Gospel Responses Convention musicA. Many people devote time to works of service and caring. Time given to others enriches all our lives. Such witness helps children to make choices based on sound Christian values which offer an antidote to consumerism. Research has shown that marriage is best able to provide the stability that allows children to flourish. This is not to deny that goodness is to be found in other family structures. It is important to remember that a family is holy, not because it is perfect but because God's grace is at work in it.
The presence of caring parents and a strong foundation in Christian values can be vital supports to adolescents as they face the pressures of modern life. It is in the home that children learn the message of Christ for the first time. Family prayer, family meals, family rituals, the use of holy water, the displaying of sacred images - all convey a Christian approach to life. Coming together to celebrate the sacraments and the feasts of the Liturgical Year strengthens the bonds of unity within the local and wider church. As Christians our hope is rooted in Christ. Gathering around him at Mass gives us strength to develop a loving, sensitive, forgiving and nurturing home environment.
Parents are the first and best teachers in the ways of faith. The teachers in school with the support of parents, chaplains, diocesan advisers, members of religious orders and others are achieving great things. At parish level, along with diocesan and order priests there are youth and family ministers working to pass on the faith to the next generation.
The Church owes a debt of gratitude to all of these people and agencies and the fruits of their work are to be seen in many signs of hope and new growth. Children's faith is best nourished when home, school and parish work together in partnership. The people were living in an uneasy situation, marked by a sense of drudgery, delusion and pessimism that is convinced 'my eyes will never again see joy'. What Jesus will do is to come to where the human being suffers and is ill at ease, and bring healing. The healing presence of Jesus, as described in today's gospel, provides a stark contrast with the dejection in Job's heart.
Lourdes Invalid Fund A special collection will take place at all Masses next weekend. It also subsidises the travel of essential care personnel. Please support this worthy cause. Patrick's for their generosity and help during the recent Church Gate Collection in aid of Edel House. The healing message of Jesus' gospel is balm to the body and soul of those in need. Paul is one of those whose duty it is to preach the gospel. What the preacher must do, Paul says, in order to share in the blessing of the gospel, is to preach it to each person in a way that reflects where they are.
Refreshments will be served. We had more articles than we had room for this week. Those omitted will be included next week. He will cover the principles and practicalities of running the Alpha Course. For further details phone Sr. February o Coll. A leper came to Jesus and pleaded on his knees: Jesus immediately sent him away and sternly ordered him, 'Mind you say nothing to anyone, but go and show yourself to the priest and make the offering for your healing prescribed by Moses as evidence of your recovery.
Even so, people from all around would come to him. The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, 'If a swelling or scab or shiny spot appears on a man's skin, a case of leprosy of the skin is to be suspected. The man must be taken to Aaron, the priest, or to one of the priests who are his sons. The priest must declare him unclean; he is suffering from leprosy of the head. A man infected with leprosy must wear his clothing torn and his hair disordered; he must shield his upper lip and cry, 'Unclean, unclean.
R You are my refuge, O Lord; You fill me with the joy of salvation. Happy the man whose offence is forgiven, whose sin is remitted. O happy the man to whom the Lord imputes no guilt, in whose spirit is no guile. R But now I have acknowledged my sins; my guilt I did not hide. R Rejoice, rejoice in the Lord, exult, you just! O come, ring out your joy, all you upright of heart. Whatever you eat, whatever you drink, whatever you do at all, do it for the glory of God. Never do anything offensive to anyone - to Jews or Greeks or to the Church of God; just as I try to be helpful to everyone at all times, not anxious for my own advantage but for the advantage of everyone else, so that they may be saved.
Take me for your model, as I take Christ. Each generation can see an 'improvement' in the manner of dealing with people with what were, at first, 'unusual' health conditions. In our own time, the touching of suffering from AIDS was seen as breaking a taboo and recognising the dignity of those suffering from the effects of that virus. In today's gospel Jesus is recounted as not only healing the leper but actually 'touching' him.
The more ancient treatment of people with leprous sores, 'Unclean, unclean' is in marked contrast to Jesus stretching out his hand to touch and heal the man with leprosy. What a wonderful night we all had. It was a brilliant way to begin the Christmas festivities and all those present made a great effort to enjoy themselves. The dinner was fantastic. The music was provided by Con Twomey and he really got the feet dancing.
