SISTER of Charity

IN THE CARE OF

Earthman Bellaire Funeral Home

Sister Mary Clotilde Hegarty, CCVI, a Sister of Charity of the Incarnate Word, Houston, Texas passed away on June 8, 2022. May she now enjoy the joy of God’s presence for all eternity.

Sister Mary Clotilde was born Julia Elizabeth in Cork City, County Cork, Ireland, to Michael and Elizabeth (Kearney) Hegarty. She entered the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word in October, 1946 at St Michael’s Convent, Co. Clare, Ireland. Her formation continued upon her arrival at Villa de Matel in June, 1949, where she made her Perpetual Profession of Vows on August 15, 1954.

Sister Clotilde felt drawn to the field of education and received a teacher’s certificate from the State of Texas, attended Sacred Heart Dominican College in Houston where she was awarded a Bachelor of Arts degree, and received a Master of Arts in Theology from Notre Dame University. Sister Clotilde began her many years of educating students and expressing her love for God and others by being one of seven Sisters who opened Our Lady of Fatima School in Texas City, Texas. She spent several years there before becoming the Assistant Mistress of Novices at the Motherhouse, Villa de Matel, Houston, TX. After six years, she returned to teaching at St. Frances Cabrini School, Alexandria, LA and Dominican College, Houston, TX. In 1968, she taught Theology courses in different houses of the Congregation before she started teaching at St. Francis of Assisi, Houston, TX and again at Dominican College, Houston, TX. In 1970, she ministered as Parish Coordinator of Religious Education for St. Mary’s Parish in Texas City, TX for seven years. In 1984, Sister Clotilde went to Kenya and taught at St. Joseph Minor Seminary in Molo, Kenya. She immediately fell in love with the people and the country. With her master’s degree, she accepted a teaching position at St. Mary’s Major Seminary, Molo, Nakuru Diocese, Kenya and taught there for 18 years. In 2008, she retired from active ministry and devoted the rest of her life to prayer ministry initially at Marian Convent and then at Placidus Place, at Villa de Matel, Motherhouse of the Congregation.

Sister Clotilde is survived by many nieces and nephews.

With a full and grateful heart, deep appreciation is extended to all those who cared for Sister Mary Clotilde at Placidus Place.

Sister Mary Clotilde’s body will be received at the Immaculate Conception Chapel, Villa De Matel, 6510 Lawndale Street, Houston, Texas at: 5 PM on Tuesday, June 14, 2022, followed by Evening Praise and a celebration of her life.

Irish Catholic Nun Who Formed Catholic Priests in Kenya Eulogized as “mother figure”

Late Sr. Mary Clotilde Hegarty.

By Magdalene Kahiu

Nakuru, 12 June, 2022 / 9:50 pm (ACI Africa).

Late Sr. Mary Clotilde Hegarty, a native of Ireland who, for close to two decades, participated in the formation of Major Seminarians in Kenya, has been eulogized as a “mother figure”.

Catholic Priests and Laity who interacted with Sr. Mary at St. Mary’s Propaedeutic Molo Seminary in the Catholic Diocese of Nakuru where she was part of the formation team for 18 years expressed their fond memories of the member of the Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, Houston, Texas (CCVI) who died on June 8; she was to turn 97 on June 24.

Fr. Casmir Odundo, a member of the Clergy of Kenya’s Nakuru Diocese, told ACI Africa during the June 10 interview that Sr. Mary “was the mother figure in the Seminary. She was the feminine aspect in our formation.”

Fr. Odundo favorably compared the late Catholic Nun who joined CCVI in October 1946 where she made her Perpetual Profession on 15 August 1954 to the Blessed Virgin Mary. He said, “She lived the role of Mary among the disciples in the upper room during the Pentecost. Mary was always there.”

The Kenyan Catholic who was enrolled at St. Mary’s Major Seminary in 2008 recalled the interest Sr. Mary had in ensuring a balanced formation of future Priests.

“She taught us to respect women. She reminded us of our own mothers and sisters. That is important because you are forming men who will be expected to work with both men and women,” said the Priest who is currently undertaking a Master’s Degree in Church History at the Rome-based Pontifical University of the Holy Cross.

Fr. Odundo said that the Catholic Nun who taught English and Salvation History at the Seminary believed in the ability of all her students.

The Catholic Priest who was part of the last class that Sr. Mary had before she retired from active ministry to devote her life to prayer in the U.S. recalled, “In her last days in the Seminary, she brought pictures of Seminarians who had died while in formation. She put them in the library so that we can pray for them.”

He added in reference to Sr. Mary, “I think she was simply irreplaceable as it was very difficult to get her replacement after she left in 2008.”

In a message shared with ACI Africa, Fr. Thomas Nyutu recalls how Sr. Mary “salvaged” his journey to the Priesthood.

“We were in St. Mary’s Seminary Molo in 1993 during the Nyayo era when any kind of theatre art was viewed suspiciously. The Seminary system had also been bitten by the bug and our drama team was at stake,” Fr. Nyutu says in the June 11 message.

The Kenyan Priest who serves as the Rector of St. Joseph Molo Minor Seminary continues, “One Valentine Shidiga and his companion, Thomas Nyutu, wrote a little play that found its way to the stage to receive a standing ovation. But the lines seemed to hit hard on the Seminary administration.”

Fr. Nyutu recalls that during the presentation, one of the Priests at the seminary “cynically laughed his heart out while the Rector adjusted his specs a thousand times in the course of the sinful scenes.”

He adds that following the presentation of the play, they were summoned to the “dreaded office”.

Fr. Nyutu recalls that in the office, one of the formators, the late Fr. James Mabele, “uttered, nay, muttered very few words under his hissing breath: ‘Young men, go and pack!’”

Trending

“And that is where the gentle iron lady of the Seminary ventured where even demons dreaded: Sr. Mary Clotilde Hergaty took offense and came to our defense,” the Kenyan Priests says in his message shared with ACI Africa.

“I don’t know what transpired behind those closed doors but this gentle soul literally milked the lion while sitting on a porcupine,” he further says, and continues, “The rest is history as this writer is now Very Rev. Fr. Thomas Nyutu, the Rector of St. Joseph Seminary and residing a stone-throw away from the house Sr. Clotilde lived in some decades ago.”

“May this gentlest soul receive her eternal reward with the many Priests that passed through her hands at St. Mary’s Seminary,” Fr. Nyutu further says about the Irish-born Catholic Nun who started her teaching ministry in Kenya at St. Joseph Minor Seminary Molo in 1984 before joining the formation team at St. Mary’s Propaedeutic Molo Seminary.

For Fr. Julius Rotich, Sr. Mary was “good in her spiritual life.”

“She was motherly and a mentor. Sister was approachable and she gave us a very listening ear,” the member of the Clergy of Kenya’s Kericho Diocese told ACI Africa about the late Catholic Nun who taught him from January to December 1992 .

On his part, the Station Manager of Radio Arise of the Catholic Diocese of Homabay recalls Sr. Mary as “a very kind and motherly person.”

“She was good to us and impacted our lives,” Fr. Joshua Mege told ACI Africa, adding that he always remembers Sr. Mary’s talks, which have “impacted on my life.”

Arthur Kassima, one of Sr. Mary’s former students, said the late Catholic Nun “had a very good heart.”

“You could tell she has a good heart by how she always acted. She loved us, always motivated us, telling us what to do and what not to do,” said Mr. Kassima, who was enrolled at St. Mary’s Propaedeutic Molo Seminary from August 1999 to January 2000.

He added, “I always felt like I had an angel. With her heart, she was just a different person, very unique. She was motherly and always ready to assist.”

The chairman of the Mary Mount Lukenya Catholic Parish of Machakos Diocese credited his “commitment” to the Church to the motivation she received from the late Catholic Nun.

“I was in Mabanga (St. Augustine’s Major Seminary) for three years then left. Were it not for the motivation from Sister and others, maybe I wouldn’t be active in the Church. I attribute my commitment to the formation I had,” he told ACI Africa on June 11.

The teacher at Lukenya Boys High School went on to say that Sr. Mary “was fully dedicated to the Church. She would not miss any Mass in the Seminary. It is like she had time for the Church and nothing else.”

“I can only compare her to the prophetess Anna in the Bible. I knew her when she was old and from that moment, I never saw her having other businesses besides Church activities,” said Mr. Kassima.

The death of Sr. Mary, he said, “is a big for the Church but heaven has gained a lot. I pray that God will receive her.”

 Sr. Mary’s body is to be received at the Immaculate Conception Chapel, Houston, Texas on Tuesday, June 14. “Evening Praise and a celebration of her life” has been scheduled at the Chapel.

She is to be laid to rest at the Villa de Matel Cemetery on Wednesday, June 15 after Holy Mass at the Immaculate Conception Chapel.

Sunday last were laid to rest the mortal remains of Mr. Jeremiah Dillon, of Meen, Listowel, after a lingering illness, lasting over two years.The deceased was one of the most extensive farmer in North Kerry, and some twenty years ago, a s a result of the active and manly part which he took in the Land War waged against the late Mr. George Sandes, his agent, he, like many others, fell under the

ban of that tyrannical agent and was evicted for a single gale’s rent, his rent being at the time £ 1 8 0 a year, whilst his valuation w a s £ 1 1 1 .

A man named Michael Stack of Foildarrlg, Duagh, was on Sunday arrested and brought Into Listowel on a charge of furiously assaulting a man named Edward Sheehy, same locality, by striking him with a stone on the head, causing serious injury. The defendant was remanded on bail when the injured man’s life was pronounced out of danger. The affair arose out of a dispute over the elections.

Mr. Denis Shanahan, brother of the esteemed Castleisland man, Richard E Shanahan, died a short time since in Australia. He was very popular In the early Land League days in Castleisland. He took a prominent part in helping the distressed in the famine of 1879. He was well known to Michael Davitt and William O’Brien and others, and brought down Joe’Biggar

He got a send-off when leaving his native town foe Australia.

The death of Mrs. Shanahan, wife of Mr Edward Shanahan, Clandouglas, and sister of the Bishop of Kerry, came with feelings of shock to all who knew her. Mrs. Shanahan had been ailing for some time, still no one for a moment imagined that death would come so soon. In the particular district in which she lived her demise will invoke the warmest feelings of regret

She was a special friend of the poor, and in all their difficulties she was ever at their side. To her children in America her death will come as a very painful calamity. She has two sons on the American Mission—Rev. Wm Shanahan, P.P., Churchden, Iowa.U. S. A., and Rev. John Shanahan

This Maurice Stack, legend tells us, bore an unenviable name among the Irish, and, perhaps, Lady Kerry thought his end a fitting one for such a renegade.

From our correspondent

A convention of delegates of the different  branches of the Land League in North Kerry, was held in Listowel on Friday in the Committee Rooms of the Listowel Land League for the purpose of discussing public mutters of mutual interest.

Amongst these present were—The Rev A. Moynihan, Adm., Listowel ; Rev J. Bourke, P.P, Newtownsandes ; Rev M. O’Connor, P.P, Ballybunion ; Rev M. Godley. C.C, Ballybunion ; Rev B. Scanlon, C.C, Duagh ; Rev F. Cremen, C.C, Lixnaw ; Rev J. Casey, C.C, Listowel; Rev. J. Enright, C.C. Listowel ; Messrs J. Horgan, J. Stack, P. L.G ; J. O’Sullivan, J. W. Keane, K. Browne, W.

KNOCKANURE (COUNTY KERRY).

A very representative meeting of this branch was held on Sunday last—Mr. Robert Hunt, president, occupied the chair. Others present—Messrs. T. J. O’Connor, treasurer ; J. T. O’Sullivan, P. R. Stack, honorary secretaries; W. E. Stack, J. Leahy, Wm. Murphy, W. Moore, G. Stack, J. T. Leahy, J. O’Connor, P. Collins, T. Kelly, T. Ahem, J. Fitzgerald, J. Goulding, J. Finucane. The chairman said—So long as such virtuous exterminators as T. W. Sandes, of Sallowglin, and Mickey Fitzgerald, of Athea, were at liberty to invade the parish with their crowbar brigade and level the houses of their unfortunate victims—so long as the unholy head of the grabber of Cornelius O’Connor’s evicted farm appeared in their midst, so long there remained a necessity for that organisation which has brought many a stubborn tyrant to his knees, and which will in the not distant future bring about the abolition of that accursed system which has deprived many an Irishman of his home. When the time came when there would be no necessity for a National League, he was sure that it would be one of the pleasantest reminiscences of their lives that their branch could be numbered amongst the list of Kerry branches which had fought the tyrannies of Balfourism in its last ditch, and which struggled to the last for the freedom and regeneration of their country. A circular was read about the William Moore Stack Testimonial. The chairman, in putting it before the meeting, said it was unnecessary for him to recommend the subject of the circular to his fellow-parishioners. He was sure that Kerrymen in general were well acquainted with the life and motives of Mr. Moore Stack. In days gone by, when it was not fashionable to be a patriot, Mr. Moore Stack suffered imprisonment, and sacrificed the emoluments of a high position in the cause of his country. He would say that no Irishman’s heart ever pulsated with deeper or truer love for its motherland than did the heart of William Moore Stack. Now that he has been incapacitated from filling any office through ill-health, and known, as it must be, by his fellow-countrymen, that had he adopted the policy of venal Irishmen, and proved a traitor to the cause of his country, he could by this time have amassed that store which his stern and uncompromising patriotism has denied him. It was unanimously agreed that collectors be appointed for the various town lands in the parish to collect subscriptions in aid of the testimonial.

CDC warns of COVID-19 “rebound” after taking Paxlovid, but says drug still beneficial

evening-news

By Jon LaPook

Updated on: May 31, 2022 / 7:45 AM / CBS News

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise, Paxlovid is being prescribed to try to keep high-risk patients out of the hospital. But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning of potential “COVID-19 rebound” after a five-day course of the treatment.

“If you take Paxlovid, you might get symptoms again,” CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky told CBS News. “We haven’t yet seen anybody who has returned with symptoms needing to go to the hospital. So, generally, a milder course.”

After a patient recovers, rebound has been reported to occur two to eight days later. Still, the CDC says the benefits of taking Paxlovid far outweigh the risks. Among unvaccinated people at high risk for severe disease, it reduced the risk of hospitalization and death by nearly 90%, according to the CDC.

