NOVEMBER INDULGENCES for the Faithful Departed: At this time of the year, the Church invites us to remember our Faithful Departed and to give them a special share in the prayer of the Church and the Saints. Because of this, particular forms of prayer attract either a 'partial indulgence' (bringing the faithful departed closer to heavenly glory) or a 'plenary indulgence' (bringing on of the faithful departed into the fullness of heavenly glory.)

 

On All Souls' Day visiting a church to pray an Our Father and a Creed carries with it an indulgence.

 

Between 1 November and 8 November, visiting a cemetery to pray for the Faithful Departed carries with it an indulgence.

 

One indulgence can be earned in any given day.

 

For the indulgence to be a Plenary (or Full) indulgence, the following are required.

 

1. To receive Holy Communion within 20 days of the indulgence

 

2. To make a Sacramental Confession within 20 days of the indulgence

 

3. To pray for the intentions of the Holy Father.

THOUGHT: We cannot properly serve unless we are content. Lacking this virtue will make us prone to view situations from the angle of how will this benefit me? Outward actions and words can appear unselfish or even self-denying, but if they are not founded in contentment, they will be fuelled by self-serving motives. -John Bevere.

 

ARDAGH: The present Saint Molua’s Church Ardagh blessed and officially opened  on October 15 1967. Work on the old Saint Molua’s Church started in 1813 after Fr. James Corbett P.P. received a free site from local landlord Maurice Studdert, who also gave a donation of ten pounds towards the cost of the building. It was completed and opened in 1814 and served until the present Church was built.

The veteran patriot, James Kissane, of Moybella, has Just passed away, having attained the extraordinary age of 111 years. During the late Kerry election this old gentleman walked in from his residence to the polling booth at Listowel, a distance of five miles, and record a his vote in favour of the Home-Rule candidate. Besides this daring offender, old Houlihan of Ballydonoghue." and Mrs. Benson, of Listowel, have, it appears, just paid the debt of nature at the age of 104 and 109 years, while Listowel is still enlivened by the presence of old Nancy Trent of Ennismore," who, at the age of 103, walks eight miles to church every Sunday,

Cases of Longevity.

 

Although we cannot claim that the fountain of perpetual youth, which led the chivalrous Ponce de Leon such a disastrous journey through the wilds of the New World, pours forth its perennial stream within the limits of the Golden State yet the climate of California bears an enviable reputation for recuperative powers and a tendency to promote longevity in man. In support of this, two cases of centenarians have lately come under our notice in this city. James Gale, "an aged colored man," reached his one hundred and sixth year on Thursday last. He was a native of Jamaica, West Indies The other is a female who called at the police office yesterday to relate a little grievance she had with her boarding house keeper. In conversation with an officer she gave her name as Mary Hinchy, a native of the county of Limerick, Ireland, and stated her age as 100 years.—S. F. Examiner

A MIRACULOUS APPARITION AT LIMERICK.

 

A Limerick paper gives the following account of the miraculous appearance at the Church of Mount St. Vincent, in the western suburbs of the city.

Sunday Feast of Our Blessed Lady.

 

On the evening of that day the orphans left the convent to play in the grounds in front of the new buildings, and they were told not to be alarmed by the thunder, but to pray to Our Lady of Succour should they be frightened. With whole faith of Our Lady's protection with which the little ones like their elders are possessed, they passed into the grounds and proceeded in their innocent amusements in the usual manner. Soon after the thunder rolled along the sky and the children at once piously offered up their prayers for safety to the Blessed Virgin. Then they raised then

 

voices and sang the touching hymn ' Look down, Mother Mary,' and while the beautiful music of their young fresh voices was ascending, one of the children suddenly called out ' Oh, look there,' and instantly the eyes of 200 others, her companions, were turned towards the belt of trees to the north

 

of the convent, and in the air above them the figure of the Blessed Virgin was beheld by all attired in white robes, with a blue sash around her waist. The infant Saviour was borne on her right arm, and a

 

rosary depended from her left. She seemed to rest on a white cloud, upheld by two angels who carried in their disengaged hands branches of some description covered with foliage; The children were spellbound, and involuntarily offered prayers to the Blessed Virgin. After they had gazed on the vision for about ten minutes some of them ran to the convent to acquaint the nuns, but before

 

the good ladies had arrived at the spot the Divine Apparition had gone, the Virgin disappearing in the heavens. The children were found in a pale, terrified, trembling state, but all tallied in the accounts of what was seen, even to the '(description of the rosary, which they stated was large and white, and the beads of which were far asunder from each other. More startling was it still to find that children distant from them in another part of the premises had also seen the vision. There was no wavering and no contradiction amongst them. Several were from 13 to 14 years of age, and it was impossible not to be convinced of their truthfulness. So much for Sunday evening; but on Monday evening the manifestation was still more decisive.

 

While the children were again at play one of their number called out to look at the Blessed Virgin, and instantly almost fainted. All eyes were directed towards the statue on the top of the building, and above it in the air the children saw the immaculate Mother vested altogether in white, her hands raised as if in the attitude of invoking or expressing a blessing or prayer, her eyes cast down, and a silvery light surrounding the beatific figure. Some of the children again hastened to the convent to communicate what they saw, and one of the nuns who arrived on the spot beheld the Virgin also. The children were unanimous in their descriptions of the strange apparition, and the little one who first saw the vision was absolutely rigid from the astonishment. The other members of the holy community did not see the miraculous spectacle,

THOUGHT: The problem is that if we trust in man we are always let down. No, we shouldn't trust in man-- not ultimately. If we don't trust in man or God, we are in an awful lonely mess, too. You see, if we don't trust anyone, we live in fear, but if we trust in God, then we don't have to fear man anymore. - Stefani Carmichael.