The floor was full for the night. There were many spot prizes on the night to add to the festive fun. Our sincere thanks to all who supported us on the night. Their support made the night a memorable one. On December 15th we held our annual get together in the House at Roche's Buildings. Over 60 people attended. We had great food, music, song and dance as well as the odd alcoholic drink or two!!!.
Music on the night was by "The Krangston King". The talent under one roof was phenomenal and a great party atmosphere ensued for many hours. It as a great surprise to all when Santa made an unscheduled stop during this very busy time and actually sang for about 20 minutes. He really made the night and he promised that he would call to us all again on Christmas Eve!!!!! It just shows the generosity of businesses, and it is nice to see such demonstrations of good will towards the communities in the Cork area, The House is open every Tuesday and Thursday night.
Please feel free to call. Wilma the whale is dead. She died from a combination of factors, muscle damage, kidney failure and dehydration. She was eleven years old and weighed several tons. This was revealed after a post-mortem we performed by a very experienced vet. She was a very graceful animal. She had not been sedated at any stage and did a lot of banging and thrashing about which made it difficult to control her.
Her species homeland is in Disco Bay, Greenland where weather conditions can be quite severe. Jonah was one of God's reluctant prophets in the old testament, he did not heed God's wish. His boat sank, he was swallowed by a whale and he spent three days in the whale's belly. He was truly repentant for his disobedience and he prayed for forgiveness. God delivered him to safety. Young people often choose 'models' whose pattern of behaviour they wish to follow. Christian disciples have Christ as their model, but Paul is now explicitly offering himself as a model to emulate and imitate.
It is a remarkable thing to say: Camellia Susan Stone Why not visit the coffee shop and enjoy home baking! The Army massed bands will play in a charity concert in the city Hall on Friday 14th February. Proceeds will go to the Defence Forces Welfare Fund. Refreshments will be served in the parish hall after the presentation and all are welcome. When Jesus returned to Capernaum, word went round that he was back; and so many people collected that there was no room left, even in front of the door. He was preaching the word to them when some people came bringing him a paralytic carried by four men, but as the crowds made it impossible to get the man to him, they stripped the roof over the place where Jesus was; and when they had made an opening, they lowered the stretcher on which the paralytic lay.
Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralytic, 'My child, your sins are forgiven. Who can forgive sins but God? Jesus inwardly aware that this was what they were thinking, said to them, 'Why do you have these thoughts in your hearts? Which of these is easier: Thus says the Lord: No need to recall the past, no need to think about what was done before. See, I am doing a new deed, even now it comes to light, can you not see it? Yes, I am making a road in the wilderness, paths in the wilds.
The people I have formed for myself will sing my praises. Jacob, you have not invoked me, you have not troubled yourself, Israel, on my behalf. Instead you have burdened me with your sins, troubled me with your iniquities. I it is, I it is, who must blot out everything and not remember your sins. R Heal my soul for I have sinned against you.
Happy the man who considers the poor and the weak. The Lord will save him in the day of evil, will guard him, give him life, make him happy in the land and will not give him up to the will of his foes. R The Lord will help him on his bed of pain, he will bring him back from sickness to health. As for me, I said, 'Lord, have mercy on me, heal my soul for I have sinned against you. Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel from age to age.
I swear by God's truth, there is no Yes and No about what we say to you. That is why it is 'through him' that we answer Amen to the praise of God. Remember it is God himself who assures us all, and you, of our standing in Christ, and has anointed us, marking us with his seal and giving us the pledge, the Spirit, that we carry in our hearts. This Isaiah reading is seen by the Church as a a prophecy of the healing and divine forgiveness described in today's gospel.
There is a sense of expectation in this forward-looking text. The Lord is reported as saying 'I am doing a new deed' and is depicted as not remembering people's sins. People are constantly looking for something new and equally keen that God 'not remember' their sins. The gift of the Spirit, mentioned in this text is what gives Paul, and Christian preachers like him, the assurance and self-confidence to preach the positive message.
Yes is the word, as it was the word associated with Jesus himself.

