DON'T CRY FOR ME

Don't cry for me now I have died, for I'm still here I'm by your side,

My body's gone but my soul is here, please don't shed another tear,

I am still here I'm all around, only my body lies in the ground.

I am the snowflake that kisses your nose, I am the frost, that nips your toes.

I am the sun, bringing you light, I am the star, shining so bright.

I am the rain, refreshing the earth, I am the laughter, I am the mirth.

I am the bird, up in the sky, I am the cloud, that's drifting by.

I am the thoughts, inside your head,

While I'm still there, I can't be dead. (Anonymous)

Seeing Your Life

Through The Lens of The Gospel

The commitment of Jesus to his mission is shown in his desire to undergo the baptism that awaits him. Have there been times when there was something you greatly hoped for, even though you knew there would be a baptism of fire along the way?

What was it like for you to undergo such a baptism of fire and then arrive at what you desired? 

Jesus recognised that the message he proclaimed would meet with a mixed reception.

This did not hold him back from proclaiming the Reign of God.

When have you seen this kind of courage in yourself, or in others? 

Jesus challenged those listening to him to commit themselves to discipleship, despite opposition from those close to them, even family members.

When have you found that being true to yourself and to your beliefs required such courage?

What was it like for you when you were able to follow that courageous road?

 

BOHERMORE CEMETERY SUNDAY

 

21st AUGUST MASS AT 11 AM

 

Due to space restrictions, only vehicles carrying persons with special needs or displaying a Disabled Persons Disc will be permitted access to the cemetery grounds.

 

Please note that the gates will close to all traffic at 10:00am sharp for traffic management purposes. For safety reasons, vehicles will not be permitted to leave the cemetery for 30 minutes following the Mass. This is to allow for pedestrian exit in the first instance.

This mass will be streamed live via http://studiorove.ie/graveyardmass/

 

Mass bookings outside of office hours.

There are intention slips and envelopes for you to fill out at the

Hold fast to trust in God and stay alert to his presence in your life, Pope Francis said during his Angelus address.

 

“Let us walk without fear, in the certainty that the Lord always accompanies us. And let us stay awake, lest it happen to us that we fall asleep while the Lord is passing by”

 

“At times we feel imprisoned by a feeling of distrust and anxiety,” Francis said. “It is the fear of failure, of not being acknowledged and loved, the fear of not being able to realize our plans, of never being happy, and so on.”

 

“Trust in the Father who wants to give you all that you truly need. He has already given you his Son, his Kingdom, and he will always accompany you with his providence, taking care of you every day.

Do not be afraid — this is the certainty that your hearts should be attached to,” Pope Francis said.

 

Jesus, the pope said, makes two fundamental exhortations to his disciples: to “not be afraid,” and to “be ready.”

 

“There is no need to worry and fret for our lives are firmly in God’s hands,” he said.

 

“But knowing that the Lord watches over us with love does not entitle us to slumber, to let ourselves succumb to laziness.”

 

“We have received so many things. Let us try to ask ourselves: Do we take care of this inheritance the Lord has left us? Do we safeguard its beauty or do we use things only for ourselves and for our immediate convenience?” he said. “We have to think a little about this — are we guardians of the creation that has been given to us?”

 

“St. Augustine said, ‘I am afraid that the Lord passes by and I do not notice;’ of being asleep and not noticing that the Lord passes by,” Francis said.

 

 

 

We would like to express our condolences to the families & friends of

Happy Ebenuwa & Michael Ward whose funeral Masses we celebrated recently.

May they rest softly in God’s Arms.