FATIMA Miracle.

 

On October 13, 1917, tens of thousands of people gathered near a small Portuguese village to witness the fulfilment of Our Lady's promise.

 

"More than fifty thousand devout, sceptical, and curious people gathered at the Cova, and those watching from afar, experienced something overwhelmingly miraculous. …

 

First, the rain stopped abruptly, and the sun grew luminously brighter. The sun started to spin and shoot beams of light, causing everything to turn different colours. But it was not a rainbow that people were seeing. The sun increased in size as if it were being hurled towards the earth. People felt sure that there was no escaping death at this point and dropped to their knees praying fervently and crying out to God for forgiveness. Even the sceptical and cynical suddenly found reason to pray."

 

 

 

MISSIONS: The Sacred Heart Review, Volume 43, Number 4, 15 January 1910

 

Correspondence.

 

" The Mission-Spirit in Ireland." Boston, Jan. 2, 1910. Editor Review: — The inference to be drawn from the article "The Mission-Spirit in Ireland" on your Propagation of the Faith page, this week, is that among the Irish of to-day the readiness to seek the distant field (unless to '' follow the Irish") is not so keen as in days gone by. Well, perhaps that's true, Nevertheless I have just been reading in the New Zealand Tablet an account of those missionaries who have died in Africa in recent years, and the number of purely Irish names on the roll is noteworthy. Will you kindly find room, if possible, for the names of these Christian heroes and heroines—these Irish priests and Sisters who have shown that their missionary zeal was no less ardent than that of their illustrious predecessors in the early ages of the Irish Church? Here they are: — Father Dornan, of Belfast, died of fever at Lokoja, on the Niger River, in August, 1886, seven months after his arrival in Africa, and at the age of twenty-eight years. Father O'Carroll, of Cashel, died of fever at Tanta, Egypt, in February, 1881, five months after his arrival in Africa, and at the age of twenty-nine. Father Hennebry, of Ossory, died on board a homeward bound steamer off the West Coast of Africa, July, 1885, seventeen months after his arrival, and at the age of twenty-five years. Father Connaughton, of Westmeath, died at Lagos, West Africa, April, 1887, eighteen months after his arrival, and at the age of thirty-three years. Father Moran, of Tipperary, died in Dahomey, West Africa, August, 1887, three years after his arrival and at the age of thirty-three. Father Downey, of Kilkenny, returned in shattered health from the West Coast, where he had spent four years, and died at Lyons in 1892, at the age of thirty-one. Father Garvey, of Leitrim, died on board a homeward-bound vessel on which he was returning in shattered health in 1896; buried at sea off the West Coast of Africa, aged twenty-five. Father Wade, of Dublin, died of black fever at Salt Pond, in West Africa, in 1898, at the age of thirty-six, ten years after his arrival. Sister Felicite (Miss Kirwan, Dublin), died at Lagos, West Africa, October, 1878, at the age of twenty-two years, six months after her arrival. Sister Cecilius (Miss O'Riordan, Limerick) died at Lagos, West Africa, in 1887, at the age of thirty-one, five years after her arrival. Sister Dominick (Miss O'Riordan, Cork) died at Lagos, West Africa, in 1878, at the age of twenty-three, five months after her arrival. Sister Silvius (Miss Murphy, Cork) died at Porto-Novo, West Africa, in 1888, five years after her arrival, at the age of thirty years. Sister Ignatius (Miss Howard, Bruff) died on the Gold Coast, West Africa, in 1892, nine years after her arrival, at the age of thirty years. Sister Thecla (Miss Moran, Tipperary) died at Porto-Novo, West Africa, in 1892, at the age of twenty-seven, seven years after her arrival in Africa. Sister Lucien (Miss O'Connell, Mayfield, Cork) returned in shattered health from West Africa after a stay of four years; died at Cork of African fever shortly after her return, at the age of twenty-three years. Sister Iphigenie (Miss McEveny, Ballinbough) died at Abeokouta West Africa, in 1894, three years after her arrival, at the age of twenty-three. Sister Jean (Miss K. Howard, Lottera) died at Cape Coast Castle, West Africa, in 1895, at the age of thirty-two, seven years after her arrival. Sister Zenon (Miss A. O'Sullivan, Ireland) died at Cape Coast Castle, West Africa, in 1896, at the age of twenty-seven.

Irish History

 

POLICE PROTECTION NEAR LISTOWEL.

 

HC Deb 19 July 1900 vol 86 cc478-9 478

 

§ MR. FLAVIN

 

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state the number of police employed in protecting the farm in Derry situate near Listowel, the property of John Sands, and whether the police so employed cost the district £160 479 ? per year; and, if not, how much; and whether, having regard to the present condition of the district, the extra police so employed on this farm will be removed.

 

§ MR. G. W. BALFOUR

 

Two constables are employed in protecting the caretaker on the farm referred to. They will be removed when, in the opinion of the authorities locally responsible, the necessity no longer exists for their employment. The men are supplied from the free force of the county, consequently their employment entails no charge whatever either to the district or the county.

 

§ MR. FLAVIN

 

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the whole duty those men have to perform is to arrest the emergency man and charge him with drunkenness?

