CALLED BY NAME

A wealthy man with a senior job would really need to be searching for something to so forget his dignity as to climb a tree … Zacchaeus did.  He not only caught a glimpse of Jesus, but Jesus looked up at him and called him by name.  Zacchaeus hurried down filled with joy.  What was lost was found!  Zacchaeus had heard his own name spoken by Jesus whose gaze held the infinite compassion of God.

As a son of Abraham, Zacchaeus would have well known the Word of God as spoken by the prophet Isaiah, “I have called you by your name you are mine.  Do not be afraid, I have redeemed you.”  For Zacchaeus, suddenly nothing else mattered.  He immediately decides to give away half his property and plenty more besides – not to gain favour from Jesus, but, because he now knows his own true dignity and who he really is.

Jesus doesn’t categorise people into boxes … rich, poor, powerful, stupid, useful etc.  He sees the unique person first … and loves them for who they are in themselves.  We have to admit that that’s not what we usually do.

We would do well to ask the Holy Spirit to teach us how to see each other as people first so that we are assured of our value and dignity … children of the one Father first of all, everything else is secondary.


MONTH OF NOVEMBER

FEAST OF ALL SAINTS

Tuesday 1st is the Feast of All Saints.

Mass Times:  Tullamore 7.45am, 10.00am, 1.10pm, 6.30pm

Durrow Vigil (Monday 31st) 8.00pm.

FEAST OF ALL SOULS

Wednesday 2nd is the Feast of All Souls.

Mass Times:  Tullamore 7.45am, 10.00am, 6.30pm

All Masses celebrated on Wednesday 2nd & Thursday 3rd and all First Fridays Masses will be offered for the Altar List of the Dead.


MASS FOR THE BEREAVED

Next Saturday, 5th, the 10.00am Mass will be for all the families in our Parish who have lost a loved one during the year.

It is the teaching of the Church and the practice of our ancestors to remember the dead during this month.  Birth, growth and death are of the natural order.  Each of us will die some day as it is part of God’s plan for us.  Let us follow God’s command and pray for the souls of the dead who have gone before us – our relatives, neighbours, ancestors and all the holy souls.  May God increase his glory, ease the pain and grant them remission of their sins.  We can also visit a church or cemetery during this month.

It is comforting to remember that our relatives are not gone from us but before us and one day we will be with them in Paradise.


NIGHT OF LIGHT- CELEBRATION OF HALLOWEEN

Monday 31st, let’s celebrate with Holy Mass at 6.00pm in Tullamore Church, followed by a Procession and a party in the Parish Centre.  Children are invited to come along dressed as … their favourite Saint. 

Halloween means evening of ‘The Saints’ and while it has been re-designed by culture as a night of goblins and ghouls, the whole idea of Halloween is the preparation for the great feast of All Saints Day November 1st.

Baptisms take place monthly on the first Sunday in Tullamore, second Sunday in Durrow, third and fourth Saturday in Tullamore.  Contact the Parish Secretary.
