Weekly Bulletin 25th February 2024

Today is the Second Sunday of Lent. Trust in the Lord is the theme that links all this week’s readings. As we continue our Lenten journey, we are reminded of the extent of the Lord’s love and generosity – if we but listen to his voice and place our trust in him. In the First Reading (Genesis 22:1-18)we see the depth of Abraham’s trust in God as he is asked to sacrifice his beloved son. Abraham’s faithfulness is rewarded with more blessings than he could ever have imagined. In the Second Reading, (Romans 8:31-34)echoing the story of Abraham and Isaac, St Paul challenges us to recall the immensity of God’s love for the world in giving up his Son. With Jesus standing at the right hand of God pleading for us, we can have confidence in placing all our trust in him. In the Gospel, (Mark 9:2-10) Jesus asks Peter, James and John to trust him and not speak of the wonder of what they have witnessed on the mountain top. One of the most comforting readings today comes from our second reading. It claims “With God on our side who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31). Over the centuries, Paul’s Letter to the Romans has been regarded as one of the most influential. Up to 28 extracts from it are read over the three years of the Sunday Lectionary, with Chapter 8 quoted more often than any other. In this chapter, Paul tells of how the whole of creation is being renewed. God loves us and his Spirit will triumph over all difficulties. Paul’s language reflects that of the law courts: God is our judge, but he is on our side. The series of rhetorical questions (to which no answer is required or expected) are the sort a legal prosecutor would use for dramatic effect. In Lent, we are invited to integrate faith and life. As we look at the world today, with its countless problems – our troubled Church, the climate emergency, the slaughter in the Holy Land, in Ukraine and elsewhere, widespread corruption, injustice, and avoidable suffering – we long for a better world, in which God’s presence is honoured, not ignored. The Church proposes three God-centred practices to help us: (1) prayer – listening to God more attentively; (2) fasting – being ready to move out of our comfort zones so as to be more aware of our need of God; and (3) almsgiving – sharpening our practical concern for God’s favourite people: the poor, the sick, those in any kind of need. Pope St. Leo the Great said: “Since Jesus has taken upon Himself all the infirmity of our humanity, in Him, we shall overcome what He has overcome, and receive what He has promised, provided that we persevere in faith and love of Him. And so, my beloved, that we may do what He has told us to do, and bear our trials in patience, we should have ever in our ears the voice of the Father telling us: “This is my Son, the Beloved. Listen to Him” (Sermon 51)

Weekly Bulletin 18th February 2024

Today is the First Sunday of Lent: Last Wednesday many of us had ashes smeared on our foreheads. This outward sign, a cross-mark on the forehead, is a symbol of our willingness to make an inward change in our lives. I know many people who are not known for their Church-going wish to attend this ancient ceremony of receiving ashes on their foreheads.  The use of ashes speaks into something deep within us,  – it is archetypal. It speaks into the reality of who we are: –  human, vulnerable, fragile and finite.  Lent is that sacred time, where we become aware that we are constantly called to conversion and to renewal of life. It is also a moment when we promised to enter more deeply into our journey as a disciple of Jesus. Today we listen to the Gospel of Mark where Jesus is being tempted in the wilderness.(Mark 1:12-15).  Just before Jesus goes into the desert to be tempted by Satan He is baptised in the River Jordan by John the Baptist.  A voice comes from heaven and states: “You are my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on you (Mark 1:11) What does it mean to be a Son of God? The devil has some suggestions for Jesus. His identity as God’s Son is put to the test in the wilderness. The wilderness has always been a symbol for the encounter between the naked self and God. This is because the desert or the wilderness is so bald, so barren, so vast, so primeval, so unforgiving, so basic, so hand-to-mouth that because one must concentrate on simply surviving, all distractions are filtered out, and one is left alone with oneself. Going into the desert, the desert journey, has become a metaphor for leaving all behind and, in our utter exposure and honesty, confronting who and what we are and what really matters. Being laid low with illness is referred to often as a desert or wilderness experience. Lent is that collective desert experience for all of us. Our awareness of our identity as followers of Jesus Christ can get lost in the hurly burly of life. As a society we suffer from a kind of psychic and emotional jet-lag: we never quite catch up with ourselves.  We live in the society of the sound–bite, reactions to events rather that sound reflection, – has our face book, snapchat, face time, messenger generation given us time to think in this age of emoting and sensationalism? Many young people are drawn to measure self-esteem in likes, social media re-sharing, followers, and other virtual entrancing reactions/distractions of the online world. Lent is a time when we have the opportunity to re-discover our true identity. Our true identity is not found in things or possessions but in the truth and reality of our lives as a baptised child of God. We read in the Preface of today’s Mass:“By abstaining forty long days from earthly food, He consecrated through his fast the pattern of our Lenten observance and, by overturning all the snares of the ancient serpent taught us to cast out the leaven of malice so that, celebrating worthily the Paschal Mystery, we might pass over at last to the eternal paschal feast”

