We remember in our prayers Josephine Murphy, Ballina and all those whose anniversaries occur around this time and we also remember all who have passed away during the coronavirus pandemic. May they rest in peace.


My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you in my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, please come spiritually into my heart. I embrace you now as if you were already there and I untie myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen
Based on a prayer of St Alphonsus Liguori

“The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty -- it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There's a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.” Mother Teresa
