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

STEVE JOBS: The last words of Steve Jobs -

 

I have come to the pinnacle of success in business.

 

In the eyes of others, my life has been the symbol of success.

 

However, apart from work, I have little joy. Finally, my wealth is simply a fact to which I am accustomed.

 

At this time, lying on the hospital bed and remembering all my life, I realize that all the accolades and riches of which I was once so proud, have become insignificant with my imminent death.

 

In the dark, when I look at green lights, of the equipment for artificial respiration and feel the buzz of their mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of my approaching death looming over me.

 

Only now do I understand that once you accumulate enough money for the rest of your life, you have to pursue objectives that are not related to wealth.

 

It should be something more important:

 

For example, stories of love, art, dreams of my childhood.

 

No, stop pursuing wealth, it can only make a person into a twisted being, just like me.

 

God has made us one way, we can feel the love in the heart of each of us, and not illusions built by fame or money, like I made in my life, I cannot take them with me.

 

I can only take with me the memories that were strengthened by love.

 

This is the true wealth that will follow you; will accompany you, he will give strength and light to go ahead.

 

Love can travel thousands of miles and so life has no limits. Move to where you want to go. Strive to reach the goals you want to achieve. Everything is in your heart and in your hands.

 

What is the world's most expensive bed? The hospital bed.

 

You, if you have money, you can hire someone to drive your car, but you cannot hire someone to take your illness that is killing you.

 

Material things lost can be found. But one thing you can never find when you lose: life.

 

Whatever stage of life where we are right now, at the end we will have to face the day when the curtain falls.

 

Please treasure your family love, love for your spouse, love for your friends...

 

Treat everyone well and stay friendly with your neighbours.

THOUGHT: The brave who focus on all things good and all things beautiful and all things true, even in the small, who give thanks for it and discover joy even in the here and now, they are the change agents who bring fullest Light to all the world. --Ann Voskamp.

 

Another view: Any time you find yourself worrying about anything, or upset because someone has dishonoured or betrayed you, it is only because you have placed your faith in something other than Jesus. As such, you have lost your faith in Him and instead put it in something or someone else. --Ted Dekker.

 

ROY BUCKLEY, many were wondering who Roy Buckley was at the Moyvane concert recently.

 

Roy Buckley is a singer, songwriter, musician, recording artist, Guinness World Record breaker and founder of The Song Collector Sessions from Cork City, Ireland. His music has been described as passionate and real by his peers, and he creates an indelible atmosphere with his audience through his unique voice and folk sound.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD, together with Minister with Responsibility for Defence Paul Kehoe TD, Honour the Courageous Actions of Irish Soldiers at the Battle of Jadotville in September 1961 with the Award of a Medal

 

 

 

The Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD, together with Minister with Responsibility for Defence, Paul Kehoe TD, have today decided to award a medal to the men of “A” Company, 35thInfantry Battalion and the next of kin of deceased members, to give full and due recognition in honour of their courageous actions at the Battle of Jadotville in September 1961.

 

 

 

Speaking of the decision, the Taoiseach said “I am very pleased to announce this decision to award medals to the men of “A” Company. This fully recognises their bravery and courage during the unique circumstances of the Siege of Jadotville. The UN peacekeeping operation in the Congo was the first time the UN deployed a significant military force and it was also one of Ireland’s earliest UN peacekeeping operations. I want to take the opportunity to also recall the contribution of all the members of the Defence Forces who served over the course of this Mission.”

 

 

 

Minister Kehoe said “The Siege of Jadotville is burned into the memory of so many Irish people who followed the events through the newspapers of the time. One of the first decisions which I made on my appointment to Office was to honour the men of “A” Company by presenting a Unit Citation in recognition of their collective actions at the Siege. The decision taken today to also honour these men with a medal is an exceptional step which builds upon last year’s ceremony and gives full recognition to their performance at the Siege.”

 

Minister Kehoe added “I would also like to commend the men and women of our Defence Forces who are currently deployed in many missions in the cause of peace. Their continued participation in United Nations missions illustrates the very positive difference that small countries, like Ireland, can make in the world’s trouble spots. Their dedication and the sacrifices which they are making, together with that of their families, is always to the forefront of my mind.”

 

The Department of Defence and the Military Authorities will work together to make the arrangements for the awarding of these medals. Given the process required, this will take some time.

Note for the Editors

 

The siege of Jadotville was an event that occurred during Ireland’s peacekeeping mission in the Congo in September 1961. ‘A’ Company of the 35th Infantry Battalion took responsibility for the UN post at Jadotville on the 3rd of September. On the 9th of September they were surrounded by a large force of Katangese Gendarmerie and early on the morning of the 13thSeptember the Company came under attack. Over the coming days until 17thSeptember they endured almost continuous attacks from ground and air.

 

Despite their courageous resistance and the sustained efforts of 35 Infantry Battalion HQ to provide assistance, ‘A’ Company was taken into captivityon 17thSeptember. By this time ‘A’ Company had no water and several men had been wounded. ‘A’ Company remained in captivity until finally released on 25th October 1961.

 

The United Nations Operation in Congo was the first peacekeeping mission in which significant numbers of Irish soldiers took part. A total of 6,000 Irish soldiers served in the Congo from 1960 until 1964.

LEFT: But recent months have spoiled the humour. Between the relentless efforts by Deep State actors to sabotage a presidency, and the rising frenzy of hatred that has burst forth from the left, one thing is clear. We’ve stumbled from farce to the blackest kind of satire, the kind that bleeds over sometimes into the tragic. We’re not living out Idiocracy. Instead we’re re-enacting Dostoevsky’s The Possessed.

