EUCHARISTIC ADORATION IN KNOCKANURE CHURCH:  Tuesday 10am to 6pm (Knockanure Group)

 

Wednesday 10am to 7pm (Moyvane Group) – will still be in Knockanure Church this week due to ongoing work in the Moyvane Sacristy.  It will resume, God willing, in Moyvane on Wednesday 29th November starting time 12noon due to tidying up after the Church concert.  

 

PRAYERS & SYMPATHY:  To Joe & Peggy Barrett & Family, Carrueragh on the death of Joe’s brother Tom Barrett, Southgate, London & l/o Knockdown, Athea whose funeral took place in England on Fri 17th.   To the family & relatives of Elizabeth O’Connor (née Sheehy), Greenville, Listowel whose funeral took place last Monday.  To Marie Connor, Kilbaha & New Jersey on the death of her husband Robert whose funeral took place in Knockanure on Wednesday last.  We extend our prayerful support to all relatives in the parish.   May Tom, Elizabeth & Robert Rest in Peace.  

 

POPE FRANCIS DEDICATES THIS SUNDAY  WORLD DAY OF THE POOR

 

Jesus tells us that in the end we will be judged on how we dealt with the poor.  The true measure of our character is how we treat the poor, the disfavoured, the accused, the incarcerated and the condemned.  We are all implicated when we allow other people to be mistreated.  An absence of compassion can corrupt the decency of a parish, a nation and indeed our world.  Do I reach out in compassion to the poor?  It is not enough just to give money to the poor we must give them the respect they deserve as our brothers and sisters in Christ.  This Sunday, ask yourself the honest question:   How do I treat the poor?

 

                  TALENT IMPORTANT BUT CHARACTER IS MORE IMPORTANT

 

I don’t believe there is any such thing as a born footballer, writer or painter.  But Gerry came very close to being an exception.  He was a great footballer.  Of course, he had to work at it, but everyone agreed that he was natural.  It came as no surprise when at seventeen a top professional club snapped him up.  He didn’t have long to wait for his big chance.  He had just celebrated his 20th birthday when he found himself selected for the first team.  He made an immediate impact.  Almost overnight, he shot from obscurity to fame.  From there on it was one success after another.  Within two years, he was the club’s leading scorer.  By now, he was playing for his country.  Everywhere football was talked about his name was mentioned.  To the supporters he was a hero.  To the media he was a celebrity.  He revelled in his success.  A few years earlier, he was just an ordinary youth in his rural parish.  Now he was rich and famous.  He married a beautiful woman, drove a Mercedes and was the envy of every youth who played football.  However, things soon started to go wrong.  There were rumours that he was drinking heavily.  The rumours proved to be well founded.  His football began to suffer. 

 

His personal life began to disintegrate.  His wife suddenly left him, claiming that he was selfish and immature.  Sadly, Gerry’s glittering career came to a premature end.  He was remembered as much for the manner in which he squandered a rare talent as for what he achieved with it.  It is dangerous when a talent springs up overnight, far better that it should grow up quietly and almost unnoticed, like a seed grows into a tree.  Talent is important but character is even more important.  Talent is formed quietly, character in the midst of everyday living.  What is the point of developing a talent if one leaves oneself underdeveloped.  

 

TWO VERY SPECIAL VISITORS

 

This weekend for the re-opening of Moyvane Church we are delighted to welcome two special visitors to our parish.  Fr. Simon Twomey, Killarney on Saturday for our Vigil Mass and then on Sunday morning for 11am Mass we will have Bishop Ray.  We welcome them and we are delighted that they are sharing this special celebration with us.  Sincere thanks to one and all who contributed in any way in having our Church looking so beautiful.  

 

SINCERE THANKS TO THE MARIAN HALL COMMITTEE

 

Sincere thanks to the Marian Hall Committee for their very generous help in accommodating us while Moyvane Church was closed for renovations.  A very special word of thanks to Catherine who ensured that the hall was open, warm and ready for the celebration of Mass.  Her help was invaluable and always given so cheerfully.

PARISH CHRISTMAS CARDS:  Our Parish Christmas cards are on sale in the Parish Office.  By buying them, you are supporting our ongoing works in both Churches, but indirectly you are supporting our excellent Post Office too.  I have heard many say “Ah with the stamps costing €1, everyone will be sending a text instead”, and some phone providers are giving so called ‘free texts’ for Christmas – it would be cheaper and so much easier to go with them!  If Mary and our Post Office goes – texts and phone companies won’t be able to give us pensions, lodge money or pay bills etc.  Above all the delightful and most helpful service, which we currently enjoy here in Moyvane, will be lost and gone forever.  Therefore, by getting the Christmas Cards, you are supporting our two Churches and by getting the stamps and posting the cards, you are helping our Post Office.  It’s only when a Church, a Post Office, a School, a Creamery, a Pub etc are closed and gone that we really appreciated how very special they are to us.  Let’s support while we can. 