Weekly Bulletin 11th February 2024

Today is the Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Today is also Temperance Sunday and it’s also the Sunday before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. It’s a good time to reflect on our lifestyle, our social activities, the way we spend money, the habits of indulgence and the various addictions that can take hold of our lives. Perhaps it’s a good time to think about a few terms that nowadays might be considered unpopular and even old fashioned eg self-denial, personal sacrifice, abstinence, self-discipline and penance. On Temperance Sunday each year, we’re encouraged to think about the importance of being temperate in all things, not just in relation to our consumption of food and drink. Today also is the World Day of Prayer for the Sick. It takes place on the 11 February the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. In the 150 years history of Lourdes only 67 miracles have been officially recognised. The town receives an impressive five million pilgrims and visitors each year, making Lourdes the most visited Christian shrine in the world. It is estimated that more than 200 million pilgrims have visited Lourdes since 1860. To place miracles at the heart of Lourdes would be a misconception. What is central is not the miraculous but a prayerful hopeful and vibrant pilgrim community in that holy place asking the Lord for healing and peace. This Wednesday is also Ash Wednesday the beginning of the season of Lent. On that day we recognise that we are dust. We are always in the process of dying. We are the only beings who know about this, that we are bound for death. Scripture tells us that we are like grass in the field, like an empty puff of air. But the good news of salvation rings out. “The Word became flesh’. God has placed the dust of the earth on His own head. He has become flesh, flesh that suffers even unto death. Christianity is without doubt the earthiest of all religion. Unlike most other religions it doesn’t call you out of the physical, out of the body or out of the world. Rather it tells you that God enters the physical, becomes one with it, blesses it, redeems it, and that there is no reason to escape from it. With the coming of Christ life has changed. “Remember that you are dust” in these words we are told everything that we are: – nothingness that is filled with eternity, death that teems with life; dust that is God’s life for ever.  May we all have a blessed Lent! 

Feasts of the Week: WednesdayAsh Wednesday. The beginning of the Lenten Season. Ashes will be distributed at the 12 noon and 7:00 pm Masses.

Weekly Bulletin 4th February 2024

Today is the Fifth Sunday of the Year: In the first reading today from the book of Job (7:1-4, 5-7) we hear a man crying out in anguish to God. He is a man who has lost everything – his family, health, friends, prosperity, good fortune – and lost it all for reasons he could not fathom. His prayer mirrors the experience in our world today of many whose lives have been blighted by war, famine, sickness and financial woes. He complains to God, “Swifter than a weaver’s shuttle my days have passed and vanished leaving no hope behind” (Job 7:6) Suffering is an enigma, a puzzle, all too often inexplicable and senseless. It permeates the whole of creation and raises questions about guilt and responsibility, justice and mercy, living and dying, and – the biggest question of all – why? Human suffering is the hurting part of life. We try hard to avoid suffering but we cannot; our struggling often leads to further suffering. Suffering accompanies life. The spiritual writer Romano Guardini’s  (1885-1968) description of suffering as a shoreless ocean illustrates its inescapable presence. Suffering is not always visible. The calmest appearance can mask great inner turmoil. Like the ocean, with its heaving, rolling waves or turbulent currents deep beneath the most tranquil surface, life carries suffering. How we meet and cope with suffering will define our whole approach to life. Jesus made no attempt to eradicate all suffering. Jesus was not a social reformer, intent on ridding the world of its aches and pains. He had another agenda altogether. He neither ignored suffering nor fled from it. Rather he entered into suffering, his own and the sufferings of others. In this way he exposed the mystery of suffering as a positive healing gift. When we embrace suffering, encounter and befriend it, we can experience an amazing transformation. The disease may not disappear, the heartbreak may not mend, the physical or emotional pain may still persist, but we discover an inner peace that changes attitudes of denial and anger to acceptance, patience and compassion. This healing can be so much richer than any actual cure. Saint Teresa of Calcutta, who died in 1997, tells us: “True love causes pain. Jesus, in order to give us the proof of his love, died on the cross. A mother, in order to give birth to her baby, has to suffer. If you really love one another, you will not be able to avoid making sacrifices”. All suffering is hard and, at the time, seemingly pointless and unrewarding. “I know that my Redeemer lives”, (Job 19:25) is possibly the best known quote from the Book of Job. But it is not the heart of Job’s story; it is rather the beginning and the end. Like book-ends, this expression of faith holds Job together: a good and just man, Job’s life is blessed by God; but then disaster strikes, plunging Job into darkness; slowly he recognises God’s presence and re-emerges into the light. We speak of someone as having “the patience of Job,” meaning they put up with so much. Here patience is most evidently relating to suffering, and is not simply a connection with time. Patience and love come together with great poignancy through Job’s encounter with suffering which challenged, threatened and finally reaffirmed his relationship with God. From the Psalm Reading at Mass today: The Lord …heals the broken hearted, he binds up all their wounds” (Psalm 146)