TOILETS: New York City Has Taken 7.5 Years and $2 Million to Build a 400-Square-Foot Public Bathroom

 

 

 

In total, the project has taken seven and a half years so far, with each square foot costing around $5,000.

 

 

 

Crazy public bathroom prices aren’t uncommon in New York City.  In February 2014, the New York Daily News reported on a 1,225 square-foot bathroom at a playground in Sheepshead Bay that cost $2.6 million. (From News report)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LONGEST DAY: The following description is edited from a piece written in 1943 by an old schoolmaster who lived in West Limerick:

 

 

 

…old people of thirty years ago and more remembered how the fire used to be lit exactly at sunset and had to be watched and tended until long after midnight. Prayers use to be said to obtain God’s blessing on the crops, then at the peak-point of summer bloom.

STEPHEN STACK – P.R. FOR THE PHIL COULTER CONCERT: Stephen Stack volunteered to do P.R. for the Phil Coulter concert. He did an excellent job. Well done Stephen! He writes: Good people of Moyvane Parish you did yourself proud last night. It shows what a small North Kerry community can do when its joins forces and works together. I, as the PR person would like to thank a number of people. Our Parish Priest Fr. Kevin, Parish Secretary Jackie, PPC Chairperson Amanda and the Pastoral and Finance Council and the huge number of volunteers for their help and support. Thanks to the following journalists Donal Nolan, Michelle Crean, Marisa Reidy, Denis Walsh, Jerry O'Sullivan and Marian O'Flaherty who helped in the pre-concert promotion. A special word of thanks to Phil Coulter's PA Moira who made it possible for me to set up a pre-concert interview on local radio from Spain. To local photographers John Kelliher, Tom Fitzgerald and Liz Brosnan for their great work on the night.

 

To Moyvane as a whole it was an excellent night and a job well done, a pleasure to watch a craftsman that is Phil Coulter and Roy Buckley in our home village. -- Stephen Stack  P.R. Parish

 

DUAGH PARISH notes; A Special Celebration to reflect the life of Father Pat Moore on what would be his 60th birthday on Saturday 10th June @ 7.30pm in St Bridgid's Church , followed by refreshments and local entertainment in true Fr Pat Style.

 

Slán go fóill to our parish priest of 12 years, the Priest who helped so many, many people.  Duagh was given the Blessing that was Fr. Pat.  The resounding laughter – remember – The Pimple, The wart, The Magic Horses of Cill Stuithín and of course his final book “Weathering the Storm”.

 

The storyteller, who would always have a relevant Gospel message, but would turn comic to send us home with a good joke and a smile on our face.Fr Pat is the eternal optimist who was accessible to each and every one of us, evidenced by the doors he opened and the gates he didn’t close.

 

We will remember him with fondness, and continue to remember him in our Prayers

 

May he rest in peace.

DEATH OF NUN, At Presentation Convent, Listowel,

 

The death of Sister M. St. Anne which occurred at the Presentation Convent, Listowel, at the early age of 35 years, has occasioned deep regret and sympathy throughout the community. Deceased, who was 18 years in religion, was daughter of the late Mr. Patk. Kennelly, Knockanure, Listowel.

DEATH AND FUNERAL OF SISTER REGIS KENNELLY, PRESENTATION CONVENT, LISTOWEL.

 

The death of Sister Regis Kennelly, of the Presentation Convent, Listowel, which occurred at a private Nursing Home in Dublin on Monday, in the 51st year of her life, and the 31st of her religious profession, has occasioned genuine regret throughout North Kerry district. Her death has left the Presentation Order bereft of a member who was kind, loving and obliging, for it may be safely said of Sister Regis that she was geniality personified. As a teacher she devoted her noble mind and brilliant talent to the teaching and upbringing of her pupils in the path of morality and learning, and left nothing undone to further their future prospects. During her whole time she endeared herself to parents and scholars alike, many of whom travelled many miles to be present at her funeral.

 

On Tuesday the remains were met outside the town by a large concourse o£ people, who conveyed them to the Convent Chapel. High Mass was celebrated for the repose of the soul of deceased. Very Rev. Canon White presided, the celebrant being Rev. J. Moynihan, S.T.L., President, St. Michael's College, Listowel; Rev. E. O'Riordan, C.C., deacon; Rev. J . McGrath, C.C.. sub-deacon; Rev. A. J.

KERRY— Death of a Religious.

 

In the cemetery attached to the Presentation Convent, Listowel, on December 2, the remains of Sister Mary John, who had spent forty-six years in religion were laid to rest. Deceased lady was a daughter of the late Mr. John Grant, Listowel, and a grand-daughter of the late Mr. Maurice Dalton, who was one of the first Catholics appointed to the magistracy after the relaxation of the penal laws.

 

LYNCH: New Zealand Tablet, Volume XXI, Issue 49, 6 April 1894, Page 9

 

The following recently appeared in the Kerry Post.

 

A young man named Lynch, a native of Listowel, is reported to have very cleverly effected his escape from Cork gaol a few days ago. Lynch was arrested on a charge of desertion from the Munster Fusiliers, and was temporarily detained in the gaol pending the arrival of a military escort. While the warder was inspecting Lynch’s cell the latter slipped out, and almost got out to the corridor when the warder sprung upon him. Lynch, then getting the better of his gaoler, pushed him back into the cell, and having in the twinkling of an eye shut the door, quickly turned the key, and thus locked the warder securely in the cell. By the means of a pass key, Lynch gained the open air, free. He then made for Listowel, where, however, he was again apprehended and conveyed to Dublin under a military escort from his regiment.