 

 

 

CELTIC MANUSCRIPTS—SALARY OF IRISH SCRIBE.

 

HC Deb 19 July 1900 vol 86 cc479-80 479

 

§ MR. DILLON (Mayo, E.)

 

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that an annual sum of £200 has been voted from 1865 to 1891 to the Royal Irish Academy as salary to an Irish scribe, including cataloguing and printing Irish manuscripts, and that a like sum has been included in the general grant-in-aid voted to the said Academy between 1892 and 1899; whether the transcription of Celtic manuscripts ceased on the death, in 1880, of Mr.

 

O'Longan, the last of the Irish scribes, whether the copying of Irish manuscripts since 1880 has been by photograph, and whether the photographing of old Irish manuscripts ceased with the completion of the Yellow Book of Leccan in 1895; and, if so, can he say what has been done with the £200 a year voted for Irish scribes since 1880, and the £200 a year for printing Celtic manuscripts since 1893; whether the proceeds of the sale of the four folio volumes facsimiled or photographed at the expense of Parliament have been refunded to Her Majesty's Treasury, or spent on the general purposes of the Royal Irish Academy; and whether, if the Royal Irish Academy be unwilling to publish Celtic manuscripts, he will consider the desirability of transferring the present annual grants for this purpose to some of the other existing antiquarian societies in Ireland.

 

480

 

§ MR. HANBURY

 

The sum of £200 was voted from 1865 to 1870for "Salary of Irish Scribe and for Cataloguing and. Printing Irish Manuscripts," and from l871 to 1890 for "Researches in connection with Celtic Manuscripts." In the Estimates for

 

1890?1 and up to 1896?7 this special item was merged in a grant of £400 for "Researches into and publication of Celtic Manuscripts." Since 1897?8 the grant to the Academy has been voted as a lump sum, but the Academy have from year to year allocated a similar amount to such researches. Since the death of Mr. O'Longan in 1880 the manuscripts have been reproduced by photo-lithography, and the last one published was the Yellow Book of Leccan in 1895. The proceeds of the facsimiles published by the Academy have never been refunded to the Treasury. The receipts from the five volumes of "Facsimiles of National Manuscripts of Ireland," published by the Stationery Office, were, of course, paid into the Exchequer. The Academy is anxious to continue the publication of Celtic MSS. But it has full discretion as to the disposal of its grant-in-aid, and recently it has devoted its income mainly to collecting material, for a Thesaurus of the Irish language, which will be a most important aid to the study of the texts themselves.

 

§ MR. DILLON

 

What are the researches to which this sum has been, devoted during the last few years?

 

§ MR. HANBURY

 

To the preparation, of a dictionary of the Irish language.

 

§ MR. DILLON

 

Will that dictionary-be published before the end of next, century?

The Sacred Heart Review, Volume 39, Number 22, 23 May 1908

 

Who would have thought, writes Dr. J. C. McWalter in the Dublin Leader, that, in the seventeenth century, a Catholic Kerryman could have become a Professor at Oxford and Cambridge, a Fellow of the Royal Society, and Chief Physician to the King of Poland  Yet, this is the true romantic history of Bernard Connor (1666-1698), as told in the lately published and fascinating history of Dr. John Knott—himself one of the few survivors of that series of scholarly physicians who made the Dublin school famous. Now, that the question of Universities is in the air, it is of added interest to hear the sympathetic account of a cultured Protestant like Dr. Knott of his hero, of whom he says that—" being of the Popish religion, he was not educated regularly in the grammar schools and university of that island ; nevertheless, he had all proper learning given him"; and who managed to find his way to the University of Montpellier at the age of twenty, where he passed through a brilliant medical curriculum ; thence, to Rheims, where he graduated as Doctor of Physic ; thence to Paris, where he rapidly distinguished himself in the practise of the profession of his choice; more below.

St. Patrick’s Day in Paris. THE DESCENDANTS OF THE IRISH BRIGADES.

 

Pilot, Volume 37, Number 16, 18 April 1874

 

Paris, March 18, 1871. If anything were necessary to prove how lasting the love of country is in the human heart, the fact that centuries after their fathers had left their country, men of Irish descent still meet and celebrate the national fete in foreign lands which have been their homes since their birth, would remove all doubt on the subject. For the last century, at least, these dinners, though sometimes interrupted by great events, have taken place in the French capital. The one of yesterday is the last celebrated by those anciens Irlandais , and was not the least interesting of them. A few years ago the number of those present was larger; for death has swept away many of the former guests. Count O’Donnell, Councillor of State, Count August Dillon, Mr. MacCartan, Rev. Mr. O’Donnell, Rev. Mr. MacArdle, Lieut. MacDermott, etc., are no more, and war has thinned the little bataillon sacre. Age, too, and illness, or some unexpected obstacle or important business, kept a few away from their countrymen, and letters expressing regret at not being able to assist at the dinner were received from the following worthy descendants of heroic ancestors.