“Widespread reliance on punitive approaches to enforcing public health” harms marginalized groups, says Amnesty International. A new report from the human rights group Amnesty International suggests quarantine rules and other COVID-19 restrictions were especially damaging for groups already more likely to face discrimination, police harassment, and unjust criminalization. Amnesty International calls on governments to reject using criminal sanctions to implement public health goals and “refrain from implementing repressive policies” in the name of protecting pubic health.

Escalating anti-Christian attacks

Nina Shea, a human rights lawyer and expert in religious freedom at the Hudson Institute, a think tank and research center in Washington, D.C., told CNA Sunday that “war-like” attacks against Catholics and other Christians are escalating in Nigeria. Yet most of this violence, until now, has centered in northern Nigeria, while the southwestern part of the country where Sunday’s attack took place has remained relatively peaceful.

“This massacre in a church while filled with Sunday worshippers is an atrocity that we’ve repeatedly seen in northern Nigeria over the years. Those were the work of Islamist extremists,” Shea said.

“While the facts are still emerging about  today’s massacre, it is clear that large scale, war-like attacks on Catholics and other Christians are spreading in a system of impunity,” she continued. “The Buhari government has allowed this continue unabated and fails to protect Nigeria’s churches. This governmental passivity is being seen  as a green light for extremists to target Christians.”

Whitsunday

5th June 2022

Dear Friends of Sacred Heart Church,

Today is the feast of Whitsunday, or Pentecost, when the Holy Ghost descended upon the Mother of God and the Apostles in the form of tongues of fire. The vestments the priest wears at Mass today are red to remind of us that the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity come in the form of fire, which recalls the flame of divine charity that He places in our hearts. The Church grants a plenary indulgence today for those who recite the hymn Veni Creator. Also, today and for the whole Octave of Pentecost the Church sings the beautiful sequence Veni Sancte Spiritus just after the double Alleluia at Holy Mass. To listen to the sermon delivered by Canon Lebocq, please just click here.

I am very grateful for all those who helped and took time to organise the procession in honour of Our Lady last Tuesday.  Monsignor Schmitz was very pleased with his visit to Ireland, despite its brevity. If you did not have the chance to listen to the sermon Monsignor delivered on the Queenship of Mary, or if you would like to hear it again, you will find it on this link.

This week the Institute apostolate in Saint Louis in the US is hosting several priests of the Institute for a few days of silent retreat. Each priest participates in an annual retreat of this sort, which includes spiritual conferences and bountiful time for prayer. Priests need retreats like this to rest their souls, for a spiritual break, so that he can restore his soul to its full spiritual energy by spending time exclusively with Our Lord.

This coming Wednesday we welcome Canon Duarte Carvalho, a newly ordained priest for the Institute, who will be spending a few days among us, and who will be celebrating a First Mass this coming Sunday 12th June. After Mass Canon will be offering his blessing as a newly ordained priest for each member of the faithful.

From yesterday, the Vigil of Pentecost, until tomorrow, Pentecost Monday, thousands of pilgrims from all over the world make their way from Paris to Chartres in France. Canon de Martin is leading the Irish group of pilgrims. After the pilgrimage, Canon will stay for a few days on the continent for a late Easter break.

Even now, the Sacred Heart Novena is being prepared. It begins the 16th of June and finishes on the feast itself, which is the 24th this year. The Novena begins on the feast of Corpus Christ, for which there will be a procession in honour of the Blessed Sacrament after the 6pm Mass. Please be present on this very solemn feast day!  This is also a wonderful occasion to invite friends, family, and acquaintances to assist at Mass to adore Jesus in the Sacrament of His Love. Additional priests of the Institute will be present, as well as some of the Sister Adorers.

On 19th June, during the Novena to the Sacred Heart, the collection will be to benefit the Sister Adorers. Please be generous with the Sisters who have the wonderful apostolate of prayer for priests and who hope to grow their presence in Ireland.

During his recent visit, Monsignor Wach, Prior General of the Institute, met with Abbé Wells. During this meeting Monsignor called him to the diaconate.

For a seminarian, there is no right to receive orders; the Superior has “to call” them to Orders. After deliberating with his spiritual director, Abbé Wells intends to accept this call. Once ordained, he will receive new sacred charges: that of singing the Gospel at a Solemn Mass, of preaching, and of distributing Holy Communion. We offer our congratulations to Abbé and assure him of our fervent prayers, especially on the day of his Ordination, 29th June.

Wishing you a blessed Week,

Yours in Christ,

Canon Lebocq

5th June 2022, Feast of Pentecost.

Dear Parishioner,

You may wonder if I throw past issues of Intercom and

Reality Magazine in the ‘litter bin’, once the particular month has finished!

For some time, I had been keeping each copy for a three-year period and, if

I had continued to do that, I would have the issues of 2019 – 2021, as well

as those of the present year. Instead, I have those from 2015 until now.

From January 2015, the back cover of Intercom has contained a full-page

advertisement by ‘The Abbey Stained Glass Studios’, with a photograph

(almost always) of a church where the company is carrying out some work.

In the June issue, the church featured is ‘Kenure Church of Ireland’, Rush,

Co. Dublin. Underneath the photograph of a man, kneeling in scaffolding,

working on a window, is written, ‘Abbey Stained Glasss Studios have been

commissioned to carry out conservation and restoration on the church

stained-glass windows for church warden, Mr. Greer Harte.’ The contacts

given for those, who might wish to invite the company to undertake a

particular job, are Ken Ryan and William Malone.

When you open Dear Parishioner, you will find that the author of the main

article is Ken Ryan. I think you will enjoy the first part of his article,

‘Working with the Church in Africa’ and you will look forward to reading

the second half next weekend. By the time, Ken Ryan got married to Eileen

McSweeney, from Inchigeela in West Cork, at the age of 26 in 1971, he had

already studied ‘Quantity Surveying’, worked in Dublin for a short period

and had headed off to take up an eighteen-month contract in Malawi,

West Africa, when he was 22. I am sure there were many young Irish men

and women, who might have found themselves in the same situation as

Ken Ryan, hoping to get a work in a family business, who would have been

told, like him, that there was not a great future in the family business and

that they should go and get a ‘proper job.’ Some of those, who launched

out into the deep, in the latter half of the 20th century, have probably had

very successful careers, started their own businesses and, at this time, may

have handed on the ‘baton’ to one or more of their children. Most of us

admire people, who dare to be different, following a path in life that

seemed risky, but who have success beyond their wildest dreams. (Fr.

Denis O’Mahony)

—————————

Working with the Church in Africa Part 1

In a series of autobiographical articles prepared for Intercom, Ken Ryan

describes his early life in Africa and his association with the vibrant Catholic

missionary movement of that time. In this first article Ken recalls his early

working and married life with his first wife Eileen and their initial encounter

with the apartheid movement.

Over fifty years ago, my father, Frank Ryan, told me that there was no

place for me in the family business, Abbey-Stained-Glass Studios, as the

Church Building Programme was slowing down and therefore there would

be a reduced demand for new Church windows in the future. I was

instructed to get a ’proper job’ and so I spent three years studying Quantity

Surveying in the College of Technology, Bolton Street, Dublin. After that I

was delighted to be taken on as a ‘junior’ by Seamus Monahan’s Practice in

Dublin and my first task was to measure concrete quantities in the Church

of the Holy Redeemer, Dundalk. At that time, my father, Frank, was on one

of his many three-month overseas trips selling stained glass windows

mainly to Irish clergy abroad and, whilst in Zambia, he met my Dublin

employer’s brother Frank Monahan, a quantity surveyor and director of

John Sisk, Africa. I applied to Frank Monahan for a job and was offered an

eighteen-month contract in Malawi (formerly Nyasaland) and emigrated

there just as I turned twenty-two. The Life President was Kamazu Banda

and his instructions were followed to the letter. As a single penniless

young man, I gained a huge amount of construction experience in Malawi

and would also have to visit and report to Sisk’s head office in Rhodesia

from time to time. No internet then, and so it would take a month to

have a letter responded to from Ireland, and, to make an overseas

telephone call, it would have to have been booked many weeks in advance,

if at all possible, and of course it was very costly. I had been going out with

Eileen McSweeney from Inchigeela, West Cork before I left, and we

corresponded from 6,000 miles apart and, on my return to Ireland, Eileen

welcomed me home at twenty three years of age.

I worked for a professional Quantity Surveyor in Dublin for a few years, and

Eileen and I became engaged, and we were married in August 1971 – both

aged twenty six – in Eileen’s Parish in a beautiful little Church on the island

in Gougane Barra, by the newly ordained Vincentian Fr. Pat Collins, my

classmate from St. Paul’s College, Raheny. The next day, with little luggage

and even less money, we started on life’s uncertain journey together

tinged

with sadness to be leaving Ireland and our families behind. There was

excitement for the future as we left Cork on the Fishguard ferry and

emigrated to Rhodesia boarding the Windsor Castle in Southampton to sail

to Cape Town. Between the lavish meals the passengers queued for,

coffee and cakes mid-morning, and high afternoon tea complete with

delicious pastries, Eileen and I most definitely added a stone in weight on

this fabulous floating feast, on the ten-day voyage as we crossed the

equator towards South Africa. New immigrants were allowed to bring a

new car, duty free, into Rhodesia and so we drove our new VW estate car

(yet to be paid for) the 2,000 miles from Cape Town to Salisbury. On the

way, Eileen wanted to send some postcards home and we stopped in a

small South African town where she joined the queue in the Post Office to

buy stamps. After a lengthy delay Eileen reached the counter and the

white lady attending refused to serve her as she was in a black queue and

she should have been in the white queue. This was our first encounter

with apartheid which we found difficult to understand.

On arrival in Salisbury (now Harare), I got a job as a quantity surveyor with

a Portuguese company, A. M. da Silva & Co. Ltd. and Eileen was working as

an accountant with Lever Brothers. Just at the time my father, Frank, was

air freighting George Campbell RHA’s Resurrection altar, stained glass

window and fourteen etched marble Stations of the Cross to Bishop Donal

Lamont for his newly built Umtali Cathedral. On one of my father Frank’s,

Christmas trips to Rhodesia/Zimbabwe, Bishop Lamont and his secretary Fr.

John Murphy visited Frank, Eileen and me, for a jovial dinner with

reminiscences, laughter and song in our new African home. Three years

later Harry and Bernard Cullinane from Knock invited me to join them as a

partner in a construction company and soon afterwards Cullinane Brothers

& Ryan Ltd was formed and we carried out major building and civil

engineering projects with well over 150 African employees throughout

Rhodesia/Zimbabwe and Eileen became our accountant to the company.

Eileen in addition had a ‘part-time’ job together with her business partner,

our much-respected Zimbabwean house lady Celia Maswodza, preparing

lunches at monthly meetings of the Catholic Bishop’s Conference and also

for The Catholic Justice and Peace Commission who were trying with much

difficulty to expedite human rights changes in Rhodesia. Eileen and Celia

would split ‘the profits’ which did not take long to count. (to be continued

next week) (Ken Ryan Intercom June 2022)

Seeing your Life through the Lens of the Gospel – John Byrne OSA

1. ‘If you love me you will keep my commandments’, and specifically

the commandment to love one another (cf. 13.34).

How have you experienced the link between love of God

and love of those around you?

2. To his followers Jesus promises ‘we will come and make our

home with them’. Our God is not a distant God but one who lives

in us. What has helped you to be aware of the closeness of God

to you?

3. Jesus is preparing his disciples for his imminent departure and for

a future in which he would be with them in a different way. He

would not ‘leave them orphans’ but send an ‘Advocate’ to ‘be

with (them) for ever’. How have you experienced the presence of

God with you in your life?

4. Jesus seeks to reassure his followers in the face of his imminent

death. Although he will be leaving them, he promises them the

gift of the Spirit. How have you been aware of the gift of the

Spirit of God in your life? (Intercom, June 2022)

Points to Ponder (Intercom, June 2022)

The four marks of our Christian belonging are our personal journey, our

community belonging, our practical discipleship and our adult integration

of faith and life. None of us ‘inhabits’ all four dimensions fully, all of the

time, and yet all four dimensions should in principle be there. The good

news of Pentecost is that the Spirit, poured into our hearts, enables all four

aspects of our faith to live: 1. the Spirit helps us in our prayer: 2. the body

of Christ is animated by the gifts of the Spirit; 3. our service of others gets

its energy from the Spirit and 4. the Spirit ‘reminds us’ off all that Jesus

taught. Today, we celebrate discipleship in the community of faith.

Jesus comes into a room full of fear. Sometimes it is fear itself that makes

us close the door on others and on God. Occasionally a person comes

along with the gift of breaking through our closed doors, a person who

comes to be with us in our fears. Do you have memories of people getting

through to you and being with you despite your closed doors? Who

brought you peace in a time of anxiety?

Prayer: We open our hearts and lives to you, Holy Spirit, breathe a breath

of new life into all! You live and reign in union with the Father and Son,

forever and ever. Amen

Hers adds to the findings of prior studies that also found that limiting saturated fat is not a beneficial guideline. While much similar research has used self-reported data on how much people eat—a notoriously unreliable metric, especially for years-long studies—the current study is noteworthy for actually measuring the dairy-fat levels in the participants’ blood.

A drawback to this method, though, is that the source of the fats is unclear, so no distinction can be made between cheese, milk, yogurt, butter, etc. The people with low levels of dairy fats in their blood weren’t necessarily dairy free, but they may have been consuming low-fat dairy. All that can be said is that there was no association between dairy fats generally and mortality.

The news alerts came down to the sixth article, which was the set of “clinical guidelines.” In it, the researchers concluded that because of the “low quality evidence,” adults should continue eating meat as they do. To arrive at this conclusion, the authors used a technique known as GRADE, which subjectively evaluates different types of evidence. For example, a drug would not simply be recommended because it is effective; the amount of effect would be considered alongside things such as reliability, side effects, and other costs. Based on its analysis, the group decided that the evidence of meat’s harms to health was not strong enough to recommend that people stop eating meat altogether. And because it deemed this evidence weak, it chose to recommend that people do not attempt to change their habits.

