Hope

Dare to Believe?

Inspiration …Next Sunday’s Gospel from Matthew speaks about ‘your virtue’ going ‘deeper than that of the Scribes and Pharisees.’  This is prompted a very interesting reflection just a while ago, as Sisters in our Community shared a little, the words of this Gospel with which they have been praying during this week.You will remember that in Luke’s Gospel, when the sisters Martha and Mary welcomed the Lord to their home, Mary sat at his feet and listened to Him (cf Lk 10:38-42).Well, the connection in my head and in my reflection was that Jesus is our virtue – God is our virtue.  We believe and we know that the source of all goodness is in God … in fact is God working in us, with our free desire to be and to do good.  We are not by any means puppets or marionettes!  But the thought that came to […]

Second Week of Advent

The readings for this Sunday are full of hope and enouragement – as we all know, we, Irish people are greatly in need of such hope in our present crises. One can almost feel that these readings were selected specially for us!!! The entrance antiphon which we sing in our community for the Mass of this Second Sunday of Advent expresses very well these sentiments of hope which God’s loving providence provides:People of Zion, the Lord will come to save all nations, and your hearts will exult to hear his majestic voice. The people of God will sing songs of joy, like songs in the night. They will have gladness of heart. People of Sion the Lord will come to save all nations and your hearts will exult to hear his majestic voice. On every high mountain streams will flow and there will be light […]

ADVENT

Advent is one of the most beautiful seasons of the Church’s year. On this first Sunday of Advent we are united with the whole Church throughout the world in praying and longing for the coming of the Lord. We are familiar with the cry of the Prophet Isaias: O that you would tear the heavens open and come down – you are our Father – we the clay, you the potter; we are all the work of Your HandIndeed for over a week now we have seen the heavens open and torrents of rain descend on many parts of our country. Those of us who go to daily Mass have been listening to the readings describing the horrors of the end times. In addition we have been all shocked, saddened and bewildered by the revelations of scandals in our Irish Church. No doubt we carry […]

WORD OF LOVE?

The Readings for this Sunday鈥檚 Eucharist could be said to be difficult 鈥 difficult to understand and difficult to accept 鈥 at least the Reading from the Book of Daniel, and the Gospel from St Mark. Here is just a little 鈥榩iece of my mind鈥 that I would like to share, on the Gospel, as I tried to see a little more than what at first meets the eye.I reminded myself that as I hear: 鈥楾his is the Gospel of the Lord鈥 I must remember that this is a word of love – so if I can鈥檛 find the 鈥榣ove鈥, then I must take a closer look. As we were reminded here during the week, we must not only accept the words of Scripture which appeal to us 鈥 all Scripture, every syllable, is a communication of the love of God to each of us. So […]