 

MOYVANE CHURCH RE-OPENS SATURDAY 18TH

 

The wait is finally over.   Next Saturday the 18th, we will have an official re-opening as we joyfully return to our Church – THE CHURCH OF THE ASSUMPTION.  Fr. Simon Twomey of Killarney will cut the ribbon, celebrate a blessing and share delightful words with us.  Be there for history and hopefully all will be duly surprised and delighted with the work.  Then on Sunday 19th Bishop Ray will be the main celebrant at our 11am Mass.  It promises to be a special weekend.  All welcome.

 

                                                    WAITING FOR HIS COMING

 

The foolish and the wise?  The foolish had no oil in their lamps.  They burnt themselves out through a life of self-seeking and dedication to the worldly cares and distractions.  They do not even think of the Lord, much less wait for His coming.  The wise on the other hand, have oil in their lamps.  They are detached from themselves and the cares of the world and are full of charity and generosity.  They are waiting for the Lord and desire nothing else but His coming.  Let us keep our minds alight with faith, our souls alight with hope and our hearts alight with love, as we wait in joyful hope for the coming of our loving Saviour Jesus.  

 

                                                          HANDS UP FOR EOIN!!

 

Yes, it’s a massive thumbs up to Eoin Hand, Glenalappa on the publication of his book ‘First Hand: My Life and Irish Football’ launched in Dublin on Monday last.  It is a very readable book written so honestly in Eoin’s inimitable style.  Great reaction to it both in Ireland and in the UK.  Autographed copies on sale in the Parish Office and in Woulfes Bookshop, Listowel this Saturday 11th at 4pm.  Warm congratulations and very well done to Eoin, Pauline and all the Family.

All who are prepared to help with our second Church Concert staring THE THREE TENORS are invited to attend a meeting in Murhur National School this coming Wednesday 15th at 8.30pm.  The more volunteers we have the easier it will be in insuring that the Concert runs smoothly.  There was tremendous reaction and such positive comments on how excellent the stewarding was for our last Concert.  Your support is greatly appreciated and every ounce of help is valued.  Thank you.

 

CHRISTMAS – YOUR CHOICE

 

What’s all this talk about ‘dreading Christmas’?  How you and I spend Christmas is our own personal choice.  Some people have chosen to make the season a time for excess.  Jesus is the reason for the season, so why not choose independently how you will spend Christmas 2017.  It’s your choice:  Be pressured to keep up with the wealth of others and spending to excess or be blessed and encouraged by having Jesus at the heart of your Christmas.  He would encourage you to have a warm cosy home to which everyone would be welcome, Christmas Tree, decorations and the Crib.  Relax and plan in peace it’s your choice.  Make Christmas 2017 special.  

 

RED WEDNESDAY

 

Christians are asked to make Wednesday November 22nd ‘Red Wednesday’.  We are asked to remember the witness of Christian Martyrs past and present by praying the Angelus at 12 and 6 O’Clock.  Wearing a red tie or red scarf as a symbolic reminder of all Christians who have suffered and died for their faith.  Have red lights on display in your home or place of work.

Lord God, whose days are without end

And whose mercies beyond counting, Keep us mindful That life is short and the hour of death unknown.

Let you Spirit guide our days on earth

In the way of holiness and justice,

That we may serve you in union with the whole Church,

Sure in faith, strong in hope, perfect in love.  And when our earthly journey is ended, Lead us rejoicing into your kingdom, where you live forever and ever.  Amen.

LAXITY AND CARELESSNESS IN REGARDING MORALITY AND WORSHIP

The Prophet Malachi attacks the laxity and carelessness that have set in regarding morality and worship.  He specifically takes the Priests to task, berating them for not living up to their calling and thus being responsible for the erosion of faith among the people.  This observation made all those years ago by Prophet Malachi, might it be made in modern day Ireland?  In this weekend’s Gospel we see how strong Jesus was in His criticism of those who use religion to gain spiritual power and who do not live in what is at the heart of religion – LOVE, COMPASSION, JUSTICE AND FAITH.  Matthew, in his Gospel that we reflect on this weekend applies it to Christian leaders, who are in danger of repeating the mistakes of the Pharisees.  Make no mistake about it; the message is as relevant now as it was back then.  Religious office holders are still reluctant to let go of ostentatious dress, places of honour, titles and so on, which are contrary to the spirit of the Gospel.  Jesus had some harsh criticism to make on the religious leaders of His time (Priests and Bishops).  He called them hypocrites, because they didn’t practise what they had preached.  Which of us can truthfully say that our deeds match our words?  Therefore, to some extent, all of us are hypocrites.  Each time we celebrate Holy Eucharist (Mass) we are called, loved and appreciated by God to a life of truth and genuine goodness. 

November is a lovely month to come to Eucharist with an honest and humble heart, looking for God’s blessings and help in marking our deeds match our words.  

