“Don’t Blame God”

Man not following the Rule of God’s government is the very reason that evil exists in the world. It always has been and always will be. The source of all suffering and misery is Satan. The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that Satan was first a good angel, made by God: “The devil and the other demons were indeed created naturally good by God, but they became evil by their own doing”. (391).

At a time when we are witnessing so many evil acts within the world, within the community and within the family, it is important to understand the source of it: the father of lies, Satan. But we have nothing to fear if we follow the path of the Lord, who has defeated him. This is why we should wear blessed objects, use Holy Water and realise the importance of prayer, personnel prayer and community prayer.

 

Day of Prayer:

The Wednesday night Prayer Group have organised a day of prayer for Saturday, September 19th, 10.00am to 5.00pm. The event will be held in the Town Hall. The Vincentian Fr. Pat Collins will lead the day of prayer. The theme of the day of prayer is: “St. Thérése of Lisieux – a Saint for our troubled times”. As you may know the parents of St. Thérése are to be Beatified in October. Fr. Collins is a well known National and International speaker and works very much in the healing and exorcist ministry.

All attending are asked to bring a packed lunch and we are assured of an uplifting day, giving us hope for the future. Spread the word.  Click here for poster.

 

National Eucharistic Congress:

A National Eucharistic Congress will take place at Knock Shrine 26th – 27th September coming. The Themes of the Congress are: Marriage and the Family, Consecrated Life and the upcoming Jubilee of Mercy. Details: www.nec2015.ie

The Eucharist is the very Heart of the Church and we are called anew to believe, love and adore Jesus in the Eucharist. Let us reflect on the beautiful, yet sad words that Jesus spoke to the Portuguese Blessed Alexandrina:

“Keep me company in the Blessed Sacrament. I remain in the tabernacle night and day, waiting to give my love and grace to all who would visit me. But so few come. I am so abandoned, so lonely, so offended…. Many…do not believe in my existence; they do not believe that I live in the tabernacle. They curse me. Others believe, but do not love me and do not visit me; they live as if I were not there… You have chosen to love me in the tabernacles where you can contemplate me, not with the eyes of the body, but those of the soul. I am truly present there as in Heaven, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.” (Died October 13th 1955)
