Santa’s prayer before setting out tonight

The sleigh was was all packed, the reindeer were fed, But Santa still knelt by the side of his bed, “Dear Father, ” he prayed, “Be with me tonight. There’s much work to do and my schedule is tight. My sack will hold toys to grant all kids’ wishes. The supply will be endless like the loaves and the fishes. I can do all these things, Lord, only through You. I just need your blessing, then it’s easy to do. I do this only to honor the birth [...]

Nollaig Bhaile Phib raised €2,135,64 for the Society of St Vincent dePaul

The 2018 Christmas Fayre was a great success and despite rain bringing events to an early halt, the Christmas Fayre success warranted all the hard work by the very dedicated committee.

“The Medal” in the modern world

The Feast of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.

It would be easy to dismiss the Miraculous Medal and its novena as a relic of a way of being Church that is over, and to be of the opinion that this way of expressing devotion to Our Lady is, at best, as irrelevant as gas lights and the horse drawn tram. On some levels, I agree with the the opinions, the images that we use to promote this devotion [...]

An Inconvenient Grief

 

Mark Kelly (middle) Before departing for the front, uniformed men flocked to have their photograph taken as a memento for their loved ones. Later, for grieving relatives without a grave to visit, these images often became the focus of their mourning.

Mark Kelly was a draper’s porter in 1911, single and living at home, by 1918 he was a married man with two daughters, but he died that October, just weeks before the end of the War.
