 John the Baptist: wild man, big hairy biker of the Gospels, emerging from the wilderness calling us to join the circus, become acrobats, perform somersaults, turn our lives completely around – this is repentance. No half measures for John. In some areas of our lives are we spinning off headlong in the wrong direction? Are some of our attitudes and behaviours holding us back from living peaceably in the world, blocking our path to God? What is it that we need to change in our attitudes and behaviour? Which area of our lives need to be healed? What steps towards healing and wholeness might we take? Is there anyone within our circle of acquaintances who can help? “To live is to change and to be perfect is to have changed often” Cardinal J H Newman

You know that feeling of waiting for something or someone? The feeling of excitement or maybe anxiety? Waiting is not always seen as a good thing but it can be a time for growth. And so we enter into the season of waiting: Advent. The Gospel reminds us to be alert and use this time to prepare. What will our preparations be like? God is with us in many different ways, trying to catch our attention in the midst of our busy days. As we fight our way through the queues in the coming weeks, can we use 5 minutes, 7 minutes, 20 minutes……to stop, be still, to ask God to enter into our hearts and lives once more. In the 2nd reading today, Paul talks of the “things we prefer to do under the cover of the dark” and urges us to “arm ourselves and appear in the light. As we enter into Advent, it is the ideal time to examine our own lives – to come out into the light.

 A statue of St Patrick saved from destruction in Co Leitrim is on its way to a new home in Thailand. “St Patrick of Gortletteragh” originally stood in the Village’s Parish Church and was then moved to a local school, only to end up in a skip during the school’s refurbishment. Local children saw the figures potential as a crude goalpost and snatched St Patrick for their own use. It was through a chance conversation with visiting priest Fr Joe Maier;( a renowned figure in Bangkok for his work through the Mercy centre which provides for some of the city’s poorest), that the plan to send St Patrick to Bangkok was realised. Fr Joe, who has a special fidelity to St Patrick was only too happy to accept the statue for his centre. And so a crate containing “St Patrick of Gortletteragh” recently departed by air for Bangkok after local supporters in Co Leitrim fundraised in excess of €3000 for the flight and a donation to the centre.

This is the final Sunday of Year C and today in our reading of Luke’s Gospel, we hear the account of Jesus’ crucifixion. It is the Feast of Christ the King. In Jesus’ time, people had certain expectations of a king. They expected that the great messianic king would lead a rebellion and bring war and judgement, and that he would establish his kingdom on earth. The Jesus that we see in today’s Gospel appears to be the exact opposite, which is why he is mocked on the cross. A true king wold be able to save himself from humiliation and death. But Jesus is a different sort of king, and one of the criminals hanging beside Jesus is the first to recognise this – the first person too to witness the forgiveness and reconciliation that Jesus came to bring. That is what his kingdom is all about.
St Cecilia, whose feast day is November 22 was born in the second century and is a famous Roman Martyr, understood to have been be-headed by a sword. St Cecilia is the Patron Saint of Music and her feast day has become the occasion for concerts and festivals.

Last year the Pope marked the official start of a symbolic year for Catholics across the world by opening the original Holy Door at St Peter’s Basilica in Rome for the first time since the turn of the century. The aim of the Year of Mercy was to allow Catholics to show mercy and compassion and focus on forgiveness, reconciliation and doing good. The crossing of the threshold of a Holy Door is a sign of the passage from sin to grace. The conclusion of the Jubilee Year of Mercy will be celebrated this Sunday by Pope Francis with a special Mass of thanksgiving in St Peters’ Basilica

Not a hair of your head. In today’s Gospel there is talk of plagues and famines, persecution and imprisonment, betrayal and death, as Jesus alerts his followers to the dangers ahead. But it culminates with a reassuring image. In spite of all this hardship, Jesus promises a reward for our patience and endurance – “Not a hair of your head will be lost”. Jesus promises to be with us in times of trial and to give us “eloquence and a wisdom” to deal with whatever is thrown at us. That’s quite a promise. Do we believe it? If we truly believe that God knows us so intimately that he knows exactly how many hairs we have on our heads we must believe that he cares enough to give us the strength to face whatever obstacles we encounter in our day to day lives.