Gov. Hochul Signs New Tougher Gun Laws

A Japanese lady friend of mine in San Diego says that they completely eliminated sugar from the diets of cancer patients in Japan over 20 years ago! Japanese people have the longest lifespans of any nation on Earth. Japan has over 80,000 Centenarians, people who are 100 or more years old. Japan has about 1/3 the population of the U.S. We should have over 240,000 Centenarians here in the USA if we had the same ratio of citizens over the age of 100. Instead we have just 97,000.

Walk down the breakfast food aisle in a supermarket in America and notice what you see: Cap-N-Crunch, Froot Loops, Lucky Charms, Sugar Frosted Flakes, Pop Tarts, Donuts etc. all LOADED with sugar! Compare to Japanese kids who are eating Miso Soup with sea vegetables loaded with minerals, vegetables, and fish with essential fatty acids which are great for brain development. Miso is also loaded with healthy probiotics. Is it any wonder we have so many children with cancer. And what do you think they feed them at Ronald McDonald House? The average American ate 8 pounds of sugar per year 100 years ago. Today Americans eat over 165 pounds of sugar annually. The American Cancer Society says sugar is fine to eat and it’s okay to drink two alcoholic drinks per day! It’s no wonder that cancer has gone from being the #3 cause of death when Nixon declared the war on cancer in 1972 to the #2 leading cause of death today. Duh…

Prayers

The Path to Fulfillment

In the Christian life, we can be tempted to let others become lax in following God’s laws. However, we must remember that God’s lawgiving is an expression of his love, his desire for our fulfillment. So, to love others well, we must call them to follow Christ with all their strength!

The Mission of the Disciple

Though we are in Ordinary Time, there is nothing ordinary about following Christ. As the Gospel says, we must be light and salt. As light, we illuminate the world with truth. As salt, we preserve ourselves and others from  the corruption of sin. Though these are lofty challenges, let’s remain hopeful. God raises up heroes in every generation, and that hero can be you.

The Acts of the Apostles

The Acts of the Apostles reminds the Church of her calling and provides the blueprint for success. Specifically, this New Testament book shows us that the Resurrection gives us power and hope. No longer must we fear the world, for our Savior has overcome it.

——————————————-

Fulfillment, Strength, & Comfort

Because of Christ’s priestly intercession, the Holy Spirit came to sustain and animate the Church. Now, the Paraclete dwells in the baptized, making them the new Temple of God. With this presence of God within us, we find strength and comfort; we are empowered to live the Gospel. In honor of this solemnity, let’s ask for renewed docility to the Spirit’s promptings!

June 5th: The Solemnity of Pentecost

Come, Holy Spirit! Today we celebrate the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles. Just as the Holy Spirit filled the apostles, He continues to strengthen and sustain the Church today.

We invite you to dive deeper into the beauty and power of the Solemnity of Pentecost by watching the resources below.

————————————–

The Model

Just before his death, Christ gave us a magnificent gift: his own mother. Now, Mary acts as the Mother of the Church, helping the baptized come closer to her son. Moreover, Mary invites the Church to imitate her obedience and unending love, for she is the perfect disciple.

All five naked-eye planets will line up this June. Not only that, they’ll also be in their proper order from the Sun…..

The delightful view of all five naked-eye planets will greet early risers throughout the month of June. While seeing two or three planets close together (in what’s known as a conjunction) is a rather common occurrence, seeing five is somewhat more rare. And what’s even more remarkable about this month’s lineup is that the planets are arranged in their natural order from the Sun..

Speaking at his general audience on June 1, the pope said: “Today we begin the month dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, source of love and peace.”

“Open yourselves to this love and take it ‘to the ends of the earth,’ witnessing to the goodness and mercy that flow from the Heart of Jesus.”

THE death has occurred of businessman Pat O’Carroll, the founder and director of Millennium Crane Hire. Pat, who died in London on April 18 at the age of 78, was from Knockanure in North Kerry.Sport was a big feature of Pat O’Carroll’s early life — he was an All Ireland champion in weight-throwing as well as being a Kerry footballer. It was while growing up in Kerry, and playing for the North Kerry Minors, that Pat met Phil Donovan.

They later went on to build a hugely successful UK business as well as striking up a friendship that lasted a lifetime.

His name is Juan Vicente Pérez Mora, he’s Venezuelan, passionate about his faith, prays the rosary twice a day, and is in the Guinness World Records as the oldest man in the world.

Mora was born on May 27, 1909 and this year he turned 113 years old.

In an article published on May 17 on the Guinness World Records website, Mora said his secret to living a long life is to “work hard, rest on holidays, go to bed early, drink a glass of aguardiente (a strong liquor made from sugarcane) every day, love God, and always carry him in your heart.”

He says his family and friends are his greatest life companions and that the greatest thing he has learned in life is “the love of God, the love of family, and that we must get up early to work.”

TURF cutting and the war in Ukraine, our government are not sincere in their sympathy with the people suffering from an unnecessary war. If they were really giving help, they would keep a constant campaign on the media, advising and enabling the Irish and their EU and world population to refrain from any activity that would use gas or oil, which fuels the war. All advertisements could carry a warning of their carbon footprint.

Friends of the Irish Environment (FIE) has recently sent a written communication to Bord na Móna calling on the organisation to stop the removal of its 950,000t peat stockpiles.

USA: The Biden administration  established a program that allows Americans to sponsor Ukrainian refugees and have them temporarily stay in the United States under a system known as humanitarian parole.

The program, called Uniting for Ukraine, is a piece of a larger initiative to temporarily resettle as many as 100,000 Ukrainian refugees, but migrants themselves cannot directly apply. Instead, a sponsor in the United States must apply on their behalf, and then migrants may complete the process after their sponsor is approved.

Notes and Sources 11 Permission was given for the establishment of Maynooth College “in an effort to prevent Catholic priests from seeking education in Europe, where they might be influenced by the ideas of the French Revolution.” A History of Ireland, Vol. II, Conquest and Colonisation, Col- Ims/MacCurt. 12 The Irish by Sean O’Faolam (a Pelican Original) page 107 13 “It does not follow that, because the bishops were unusually active in this period, they were therefore unusually effective in influencing government policy. On the contrary, they took some hard knocks in these years. Bishop Browne’s vocational organisation report was shelved. Archbishop McQuaid’s attempt to mediate in the school strike of 1946 was rebuffed. The hierarchy as a whole saw its advice on the licensing laws rejected, and was far from totally successful in its attempts to secure modifications in the health services.” J.H.Whyte, Church and State in Modern Ireland 1923-1970, page 374. 14 “In the 1972 referendum which abolished the constitutional ‘special position’ of the Catholic Church by a national vote of 84%, after Cardinal Conway had said in 1969 that ‘he would not shed a tear’, the most resounding Church intervention was in Cork, where the diocesan magazine said ‘Don’t vote Yes’, and where the size of the ‘No* vote led the country at 28%.” Irish Times, Dec. 1972, quoted in article in the Furrow, 1973, page 570. 15 Orange and Green.

Kerry I.R.A. Volunteer Dies In Chicago Maurice Walsh, a native of Gaelbridge, Moyvane, Co. Kerry, died on May 14, 1973 at his home in Chicago, Illinois. Maurice was a member of the Derry Co. Listowel Battalion. He took the side of the Republican Movement and opposed the Treaty in 1921. All through his life Maurice remained a true Irishman and supported the fight for a 32 County Free Ireland. It is with sadness that his friends regret his departure from this life. All of us are better Irishmen for having the opportunity to be associated with him. We extend our deepest sympathy to his family in the U.S. and in his native Kerry. Jack Lyons

ENERGY: Four simple changes, such as turning down the thermostat, air-drying laundry, placing a lid on saucepans during cooking and using the dishwasher in eco mode, could save £400 a year.

Sky News analysis of data from consultancy Cambridge Energy shows that those changes would also lead to a drop in carbon emissions by a fifth for heating per household.

News reports say that air source heat pump could reduce your energy bill by £375 per year, it could, in theory, take up to 48 years to pay for itself.

WAR: With the experience of World War I fresh in his mind, Randolph Bourne famously warned that “war is the health of the state.” Under stress, he noted, people rally behind the government and lash out at dissenters. Since then, we’ve learned that freedom lost in times of crisis is rarely fully regained after life settles down. War isn’t always avoidable; Ukrainians had no choice but to fight or capitulate when Russian forces invaded. But, no matter whether Russia or Ukraine ultimately prevail, the logic of conflict inevitably makes a victim of individual liberty.

——————————

The two leaders hit it off, and not just because of their legendary macho bravado. Mr. Putin, a former K.G.B. agent who had been based in Dresden, spoke fluent German and grew up poor, like Mr. Schröder, whose mother was a cleaner who brought up five children on her own.

==========================

The World Bank says the war in Ukraine is set to cause the “largest commodity shock” since the 1970s – meaning huge price rises for goods ranging from natural gas to wheat and cotton.

The increases will affect the poorest most, but households and business of all sizes will feel the effects.

Wheat is predicted to go up in price by almost 43% and reach new highs, chicken could go up nearly 42%, soybeans 20% and oil 30%.

CARDINAL Timothy Dolan is poised to leave Rome and head east to spend time with refugees from the war in Ukraine.

Israel and the world is pausing to remember the 6-million Jews murdered during WWII.

=========================

WAR: During the war, airmen in the 100th Bomb Group could finish their combat service and return home after flying 25 missions. Yet with a 1 in 10 chance of becoming a casualty, few were able to reach this milestone. Lucky was one of the, well, lucky few who did, and Kevin traces how he got there, from trying to join the Royal Canadian Air Force as a teenager, to learning to fly the B-17 on the job, to his harrowing daylight bombing missions over Germany, to the life he made for himself after the war. Along the way, Kevin describes the brutal conditions inside a B-17 and the bomber’s role in winning the war.

There are a few caveats here, or aspects of a survival garden you really need to think about before you decide that just because your backyard is precisely 200 square feet you’ll be able to pull this off. First of all, the list above isn’t comprehensive and only included a few examples.

AMAZING Life of Pauline Jaricot

Pauline Jaricot, who was declared venerable in 1963, was born in Lyon a decade after the French Revolution, on July 22, 1799. She was the youngest of seven children of Antoine and Jeanne Jaricot.

Antoine was the owner of a silk factory, so Pauline was expected to live her life in the bourgeoisie. So at 15 she was made her debut in Lyon’s social life of the city. A sermon on vanity made her question that scene.

FILM: Father Stu is the story of an apparently ordinary man who, through his faith, was able to touch a multitude of people in danger of losing their way. At a moment in the world when, he believes, people are starving for something to reignite their faith, Wahlberg hopes the movie will resonate not only in the Catholic community, but for every denomination and even for nonreligious people.

HIDDEN long-term risks of surgery: ‘It gives people’s brains a hard time’——————

Cibelli listened as the woman described how her father, a former physics professor, had shown signs of significant cognitive decline after the initial operation. Once a keen chess player, he was now unable to play the game and struggled to even do basic crosswords.

For Cibelli, it was the first time he had encountered what is now termed postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) – cognitive problems associated with surgery that persist well after the effects of anaesthetics have worn off. “I published some articles on the subject,” he says. “And people began finding my email address, saying their father or mother had changed a lot after a surgery in the past. So I began to realise that this wasn’t such an isolated case.”

TURF cutting and the war in Ukraine, our government are not sincere in their sympathy with the people suffering from an unnecessary war. If they were really giving help, they would keep a constant campaign on the media, advising and enabling the Irish and their EU and world population to refrain from any activity that would use gas or oil, which fuels the war. All advertisements could carry a warning of their carbon footprint.

Friends of the Irish Environment (FIE) has recently sent a written communication to Bord na Móna calling on the organisation to stop the removal of its 950,000t peat stockpiles.

Instead, a sponsor in the United States must apply on their behalf, and then migrants may complete the process after their sponsor is approved.

On the contrary, they took some hard knocks in these years. Bishop Browne’s vocational organisation report was shelved. Archbishop McQuaid’s attempt to mediate in the school strike of 1946 was rebuffed. The hierarchy as a whole saw its advice on the licensing laws rejected, and was far from totally successful in its attempts to secure modifications in the health services.” J.H.Whyte, Church and State in Modern Ireland 1923-1970, page 374. 14 “In the 1972 referendum which abolished the constitutional ‘special position’ of the Catholic Church by a national vote of 84%, after Cardinal Conway had said in 1969 that ‘he would not shed a tear’, the most resounding Church intervention was in Cork, where the diocesan magazine said ‘Don’t vote Yes’, and where the size of the ‘No* vote led the country at 28%.” Irish Times, Dec. 1972, quoted in article in the Furrow, 1973, page 570. 15 Orange and Green.

Kerry I.R.A. Volunteer Dies In Chicago Maurice Walsh, a native of Gaelbridge, Moyvane, Co. Kerry, died on May 14, 1973 at his home in Chicago, Illinois. Maurice was a member of the Derry Co. Listowel Battalion. He took the side of the Republican Movement and opposed the Treaty in 1921. All through his life Maurice remained a true Irishman and supported the fight for a 32 County Free Ireland. It is with sadness that his friends regret his departure from this life. All of us are better Irishmen for having the opportunity to be associated with him. We extend our deepest sympathy to his family in the U.S. and in his native Kerry. Jack Lyons

ENERGY: Four simple changes, such as turning down the thermostat, air-drying laundry, placing a lid on saucepans during cooking and using the dishwasher in eco mode, could save £400 a year.

Sky News analysis of data from consultancy Cambridge Energy shows that those changes would also lead to a drop in carbon emissions by a fifth for heating per household.

WAR: With the experience of World War I fresh in his mind, Randolph Bourne famously warned that “war is the health of the state.” Under stress, he noted, people rally behind the government and lash out at dissenters. Since then, we’ve learned that freedom lost in times of crisis is rarely fully regained after life settles down. War isn’t always avoidable; Ukrainians had no choice but to fight or capitulate when Russian forces invaded. But, no matter whether Russia or Ukraine ultimately prevail, the logic of conflict inevitably makes a victim of individual liberty.

——————————

The two leaders hit it off, and not just because of their legendary macho bravado. Mr. Putin, a former K.G.B. agent who had been based in Dresden, spoke fluent German and grew up poor, like Mr. Schröder, whose mother was a cleaner who brought up five children on her own.

==========================

The World Bank says the war in Ukraine is set to cause the “largest commodity shock” since the 1970s – meaning huge price rises for goods ranging from natural gas to wheat and cotton.

