indignant, sulking elder brother and his sense of injustice. The son is merely the prop to show up the opposing attitudes to forgiveness and repentance in the story. Forget the prodigal for a moment and see the others.
Mothering Sunday is this Sunday 6th March and is held each year on the fourth Sunday of Lent. This holiday is an ancient Christian festival originally intended to celebrate Mary, the Mother of Christ. We wish all Mothers in our Parish a very happy Mother’s Day!

A few of Pope Francis’ suggestions for examination of conscience:
Avoid envy, lust, hatred and negative feelings. These “devour our inner peace and transform us into destroyed and destructive people”.
“Heal the wounds of the heart with the oil of forgiveness”. Forgive those who have hurt you and heal the wounds you have caused in others. 
Reach out to the weak, elderly, sick, hungry, homeless and foreigners. This will determine how we will be judged. Recall the words of St John of the Cross: “In the evening of our life we will be examined on love”
The Catenian Rosary Group are appealing to parishioners to look around your houses for spare Rosary beads which they will then send abroad to those who will pray with them.

“Bear Fruit” Jesus in today’s Gospel is helping the crowd around him deal with the age old question; why do bad things happen? This question arises in the wake of the slaughter in the temple, of unsuspecting Galileans at worship, at the command of Pilate. We can empathise with them as we know too well of accidents and tragedies of all kinds where we might have asked the same question. Jesus insists that they have not done anything wrong. Their sudden death challenges those still alive to live to the full and to bear much fruit because life can end suddenly, life is fragile, no-one is indestructible.

What have you given up for Lent? In the phenomenon he calls the Globalization of indifference Pope Francis writes that “whenever our interior life becomes caught up in its own interests and concerns there is no longer room for others. Gods voice is no longer heard, the desire to do good fades and we end up being incapable of feeling compassion at the outcry of the poor, weeping for others pain, and feeling a need to help them” In his Lenten message Pope Francis suggests that if we’re going to give up anything for lent, even more than alcohol or sweets we should fast from indifference to our neighbour and to God. Lent is the perfect time to learn how to love again. Jesus certainly showed us the way – in his life and his ministry no one is excluded.

The Parish Envelope Weekly collection is the main source of income for our Parish and it is vital that as many as possible use them. You may wish instead to use a standing order to make your contribution – if so forms are available from the Parish office and from the Sacristy. Gift Aid: If you are a taxpayer you can use Gift Aid to donate to the Parish. Gift Aid adds to your weekly contribution and costs you nothing. Gift Aid forms available from the office and the Sacristy. Whichever way you make your contribution, envelope, standing order, cash in the box or Gift Aid it is very much appreciated. 

St Teresa’s Bookmark: Let nothing disturb you, let nothing dismay you, all things here are passing. God alone never changes. Patience obtains all things. The one who has God lacks nothing. God alone suffices.

Temptation: In today’s Gospel the Spirit leads Jesus into the desert for 40 days. In this place of wilderness Jesus endures the temptations of the devil. Jesus is tempted to eat, when he is not supposed to eat, to take the easy route of power through exploitation, when that is not his way. Although the devil plays a central role in this story, it is ultimately God who is in control. And so it is for us. Each of the temptations are about the same thing, our ability to trust in God

 Trust: In today’s Gospel Simon is most likely being polite when he agrees to try again for a catch, Simon obeys, takes the risk, lets go of his pride and the result is an overwhelming catch of fish. It can be hard to trust others at times. We are constantly being challenged to do this. The big challenge is to trust in God that he knows what he is doing and is constantly urging us to pull away from the shore. “A boat is safe in the harbour, but this is not the purpose of a boat” Paulo Coelho

Ash Wednesday is 10th February: a day of fast and abstinence which marks the beginning of Lent. Lent is a season of penance, reflection and fasting which prepares us for Christ’s Resurrection on Easter Sunday. Our foreheads are marked with ashes to humble our hearts and reminds us that life passes away on Earth – “Remember, Man is dust, and unto dust you shall return”. Mass in St Mary’s at 10am and in Donagh at 7pm. Ashes will be blessed at Masses today. Eucharistic Ministers are asked to help

The Good News of today’s readings is that God is with us in all our struggles, that he has lots of words of encouragement for us in the Bible. He also knows that we all need his support and help if we are to grow in love and one of the reasons he seeks to knit us together as a parish community. It is also one of the reasons why parishes everywhere strive to have Catholic Schools. Catholic Schools Week begins next Sunday 31st Jan. In light of today’s readings we wish to thank our teachers for all the good work they do in teaching our children about God and how much he loves all of us. We would also like to thank them for their commitment to marking Catholic Schools Week through various events.

