THE BREAD OF LIFE CAME DOWN FROM HEAVEN

Elijah, in the first reading, was on a journey. His journey was to Horeb, the mountain of God. The Lord provided food and drink for him to sustain him on his journey. Otherwise, he would not have been able to complete his journey and reach his destination.

Like Elijah, we too are on a journey, a journey through this life to our salvation, to immortality, to eternal life with God in his kingdom. Just like God provided for Elijah, He provides us with food and drink for our journey through life, to bring us to eternal life with Him. It is by Christ and Christ alone, that the Father draws us to Himself. It is by Christ, given under the form of bread—the living bread, that the Father draws us to Himself. The bread for our journey is the flesh of His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, freely given for the life of the world. The Bread of Life came down from Heaven. We are assured that “Anyone who eats this bread will live forever”.

We pray: “Lord, may the Eucharist you give us bring us to salvation and keep us faithful to the light of your truth”.      


FEAST OF THE ASSUMPTION

Wednesday 15th, is Feast of the Assumption. Mass times will be as follows:

Tullamore – 7.45am, 10.00am, 1.10pm & 6.30pm

SPECIAL MASS COMMEMERATING WMOF2018 AND VISIT OF POPE FRANCIS

On Tuesday, August 21 at 7.00pm there will be a special Mass celebrated in the Cathedral in Mullingar in preparation for the visit of Pope Francis to Ireland. Parishioners from the surrounding parishes are invited to participate in this special event. 

There will be a bus operating from the parish and anyone wishing to book a seat in this should contact the parish centre or leave their names into the sacristy. 


CEMETERY SUNDAY IN CLONMINCH

Cemetery Sunday is next Sunday 19th at 1.00pm in Clonminch. This is an important day in our Parish, as we remember our dead and their families. There will be no 1.00pm Mass in the Church of the Assumption .

We ask all families to continue removing waste material from their graves and we acknowledge the efforts that people have been making in maintaining and keeping the cemetery tidy.

The annual collection taken up at the cemetery gates will help us to maintain the cemetery to its usual high standard. Your support will be most appreciated. 

Eucharistic Ministers are needed for the Cemetery Mass. Please leave your name in the Sacristy and check your station number.

Parking Facilities available in Tullamore Court Hotel Car Park and Kilcruttin Business Centre (via O’Brien St)


TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS FOR PAPAL VISIT

We have organised buses for Phoenix Park but because of low numbers we are not yet in a position to order for Knock or Croke Park.

Names for all three buses must be left into the Sacristy or the Parish Centre by next Thursday 16th.


SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPEL

John 6:41-51

Faith is reasonable but we cannot reason our way into faith. We have to be ‘drawn byb the Father’. We have to be ‘taught by God’. What opens your mind and heart to God’s message?

When we label others disparagingly, we close our minds to what they are saying. The Jews did this to Jesus. Have you ever had this experience of being surprised by the wisdom of another when you laid aside your prejudices about them to listen to what they were saying?

‘No one has ever seen the Father except the one who is from God’. As Jesus put a human face on God and God’s love, so God’s love today is mediated to us through one another. How have other people been sacraments of God’s love for you? For whom have you been that kind of a sacrament?

The way in which Jesus became a source of life for us was by giving himself. It is when we truly give ourselves that we can be life-giving to one another. If we do not give of ourselves, what do we have to offer? How have you discovered the importance of self-giving, in yourself or in others?

John Byrne, osa, Intercom 2018