We remember them (From the Gates of Repentance New Union Prayer Book)
At the rising of the sun and it’s going down, we remember them.
At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of Winter, we remember them.
At the opening of buds and in the rebirth of Spring, we remember them.
At the rustling of leaves and the beauty of Autumn, we remember them.
At the beginning of the year and when it ends, we remember them.
When we are lost and sick at heart, we remember them.
When we have joys we long to share, we remember them.
When we have decisions that are difficult to make, we remember them
As long as we live, they too shall live, for they are a part of us, as we remember them.

S
acrifice: In these dark and dreary days of November, as the Church year is coming to a close, this is a time for remembering the dead. It might be worth considering and praying for people who sacrificed themselves for us or for others; who gave up their own personal dreams and ambitions to look after a sick parent or relative, who stayed at home on the farm or in the family business so that another could go away to college or to work. These might seem small sacrifices, but in our minds and hearts they remain a sure and solid witness to the grace of God in the soul of that person

Syria has been ravaged by a brutal civil war since March 2011. The war has knocked on every door, entered every house and left behind devastation. Nearly 4.8 million people have been forced to flee their countries to seek refuge. More than 230.000 people have been killed and thousands more injured in the five year conflict. Pope Francis has called for an end to the fighting and has highlighted the assistance Caritas agencies including Trociare have provided to the Syrian people, regardless of their ethnic or religious background. Pope Francis has called on us to urgently pray for peace. He asks us to pray in our homes, in our communities and in our Parishes.

A teacher was testing the children in her class to see if they understood the concept of getting to Heaven. She asked them “if I sold my house and my car and gave all my money to the Church, would that get me into Heaven”? “No” the children answered. “If I cleaned the Church every day and mowed the lawn, would that get me into Heaven”? Again the answer was “No”. Now she was smiling. Hey they’re really getting it she thought. “Well if I was kind to animals and children and loved my husband would that get me into Heaven”? Again they all answered “No”. She was just bursting with pride! “Well she said then how can I get into Heaven”? A five year old at the front of the class shouted out “You gotta be dead Miss”!

This Sundays Gospel is the story of Zacchaeus; who was a tax collector and much disliked by the people of Jerico. When Zacchaeus saw Jesus coming, he rushed ahead and climbed a tree to get a better view, as he was a short man. Of all the people there that day Jesus saw Zacchaeus immediately and was waiting with open arms for him. He knew that Zacchaeus wanted to live a better life and that he had showed great courage by offering his home and his faith to Jesus. Jesus was going to help him “For the son of man came to seek out and to save the lost”. No matter how afraid or down we have become it is of great importance to know that God welcomes each and every-one of us into the Kingdom of God. It is not always easy to do the right thing, to give back, to go the extra mile but Jesus walks with us every step of the way and sent the Holy Spirit to empower and guide us.

In today’s Gospel, Jesus asks us to be humble. What does this mean? The selfie culture we live in, the biggest and best and shiniest next thing we long to have, all get in the way of our humility. Jesus is not interested in our flashy phones, our cool labels or our on-trend language. What Jesus came to the world to show us was that a man who is truly human and truly divine could work as a carpenter until he was thirty years old in a quiet and humble way. The dictionary defines humility as being modest and not thinking that one is more superior to others. It is difficult to practice humility but good for the soul. Humility is about letting of the likes and dislikes, and the wish lists; allowing ourselves to be happy for others to be joyful for the blessings we have in our lives without always wanting more.

Today is Mission Sunday. It is the one day when we are specifically asked to dig into our hearts and minds and assist our Church’s universal mission. Our theme for this years’ Mission Sunday is ‘Every Christian is a Missionary.’ In his message for Mission Sunday, Pope Francis says “As they travel through the streets of the world, the disciples of Jesus need to have a love without limits, the same measure of love that our Lord has for all people. We proclaim the most beautiful and greatest gifts that he has given us: his life and his love”. Irish missionary disciples need our spiritual and financial help today. We have some 1,200 men and women working in all corners of the world, each playing his or her part on the missionary journey. Your financial help today is crucial to their work. We can’t do it without you. Large or small, it makes a huge difference and we thank you sincerely for your help.