The increases will affect the poorest most, but households and business of all sizes will feel the effects.

Wheat is predicted to go up in price by almost 43% and reach new highs, chicken could go up nearly 42%, soybeans 20% and oil 30%.

CARDINAL Timothy Dolan is poised to leave Rome and head east to spend time with refugees from the war in Ukraine.

Israel and the world is pausing to remember the 6-million Jews murdered during WWII.

WAR: During the war, airmen in the 100th Bomb Group could finish their combat service and return home after flying 25 missions. Yet with a 1 in 10 chance of becoming a casualty, few were able to reach this milestone. Lucky was one of the, well, lucky few who did, and Kevin traces how he got there, from trying to join the Royal Canadian Air Force as a teenager, to learning to fly the B-17 on the job, to his harrowing daylight bombing missions over Germany, to the life he made for himself after the war. Along the way, Kevin describes the brutal conditions inside a B-17 and the bomber’s role in winning the war.

AMAZING Life of Pauline Jaricot

Pauline Jaricot, who was declared venerable in 1963, was born in Lyon a decade after the French Revolution, on July 22, 1799. She was the youngest of seven children of Antoine and Jeanne Jaricot.

Antoine was the owner of a silk factory, so Pauline was expected to live her life in the bourgeoisie. So at 15 she was made her debut in Lyon’s social life of the city. A sermon on vanity made her question that scene.

HIDDEN long-term risks of surgery: ‘It gives people’s brains a hard time’——————

Cibelli listened as the woman described how her father, a former physics professor, had shown signs of significant cognitive decline after the initial operation. Once a keen chess player, he was now unable to play the game and struggled to even do basic crosswords.

For Cibelli, it was the first time he had encountered what is now termed postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) – cognitive problems associated with surgery that persist well after the effects of anaesthetics have worn off. “I published some articles on the subject,” he says. “And people began finding my email address, saying their father or mother had changed a lot after a surgery in the past. So I began to realise that this wasn’t such an isolated case.”

Knockanure Notes for June 2021

2021 June 2 Knockanure

KNOCKANURE

SACRED HEART NOVENA; From the 3rd to 11th of June we will celebrate a Novena to the Sacred Heart.  Speakers from around the Country and from the Parish will be relayed on a big screen as they share with us each evening, images/ideas/challenges.  It promises to be different and enriching. 

Many years ago widow Murphy visited me on day three of the Sacred Heart Novena in the Western Road, Cork.  She told me she had two sons, one a gardener and the other a potter.  The gardener had asked her to pray for rain to water his plants while the potter had asked her to pray for sunshine to dry his pots.  “What should I do, Fr. Kevin?” she pleaded.  “You will do best to leave it in the hands of the Sacred Heart”, I replied. Our Novena will be great as we leave all things in the hands of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.   Please come and allow the touch of Jesus to bless, enrich and guide you to new beginnings.

DEATH: Sister Mary (Robert) Morgan, CSJ, 92, died Wednesday, May 19, 2021, in the 73rd year of her religious life as a Sister of St. Joseph. ———————————

While reflecting on 50 years of religious service, Sister Mary said, “What stands in my mind more than anything is the wonder of God’s love and his care and direction and sustaining love . . . it blows my mind how God has been with me so faithfully and lovingly through the ups and downs that come into every life.”

Sister Mary was predeceased by four brothers, Robert, Dick, Daniel and Tom. She is survived by a sister, Rose Ann Campbell of Chalk Hill, PA, numerous nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews, Associates, and the Sisters of St. Joseph. The Sisters of St. Joseph are grateful to the Supportive Living staff at the Motherhouse and the Concordia at Villa St. Joseph staff for their care of Sister Mary. A Memorial Mass will be scheduled at a later date.

THIS IS TRINITY SUNDAY weekend we celebrate the greatest mystery of our faith.  We would not know anything about it if God had not revealed it to us.  The mystery is this:  that God is Father, Son and Spirit.  It is not so much something to talk about (for words are totally inadequate), as something to celebrate pray and live.  Lord Jesus, You reveal to us the mystery of the Father and His great personal love for each of us.  You reveal to us the mystery of Your own Divine Sonship and You share your Divine inheritance with each and everyone of us.  You reveal to us the beautiful mystery of the Holy Spirit who binds us together as sisters and brothers.  Pray joyfully, Glory be to the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. (Taken From Moyvane Newsletter)

Reflection from Claire;

Gerard Manley Hopkins’ Windhover which, as you say, bears much study: 

To Christ our Lord (writes GMH)

I caught this morning morning’s minion, king-

    dom of daylight’s dauphin, dapple-dawn-drawn Falcon, in his riding

    Of the rolling level underneath him steady air, and striding

High there, how he rung upon the rein of a wimpling wing

In his ecstasy! then off, off forth on swing,

    As a skate’s heel sweeps smooth on a bow-bend: the hurl and gliding

    Rebuffed the big wind. My heart in hiding

Stirred for a bird, – the achieve of, the mastery of the thing!

Brute beauty and valour and act, oh, air, pride, plume, here

    Buckle! AND the fire that breaks from thee then, a billion

Times told lovelier, more dangerous, O my chevalier!

   No wonder of it: shéer plód makes plough down sillion

Shine, and blue-bleak embers, ah my dear,

    Fall, gall themselves, and gash gold-vermilion.

thick voluminous shiny soil turned over by a plough

So we plod with the plough and shine; we die as embers and are rekindled.  Sometimes a bird in flight will stir our dying heart-in-hiding.

Here’s what you need to know about Hamas.

Hamas is an Islamist terror group that has become a de-facto government.

Hamas, an Arabic acronym for Islamic Resistance Movement, was founded in 1987, at the start of the first Palestinian intifada, or uprising against Israel. The intifada was a grassroots-led uprising, and at the time, the leading organized Palestinian movement, the Palestine Liberation Organization, was secular.

Hamas was founded as a religious Muslim alternative. It is an offshoot of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist organization, in Palestinian society. Like the PLO did, Hamas carried out violent attacks against Israel. But unlike the PLO, it sought to establish a theocratic Muslim Palestinian state in what is now Israel, the West Bank and Gaza. After its founding, Hamas established a network of charities and social services in Palestinian cities, which attracted followers.

PAPERS: Cromwell thought he could never shed blood enough. The contrast is certainly correct as regards me, for I conceive one drop too much; and he does well to say that he prefers my policy, for I am for peace, harmony, and good will—the triumph of liberty, and perfect freedom of conscience for every human being (loud cheers).

In the county which I represent, after a space of several months since the former assizes, and out of a population of 750,000, there were only 56 prisoners for trial, and of these 20 were for petty larcenies, which the judge said ought to have been tried at quarter sessions; and out of the remainder there were six Orangemen, who were in for the murder which I have spoken of! The entire number left thus amounted to only 30, out of the whole population of 800,000. But even 30 sounds large in comparison with the numbers for trial at other places- In the city of Cork which, including the suburbs, contains nearly 180,000 inhabitants, there were only three persons in gaol; in Waterford there were three in gaol, in Kilkenny they had only two or three, and even in Limerick, they had scarcely a single prisoner In Clare the judges had the same remark to make there was scarcely a single offence for trial, and throughout the land the same state continues. These are the men that they call uncivilised. Oh, the country that produced Father Mathew, and five millions of teetotallers cannot be called a country of savages (hear, hear)

Cheltenham paper—I suppose the writer who speaks of the.” wretched and ferocious slaves of O’Connell, of those who have never been brought under the gentle sway of the Protestant faith”—calls himself a Protestant (hear, hear) ?. And so ” the gentle sway of the Protestant faith” is to cut our throat?. I can only say that I am glad we have not many such Protestants amongst us. But no, that is not the Protestantism of some of the mild and gentle friends who are now around me. I know not what may be the Protestantism of my friend Mr. Steele.

Limerick Chronicle

21 June 1779

Died: Near Bandon, Mrs. STONE, aged 43. This woman was, perhaps, the most remarkable heroine that this or any other age has produced; being married very young to a sergeant in a marching regiment, of the name STONE, she accompanied him, though she was rather of a small and delicate make, through most of the hardships our armies underwent in America during the last war; no consideration of fear could make her leave his side through nine engagements, in which her husband was concerned; she helped to carry him off wounded twice from the field of battle; and it is a fact that can be testified by living witnesses now in this city, that at the siege of Louisbough, at a time when many of our troops were killed, she supplied the living with powder cartridges of the dead, and animated the troops she was next to by her words and actions. Though a woman of the most surprising intrepidity, she was never known to be guilty of any conduct which could impeach her delicacy, or violate the modest demeanour of her sex. She was never known to drop a tear, but when departing her husband in death; and died the admiration and regret of all who knew her.

POLAND: On April 18, 1025, shortly before his death, Duke Bolesław the Brave of Poland succeeded in obtaining the papal permission to crown himself, and thus became the first King of Poland.

Throughout the 10th century, the West Slavic tribes, united under the Piast dukes, who regarded themselves as descendants of the semi-legendary Piast the Wheelwright (Piast Kołodziej), went through a period of accelerated building of fortified settlements and territorial expansion. This gave rise to developed regions along the upper Vistula, the coast of the Baltic Sea and in Greater Poland.

Under Mieszko I, the expanded territory was converted to Christianity in 966, when the Piast duke married Princess Doubravka of Bohemia. Known as the “Baptism of Poland”, the event laid the basis for the development of a Polish state and its integration into the prevailing European culture. In fact, its date is often used to mark the symbolic beginning of Polish statehood.

CONGRATULATIONS to Fr. Kevin McNamara on the fortieth anniversary of his ordination, it is also a sad time for him as he is unable to celebrate, due to government restrictions.

Kevin for organising the Novena last week, many hours work and the contribution of so many volunteers, are an inspiration to people who may have become feeble in the faith. The success of the Novena which was done  from the grass roots up, is an example to big government, that ordinary people knows what is best for the community.

SPEAKERS at Moyvane Church Novena last week, details from Parish Newsletter, see social media for much more; Thady opened the Novena reminding us of the warm humanity of the Sacred Heart.   Geraldine our first speaker reminded us in such a moving and generous way of the reality of Faith, Hope and Love……..and the greatest is Love.  Her husband John, 49, son Tomás, 14 and Amelia, 6 still motivate her daily to keep their love alive.  I cried and prayed for her – powerful start.  Then our very own Gabriel – honest, uplifting and from the heart – a light that darkness could not overpower.  When he said ‘he was snookered!’  No confession, no Communion, cut off from the Sacred Heart! – that was so sad and painful to hear.   Thank God for the Sacred Heart light, love and forgiveness which Gabriel never gave up on.  Next, John Quinn from the ‘Home of the Oyster’ – Clarinbridge.  The seven seanfhocails all directing us to the Heart of Jesus.  Gems of faith placed before us by an extraordinary wordsmith – still writing, still sharing, still inspiring.  His voice is magic. So sad to hear John tell us about poor Fr. Dineen S.J. late of Rathmore who paid an awful price for his dedication to the Irish language.  Fr. Seán put a lovely reflective presentation on the ‘new normal’ before us on Sunday.  So well-crafted and presented, we were all so proud that he is one of our own – the spontaneous round of applause showed that.  Mairead with the beautiful Sacred Heart statue which her late great mum received on her baptism day has been a treasured presence to this very day in her home and with her loving family.  It has inspired her in her generous work and presence with those who live alone and those heavy with loneliness.  She called on us to invest more in family life allowing the Sacred Heart to inspire us.   Next, Brenda invited us in a lovely way to move from head to heart.  That journey for her has been so, so special in beautiful Knockanure.  In a move to heart, especially the Sacred Heart, life can and will be so much more meaningful.  Next, we had Fr. Tom speaking to us on the occasion of his 37th Anniversary of his Ordination, the Feast of St. Columba.  Lovingly he traced the early days of his Priesthood which brought him to Derry in the height of the troubles in Northern Ireland.  The people helped him – they were people of faith, they were people of heart who trusted the Sacred Heart.

CANADA: “residential school” system was an atrocity, in which the Church should never have been involved. Under this system, set up in the late 19th century by the Canadian government’s Department of Indian Affairs, more than 150,000 children were taken from their families and trained—often under deficient and even abusive conditions—to adapt to the country’s now-dominant culture. This was not “genocide,” as some activists have charged, but it was a deplorable effort to eradicate a native culture.

Irish Independent 1905-current, Friday, 03 June, 1921; Page: 5

HEAVY CASUALTIES IN CO. KERRY. OFFICER & THREE R.I.C DEAD

An ambush of, 12 R.I.C, mid-way between Castlemaine and  Milltown, on Wed. evening, resulted in the following 9 casualties

KILLED. Dist.-lnsp. M’Caughey (35), native of Co Monaghan; Sergt. Collery, Sligo; Const. Quirke (33), Co. Cork) and Const. T. Cooney (28), Co. Leitrim. WOUNDED. Const. M’Cormack (23), Dublin; Const. Harvey, slightly, in face; Const. Bergin, in leg; Const. Bowles in back and leg; Const. Toomey, slightly;

The other three policemen—Constables Foley, Beard, and Herne—were uninjured. Sergt. Collery leaves a wife and 9 children.

FROM BOTH SIDES OF ROAD. The patrol were returning on cycles to Killorglin from Tralee, when fire was opened on them from both sides of the road, at a spot where the fences afforded good cover to the attackers. Before the patrol had time to realise their position, the District-Inspector and Sergt. Collory, who were leading, fell. Then began a fight which, during its half hour’s duration, was most intense, the firing being continuous, and revolvers, rifles, and bombs brought into use. After the officer and sergeant were shot the remainder of the patrol sought what little shelter the road offered and returned the fire, using bombs with, they declare, apparent effect. Const. Quirke was killed rather early, and Const. Cooney fatally  wounded.

 TERRIFIC SHOOTING. The fierce conflict went on until only 3 of the police were left unwounded. Assisting their wounded comrades, they retreated, having left their cycles, but taking all their arms and those of their disabled companions. The people for miles around were in terror, for the noise of the shooting was terrific.