OUTWARD SHOW

A peacock’s feathers are very colourful.  However, they are worn more for show than for warmth.  The Pharisees wore their virtue for show; they wanted to be seen and praised by others.  They were more concerned with APPEARING to be good than with really BEING good.  Today there is great emphasis on appearance.  The image is more important that the reality.  We may deceive others but we cannot deceive God, so it would be foolish even to try.  We don’t have to put on an outward show or pretend to be what we are not.  All we have to do is try to be true to what we are - God’s sons and daughters.  Lord, help us to shun all falsity and pretence, and to live a life of genuine goodness. Then our deeds will flow from what we are as naturally as good fruit from a good tree.

The meeting will take place at Killarney Racecourse, Ross Road, Killarney on Tuesday 24th October at 7.30pm. The meeting is open to all and is intended to harness community support for this much needed service Irish Community Air Ambulance is a service operated by Irish Community Rapid Response (ICRR), an innovative charity set up 10 years ago to deliver professional pre-hospital and A&E care via a network of volunteer medical professionals. The HEMS helicopter will support the current fleet of ICRR rapid response vehicles and work alongside existing emergency response services.

 

I INVITE YOU TO VISIT OUR WEBSITE, NEW PILGRIM PATH:

 

http://www.newpilgrimpath.ie/website-of-the-week.html

 

Hundreds of millions of us live in what Pope Benedict XVI described as “the digital continent”. The New Pilgrim Path website, which went live on the 1st Sunday of Advent last year, was inspired by Pope Francis’ enthusiasm for the Internet. He urges Christians to “walk the streets of the digital highways... Let us boldly become citizens of the digital world… in order to dialogue with people today and to help them encounter Christ”.

 

New Pilgrim Path is aimed at helping fellow Christian travellers of all denominations to mine the rich resources of the Web in the search for meaning and belonging. Because the choice is so huge and, at times, bewildering, we provide a brief description of every site we have visited. This aims at helping visitors to New Pilgrim Path find the sites that are likely to be relevant and interesting to them at the particular stage of their journey. We have pages devoted to a range of resources, including daily prayer, Divine Office, online retreats, inspirational reflections, spiritual poetry, religious broadcasts, and many others

 

Each week, we feature a “Website of the Week” which we promote through parish newsletters.

                                           CHANGING MINDS AND HEARTS

 

Next weekend marks the 50th Anniversary in the UK of the passing into law of Medical Termination of the

 

Pregnancy Bill of 27th October 1967.  In 2015 alone, there were 185,824 abortions in England and 12,134 in Wales.  Greater access to abortion is hailed by some as liberation.  For those who uphold the dignity of human life from conception, it is a tragedy.  Anyone who has faced the situation personally knows the dilemma created by news of a pregnancy that is unplanned and unwanted.  The pressure to have an abortion may have felt immense.  Little practical support may have been on offer with no sense of visible alternatives.  St. John Paul II wrote many years ago:  

 

             “The Church is aware of the many factors             which may have influenced your decision,              and she does not doubt that in many cases             it was a painful and even shattering decision”

 

The voice of those wounded by abortion are critical for our understanding.  The

 

Church’s Ministry of pastoral care, healing and forgiveness is vital.  As a Church, we remain committed to protecting every human life, including when the other is the minutest of our sisters and brothers.  On this 50thAnni of the Abortion Act in England, Pope Francis reminds us of what is at stake:  

 

 “All life has inestimable value, even the weakest and          most vulnerable, the sick, the old, the unborn and the

 

                              poor are masterpieces of God’s creation, 

 

                              made in His own image, destined to live forever and                                    deserving of the utmost reverence and respect”.

We have excuses for not doing what we know we should do and we have excuses for doing what we shouldn’t do.  Some of these excuses are reasonable, some shabby, but all are effective.  There was a tailor who mended clothes for most of the people in a place very similar to Moyvane and Knockanure, yet he himself went about with his coat in tatters.  To the embarrassment of everyone, he attended Mass each weekend with the awful tattered coat.  One Sunday a friend said to him, “It’s a disgrace that you a respectable tailor, the best in the Parish, should go around in a tattered coat, but more especially wearing it each and every week to Sunday Mass”.  “But what am I to do?” protested the tailor.  “I am a poor man and I have to work all week long to make a living.  Where am I going to find time to mend my own clothes?”  “Look”, said the friend, “here is €30, think of me as one of your customers.  I’m paying you to mend your own coat”.  “Ok! I’ll agree to that”, said the tailor taking the €30.  “You have a deal, thank you very much”.  However, at Mass the following Sunday the tailor had the very same tattered coat.  Nothing done to it.  Extremely annoyed, the friend met him after Mass and said, “Didn’t I give you €30 last Sunday to fix you old tattered coat, so what’s your excuse? You have my €30 and did absolutely nothing to the coat!  Well, what have you to say?”  “What can I do?” he said apologetically.  “When I went home last Sunday I examined my coat, and I realised that I’d be losing money on the job if I did it for a mere €30”.  A man like him will always find an excuse.  Are you good for making excuses?  The Christian has no room for excuses!