17th January 2016 : World Day of Migrants and Refugees: During the past year we have watched in disbelief as hundreds of thousands of people flee their homes in Syria and other parts of the world. The image of 3 year old Aylan Kurdi washed up on a beach last August still remains with us. For a while we reacted and acted and called for a response from our Governments. We must continue to ask ourselves: how can we respond? Maybe I cannot become an Aid worker, but perhaps I could give some money. Maybe I cannot change the view of a nation but perhaps I could educate my children about the crisis. We must always be ready to welcome the refugee and migrant. Pope Francis says “Each of us is responsible for his or her neighbour; wherever they live”. Our faith is one of hospitality, compassion and mercy. “Hospitality, in fact grows from both giving and receiving”
Prayer for Migrants
Be with those who long for a friendly face.
Be with those who long for a loving touch.
Be with those who long to feel safe from wars and hatred.
Be with those who have lost hope.
Be with me today and with those I love.

Baptism: The waters of the Jordan River are not magical. They don’t contain a potion that will make a person chemically better or more faithful. The water is a symbol, a symbol of washing away the past, the tendency towards sin, and emerging once more, as if from the waters of the womb, into a new kind of life. For us too our baptism opens us to the power of God in our lives. It is not an enchantment that makes us supernaturally more powerful. Rather, it is the crowning of our creation as children of God.

WISDOM: There is a difference between being wise and being knowledgeable. It is hardly a coincidence that wisdom often seems to be the preserve of maturity. After all “you can’t put an old head on young shoulders”. Above all things, wisdom is required for true faith. As children grow, their faith is based on knowledge. As they reach adolescence, accepting what they have been told is no longer enough. Hence their faith is suspended for a period of questioning. Mature faith, supported by experience and reflection on that experience takes knowledge as far as it will go and uses wisdom to journey the rest of the way.
The Twelve Days of Christmas has a long history. They have been celebrated in Europe since before the Middle Ages and were a festive time when people held large parties. The Twelve Days of Christmas start on Christmas Day and ends on the feast of Epiphany, the day the Magi came to pay homage to the child Jesus. The eve of the Epiphany is known as Twelfth Night. The Epiphany celebrates Christ coming to bring salvation not just to the Jews but to the whole world

The Missing Child: Today’s Gospel is both an ordinary and extraordinary family story. A missing child is something that happens to most families at one stage or another. Mary and Joseph assumed that he would know to follow the group leaving Jerusalem. He assumed that they would know that he was in the Temple, his father’s home. Panic ensued when he couldn’t be found. They must have been beside themselves with worry and it takes three whole days to find him. When the initial exchange of relief, blame, hurt and excuse has passed Jesus journeys on with his parents. Despite his wisdom, he is still growing in understanding of what it means to be a Son. 
1 January: World Day of Peace – a feast day of our Church dedicated to peace, held on 1st January, on the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God. It was introduced in 1967 by Paul VI and the theme for this year is “Overcome Indifference and win Peace”

POPE FRANCIS’ 10 TIPS ON HOW TO BE A HAPPIER AND BETTER PERSON
1.LIVE AND LET LIVE Don’t judge others, Francis says, but let them get on with their lives
2.GIVE YOURSELVES TO OTHERS: “If you withdraw into yourself, you run the risk of becoming egocentric. And stagnant water becomes putrid
3.PROCEED CALMLY IN LIFE: Pope Francis refers to a quote from Argentine writer Ricardo Guiraldes. The novelist writes that in one’s youth, a person is “a rocky stream that runs over everything”, but as one gets older, one becomes “a running river, quietly peaceful”
4.WORK FOR PEACE: “We are living in a time of many wars” and “the call for peace must be shouted…”
5.ENJOY LEISURE: “Consumerism has brought us anxiety”. So parents need to set aside time to play with their children without distractions such as television and X box
6.CREATE DIGNIFIED JOBS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE: We must be creative with young people and provide ample opportunities to ensure they stay on the right path
7.RESPECT AND TAKE CARE OF NATURE: Environmental degradation “is one of the biggest challenges we have”
8.LETTING GO OF NEGATIVE THINGS QUICKLY IS HEALTHY: Stay positive when talking about other people
9.DON’T PROSELYTISE; RESPECT OTHER’S BELIEFS: Rather than proselytise, it’s better to use our beliefs to inspire others and help them grow
10.SUNDAYS SHOULD BE HOLIDAYS: Rest is necessary because it is a tool for reinvigoration and for spending positive time with one’s family

