Prayer for the ploughing

Bishop Nulty says that because the Ploughing focuses on rural living it is an appropriate event to find a new prayer about caring for “our common home”. read more »

Show and Tell

Show and Tell

A nun reveals that one of the most influential books of her vocational discernment was Let Your Life Speak by Parker J. Palmer. She says that when she read it in her early twenties, she learned much about how to listen to her heart and hear the voice of God’s loving encouragement.  This listening led her to join a community of Franciscan Sisters, and as a vowed member, she continues to understand her life as a conversation with God, a journey of listening and responding, of show and tell.

Truly, each of us is in a lifelong conversation with God, and each of us has an opportunity to listen to Christ’s questions and respond. Will you follow me? Who do you say that I am? Are you willing to lose everything for my sake? When it comes to how we’ll answer, God seeks our response instead of our words. The adage “actions speak louder than words,” applies, when it comes to loving God and neighbour.

Sep 19 - St Januarius (4th century) marytr

JanuariusThree times a year - on his feast, on the day of the translation of his relics and on the day he saved Naples from an eruption on Mount Vesuvius - the blood of St Januarius is said to liquefy. Patrick Duffy gives the background.

Fourth century martyr at Naples
Januarius was a 4th century bishop of Beneventum, who with his companions suffered martyrdom in the persecution of Diocletian at Naples. It is said he was first thrown into a fiery furnace and remained unscathed. Then thrown to the lions in the arena, they refused to touch him. Finally he was beheaded. The Christian women collected his blood in a glass vial and placed it in his tomb.

Liquefaction of his blood
The first recorded liquefaction of his blood was recorded in the year jan1389 and since then countless pilgrims have witnessed this unexplained occurrence. The phenomenon has been the subject of intense dispute and scientific examination for centuries. The Church has never made any official declaration that it is a supernatural event. But even sceptics admit that something happens.

What is involved is a dark solid mass held in a glass vial kept in the treasury chapel of Naples cathedral. Three times a year a priest brings it out with a reliquary said to contain the saint's skull, holds it up and turns it as the people pray. After a period of anything from two minutes to an hour, it appears to become red and to bubble - or not. If it does, the priest proclaims the miracle and all sing the Te Deum in thanksgiving. If not, this is taken as a kind of prophetic warning.

Invoked against volcanic eruptions
In 1631 an eruption on nearby Mount Vesuvius threatened. The people prayed to St Januarius to spare them. The flow of lava abated and the city was saved. Ever since, St Januarius has been invoked against volcanic eruptions. He is also the patron saint of blood banks.
Liturgical Readings for: Thursday, 19th September, 2019
FIRST READING

A reading from the first letter of St Paul to Timothy        4:12-16
Take great care about what you do and what you teach.

living your faithDo not let people disregard you because you are young, but be an example to the believers in the way you speak and behave, and in your love, your faith and your purity. Make use of the time until I arrive by reading to the people, preaching and teaching. You have in you a spiritual gift which was given to you when the prophets spoke and the body of elders laid their hands on you; do not let it lie unused. Think hard about all this, and put it into practice, and everyone will be able to see how you are advancing. Take great care about what you do and what you teach; always do this, and in this way you will save both yourself and those who listen to you.

The Word of the Lord.

Alleluia!

A reading from the Gospel according to Luke            7:36-50
Her sins, her many sins, must have been forgiven her, or she would not have shown such great love.

her sinsOne of the Pharisees invited Jesus to a meal. When he arrived at the Pharisee's house and took his place at table, a woman came in, who had a bad name in the town. She had heard he was dining with the Pharisee and had brought with her an alabaster jar of ointment. She waited behind him at his feet, weeping, and her tears fell on his feet, and she wiped them away with her hair; then she covered his feet with kisses and anointed them with the ointment.

When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, 'If this man were a prophet, he would know who this woman is that is touching him and what a bad name she has.' Then Jesus took him up and said, 'Simon, I have something to say to you'. 'Speak, Master' was the reply. 'There was once a creditor who had two men in his debt; one owed him five hundred denarii, the other fifty. They were unable to pay, so he pardoned them both. Which of them will love him more?' 'The one who was pardoned more, I suppose' answered Simon. Jesus said, 'You are right.'

Then he turned to the woman. 'Simon,' he said 'you see this woman? I came into your house, and you poured no water over my feet, but she has poured out her tears over my feet and wiped them away with her hair. You gave me no kiss, but she has been covering my feet with kisses ever since I came in. You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment. For this reason I tell you that her sins, her many sins, must have been forgiven her, or she would not have shown such great love. It is the man who is forgiven little who shows little love.' Then he said to her, 'Your sins are forgiven' Those who were with him at table began to say to themselves, 'Who is this man, that he even forgives sins?' But he said to the woman, 'Your faith has saved you; go in peace.'

