Parents, Children and Drugs: Our children are seriously exposed to drugs in our community. When kids begin experimenting with drugs, they can so easily become dependent and become a source of true anxiety for their parents and family. Parents who have worked their way through these difficulties can give enormous help to other afflicted parents. Parents should be encouraged to help and support one another. As a community we all need to be concerned about the availability of drugs to vulnerable young people. We have an excellent person in Mary Mackessy, who is available to help individuals and families who are caught in these difficulties. Be aware of her telephone no. 086 – 0439702. Let us not condemn those who are struggling with these difficulties, but let us reach out to those who need our help. The scourge of drugs needs to be confronted by the whole community. Our failure to do so could bring destruction to families, our community and our good name. This issue needs to be taken seriously by us all.

 

Palm Sunday: Next Sunday is Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week. The events celebrated during Holy Week, bring us back to the basis of our faith in our Saviour, Jesus Christ. The world we live in needs the Saving Grace of Jesus like never before. We encourage you all this Holy Week to make a very special effort to participate in the Holy Week Ceremonies. As you all know, there will be a lot of distractions to the ceremonies, but let us not forget why we celebrate Easter.

 

Jesus Weeps:

Shortly before His death Jesus was descending the Mount of Olives and looking across at the great city of Jerusalem, He wept tears of sorrow for He had a vision of the future destruction of the City. He was heard to express sorrow that the city had failed to appreciate God’s visitation in the coming of Jesus Himself. He was heard to say “How I longed to gather you, as a hen gathered her chicks, but you refused the call”, He was referring to His call to repentance and conversion. This is a week of Grace for us all. Let us avail of the opportunity of Confession and participate in the Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday ceremonies. God, is also given us opportunities, it is important that we avail of them.