Slán go fóill to our parish priest of 12 years, the Priest who helped so many, many people.  Duagh was given the Blessing that was Fr. Pat.  The resounding laughter – remember – The Pimple, The wart, The Magic Horses of Cill Stuithín and of course his final book “Weathering the Storm”.

 

The storyteller, who would always have a relevant Gospel message, but would turn comic to send us home with a good joke and a smile on our face.Fr Pat is the eternal optimist who was accessible to each and every one of us, evidenced by the doors he opened and the gates he didn’t close.

 

We will remember him with fondness, and continue to remember him in our Prayers

 

May he rest in peace.

DEATH OF REV. MOTHER TERESA KELLY PRESENTATION CONVENT, LISTOWEL. [Communicated)

 

NOT only the religious and Catholic laity of the diocese of Kerry, but the large circle, besides, by whom she was known and venerated, will feel with regret that the blank left in her community by the death of Reverend Mother Teresa Kelly on Wednesday last, will be long before it ceases to be suffered from. A long life of activity, intelligence and holiness, under trying circumstances, endeared her to all who know her personally or by report.

 

Upwards of fifty years ago Miss Kelly entered the Presentation Convent, Killarney, and soon after passing through an edifying novitiate was appointed superioress. In this important office she distinguished herself by bar prudence and zeal alike; her charity knew no limit, and yet she never involved her community in embarrassments. During her term of office in Killarney, the first of the monks of La Trappe, whose abbey is now so well known at Mount Melleray, near Cappoquin, came to this country from France. They were penniless, and depended for support on the charity of the people. The first of those who stretched out the hand to help them was Rev. Mother Teresa, her influence procured them a house to live in, and her pecuniary aid to their establishment in Ireland was important. Visitors to the Abbey of Mount Melleray may hear of a lady who is publicly prayed for by the monks as a great benefactress to their order, well-known to the older brothers, this lady is Mother Teresa. All, but a few old monks on crutches, have died, of the brothers who came over from France, and as silence is one of the chief disciplines of La Trappe, few of the present community know the name of the lady for whom the public prayers are offered.

 

Having filled with honour the office, of superioress at Killarney for several years, Mother Teresa, with a few sisters, left the community to found a convent at Milltown, a small town at the bend of Dingle Bay. Under her able government, this undertaking prospered, and the schools attached were filled with the children of the peasantry and townspeople. Here Mother Teresa remained until she had passed her fiftieth year. At this period of life few men or women undertake new and important works, but Mother Teresa, hearing of the great want of educational establishments in North Kerry, consented to break her attachments to the convent she had founded and made prosperous, and begin anew in Listowel. She founded the convent of Holy Cross in that town onwards of twenty years ago, with three assistant sisters. Of her acts of charity during the famine, years no praise could be too loud. She was the chief reliance of priests and people in that district during that dreary period. Her small community gradually gained accessions, and on the day of her death she had the happiness to see it one of the most prosperous and beloved of the Presentation Convents.

 

Many priests on the foreign and home missions owe the means which enabled them to prosecute, their studies to this holy woman, and would regret her loss were they not Euro that she has passed to a place where the virtues she practised and the peace she loved and taught here are eternal.

 

 

 

TROCAIRE Facts and figures:

 

   Global land deals in the last 10 years total 200 million hectares, equivalent to 25 times the size of the Ireland being sold or leased

 

    High consumption living globally increases the demand for land. Vast swathes of vital rainforest are cleared every day to make way for palm oil production.

 

    Palm oil prolongs shelf life of food – almost half of all products in supermarkets contain palm oil, including biscuits, ice cream, processed foods, cleaning products, cosmetics.

 

Most of the world’s poor share three traits:

 

   They live in rural areas – 75% of the world’s poor live in rural areas

 

    They rely on land, forests and agriculture to survive

 

    They do not have legal control over the land and natural resources on which they depend.

THE BRUFF SCHOOL.

 

ATTACK AGAINST THE "LIMERICK LEADER." Dublin, Thursday. To-day in the Nisi Prius Court No. 1. before Mr .Justice O'Brien and a special jury, the hearing was commenced of Thomas Bowman v. Jeremiah Buckley. The plaintiff was a school-master, qualified under the National Education Board, and he brought the action against the defendant as proprietor of the '"Limerick Leader" to recover damages laid at £500 for libels published in that paper. The defendant traversed the course of action generally, and pleaded fair comment. Counsel for the plaintiff –the  MacDermott Q. C; Mr Seymour Bushe. Q C. and M C P Doyle (instructed by Mr James Doyle. Counsel for the defendant- Mr F L O'Shaughnessy, Q C; Mr. J H Campbell, Q C, and Mr J Powell.

 

The MacDermott , Q C, stated the plaintiff's case. He said that he had been a teacher at Cappamore , and in the month of November 1897, the school of Bruff became  vacant It had up to the 23rd September, 1897, been taught by the Christian  Brothers, who then retired. The parish priest of Bruff was the Rev Dean Cussen, who was anxious to have good primary education for the poor children of his parish. He built the school , and he entered into an agreement with the Christian  Brothers that they should teach the children on certain terms. Those terms were that they Should always have at least two teachers there, they were to receive £60 a year, and in addition £30 a year for a lay brother as distinguished from a school brother. A controversy arose the merits or demerits of which

 

 of which in his judgment were wholly foreign to the controversy  which they had to try. Mr Bowman the plaintiff, had nothing whatever to do with that controversy between the ecclesiastical authorities of Limerick and the Christian Brothers. The Bruff school thus became vacant , and plaintiff was appointed from amongst a number of candidates. The Limerick Leader" then commenced a series of violent attacks on Mr Bowman. The first article was published on the 26th November, 1897, as follows—" If they (meaning the Christian Brothers) " be not recalled, this much may at all events , be taken for granted, that the strong men of Bruff , backed by this journal will make, as we have  already hinted, the lives of the grabbers of the evicted Brothers  schools a hell upon earth." The following article was published on the 1st December , 1897—" It was Father M’Namara's intention to open the evicted Schools on yesterday, a brand new teacher named Bowman or No-Man having been somehow or other secured to take the place of the pious Brothers, but the sterling men and women of brave and faithful Bruff trooped in their hundreds to the spot, and put—well, in homely Celtic parlance—they put the kibaush on the Very Rev gentleman's little plan and the school did not open.

