SALVATION IS OPEN TO ALL

Being a follower of Jesus is not easy and for many of us it simply means listening to his message and celebrating the Eucharist weekly. However, St. Luke in his gospel suggests this is by no means enough.

Jesus leaves us in no doubt that if we really are serious about following Him we must try our best at all times “to enter by the narrow door.” Yes, being a follower of Jesus presents us with many challenges and demands but the rewards are great.

We are called by Jesus to live our faith on a daily basis. There will be occasions when we may struggle in our mission of living the gospel and it is on such occasions that we must renew our commitment to His message. The promise of salvation is open to us all but the real question is our willingness to reach out and grasp it. 


DURROW BLESSING OF GRAVES

Cemetery Sunday in Durrow will be on the 8th September, with blessing of the graves taking place after 11.30am Mass.


DURROW HALL

The newly refurbished Durrow Hall will reopen today, Sunday 25th, at 2.00pm.

All are welcome.


PARISH PASTORAL COUNCIL

A Parish Pastoral Council (PPC herein) is a consultative body of the faithful, representative of the whole parish community, willing to work in close partnership with the priest(s) of the parish to further the mission of Christ and his Church in the parish.

We are currently in the process of renewing the PPC in Tullamore parish and earlier in the summer parishioners submitted nominations. The next part of the process is for parishioners to vote on the nominations received. Voting sheets will be available at our churches next weekend and we request parishioners to submit their vote. 

Members of the Parish Pastoral Council give generously of their time for the good of our Parish community. We acknowledge the service of outgoing members and thank them for their work. We look forward to the establishment of the new council which will continue the work and partnership which is central to parish life and development.


SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPEL

Luke 13:22-30

The question put to Jesus is one that many still ask: ‘Will many be saved?’ In his answer, Jesus is not concerned about numbers but warns his listeners about complacency. Just as his listeners could not regard the mere fact of being Jews as sufficient for salvation, neither can we regard being Christians as enough. Salvation will come from our acceptance of Jesus. For any relationship to be alive – either with God or with another human person – the real question is: ‘Is my heart in this relationship?’ What does your experience tell you of this?

‘Strive to enter by the narrow door.’ Jesus himself is on his journey to Jerusalem; purposeful and determined. His true followers will also be purposeful and determined. That is true of any journey, career, or relationship if there is to be growth or progress. What it is like for you when you fail to do this? What is it like for you when the effort is there?

John Byrne, Intercom August 2019
