FOOD FOR ETERNAL LIFE

How often have we made promises to others and even to ourselves? How often are we taken in by the promises made by the media, especially advertisers? Living a longer life, better quality of life, etc. What they offer is a substitute and not always a realistic one. It is only Christ who can show us how to live and live more abundantly.

How would we have responded to the promise of Jesus if we were in the place of the Jews? Would we have believed Him and His promises or have been as incredulous as those in todays Gospel? Sometimes we limit the power of God to our own limited understanding; if we can not see how it can happen, then we decide it cannot happen?

The promise is that all who are nourished by the Bread of life will live forever. We can only get a glimpse of that promise through faith and try to live our lives as Christ lived.

“…lay aside our immature ways and walk in the way of understanding” (Proverbs 9:6).

Lord, when we receive your Body and Blood today, may it deepen our faith and understanding.

WELCOME TO POPE FRANCIS

WORLD MEETING OF FAMILIES AND VISIT OF POPE FRANCIS TO IRELAND

Dublin has been chosen by Pope Francis to host the next World Meeting of Families from 21-26 August 2018, guided by the theme “The Gospel of the Family: Joy for the World”.  

Held every three years, this major international event brings together families from across the world to celebrate, pray and reflect upon the central importance of marriage and the family as the cornerstone of our lives, of society and of the Church. 

21 August, a National Opening of WMOF2018, which will take place simultaneously in all the different dioceses of Ireland.

22 to the 24 August, a three-day Congress.  Each day will reflect on the theme “The Gospel of the Family: Joy for the World” chosen by the Holy Father and will include an enriching programme for adults of keynote speakers, workshops, talks, testimonies and discussions; an engaging and exciting programme for young people as well as fun activities for children. The Congress will also include daily celebration of the Eucharist, prayerful activities, exhibitions, cultural events and musical performances.

Saturday 25 August, a Festival of Families in Croke Park with Pope Francis, comprising a reflective concert style event within a prayerful and joyful atmosphere, in which personal stories of faith will be shared by families from all continents.

Sunday 26 August, Pope Francis will visit Knock. 

Sunday 26 August, WMOF2018 will close with Mass celebrated by Pope Francis in the Phoenix Park that will gather thousands of people from Ireland and all over the world. 

Diocesan Celebration in Mullingar, to mark the opening of World Meeting of Families and visit of Pope Francis.

Tuesday, Aug 21st at 7pm.

We invite parishioners to participate in this Mass and there will be a bus available from the parish to Mullingar. To book a place on the bus please contact sacristy or parish centre. 

Mass times will be as normal in the Parish next weekend.  Parishioners who cannot attend the World meeting of families or the Papal Mass can be part of these celebrations through participation in Masses offered in the Parish and the prayers of our local church community. 

May this be an opportunity for us to renew our faith and to discover the joy of the Gospel.
