    POPE FRANCIS CALLS FOR PRAYES FOR PEACE AND FOR PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS

    http://www.dublindiocese.ie/sites/default/files/images/pray%20for%20peace%20web%20image.jpg

    Prayer for Peace by Pope Francis (8 June 2014)

    Lord God of peace, hear our prayer!

    We have tried so many times and over so many years to resolve our conflicts by our own powers and by the force of our arms. How many moments of hostility and darkness have we experienced; how much blood has been shed; how many lives have been shattered; how many hopes have been buried… But our efforts have been in vain.

    Now, Lord, come to our aid! Grant us peace, teach us peace; guide our steps in the way of peace. Open our eyes and our hearts, and give us the courage to say: “Never again war!”; “With war everything is lost”. Instil in our hearts the courage to take concrete steps to achieve peace.

    Lord, God of Abraham, God of the Prophets, God of Love, you created us and you call us to live as brothers and sisters. Give us the strength daily to be instruments of peace; enable us to see everyone who crosses our path as our brother or sister. Make us sensitive to the plea of our citizens who entreat us to turn our weapons of war into implements of peace, our trepidation into confident trust, and our quarrelling into forgiveness.

    Keep alive within us the flame of hope, so that with patience and perseverance we may opt for dialogue and reconciliation. In this way may peace triumph at last, and may the words “division”, “hatred” and “war” be banished from the heart of every man and woman. Lord, defuse the violence of our tongues and our hands. Renew our hearts and minds, so that the word which always brings us together will be “brother”, and our way of life will always be that of: Shalom, Peace, Salaam!

    Amen.

    12:00noon Prayer for Peace in the Middle East

     

    Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,

    Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

    …where there is injury, pardon;

    …where there is doubt, faith;

    …where there is despair, hope;

    …where there is darkness, light;

    …where there is sadness, joy;

    O Divine Master,

    grant that I may not so much seek

    …to be consoled as to console;

    …to be understood as to understand;

    …to be loved as to love.

    For it is in giving that we receive;

    …it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;

    …and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. 

     St. Francis of Assisi

     

    6:00pm Prayer for Persecuted Christians

     

    May the Lord support us all the day long,

    ‘til the shadows lengthen and the evening comes,

    and the busy world is hushed,

    and the fever of life is over,

    and our work is done.

    Then in His mercy may He give us

    a safe lodging, and a holy rest, and peace at the last

     Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman

    DUBLIN DIOCESAN PILGRIMAGE TO LOURDES

    badgeLourdes 2014 The Dublin Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes will travel to Our Lady’s Shrine, as is usual each year, from Sunday 7th to Friday 12th September.  We hope that about 175 sick pilgrims will travel as in former years, staying at the Accueil Notre Dame where they are very well looked after by a team of doctors, nurses, chaplains and lay helpers.  If you know of someone in the community who might benefit from the pilgrimage please get in touch with us as soon as possible.  Geraldine, in the Lourdes Office (Phone 01 837 6820), will be able to give you more information and send to you or to the person you have in mind, an Application Form.  All applications must include a completed Medical Report from the family doctor, and acceptance for travel is subject to the decision of our Chief Medical Officer.  We would particularly welcome applications from those who have never travelled before as a sick pilgrim but would also welcome back those who have been with us in the past.  The cost to the Pilgrimage for the care of each sick pilgrim is in excess of €1,000 but because of the generosity of the people in the parishes through the Associate Membership, we are able to offer a much subsidised fare of €460.  However, if finances for a sick pilgrim are a problem, we may be in a position to offer a somewhat reduced fare.

  • SYNOD ON THE FAMILY

    Extraordinary Synod on the Family in October 2014

     

    Family Day Image from Rome October 27 2013

    Prayer to the Holy Family 

    Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
    in you we contemplate
    the splendour of true love,
    to you we turn with trust.

    Holy Family of Nazareth,
    grant that our families too
    may be places of communion and prayer,
    authentic schools of the Gospel
    and small domestic Churches.

    Holy Family of Nazareth,
    may families never again
    experience violence, rejection and division:
    may all who have been hurt or scandalized
    find ready comfort and healing.

    Holy Family of Nazareth,
    may the approaching Synod of Bishops
    make us once more mindful
    of the sacredness and inviolability of the family,
    and its beauty in God’s plan.

    Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
    graciously hear our prayer!

    Amen.

    • Welcome - Failte

      Welcome as you browse our Parish Website.  Whoever you are we hope your visit, however brief, will give you a glimpse of the life of our parish community. We aspire, with God's help, to live our lives rooted in the timeless values of the Gospel in a rapidly changing world, nourished in our spiritual lives by the grace of the Sacraments. As a parish community within the universal church, we try with God's help, to live individual lives and build a community rooted in Faith and Hope and Love. This is both a challenging and enriching call to live in love of God and of each other, in imitation of Christ, with a care which extends way beyond our parish boundaries.. If you're an involved parishioner we hope you'll find any information you need about the parish on this site.  If you live in the Drimnagh area and don't have contact with the parish we hope some of what you read here will encourage you to make contact.  If you're from Drimnagh and visiting the site from abroad welcome home. Let us know how you're getting on and be assured that we pray constantly in the church for all those from the parish who have spread their wings to live in the four corners of the earth.  To everybody who visits this site may you be nourished by the Word of God which you can read here and be blessed according to your need at this time. 

      Canon John Flaherty and Fr. Dave Brannigan