Looking for information on O'Donnell ancestors

 

I am looking for information on John (Sean) O'Donnell.  I did have someone send me a message indicating that they had found baptism records for a John O'Donnell in July 1797 in your parish.  I have found information that his birthdate could be 1797 or 1799.  i am having trouble finding out much about him back in Ireland.  He married Margaret Carroll in Ireland & I believe two of their children, Thomas & Mary were both born in Ireland before emigrating to Canada.   Hope someone can help.

Mr Irwln—In consequence of what was said to you did you go to the house of Mr J Flavin?—I did, sir; he was In his shop, and I asked him what charge had he against me—did I do him any harm, or how did I deserve it; Mr Flavin then said to me to come to the League room to clear myself, I said I would; there was no more ; I left Flavin's house then. (Witness continuing) said I  remembered the 23rd April when he got a letter written to Flavin by his daughter; he remembered the following day Sunday the 24th; he attended at Listowel  on that day and went to the Federation room; he saw Mr Flavin there ; he asked him If he had received his letter and Mr Flavin said he had. Mr Flavin then read the letter for the meeting, and his case was brought before it; John Dillane was there; Mr Flavin did not take the chair on that occasion, nor did he see anyone else in it; James Cotter was present-with others; Dillane did not bring any charge against him for having taken the land; he said he (witness) was an emergency man, and witness said that if he was an emergency man Dillane was another ; Cotter did not say anything but, " Dooling it is better to settle and be good friends."

A Living History Comprehensive School Tarbert, County Kerry.

 

Tarbert Comprehensive School is situated on the coast road a quarter of a mile west of the village of Tarbert in North Kerry. The 12 acre elevated site overlooks the catchment area to the West, East and South and has its back to the Shannon Estuary. The school was established in 1973 as a merger of the three existing schools in the area, St. Ita’s in Tarbert, Mr. Dore’s in Glin and Glin Vocational School. It was to cater for the children of the parishes of Loughill/Ballyhahill, Moyvane, Glin, Athea, Lenamore/Ballylongford and Tarbert itself.

 

When it opened its doors in September 1973 the school had an intake of 280 students with 18 teaching staff, 2 caretakers and one secretary. Since then numbers have continued to grow with a constant student enrollment of over 600.

THOUGHT: The circumstances and events that we see as setbacks are oftentimes the very things that launch us into periods of intense spiritual growth. Once we begin to understand this, and accept it as a spiritual fact of life, adversity becomes easier to bear. -Charles Stanley.

 

NATIONAL HOLY WELLS DAY June 18th

 

There are around 3,000 Holy Wells in Ireland. Since early Christian times these have been seen as places of prayer and healing. National Holy Wells Day invites you to become aware of how precious water is. Visit a local Holy Well and pray for the protection of water. Plan with others how you can protect the water in your area.

 

From Kerry Diocese site.

 

Gathering at St. Brigids Well in Derryra, Ballyduff, Co Kerry on the eve of St Brigid’s Day at 5pm Having met and parked near the nearby Cashen river we now approached the well slowly to the sound of a bodhrán. One of us had placed beautiful lanterns and candles around the well and a St. Brigid’s cross. Twelve of us had gathered, and just before we started to walk we were reminded

 

of the sacredness of the place we were about to enter...sacred for our ancestors who had also come here to pray and do the rounds. Then encircling the well, we listened to Gamhain Molta Bríde and

 

some of us joined in at times ,a haunting recording by Noirin Ni Riain.

 

Then we heard a little about Brigid herself, a woman of liminal time... on the boundaries,

 

between pagan and Christian, born at sunrise as her mother crossed the threshold, daughter of a slave and chief, a woman who reached out to those on the margins, building a monastery for both women and men, who loved creation and needed solitude and contemplation. Mary who had

 

written a book**about wells in North Kerry told us a little of this particular well, Tobar a’Leighis

 

,situated beside the roadside beside an existing rath, giving the townland its name ‘Doire Rá tha Beag’.Then we listened to the legend of Brigid’s cloak or brath, while someone cut strips for each of us to take home (to leave out overnight to take in the dew and then use during the year ...said to have healing properties).(See the green hessian cloth on the ground in the photo).

 

Then it was time for a little sacred movement or dance ‘The Pilgrim Walk’, which was a simple way

 

to come into the peace and tranquillity of the place on the roadside near the statue of Brigid, to

 

sense the strength of others as we moved.. to be carried and without any need for perfection or

 

competition. This included a lovely movement of gathering the water....and then we did just that

 

.One of us bent down near the well and carefully filled all our jars....something to take home and to

 

scatter north, south, east and west. Finally ,we thought about the bees....who sadly are in trouble...and recognising that Brigid was possibly a bee keeper, each person received a packet of  wildflower seeds collected in Kerry by Niamh Ni Dhúill, and a page about helping the bees in our gardens from the publication ‘Gardens’ part of the ‘All-Ireland Pollinator Plan’ (www.biodiversityireland.ie/pollinatorplan) It was time for our closing prayer: a Prayer to St

 

.Brigid and part of a ‘Prayer for our Earth’ from Laudato Si’.

