Am I sensitive to how someone is really feeling ?

When Matt Busby died, Denis Law was asked. ‘What’s your greatest memory of Matt Busby?’ He replied ‘His face on the night we won the European Cup’


Our face has often been described as the window to our soul. It is very important. To remember someone is to remember their face. Our face is capable of so many different expressions. We recognoise this with the expressions we use. How often we talk about ‘loosing face’ or ‘saving face’, ‘two faced’, ‘faceless’ and so on. Just as the human face can express so many different things, we often put on a mask disguising how we are feeling. Jesus often looked into the face of those he met. With love and compassion he took down the mask and met that person where they were at. What is my facial expression today and those nearest to me ? Am I sensitive to how someone is really feeling ?

Clonmacnoise Cemetery Mass

Clonmacnoise Cemetery Mass takes place on Saturday 5th August at 7pm.


We would ask that people bring a bottle of Holy Water, as we will each of us at the end gather at our loved one’s resting places. As they blessed us with their lives, we shall return that blessing in our prayer for and with them.

Hope can be the difference between success and failure

They say that a “man can live about forty days without food, about three days without water, about eight minutes without air, but only for one second without hope.” Hope can be the difference between success and failure. You can withstand so much if you know you have people who support you and are looking out for you. You can face just about anything, as long as you don’t lose the hope that you can succeed. Even hope and faith as tiny as a mustard seed can produce mountainous amounts of blessings.
Life is a marathon, not a sprint. Take things a little at time. As it is often said, “In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins…not through strength, but through persistence. Persistence and hope are both keys to success.
Stay focused on Jesus. Be the stream, not the rock. Pray for endurance. Know the Lord has a plan. And finally, be a reflection of hope to the world. Let them know where your hope, faith, and trust lies, sharing the light and hope with them.