In all the madness of the festive season, we need some peace and quiet and time to reflect. Mary was caught up in the excitement of being pregnant, and wonderment at what the angel had told her. She went as quickly as she could to visit Elizabeth. Perhaps she needed a bit of “head space” to reflect on everything that was happening. As we count down to Christmas, we may need a little time out. Make a little time to reflect and pray today. Wrap up warm and head out for a walk, visit your church in the quiet of the afternoon, or take a few moments to yourself at home to get away from the noise.

Friday 25th December – The Feast of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ – Christmas Day
Christmas is a time of God showing his great love for us. It can be a time for healing and renewed strength. We celebrate the birth of the Christ Child. His birth brought great joy to the world. Shepherds, wise men and angels all shared in the excitement. They knew this was no ordinary baby. The prophets had told of his coming hundreds of years before. As days go, they don’t get much better than Christmas day. It’s a great day to be alive!

In this Jubilee year, may the Church echo the word of God that resounds strong and clear as a message and a sign of pardon, strength, aid and love. May she never tire of extending mercy, and be ever patient in offering compassion and comfort. May the Church become the voice of every man and woman, and repeat confidently without end: “Be mindful of your mercy, O Lord, and your steadfast love, for they have been from of old” (Ps 25:6)
St Lucy’s Day: 13th December. Her feast coincided with the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year, before calendar reforms, so her feast day has become a festival of light. St Lucy’ Day is celebrated most in Scandinavia, with their long dark winters, where it is a major feast day

Mary our Model for Life: Mary is a figure for all time, and for our time. She has been where we have been. She walks with us. Mary is the woman facing an unexpected pregnancy. She is the teenager realising that all her plans and dreams have suddenly been changed. She is the anxious mother and the widow watching her son face a violent and unjust execution. But how many times did she find strength with this memory: “The Lord is with you”. And how many times did she hear again and again in the face of overwhelming impossibility: “Nothing is impossible with God”.

Waiting: Today is the First Sunday of Advent and we begin the season of “waiting”. The Gospel today has powerful, indeed distressing, images of great signs that will appear. For many of us this year we saw lots of signs that Christmas was coming, even as far back as September, which is more distressing than any of the images in the Gospel today! It can be an exciting time or even one of anxiety where we find ourselves on high alert a lot of the time. So, what will our preparations be like? In the middle of the crazy, busy days in the run up to Christmas, can we stop and invite God into our hearts and lives once again?
Friday 4th December is First Friday and we honour the Sacred Heart: Mass in St Mary’s on Friday at 10am and in Donagh at 7pm. Confessions for First Friday: Newtownbutler on Thursday from 7 - 8pm, Sat 12 – 1pm and in Donagh before Friday’s 7pm Mass

Christ the King The feast of Christ the King is the final Sunday in the liturgical calendar. When we hear the word King, images rush to mind of crowns, thrones, palaces and gold. Not this King. This king was born to peasants, treated all people the same, proclaimed messages that were neither followed nor popular, experienced brutal torture and death. 
It’s not easy to be a King in the world when your Kingdom is not of the world. The kingship of God is just as much at odds with our world today as it was with his two thousand years ago. But God does not force or bribe us. He lays the truth before us and invites us to follow him; to have him as our King. That’s not a good way to build a kingdom on earth, but it’s the only way to fulfil God’s vision for our lives.

The end of the world: At this time of the year, winter has arrived and most of the leaves have fallen and cold and darkness seems to be more present. A similar picture is portrayed in our Gospel today. People in Jesus’ time believed that the end of the world would come in their lifetime. Jesus says that no one will know when this will happen and that it is not for us to worry about. What we should be concerned about is how to live every day in God’s love and service.

