Thought for the Week

"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else;

         You are the one getting burned"           Guatama Budda (563-483BC) Founder of Buddhism.


IMEALL BOIRNE CLUSTER MISSION / RETREAT:  It is proposed to hold a Mission/Retreat during the coming year incorporating the four parishes – Corofin, Crusheen, Ruan and Tubber. In order to offer what is most appealing to the people, your thoughts on these questions would be appreciated:

  1. What type of mission/retreat would you most like?
  2. If you would like to attend, what time of day/evening is best for you?
  3. As this is a cluster event, where do you think is the best venue for it?
  4. Are there particular themes/topics you would like to consider during the mission/retreat?
  5. Any other suggestions?

CONSECRATION OF IRELAND TO THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY:  Ireland will be consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on August 15, the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  The consecration will take place at Knock Shrine, during the annual Novena to Our Lady of Knock.  Cardinal Sean Brady, Archbishop of Armagh and primate of all Ireland will lead the Act of Consecration.  Archbishop Eamon Martin, Coadjutor Archbishop of Armagh will be the principal celebrant and preacher at the mass on that day. Bishops, priests and people from across the country will be in attendance.  The prayer of consecration will entrust families, homes and the dioceses of Ireland to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary and call on her to watch over the young people of Ireland.  As the universal Church is currently celebrating a Year of Faith, it is fitting that the Act of Consecration call to mind the woman of faith par excellence and asks for her prayers for the people of this country.
