Wishing all Fathers a lovely Fathers Day.

Father’s Day
Mary Frances Bogle

Over the years
As we grow old,
We remember our father
So brave and bold.

In the garden,
Leaning on the plough,
He would listen to me;
I see him now.

He would give advice
And understand;
He was always there
To lend a hand.

God made fathers
Strong and firm,
For he knew our lives
Would have great concerns.

So he gave us fathers
To teach us to pray,
And guide our lives,
And show us the way.

So on his day
Let’s take the time
To say “Thanks, dad.
I’m glad you’re mine.”

An Exam Prayer

God stay close to me today
Guide my study and light my way.

Ease my nerves and comfort me
With peace and love so tenderly.

May I remember the things I need
And understand all I study and read.

May I strive to give my best
And do myself justice in each test.

May the topics I know and like appear
On the exam paper to lessen my fear.

And during the moments I may feel stressed
I’ll try to remember the ways I’m blessed.

And if there are times that I feel at sea,
Help me to trust that you’re here with me.

AMEN

Wishing all exams students all the best in your exams.

A Pastoral Message from Bishop Kevin Doran, Bishop of Elphin.

As we awake to the reality that Irish people have voted by a significant majority for abortion, my thoughts go out to the thousands of good people, across our Diocese and across the nation, who worked so hard to protect the right to life both of women and their unborn children. I include among them our clergy who have sought to offer pastoral leadership. Huge numbers of you, motivated by real compassion, also voted No. I share your sadness.

There will be plenty of time for analysis in the days ahead. For now, I want to encourage you with the thought that what was true yesterday remains true today. Every human being without exception has an inherent right to life which comes from God, in whose image we are all made.

In many countries where abortion has been legal for years Christians continue to bear faithful witness. That hope must inspire us now as we proclaim anew the Gospel of Life, both in the political arena and in the renewal of our pastoral outreach.

 

As Church we will continue to explore effective ways to support women and their unborn children, families in difficulty and women who have had an abortion. I will be inviting people to actively engage in conversation about the shaping of that pastoral outreach in the coming months. We also need to find new ways of helping Irish women and men in this generation to rediscover the dignity of human life from conception to natural death.

St John speaks of Jesus as “a light shining in the darkness; a light that the darkness cannot overcome”.

My prayer for you is that the light of Christ will fill your hearts, especially in these days, so that you in your turn may be “a light to the world”. (Mt. 5)

 

Kevin Doran, Bishop of Elphin
