To share his peace.


“Christ invites us all not only to receive his peace but also to share it with those around us. We cannot do this unless we are at ease in each other’s company, sympathetic listeners to one another’s story, willing to struggle together rather than to pull apart, and when in the wrong to have the humility to say, “I am sorry.” As human beings, we are a mixture of hopes and fears, strengths and weaknesses and are all wounded to some degree. It is only Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit who can console us, heal us and bring us peace of mind. However, in order to pass on the peace of Christ we must be at peace with ourselves, all our grudges gone and resentments banished.”

Extract from, “Preaching God’s Word on Sunday,” by Fr. Desmond Knowles.

May 26 - St Gregory VII (1028-85)

Pope St Gregory VII was born about 1020 in Tuscany (Italy); died in exile at Salerno on this day in 1085. Served in important positions under several popes and briefly a monk of Cluny. Elected pope in 1073 and campaigned strenuously for the reform of the Roman Church and for its freedom from civil powers. Noted for his devotion to the Church in Rome and for the reform of clerical and monastic life and of Church organisation.

 Pope Gregory from 1073 to 1085,  "was probably the most energetic and determined man ever to occupy the See of Peter and was driven by an almost mystically exalted vision of the awesome responsibility and dignity of the papal office" (Eamonn Duffy, Saints and Sinners: A History of the Popes, p. 121). Patrick Duffy summarises this pope's life and significance.

A disciple of Pope Gregory VI
Born at Sovana, a small town in southern Tuscany, the son of a blacksmith, and christened Hildebrand, he was educated in Rome by the archpriest John Gratian, who in 1045 became Pope Gregory VI. However, because of a financial deal involved in getting rid of his corrupt predecessor, Gregory was deposed in 1046 by the reforming German king and Holy Roman Emperor Henry III and went into retirement in the Benedictine monastery of Cluny, France. Hildebrand went with his master into exile at Cluny and spent three years there as a monk.

Ambassador of four popes
However, he returned to Rome in 1049 to serve the newly elected Pope St Leo IX as papal treasurer. Hildebrand became a deacon and then prior of the monastery of St Paul's Outside the Walls and was an assistant to a major influence on the next four popes, all of whom were reformers. He was also successful in various ambassadorial roles. On the death of Pope Alexander II (1061-73, he was elected pope by popular acclaim by the clergy and people of Rome. He still had to be ordained priest and bishop before he could act as pope.

Conflict with King Henry IV of Germany
Holy Roman Emperor Henry IV doing penance to reverse his excommunication by Pope Gregory VII
Taking his name from his mentor Gregory VI, Gregory VII immediately set about cleaning up the abuses of simony, clerical concubinage and lay investiture. He demanded that bishops take an oath of obedience to him and threatened those who wouldn't carry out papal decrees. Over lay investiture he faced opposition from King Philip I of France, William the Conqueror of England and the young King Henry IV of Germany. Henry, whose father had appointed bishops and popes at will, resented the brusqueness of this new pontiff and gathered "his" bishops at Worms and insisted Gregory be deposed. But Gregory then excommunicated Henry and all the bishops collaborating with him and absolved his subjects from allegiance. Ecclesiastical support for Henry cracked and in 1077 he had to travel to the house of Matilda of Canossa in Italy where Gregory was staying and there he begged the Pope's pardon and absolution. Gregory left Henry standing in humiliation for three days in the snow before eventually granting him pardon.

Pyrrhic victory and death
But Gregory's victory was short lived. Henry rallied his forces and in 1080 invaded Italy, captured Rome, declared Gregory deposed. He installed an antipope Guibert of Ravenna as Clement III. Gregory took refuge in Castel Sant'Angelo, invited in the Normans under Robert Guiscard to rescue him. However, the Normans behaved so badly in Rome that the Romans turned on Gregory and forced him to retire first to Monte Cassino and then to Salerno south of Naples where he died. His last words were famously an adaptation of Psalm 44 (45) verse 7: "I have loved justice and hated iniquity; therefore I die in exile".

Papal claims
Gregory's pontificate represents a strong staking out of the papal claim of power over the secular world and though he achieved little, the spirit of papal reform continued and the papacy never receded from its claims to freedom from secular and political control in spiritual matters. From this time on also the pope began to be presented not just as the vicar of St Peter, but as "the vicar of Christ himself" (Innocent III 1198-1216).

