Forgiveness:

The Lord is very forgiving. He knows how weak we all are. As we enter Holy Week, let us seek that forgiveness, in the Sacrament of Confession. It is an act of great humility. Let is not allow shame or guilt, fear or length of time, prevent us from taking this important step, closer to the Lord. He wants us to be closer to Him. The television and radio presenter, George Hook, proclaimed to the whole country the great Blessing he found in making Confession. The Lord is waiting for us.

Fr. Marius O’Reilly, from the Diocese of Cork & Ross and who was ordained last November, is returning to us next Monday night to lead us in the Penitential Rite at 7.30pm. Seven priests will be available to hear Confession. As you will see from your leaflet, there are a number of other Confession times during Holy Week, including after all ceremonies on Good Friday. In this holy time let us surrender all our guilt to the Lord and unburden ourselves to His Love and Mercy.

 

Three Special Days:

Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday, are the three most important events in the Christian Life. On the 1st Holy Thursday evening, Jesus gave us the gift of Himself in the Holy Eucharist, ordained the first priests and taught us all to wash each other’s feet. At 3 o’clock on the first Good Friday, Jesus offered Himself on the Cross for the salvation of humanity. After three days buried in the tomb, He rose from the dead on the 1st Easter Sunday. Through these great events, the condemnation of death was lifted forever. The meaning of human life was revealed to all who would accept it and believe it.

Let us all stop this Holy Week: leave the tractor, put the kitchen work aside, leave the sports field and come and spend this special time with the Lord, to adore, praise and thank Him.

 

Divine Mercy Novena begins on Good Friday and finishes on the 2nd Sunday of Easter, April 12th Feast of the Divine Mercy. Devotions in the Parish Church at 2pm to 5pm.
