Thought for the Week:


'Every moment and every event of everyone's life on earth
Plants something in their soul'      (Thomas Merton)

 

Road Safety Awareness: Bishop Fintan has urged all road users to take extra care on the road this October Bank Holiday weekend. He says: “Road safety awareness is the parable of the Good Samaritan in action within our communities today.  I am thinking here of all road users: motorists, motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians, and we all have a role in helping each other even if we do not know one another personally. I firmly believe that prayer and reflection can change our driving behaviour, calm our aggression, remind us of the spiritual, moral and physical importance of what we are about to do. In this context I recommend the following dedicated prayers for motorist which can be said before driving.”


 

 

17th century paidir as Gaeilge

 

In ainm an Athar le bua,

In ainm an Mhic a d’fhulaing an phian,

In ainm an Spiorad Naoimh le neart,

Muire is a Mac linn inár dtriall. Áiméan!

 

 

A contemporary prayer in the English language:

 

Holy Mother, hear our prayer,

Keep us in your loving care,

Whatever the perils of the way,

Let us not add to them this day.

So to our caution and attention,

We add a prayer for your protection,

To beg God’s blessing on this car,

To travel safely near and far.

Amen.

'For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I, in the midst of them'
(Matthew 18:20)


Mission Sunday:  The theme for Mission Sunday this year is: “Every Christian is a Missionary.” Since this year is also the Jubilee Year of Mercy, we may add: “Every Christian is a Missionary of Mercy,” for the service of mercy is central to the Church’s missionary outreach.

Thought for the Week
"Blessed is the person who is too busy to worry in the daytime

and too sleepy to worry at night". (Leo Ackman)

Mission Sunday: The people in Killaloe Diocese have been urged to support missionaries working in some of the world’s poorest countries by donating during the Mission Sunday collection. The theme for World Mission Sunday in Ireland this year 2016 is "Every Christian is a Missionary".                        As we thank you for your wonderful generosity to the Missions over the years we invite you to please continue to help our young churches to share the gift of faith though your prayer and whatever financial assistance you can.                     

Readers and Eucharistic Ministers: Lists of Readers and Eucharistic Ministers are being prepared for the coming Church Year which commences with the First Sunday of Advent 27th November 2016.

Ruan/Dysart Senior Citizens committee would like to thank all those who contributed to their recent church gate collection.  The amount raised was €391.20.

The Craft Morning in Toonagh has been such a success that it will now be held on Wednesday as well Thursday mornings from 11am. Anyone interested in learning more about any craft is welcome, someone will help - or find help - to get things started. Patterns, recipes & tips are shared in a warm atmosphere. If a parent has a child & is wondering if they can attend, they'll be made welcome to come and have a chat over a 'cuppa'

EU Anti-Trafficking Day: Every year, since 2007, October 18th has been designated EU Anti-Trafficking Day. One might have hoped on this, the 10th Anti-Trafficking Day, that we would not be facing the reality that, rather than decreasing, human trafficking is actually on the increase. Of particular concern is the trafficking of women and girls for exploitation in the sex trade. This is the fastest growing crime internationally. It may surprise you, but even far-flung towns and villages in Ireland are not exempt from the forced prostitution of vulnerable women and children. Act to Prevent Trafficking (APT), a faith-based organisation, working with more than seventy groups in the Turn off the Red Light campaign, is calling on the Government to enact the 2015 Bill to criminalise demand for sexual services – as has already been done in Northern Ireland. What can you, your parish, your community do? Take action by praying that this huge injustice may be eliminated, by raising awareness of the facts of human trafficking and by calling on your TDs to lobby the Dail to ensure that this Bill becomes law. www.aptireland.org E.m. info@aptireland.org.

Minor Club News:  Under 13 Champions: Ruan had a great win over Broadford in a most exciting and high scoring Under 13C final which went to extra time played in Eire Óg Grounds on Saturday last.  It wasn't until the second half of extra time that Ruan took control and won on a score of 5.15 to 4.11. Ruan went through the championship unbeaten against Whitegate, Cratloe, Broadford, Ennistymon and Broadford again in the final.