His influence
Gregory's beatification (1585) and canonisation (1605) took place at a time when the papacy was in conflict with secular powers - Queen Elizabeth I and James I in England. His feast was extended to the universal Church in 1728, causing some fury among proponents of Gallicanism in France.

infallabilityHe was later seen as a precursor of Vatican I with its definition of the doctrine of papal infallibility. One could perhaps be forgiven for detecting a hint of spin or ideology in his promotion, but the tyrannies of the 20th century bear out the value of his insistence on the freedom of the Church in speaking out on spiritual matters.
Liturgical Readings for: Sunday, 26th May, 2019
FIRST READING      Acts of the Apostles 15:1-2. 22-29
It has been decided by the Holy Spirit and by ourselves not to saddle you with any burden beyond these essentials

Some men came down from Judaea and taught the brothers, 'Unless you have yourselves circumcised in the tradition of Moses you cannot be saved'. This led to disagreement, and after Paul and Barnabas had had a long argument with these men it was arranged that Paul and Barnabas and others of the church should go up to Jerusalem and discuss the problem with the apostles and elders.

Then the apostles and elders decided to choose delegates to send to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas; the whole church concurred with this. They chose Judas known as Barsabbas and Silas, both leading men in the brotherhood, and gave them this letter to take with them:

'The apostles and elders, your brothers, send greetings to the brothers of pagan birth in Antioch, Syria and Cilicia. We hear that some of our members have disturbed you with their demands and have unsettled your minds. They acted without any authority from us; and so we have decided unanimously to elect delegates and to send them to you with Barnabas and Paul, men we highly respect who have dedicated their lives to the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Accordingly we are sending you Judas and Silas, who will confirm by word of mouth what we have written in this letter. It has been decided by the Holy Spirit and by ourselves not to saddle you with any burden beyond these essentials: you are to abstain from food sacrificed to idols; from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from fornication. Avoid these, and you will do what is right. Farewell.'

SECOND READING        Apocalypse 21:10-14. 22-23
He  showed me the holy city, coming down from God out of heaven.

In the spirit, he took me to the top of an enormous high mountain and showed me Jerusalem, the holy city, coming down from God out of heaven. It had all the radiant glory of God and glittered like some precious jewel of crystal-clear diamond. The walls of it were of a great height, and had twelve gates; at each of the twelve gates there was an angel, and over the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel; on the east there were three gates, on the north three gates, on the south three gates, and on the west three gates. The city walls stood on twelve foundation stones, each one of which bore the name of one of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

I saw that there was no temple in the city since the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb were themselves the temple, and the city did not need the sun or the moon for light, since it was lit by the radiant glory of God and the Lamb was a lighted torch for it.

The Word of the Lord

Gospel Acclamation       Jn 14: 23
Alleluia, alleluia!
Jesus said: 'If anyone loves me he will keep my word,
and my Father will love him, and we shall come to him.

GOSPEL                            John 14:23-29
The Holy Spirit, will  remind you of all I have said to you.

Jesus said to his disciples:

'If anyone loves me he will keep my word,
and my Father will love him,
and we shall come to him
and make our home with him.
Those who do not love me do not keep my words.
And my word is not my own:
it is the word of the one who sent me.
I have said these things to you
while still with you;
but the Advocate, the Holy Spirit,
whom the Father will send in my name,
will teach you everything
and remind you of all I have said to you.
Peace I bequeath to you,
my own peace I give you,
a peace the world cannot give,
this is my gift to you.
Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.
You heard me say:
I am going away, and shall return.
If you loved me you would have been glad to know that I am going to the Father,
for the Father is greater than I.
I have told you this now before it happens,
so that when it does happen you may believe.

CÉAD LÉACHT                         Gníomhartha na nAspal 15:1-2. 22-29
Tá beartaithe ag an Spiorad Naomh agus againn féin gan aon ualach breise a leagan oraibh ach an méid seo atá riachtanach.

Tháinig daoine anuas ó Iúdáia agus thosaigh siad ag teagasc na mbráithre: “Mura ndéantar sibh a thimpeallghearradh de réir ghnás Mhaois,” ar siad, “ní féidir bhur slánú.”Bhí aighneas agus argóint fhada ag Pól agus ag Barnabas leo, agus shocraigh siad go rachadh Pól agus Barnabas agus roinnt eile acu go Iarúsailéim chun dul I gcomhairle leis na haspail agus leis na seanóirí faoin gceist seo.