Feasts of the WeekMonday St. Agatha died a martyr in Sicily in 3rd century. Tuesday: St. Paul Miki and Companions: These were martyred in Nagasaki Japan in 1597. The six Franciscans, seventeen Franciscan Tertiaries, and three Jesuits died suspended on crosses. Thursday: St. Josephine Bakhita (1868-1947) a native of Sudan brought as a slave to Italy where she became a Christian. Today is also International Day of Prayer and Awareness against Human Trafficking. Saturday: St. Scholastica who died in 543 AD and was a sister of St. Benedict. She spent her life as a consecrated virgin. Friday: In the Passionist calendar today, it is our custom on the Friday before Ash Wednesday, to celebrate the Commemoration of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Weekly Bulletin 28th January 2024

Today is the Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time: When certain people speak we refuse to take them seriously. Why? Because for us their words carry no authority. When Christ spoke, all open-minded people listened. Why was this? Because he spoke with authority. The people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law. (Mark 1:22).His words have a ring of truth and people knew that he meant them. In today’s Gospel (Mark 1:21-28), far from being disturbed by Jesus’ authority, as the religious leaders were, the people were greatly impressed by it. They were all amazed, Mark tells us, and kept asking one another, “What is this? A new teaching, with authority.” Jesus spoke and acted with the authority of God. For those who had eyes to see and ears to hear, it was a liberating authority. We all need an authority of some sort as a reference point in life. The real issue is who or what will we take as our authority. The gospels assures us that it is Jesus who embodies the authentic authority of God, an authority that empowers us to become fully human and fully alive. The people in the synagogue knew authority when they saw it – as the centurion did in St. Matthew’s Gospel: “For I am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to one, “Go” and he goes and to another, “Come” and he comes, and to my slave, “Do this” and the slave does it” (Matthew 8:9). The higher Spirit of God who descended upon Jesus at his baptism, was the source of this authority “And when he came up out of the water, immediately, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit descending upon him like a dove…” (Mark 1:10). The Spirit of God leads His mission and does not allow lesser beings to harm those whom God loves. It commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man possessed…”Jesus said sharply, “Be quiet! Come out of him!” (Mark 1:25).It’s proof that Jesus’ authority wasn’t just a claim. He actually had the power he said he had. The kingdom of God truly was at hand. No one else could drive the unclean spirit away. No one else had the authority of Jesus. In driving out devils Jesus shows that in the reign of God there is no room for oppressive evil forces which weigh down on God’s children. No one should have to live in hell. Jesus is in agony until the end of the world, standing with us against all forms of addiction, exploitation, violence and abuse. No one is too far gone for God to save. Because the kingdom of God is at hand, even the demon-possessed have a chance! It also means this: Jesus has the authority to change us!

Weekly Bulletin 21st January 2024

Today is the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time: Today is the beginning of Catholic Schools Week and it is also the Sunday that is dedicated to the Word of God. The first celebration of “Sunday of the Word of God” occurred on January 26, 2020. Pope Francis in his letter establishing this day highlights the link between the Word of God and the sacraments, the emphasis placed on Scripture by Vatican II, the importance of study of Sacred Scripture. The January timing of the observance means that it will occur near the week of prayer for Christian Unity and commemorations for Holocaust Memorial Day. Pope Francis said “This Sunday of the Word of God will thus be a fitting part of that time of the year when we are encouraged to strengthen our bonds with the Jewish people and to pray for Christian unity” In the Gospel (Mark 1:14-20), the call of the disciples is undertaken after Jesus announces “ “The time has come, and the kingdom of God is close at hand. Repent and believe the Good News”  The people of the city of Nineveh heard the word of God from the prophet Jonah in today’s first reading (Jonah 3:1-10) and they changed their behaviour. God’s Word has power. For the people of the Bible –  the Word first of all is ACT – something dynamic, productive, an extension of the person who speaks.  They don’t distinguish between thought and action.  Word is sacramental…it effects what it says! The word has the power to create. When God speaks, God creates. When God says: “Let there be light” (Genesis 1:3) light comes immediately. God’s Word does what God says! There is a little story told in the Irish tradition about a young girl who was sick and the family sent for a holy priest to pray over her. He went into the room where the young girl lay in pain. He said that he would read a piece of Scripture and pray with her. But standing in the room was her uncle who was a professed atheist. He did not believe in God at all. He said to the priest: “What good would that book do?” And the priest turned on him and said to the uncle: “You are a stupid fool; ignorant and uncouth and without any understanding!” The uncle’s face turned red with embarrassment and he began to sweat profusely! And the priest said, with a smile –“Look at how my few words has upset you, how much more can God’s word powerfully work in your sick little niece!”