 

             WE GET SO MANY INVITATIONS DAILY FROM GOD

 

Each and everyday God invites us in so many ways to join with Him in building up his Kingdom.  However, His invitation is not so much a voice as a tug at our hearts, which we feel very especially at quiet reflective moments in our daily living.  He is calling us into intimacy with Himself.  He is calling us into community with others and at death He invites us into eternal life.  To accept means to admit our need.  Jesus tells us quite strongly that those who act independently of Him are those he refers to as – “Woe to you who are now full, for you will go hungry”, but those who trust, depend and accept His invitation are called “Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be filled and satisfied”.  Remember a sense of something missing in our lives is not a curse but a blessing.  A spiritual hunger is God’s beautiful way of inviting us to His banquet.

                    URGENT APPEAL FROM MOYVANE YOUTH CLUB

 

Moyvane Youth Club are holding their AGM on Wed 4th October in the Marian Hall at 8pm.  A new committee will be put in place at that meeting.  However, commitment and involvement from parents is urgently needed.  Unfortunately if the required number of leaders (volunteers) are not found the Youth Club will not go ahead this year.  That would be an awful pity and a huge loss to our youth.  So parents your support and help is urgently needed.  Thank you.  

 

SUPER CONCERT TO HEARLD THE ARRIVAL OF A NEW CHURCH YEAR

 

December sees the arrival of a new Church year as we celebrate the beautiful season of Advent.  This season invites us to prepare for Christmas in honouring and loving our Saviour Jesus Christ.  

 

On Tuesday 28th Nov at 8pm we will be having a Super Concert with the Three Tenors and Guests.  They will provide us with Advent, Christmas and Secular music and songs to touch our hearts and minds to get us ready for

 

Christmas.  The proceeds of this concert will go towards the restoration fund for both Churches – to help maintain and improve them.  For example five months of our offertory collection goes directly towards heating and electricity in both Churches.  The remaining seven months are taken up with administration and maintenance.  This concert will help us keep the momentum going in bringing both Churches into line with the required health and safety standards.  Tickets available next week. 

 

                                 A DAY TO REMEMBER

 

Today can be a day to remember.  You can make it so.  Today is yours to do with as you see fit.  You can use it, delight in it, accomplish as much as your capabilities permit and enjoy today to the fullest.  Use a portion of today’s 24 hours in a helpful way.  Spend a part of today’s 1440 minutes in meaningful mediation and prayer.  Share some of today’s 86,400 seconds in service to others.  Today will soon disappear.  Make the most of it, for once, it passes, its opportunities will never return.  If you take time each day to pray, play, work, laugh, love profusely and to thank God with all your heart, you will always have a day to remember.  

 

REJOICE IN THE LORD

 

Perhaps one of the most amusing parts of the Mass is when the Celebrant concludes the prayer after the  “OUR FATHER”, with:  “as we await in joyful hope for the coming of Our Saviour, Jesus Christ”.  An array of tight-lipped, grin-faced worshippers accompanies him, as if to mock his words.  Yet we call it a ‘celebration!’  Some have already left Mass, a little like long-awaited dinner guests arriving late and leaving early, impolite if not downright RUDE.  Poor God!  Yet, joy is one of the most common words in the Bible.  There are not many ‘happy’ people in the Bible, but there are joyful ones.  Over 2,000 years ago where did it all go wrong?  How strange that in these ‘good times’ a kind of grimness has taken control of many faces and hearts.  If faces are windows into the soul, what are our features saying about the impact that being a friend of Jesus has on our lives?  It should show – we know that joy is contagious.  Nobody wants to turn Churches into friendship clubs but if the joy of the Lord is truly in you, Christian friendship will be one of the results.  Brothers and sisters of Jesus let us at least be friends to one another! 

 

                                GOD’S GENEROSIY KNOWS NO BOUNDS

 

Isn’t it fantastic that God’s generosity utterly transcends human generosity.  This week’s parable of the workers in the vineyard was aimed at the Pharisees.  These legalistically minded men were critical of Jesus because He befriended sinners and outcasts.  In the parable Jesus faces up to His critics and shows them what God is like.  God is exceptionally generous and full of compassion for the poor and vulnerable.  In that respect the parable is similar to the Prodigal Son, which we will have next weekend.  The call to each of us is to open our hearts to God’s generosity and having experienced it, let it serve as a model for our dealings with others.

THE WISDOM OF A CHILD?

 

“Can you tell me Niamh, who made you?” 

 

“God made part of me”

 

“What do you mean?”

 

“I mean very He made me very little, I grew the rest myself”

 

                                                    THE PROCESS OF FORGIVENESS

 

Our Gospel this weekend deals with a subject which concerns us all – FORGIVENESS.  Jesus asks us to forgive “SEVENTY TIMES SEVEN”, which means forgiveness must be unlimited.  There is no point in being glib about forgiveness or pretending that it is easy.  It is never easy.  Without the grace of God it is sometimes impossible when we get hurt, we naturally grow resentful and bitter.  Resentment and bitterness are very dangerous things and we cannot be healed of them unless we forgive.  But we must remember that forgiveness is a process and like all processes it takes time.  There are steps we can take which with the grace of Jesus will lead to forgiveness and healing of hurt.  