When things had subsided the lonely figure of a woman was seen over the strewn  bodies. Rev. T. O’Sullivan, C.C., Milltown, was shortly on the scene, and rendered spiritual aid All through the evening Fr. O’Sullivan did everything possible for the seriously wounded, as did Dr. Sheehan, M.O. The bodies were conveyed to the Catholic church, Milltown, and the seriously wounded to houses near by, while the others were assisted by their comrades to Killorglin by a circuitous route. All have since been conveyed to Tralee.

The casualties to the attackers are unknown.

A CONSTABLE DYING.

According to another account, the ambushers opened fire from behind a hedge. The R.I.C. returned the fire, and after a sharp exchange eight of the Constabulary fell—four killed and four wounded—the remaining four getting back to Killorglin by the railway

The message adds that it is not known whether there are any casualties among the I.R.A.

OFFICIAL REPORT.

The Dublin Castle report

District-Inspector, sergeant, and 2 constables were shot dead and  and 3 other constables  were wounded.

ATTACK ON MILITARY.

G.H.Q., Dublin, announced yesterday “While on patrol at 8 p.m. on Tues a soldier of the Royal Fusiliers was accidentally wounded. Yesterday morning a party of the R. Fusiliers on bicycles, accompanied by a light motor van, proceeded from Killarney to Rathmore to bring in the wounded man. When a section of the party reached the river crossing one mile north of Baraduff, on the return journey in the evening, heavy fire was opened upon them at about 400 yards range,

Though the party numbered only one officer and 10 other ranks, they advanced at once towards the direction from which the fire came, but the attackers had disappeared. The driver of the car was wounded in the foot. At the point of the ambush the road had been littered with broken glass, which had been placed there since the morning.

 In the meantime the soldier patient had, owing to the bad state of the road, been transferred to a hand trolley and all safely reached their destination.

REFLECTION: Luke and I discuss how our desires are strongly mimetic, that is, imitative, and how there are two groups of people that act as models of desire for us: celebrities and public figures who are distant from us, and friends, family, and colleagues who are close to us. Luke explains why it’s actually that latter group where we experience the most rivalry and conflict, because the more similar we are, the more we end up competing for the same things, the more envy we experience, and the more we want to differentiate ourselves from the crowd, even though the areas in which to do so can be increasingly small. In fact, someone can be a model of desire, not only in influencing us to imitate them, but in motivating us to act in the opposite way. Luke shares how mimetic desire can be both a negative and destructive or a positive and productive force, and offers advice on how to harness it for the latter purpose by humbly recognizing the way other people are influencing our wants, and using that knowledge to opt out of games we don’t want to play, utilize the healthy aspects of competition without allowing it to get us off track, and intentionally choose worthy, even transcendent, models of desire to emulate.

INCOME Tax; Mike Bloomberg according to reports paid $70.7 million on income of $1.9 billion in 2018, which amounts to a 3.7% tax rate. American household generally pays about 14% in federal income tax. Mr Bloomberg claims to what he gives to charity and pays in taxes amounts to approximately 75% of his annual income, amounting to $11 billion in his lifetime. ————

(G7 Summit proposal to levy a common tax on corporations, proposed by President Biden may harm Ireland.)

———————————————-

As the two men were sat next to each other, Mr Biden said: “I told the Prime Minister we have something in common. We both married way above our stations.”

Mr Johnson responded: “I’m not going to dissent on that one. I’m not going to disagree with you there or indeed on anything else, I think highly likely.”

LAY PEOPLE TO TAKE LEADERSHIP ROLES: Sunday 3rd April sees the launch of the new volunteer Ministry of the Lay Pastoral Leader.

POPE: “An older person, one who has lived a long time, and receives the gift of a lucid and passionate testimony of his history, is an irreplaceable blessing.”

In a personal testimony, Pope Francis recalled learning about his abhorrence and anger at war from his grandfather, who fought on the Piave in 1914.

“He passed on this anger to me,” recalled the Pope, “because he told me about the suffering of a war. And you don’t learn that in books or in other ways… you learn it this way, passing it on from grandparents to grandchildren.”

He went on to say that “today, unfortunately, this is not the case and we think that grandparents are discarded material: no! No! They are the living memory of a people, and young people and children need to hear from their grandparents.”

Wisdom of the elderly

“In our culture, which is so ‘politically correct,’ he noted, “this path seems to be hindered in many ways.”

Therefore, the Pope added, we greatly need the wisdom and experience of the elderly to help new generations know the Church from the inside, to live lives of fidelity to God’s word, to persevere in hope amid trials, and to show compassionate love for all our brothers and sisters.

Desmond Hall an OPW managed site

West Limerick preserves many of Ireland’s surviving spacious medieval halls. The Desmond Banqueting Hall is an imposing two-storey structure and was used by the Earls of Desmond for banqueting and entertainment. The Hall, vaulted lower chamber and adjoining tower were all constructed during the 15th century (the hall and chamber were built on the remains of a 13th century structure of similar size). Its restored medieval features include and oak musicians’ gallery and a limestone hooded fireplace.

Listowel Castle

Listowel Castle stands on an elevation overlooking the River Feale, above the location of a strategic ford. Although only half of the building survives, it is still one of Kerry’s best examples of Anglo-Norman architecture. Only two of the original four square towers, standing over 15 metres high, remain. The towers are united by a curtain wall of the same height and linked together – unusually – by an arch on one side. Listowel was the last bastion against the forces of Queen Elizabeth in the First Desmond Rebellion in 1569. The castle’s garrison held out for 28 days of siege before finally being overpowered by Sir Charles Wilmot. In the days following the castle’s fall, Wilmot executed all of the soldiers left inside.

PLASTIC: Researchers took blood samples from anonymous, healthy adults, and looked for plastics that were between 700 and 500,000 nanometers (nm). Seven hundred nm is around 140 times smaller than the width of a human hair, writes The Wire Science’s Aathira Perinchery.

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), commonly used in disposable water bottles, was the most widely encountered plastic polymer and found in about 50 percent of the donors. The second most common, polystyrene (PS), which is used for food packaging and polystyrene foam, was found in about 36 percent, per the study.

Indulgence during Lent

Did you know that there are several ways you can gain a plenary indulgence during Lent? It’s true! There are actually four ways you can receive one. Even though Lent is nearly over, there is still plenty of time for you to complete any, or all, of these.

First of all, what is a plenary indulgence?

A plenary indulgence is a grace granted by the Catholic Church through the merits of Jesus Christ, Mary, and all the saints to remove the temporal punishment due to sin. The indulgence cleanses a person of all temporal punishment due to sin. However, it must always be accompanied by a full detachment from sin.

Now that we know what a plenary indulgence is, how do we receive one during Lent?

The first way is to spend at least 30 minutes in adoration. Visiting the Blessed Sacrament is important all year round. So why not take part in this beautiful practice during Lent and receive some additional graces too?

If you’ve never been to adoration, or struggle to stay awake (don’t worry, we’ve all been there), try reading a couple of chapters from the Gospels, pray a rosary, or really focus on being in Christ’s presence.

The next way is to take part in the Stations of the Cross, which is when we meditate on the Lord’s Passion and Death. Every Catholic church should have some kind of Stations of the Cross, whether they are simple or elaborate. Any will do!

However, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. The Holy See’s Manual of Indulgences, Fourth Edition, does state that there have to be 14 stations “representing the 14 stations of Jerusalem.”

The manual also reminds us that “progression from one station to the next is required.” Although, if there are too many people and moving would cause an inconvenience, it is sufficient that at least the one conducting the Way of the Cross move from station to station. In other words, if you attend the Stations of the Cross with many participants and everyone remains in the pews while the priest moves to each station, that is still valid.

This specific indulgence can even be gained once a day for those who can attend church daily and wish to perform the Stations of the Cross on their own.

The next way is by praying the rosary “in a church or oratory, or in a family, a religious community, or an association of the faithful.”

The last way is by reading or listening to Sacred Scripture. Just make sure you spend at least half an hour with the Word of God and it counts.

 There are some conditions, like the fine print, that assure you receive your indulgence.

First, you must have complete detachment from all sin, even venial.

Then you have to go to confession, receive Holy Communion, and pray for the intentions of the pope. Sacramental confession and receiving the Eucharist can happen up to about 20 days before or after the act performed to receive a plenary indulgence.

It is appropriate that Communion and the prayer take place on the same day that the work is completed. One sacramental confession is sufficient for several plenary indulgences. However, for each plenary indulgence one wishes to receive, a separate reception of the Eucharist and a separate prayer for the intentions of the Holy Father are required.

Once you have followed these steps, rest assured that you have received a plenary indulgence.

NURSING: While wounded in battle in 1898, Edward Baker wished for nursing on the battlefield. Nine years later, he founded a group that would do just that: the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry (FANY). He recruited young British women who could ride and owned horses, and the group soon came into being. FANYs received international attention. In 1909 an American newspaper, the Statesman Journal, described the group as “well nigh revolutionary … the idea is that the women shall care for the wounded as they fall and shall practically enter the area of the fight.” FANYs did see their fair share of action as they served valiantly in World War I, facing Zeppelin raids, vehicle problems, shellfire, death, and disease. At first unaccepted by their home country, FANYs provided help elsewhere, for the Belgian and French armies, setting up hospitals and serving on battlefields. The British didn’t utilise their services until January 1, 1916.

County Kerry Farmers Raise Hell Holidaymakers in Ballybunion, Co. Kerry, could find that they are sharing their stretch of beach with tractors and trailers this summer if the area’s angry farmers’ demands are not met. They are looking for action from the Minister for Industry and Commerce on the question of removal of material—sand gravel and seaweed—which they hold they have a right to. For some time now the farmers have been fighting for the right to remove material from the foreshore but the campaign came to a head last week when farmers drove en masse to the strand to load up their trailers. After loading up, the farmers drove at a crawl through Ballybunion causing a serious traffic hold up. An order made by the Minister for Industry and Commerce in 1932 and updated in 1950 permits tractor owners residing in North Kerry and the parish of Athea, Co. Limerick, to remove only sand and seaweed from the foreshore between October 1 and June 1, but not the remainder of the year. The threat of the beach takeover during the summer was made by the farmers’ chairman, Michael Griffin: “If they try to keep us out we will go there and take over the strand instead of the visitors. “We feel it is up to the Minister to become involved and we feel we have a right there. Seventy years ago they tried to close the beach to us and also forty years ago, when three men went to jail over the matter.”

PAGE 14 THE IRISH PEOPLE SATURDAY, JUNE 23, 1973

 IRISH NATIONAL IMMIGRATION Statement of John P. Collins, National Chairman of the American Irish National Immigration Committee delivered before Subcommittee No. 1 – Immigration and Nationality of the Judiciary Committee, United States House of Representatives, Washington, D.C. Mr. Chairman, Members of the Congress: First, I take the liberty, Mr. Chairman to congratulate you on your appointment as Chairman of Subcommittee No. 1. Your succession to the Chair of your distinguished predecessor is a well deserved appointment. I represent today, the American Irish Immigration Committee, a national group with chapters in thirty states, composed of Protestants, Catholics and Jews. Our members are represented in all the major Irish organizations in the United States including the Ancient Order of Hibernians, the Gaelic Athletic Association, the Knights of Equity, the American Irish Historical Society, county associations and American Irish clubs and organizations. Our committee directs your attention to H.R. 981, section 9, amending Section 212 (d) (5) (c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, dealing with refugees. We urge its enactment. Only recently, your subcommittee in other hearings, received a detailed report on the happenings in the northern six county area of Ireland, known to us as occupied Ireland. Discrimination, terror; oppression and injustice are the everyday occurrence in this area. We have had occasion to interview residents of this area visiting the U.S. who have been the victims of discrimination in housing, in jobs; who have been the victims of the terror in the area, by reason of their political opinions and their religious persuasion. On the advice of their families, relatives, friends, solicitors, clergymen and yes, even on the advice of certain members of the British Parliament, they have sought to remain in the United States. Returning to occupied Ireland would be foolhardy for them. Fear of their safety demands that they reside elsewhere. These individuals, not yet large in number, have aunts, uncles and cousins in the U.S. Lacking sisters and brothers who are U.S. citizens, they cannot qualify for fifth preference visas. Nor can they meet the requirement of the other family related preferences. The stringent application of labour clearance, makes it impossible for them to qualify for a non-preference, third preference or sixth preference visa. Their only hope is to seek asylum here and obtain status as a refugee. Our nation has always been the haven of the oppressed, yet the United States refuses to grant asylum to one in the predicament that I have just outlined. In January 1972, I communicated with the Immigration and Naturalization Service, in Washington requesting information as to the position of the government on the matter. I received the following reply: “Reference is made to your letter of January 24, 1972, concerning visitors from Northern Ireland who do not desire to return abroad. Detailed instructions have been furnished our local offices for the processing of any alien who does not desire to return to his home country because of fear of persecution due to race, religion or political opinion. Each case of this type is decided on its merits. If you know of anyone who falls within this category, it is suggested that you direct the individual to call at the New York office of this Service at 20 West Broadway in order that their cases may be given consideration. Persons in other parts of the country may present themselves at the nearest local office of the Service having jurisdiction over their location. Sincerely, (Sgd.) James F. Greene Associate Commissioner Operations”

Deep regret is expressed among his colleagues and the general public at the death which occurred rather unexpectedly of M. Stack, N.T Ballindine. A native or Listowel, he held the Carlysle and Blake Premium

The news of the sudden death of Mrs. C. Mulvihill near Newtownsandes has created a great shock to the community as the deceased who was mother of M. C Mulvihill, R.D.C., —————————-

The funeral of Mrs. Gibson, Listowel, widow of T. Gibson, draper; mother of Dr. M. Gibson, Richmond Hospital, Dublin, and sister of J Stack, ex-M.P., was largely attended by both clergy and laity.

A young horse the property of John Broderick, Caherlane, Abbeyfeale took flight outside the town a few days ago and to prevent the animal running through the town the driver faced him for the road fence which he cleared and was strangled on the other side before he could be detached from the cart.

Tralee Guardians have congratulated Mrs. Maud Welsh on her appointment as Superintendent under the National Service Scheme.

The late Capt. M. J. Collis Sandes (of Tralee) killed In action, left £45,102, and bequeathed £3,000 each and household and personal effects to his three sisters, Joan, Margaret and Doris, and £250 a year to his aunt, G. Collis, with the residue for all his sisters.