“It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start” “ Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the greatest poverty of all” St Teresa

Today’s Gospel is about perseverance in prayer. All the odds were stacked against the widowed woman, she has no male to back her up in the male-dominated society she lived in and the judge was ruthless and unjust. However, against these odds the judge granted her request. Here Jesus is telling us that, no matter how difficult it is to understand our faith, no matter how often we feel we have to ask God to help us, we need to be secure in the knowledge that God is listening and loves us. Jesus is asking us to persist in prayer and right relationship with God. We should not give up, for giving up is easier than keeping on! God’s love is there for all of us and he asks us never to give up on our faith.

Next Sunday, 23rd October is Mission Sunday, the annual worldwide Catholic celebration of mission. Pope Francis describes mission “As a passion for Jesus and a passion for his people” Irish missionaries have been the face of God for many communities all over the world during the last century and we think of and pray for Irish religious missionaries on this day. Our prayers and financial offerings on Mission Sunday go towards supporting missionaries and their mission projects where the Church is new, young or poor. A special collection will be taken up next Sunday in aid of our brothers and sisters currently on mission, allowing them to continue their work.

The Poor Clare Sisters in Co Galway have said there is continuing interest in the contemplative life of their order despite the lures of modern life. Following the latest Monastic Experience day at their Nun’s island convent, Sr Faustina said while those visiting and making enquiries varied from women “steeped in their faith, to those returning to it” there is one common factor bringing visitors to Nun’s Island. “In a world of smartphones and connectivity it is the connectivity to something deeper they seek” Sr Faustina said of those she had met and spoken with and she describes the Monastic Experience as “our answer to that seeking” Irish Catholic

A very mean man instructed his wife, before he died that he wanted all his wealth and assets to be buried with him. She was to sell everything and ensure that his money would go with him to the grave. She agreed to do his bidding and at the funeral everyone was curious as to how she would carry out this dying wish. And thus she had done so: she had sold all his assets and as his widow the revenue reverted to her account. She then wrote a cheque to her late husband and buried the cheque with him in the grave! So (a) you can’t take it with you and (b) we should make

T
he Group of Lepers at the heart of today’s story appear shy of even approaching Jesus. The stand we are told “some way off” pleading for his pity. Their society treated them harshly. Whatever their physical ailments, the psychological consequences of their condition would have been debilitating: enforced quarantine and alienation from all that was familiar. Effectively, it was a living death. Medical science can deal nowadays with what was formerly labelled “Leprosy”
But modern man is still wedded to the idea of the leper: the one or the group who must be marginalised with particular severity lest they corrupt the wellbeing of the wider community. Our Church must reflect on Jesus’ approach to the lepers of his day. We have much to learn from him!
The National Day of Prayer For children takes place this Friday 14th October. Organised by the Society for Missionary Children, the occasion gives children a good opportunity to think of those children who are less fortunate, to pray for and to share with those less fortunate

I used to be a terrible worrier. You know the type. Somebody who actually worries about not worrying! A lovely friend once berated me for “worry worming”. He said “For God’s sake Sally, would you listen to yourself; you talk a lot about your faith but you are certainly not putting it into action. Absence of faith is fear and absence of fear is faith” That simple but hugely profound sentence has come to my rescue time and again and I would go so far as to say that it is the reason I don’t really worry anymore. Because I do have the incredible gift that faith is, and as in Luke it has increased my joy, my serenity and my peace. Every prayer is an act of faith in God and faith that whatever happens in this life, God and I will deal with it together. Sally McEllistrim

Today’s Gospel is a wake-up call for each of us. We are those five brother mentioned in this Gospel. We are the ones receiving a very clear message that wealth can serve God’s purpose, but should never replace him as the centre of our lives. Wealth should not be measured just in material things but also take into account our health, our talents, our education, our faith. Even a small kindness can have a tremendous impact on a person’s suffering. The Catechism of the Catholic Church says that “anyone experiencing human misery – for eg those suffering material deprivation, unjust oppression, physical and psychological illness and death, are the poor”. God identifies with every Lazarus of the world – the hungry, the sick, the unborn, even criminals in prison. One of them is lying at your door. In this year of Mercy Pope Francis gently reminds us time and again of the obligations on us contained in the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy

I
f you think that all the parables that Jesus told were nice stories about people of integrity then today’s parable will surely make you think again. This is a parable about a scoundrel but it praises him and his wisdom. The Manager has been given notice by his CEO and he decides to even up the tables for those who are struggling to pay their debts to the company. There is self-interest on his part but Jesus is telling us that the only value the money really has is in the way it is disposed of and in doing this the manager wins the hearts and minds of the workers. The manager knows that none of this material wealth is permanent and uses the authority that he has to relieve the suffering of those indebted to his company.