Patrick's Parish Accounts for One day when John's disciples and the Pharisees were fasting, some people came and said to Jesus, 'Why is it that John's disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not? As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they could not think of fasting. But the time will come for the bridegroom to be taken away from them, and then, on that day, they will fast. No one sews a piece of unshrunken cloth on an old cloak; if he does, the patch pulls away from it, the new from the old, and the tear gets worse. And nobody puts new wine into old wineskins; if he does, the wine will burst the skins, and the wine is lost and the skins too.
New wine, new wineskins! I am going to lure her and lead her out into the wilderness and speak to her heart. There she will respond to me as she did when she was young, as she did when she came out of the land of Egypt. I will betroth you to myself for ever, betroth you with integrity and justice, with tenderness and love; I will betroth you to myself with faithfulness, and you will come to know the Lord.
R The Lord is compassion and love. My soul, give thanks to the Lord, all my being, bless his holy name. My soul, give thanks to the Lord and never forget all his blessings. R It is he who forgives all your guilt, who heals every one of your ills, who redeems your life from the grave, who crowns you with love and compassion. R The Lord is compassion and love, slow to anger and rich in mercy.
He does not treat us according to our sins nor repay us according to our faults. R So far as the east is from the west so far does he remove our sins. As a father has compassion on his sons, the Lord has pity on those who fear him. Unlike other people, we need no letters of recommendation either to you or from you, because you are yourselves our letter, written in our hearts, that anybody can see and read, and it is plain that you are a letter from Christ, drawn up by us, and written, not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on stone tablets but on the tablets of your living hearts.
Before God, we are confident of this through Christ: He is the one who has given us the qualifications to be the administrators of this new covenant, which is not a covenant of written letters but of the Spirit: This is a text that tells of the love with which God graces the people. The common theme in this reading and today's Gospel is marriage. In the Old Testament we have the 'betrothing' of the people and in the Gospel we have the implicit self-description of Jesus as 'bridegroom'.
At the start of this passage Paul is vexed that the people in Corinth were seeking some kind of a 'letter of recommendation'. He tells them that 'all our qualifications' come from God and that their covenant is one of the Spirit rather than one of 'written letters'. Starting on Wednesday March 8th. This is an opportunity to listen to my body, to reflect and to heal from within, to share with others and to be led towards inner healing.

With God on our side who can be against us? Since God did not spare his own Son, but gave him up to benefit us all, we may be certain, after such a gift, that he will not refuse anything he can give.
Could anyone accuse those that God has chosen? When God acquits, could any one condemn? He not only died for us - he rose from the dead, and there at God's right hand he stands and pleads for us.

They put before us the contrast between life and death, light and darkness, grace and sin. They ask us to choose life. They assure us that the God who created the human race will never abandon it. They promise newness of life in Christ. The first readings are chosen, as always, to harmonise with the Gospels. They are also meant to take us through some of the great moments in the history of salvation, as part of the catechesis which characterises Lent.
The Second Readings harmonise with the First Readings and the Gospels, and try to provide a link between them. On occasion, some of our readings can seem remarkably 'up to date'. This text must resonate with disciples who have been affected by the tsunami or hurricane Katrina in Louisiana last August. This covenant, between God and 'every living thing', is the first that is recorded in the Bible. This text admirably sums up the Christian message and the life of the disciple, beginning with Baptism. At the start of Lent the purpose of our worship and of our annual Lenten observance is clearly stated: Christ died for us, to lead us to God.
This is worth celebrating.

March o Coll. Second Sunday of Lent Jesus took with him Peter and James and John and led them up a high mountain where they could be alone by themselves.
There in their presence he was transfigured: Elijah appeared to them with Moses; and they were talking with Jesus. Then Peter spoke to Jesus. And a cloud came, covering them in shadow; and there came a voice from the cloud, 'This is my Son, the Beloved. As they came down the mountain he warned them to tell no one what they had seen, until after the Son of Man had risen from the dead. They observed the warning faithfully, though among themselves they discussed what 'rising from the dead' could mean. God put Abraham to the test.