 

And then a walk, for some, back to our cars in the light of the beautiful crescent moon and Venus.

 

Sylvia Thompson.

 

 

 

ST Brendan

 

Clonfert — the Irish version of the name means ‘field of miracles’ — is the site of a 6th century monastery of St. Brendan the Navigator. This is the most famous of the many monasteries founded by that great saint. He is more widely known for his extensive travels to spread the faith and accounts of his life are to be found in all the ancient libraries of Europe. Of the two journals attributed to him the “Navigatio” is perhaps the most widely read. This book recounts his journey from Kerry to the Faroes, to Iceland, Greenland and on to America.

 

After St. Brendan’s death Clonfert grew to become a city of learning with well over 3,000 students, many from Britain and Europe. Nothing now remains of the original holy city, but of the succeeding ecclesial buildings the 12th century Cathedral with its beautiful 13th century doorway continues to witness the Christian tradition and is in use for Church of Ireland worship. Tradition has it that St. Brendan is buried opposite the Cathedral door.

ARE YOU AWARE OF THE NCCA SURVEY ON RELIGIOUS EDUCATION IN OUR PRIMARY SCHOOLS?

 

Religious Education will no longer be a subject in the state recognised Primary Schools Curriculum, under the NCCA’s proposal, unless you let your views be known.  Is this a move to remove Religious Education from our schools?  This move devalues and challenges the place and status of Religious Education in our schools. Is this what you want for the future generations of children?  As a matter of urgency parents, teachers, Boards of Management and interested adults need to engage with the survey before closing date 26th May 2017. The NCCA survey is available online: http://www.ncca.ie/en/Curriculum_and_Assessment/Early_Childhood_and_Primary_Education/Primary-Education/Primary_Developments/Structure-and-Time-Allocation)

In Brief Mission to go green

 

RESULTING from a recent Parish mission, Killarney parish is organising a special environment meeting in The John Paul II Pastoral Centre on Thursday, April 17 (8pm – 9.30pm).

 

Guest speaker Fr Pat Moore will highlight how our environment can enrich our lives, whether it be physically, mentally or spiritually. In a bid to put protection of our environment as a key parish ministry, those attending will be invited to join one of five interest groups. Topics include: ‘Nature – God’s work, exploring our role’; ‘Killarney Waters’ (streamscapes: information and field trip); ‘Home and the Environment’ – practical steps to take; ‘Joining the Killarney Clean-up’ and ‘Our Youth – Our Future’. (See paper for more)

NO CHILDREN

 

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | May 08, 2017

 

As Emmanuel Macron moved toward his landslide victory in the French presidential election, the fashionable media outlets noticed a stunning reality about Europe’s current political leaders:

 

 

 

    Macron, the newly elected French president, has no children.

 

    German chancellor Angel Merkel has no children.

 

    British prime minister Theresa May has no children.

 

    Italian prime minister Paolo Gentiloni has no children.

 

    Holland’s Mark Rutte, Sweden’s Stefan Löfven, Luxembour’s Xavier Bettel, Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon—all have no children.

 

    Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, has no children.

 ST. BRENDAN –BISHOP RAY WRITES

 

I encourage each parish to each year celebrate the Feast of St Brendan, either on the Feast Day

 

,May 16th or a Sunday near it. The Feast occurs at a positive and hopeful time of the year. Nature is full of new life again, our world is green again. New life is born among animals and birds. There can equally be new life to our faith. In honouring St Brendan let us honour all our local Christian heritage. Throughout the diocese there is a tradition of devotion, strong and deep.

 

Notice locally the shrines, halls, schools and churches bearing St Brendan’s name. Notice the stained glass windows and icons and pieces of sculpture or carving and the particular aspects of his life and mission each focuses on. Dates suggest St Brendan could have lived into his nineties, 578 is most often given as the date of his death. St Brendan travelled far, initially to deepen his faith, spending time in such monasteries as Clonard, Co Meath. Later he journeyed in Ireland to share his faith, founding monasteries such as Cloontuskert Co Roscommon, and, Clonfert and Annaghdown, both in Co Galway......Monasteries were places of learning and education for the locality, places of care for the sick and the poor, places of agricultural improvement, -all making present God’s love.

 

Through St Brendan what is God saying to us in our time?

 

As communities today are we challenged and missioned to deepen our faith and to live God’s love with in our communities? The crowds of pilgrims who gather continuously at Fatima remind us of how world-wide the faith gives meaning to people’s lives: how much trouble and distress there is in the world, -how much our world needs, love and care, gentleness and kindness. Can we do anything to share the Gospel of Christ’s love with other communities?

 

O God who helped St Brendan navigate the seas in his eagerness to spread the Gospel; grant us, at his intercession, on our journey through life to set our course according to your peace and bring us to the harbour we desire in heaven.

His positive attitude and determination has touched the lives of many.  You’ve guessed correctly – yes Robert is back again with the Senans and is the heart and soul of the club.  His witness should be very special.

 

Dawn Mass Lixnaw: was a wonderful and uplifting experience.  The following appeared in the Rathmines Newsletter: “Then as I rounded a curve in the road, I saw it and it brought much pleasure.  A simple sign that seemed, in the midst of all the busy movement and activity, appropriate only to a time gone by. Nevertheless this plucky little notice announced Dawn Mass in Lixnaw. It was a salient reminder to the fast moving world that not on bread alone do we live.  Where will they celebrate the Dawn Mass I wondered? There are bogs and green fields but few hills around Lixnaw. That foolish thought misses the point.  In my mind’s eye I saw parishioners rising on Easter Sunday morning and going quietly to some place to pray with their priest and give thanks, just as their ancestors did in hard times.  The mass was actually celebrated in Kiltomey Cemetery and the massive Easter Fire was built in Sean Dowling’s field.