 

             Recognise that a wrong has been done to us.  There is no point in pretending it didn’t     happen.

 

             Recognise that we have feelings about this – feelings of anger and hurt.  These feelings     are not sins in fact they are natural and healthy.

 

             Talk about these feelings.  If we can’t do this with the person who has hurt us, we should     do with someone else.

 

             Make a decision to forgive.  Forgiveness is an act of the will, but this doesn’t mean that feelings of hurt and bitterness will suddenly disappear.  The healing of these will take time.   Finally, we have to make a decision about our relationship with the person who has hurt us.  We have three choices:  

 

(a)  To continue it    (b)  Break it off for a while    (c)  Discontinue it altogether

 

Reconciliation is not always possible. It takes time to be reconciled.  We need to pray for the gift of forgiveness.  Unless we forgive we will not be able to let go of bitterness and resentment and so will not know a place of healing.  Forgiveness doesn’t mean forgetting. It means remembering and letting go.  Forgiveness is a holy task.  Only Jesus can help us to accomplish it fully.

 

OUR GUARDIANS

 

Some weeks into another school year and I have seen children of all ages going and coming from school.  Some are infants just getting used to the whole idea of school;  some are juniors confidently striding along and some are older girls and boys proudly setting off in their new Secondary School uniforms.  I am reminded of a story about visitors to an ancient city who asked to meet the guardians there.  First of all they were taken to the palace, but the visitors indicated that it was not what they intended.  Then they headed for the military headquarters but again the visitors  said “No, these are not the guardians of the city”.  “Well who do you want to see?” asked the people.  “Take us to the teachers”,  was the reply, “they are the guardians of the city”.  Someone once said that if you are a teacher you are eternal for what you are and what you do lives on in the children who pass through your hands. So this weekend we salute all our teachers for all the valuable marks they make upon a child’s mind which time will never erase. May Jesus continue to guide and bless all our teachers.  Well done to all of you.

UPDATE ON MAINTENANCE WORKS IN OUR CHURCH THIS SUMMER:

 

The Parish Finance Council is happy to announce the completion of some maintenance works which were carried out in St. Mary’s Church over the past number of weeks.

 

1.            Restoration of the stained Glass Window on your right within the Sanctuary area. This window had been leaking water and was warped. It was repaired where glass was broken and completely re-leaded and is looking splendid.

 

2.            The left had door at the back of the church has been made wheel-chair assessable. Those wish to open it electronically should press the wheel chair button once on entrance and again on exiting.

 

3.            The  images that were part of the old pulpit that was in our church previously, have been completely restored and names placed underneath  on the pillars in the upper half of the church. This work was carefully carried out meticulously out by our own Jan Wolanski, Woodford. It is great that the remains of this old pulpit have been preserved and returned rightfully back to our church.

 

Please view the above works in your own time and it has been possible only because of your own on-going generosity in supporting to your church. There are a number of other stained glass windows that need repairing and they will be done on a phased basis as we can afford it. Well done to you all!                   Thanks – Fr. Declan

ONLY PASSING THROUGH

 

Some weeks ago I set out for a country walk back in Loop Head in West Clare and I lost my way.  On a lonely track I came upon a lovely old cottage and decided to ask for directions.  With beautiful quiet courtsey an elderly woman invited me in for a cup of tea and home-made scone.  I was taken aback to see how simply she lived and how barely her room was furnished – just a table, two wooden chairs and an old iron bed in the corner.  “You seem so happy, yet you have so little”, I said.  “Where is all your furniture?”  “Where is yours?” she said with a delightful smile.  “Mine?” I echoed in surprise.  “Why should I have any here? I’m just passing through!”  The old lady smiled again.  “So am I”, she said quietly.  Being able to realise that all of us are only passing through ought to encourage us to live as Jesus taught us.  The old lady back near Loop Head didn’t have much, but in another sense she had what money couldn’t buy.  Our weekend Mass celebrations are a continual challenge to all of us to allow the love, presence and touch of Jesus to help us in living better lives.  It gives us time in a nice way not to forget that we are “just passing through!”

 

‘AFTER THE RACES’…….!

 

I know we have to consider the serious and solemn as we go through life, but has it ever occurred to you that it would be foolish to take life so solemnly that we stop enjoying life’s pleasures – the opportunity to fall in love, to enjoy friendships, to help others, to smell a rose, to attend the Races with a smile, to talk nicely…….  Perhaps Oscar Hammerstein, who wrote the enchanting musical ‘OKLAHOMA!’ expressed it more succinctly:  

 

“I KNOW THE WORLD IS FILLED WITH TROUBLES AND MANY INJUSTICES, BUT REALITY IS A

 

BEAUTIFUL AS IT IS UGLY.  I THINK IT IS JUST AS IMPORTANT TO SING ABOUT ‘BEAUTIFUL MORNINGS’ AS IT IS TO TALK ABOUT SLUMS.  I JUST COULDN’T WRITE ABOUT ANYTHING WITHOUT HOPE IN IT”.