There you shall offer him as a burnt offering, on a mountain I will point out to you. Then he stretched out his hand and seized the knife to kill his son. But the angel of the Lord called to him from heaven. You have not refused me your son, your only son. Abraham took the ram and offered it as a burnt-offering in place of his son.
The angel of the Lord called Abraham a second time from heaven. Your descendants shall gain possession of the gates of their enemies. All the nations of the earth shall bless themselves by your descendants, as a reward for your obedience. R I will walk in the presence of the Lord in the land of the living.
I trusted even when I said: O precious in the eyes of the Lord. Your servant, Lord, Your servant am I;. A thanksgiving sacrifice I make: I will call on the Lord's name R. My vows to the Lord I will fulfil. Lent is a special season of preparation, when we take time out from our busy lives to pray, when we make an effort to sacrifice something for the benefit of others, and also take the time to reflect on and take action for justice.
Looking at the Lenten Hunger Cloth again this year, we can get an insight into the lives of people who are less fortunate than ourselves, especially the people of Latin America. In , Trocaire's Lenten Campaign focuses on the tragedy of child labour in Nicaragua. The Eucharist is central in this image: It is a reminder of one of the promises of the Last Supper, when Jesus asked us to pray for our daily bread. Bread is more than just food: If you look closely at the Hunger Cloth, you can see a red ribbon draped all around the images, which illustrates how the Eucharist binds all of us together in willing communion with Christ.
Bread is God's gift to humanity, yet going clockwise around the Hunger Cloth the second image reminds us that there are still too many empty plates around the world. Because the Eucharist reminds us that the whole world is our community, it is our responsibility to share our 'daily bread' with those who have none. A we move around the cloth we see the image of women raising their voices and beating their empty pots. This form of demonstration originated in Latin America and it shows how women can raise their voices against poverty and injustice in both their lives, and the lives of their children.
These women protest at the lack of opportunity for their children to reach their full human potential. The image of the child on the street represents the plight of poor children in this world. These children work long hours on rubbish dumps, coffee plantations and crowded streets, just to earn the measly sums of money that their families need to survive. As we return clockwise to the first image of the Eucharist, we recognise the image of the Holy Spirit, depicted as a dove flying free from the cross.
Through the Holy Spirit, we can pray that the people of Latin America, especially the children, will have the freedom to stay at school, to overcome poverty and to live their lives with dignity. We have worked our way around the Lenten Cloth like hands moving around a clock. Nowadays, when we all have so little time, the Lenten Cloth reminds us that it is through our understanding and celebration of the Eucharist that the daily work of human hands can become our spiritual nourishment.
The Latin American artists who made this cloth wrote along the bottom in Spanish, " hoy arroz, sangue e vida, Cristo quita hambre y sed", which translates, "Today Rice, Blood and Life, Christ takes away Hunger and Thirst. Donations can be placed in the collection box beside it. A reading from Peter's first letter. The sacrifice of Jesus is noted by Paul who points out to the Roman disciples that the risen Lord pleads with the Father on our behalf. Why not read it again and see can we answer the questions posed by Paul. From early Christian times this remarkable story of Abraham and his son, Isaac, and the 'test' to which the father was put, have been understood as foretelling how the heavenly Father sent his Son, and in this case the sacrifice did actually take place.
Mass at 10am, 12am and 6pm Vigil Mass on Thursday 16th at 6pm. Five Monday evenings during March starting on Monday March 6th 7. A talk by Fr. Jerome has lived and worked in the Holy Land for over 40 years. Welcome into the Christian Community. Bernard is now restore to good health and his very informative Holy Family News is back in publication Third Sunday of Lent Just before the Jewish Passover Jesus went up to Jerusalem, and in the Temple he found people selling cattle and sheep and pigeons, and the money changers sitting at their counters there.
Making a whip out of some cord, he drove them all out of the Temple, cattle and sheep as well, scattered the money changers' coins, knocked their tables over and said to the pigeon-sellers, 'Take all this out of here and stop turning my Father's house into a market. Zeal for your house will devour me. The Jews intervened and said, 'What sign can you show us to justify what you have done? During his stay in Jerusalem for the Passover many believed in his name when they saw the signs that he gave, but Jesus knew them all and did not trust himself to them; he never needed evidence about any man; he could tell what a man had in him.