Ansin shocraigh na haspail agus na seanóirí agus an Eaglais ar fad ar dhaoine áirithe acu féin a thoghadh agus a chur go hAintíoch in éineacht le Pól agus le Barnabas. Agus chuir siad beirt a raibh ardchéim acu i measc na mbráithre, Iúdás ar a dtugtaí Barsabas agus Síleas. Thug siad dóibh an litir: “Beatha agus sláinte ó na bráithre idir aspail agus sheanóirí, chun na mbráithre de bhunadh págánach atá in Aintíoch agus sa tSír agus sa tSiléis. Is clos dúinn go ndeachaigh daoine áirithe dár muintirne amach chugaibh agus go ndearna siad sibh a bhuaireamh agus bhur n-aigne a shuaitheadh lena gcuid teagaisc agus gan aon údarás acu uainne. Bheartaíomar dá bhrí sin nár mhiste dúinn teacht le chéile agus teachtaí a thoghadh agus iad a chur chugaibh in éineacht lenár mbráithre ionúine Pól agus Barnabas, beirt a bhfuil a n-anam curtha sa bhfiontar acu ar son ainm ár dTiarna Íosa Críost. Dá réir sin táimid ag seoladh Iúdáis agus Shíleas chugaibh agus tabharfaidh siadsan an tuairisc chéanna ó bhéal daoibh. Tá beartaithe ag an Spiorad Naomh agus againn féin gan aon ualach breise a leagan oraibh ach an méid seo atá riachtanach: sibh a staonadh ó nithe íobartha agus ó fhuil agus nithe tachtaithe agus ón bposadh coil. Má staonann sibh ó na nithe seo, beidh an ceart á dhéanamh agaibh. Slán agaibh.”

DARA LÉACHT        Apacailipsis 21:10-14. 22-23
Thaispeáin sé an chathair bheannaithe dom agus í ag tuirlingt ó neamh.

Rug an t-aingeal leis mé sa spiorad faoi shliabh mór ard, agus thaispeáin sé Iarúsailéim, an chathair bheannaithe, dom agus í ag tuirlingt ó neamh ó Dhia, agus glóir Dé aici. Ba chosúil a lonradh le cloch rólómhar, mar chloch sheaspair ar ghile an chriostail. Agus múr mór ard ina timpeall, ar a raibh dhá gheata dhéag, agus ar na geataí bhí dhá aingeal déag, agus ainmneacha arna scríobh ar na geataí, ainmneacha dhá threibh dhéag mhac Iosrael; bhí trí gheata ar an taobh thoir, trí gheata ar an taobh thuaidh, trí gheata ar an taobh theas, agus trí gheata ar an taobh thiar. Agus dhá chloch déag bhoinn faoi mhúr na cathrach, agus orthusan dhá ainm déag dháréag aspal an Uain. Ní fhaca mé teampall inti, óir is é an Tiarna Dia Uilechumhachtach, agus an tUan, is teampall aici. Agus ní gá don chathair grian ná gealach chun soilsiú uirthi, mar is í glóir Dé ba sholas di, agus ba é an tUan a lóchrann.

Alleluia Véarsa                    Eo 14:23
Alleluia, Alleluia!
Má bhíonn grá ag duine dom, coinneoidh sé mo bhriathar,
agus beidh grá ag m'Athair dó,
agus tiocfaimid chuige,' a deir an Tiarna.

SOISCÉAL                 Eoin 14:23-29
Cuirfidh an Spiorad Naomh, i gcuimhne daoibh, ar inis mise daoibh.