 

‘Race Week’ is so special to Listowel and North Kerry.  There is great hope and joy around the place.  Please God the weather will be nice.  Enjoy ‘Race Week’ safety and blessings to all.  

 

FROM A DESERT INTO A GARDEN

 

“Oh that today you would listed to his voice, harden not your heart”.  Can I tell you from a spiritual point of view, hardness of heart is one of the worst things that can happen to anyone.  To adopt a hard-hearted attituded is to maim oneself.  

 

A hard heart can’t feel, can’t respond, can’t love. 

 

A hard heart can’t experience joy.

 

A hard heart is a closed heart.

 

A hard heart is a barren heart.

 

A soft heart on the other hand, is a God given blessing.  A soft heart can receive and can respond.  It can be saddened but it can also be delirously happy.  Softened by the rain of God’s grace and warmed by the sunshine of His love.  With God on our side the human heart can be turned from a desert into a beautiful garden.  

 

TRAFFIC CONFUSION CONTINUES

 

Having offered space in this Newsletter to the Contractors who are laying the pipes for the gas link to Listowel, the offer has been rejected.  Having put back our printing time to 1pm on Friday, to facilitate up to date informtaion with regards the roads that would be open for the weekend, no information was forth coming.   As work ceases on Saturday’s and Sunday’s confusion abounds as to whether roads are open or closed.   The only information through local radio we can pass onto you is that correct up-to-date signs will be in place this Monday!   Is the confusion getting worse?

 

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION 2018:  In Knockanure on Sat 5th May 11am;  Moyvane Sat 26th May 11am.   It has always been the custom that Knockanure is the first Saturday in May and Moyvane the last in May.  This will give parents an opportuntiy to plan  ahead  for future Communions as we will be strictly be adhering to these dates for the coming years.   Thank you.

FRANCISCAN FRIARY, KILLARNEY From September to December the Franciscan Province of Ireland will run a series of free concerts at our Friaries around the country as a thank you to all the people who have supported the work and ministry of the Franciscans both locally and at national level.  We are inviting Franciscan hearted people to join us in creating a hope filled world where “we bring joy where there is sadness, hope where there is despair, faith where there is doubt”. The concerts will highlight the need to care and nurture all of creation.  We have commissioned a new composition of the Canticle of Creation written by St. Francis of Assisi.  The Canticle is a hymn of praise that inspired Pope Francis in his second encyclical ‘Laudato si’ which he wrote on June 18, 2015.  The composer is Vincent Kennedy and the concert will be performed by Vincent and Marina Cassidy (harp and vocals). The date for the concert in Killarney is… Friday 15th September in Franciscan Friary, Killarney at 7pm.

    DEVELOPING 

 

A GROWN UP FAITH

 

 

 

Mixed emotions after Kerry’s exit from the All-Ireland Championship last weekend.  On the one hand being generous in wishing Mayo well,while on the other hand a sense of relief that Kerry will not be taking on the Dubs in the final as the Dubs look unbeatable.  However, one thing is certain that football is in a very good state in the Kingdom, just wait and see the Minors heading for four-in-a-row in Croker in a few weeks time.  The county is very blessed to have such a wonderful GAA family.  Those exceptional people with a tremendous passion and pride for the GAA are so willing to give of their time, wisdom, guidance and encouragement to the youth at the very start of their journey in the GAA family.  Colm Gooch Cooper started off in his Club all those years ago as a tiny mascot, some said he was so small and tiny that the only thing he could contribute to the Club would be to gather the jerseys and bring the ball.   In fact he went as a mascot with the Crokes for their All-Ireland Final in Croke Park only to be refused admittance by GAA officials onto the pitch.  But his determination and that of his Club ensured he got onto the pitch.  He kicked a few balls into   the Hill 16 end both over and under the bar and he loved it and as you know the rest is history!!

 

If one was to use a similar analogy to Adult Faith Development in the Catholic Church it’s obvious that we have failed miserably.  First Holy Communion and Confirmation days, while they are big occassions and very well celebrated, for most who take part in them their faith stays at that level as they go through life.  This would be equivilant to leaving children and juvenelliles  with childlike skills as they head towards senior football.  

 

                                 FEWER PRIESTS AND PRIESTLESS PARISHES

 

With fewer and fewer Priests and with some Parishes being asked to function without a resident Priest, we are at crisis point.  Put simply, the crisis is this – how to invisage spiritual and sacramental leadership in the total absence of Priests.  It is imperative that this crisis has to be faced with truth and transparency.  Preparing for the World Meeting of Families with Pope Francis in Dublin next August, gives us all the opportunity to start an honest conversation about developing ‘A Grown Up Faith’.  