God spoke all these words. He said, 'I am the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. You shall have no gods except me. You shall not utter the name of the Lord your God to misuse it, for the Lord will not leave unpunished the man who utters his name to misuse it. Remember the sabbath day and keep it holy. Honour your father and your mother so that you may have a long life in the land that the Lord your God has given to you. You shall not kill. You shall not commit adultery.
You shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour. You shall not covet your neighbour's house. You shall not covet your neighbour's wife, or his servant, man or woman, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is his. R You, Lord, have the message of eternal life.
The law of the Lord is perfect, it revives the soul. The rule of the Lord is to be trusted, it gives wisdom to the simple. R The precepts of the Lord are right, they gladden the heart. The command of the Lord is clear, it gives light to the eyes. R The fear of the Lord is holy, abiding for ever. The decrees of the Lord are truth and all of them just. R They are more to be desired than gold, than the purest of gold and sweeter are they than honey, than honey from the comb.
While the Jews demand miracles and the Greeks look for wisdom, here are we preaching a crucified Christ; to the Jews an obstacle that they cannot get over, to the pagans madness, but to those who have been called, whether Jews or Greeks, a Christ who is the power and the wisdom of God. For God's foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God's weakness stronger than human strength. The purposes behind the choice of readings for the Sundays in Lent is to encourage repentance and renewal of our faith.
This reading provides a rare opportunity to recall the ten commandments in their original context in which 'God spoke all these words'. Going back to these basic rules of behaviour that have been with us for so can provide a fertile context for our repentance during Lent. This reading states the challenges being faced at the time Paul was preaching. The Jews were looking for miracles, the Greeks were seeking to possess wisdom. Paul was preaching about Christ, one who suffered the death penalty, quite a difference isn't it?
Finbarre's Cathedral on Wednesday 29th March at 8pm. Miracle drugs are nothing new - Moses had two tablets that could cure the world's ills. The foolish person seeks happiness in tomorrow, the wise person finds it today. A gossiper burns the scandal at both ends. Bite off more than you can chew. This is an expression we use to indicate someone who has taken on more than they can manage, perhaps greedily. This can be traced back to the 's in America and the popular habit of chewing tobacco. This tobacco was produced in lengths and it was common practice to offer others a 'bite'.
A greedy person would take as big a bite as possible and then be unable to chew it. They sometimes tried to separate a piece to keep for afterwards and hide it from the person who had offered them the free bite. We included an article last week on the Trocaire Lenten Cloth see above and invited people to take some time to study it. The Cloth is now located on the special Lenten display stand inside the altar rails. Patrick's Parish as Ministers of the Word.

A reminder to people who have not yet changed over to the new envelope collection system. You need not be a taxpayer to use this system which is confidential and will not be disclosed under any circumstances. For taxpayers the money you give to the Church is after paying tax and the Church can, as it is classed as a charity, reclaim that tax back from the Revenue to be used for church matters.
The church will look after any paperwork involved -- you will have minimal input - just to sign a form which the church will supply. All you need to do is pick up a box of envelopes at the sacristy. This will have an assigned number for your household and can also be used at Holy Family church. At the beginning of next year the parish priest will issue a receipt to you. Special collections throughout the year are also covered in this system as are any dues paid -- just mark dues on one of the envelopes and it will be recorded under a numbered arrangement.
Many thanks for your help in changing to the new system. Bernard is now restored to good health and his very informative Holy Family News is back in publication The good news this week is from the holy Gospel according to John 3: Jesus said to Nicodemus: Yes, God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not be lost but may have eternal life. For God sent his Son into the world not to condemn the world, but so that through him the world might be saved.
No one who believes in him will be condemned; but whoever refuses to believe is condemned already, because he has refused to believe in the name of God's only Son. On these grounds is sentence pronounced: And indeed, everybody who does wrong hates the light and avoids it, for fear his actions should be exposed; but the man who lives by the truth comes out into the light, so that it may be plainly seen that what he does is done in God. A Reading from the book of Chronicles. All the heads of the priesthood, and the people too, added infidelity to infidelity, copying all the shameful practices of the nations and defiling the Temple that the Lord had consecrated for himself in Jerusalem.