TITANIC: When the Titanic set out on her maiden voyage in 1912, she was the largest vessel in the world with a passenger capacity of 2,435. The RMS Titanic sank in the early morning hours of 15 April 1912 in the North Atlantic Ocean, four days into her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City.  Those who had escaped the Titanic watched helplessly from the lifeboats as the figures on deck grew ever dimmer and the sounds of hymns and prayers now mingled with wailing.

Noting the first incursions of dark waters upon the deck, the priest made himself as visible as he could before those assembled and then proceeded to raise his hand in one last act of blessing and absolution. Then, with his crucifix and rosary and in his hand, Father Byles began once more to lead those gathered around him in the recitation of that ancient prayer as the band continued to play. 

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;

The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.

Hold … Thy cross before my closing eyes …

In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

BISHOP of Limerick; “We imagine the plight and trauma of families, mothers and children. Young adults realise young people of their age, men and women, have been called to war. We all feel threatened by how war can so easily escalate in a way we’d have never foreseen possible in Europe.”

Bishop Leahy, however, urged young people to open up to issues, not least of they are feeling anxious and said we need look no further than US Masters champion Scottie Scheffler in how he overcame the weight of the pressure he felt on Sunday morning.

The Bishop of Limerick said in conclusion that Scheffler “spoke about being almost overwhelmed the morning of the final round, breaking down in tears, talking about not being ready ‘for this’. Like so many of us he turned to an ally for support, his wife Meredith, who asked, ‘who are you to say you are not ready’. They then talked about God’s will. ‘God is in control and the Lord is leading me. And if today is my time, then it’s my time’, he said. Peace and calm can come in troubled waters if you put your faith in those closest to you and in God.”

In fact, studies suggest that as much as 50% of all groceries are sold because of impulsiveness – and over 87% of shoppers make impulse buys.

While it is complicated and affected by many factors, such as a need for arousal and lack of self-control, it is known that external shopping cues – “buy one get one free” offers, discounts and in-store promotional displays, for example – play a key role.

The Irish People 1984-10-13 Irish People

1984-10-13 Irish People  page8-9

 WITH THE SPLIT in the Irish Volunteers at the outbreak of the First World War, about 170,000 men followed Irish Parliamentary Party leader John Redmond into the National Volunteers and, from there, into the trenches of Europe. A minority of Volunteers, about 11,000, rejected Redmond’s assertion that Irish freedom could be won on the battlefields of Europe but were themselves divided on the type of freedom they wanted and how it should be achieved. When a decision was taken to stage an armed uprising at Easter 1916, it was taken by a small minority within the depleted Irish Volunteers. • Neither Eoin MacNeill, who was nominal head of the Volunteers, nor people like Arthur Griffith, were consulted about the rising. Similarly, they were told nothing of a decision taken by the same conspiratorial group of IRB officers within the Volunteers to import arms for this rebellion. MANDATE Without any electoral mandate from the Irish people, most of whom supported Redmond, and without the say-so of the Volunteer movement to which they belonged, this group of IRB men proceeded with their plans and contacted John Devoy in America at the beginning of February 1916. They claimed their mandate from the inalienable right of an oppressed people to rise against their oppressors with arms. Since Devoy was the leader of Clan na Gael, the Irish support group in America, he was told about the rising and about the need for arms which, he was advised, ‘should be sent to Limerick Quay between April 20th and 23rd 1916’. But, as Devoy pointed out in his Recollections of this period: “This request to ‘send a shipment of arms’ was, of course, intended to be transmitted to Germany, the men in Ireland knew that all funds in the possession of the Clan na Gael had been sent to them and that consequently we in the United States were unable to purchase such armaments as they required.” And he added: “Even if we held special funds for that purpose, it would be practically impossible to load and clear such a cargo in face of Wilson’s (US President Woodrow Wilson) Secret Service, which was watching us very keenly and was in closest touch with the English, communicating to them everything/ even of the slightest importance. ” EMBASSY Through the German Embassy in the United States, Devoy contacted the German War Staff and within days they replied: “It is possible to send two or three small fishing steamers with about ten machine guns, twenty thousand rifles, ammunition and explosives to Fenit Pier in Tralee Bay. Irish pilots should wait north of Inishtooskert Island from before dawn of April 20th, displaying at intervals three green lights. Disembarkation must be effected immediately. Let us know if this can be done.” The Germans had clearly expected an appeal for weapons from Ireland. On November 8th 1915 the German Admiralty had discussed the possibility of such a shipment only to reject the idea on the grounds that it would endanger submarines. But by March 1916 the opinion of the Admiralty was changed by the German War Staff, who saw the potential advantages in a widespread Irish uprising against British rule. EXAGGERATED This change of mind was also prompted by some ‘misleading’ information supplied to the Germans by the IRB. While the strength of British troops and RIC in Ireland was estimated at 40,000, the strength of Irish forces was grossly exaggerated. Besides claiming the allegiance of 40,000 Irish Volunteers, they ‘anticipated’ that 50,000 Red- mondite Volunteers would join the rebellion and that it was ‘probable’ that thousands of unorganised Irishmen would also join an uprising. On the basis of this report, the IRB asked for 25,000- 50,000 rifles, a proportionate number of machine guns and field artillery as well as a number of officers. The report optimistically concluded that ‘even for 100,000 rifles the necessary number of men would be obtainable’. By March 17th, the German Admiralty had agreed to the shipment to Tralee Bay but had decided that a single small steamer, rather than three trawlers, would be used to ferry the weapons.

====================================

Konstantin turned to a virtual private network, an encrypted digital tunnel commonly known as a VPN. Since the war began in late February, VPNs have been downloaded in Russia by the hundreds of thousands a day, a massive surge in demand that represents a direct challenge to President Vladimir Putin and his attempt to seal Russians off from the wider world. By protecting the locations and identities of users, VPNs are now granting millions of Russians access to blocked material.

Downloading one in his Moscow apartment, Konstantin said, brought back memories of the 1980s in the Soviet Union, when he used a shortwave radio to hear forbidden news of dissident arrests on Radio Liberty, which is funded by the United States.

During beam-conditioning, only two groups, or “packages,” of about 100 million proton particles make the circuit in opposite directions (see sidebar). Once the LHC is fully functional, the team will ratchet the beams up to at least billions of protons per package, with multiple packages loaded at one time.

In New Book, South African Catholic Priest Advocates for “Ubuntu, justice under the tree”

————-

The new book, he said, makes reference to the spirit of Ubuntu, a term that describes interpersonal relationships, especially how a person relates with other human beings.

“Ubuntu calls for one to move out of himself or herself to look at the needs of others,” Fr. Xulu said, adding that the spirit of Ubuntu can be used to address interpersonal struggles, including situations when “people are trapped in conflicts, unfounded allegations, crimes, and worst, various kinds of hatred.”

“Others are traumatized to go to courts, yet they labor in physical and emotional crimes and abuses,” Fr. Xulu said, underscoring the need for an alternative “judicial plan” through Ubuntu, which he proposes in his new book, “justice under the tree”.

Situations of conflict “are in churches, religious communities, and people in general cannot afford high legal fees,” he said, adding that “justice under the tree” he is advocating for in his new five-chapter book “might not be absolute but will certainly make a difference and Ubuntu calls to look for others, care for others.”

For the first time in three years, Catholics held a solemn procession through the streets of Naples on the first weekend of May after the blood of St. Januarius was found liquefied.

Archbishop Domenico Battaglia of Naples opened the safe holding the relic of St. Januarius’ blood in Naples Cathedral on April 30 and found that the blood had already liquefied.

The reputed miracle usually occurs up to three times a year when the archbishop holds up and rotates the ampoules containing blood, revealing that the dried blood has liquified.

In Neapolitan lore, the failure of the blood to liquefy signals war, famine, disease, or other disaster.

(JTA) — It began like countless other antisemitic incidents in Antwerp: A man shouted insults and made threatening gestures at members of the Belgian city’s large Orthodox Jewish community.

But the incident on Sunday near the city’s central railway station took an unexpected turn.

After the alleged perpetrator appeared to swing his arm to hit a Jewish man in haredi Orthodox garb, the would-be victim lunged back and overpowered his attacker, holding him down on the ground until police took the suspect into custody.

Here is what the Dubai Rose Centre posted online about Aoife Trench.

Now to introduce our second Rose entrant for Dubai Rose Selection 2022 hosted by @mcgettigansjlt🌹. Teacher and musician Aoife Trench hails from Listowel, Co. Kerry. As well as forming a trad band with friends since her arrival in Dubai, she has also travelled at every opportunity – visiting South Asia and East Africa – and has tried out new hobbies, one of them being taking up football and camogie with Jumeirah Gaels.

Aoife is a fluent Irish speaker and spent the last 4 years of her career teaching in Gaelscoil Uí Drisceoil in Cork – a big change from her current setup in Dubai! This hasn’t stopped her imparting Irish culture to her students here however – if you hear young children around Dubai uttering “Dia dhuit” and “Conas atá tú?”, you know who’s responsible!

Musically, Aoife has toured Ireland and the UK with Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann as well as providing music and singing lessons through her local CCÉ branches in North Kerry, and now here she makes time for a few tunes every month in Fibber Magees’ Thursday trad sessions.Be sure to book your brunch tickets for our Rose Selection Night on May 20th to hear Aoife and our other musical Roses performing onstage!

Shannon Parish will see the end of an era this weekend as the local Apostolic Works Society hold their final display after 33 years.

The group, made up mostly of local women but also one equally dedicated man, was established in 1989 and for over three decades produced and supplied overseas missionaries with  vestments, Mass kits, and other resources to assist them in their work.

Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, the Shannon group will host their last display from 11.00am today at St Patrick’s Comprehensive School in the town.

Former Shannon Parish Priest Fr Tom Ryan said: “One of the great success stories of Shannon Parish 55-year history has been the establishment in 1989 of the Shannon branch of Apostolic Workers. This group of dedicated and inspirational workers was set up in 1989 when Fr Pat Mulcahy came to the parish. Fr Pat’s mother  was involved with the Apostolic Workers in his native parish of Ballywilliam Co.Tipperary.

The ‘almost’ ladies organisation supported missionaries with resources like vestments, Mass kits, and other resources for their missionary work. They met every week, chatted, knitted , prayed and fundraised for the missions. They worked in partnership with local school children who shared some of the gift money received on occasions like Confirmation and First Holy Communion to support children in developing countries.”

“Now after 33-year history and ageing personnel as well as the inability to meet during lockdown, the decision has been made that the centre will be suspended,” Fr Tom added.

“During my years in the parish of Shannon this organisation and its members did tremendous work for both the parish and the missions and raised substantial amount of money to support missionaries. They made dreams for missionaries become reality.

I take this opportunity to express my thanks to all members for the time and effort over the past 33 years to witness to the gospel by using their talents and generously sharing with others. I wish all members good health and happiness and pray eternal rest on those members who gave generously and who have died,” Fr Tom Ryan said.

{When I came to town first, Listowel had an apostolic society. Generous local volunteers, I think they were all women, gave their time and talents to make vestments for priests at home and abroad. A parish bazaar used to be held to raise money for materials and during this event lines of beautifully made vestments used to be displayed along the walls of the school hall in Scoil Réalta na Maidine. I wonder does anyone have photographs or memories of this forgotten Society.}

Military historian Pat Lawlor and Martin Moore chat with Liam O’Sullivan and cover some key incidents that occurred in Kerry during the Irish Civil War. Apologies for the difficulty at the start !

Kerry was the scene of some of the bloodiest and most protracted fighting during the Civil War. We take a look at some key encounters that shaped the Civil War in Kerry. When the Provisional Government landed troops by sea, the anti-Treaty forces were taken completely by surprise. Although the initial fighting was intense, resistance soon settled into a prolonged and bloody period of guerrilla warfare.

It’s a meeting of 70 years and three continents later – one ring in the making found its original owner.

“It feels like Lord of the Rings!” said Lt. Col. Jos Groen. “You know, I have to give it away, but it’s so precious.”

The precious class ring belonged to Melissa Jenkins’ great-uncle, Joseph Sullivan, a 1946 graduate of St. James Catholic High School who fought in the Korean War.

“How the ring ended up in the Netherlands is,” Lt. Groen said, “that’s something we will never know, unfortunately..

What we do know that during the war, a Dutch soldier somehow got ahold of Sullivan’s class ring. He then gave it to a different Dutch soldier, who shared that story a few years ago to Dutch Lieutenant Colonel Jos Groen. He made it his mission to return the ring using its markings as a guide. He discovered it came from Chester’s St. James Catholic H.S.

The alumni association posted a photo fo it on Facebook, which Jenkins immediately recognized as her great uncle’s class ring.

“And I’m happy that I can bring it back to the family,” Lt. Groen said.

The end of a ring’s journey was only the beginning of a lifelong friendship.

HUMAN Rights: The Christian legal group ADF International said that the original draft highlighted the extent of anti-Christian persecution around the world, but the European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs made substantial changes to the text.

“The persecution of Christians in the Middle East and Africa was omitted and all but one reference to Christians was deleted,” ADF International said.

“The report does include multiple references emphasizing protections for atheist, secular or humanist belief minorities.”

The vote took place after the Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Union (COMECE) suggested that the report treated the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion and the right to life as “second-class rights.”

COMECE general secretary Father Manuel Enrique Barrios Prieto said on May 3: “Any attempt to undermine the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion and the right to life through abusive interpretations that unduly restrict their legitimate scope or to subject them to newly created and non-consensual ‘so-called human rights,’ including abortion, constitute a serious violation of the international law that discredits the European Union before the international community and before millions of European citizens.”

The Moscow Patriarchate’s external relations department said in a May 4 statement that the pope’s words were “unlikely to contribute to the establishment of a constructive dialogue” between the Catholic Church and Russian Orthodox Church.

The pope and the Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia discussed the war during a video conference call on March 16. In an interview with an Italian newspaper published on May 3, Pope Francis said that “a patriarch can’t lower himself to become Putin’s altar boy.”

The statement issued by the communications service of the Moscow Patriarchate’s Department for External Church Relations (DECR) said: “It is regrettable that a month and a half after the conversation with Patriarch Kirill, Pope Francis chose the wrong tone to convey the content of this conversation.”

ASDEE

Asdee notes celebrates its 40th birthday

When you get a bit longer in the tooth like myself the years seem to go bye so quickly and with so many things happening in this crazy world we live in sometimes looking back it seems to be just a dream.