Gospel Reflection     Thursday,      Twenty Fourth Week in Ordinary Time        Luke 7:36-50

The story that we have just heard in today’s gospel reading puts before us a study in contrast. Jesus is at table as the guest of a Pharisee, but his host neglects to show him the normal signs of hospitality in that culture. Although the Pharisee has invited Jesus to his table, his way of receiving Jesus shows great reserve. In contrast, a woman, who had a reputation as a sinner, gate-crashes the meal and showers hospitality on Jesus in the most extravagant way imaginable. The one who would have been expected to show hospitality to Jesus doesn’t really show it. The outsider who would have been written off by people more than makes up for the hospitality Jesus was denied. How can we explain the difference? Jesus gives his own explanation. The woman had experienced through Jesus the gift of God’s forgiveness; her gestures were an outpouring of gratitude for that gift. The Pharisee had no sense of his need to receive God’s forgiveness from Jesus. He had no sense that he owed Jesus anything. The story invites us to ask ourselves, ‘Who do we stand with, the Pharisee or the woman?’ When we know ourselves to be forgiven sinners we are more likely to respond to Jesus in the way the woman did. At the source of our lives as followers of Jesus is the experience of God’s forgiveness in Jesus, God’s unconditional love through Jesus. Our lives then become a grateful, spontaneous response to that grace we have received. Like the woman, we give generously to the Lord, not out of duty but out of loving gratitude for all we have received. In the words of Saint Paul in today’s first reading, ‘you have in you a spiritual gift which was given to you’.

CÉAD LÉACHT

Sliocht as céad Litir Naomh Pól chuig Timóteas       4:12-16
Tabhair aire duit féin agus do do theagasc.

A bhráithre, ná lig d’aoinne tú a dhíspeagadh mar gheall ar d’óige ach bí i d’eiseamláir do na creidmhigh ar chaint agus ar iompar, ar ghrá agus ar chreideamh agus ar naofacht. Tabhair aire don léitheoireacht phoiblí, don tseanmóireacht agus don teagasc go dtí go dtiocfaidh mé. Ná déan faillí sa tíolacadh atá agat, an tíolacadh a bronnadh ort nuair a labhair na fáithe leat agus nuair a leag na seanóirí a lámha ort. Caith do dhúthracht leis na nithe sin agus bí ag gabháil dóibh chun go mba léir do chách an dul chun cinn atá á dhéanamh agat. Tabhair aire duit féin agus do do theagasc. Lean den obair, mar má dhéanann tú amhlaidh, sábháilfidh tú thú féin agus do lucht éisteachta.

SOISCÉAL

Sliocht as Soiscéal naofa de réir Naomh Lúcás       7:36-50
Sin é an fátha bhfuil a peacaí – a mórchuid peacaí – maite di; is léir sin ó mhéid a grá.

San am sin thug duine de na Fairisínigh cuireadh dÍosa chun proinne aige féin; agus ar dhul isteach dó i dteach an Fhairisínigh, chuaigh ina luí ag bord. Agus peacach mná a bhí sa chathair, nuair a fuair sí scéala é bheith ag bord i dteach an Fhairisínigh, thug sí léi próicín alabastair d’ola chumhra, agus ar bheith di ar gcúl ag a chosa agus í ag gol, thosaigh ag fliuchadh a chos lena deora, agus bhí á dtriomú le folt a cinn, agus í ag pógadh a chos agus á n-ungadh leis an ola chumhra. An Fairisíneach a thug an cuireadh dó, ar a fheiceáil sin dó, dúirt ina aigne: “Dá mba fáidh an duine seo, bheadh a fhios aige cé hí, agus cén sort í, an bhean seo atá ag baint leis, gur peacach í.” Dúirt Íosa leis á fhreagairt: “A Shíomóin, tá rud agam le rá leat.” “A Mháistir,” ar seisean, “abair.” Dúirt: “Bhí beirt i bhfiacha ag éilitheoir áirithe: bhí cúig céad déanar amuigh ar dhuine acu, agus caoga ar an duine eile. Nuair nach raibh an t-íoc acu, mhaith sé dóibh araon. Cé acu, mar sin, is mó grá dó?” D’fhreagair Síomón agus dúirt: “An té, mo bharúil, is mó dár mhaith.” Dúirt sé leis: “Thug tú an bhreith cheart.”