Giving Everything. Grandparents, like the widow in the Gospel, have so much to teach us about values and life. The widow in our Gospel story was a woman of faith, a woman of charity, who gave not of what she had to spare but everything she had – giving without thinking. Grandparents, like the widow of Zarephath and the widow in the Gospel, share the last of what they have and in doing so receive so much more in return. They show us that it doesn’t really matter what others think, it only matters what we can share from the heart that makes the real difference.
Our Church dedicates the entire month of November to the Holy Souls in Purgatory; where we pray for the souls of the faithful departed. Those in Purgatory cannot pray for themselves, this is why they are called “poor” souls. They can no longer merit anything for themselves and rely entirely on others to pray and make sacrifices on their behalf. It is an act of charity that we can give for those we have known and loved, for our ancestors who gave us life, for those souls whose memory is lost, and for those who have no one else to pray for them. Mass on Wednesday at 7pm in Newtownbutler to remember our dead
Eternal Father, I offer you the most precious blood of your divine son, Jesus, 
  Along with all the Masses said throughout the world today, 
  For all the holy souls in Purgatory, and for sinners everywhere.

This will happen in Cuil Darach, Clones on 25 November at 7.30 for 8pm. Tea will be available from 7.30pm. You are warmly welcome to join us.

Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann: following a great year with a very successful county Fleadh and Rose Connolly capturing an All-Ireland, it is the time of year to canvas once again for branch membership. You can join our local branch for only £8 or family membership for £14. Contact any committee member for details.
Zumba fitness classes begin on Saturday 7th November for 5 weeks in the Parish Hall Newtownbutler at 8.30am. Pay as you go – new members welcome. Time to look at fitting into that little black dress for Christmas!

“Be-Attitudes” The people we honour as saints today were by no means saints from the day of their birth. They were human like the rest of us, but they practiced the Beatitudes, and made them come alive as an example for all of us to follow. People come and go in our lives, often hungry, poor, those who are persecuted. These are the people, the saints possibly, that God sends our way as reminders of how we should be. After all, the Beatitudes, are about “being”. Our “Be-Attitudes”. The saints are people who let the light of God shine through them to reveal something more in life and to give hope.

Abundant Life: Today we celebrate World Mission Sunday, a time to highlight the importance of sharing the Good News. The theme of this year’s Mission Sunday is ‘Abundant Life’, a phrase which brings to mind a fullness of life and a spirit of joy. Is this how we go about our mission? The disciples in today’s Gospel certainly have missionary zeal, but they have got the focus wrong – they are thinking of themselves and their status, rather than the task they have been given. But Jesus teaches them a lesson in discipleship – their task is to serve. Something to think about as we reflect on our mission today.

Giving it all up: For the man who approaches Jesus in today’s Gospel, the stakes are too high. He is living a good life and keeping God’s commandments, but he is unable, or unwilling, to make the final push and give up his attachment to wealth and possessions. Start today: think about your contributions to charity or to your parish – do you really give as much as you can afford? Is there some luxury – daily take-away coffee, for example – that you could forego and give the money to charity? Could you spare some time for a good cause? Start heading down this path and who knows where it will lead!

Passing on the Faith: Today’s readings offer an opportunity to think about marriage and family. Somewhere along the line, someone in your family made the decision to follow Jesus. Your parents may have brought you to be baptised, just like their parents did for them, and so on down through the generations. However you came to faith, the responsibility now rests with you. Jesus invited the little children to come to him. We have a responsibility to pass on the faith in our own families. ‘May the Lord bless us all the day s of our life’ (Psalm 127).
Last Thursday 1 October we celebrated the Feast of St Therese of the Child Jesus – Therese Martin – she died in Lisieux on 30 September 1987 aged 24 years.

The faithful will also be asked to make a contribution to the missionary work of the Church and we again appeal to your generosity. Last year the Diocese of Clogher contributed €87,991 was in the top five in the whole country. Last year’s total contribution from the whole country was €1758,295.00 which went to help the Society of the Propagation of the Faith in Countries like South Africa, Uganda, Namibia and Botswana.

Antidote to Evil: In today’s Gospel Jesus makes it quite clear how evil and good manifest themselves. Anyone who is for him is not evil. Giving in his name is a sign of goodness, the antithesis and antidote to evil. But he is strong in maintaining that evil gets its own results and we must sacrifice all to keep it away and bring goodness and sacrificial love to the fore in our lives as disciples.