The Sacred Heart Review, Volume 1, Number 16, 20 April 1895

 

GRIFFIN: "Our Irish Letter" asks for a short sketch of Gerald Griffin, a request with which the writer is but too happy to comply. He was born in Limerick, Dec. 10, 1803, where his father had a large brewery, but the business not being a successful venture the family moved to Fairy Lawn near Glin, some thirty miles from the city of the Violated Treaty, and after a few years residence, the parents finally emigrated to America. Gerald, however, who was intended for the medical profession, remained with his brother Doctor Griffin who lived at Adare. His two sisters also remained in Ireland and in company with them he spent much of his time in rambling through the demesne of Lord Dunraven— fishing in the Magne, or watching its waters glide whisperingly along by the time-worn walls of the old castles and romantic ruins of that historic locality. Poetry was his first and greatest inspiration, (See more below)

FUNDS: Mr. Justin McCarthy the Irish Parliamentary Fund is rapidly swelling to respectable dimensions, so quickly indeed, as to remind one of the good old Land League days when the Irish representatives were a unit fighting for the sturdy Irish farmers against their heartless landlords and rack rents. The following list of subscriptions to the fund has been published by its trustees

THOUGHT: Admonished for his lack of familiarity with twentieth-century science, Sundar Singh said, "What is science?" "Natural selection and survival of the fittest," he was told. "Ah," Sundar Singh replied, "but I am more interested in divine selection and the survival of the unfit." Sadhu Sundar Singh.

 

WORMS: Long ignored and dismissed as unscientific and crude, are intestinal worms destined to be the future of autoimmune disease treatments? Hookworms. Intestinal parasites. They sound gross. The thought of having one's gut infected with a parasitic worm generally makes people's skin crawl. Indeed, intestinal worms, like hookworm, have a bad reputation among health experts, and have been the subject of fierce public health campaigns seeking their eradication. However, researchers have also documented the gut healing abilities of parasites like hookworm.

IRELAND AND LATIN AMERICA

 

A CULTURAL HISTORY CHAPTER 127

 

London (Colindale newspapers section), the U.S. Library of the Congress, Harvard, and other

 

universities associated with the Centre for Research Libraries. Initially designed as a weekly complement to the Standard, the Southern Cross was founded in 1875 by Patrick Joseph Dillon (1842-1889), a controversial Catholic priest who arrived in 1863 in Argentina to serve as the Irish chaplain in the southern districts of Buenos Aires province and the Falkland Islands. With an interest on the support that could be obtained from the landed elite of the Irish community, Fr. Dillon was an influential figure in its internal politics and later in the province of Buenos Aires and the country. Representing a group of conservative Irish and Irish-Argentine landowners, in 1880 Patrick J. Dillon was elected MP in Buenos Aires, and in 1883 senator to the national parliament. He launched the Southern Cross“to supply the want of an Irish and Catholic organ in the country” (circular of November 1874, in Marsha

 

ll 1996: 13). Succeeding editors Michael Dinneen and William Bulfin imprinted a strong nationalist character to the Southern Cross, and since the editorship of Miguel Quinn –the first Argentine

 

-born editor –the paper has been exclusively aimed at Irish and other Catholics. The Southern Cross continues to be published as a monthly bulletin addressed to the Irish community in South America. Its contents are eminently Catholic and Irish, with news from Ireland and Australia. In the offices in Buenos Aires there is a complete collection, and certain periods can be consulted in microfilm in Harvard and other universities in the U.S. and Ireland.

THOUGHT: I refuse to allow the bullies of my past or the bullies of today to stop me from voicing my opinion with grace and tactfulness and sharing my faith with love and respect. Like the lone brave man who stood before hundreds of tanks on Tiananmen Square, I will stand firm for freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and the freedom to speak my mind. I will hold firm, and I will not surrender to the bullies of political correctness, news agencies with political agendas, and those who consider me their enemy just because I disagree with their beliefs.

PAPERS: Saline Observer, 2 October 1947

 

As top government officials in Washington prepared information on the food price situation for President Truman's study, upon his arrival home last weekend from his, South American trip, costs of some food items in several cities made new advances. In three of the country’s major cities—New York, Chicago and Washington—officials planned or studied proposals to inaugurate meatless days in an attempt to curb the skyrocketing prices. Urge Meatless Days In the nations, capital the District of Columbia commissioners urged residents to observe voluntarily two meatless days a week. There were similar plans proposed in New York, affecting hotels and restaurants. Chicago’s Mayor Martin H. Kennelly was to confer with food industry leaders to discuss ways to combat the rising food prices, including the possibility of starting voluntary meatless days. Note the Mayors ancestors are believed to be from Ballylongford.

 

 

 

Clare Sentinel (1892), 20 July 1894

 

Niagara’s Water ‘Power. A lively discussion is going on among electricians on the subject of the long distance transmission of Niagara water power. Early in May there appeared in a leading electrical journal an article in which Prof. E. J. Houston and Mr. A. E. Kennelly went elaborately into the question of how far the water power of the falls could be transmitted by electricity. The gist of their contention was that the power of Niagara Falls can be transmitted to a radius of 200 miles cheaper than it can he produced at any point within that range by steam engines of the most economical type, with coal at $3 per-ton; furthermore that “given a sufficiently large output, it might be commercially advisable to undersell large steam powers at twice this distance with no profit, in order to reduce the general expense upon delivery nearer home.” The article attracted wide attention not only among electrical engineers, but also in lay circles, and was promptly noticed by newspapers throughout the country. Dr. G. E. Emery, an eminent engineer replied to the article by a series of figures and statistics which went to show that Messrs. Houston and Kennelly had overestimated some of the points on which their conclusions were based, and underestimated others. For instance, the Houston-Kennelly estimate regarding the cost of the hydraulic works is $17.60 per horse power, as against Dr: Emery’s $140 per horse power. The former quotes Prof. Forbes, the electrical engineer of the Cataract Company, as testifying that “there can be little doubt that the efficiency • of our dynamos .may reach, at least, 98 per cent,”

ENGLISH EXTRACTS.( Fight Ballyeigh).

