Sunday 27th September – the 106th World Day of Migrants and Refugees
The theme chosen by the Holy Father for 2020 is “Forced like Jesus Christ to flee”. In his message the Holy Father says:
‘Displaced people offer us this opportunity to meet the Lord, “even though our eyes find it hard to recognize him: his clothing in tatters, his feet dirty, his face disfigured, his body wounded, his tongue unable to speak our language”.
We are called to respond to this pastoral challenge with … four verbs: welcome, protect, promote and integrate.
To these words, I would now like to add another six pairs of verbs that deal with very practical actions and are linked together in a relationship of cause and effect:
You have to know in order to understand. It is necessary to be close in order to serve.
In order to be reconciled, we need to listen. In order to grow, it is necessary to share.We need to be involved in order to promote It is necessary to cooperate in order to build.’
Next Sunday 4th October – Day for Life: The theme for this year’s Day for Life here in Ireland is “Choose Life”. We as Catholics have a message of hope and a story of love; together we can promote a culture of life. Next Sunday will be a day dedicated to raising awareness about the meaning and value of human life at every stage and in every condition. For more information visit www.councilforlife.ie

We are all reminded of the Catholic tradition of a spiritual communion. When we cannot attend Mass, we can still make an Act of Spiritual Communion, expressing our faith in Christ and in His Presence in the Eucharist, asking Him to unite Himself to us. The basic element of an Act of Spiritual Communion are an Act of Faith; An Act of Love; a desire to receive Christ; and an invitation to Him to come into your heart. Some of the prayers accompanying an Act of Spiritual Communion include ;
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Blessed 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.
We have basic food parcels available for those who may need them at this testing time. If interested please contact 07979 535424 or Fr. Mac Entee on 02882 898641