her sinsAgus ag iompú chun na mná, dúirt sé le Síomón: “An bhfeiceann tú an bhean seo? Tháinig mé isteach i do theach; níor thug tú uisce chugam do mo chosa; ach do fhliuch sí seo mo chosa lena deora agus thriomaigh lena gruaig iad. Níor thug tú dom póg; ach í seo, ó tháinig mé isteach, níor stad sí ach ag pógadh mo chos. Níor ung tú mo cheann le hola; ach d’ung sí seo mo chosa le hola chumhra. Sin é an fáth, deirim leat, a bhfuil a peacaí – a mórchuid peacaí – maite di; is léir sin ó mhéid a grá. Ach an té dá maítear an beagán, ní ghránn ach beagán.” Agus dúirt sé léi: “Tá do pheacaí maite.” Agus iad seo a bhí ag bord leis, thosaigh siad ag rá ina n-aigne: “Cé hé seo a dhéanann fiú amháin peacaí a mhaitheamh?” Ach dúirt sé leis an mbean: “Shlánaigh do chreideamh tú. Imigh faoi shíocháin.”

Liturgical Readings for: Sunday, 22nd September, 2019
FIRST READING 

A reading from the Book of the prophet  Amos        8:4-7
Against those who 'buy up the poor for money.

Listen to this, you who trample on the needy
and try to suppress the poor people of the country,
you who say, 'When will New Moon be over
so that we can sell our corn,
and sabbath, so that we can market our wheat?
Then by lowering the bushel, raising the shekel,
by swindling and tampering with the scales,
we can buy up the poor for money,
and the needy for a pair of sandals,
and get a price even for the sweepings of the wheat.'
The Lord swears it by the pride of Jacob,
'Never will I forget a single thing you have done'

The Word of the Lord

Responsorial Psalm            Ps 112
Response                                 Praise the Lord, who raises the poor.
Or                                               Alleluia!

1. Praise, O servants of the Lord,
praise the name of the Lord!
May the name of the Lord be blessed
both now and for evermore!                     Response

2. High above all nations is the Lord,
above the heavens his glory.
Who is like the Lord, our God,
who has risen on high to his throne
yet stoops from the heights to look down,
to look down upon heaven and earth?   Response

3. From the dust he lifts up the lowly,
from the dungheap he raises the poor
to set him in the company of princes,
yes, with the princes of his people.         Response


SECOND READING          

A reading from the first letter of St Paul to Timothy        2:1-8
There should be prayers offered for everyone to God who wants everyone to be saved.

My advice is that, first of all, there should be prayers offered for everyone - petitions, intercessions and thanksgiving - and especially for kings and others in authority, so that we may be able to live religious and reverent lives in peace and quiet. To do this is right, and will please God our saviour: he wants everyone to be saved and reach full knowledge of the truth. For there is only one God, and there is only one mediator between God and mankind, himself a man, Christ Jesus, who sacrificed himself as a ransom for them all. He is the evidence of this, sent at the appointed time, and I have been named a herald and apostle of it and - I am telling the truth and no lie - a teacher of the faith and the truth to the pagans.

In every place, then, I want the men to lift their hands up reverently in prayer, with no anger or argument.

Gospel  Acclamation              Acts 16: 14
Alleluia, alleluia!
Open our heart, O Lord,
to accept the words of your Son.
Alleluia!

Or                                                  2 Cor 8: 9
Alleluia, alleluia!
Lord Jesus was rich,
but he became poor for your sake,
to make you rich out of his poverty..
Alleluia!

GOSPEL                               

A reading from the Gospel according to Luke            16:1-13
You cannot be the slave both of God and of money.

Unjust stewartJesus said to his disciples, 'There was a rich man and he had a steward denounced to him for being wasteful with his property. He called for the man and said, "What is this I hear about you? Draw me up an account of your stewardship because you are not to be my steward any longer." Then the steward said to himself, "Now that my master is taking the stewardship from me, what am I to do? Dig? I am not strong enough. Go begging? I should be too ashamed. Ah, I know what I will do to make sure that when I am dismissed from office there will be some to welcome me into their homes."

Then he called his master's debtors one by one. To the first he said, "How much do you owe my master?" "One hundred measures of oil" was the reply. The steward said, "Here, take your bond; sit down straight away and write fifty". To another he said, "And you, sir, how much do you owe?" "One hundred measures of wheat" was the reply. The steward said, "Here, take your bond and write eighty".

'The master praised the dishonest steward for his astuteness. For the children of this world are more astute in dealing with their own kind than are the children of light.'

'And so I tell you this: use money, tainted as it is, to win you friends, and thus make sure that when it fails you, they will welcome you into the tents of eternity. The man who can be trusted in little things can be trusted in great; the man who is dishonest in little things will be dishonest in great. If then you cannot be trusted with money, that tainted thing, who will trust you with genuine riches? And if you cannot be trusted with what is not yours, who will give you what is your very own?