 

Expecting a fight to take place between the Lawlor’s and the Cooleen’s at the fair of Ballyeagh, on

 

the 24th of June last, he went there with a party of sixty soldiers and twelve policemen. The Lawlor’s

 

were collected behind the tents, to the number of 200, with sticks. During the races all was quiet,

 

the Lawlors having undisputed possession of the ground; but at half-past three, he heard a cry of

 

‘”They are coming,” and saw the Cooleens approaching from the Listowel side. They had crossed from Clanmaurice by the new ferry, and came on in full array in their shirt sleeves, and brandishing their sticks. There could not be less than a thousand of them; and they were accompanied by about twenty women. The latter were for the purpose of carrying a supply of stones, which they brought in their aprons, as the place was a smooth strand and unprovided with that kind of ammunition. The Lawlor’s were more numerous than the Cooleen’s; but the latter had the advantage as long as their supply of stones lasted. They pursued the Lawlor’s among the tents. Witness finding his efforts to make sense quite ineffectual, rode off for the soldiers, with whom he returned towards the tents, and took several prisoners. The fight lasted two hours. Saw several people beaten severely. One man had his leg broken, and another lost an eye. The Lawler’s were finally victorious; and the Cooleen’s retreated in two bodies, one towards Rahoona, and the other to the Cashin River. They rushed in great numbers into one of the boats, which, owing to that circumstance, was upset. Witness heard a cry that people were drowning, and hastened to the place. The river was about

 

a quarter of a mile across. The shrieks of the people were heart rending. The boat had sunk; hats

 

and sticks were floating in all directions. Saw three or four men struggling for life on the Kilmore side

 

(the side to which the Cooloens had wished to cross). Several persons went into the water with horses to render assistance. When he came up, he heard persons exclaim that the people had been stoned, and prevented from landing. Mr. Hewson stated, that these factions have existed upwards of thirty years; and that he does not remember any year that a fight has not taken place between them at the races of Ballyeagh on the 24th of June. The people were determined, and would not be prevented. The great exciting cause of these fights, he said, is the pure love of fighting for its own sake.

SPORTING INTELLIGENCE- LISTOWEL Races October 6th and 7th 1863

 

Stewards—Earl of Listowel; Robert C. Hurley, Leslie Wren, George Sandes, Wm. C. Hickie, James D. Supple, and Henry M. Sandes, Esqrs. Clerk of the Course—Gerald M'Elligott.

 

These sporting events came off over a course all grass land, close to the town. The racing was good, but, as will be seen by the subjoined return, the fields were small. In the first heat for the Listowel Stakes, Rudiments just won by a neck, but unfortunately in the second go was put hors de combat by an accident referred to below. The attendance was very large, and most orderly, but the inclement state of the weather sadly interfered with the sport. On future occasion we would suggest to the stewards and parties connected with getting up the meeting the propriety of holding it at an earlier period of the year. The following is a return of the day's running :—

WATER being cut from us, helped to reflect on the time when the older generation were always drawing water from well, stream of had barrel under down pipe. Just in case there is another breakdown in supply, it would be useful if we were reminded of the many springs in the locality and also many have their own supply and would share their neighbours in an emergency. I am told some used bottled water to flush their toilet, even though, there plenty was falling from the sky.

DEVOTIONS OF THE QUARANT ORE AT LISTOWEL.

 

Listowel, Wednesday.—This beautiful and edifying form of devotion was opened today in the exquisite chapel of the Presentation Convent in this town. The Rev. A. Moynhan acted as celebrant at the solemn High Mass, assisted by Fathers Crimin and Gooly as deacons, while Father Foraun acted as master of ceremonies.  There was a large number of the clergy and laity of the district present. After High Mass a procession of the clergy, members of the Confraternity, the nuns and children of the schools marched around the Convent gardens. There was a new feature observable in the procession, this time, in the shape of exquisite banners, with sacred mottoes, while the music and singing were more than usually impressive and effective. The decorations of the chapel, as well as the order of the procession, reflected the highest credit on those who had charge of the arrangements.—Correspondent.

PADIHAM : PRESENTATION TO FATHER DALY.—Father Mortimer Daly, assistant priest at St. John's, Padiham, was presented with a gold watch on the 17th inst., by the Men's Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament, of which he is the director. The presentation, which, besides being a recognition of what Father Daly has done for the men and boys of the parish since his advent among them, was also intended to mark his recent birthday, took place in the schoolroom. Father A. M. Van Tomme, in making the presentation, paid tribute to the work which Father Daly had accomplished for the social and spiritual welfare of the men and boys. He wished Father Daly many happy years to continue the good work he was doing at St. John's. Father Daly said, though the watch was valuable to him, still more valuable were the good will and kindly feelings of the parishioners.

LISTOWEL LAND LEAGUE.( Snippets from meeting)

 

 The Rev. Arthur Moynihan, Adm. Listowel League, presided.

 

Regret at change of Head Constable Bloomer, he was zealous and less liable to err.

 

The attack by magistrates, that drunkenness was on the increase is false.