A BOOK OF NO VALUE?  
A book of no value to the man doing the sale
Just an old bible the cover feeble and frail

From use the pages were tattered and worn
Inscribed in the front is the date he was born.

Almost every day the old bible was read
Then he’d ponder the words that our Saviour said.

A comfort to him when he lost his wife
A comfort to him throughout most of his life

My neighbour has died, his kids have left town
I guess they didn’t want his old bible around

The man at the sale was going to throw it away
I said to the man “the bible with me let it stay”

When I read from his bible once in a while, I remember him well
My neighbour, who now with the lord does dwell James K Huber

In today’s Gospel the three parables of things lost and found emphasise the unending forgiveness of God and God’s rejoicing for those who return. In each of the situations there is a frantic search for that which is lost and a huge celebration when the lost is found. The elder brother in the third parable feels hard done by, hurt, full of anger and resentment. He has two options: he can walk away full of resentment or he can try to let go of the anger he feels towards his brother. The latter is a more difficult path but it is the only one that leads to life, no matter how painful the journey may be. “Forgiveness isn’t about releasing someone from accountability for his actions. It is about letting go of our anger and resentment”. Jane Mellett

T
odays Gospel is troubling. Does Jesus really expect us to hate our families, friends and even ourselves in order to be his followers? Jesus is making a point here about how we attach ourselves to things and to people, even to images of ourselves. Attachment can cause all sorts of suffering in our lives. If we are to grow, we move on from the comfortable and let go of the familiar and this can often be painful. Today we can ask ourselves “what is it I need to let go of”? This weekend the church celebrates the Canonisation of Mother Teresa of Calcutta. She was human like you and I. And because of her humanity she sometimes found the burden of discipleship heavy to bear. She struggled at times with depression and endured her own dark night of the soul. She struggled with her doubts about her relationship with God because of all the suffering she had saw in the world. And yet she let go of everything to surrender herself to God. Mother Teresa took that leap of faith and lived her life in spite of her doubts – demonstrating to us that you can live a faith-filled life and be a disciple even when filled with doubt or pain

Prayer for Grandparents composed by Pope Benedict XV1 in 2008 (extract)
Lord Jesus you were born of the Virgin Mary, the daughter of St Joachim and Anne. Look with love on grandparents the world over. Protect them! They are a source of enrichment for families, the Church and all of society. Support them! Enable them to be teachers of wisdom and courage that they may pass on to the future generations the fruits of their mature human and spiritual experience. Lord Jesus, help all families and all society to value the presence and roles of grandparents. May they never be ignored or excluded, but always encounter respect and love. The Irish National Grandparents Pilgrimage to Knock shrine is 11th September

MOTHER TERESA – CHAMPTION OF THE POOR: In our time, Mother Teresa was an outstandingly charismatic person. Pope Francis will declare her a Saint in an historic ceremony on the 4th September. By doing so the Church offers St Teresa to all of us, as a model to give us hope and as an intercessor to plead, on our behalf, before God. Mother Teresa once wrote “if I ever become a saint – I will surely be one of darkness - I will continually be absent from Heaven – to light the light of those in darkness on earth”. These words are the key to the understanding of her whole life. “Come be my light”, Jesus had said to her. Without doubt Mother Teresa did her utmost to be the light of God’s love in the lives of those who were experiencing darkness. She strove to make the love of God known and experienced by as many as possible, especially by the poorest of the poor; the dying; the children; the disabled; those whose lives seem to have been a failure. What is much less well known was that she, herself, lived in “terrible darkness” for long periods of her life. Now that she has become a saint, those who experience similar difficulties can confidently rely on her support in their prayers

o I know you? What a frightening thought, that the master would reject us and deny that he knows us. To think that we would have done our best to live a good life, only to meet him at the narrow door and be denied admission! Yet many of us think we have it all sussed. Like those in today’s Gospel we think we are surely safe. We can all become complacent. We think we won’t be denied eternal salvation because we say our prayers, go to Mass every Sunday, and try our best to live good and holy lives. Wouldn’t it be disappointing after all that if we turned into someone that Christ does not recognise? There are elements in all our lives that Christ would not recognise. What are the areas in our lives that need to change, in order that he might invite us in?