 

ADULT FAITH DEVELOPMENT

 

Catechising the youth has been a central feature of that much bandied about word ‘Evangelisation’ in Ireland for many years.  We invest quite heavily in the process with the naïve expectation that if we get them young enough and indoctrinate them well – we’ll have their faith alegiance from there on. It is all too obvious that this approach is a distasterous failure.  Faith development belongs primariarly to the home;  if it is not nurtured well there all formal education on earth is not likely to compensate.  I think the focus for future needs to be on adults and not on children.  The passing on of a mature and integrated faith can only happen when adults  have appropriated the fatih in a more adult way.  Parents will then be well informed as to how to pass the faith on rather than looking to educational establishements to facilitate the process on their behalf.  Shortly we will be getting guidelines from the Diocese as how best to prepare for the Pope’s visit.  We all have a contribution to make.  After the Races there will be a meeting with our Pastoral Council and it would be great if we could get six parents from Knockanure and six from Moyvane coming together with a view to preparing well for the World Meeting of Families.  If you would like to be involved please come to this meeting or you may wish to have a word with Amanda, Chairperson of the Pastoral Council, Jacqueline in the Parish Office or myself.  Let’s get talking, thinking and praying about the World Meeting of Families and as with the Kerry teams the greater the preparation results in victory for teams and their supporters.  

 

MEETING FOR RETURNED LAY MISSIONARIES & VOLUNTEERS:  Have you ever worked overseas as a

 

volunteer or lay missionary in Africa, Asia or South America?  Join us for our first meeting which takes place on Wednesday, Sep 13th @ 7.30 p.m. in the John Paul 11 Pastoral Centre, Killarney.  Further info from jim.farrell@amri.ie or phone/text 083 8422468 to confirm attendance.

REMINDER: FUNERALS IN THE DIOCESE OF KERRY AS FROM SEPTEMBER 2017: From Diocesan communications through the media over the last few months you will be aware that from the 1st September 2017, there will unfortunately be no funerals (Mass, Liturgy or burial) on a Sunday in the parishes of the diocese.

 

             This change is necessary for many reasons: related to good Liturgy; related to factors in individual parishes; and related to the availability of priests;

 

             This applies from Saturday mid-afternoon; Removals to the church can take place on either Saturday or Sunday evening;

 

             This will apply to Christmas Day and St Patrick’s Day also. On the other Holy Days of Obligation for flexibility reasons the decision is left to the local parish (while discouraging such funerals for liturgical reasons);

 

             All 111 churches in our 53 Parishes are reminded that there will be no exceptions to this diocesan regulation;

 

‘I realise many will have reservations about this decision. It has been taken after extensive consultation with laity and clergy throughout the Diocese’

Peter has been called a stumbling Saint.  He is a great consolation to us because courage fails us all.  All of us are mere mortals, who are inconstant in our beliefs.  We must learn to forgive our momentary weaknesses and failures.  We need to surmount these things and see the world in less rigid terms.  We must not judge ourselves or others by momentary inconsistencies, but rather by commitment given over a long time.  Jesus was well aware of Peter’s faults, but He saw that, in spite of everything, Peter’s heart was sound.  He may be named the ‘Stumbling Saint’ but he had the fantastic ability to love and in the long run love is what counts.  Absolutely!

 

                                                            PLEASE FORGIVE……

 

“Forgive anyone who has caused you pain or harm. Keep in mind that forgiving is not for others.  It is for you.  Forgiving is not forgetting.  It is remembering without anger.  It frees up your power, heals your body, mind and spirit.  Forgiveness opens up a pathway to a new place of peace where you can persist despite what has happened to you”.  Aren’t they powerful words written by Les Brown.  They will be more beautiful and powerful if we can make them our very own.  Please God we will.

 

WEATHER FAILED TO SPOIL VINTAGE FUN

 

Well done to the Committee and all who braved the elements last Sunday to come to the Vintage in Knockanure. 

 

Please God the weather will be kinder next year.

 

                           WOULD IT HAPPEN TODAY?

 

Jesus chose Peter to be the very first Pope.  Though Peter had strengths he also had weaknesses.  We too have weaknesses.  When those weaknesses cause us to fail, Jesus forgives us and helps us to go forward again.  Would Peter be chosen in our modern Church of today?  His weaknesses would be viewed as his downfall.  But as ever Jesus looks lovingly beyond our weaknesses!  Let Jesus & Peter bless us this week with peace and courage in living with our weaknesses.

 

               WHEN……?

 

                 When you kneel down to God,                  He stands up for you.

 

                 When He stands up for you,                   no one can stand against you.  

 

                 When God is with us who can be against us.  Amen. 