 

The Rev M 0'Connor, P P, who was cordially received, proposed the first resolution—"That this meeting records its emphatic condemnation of the practice on certain estates of serving writs from the superior courts for the recovery of rent by which the tenants already over burdened are involved in heavy and to many of them ruinous costs. In addressing an assemblage of North Kerry men it is hardly necessary to refer to the difficulties and struggles which the farmers of the country, had to encounter for the past four years. Those trials were due in some degree to the visitation of Providence, but they were mainly the result of rack rent and insecurity of tenure as regards the land”. In Kerry as in other places many landlords, instead of sympathising with their tenants in their present crisis, only add to their burdens by involving them in expensive processes of law.

 

Mentioned were Fosberry county surveyor of the County of Limerick and Mr Gun Mahony, of Kilmorna. Who is so inaccessible to his tenants as the Man in the moon.

 

A respectable farmer who was worth £800 or £1,000 in hard cash, his rent raised and now unable to meet his ordinary demands.

 

Poor Jeremiah Mulvihill an occupant on this estate, his cattle sold, the bill of costs amounted to £30.

 

A resolution was passed urging farmers not to send cattle to graze on lands held by landlords, or purchase meadowing from them.

FROM FR KEVIN: LOST THE CASE………………..BUT WON THE WAR

 

As you are well aware by now I lost the case with regards my complaint about the Late Late Show, however, I am delighted that the BAI made the following observation about how the presenter handled the item.  A quote from the findings:  “It was the Committee’s view that the presenter misjudged the offence likely to have been caused by the use of the term ‘haunted bread’ and that his comments compounded the offence caused to the complainant.  While the Committee did not believe that the comments or the presenter’s contributions crossed a line such that undue offence was caused to the audience as a whole, the degree of offence may have been minimised if the presenter had demonstrated greater sensitivity to the potential for offence and RTÉ is advised to have regard to the Committee’s view in this regard”. I am delighted now that the case is closed and also I am looking forward to RTÉ and in particular its presenters to take on board what the BAI has suggested.   I feel as a result of this deliberation the Catholic faith and indeed all faiths will be more respected in RTÉ programmes from here on.

MR. PARNELL AT KILMORNA STATION.

 

(From a Correspondent.) At Kilmorna on Sunday evening, in addition to the splendid greeting at Listowel, an enthusiastic reception awaited Mr. Parnell at Kilmorna, headed by a torchlight procession. Mr Parnell seemed greatly pleased at the spontaneous expression of confidence, and promised to address them at greater length when he returns at the Easter Recess to be the guest of Mr. Pierce Mahony, when he will take the opportunity of penetrating further throughout the district. The accompanying address was presented to him on behalf of Kilmorna and its neighbourhood:— Kilmorna, January 18th, 1891.

 

TO CHARLES STEWART PARNELL.

 

SIR,—We, the undersigned, wish to convey, to you, on behalf of Kilmorna and our surrounding districts, our unswerving fidelity and continued confidence in you as leader of the Irish people. We rely on you and William O'Brien to help on the policy of reconciliation knowing that you are both devoted heart and soul to the true welfare of Ireland. In conclusion, we would thank Mr. Pierce  Mahony, M.P., for having so faithfully expressed our feelings and wishes in his speech of yesterday, and we trust that at no distant date we shall have an opportunity of again assembling  in our thousands to give you a right hearty welcome to North Kerry. (Signed),

KILMORNA HERD OF KERRIES

 

Mr. Pierce Mahony, of Kilmorna, North Kerry, is offering for sale by private treaty the whole of his famous herd of Kerry cattle, with the exception of some yearling heifers and calves, this affords a rare opportunity to any who may wish to form a herd or possess exceptionally  good specimens of our native breed;  for we. Are safe in saying that such a highly bred herd of Kerries is not to be found elsewhere, not only are all the animals now offered entered or eligible for entry, in the Kerry Herd Book, but many of them are descendants of cows that were highly esteemed for their characteristic shapes and good milking qualities, long before the herd book was thought of.

 

 The herd was founded in 1882, and the object kept steadily in view ever since have been purity of blood combined with true form and colour, and the development of milking properties. That these objects have been attained, the prizes awarded to representatives of the herd and the prices obtained for many of them fully testify. We  cannot in this notice afford space for enumeration of the prizes won since  1882, even in a condensed form, they fill three pages of the  catalogue ; suffice it to say that every year from 1883 to 1890, inclusive, numerous prizes (many of them "Firsts ") were gained at shows of the old Royal Agricultural  Society of Ireland and of the Royal Dublin Society, gold medals in London and in Paris in 1888 and 1889), and (a most remarkable  achievement ) a second prize in each of the three classes bulls, cows, and heifers at the jubilee show of the Royal Agricultural Society of England. In 1891-2-3 Mr Mahony did not exhibit; but at the last spring show at Ballsbridge he obtained several prizes and commendations for bulls and heifers.

 

The catalogue contains the pedigrees and prices of nine bulls, one and two years old, and of seventeen cows and heifers, varying in age from two to ten years, very few, however, being more than five or six years old.