We wish him well in his new role as Parish Priest of Killorglin. Welcome to our new Parish Priest. Fr. John Lucid, a native of Castleisland.

THERE was a, great Christmas spirit throughout the area during the festive season, but especially at the Church of the Assumption where very large congregations attended all the Masses. Our Parish priest Fr. John Lucid, celebrated the vigil mass and the morning Mass on Christmas Day. The Church looked very well for the occasion, with the altar beautifully decorated. The crib was the subject of much favourable comment, as indeed was the performances of the choir.

 

 

 

Kerryman North Edition, Thursday, March 17, 2005(See paper for full report)

 

A BRAVE and beleaguered community thronged Moyvane Parish Church on Sunday morning, united in grief with the family of Patrick Hughes – a popular son of the parish who died in a tragic gas-leak accident during his first week staying overnight in Tralee, where he studied at the Institute of Technology.

 

The grief in the church was palpable as Moyvane Parish Priest John Lucid along with Canon Michael Fleming, Fr. Michael O’Leary and ITT chaplain Fr. Pat O’Donnell prepared the congregation for the hard task of burying the 18-yearold student.

 

Their comforting words, directed at Patrick’s parents, Danny and Noreen, his brothers and sisters and his first cousin and best friend, James Fitzgerald, who narrowly survived the tragic gas leak, were felt keenly by all.

Diocesan Collection for the education of Priests on next weekend 11th/ 12th June. Exam Mass : The Exam Mass was celebrated on Saturday last by Fr.

The Choir and the local branch of Comhaltas greatly enhanced the ceremony. Wishing all those doing Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate the best of luck in their examinations.

 

SAINT: 29 April 2017 feast of St. Catherine of Siena, patroness of Italy (and Europe in general) and fire prevention, and one of the Church's most beloved saints.

 

"Though she lived her life in a faith experience and spirituality far different from that of our own time, Catherine of Siena stands as a companion with us on the Christian journey in her undivided effort to invite the Lord to take flesh in her own life. Events which might make us wince or chuckle or even yawn fill her biographies: a mystical experience at six, childhood betrothal to Christ, stories of harsh asceticism, her frequent ecstatic visions. Still, Catherine lived in an age which did not know the rapid change of 21st-century mobile America. The value of her life for us today lies in her recognition of holiness as a goal to be sought over the course of a lifetime."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MENTAL HEALTH

 

Lets get Limerick (Ireland) talking about mental health this May.

 

 

 

Can your parish or local group be part of the conversation?? What would it be like to offer green ribbons after Mass on Sunday this May?

 

 

 

See Change, the National Stigma Reduction Partnership are rolling out a month long national Green Ribbon Campaign to get people talking openly about mental health problems in May 2017

 

 

 

More than 500,000 green ribbons will be distributed nationwide free of charge to spark a national conversation about mental health in boardrooms, break-rooms, chat rooms, clubhouses, arts venues, college campuses and around kitchen tables throughout Ireland. Our aim is to make the month of May every year synonymous with promoting open conversation of mental health and challenging the stigma of mental health problems.

 

 

 

You don’t need to be an expert to start talking about mental health or have all the answers. Sometimes the most helpful thing you can do is to let someone know that you are there for them and simply listen.

 

 

 

    Talk, but listen too: Simply being there will mean a lot.

 

    Take your lead from the person: As a first step, ask them how best you can help.

 

    Avoid the clichés: Phrases like ‘Cheer up’, ‘I’m sure it’ll pass’ and ‘Pull yourself together’ definitely won’t help - Being open minded, non-judgemental and listening will.

 

    Keep in touch: There are lots of small ways of showing support - Send a text or just ask someone how they are doing.

 

    Don’t just talk about mental health: Just be yourself, chat about everyday things as well.

Every downpour is just a raindrop; every fire is just a spark; every harvest is just a seed; every journey is just a step because without that step there will be no journey; without that raindrop there can be no shower; without that seed there can be no harvest. -- William Wilberforce.

Moyvane hosts a week long mission

 

BY STEPHEN STACK

 

THE North Kerry village of Moyvane is this week preparing to host a weeklong parish mission coinciding with the Golden Jubilee year of the local church in the parish.

 

“The Church of the Assumption in Moyvane is this year celebrating its fiftieth year and a mission is a suitable way to celebrate the Golden Jubilee for our church,” said Parish Priest, Fr John Lucid.

 

The mission opens on Saturday, March 18 with a special vigil mass, commencing at 8pm.

Moyvane Church celebrates 50 years at the heart of the community

 

BY DÓNAL NOLAN

 

 IT was a Vigil Mass with a difference in Moyvane on Saturday night when the entire community came together to celebrate 50 years of the Church of the Assumption.

 

Indeed, community was very much the main concept of the night where, at the behest of Parish Priest Fr. John Lucid, many of the sporting and cultural organisations active in the parish paraded into the church under colourful banners.

 

“We were very pleased with this aspect of the night,” Fr Lucid told The Kerryman. “We wanted to thank all these community groups, from the GAA to the ICA, for their many of years of support to both the population and the church. It was wonderful to see them all line out and we had a most enjoyable evening afterwards,” he said.

 

Concelebrating the Mass were Bishop Bill Murphy and Fr Pat Ahern - two men the parish were delighted to have sharing in their celebrations.

