DECISION TIME

Most of us are pulled in many directions on our life’s journey: the world, society, popularity.  Evil, selfishness, fear and sin are very much part of the world we live in, just as it was in Jesus’ time on earth.  

He is very clear in today’s Gospel what He expects of us and what we must work towards whatever the cost.  When we live by Christ’s values we can expect rejection and unpopularity even among those closest to us.

Christ knew where He stood!  Both He and Jeremiah lived and died trying to speak out for voiceless people; alleviate suffering and denounce evil.

To always do what is right is a lonely road and Christ asks us to travel that road with Him and not to compromise on what is right and just.  When we keep our eyes fixed on Jesus and on His promises, it will be easy to stand for what is right and not to fear. 

‘Think of Jesus.....and you will not be discouraged or grow weary.’ Hebrews 12:3


FEAST OF THE ASSUMPTION

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

Tullamore Church – 7.45am, 1.10pm & 6.30pm.

No Vigil in Durrow


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

There are people who will always come up with reasons why you can’t do what you dream to do.  Ignore them!


CLONMINCH CEMETERY SUNDAY

Cemetery Sunday is next Sunday, 21st, at 1.00pm in Clonminch.  This is an important day in our Parish, especially as it will be the first time in three years that we will be able to gather to 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 collection taken up at the gates will help us to maintain the cemetery to its usual high standard.  Your support will be most appreciated.

Eucharistic Ministers needed for the Cemetery Mass.  Please leave your name on list in the Sacristy.


SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPEL

Luke 12:49-53

The commitment of Jesus to his mission is shown in his desire to undergo the baptism that awaits him.  Have there been times when there was something you greatly hoped for, even though you knew there would be a baptism of fire along the way?  What was it like for you to undergo such a baptism of fire and then arrive at what you desired? 

Jesus recognied that the message he proclaimed would meet with a mixed reception.  This did not hold him back from proclaiming the Reign of God.  When have you seen this kind of courage in yourself, or in others? 

Jesus challenged those listening to him to commit themselves to discipleship, despite opposition from those close to them, even family members.  When have you found that being true to yourself and to your beliefs required such courage?  What was it like for you when you were able to follow that courageous road?