THE KNOCKANURE CHURCH

 

Interesting Religious Ceremony; On Thursday, the 17th inst., the parish  church of Knockanure was the scene of a magnificent  spectacle long to be remembered by those favoured as participators at the solemn ceremony of seeing blessed and erected for their benefit the Stations of the Cross. From an early hour the parishioners may be seen making their way from the different directions; all anxious to have a place secured at the appointed hour, the old and infirm longing for the youth and agility of manhood, to enable, them to move in pace with their mental anxiety, the youths of tender years of both sexes eager to witness the greatest sight of their young lives, the solemn act of consecrating to God the fruits of their generous donations. What pardonable joy wells up in their young hearts at the thought of duty nobly done, in response to the earnest appeal of their good pastor! Though the Church has been built 45 years, little could since be done in the way of improvements owing to the poverty of the people, but on their release from the shackles landlordism a new spirit was born among them, which enabled Fr. Garvey to give his flock a renovated church, where the religiously disposed can now commune in peace with God. As the eye of the good Shepherd is ever watchful for succulent  herbage to nourish his flock, so Fr. Garvey saw how barren was the inside of this little church; and how little the devotional instincts of the congregation were excited by their surroundings, he at once took steps to have this want supplied. Placing the matter before his parishioners who entered into the spirit of the project, he commended them to God's guidance. There is a guiding star whose secret influence acts as a talisman wherever good work needs a helper, and this most meritorious work had a quiet gently moving, but brilliant luminary in the person of Fr. Lyne, C.C. to mention his name in any laudatory manner is to incur his displeasure; but as I write incognito, I think it but just to say that the success of any undertaking is assured in which he is interested. Fr. Lyne. C.C. called a meeting of the ladies of the parish, and well the result proved the foresight of his arrangement, for the gold and silver stream that poured in guaranteed the erection of three stained glass windows over the High Altar—Jesus in the centre, Mary to His right, and Joseph to his left , recalling to the minds , of the penitent devotees, the pious ejaculation, "Jesus, Mary and Joseph, we give, you our hearts and our souls."

 

John Keane. who left his native parish when, a boy and spent 44 years beneath the Southern Cross, returned blessed with health, wealth and religious fervour, anxious to participate in the good work in thankfulness for God's providence in his undertakings, erected a stained-glass window at the eastern or Gospel side of the altar bearing the image of St. Patrick, whose faith he cherished in his darkest hour, and which was ever to him a beacon of hope.

 

The young men of the parish volunteered most generously to follow the example set them by their lady relatives, and erected a stained-glass window at the Epistle, side of the altar, bearing the image of St. Brigid —The Mary of Ireland. Two other stained-glass windows—plain, one on either side, have also been erected. The windows are beautiful specimens of artistic workmanship, executed and erected by an Irish firm, Messrs. Clarke and Co., Dublin, showing what can be done by Irish brains, fostered and encouraged by Irish patronage.  The inside of the walls has been newly painted, the shades of which blending with the reflection from the windows, produce a sombre light which helps to excite feelings of veneration unknown before.  Another generous donor hearing of the improvements to be effected in his native parish church, wished to testify his love for Gods- kindness to him, and affection for his deceased parents and brothers, by offering to erect- subject to Fr. Garvey's approval the Stations of the Cross. Needless to say, the offer was as freely accepted as it was generously made. To this gentleman. Mr. Wm Leahy, a thriving merchant in the town of Listowel; is due the credit of bringing to a worthy completion the anxious labours of Fr. Garvey, who has had the satisfaction  of giving to his flock a church worthy of him and a credit to themselves. To bless and indulgence these Stations of the Cross, Fr. Alphonsus, O.S.F., travelled specially from Killarney, arriving in the village at-1.30 amid a downpour of sleet which fell at intervals all the morning. Immediately he ascended the altar and selected as the subject of his discourse, "If you wish to have life everlasting in you. you must take up My Cross and follow Me." He eloquently pointed out what the Stations were —resting spots in our Lord's way to Calvary, all sanctified by the sacred blood of Our Lord, that they are indulgenced for the souls in Purgatory and placed before the congregation the necessity of being faithful to deceased friends—how the Stations can be made a source of grace, and impressed most forcibly devotions to them. He next proceeded to bless the Stations, after which Fr. Garvey and Fr. Lyne assisted in their erection. Fr. Alphonsus next returned thinks to the good pastors who assisted him after which the proceedings terminated with six Our Fathers and six Hail Marys.

OBSEQUIES OF THE LATE REV. P. GARVEY, P.P. Newtownsandes.

 

The obsequies of the late Rev. P Garvey, P.P., Newtownsandes, took place on Wednesday. There was a large attendance of priests and notwithstanding that the day was inclement, and that it was a fair day in Listowel, there was a big and representative attendance of the general public. Father Garvey's record, both as a zealous priest and a splendid Irishman, was widely known, and it is therefore, only natural that the expressions of regret at his demise should have been so sincere and so general. Office and High Mass commenced in the Newtownsandes Church at 11 o'clock a m., the Very Rev. A. Canon Murphy, P.P., V.F., Brosna, presiding. The choir consisted of the following clergymen—Very Rev. P. Marshall, President St. Brendan's Seminary, Killarney; Very Rev. P. Canon Hayes. P.P., V.F., Ballylongford ; Rev M. O'Flaherty, C.C., Brosna; Rev. T. O'Flaherty, C.C, Newtownsandes; Rev. M O'Brien, Rev. P. Breen, C.C, Tralee; Rev P. J. Breen , C.C, Kenmare; Rev. D. O'Sullivan, CC., Milltown. The celebrant of the High Mass was Rev James O'Sullivan, PP., Fossa; deacon, Rev.  M. D.

THOUGHT: How do we get rid of darkness? By rebuking it? By seeking to rid our environments of it? No. The answer to stopping darkness is to bring light into the situation. Darkness cannot stay if light comes. The question is not “How do we remove the darkness?” It is “How can I turn the light on in this situation? --Steve Backlund.