Pope Francis made “Forgiveness” the theme of his recent private pilgrimage to Assisi. He prayed in silence at the Porziuncola chapel where St Francis, his Papal name-sake, founded the Franciscan order in the 13th Century. Pope Francis delivered an address at the Basilica of St Mary in which he said “Dear brothers and sisters, in this Holy Year of Mercy, it becomes ever clearer that the path of forgiveness can truly renew the Church and the world……..the world needs forgiveness; too many people are caught up in resentment and harbour hatred, because they are incapable of forgiving. They ruin their own lives and the lives of those around them rather than finding the joy of serenity and peace. Let us ask St Francis to intercede for us, so that we may always be humble signs of forgiveness and channels of mercy” Irish Catholic 11th August

Monday 15th August - the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This feast day commemorates the death of Mary and her bodily assumption into Heaven. Because it signifies the Blessed Virgin’s passing into eternal life, it is the most important of all Marian feast and is a Holy Day of Obligation. The Assumption is a very old feast of the Church, celebrated universally by the sixth century. The earliest printed reference to the belief that Mary’s body was assumed into Heaven dates from the fourth century, in a document entitled “The Falling Asleep of the Holy Mother of God”. The document is written in the voice of the Apostle John, to whom Christ on the cross had entrusted the care of his mother and recounts the death, laying in the tomb and assumption of the Blessed Virgin. Tradition variously places Mary’s death at Jerusalem or at Ephesus where John was living. Masses for the Feast Day: in Newtownbutler on Monday at 11am and in Donagh at 7pm.

Wed 17th August: OUR LADY OF KNOCK: The story of Knock began on the 21st August 1879 when our Lady, St Joseph and St John the Evangelist appeared at the south gable of Knock Parish Church. This miraculous apparition was witnessed by 15 people, young and old. Knock is an internationally recognised Marian Shrine and was visited by St John Paul 11 as part of his 1979 papal pilgrimage to Ireland. A new documentary film on Knock and its apparition will open in Irish cinemas on August 26th. Strange Occurrences in a Small Irish Village looks at all aspects of Knock, from the historic apparition of 1879 to the more than one million pilgrims who visit the shrine annually and the community welcoming the faithful visitors. The film takes its title from 1879 press coverage of events in Knock and was directed by Aoife Kelleher. She says “At the very heart of Knock is this story about an apparition but in making the documentary we wanted to look at the apparition in its social context and its historical context. Strange Occurrences in a Small Irish Village has a Facebook page for updates on cinemas to screen the film: https://www.facebook.com/knockfilm/

W
e do not like to wait. Listening to a radio discussion recently about the ever increasing role technology plays in our lives, one panellist described how her smartphone had become almost like an extension of her arm. We don’t know how to be alone or to have free time anymore, she lamented. If we’re waiting for a friend or family member, the slightest delay has us reaching for our phones to catch up on emails, social media or the latest news. Delayed flights, or food that doesn’t arrive promptly in a restaurant, can make us impatient and jittery. We have lost the art of waiting. Yet Jesus regularly emphasises the importance of waiting. The “waiter” in today’s Gospel is a devoted servant, eagerly awaiting his master’s return. We don’t know when Jesus will return, but we must be ready to open the door to the Master when he knocks. Let us not be found asleep on the job or distracting ourselves with the trivial things in life!

Building bigger barns: There is a lot of pressure these day to upgrade. The idea is that we can always go bigger and do better for ourselves. If we think about it most of us will admit we have more than we need to get by, but there is still a drive to acquire more “stuff”. The rich man in today’s parable was busying himself with upgrading. But Jesus offers a gentle reminder that really these are not the things that matter. Material things should always take second place to the priorities for living established by God. The rich man had stored up riches on earth instead of focusing on being rich in sight of God. After all we can’t take any of these treasures with us. What treasures are important to us?