 

One other member of the clergy present on the night with deep ties to the church was Fr Thomas Hickey. He was there to celebrate the church’s Golden Jubilee 40 years after he said his last Mass as a curate in the parish.

 

Reunited with old friends, Fr. Hickey – who was responsible for setting up the Plain Players Drama Group in 1965 which went on to tour the country including a stint at the Abbey with Lady Gregory’s Spreading the News – thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

 

 

 

KNOCKANURE Community Centre News

 

Each month the Active Retirement meal is proving to be a great success.  Numbers are increasing each time.  March meal was a great success with fifty –eight people attending.  Stevie Donegan entertained the group with lots of music.  People took to the floor with the waltz and jive.  Some individuals even contributed to the occasion with their own party piece.  Of course the day would not be complete without the raffle.  Overall it proves to be a wonderful day where people meet and mix.

 

 

 

Exercise classes with Maggie Large are more than the loud music, fast moments and shouts of encouragement that are seen and heard from Knockanure Community Centre.  Attending one of Maggie’s classes gets you off the couch and out from the same four walls of your home to meet people in your community.  In Knockanure Centre you will be able to make new friends, have adult conversation and exercise at the same time with a lot of emphasis on the ‘Fun’ aspect of fitness.  Maggie will certainly push you to your limits to achieve your goals.

THOUGHT: Jesus Christ lived in the midst of his enemies. At the end all his disciples deserted him. On the Cross he was utterly alone, surrounded by evildoers and mockers. For this cause he had come, to bring peace to the enemies of God. So the Christian, too, belongs not in the seclusion of a cloistered life but in the thick of foes. Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

 

SCHOOLS; Over 350 students, representing 14 post-primary schools from throughout the diocese, attended the Ceiliúradh na nOg celebration day in the Brandon Hotel in Tralee on Wednesday, March 29th. 2017  The students presented their projects which they carried out over the academic year. The purpose of Ceiliúradh na nÓg is to develop the faith life of Transition and Fifth year students.  This was achieved through school or parish based initiatives.  The variation of projects was outstanding and included subjects like the liturgical year, church architecture, liturgical music, justice and peace, ecology and much more.

 

Deirdre Walsh from Kerry Radio was the M.C. for the occasion and Br. Richard Hendrick was the guest speaker.  Br. Richard’s keynote address was entitled: ‘Fully Awake, Fully Aware, Fully Alive in Christ: Living the Light of the Gospel.’  There was also a number of faith based workshops in the morning, presenters included, Stephen Farley from Trócaire, Stephen touched on Social Justice issues.  Anne O’ Donnell from Siamsa Tire presented an excellent workshop on liturgical movement and dance and Joanne Barry, also from Siamsa Tire, presented a workshop on Faith and Drama.  We were delighted to welcome Jonny Sommerville from NUA Ireland.  NUA is Scripture Union Ireland’s first ever film series. NUA is all about exploration, it’s a film series that encourages questions, acknowledges doubt, and offers an engaging fresh perspective on the Christian faith.  Paul Montgomery, Chaplain at Causeway Comprehensive and Lizzie Harrison, Galway based Youth Pastoral Worker, focused on Christian Mindfulness and Meditation.  Ruti Lachs, Kerry based musician, presented an excellent workshop on Spirituality through Music.

We would like to thank everybody who made Stage 2 of our  International Cycle race held on the roads of West Limerick/North Kerry  on Saturday 15th ,  of the Easter Week-end such a huge success. Thank you to the public for their co-operation as there are traffic delays as the race moves along the route.

 

It is a huge operation to put a race of this magnitude on the public roads and the help and co-operation we received was enormous.

 

We say thank you to the Gardaí, for their help and advice. To all the local & national  correspondants and local radio stations for keeping the public informed.

 

The local cycling community took the race on board in a big way. Glin Knights were superb as were Athea CC, Listowel CC, also  Newcastle West CC, Kerry Crusaders CC, and many more who all helped with Stewarding the 130km Route.

 

Athea was outstanding , everybody helped in some way. Our appreciation to Athea GAA Club,

 

Athea Community Council, Athea Tidy Towns Committee, Tim & Con Scanlon is acknowledged. To our local sponsors. Adams Garage Glin,  Athea Sponsors were, Paul Collins Bar, TJ Reidy Cleaning Services, Raymond Enright Kitchens, & Colm Hassett Gym & Fitness Centre.

 

Our Stage Sponsors were G. Moriarty & Sons Electrical Contractors Listowel & Listowel Cycling Club & the Main Sponsor Kerry Group PLC. Also thank you to St. Michaels College & Emmets GAA Club in Listowel for hosting the start. A race like this cannot operate without Ambulance & medical cover , thank you to all here.

 

The icing on the cake was when we had a local winner,  Paul Kennedy of the Newcastlewest Team fought off top riders from , Ireland, England, Isle of Man, France ,Italy and Germany  to take victory to the delight of the local crowd.  This was the biggest win by a Limerick cyclist for a long time, and is up there with any victory by any Limerick athlete in any sport this year.  It was great to see him cross the line on RTE 6 o clock news that evening.  Of course we had the lovely Griffin twin sisters Amie & Racel and Katie Reidy to add glamour to the occasion when they presented flowers to the winners.

 

 

 

Many thanks to all from Billy Reidy Stage Organizer and Tadhg Moriarty Race Director.

THOUGHT: Some people want to see God with their eyes as they see a cow, and to love Him as they love a cow - for the milk and cheese and profit it brings them. This is how it is with people who love God for the sake of outward wealth or inward comfort. They do not rightly love God, when they love Him for their own advantage. --Meister Eckhart.