San am sin d’fhreagair Íosa a dheisceabail:
“Má bhíonn grá ag duine dom,” ar sé leis,
“coinneoidh sé mo bhriathar,
agus beidh grá ag m’Athair dó,
agus tiocfaimid chuige,
agus déanfaimid cónaí mar aon leis.
An té nach mbíonn grá aige dom,
ní choinníonn sé mo bhriathra.
Ach an briathar a chluineann sibh, ní liom féin é,
ach leis an Athair a chuir uaidh mé.
Tá an méid sin inste agam daoibh,
fad a bhí mé ag fanacht agaibh,
ach an tAbhcóide, an Spiorad Naomh,
a chuirfidh an tAthair uaidh i m’ainmse,
múinfidh seisean an uile ní daoibh,
agus cuirfidh sé i gcuimhne daoibh,
ar inis mise daoibh.
Fágaim síocháin agaibh;
tugaim mo shíocháin daoibh.
Ní thugaim daoibh í mar a thugann an saol í.
Ná bíodh bhur gcroí buartha agus ná bíodh eagla air.
Chuala sibh mé á rá libh:
‘Táim ag imeacht uaibh,
agus tiocfaidh mé ar ais chugaibh.’
Dá mbeadh grá agaibh dom,
bheadh áthas oraibh,
óir táim ag dul go dtí an tAthair,
mar is mó an tAthair ná mise.
Agus anois, tá sé inste agam daoibh,
sula dtiocfaidh sé chun críche, ionas,
nuair a thiocfaidh sé chun críche,
go gcreidfidh sibh.

FIRST READING               

A reading from the Acts  1:1-11
He was lifted up while they looked on.

In my earlier work, Theophilus, I dealt with everything Jesus had done and I taught from the beginning until the day he gave his instructions to the apostles he had chosen through the Holy Spirit, and was taken up to heaven. He had shown himself alive to them after his Passion by many demonstrations: for forty days he had continued to appear to them and tell them about the kingdom of God. When he had been at table with them, he had told them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait there for what the Father had promised. 'It is' he had said 'what you have heard me speak about: John baptised with water but you, not many days from now, will be baptised with the Holy Spirit.'

Now having met together, they asked him, 'Lord, has the time come? Are you going to restore the kingdom to Israel?' He replied, 'It is not for you to know times or dates that the Father has decided by his own authority, but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and then you will be my witnesses not only in Jerusalem but throughout Judaea and Samaria, and indeed to the ends of the earth'.

As he said this he was lifted up while they looked on, and a cloud took him from their sight. They were still staring into the sky when suddenly two men in white were standing near them and they said, 'Why are you men from Galilee standing here looking into the sky? Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven, this same Jesus will come back in the same way as you have seen him go there.'

The Word of the Lord

Responsorial Psalm              Ps 46
Response                                  God goes up with shouts of joy;

or                                                 Alleluia!
1. All peoples, clap your hands,
cry to God with shouts of joy!
For the Lord, the Most High, we must fear,
great king over all the earth.           Response

2. God goes up with shouts of joy;
the Lord goes up with trumpet blast.
Sing praise for God, sing praise,
sing praise to our king, sing praise. Response

3. God is king of all the earth.
Sing praise with all your skill.
God is king over the nations;
God reigns on his holy throne.         Response

A reading from the letter of St Paul to the Ephesians  1 17-23
He made him sit at his right hand, in heaven.

May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, give you a spirit of wisdom and perception of what is revealed, to bring you to full knowledge of him.

May he enlighten the eyes of your mind so that you can see what hope his call holds for you, what rich glories he has promised the saints will inherit and how infinitely great is the power that he has exercised for us believers. This you can tell from the strength of his power at work in Christ, when he used it to raise him from the dead and to make him sit at his right hand, in heaven, far above every Sovereignty, Authority, Power, or Domination, or any other name that can be named not only in this age but also in the age to come. He has put all things under his feet and made him, as the ruler of everything, the head of the Church; which is his body, the fullness of him who fills the whole creation.

The word of the Lord

Gospel acclamation            Mt 28: 19
Allelluia, alleluia!
Go, make disciples of all the nations;
I am with you always; yes, to the end of time.


A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke  24:46-53
As he blessed them, he was carried up to heaven.

Jesus said to his disciples: 'You see how it is written that the Christ would suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that, in his name, repentance for the forgiveness of sins would be preached to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses to this.

'And now I am sending down to you what the Father has promised. Stay in the city then, until you are clothed with the power from on high.' Then he took them out as far as the outskirts of Bethany, and lifting up his hands he blessed them. Now as he blessed them, he withdrew from them and was carried up to heaven. They worshipped him and then went back to  Jerusalem full of joy; and they were continually in the Temple praising God.

Sliocht as Gníomhartha na nAspal    1:1-11
Tógadh suas os comhair a súl é .