How do we pray? Is there a right or a wrong way of doing it? Should we pray lying in bed or kneeling at the altar, alone or in company? The first disciples weren’t quite sure how to go about things, and today we see them approach Jesus to ask him “Lord, teach us to pray” In response he gave them the words of what we now know as the “Our Father”. But he had some more advice for the disciples too – keep praying! If you were to call on a friend for help in the middle of the night, Jesus says, your persistence alone would convince him to help. If a child asks for food his parents will naturally grant him what he asks for. The message is clear – we just have to keep asking. There are many different ways to pray. It matters less where and how we choose to pray, than the fact that we choose to pray at all. If we keep asking, if we keep the lines of communication open, God will grant us what is good.

The Host with the Most: In today’s Gospel we have the memorable image of the two sisters, Mary and Martha, one listening carefully to the Lord and the other bustling about caring for their guest. Think of the last time you had friends or family over for a meal or a gathering. Were you more of a Mary or a Martha? Many of us fall more easily into one category than the other – the “host with the most” who is always up to their eyes with the cooking and catering and table clearing; or the chatterer who is happy to leave the washing up until later? Jesus does not criticise Martha for her efforts, but rather gently rebukes her for “worrying and fretting about so many things”. Martha is so distracted and bogged down in her work that she has forgotten to spend time with Jesus. This is familiar territory for many of us. We are often distracted and busy. Do we make space to sit at the Lord’s feet and listen? Can we take time each day, perhaps, for a Scripture reading?

Workers in Singapore have uncovered a time capsule at the nation’s oldest Catholic Church. During construction work on the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd, the capsule, which is 173 years old was found beneath the structure’s foundation stone. When opened the shoebox sized capsule revealed a prayer booklet, 18th and 19th century coins and newspapers dating from 1843. The cathedral Rector Msgr. Philip Heng said the capsule served to illustrate the confidence among Singapore’s first faithful that Catholicism would endure in the region. “The founders realised that one day, someone was going to be digging and would see that they had anticipated and had hope that the Catholic community would still be in existence in Singapore centuries later”

Walk in my shoes (Judgement)
Pray don’t find fault with a man who limps, or stumbles along the road. Unless you have worn the shoes he wears or struggled beneath his load.

There may be tacks in his shoes that hurt though hidden away from view. Or the burden he bears, placed on your back, might cause you to stumble too.

Don’t sneer at the man who is down today. Unless you have felt the blow that caused his fall, or felt the shame that only the fallen know.

You may be strong, but still the blows that were his, if dealt to you in the self-same way at the self-same time, might cause you to stagger too.

T
he Good Samaritan. There’s a story told of students who are learning how to preach. They are given the task of an homily on the Good Samaritan. Their eloquence knows no bounds. But unknown to them, their tutor has positioned a homeless man outside the door they are to pass when their preaching was over. Most avert their eyes and run by, tripping along on the wings of their eloquence. One stops and spends time with the poor man. The prize for best preaching goes to that student. For what good is eloquence if the preacher is not converted by his own message? The story of the Good Samaritan would be easier but for the sting in the tail. Going and doing as the Good Samaritan did is not an easy path. It is much easier to preach about it and leave the practical implications to others. The radical nature of Christ’s teaching reaches its summit in the story of the Good Samaritan which challenges his listeners to re-examine their prejudice towards Samaritans and all of us to explore our deepest fears and ingrained prejudices against others.