 

Hate doesn't always show up as hate in one's heart. It begins as a seemingly cuddly little cub known as offense, which tells him or her how great he is and that the entire world hates him. As the cub is allowed to grow, it turns into an untameable beast known as hate which turns on everyone, including the keeper who coddled it and fed it. Be wary of what you entertain within your soul. --

 

Michael A Lee.

 

FR. PAT MOORE WRITES:  I have been invisible and silent for a couple of weeks and here’s the reason, I’ve been in hospital.  On Wednesday March 8th 2017 , I was for my three monthly check up with the surgeon in Cork, it went very well, my bloods were excellent (I regard those as the Nasdaq or Dow jones index!). Had been feeling a cold rising in me but then I had been lucky enough to avoid any infection in two and a half years.   It was the following Monday before l got to the doctor but an antibiotic didn’t seem to touch it so I was admitted to Tralee hospital on Wednesday evening. That was the start of our St. Patrick’s Bank Holiday weekend so it was Monday before the team removed a large quantity of fluid that had built up in the lung. I had found it increasingly difficult to breathe and was using oxygen a lot.  As a result I spent a week in the ICU unit, time I really needed there, not realising how weakened I had become. Then I had a week out in the hospital ward and I found this most challenging of all as I had to rebuild my confidence in myself to do the most basic things from eating to walking to washing. My Cork oncology team are fully on board and a detailed examination of the fluid suggests the presence of a small growth similar to before. This is and will be treated by Chemotherapy as before and can be successfully dealt with as I’ve had a fulsome response to chemotherapy twice beforehand.  I came home from hospital yesterday and am already in the benefit of a great nights sleep in the Spring Air. I am in great form and in great care with family and Debbie, Kathleen and Ann. It’s building up time and where better but home.  Having totally cut off from phones, emails and all forms on outside communication I know there is a lot of messages of support and prayer that I’m not in a position to acknowledge but can I do so now and thank you for the felt support and concern.

 

Was it Churchill said, “rumours of my demise have been grossly exaggerated!”?  In summary, I had my weeks in hospital, challenging but worthwhile in that it highlights something that will need attention and a plan is in place when the time is right.

 

Right now I find talking and meeting people most tiring so I’m going private and quiet for a while. “

UNVEILING OF A STATUE OF THE SACRED HEART AT LISTOWEL WORKHOUSE CHAPEL. INTERESTING CEREMONY. On Friday, the Feast of the Sacred Heart, an interesting, and at the same time an impressive and devotional ceremony took place in the chapel connected with the Listowel Workhouse. The ceremony, which was witnessed by a large number of inmates, consisted in the unveiling of a statue of the Sacred Heart, the gift of the Sisters of Mercy connected with the Workhouse. The statute, which is almost life size, is of symmetrical proportions, finely shaped, nicely painted and beautifully finished. It is been placed in a permanent position at the Epistle side of the Altar, opposite at statue of the Blessed Virgin. The position chosen is admirable, and well calculated to attract the attention which a closer inspection of the figure sustains. To the Sisters of Mercy, who have presented the statute, a word of praise is due. Since their introduction into the house about 10 years marvellous improvements have resulted, tending to afford religious consolation to the poor inmates, as well as temporal comfort and strength to bear their unenviable lot. In the hospital their presence has made itself felt. The afflicted who have undergone treatment in that portion of the house have been tended and cared with that solicitude which has made the presence of the nuns of the Mercy Order so peculiarly welcome in the sick chamber. Thoughtful kindness regarding those placed under their charge, a deep and sincere interest in their wants whether of a spiritual or of a loving nature. A disposition to go far to gratify the slightest wish of a patient calculated to secure his peace of mind, and a desire to soothe the miseries of the wretched borne down with physical suffering and mental anxieties; all these qualities have characterised the members of the mercy order in general, and are particularly applicable to the sisters tending the sick in the Listowel workhouse. Cases of sickness of every conceivable description have been treated in the hospital under the direction of the medical officer, assisted by the gentle nuns who shrink from no danger in the discharge of their noble and arduous duties. The cleanliness of the hospital and its efficient management have been raised to a high standard by the exertions of the nuns. Every apartment under their control is scrupulously clean. While strictly discharging the duties connected with the treatment of patients corporally, the sisters have not neglected to attend to their wants spiritually. Their own lives have been before the patients as object lessons of love, patience and charity, which are highly calculated to refine their language!, and to elevate and ennoble their thoughts. The little chapel in the house which required considerable improvements was speedily transformed into a pretty Temple on the introduction of the nuns. The altar was improved, and seats placed in the aisle. Scarcely any portion of the workhouse has escaped their chastening influence. It has been said of Sir Christopher Wren that he could see his own monument by looking round at his own work. So it is with the Sisters of Mercy in the Listowel Workhouse. In the diligent discharge of their onerous duties, in the soothed afflictions for the wretched, in the improvements which have been mentioned as having taken place in the chapel, as well as in the introduction of some statues and the adornment and embellishment of the temple generally, and in the consolation which their presence has afforded to the poor, the work of the nuns is visible, and their monument at the same time as plainly discernable. On Friday morning Mass was celebrated in the chapel by the Rev. Father Brick, and it was followed by benediction, in the course of which the statue was unveiled.

 

Father Brick having performed the ceremony, in the course of an earnest and impressive sermon on the boundless love of the Sacred Heart for man, expressed his delight at the action of the nuns in adding to the other statues the splendid one he had unveiled. He paid a warm and well-merited tribute to the sisters for the energy and self-sacrifice which they always displayed in the discharge of their duties to God and man. Solemn Benediction concluded the ceremonies.