This week marks a very special landmark in the history of the Asdee Notes as this week the weekly column celebrates its 40th anniversary.

A lot of water has gone down the river in Asdee over the past 4 decades with some huge changes in peoples lives most of them for the better.

How the weekly notes came to fruition happened out of the blue back in May 1982 when a few people had expressed an interest in getting the Asdee Notes off the ground.

At that time the neighbouring Ballylongford Notes were written by my good friend the late Seamus O Neill and after a chat with him he gave his backing for it.

A couple of people said they would do the notes but eventually it was left to me to get the show off the ground.

I wrote to The Editor of The Kerryman at that time the late Seamus Mc Conville and in his reply said he would accept my stuff on a trial basis.

As the old cliché goes the rest is history and 40 years later I am still doing the job.

Now my fledging journalistic career took off the ground but there was no guarantee that I would become a millionaire along the journey I was on.

Of course a huge amount of change has happened over the past 4 decades with the country flourishing through the 80’s into the 90’s and when the Celtic Tiger burst people got a reality check and had to tighten their spending habits as the recession of the 90’s hit people of all age groups.

Starting out the Notes were composed every Sunday night and were compiled by the good old reliable biro and you had to be careful to try and have your material as accurate as you could as it would be a bit of a mess if changes had to be done at a later stage.

Asdee were fortunate to have a very thriving local community at this particular time and there was plenty of organisations and clubs who were only too happy to get a bit of free publicity.

I was walking on shells for the first few weeks as my status in the community mushroomed and people I met every day had good things to say about what I was doing.

I was very anxious ahead of my first notes being published the first death that appeared was the late Margaret Hennessy of Larha who was an institution in the community.

She was the pillar of the local community and she done a phenomenal amount of voluntary work for local organisations.

A couple of weeks later came the sudden death of the late Kerry footballer Eamon O Donoghue.

There was a number of local people who were great to me in the early years such as the late Jimmy O Carroll (The Road) who ran all the Padre Pio pilgrimages to Knock.

The late Martin Mulvihill was also furnishing me with a lot of news items over the years. Martin was a local newspaper correspondent back in the 50’s.

The late Tommy Walsh of Asdee East gave me huge encouragement and often furnished me with news items when I popped into his retail grocery.

Another man who was good to me also was the late Mick Hennessy of Tullahinell who was a local legend promoting Drama PTAA and Scor in the local community.

The local Comhaltas, PTAA, ICA and Drama Groups brought fame to the parish and back in the late 80’s there was a Boxing Club in Asdee.

I was very nervous compiling my first column but as the weeks went bye I got into the swing of things.

Exiles of the parish were tuning into the notes every week as well as local people living in other parts of the country.

They looked forward to the Notes every week and at a time when very few people had landline phones it was their only way of keeping in touch with what was happening at home.

The key to thrive as a Newspaper correspondent is to socialise frequently keep an ear out for local gossip and have a notebook and a pencil in your pocket.

It was very important to have a pencil in the pocket as often biros had a habit of letting you down when they went out of ink.

I rarely forgot my notebook when I was going out for a few pints

But from time to time I committed the cardinal sin of leaving my pencil at home but I always came up with a plan in the case of emergencies.

I have jotted news items on the back of a Players Number 6 Box (I gave up the cigs in late 1982 one of the best things I ever done), or a beer mat was also a good substitute.

In the early days I got some great stories at my local watering hole Jesse James Tavern on a Sunday night.

I always tried to adopt a lighthearted approach and I always sought stories of a humorous nature from time to time as they always went down very well with the local community.

It was always great to compile a news item that would produce a smile on a readers face knowing that it would be a big topic of conversation in the local community for the rest of the week.

I might not have too much to write about some weeks but after spending a few hours on the high stool many a good story was revealed.

The readership of the Notes spiralled out of all proportions back in 1985 when it was reported that the Statues at St Mary’s Church in Asdee were seen moving.

Thousands of people from all over the country flooded into the village for a 6 week period with TV Crews and journalists camped in the village.

I compiled a lot of material regarding what transpired and now the column was read all over the county and beyond.

There was always going to be a sporting theme in the notes with strong soccer and GAA Clubs in the parish and I would have to make special mention to Jack Hennessy the PRO of the local GAA Club journeying from Ballybunion to my house every Sunday night on his motorbike wind rain or snow with his weekly GAA notes.

Another man who tuned in regularly was the late Mick Sheehan of Beale Hill who provided some great old GAA stories from his big archive collection.

If there was something in the Notes that some people didn’t like it was always a bone of contention in the days after the paper was published but that only happened rarely.

Of course there is always a rotten egg in the bunch and I was sent a couple of anonymous letters but they were quickly disposed of in the fire place.

Of course now the way media is presented has made huge advances in the mid 90’s and I had to keep in touch with the big changes that took place the most important change was the birth of information technology.

Initially the Notes were concluded on Sunday night and then they were posted off to The Kerryman on Monday morning.

While the Notes were despatched mostly by mail in the early days an odd time they got lost in the Bermuda Triangle and I was kept busy during these times with people asking why the notes were not published..

There was always a bit of a problem with bank holiday Mondays as the copy had to be taken to the Kerryman by friends that I relied on.

A breakthrough came in the early 90’s with the arrival of the Fax Machine.

This was very handy bit of kit as the stuff could be sent directly to The Kerryman and typists were at hand to type them out.

Of course problems did arise from time to time with pages of fax messages going missing.

Of course the biggest change came with the arrival of the computer and I invested in one in 1995 and never looked back since.

Now exiles can tune into the notes digitally all over the world at the flick of a button which literally brings the paper into a mobile phone tablet or desktop.

A lot has happened in the local community over the past 4 decades and media has evolved enormously from the day of writing stuff in a notebook to the emergence of new technology and that revolutionised everything.

New Digital Versions of papers are the in thing now and readers can tune in all over the world as soon as the paper is published.

While this new trend is growing there is a lot of people out there that are not computer literate and would rather have the paper in their hands to read it and they will continue to be accommodated.

From time to time some people were not too economical with the truth forwarding information to me and consequently a juicy story was never far away but at times had to be taken with a pinch of salt from time to time.

One thing that troubled me over the years was the demise of the Handball Alley in the village. The area produced some great handballers and it was a shame that it is now beyond repair.

The closure of The Store Bar, Jesse James Tavern, Kennedy’s and Kissane’s and the local Post Office could never have been forseen and these changes bit into the social life of residents of the area and was an unwelcome development that affected more senior members of the community.

We were well served by local grocery shops over the years with Tommy Walsh’s Kennedys, Fitzgeralds, Mike Walsh’s in village, The Store, O Sullivans and Ferris up Larha. Kissanes and Jessies also sold groceries at one time it was also a butcher’s shop.

Now John Pius Walsh and his daughter Marie Alice are keeping the local family shop running and it is providing a great service to the local community at a time when big Supermarkets are dominating everything,.

While I have a lot of fond memories to look back on there are sad ones also with some fantastic characters gone on to their eternal rewards some long before their time.

It is a great pity there was not videos back in the old days as the area had some great characters who were the life and soul of the local community.

If there was a secret camera at The Store or at Jesse James Tavern they would have some great stories to reveal.

Now you can send messages talk face to face at the flick of a keyboard to any place in the planet and the communication happens instantaneously.

It is great to see people taking such pride in the village in recent years with a great 10 year programme in place to enhance it going into the future.

The older generations over the past 4 decades would never in their wildest imagination expect to see the arrival of divorce same sex marriages, or clerical abuse.

I don’t know what the future holds for this type of column but I am fairly sure that it is a part of the life of the community and the first part of the paper that residents go to every week are the notes.

Admitedly it does not have the same appeal for the younger generation as they are too busy on their mobile phones, Tablets and laptops but there are still a lot of people that read The Kerryman every week.

The late Jerry Bunyan went out every night for a couple of pints but he always stayed at home on Wednesday nights to read The Kerrynan and he read it cover to cover.

Everyone fondly remembers the annual Lord Mayor of Asdee competition which was run by the Asdee Rovers Soccer club during the 80’s and early 90’s.

It was their big fund raiser and it created great interest by the community at large.

Three competitors took part every year selling tickets and the person wo sold the most tickets was declared the winner.

There was Intense rivalry between the contestants and the various contestants called to all pubs in North Kerry and West Limerick.

The new celebrity was crowned at The Store and was always packed to the capacity for the big event.

Each contestant had their own campaign plan and the competitor that sold the most tickets were declared the winner and was crowned with their chain of office.

The first Lord Mayor of Asdee was Jack Hennessy last was Donie Finucane first.

The male dominated event had to make way for the ladies with Ann Costello becoming the first female Lord Mayor.

Unfortunately it began to get very difficult to get people to take part in the fund raiser and the event was discontinued in the early 90’s.

The main sporing places for youngsters during the 1980’s was the school field and it became really famous for staging the annual 5 a side League.

There was no age barrier for entering the competition and the final always a big crowd of spectators.

The big sporting achievements included Asdee Rovers winning the Munster Final of the Munster Junior Cup a game that was staged at their famous pitch in Ballynoneen.

Another big sporting event was the official opening of Jack Walsh Park in Tullahinell

After a down turn in the economy in the mid 80’s work was very scarce and consequently there was a major exodus of young people from the area most of whom went to the United States.

The local community were concerned with the demise of the local handball alley.

This was the recreational facility at the disposal of the youth of the area and they spent a considerable amount of their spare time playing handball every evening and at the weekends.

At this time also the local hall was at the heart of the local community and a lot of social functions were held there over the years.

Everyone fondly remember the Asdee Races and the Asdee Festival which created a great buzz in the village

It would be interesting to know how the people of the early 80’s would greet the arrival the mobile phone as well as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and Ticktok.

I am moving close to the twilight of my writing career but I have enjoyed it enormously and will miss it greatly when I hang up my pen, pencil, notebook and keyboard as it will leave a big hole in my lifestyle.

I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the Notes over the past 40 years without their help and encouragement the notes would have fell by the wayside many years ago.

I remember a short time before my Dad died he said to me “Life is like a Dream” and he was 80 years old.

I think it is the same old story for me with the past 4 decades distant memories now and I find it extremely difficult to take in how this big period of time has gone by so quickly.

While we are always told that life is for the living and we should live life to the full the computer in our heads will always remind us of our past and that will never change.

What the future holds nobody knows but I am fairly sure The Kerryman will still be thriving going into the future.

News items in this column often created big conversations on the high stools with everyone putting their own spin on articles but when was all was said people were thankful that they had a topic of conversation that they could dwell on and add to from time to time.

Obituaries were the most popular articles that I have written and I always tried to pay tribute to people who made a big contribution to the community they lived in.

It was nice when bereaved families phoned me up and extended their thanks to me. While I never sought gratitude for what I compiled getting appreciation from bereaved families made the effort I made very worthwhile.

My role aways was to be the voice of the people of the community and my main focus was to write articles about people who done the parish proud in whatever capacity it was.

Of course achievements by local people and local organisations was always top of my priority list.

If anyone is interested in having a look back on issues of the paper now copies of the newspaper are available at libraries.

Statue of Hollywood star Maureen O’Hara removed from West Cork village after just 48 hours on public display

A statue honouring Hollywood legend Maureen O’Hara in West Cork has been removed after just 48 hours on public display because people felt it didn’t look like her enough.

Locals of West Cork village Glengarriff were outraged that the bronze sculpture did the actress “a disservice” and felt it hardly resembled her.

Over 1,000 people posted online expressing their horror and outrage at the work of art, the Irish Mirror reports.

Centenary of his birth

Nigel Kneale was born the same year the BBC launched – and it was there that he found the first outlet for his considerable talents, especially when paired with producer-director Rudolph Cartier. They collaborated on a number of landmark dramas and were credited with creating (or at least defining) adult drama on British TV. Kneale’s forte was delivering tense thrillers, often with a sci-fi or horror slant, which enthralled and terrified viewers and also brought him to the attention of Hammer Film Studios. When they adapted his first Quatermass serial for the big screen the film’s success convinced them to pursue other dark-themed projects, and the Hammer Horror brand became globally famous. This season, in conjunction with Picturehouse, marks the centenary of a visionary whose writing influenced the likes of John Carpenter, Stephen King and Ben Wheatley.

In Australia’s far north, on a remote stretch of coastline along the isolated southern shore of the Gulf of Carpentaria, is Burketown (population 238).

At the tail-end of the Dry, just before the transition into the Wet, Burketown becomes the scene for one of the most remarkable natural phenomena in Australia: the Morning Glory, an immense and rare formation of tube-shaped clouds that has long drawn curious crowds and dedicated storm chasers.

Forming out over the tropical seas of the Gulf at a point where two wind systems collide, the Morning Glory takes shape at night when onshore air cools and slips beneath layers of warm air. The result is a turbulent formation of cylindrical roll or wave clouds in fronts hundreds of kilometres long. Although this dramatic and photogenic weather event occasionally occurs elsewhere in the world, including the Gulf of Mexico, Burketown is the only place on Earth where it happens on a regular basis, thanks to a unique mix of geography and local climate systems.

But, the most ingenious Lenten dodge of all comes from the Irishman who moves into a tiny hamlet in County Kerry. He walks into the pub and promptly orders three beers.

The barman raises his eyebrows, but serves the man three beers, which he drinks quietly at a table, alone.

An hour later, the man has finished the three beers and orders three more. This happens yet again.

The next evening the man again orders and drinks three beers at a time, several times. Soon the entire town is whispering about the Man Who Orders Three Beers.

JOKES

And who said romance was dead? Proposing to his girlfriend on St Patrick�s Day, Irishman O�Malley gave her a ring with a synthetic diamond. The excited young lass showed it to her father, a jeweller. He took one look at it and saw it wasn�t real.

The young lass, on learning the diamond wasn�t real, returned to her future husband. She protested vehemently about his cheapness.

�It was in honour of St Patrick�s Day,� he smiled. �I gave you a sham rock.�

And here are the staples of many jokes: An Englishman, a Scotsman and an Irishman were without tickets for the opening ceremonies of the summer Olympics but hoped to be able to talk their way in at the gate. But security was tight, and each of their attempts was met with a stern refusal.