Monaghan Charismatic Prayer Group are hosting a healing Mass in St Louis Convent on Monday 11th July at 8pm. Celebrant is Rev Eamon Kelly, Letterkenny

Mass of Sending: On Saturday 25th June, at the vigil Mass in St Macartan’s Cathedral, Monaghan over 200 young people from across the Diocese of Clogher were “sent out” as diocesan representatives and leaders on a number of pilgrimages over the coming weeks. The young people are part of Clogher don Óige, the Diocesan Youth Ministry; founded in 2003 and which seeks to inspire young people to grow in esteem, confidence and faith. The journeys in which they participate include the annual pilgrimage to Lourdes, ten days of prayer at the ecumenical community of Taize in France and the forthcoming World Youth Day in Krackow, Poland, which will be attended by Pope Frances. This Mass of sending was presided over by Fr Leo Creelman (Chaplain to Clogher don Óige)

Lough Derg:(St Patrick’s Purgatory) is among the oldest centres of Christian Pilgrimage supposedly dating back to the sixth century and is renowned in Irish Christian tradition since the time of St Patrick. This small lake-island is a special place of peace and prayer and has been receiving pilgrims continuously for well over 1000 years. The traditional three-day pilgrimage begins at the end of May and ends mid-August and is a 3 day fast incorporating a 24 hour vigil. (The 1 day retreats were introduced at Lough Derg in 1992). In former times the emphasis was more on the physical penance and hardship of the pilgrimage exercises. Nowadays pilgrims see it as a grace-filled opportunity to get away from the stress of modern day living. Many coming of the Island talk of being physically and spiritually renewed. The sacrament of Reconciliation has always been and still is, very central to this pilgrimage. Its celebration every morning in the Basilica is a moment of joy and hope for penitents and priests alike. However it is the Eucharist that most pilgrims experience as the high point of their pilgrimage. A Clogher Diocesan one day retreat will be held on Lough Derg on Saturday 20th August 2016.

The lead guitarist with the Irish band U2, David Evans (the Edge) has become the first rock star to play in the Sistine Chapel. Backed by a choir of seven Irish teenagers he played acoustic guitar and sang four songs for an audience who were attending a conference at the Vatican. He thanked Pope Francis and other Vatican officials “for allowing us to use the most beautiful parish hall in the world”. He described Pope Francis as the people’s Pope, “He’s doing an amazing job and long may he continue”

The Gospel today explains how Jesus fired up his followers by telling them that a decision to follow him has no “if’s or but’s”! We are all a valuable part of a community and we need to pull forward like one body to follow in Jesus’ footsteps. Jesus asks for real commitment - he doesn’t say “whenever you think you might follow me, have a go”, Jesus says the time for commitment for stepping up to our faith, is now. It is our baptismal promise to try to share the good news; the love of God the father each day on our ordinary road. If we keep waiting for the right moment, the sands of time will run quickly through our fingers.

The remains of John Curry, youngest witness of the apparition at Knock, buried since 1943 in an unmarked grave on New York’s Long Island, are to be exhumed and re-buried in the cemetery of Manhattan’s St Patrick’s Old Cathedral. Although his grave was unmarked it was possible to identify it from good record-keeping and the burial being in a plot owned by the Little Sisters of the Poor with whom he lived in his final years. John was five years old when he witnessed the 1879 apparition, and settled in the US in 1910. The reinterment is scheduled for next spring. St Patrick’s was felt to be a fitting spot for the burial as Fr Richard Gibbons (Knocks rector) said it was home to one of the city’s oldest cemeteries.

Jesus is the Son of Man, the Messiah, the Christ, the one who has come into this world. He will prove this not just by the great miracles he works, but by his ultimate display of love; his death on the cross, and his resurrection on the 3rd day. The Passion is never out of season. His death is our life, and by believing in him and power of his cross we all have the promise of eternal life, by the forgiveness of our sins. 
Friday 24th June: The Nativity of St John the Baptist… We rejoice at the coming of St John the Baptist, a man of self-denial, integrity of life and purpose and an uncompromising prophetic voice. John means “the Lord of life and purpose”. This feast relates to the summer solstice, when the days begins to grow shorter recalling John’s words “He must increase but I must decrease”

Saints and Sinners: Jesus never shut anyone down or out. Jesus’ ministry included everyone and anyone; saints as well as sinners. He shows us that we must cease to judge and exclude, rather we must accept and include. Jesus shows us that not even the least worthy among us is left out, everyone is welcome in God’s love. How can I show this in my daily routine? Do I give wicked looks? Do I choose only certain people to mix with? Because others may not have the right gear or a cool attitude, do I avoid them? What part of today’s Gospel speaks to my lack of tolerance and superiority complex today?
