The 6th Sunday of Easter 16th/17th May 2020


The Church

This weeks Parish Collection/Donations amounted to €988



There will be times when you will not see the immediate way ahead. You may be filled with panic, wanting to avoid what could be a disastrous step. Remember that you do not always need to see the road ahead.  It is sufficient, for the moment, to see Me!

When the time is right for a choice to be made you will know and I will assist you through it. Until that time be sure that merely keeping close to Me guarantees your moving in the right direction, despite questions and doubts raging in your mind.

When you cannot see clearly the next step, there is a good reason for My withholding that awareness. It becomes a time of trust…trust, very often, that I will simply cause My wish for you to happen! Do not feel the awful responsibility of choosing your path when that is not necessary for the moment. Just hide in Myself and know that you will soon see clearly…

Until then, you are precisely where I want you to be.


Your father knows what you need.         (Matthew 6.8)