Feasts of the Week: Wednesday: St. Francis de Sales (1567-1622) Bishop of Geneva. He worked with gentleness and love to rebuild the Catholic faith after the Reformation. Patron saint of journalists, writers & editors.

Thursday: The Conversion of St. Paul – A persecutor of the faith becomes its preacher and teacher. Friday: Saints Timothy & Titus – friends of St. Paul. Timothy was Bishop of Ephesus and Titus organised the Church in Crete.

Weekly Bulletin 14th January 2024

Today is the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time. This Friday is the beginning of the week of prayer for Christian Unity. This annual observance, sponsored jointly by the World Council of Churches and the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity since 1968, invites all Christians everywhere to remember one another in prayer and strengthen the bonds of love and mutual mission we share in Jesus Christ. The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is a response to Christ’s prayer “that they all may be one” (John 17:21). It is an eight-day period of prayer in which all Christians are invited to participate. The week is celebrated each year from January 18-25, concluding on the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul. As our Catechism of the Catholic Church (paragraph 820) puts it: “Christ always gives his Church the gift of unity, but the Church must always pray and work to maintain, reinforce, and perfect the unity that Christ wills for her. (…) The desire to recover the unity of all Christians is a gift of Christ and a call of the Holy Spirit.”  Pope Francis hosted a group of Christian leaders at the end of September last year and he stressed three values for Christians today: (1) to hear God’s voice, (2) to listen to the people of God, and (3) to enter into prayer. We need “to free ourselves from so much noise in order to hear God’s voice. For only in our silence does his word resound.” Francis reminded us that it is only when we fall silent to listen to others that the Holy Spirit is able to “draw together points of view.” And finally, he concluded, silence “is fundamental to prayer, and ecumenism begins with prayer and is sterile without it.”  In the first reading today (1 Samuel 3:10-19) Samuel met the Lord in the temple but he could have missed the moment! The old priest Eli taught him to pay attention …on the third call of God the old priest said: “Go and lie down and if someone calls say; “Speak Lord your servant is listening” (1 Samuel 3:9) When he obeyed the words of the old priest Samuel experienced the closeness of God and his life was changed forever and he continued to pay attention to God all through his life because it says “he let no word of his fall to the ground” ( 1 Samuel 3:19). He paid attention. May we recognise as Christians that what unites us is stronger than what divides us and may we all learn to listen!

Feasts of the Week: Monday: St. Ita. She founded a monastery in Killeedy Co. Limerick which attracted young people. She is given the title of the “foster-mother of the saints of Ireland”. She died in 570. Wednesday: St. Anthony lived a life of solitude. He is called the “Father of Monasticism” He died in 356.

Weekly Bulletin – 7th January 2024

Today is the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord. Today we hear the Father declare about Jesus to the Christian reader of Mark’s Gospel “You are my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on you” (Mark 1:11). As Jesus is about to embark on his public ministry God solemnly affirms both his status and his call.  In this story of the baptism Jesus was not being cleansed from sin – because He is without sin. At His Baptism He was publicly declared to be the One who would carry out his Father’s mission. From this point on, He would be defined as God’s Son, God’s envoy, God’s prophet, God’s lover. “I have come to do the will of Him who sent me” (John 5:30). This was the motto of Jesus at his baptism. His Baptism defined Him. We live in a world today as God’s children that try to define us. Our call to be His disciple can be easily challenged and even obscured. Many are consistently told to be other than what they are – because what they are is not good enough! They – whoever “they” are – tell us our main mission is to be beautiful and feel good about ourselves. We are nothing if we are merely ourselves! Yet that is lie! These opinions subvert altogether any sense of being made in God’s image, touched by the Spirit, affirmed in our identity and dignity at baptism and loved madly by God.  Archbishop Tutu, who died 26 December 2021 from pancreatic cancer, said that his message is simple “It is that “God loves you”. “I tell them that because the entire culture tells them that they are unlovable and I have to give them the message of who they really are, because God loves them”  Our baptism defines us as God’s child and with that privilege also comes the responsibility to be a missionary for Christ. Pope Frances in his Apostolic Exhortation to Young People called “Christ is Alive” on 25 March 2019 quotes from the image used by Blessed Carlos Acutis.  Pope Francis speaks in the context of communication advertising and social networking that can lull us into addicts of consumerism said:  “Carlo didn’t fall into the trap. He saw that many young people, wanting to be different, really end up being like everyone else, running after whatever the powerful set before them with the mechanisms of consumerism and distraction. In this way they do not bring forth the gifts the Lord has given them; they do not offer the world those unique personal talents that God has given to each of them. As a result, Carlo said, “everyone is born as an original, but many people end up dying as photocopies”. Don’t let that happen to you!” (Number 106)