 

GOLDEN Jubilee of Moyvane Church; Homily by Fr. Pat Ahern, September 30th, 2006

 

I’m wondering how many of you here this evening were here on August 26th 1956, when this church was opened and blessed by the late Bishop Denis Moynihan. I suspect not all that many. Fifty years is a long time. Half a century. Many, many changes. Many people no longer with us.

 

I was still a student at the time – in Maynooth. A year later I said my first Mass here, said it in Latin with my back to the people; for that was the way Mass was said here during the first seven or eight years of the life of this Church.

 

I remember the opening day well. I remember coming to the village the evening before – came in for choir practice with the local choir. The whole village was alive with activity, last minute preparations. People painting, cleaning windows, people on ladders putting up bunting, hanging flags on telegraph poles. One sensed an air of great expectation and excitement.

 

I have a memory of the Mass next day, of the then P.P. Fr. Danny O’Sullivan, who was then in failing health. He was in a wheelchair seated here in the Sanctuary. And a proud man he was. His dream was now a reality.

 

Apparently he hadn’t seen the church until it was finished. When he was wheeled in here a few days before the opening, word is that he was dumbfounded – speechless. He had no idea the Church would be so high and so spacious. At a reception for guests after the opening Mass he made a speech, during which he said “Exegi monumentum aëre perennius” “I have raised up a monument more lasting than bronze” He liked to draw attention to certain features of the Church. One was the rose window at the back. That was a great curiosity; no one had ever seen a rose window in these parts before. Another feature was the spire – which people at the time were disappointed in, far too small, it was felt, out of proportion, considering the great height and bulk of the building. But of course it wasn’t a spire at all! – as Fr. Dan was at pains to point out. It was, he used to insist a fleche, FLÈCHE…French for an arrow. (so we mustn’t be calling it a spire!) Anyway the poor man didn’t enjoy his monument for very long, because he died just five weeks after the Church was opened. His Anniversary was last Thursday. We remember him fondly and pray for the repose of his soul. (Just a snippet of Fr Ahern’s talk)

 

 

 

Mothers Letter.

 

 

 

On your 40th Birthday 1999.

 

Dear Daughter.

 

 

 

In September 1953, with no portfolios of interviews but with God’s grace and blessing, Dad and I together procured the most rewarding prestigious profession, that of starting with the first step up of the fourteen step ladder of life, eight female and six male steps. There is a saying “Life is not a bed of roses” there were a few thorns but don’t we all need a little pinch sometimes to urge us on.

 

While climbing that ladder, there was always joy, merriment, happiness and love galore.

 

We found you on the 7th step with the same joy as the previous and following ones. Each finding was a miracle, to stay awake at night waiting and listening for every breath was like watching the stars.

 

On the 13th step God decide that that little one was not for this world and in his mercy took him back again, that was around my 40th birthday. In March 1975 we reached the top step.

 

At the summet now for quite a few years we feel like shouting to the world with jubilation. Every one of you have made us proud, if we had to relive our lives we would have fourteen more if they were all like you lot.

 

The pinch of the thorn in your case was the Dad and I took you by the little 4 year old hands; you dressed in a little check suit and hat to match and walked you into hospital, Dad and I having tuberculosis and you having contacted it too. That sting didn’t last long because on our first visit you were so full of fun, jumping on the bed, almost hitting the ceiling with your newfound first boyfriend, we knew you were cured already and so cured us.

 

When household chores were a must you always played your part. Your favourite chore was keeping a blazing welcoming fire, how you managed it back ways I still can’t figure out. Of course you had a fascination for heat, you managed to get the Renault radiator to boil at Moll’s Gap and got your siblings to draw the water with their shoes. On a boat trip to England you did some stoking too or so I’m told. We could write a library full of books in praise our family, but who would read them. Everybody knows we are cute movers when it comes to choosing partners too.

THOUGHT: One of the most difficult defilements of the spirit to deal with is the critical spirit. A critical spirit has its root in pride. Because of the 'plank' of pride in our own eye, we are not capable of dealing with the 'speck' of need in someone else. We are often like the Pharisee who, completely unconscious of his own need, prayed "God, I thank you that I am not like other men" (Luke 18:11). We are quick to see - and to speak of - the faults of others, but slow to see our own needs. How sweetly we relish the opportunity to speak critically of someone else - even when we are unsure of the facts. We forget that "A man who stirs up dissension among brothers" by criticising one to another is one of the "six things which the Lord hates" (Proverbs 6:16-19) --Jerry Bridges.

 

NOTE from Tom Aherne; A memorial plaque to commemorate the Sheehy brothers erected at the Broadford Community Enterprise Centre was unveiled on Sunday July 16 at 2pm. The unveiling  performed by their relative Dr. Micheline Sheehy Skeffington. This July is the 100th anniversary of the death of Fr. Eugene Sheehy, the Broadford born priest who became known the length and breadth of the country and further afield as the Land League Priest and Champion of the Tenant Farmer and Agriculture Labourers. Fr. Eugene served as Curate in Kilmallock from 1876 to 1884 and he was appointed Administrator and afterwards Parish Priest of Rockhill/Bruree from 1884 to 1909. David Sheehy who was married to Elizabeth (Bessie) McCoy of Curramore House Ballyhahill, was the Irish Parliamentary Party M.P. for South Galway from 1885 to 1900 and M.P. for South Meath from 1903 to 1918