Thug mé cuntas cheana, a Theofail, ar gach a ndearna Íosa agus ar ar thug sé de theagasc uaidh ó thús go dtí an lá a tógadh suas ar neamh é, tar éis dó a chuid orduithe a thabhairt le cabhair an Spioraid Naoimh do na haspail a bhí tofa aige. i ndiaidh a pháise is iomaí cruthú a thug sé dóibh go raibh sé beo, á nochtadh féin dóibh ar feadh daichead lá agus ag cur síos ar ríocht Dé. Uair dá raibh sé ina gcuibhreann d’ordaigh sé dóibh gan corraí ó Iarúsailéim ach fanacht ann go dtí go gcomhlíonfaí gealltanas an Athar, “An gealltanas úd,” ar sé, “ar chuala sibh mé ag trácht air: rinne Eoin baisteadh le huisce, ach déanfar sibhse a bhaisteadh leis an Spiorad Naomh i gceann beagán laethanta.”

Más ea, nuair a bhí siad cruinnithe le chéile, thosaigh siad á cheistiú: “A Thiarna,” ar siad, “an anois atá tú chun ríocht Iosrael a athbhunú?” Ach d’fhreagair sé iad: “Ní aon chuid de bhur ngnósa é eolas a fháil ar na hamanna na ar na tráthanna atá leagtha amach ag an Athair as a údarás féin. Ach gheobhaidh sibh neart an Spioraid Naoimh atá le tuirlingt oraibh agus beidh sibh in bhur bhfinnéithe ormsa in Iarúsailéim agus ar fud Iúdáia go léir agus na Samáire agus a fhad le himeall an domhain.”

Ar rá an méid sin dó, tógadh suas os comhair a súl é agus d’ardaigh scamall as a radharc é. Fad a bhí siad ag stánadh in airde sa spéir ina dhiaidh sheas beirt fhear in éadaí bána ina n-aice. “A fheara na Gailíle,” ar siad, “cad ab áil libh in bhur seasamh ansin ag amharc in airde sa spéir? An Íosa seo a tógadh suas ar neamh uaibh, tiocfaidh sé an tslí chéanna ina bhfaca sibh ag dul suas é.”

A bhráithre, bím á iarraidh ar Dhia ár dTiarna Íosa Críost, ar Athair na Glóire, spiorad na heagna agus na géarchúise a thabhairt daoibh chun go gcuirfeadh sibh aithne air. Go soilsítear súile bhur n-aigne ar shlí go dtuigfidh sibh cad é mar údar dóchais daoibh bhur ngairm aige agus cad é mar oidhreacht fhairsing ghlórmhar atá aige i ndán don phobal naofa agus ollmhaitheas na cumhachta a chuir sé i bhfeidhm ar ár son-na, creidmhigh – an chumhacht éachtach úd a chuir sé ag obair i gCríost nuair a thóg sé ó mhairbh é agus chuir ina shuí ar a dheis sna flaithis é go hard os cionn gach ceannas agus údarás agus cumhacht agus tiarnas agus os cionn gach ainm dar féidir a ainmniú ní sa saol seo amháin é ach sa saol atá le teacht chomh maith. Agus chuir sé gach ní faoina smacht agus cheap é, os cionn gach ní, ina cheann ar an Eaglais is corp dó agus arb í iomláine an té úd a líonann gach ní go hiomlán í.

Sliocht as Soiscéal naofa de réir Naomh Lúcás  24:46-53
Agus le linn dó iad a bheannú tógadh suas ar neamh é.

San am sin dúirt Íosa lena dheisceabail : “Is amhlaidh sin atá scríofa, go bhfulaingeodh an Críost agus go n-éireodh sé ó mhairbh an treas lá, agus go mbeadh aithrí agus maithiúnas peacaí á bhfógairt ina ainm do na náisiúin uile, ag tosú ó Iarúsailéim. Is finnéithe sibhse ar na nithe seo. Agus táim féin, féach, chun a chur uaim anuas oraibh an ní a gealladhag m’Athair.

Ach fanaigí sibhse sa chathair nó go ngléasfar sibh i gcumhacht ó uachtar neimhe.” Ansin sheol sé amach iad chomh fada le Béatáine, agus ag ardú a lámh dó, bheannaigh iad. Agus le linn dó iad a bheannú, scar sé leo agus tógadh suas ar neamh é. Agus tar éis dóibh umhlú dó, chuaigh siad ar ais go hIarúsailéim agus áthas mór orthu, agus bhídís sa Teampall de ghnáth ag moladh agus ag beannú Dé.
