A Guide

The Presence of God

As I sit here, god is present,

Breathing life into me and into everything around me.

For a few moments, I sit silently,

And become aware of Gods loving presence.

Freedom

If God were trying to tell me something, would I know?

If God were reassuring me of challenging me,

Would I notice?

I ask for the grace to be free of my own preoccupations

And open to what God may be saying to me.

Consciousness

In God’s loving presence I unwind the past day,

Starting from now and looking back, moment by moment.

I gather in all the goodness and light, in gratitude.

I attend to the shadows and what they say to me,

Seeking healing, courage, forgiveness.

The Word

I take my time to read to the Word of God, slowly, a few times,

Allowing myself to dwell on anything that strikes me.

Conversation

What is stirring in me as I pray?

Am I consoled, troubled, left cold?

I imagine Jesus himself standing or sitting at my side,

And share my feelings with him.

Conclusion

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,

And to the Holy Spirit,

As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be,

World without end.

Amen

Buíochas:

Graveyard

The Graveyard is a place of rest and a garden for our loved ones who

have gone to God. In recent times I have noted large amounts of waste material (e.g

old wreaths, extra clay, stone) being dumped. This has caused me great concern, I

would immediately ask all people to bring their waste home and all workers to bring

waste away. Fr Denis G

Family Prayer

During these difficult times people are encouraged to pray at home. It

is an important time for family prayer and I Fr Denis G ask you to pray for your own

family and also for families in our parish. We also should remember all those who

work in difficult situations at this time.

FÁILTE AN AINGIL

Tháinig Aingeal an Tiarna le teachtaireacht chuig Muire,

Agus ghabh sí ón Spiorad Naomh. ‘Sé do beatha, a Mhuire, srl. Féach mise

searbhónta an Tiarna, Déantar liom mar dúrais. ‘Sé do beatha, a Mhuire, srl. Rinneadh

feoil den Bhriathar Agus chónaigh sé eadrainn. ‘Sé do beatha, a Mhuire, srl. Guigh

orainn a Naomh Mháthair Dé, Ionas go mb’fhiú sinn geallúna Chríost. Guímis Doirt

anuas, impímid ort, a Thiarna, do ghrásta in ár gcroíthe, ionas sinne a fuair fios ar

ionchollú Chríost, do Mhac, trí theachtaireacht an Aingil, go dtiocfaimid trí luaíocht a

pháise agus a chroíse chun ghlóire na haiséirí, tríd an Chríost céanna, ár dTiarna,

Amen