Thank you for your very generous weekend collection. It came to £2555.  We appreciate your kindness and your support.

A word of thanks alsoto our Readers, Ushers, Singers, and Ministers of the Eucharist who help in the smooth running of our religious services.

A word of thanks also for the crib collection for the local St. Vincent de Paul conference in Enniskillen. We will have a final total collected in next weekend’s bulletin.   Your generous out-reach to our neighbours who are struggling with financial difficulties and other issues are noteworthy.  May the Lord bless your magnanimous hearts! 

The Church cleaning group for January will meet to clean our Church after the 7pm Mass on Wednesday 10th January. If you would like to volunteer please leave your name and number at reception.

Weekly Bulletin 31st December 2023

Today is the Feast Day of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Jesus needed a family to grow to maturity.  The Christian community is our wider family.  It reminds us that we have a common Father, and that we are brothers and sisters in Christ.  We cannot reach maturity in isolation from others. The last sentence in today’s Gospel (Luke 2:22-40) states “…meanwhile the child grew to maturity, and he was filled with wisdom; and God’s favour was with him”. We thank God the Father of our human family. His Son, knew like us, the slow pathway of growth. He does not cease to make us grow in His Love. Today we thank God for our families. All parents need to be gently reminded sometimes of the importance of how we raise our children and the impact on their future. The perfect parent doesn’t exist but the little verses below could act as the perfect aide memoire!

If children live with criticism

they learn to condemn

If they live with hostility

they learn to fight

If they live with ridicule

they learn to be shy

If they live with shame

they learn to feel guilty

If they live with tolerance

they learn to be patient

If they live with encouragement 

they learn to have confidence

If they live with praise

they learn to appreciate

If they live with fairness

they learn what justice is

If they live with security

they learn what faith is

If they live with approval

they learn to like themselves

If they live with acceptance and friendship

they learn to find love and God in the world.

The Fourth Sunday of Advent:  This year, the Fourth Sunday of Advent is swallowed up in Christmas Eve. May we  not to lose the riches of this final week of Advent. At any birth we concentrate on the mother who is giving birth. The readings of Mass speak of the new Messiah being a son of David, who is open, not only to one nation, but to the whole world. The Opening Prayer of the Mass today comes from the common prayer that we pray at the Angelus. The Lord is near – this evening, we hold out our suffering world in yearning to the Prince of Peace.

Christmas Day
On behalf of the community and all the staff here at the Graan may I wish you and all your family and loved ones a very happy Christmas. May the year 2024 bring blessings to you in abundance.  

Christmas Day: Pope Leo the Great (400-461) gave this wonderful sermon to the people one Christmas Night – his words are still true for us today who are moving into the year 2024

Around the crib there is no reason for sadness.

The birthday of life which does away with the fear of death,

And gives the joy of the hope of immortality, is what we celebrate.

Christ comes with redemption for all.

Let the saints rejoice: for he hastens to his crown.

Let the sinners be filled with joy: for pardon is offered to him/her.

Let all be encouraged: for all are called to life.

The angel exults at the birth of the Lord and sing:

“Glory to God in high heaven”

They announce:

Peace on earth for people on whom his favour rests.

How greatly ought mere humans to rejoice at this work of the divine love?

When the angels on high thrill so much at it.

Let us give thanks to God the Father who loved us and had pity on us 

When we were dead through sin, and in giving life to Christ has given life to us also.

O Christian be aware of your nobility –

It is God’s own nature that you share:

Do not then by an ignoble life, fall back into your former baseness

Think of the head, think of the body of which you are a member.

Recall that you have been rescued from the power of darkness

And have been transferred to the light of God, the kingdom of God.

Through the sacrament of baptism you have been made a temple of the Holy Spirit;

do not, by evil deeds, drive so great an indweller away from you, submitting yourself once more to the power of evil. 

For you were bought at the price of Christ’s blood. Amen.