 

           PUSH AND PULL

 

It used to be cynically said of Irish Society that the only requirements to success in life were found written on every door – ‘push’ and ‘pull’.  Things have changed, yet people are still people.  It helps to know and be known.  That’s how doors get opened or rather that’s how doors get opened in this world, but what about the world to come?  Will a well-placed relative get you past St. Peter?  Is there a secret password, membership card, letter of introduction that will open the gates of heaven?  Jesus lovingly has the answers.  Admission says Jesus has nothing to do with who you know, where you come from even how perfectly you’ve kept to the straight and narrow.  It’s all about trying our best to enter by the narrow door.  It calls for a faith that is clear, focused and disciplined, not settling for what is but insisting on what should be.  It’s demanding what’s right, fair, good and pure when others shrug ‘close enough’.  It’ not too late.  The door is narrow but it is open.  

 

                             CIARRAÍ ABÚ – TAKE TWO!!

 

Good luck and best wishes to all parishioners travelling to Croke Park this Saturday for the eagerly awaited replay.  Great football was served up in the first game, here’s hoping the replay is as good!  Best wishes and blessings to the teams, mentors and their families.  Will Kerry hold onto their record of being impossible to beat in a replay? 

 

Up the Kingdom!!

HOW DO YOU REACT TO SOMEONE BEGGING?

 

Our Gospel this weekend is a strange one, and yet it is one that all of us are familiar with.  It involves an encounter with a beggar.  True, the Canaanite woman was not begging for money, but she was begging, begging for a favour.  At one time or another all of us have been approached by a beggar, either at our doorstep or on a public street.  I often wonder how Jesus would deal with these kind of situations.  Jesus and his pals (the Apostles) had withdrawn to the region of Tyre and Sidon, which was Gentile country.  It seems that He had gone there for a break.   However, no sooner had He arrived there than He was accosted by a pagan woman who pestered Him to cure her sick daughter.  How do we react when we encounter someone begging?  I think it would be fair to say that few of us come out of such an encounter with credit.  Generally we refuse to help, convincing ourselves that it is better not to give them anything because in giving we are only encouraging a begging mentality.  However, we can draw some comfort from the Gospel story.  The Apostle’s reaction was not unlike our own.  For them the Canaanite woman was a nuisance.  They just wanted Jesus to get rid of her, and as quickly as possible.  Indeed, Jesus’ own reaction surprises us.  At first He ignored her.  Then He refused her and tried to put her off.  However, she was a very determined lady and refused to take NO for an answer.  Finally, He granted her request.  This is a great reminder to us not to ignore the cry of the poor.  Let’s stop seeing them as a nuisance.  The encounter for Jesus touched His Heart.  We must let such encounters awaken feelings of tenderness, kindness and compassion in our hearts too.  It shows us what we are capable of doing with the blessings and touch of Jesus.  It shows us that it is possible to be more, to love more and to give of ourselves more.  It can change us.    It calls us to humanity.  Thus it can lead to a new beginning.  Before God all of us are poor.  His love and generosity to us is overwhelming.  Thankfully, He never views any of us a nuisance.  Let us imitate Him.

 

                                                                        NOTICES

 

CHIROPODIST: In the Marian Hall on Fri 25th Aug at 10am.  To book phone Eileen Quinn on 43472.

 

GREAT NEWS:  Many of our young parishioners have informed us of good results in the Leaving Cert.  It’s great that they came back to say thanks for the prayers and Masses offered in our Parish.  We wish them well in their new beginnings. 

 

61 ON FRIDAY:  Our Church in Moyvane – ‘The Church of the Assumption’ will be 61 years young on Friday next August 25th.  Mass of thanksgiving at 7.30pm (see Mass intention section).

 

PAINTING FUND:  Many thanks to two anonymous donations to our Painting Fund amounting to €300.  Also we have received €700 voucher towards the purchase of paints.  Very many thanks.

 

EXPERT’S VIEW……..CRITICAL EYE!

 

A young man I know is a very keen gardener.  His plot is not very big, but is full of lovely tended plants and callers rarely depart without a buttonhole or generous gift of fruit or vegetables.  He told me recently that he likes getting visitors but there is one he dreads to see dropping in.  “I know he’s an expert on gardening”, he said, “but he always leaves me feeling depressed.  You see, he always manages to notice some weeds that I’ve overlooked”.  On my way home, I mulled over those words.  Wouldn’t the world seem a more beautiful place if we all took more notice of the flowers and a lot less of the weeds?

 

TIME FOR CREATION (1st September to 4th October)

 

Brochures from the Diocese for ‘Time for Creation’ are available at all Masses this weekend please take them home.   These brochures aim to stimulate reflection and action in parishes and homes.  While each Parish is expected to have their own local events we draw your attention to the following public events that are happening all over the Diocese.

 

             Diocesan Prayer service to commemorate World Day of Care for Creation in Tralee Town Park @ 6.45pm on Friday 1st September;

 

             An evening on “Reducing Food Waste and Composting: simple practical ways with Donal O’Leary” @ 8pm in John Paul II Pastoral Centre, Killarney on Tuesday 12th September;

 

             A cookery demonstration with Mark Doe “Being Creative with Leftovers” @ 8pm in St. Brendan’s Pastoral Centre, Tralee on Thursday 28th September.