'No servant can be the slave of two masters: he will either hate the first and love the second, or treat the first with respect and the second with scorn. You cannot be the slave both of God and of money.'

Sliocht as céad Litir Naomh Pól chuig Timóteas                  2:1-8
Ba  cheart go ndéanfaí urnaithe ar son an uiledhuine chun Dé arb áil leis go slánóai an uile dhuine.

Impím ort sa chéad áit go ndéanfaí urnaithe agus achainíocha agus iarratais agus altú ar son an uile dhuine, agus go háirithe ar son ríthe agus an lucht ceannais uile, le súil go bhféadfaimis ár saol a thabhairt go diaganta cráifeach faoi shuaimhneas agus faoi shíocháin. Is maith agus is taitneamhach sin le Dia ár slánaitheoir. Is áil leis go slánófaí an uile dhuine agus go gcuirfidís eolas ar an bhfírinne. Mar níl ann ach aon Dia amháin, agus níl ann ach an t-aon idirghabhálaí amháin idir Dia agus an cine daonna, mar atá an duine Críost Íosa a thug suas é féin in éiric orthu uile; sin í an fhianaise a tugadh ina mhithidí féin; ní bréag atáim a rá ach an fhírinne lom – ceapadh mise i mo bholscaire agus i m’aspal aige chun an creideamh agus an fhírinne a mhúineadh do na gintlithe.

Ba mhaith liom, dá bhrí sin, go mbeadh na fir ag guí gach uile áit agus a lámha tógtha acu go hómósach, gan fearg ná aighneas.

SOISCÉAL    

Sliocht as Soiscéal naofa de réir Naomh Lúcás        16:1-13
Ní féidir libh Dia a riaradh agus an t-airgead.

Unjust stewartDúirt sé lena dheisceabail : “Bhí fear saibhir ann a raibh maor aige, agus gearánadh é seo leis go raibh sé ag scaipeadh a mhaoine. Chuir sé fios air agus dúirt leis: ‘Cad é seo a chluinim mar gheall ort? Tabhair cuntas uait i do mhaoirseacht, óir ní féidir thú a bheith i do mhaor feasta.’ Ansin dúirt an maor ina aigne: ‘Cad a dhéanfaidh mé, óir tá mo mháistir ag baint na maoirseachta díom? Níl neart ionam chun rómhair, ba nár liom dul le déirc. Tá a fhios agam cad a dhéanfaidh mé, ionas, nuair a bheidh mé briste as an maoirseacht, go nglacfaidh siad isteach ina dtithe mé.’

Ghlaoigh sé chuige gach aon duine dá raibh i bhfiacha ag a mháistir, agus dúirt leis an gcéad duine: ‘Cé mhéad atá ag mo mháistir ort?’ Dúirt seisean: ‘Tá céad bairille ola.’ Dúirt sé leis: ‘Tóg do bhille, suigh síos, agus scríobh go tapa caoga.’ Ansin dúirt sé le duine eile: ‘Cé mhéad atá amuigh ortsa?’ Dúirt seisean: ‘Tá céad ceathrú arbhair.’ Dúirt sé leis: ‘Tóg do bhille agus scríobh ochtó.’

Agus mhol an máistir an maor mímhacánta mar go ndearna sé go géarchúiseach é; óir bíonn clann an tsaoil seo níos géarchúisí lena leithéidí féin ná clann an tsolais. Agus deirim féin libh, déanaigí cairde daoibh féin leis an airgead mímhacánta, ionas, nuair a chlisfidh sé, go nglacfaidh siad isteach sibh sna bothanna síoraí. An té a bhíonn iontaofa faoin mbeagán, bíonn sé iontaofa faoin mórán freisin; agus an té a bhíonn mímhacánta faoin mbeagán, bíonn sé mímhacánta faoin mórán freisin. Dá bhrí sin, mura raibh sibh iontaofa faoin airgead mímhacánta, cé a thaobhóidh libh an saibhreas fírinneach? Agus mura raibh sibh iontaofa faoin rud a bhí ar iasacht agaibh, cé thabharfaidh daoibh an rud is libh de sheilbh dhílis?

Ní féidir le sclábha ar bith dhá mháistir a riaradh, óir beidh fuath aige do dhuine acu agus grá aige don duine eile, nó beidh sé ag déanamh dúthrachta do dhuine acu agus ag déanamh neamhshuim den duine eile. Ní féidir libh Dia a riaradh agus an t-airgead.”