While wandering around outside the stadium, the Englishman came upon a construction site, which gave him an idea. Grabbing a length of scaffolding, he presented himself at the gate and said: �Johnson, the pole vault�, and was admitted.

    Nigeria’s criminal code prohibits accusing, or even threatening to accuse, someone of being a witch. The Child Rights Act of 2003 makes it a criminal offence to subject any child to physical or emotional torture or submit them to any inhuman or degrading treatment.

Akwa Ibom officials have incorporated the Child Rights Act in an attempt to reduce child abuse. In addition, the state adopted a law in 2008 that makes witch profiling punishable by a prison term of up to 10 years.

Father Akpankpa said criminalising injustices toward children was a step in the right direction.

“A lot of children were labelled witches and victimised. We used to have baby factories where young women are kept; they give birth and their babies are taken and sold out for monetary gains,” he told CNS.

And we must not overlook this fact. The “trans movement” is not a grassroots movement in any way, shape or form. This should be perfectly obvious to anyone paying attention. Rich and powerful people are financing and promoting the transgender craze. Both the Stryker family and the Pritzker family have ties to the “medical industrial complex.” They have invested literally millions of dollars promoting the gender ideology, including establishing children’s “gender clinics.” A person who attempts to live as the opposite sex will necessarily be a lifetime customer for continual medical interventions.

3rd Sunday of Easter, 1st May 2022.

Dear Parishioner,

On this day, five years ago, the sad news of the death of Fr.

Pat Moore reached the ears of many people. (May 2 2017.) One cannot say that it was

unexpected, as he had suffered from oesophagal cancer for a lengthy period

before that. Fr. Pat was known far and wide, throughout the diocese and

further afield. A factor in his being seen and known all over the diocese

was that he was what was known as the Diocesan Examiner – the priest

who visited the primary schools of the diocese. When Fr. Pat was ordained

in 1982, I had spent the most part of a year in Kenya and after my return to

Ireland in the summer of 1987, I spent the months until a short time before

Christmas, doing a renewal course in Dublin.

After returning to the diocese, I probably met him at one of our diocesan

meetings, or on some other occasion between the start of 1988 and August

of that year, when I took up an appointment as a curate in Killarney Parish.

Fr. Bill Murphy (now our retired bishop) had been living with Fr. Pat in a

diocesan house in Ballycasheen. When he moved to the Presbytery in New

Street as Administrator of the Cathedral, I took up residence in his place.

We were to be together in Ballycasheen until the summer of 1993, when I

was transferred to Rathmore Parish. I did not expect that we would be

working in the one parish, but not living in the same house, when, in the

summer of 1994, Fr. Pat was also appointed to Rathmore Parish. I had

spent a year living in Knocknagree and he took up residence in the

Presbytery in Gneeveguilla. I left him in the parish, when I headed back to

Kenya, after a ten year stay in the diocese, in September 1997.

While many people were aware of the sickness that led to Fr. Pat’s death,

his earlier sickness, while in Rathmore Parish, might not be as well known.

Everybody who knew him was saddened, when they saw that, for some time

after returning from his stay in a big London Hospital, it took some time

before he got back to walking in a fairly normal way. What I recall about that

time is how upbeat he was about the future and how he took up walking

again but not as vigorously as he had been doing, before he became unwell.

On his fifth anniversary, I thank God for the privilege of knowing a man of

charisma, courage and strong faith. (Fr. Denis O’Mahony

Struggles of Faith

Essays by Fr. Michael Paul Gallagher (Columba Press 1991)

Coming back to Ireland, from the poor world, highlighted for me the sheer

materialism of our environment and the fact that, since the boom of the

sixties, affluence has created a completely different context of values and

lifestyles, different even from the fifties. Economics has quietly but

inevitably replaced religion as the dominant value in Irish society. This

social change has created a new context, not openly at war with Christianity,

but in fact, hostile to the survival of real faith. Our social context for the

future is one where, increasingly, greed and envy will be valued and

cultivated in glossy forms. In this world, the danger is that religion will be

reduced to a minor leisure-time activity, a convention retained but, only

on the margins of life, something devoid of challenge or depth………………..

Of course, the key question for the future of faith is not minimum external

convention but some level of conviction and maturity. The older patterns of

quasi-universal religious practice, still found in rural areas, can involve a

certain degree of social conformism. When that conformism loses its power,

as it has done for younger and urbanised families, a quite different pastoral

approach is called for. Irish Catholics seem to be over-sacramentalised and

under-evangelised. Sacramental attendance is experienced by many as a

matter of obedience or duty, rather than as a spiritual nourishment or

meeting with the Lord……………………………………………………………………………..

Putting it very simply, there seem to be three main thrusts of renewal in the

worldwide Church today, and these three could have a special application in

the unique situation of Ireland: spiritual renewal, small support groups and

social commitment. As against these new potentials, one can discern three

new dangers, three forms of lapsing from religion: apathy, alienation and

anger. Apathy is a form of socio-cultural loss of faith. It is largely passive;

it stems from a new environment dominated by money-values and this, in

turn, results in a dull indifference to the spiritual dimension of life.

Alienation by comparison with apathy is more agitated or troubled in mind

and conscience. It is less a form of drifting than a definite disappointment

with institutional life within the Church. It often arises from precise sources

of dissatisfaction with conventional religion and with the priests and

religious who are viewed as embodiments of this convention. The third

umbrella term to describe loss of faith is ‘anger’. This is at the opposite end

of the spectrum from apathy in that it is much more active, conscious,

chosen and ideological in its stance. Apathy is a danger for large number of

people, whereas alienation affects, mainly, the more searching and the

more educated, an increasing proportion in Irish society……………………………

If the Irish Church can read the strengths and dangers of the present faith

situation, and can give courageous priority to the new pastoral needs, then

a certain guarded optimism about the future is well justified. Innovation has

always been a hallmark of Irish missionaries abroad: it is a question of the

same missionary zeal and adventure being brought to bear on the local

situation. The causes of lessening of practice and belief lie in two directions

– both the inevitabilities of the age and in the human failures of ourselves

as witnesses of the Gospel. Just as EEC (In 1991 we were familiar with

European Economic Community, now known more simply as the EU –

European Union.) regulations slowly eroded our freedom on fisheries, so

also many large forces in our western world erode our freedom as fishers of

faith. However, within our own hands is the question of the trawlers and

nets we use within our waters. As fishers of faith, we may be less free than

we were but more free than we know. (M.P.G.)

What you have been reading are some random passages from Fr. Michael

Paul Gallagher’s book. You might have noted at the top of the other page

that the book of essays was published in 1991. Most of us will find it hard

to remember 1991, unless something memorable happened in our

individual or family life or, if we are the kind of people who can remember a

great variety of things from times past. (As I write this, I cannot recall

whether or not Kerry were in the All-Ireland. Some ‘Dear Parishioner’ reader

might want to say to me, ‘Surely you can remember who played in the final

that year and who got the Sam Maguire Cup!)

I will pick one sentence from the paragraph beginning ‘If the Irish Church

can read the strengths and dangers of the present faith situation and can

give courageous priority to the new pastoral needs, then a certain guarded

optimism about the future is well justified!’ Did that reading of the present

‘strengths and dangers’ happen? If it did happen, it didn’t happen in a very

significant way! If it had happened as expressed in Michael Paul Gallaghers

‘hoped-for-happening’, would the face of the Irish Church be different

today? I think that is a question that does not have a clear answer. (D.O’M)

Seeing Your Life Through The Lens Of The Gospel John Byrne

1.The disciples spend a fruitless night fishing and catching nothing. Things

change dramatically when Jesus appears and invites them to try again.

Remember those who came to you and encouraged you to try again when

you felt discouraged. Perhaps, on some of these occasions the results were

beyond your expectations.

2.Some people view the synodal process proposed by Pope Francis as a futile

exercise, and others see it as an opportunity of renewal and growth. What

have you seen or heard that encourages you to engage in the process?

3.The story can serve as a reminder that, sometimes, we are wasting our

time if we try to work on our own without the Lord’s help. When have you

found that your work or life was more fruitful when you acknowledged that

you needed God’s help and you spoke to God about your needs?

4.Peter is given the chance to be reconciled with the Master after his denial

during the Passion. Remember those who gave you an opportunity for

reconciliation after you hurt or let them down. What was it like to be given

this chance? To whom have you offered the possibility of reconciliation?

Points to Ponder (Pope Francis in Bulgaria, 5th May 2019)

It is the very moment of Peter’s failure that Jesus appears, starts over,

patiently comes to him and calls him ‘Simon’ (v15) – the name Peter received

when he was first called. The Lord does not wait for perfect situations of

frames of mind: he creates them. He does not expect to encounter people

without problems, disappointments, without sin or limitations. He himself

confronted sins and disappointment in order to encourage all men and

women to persevere. Brothers and sisters, the Lord never tires of calling

us. He is the power of love that overturns every expectation and is always

ready to start anew. In Jesus, God always offers us another chance. He

calls us day by day to deepen our love for him and to be revived by his eternal

newness. Every morning, he comes to find us where we are. He summons

us ‘to rise at his word, to look up and realise we were made for heaven, not

for earth, for the heights of life and not for the depths of death’, and to stop

seeking ‘the living among the dead’. When we welcome him, we rise higher

and are able to embrace a brighter future, not as a possibility but as a reality.

When Jesus’ call directs our lives, our hearts grow young. Intercon.

For Fr Kevin

The Good Shepherd

In Jesus’ time, being a shepherd was not a pleasant job. Sheep became easily lost and the shepherd’s job was to guide them back to safety. There were many dangers and the sheep were totally dependent on the shepherd. Shepherds would round up their sheep in the evening and guide them into their pen. But it had no gate, so the shepherd would lie across the space in case the sheep were attacked at night. The shepherds literally lay down their lives for their flock. John compares the sacrifice of the shepherd to the ‘hired hand’ who is not really committed to the flock. He does what he has to but flees at the first sign of trouble.

This Good Shepherd Sunday the Gospel describes Jesus as the ‘genuine’ Shepherd who wants a personal relationship with each one of us and who would lay down his life for us. The Gospel emphasises the importance of relationship as the shepherd knows his flock and cares for them. They ‘follow Him’ and it is not a Facebook or Twitter type of following, rather it is a genuine relationship. Everyone matters to the Good Shepherd, regardless of their situations. We are told ‘I know my own and my own know me’. We are called today to follow Jesus in a more personal more intimate way. Even when we stray off the path and get lost, it is then especially that the Good Shepherd comes looking for us.

———————————

HEARING GOD’S VOICE In today’s Gospel Jesus was drawing on a well

-known image at the time of a shepherd calling his sheep. We might not

have the same familiarity with what He means, but even today in Israel

you will find different flocks pasturing together in a sheep fold or

scattered throughout the hills, but when their own shepherd calls them

they respond to him and follow. It’s incredible to see! How can they know

his particular voice? They know their shepherd because they trust him;

he provides for them, cares for them, keeps them safe from harm. In fact,

he protects him with his own life if necessary, facing down threats like

wolves and thieves for their sake. Jesus is the Good Shepherd – He

doesn’t give Himself that title in this Gospel passage, but elsewhere.

That makes us, as baptised Christians, His sheep. But a really important

question for us to ask is not just “do we listen to His voice?” but rather,

since we have free will, “do we want to listen to His voice?” Do we

believe that Jesus knows what is best for us? Do we trust that He will

always provide? Do we turn to Him for help and advice? Are we

drowning out His voice with other noise or voice?

This is an interview I carried out with John Moriarty in 2001. It was originally written for the killareny.ie website, which I ran at the time and which is now defunct. I met John in Killarney and later drove him to his home on the side of Mangerton Mountain. He wrote nine books, most of them huge ponderous things but which carry you along. John died in 2007 from cancer.

Dillon, Kevin

December 09, 1994

Across The Cork/Kerry County Border With KEVIN DILLON Few rivalries in gaelic football are as passionate, intense and last but not least healthy as that which exists betweens the gaels of Cork and Kerry. Those fortunate enough to be born in either camp exude a pride in their pedigree which is hardly equalled or surpassed in any other part of the country. For a player to have been able to keep a foot in both camps, enjoy and wallow in the good times shared by both tribes was indeed fortunate. Kerry native and former Cork star Kevin Dillon was one such player. Born and reared in the rabid football territory that is Duagh in north Kerry, the young Dillon had his choice of sporting icons from which to pick his hero from. Before he could kick a ball in anger the likes of Dan McAuliffe thrilled all and sundry in the locality and beyond with his classy performances for the Kingdom. Ironically it was for Kerry’s archrivals that McAuliffe’s neighbour would play out of his skin. McAuliffe, the All-Ireland medal winner was in good company at Duagh too. The fifties was a very successful decade for the home club of big Don Kevin Dillon and their ilk. The club was the top club in north Kerry for quite a period and put north Kerry championship titles back to back in the mid-fifties. It was at the latter end of Duagh’s purple period that the teenage Dillon entered the adult fray and remembers listening to the commentary of the 1955 All-Ireland Senior final in which three Duagh clubmen were included with the Kerry team which beat the Kevin Heffernan, Ollie Freaney powered Dubs. The Dillon family of Duagh contributed five fine footballers to the area. Kevin was one of them. One of his older brothers Dialmuid was another and was a substitute on that self-same Kerry team of 55. Meanwhile, Paul Dillon was Kerry’s centre-half back on the Kerry Junior team in 1954 which went on to win the All-Ireland title. A clerical student at the time, unfortunately Paul was unable to take his place in the final line-up because of Church rules. Other brother Pat also went on to star for Kerry Juniors as a tigerish defender. The fifth brother Matt was a regular on the Duagh team and a fine player too. For a brief period all five Dillon brothers lined out together for Duagh in the north Kerry divisional league. Unfortunately a combination of injuries, migration etc served to break the Dillon connection with the Duagh team all too quickly for the liking of connoisseurs of football in the area. A graduate of Rockwell College in Tipperary, Kevin Dillon was a lover of all sports as a teenager but excelled principally at rugby and gaelic football. His fondness for both games got him in hot water though during the reign of the infamous Ban however. For the last two years he spent in College he was suspended from playing gaelic games because of his penchant for playing out half and scrum half with the newly-formed Abbeyfeale rugby team. “I remember being notified by the County Board for playing rugby for Abbeyfeale and getting suspended for twelve months from the date of the last game. Every time I kept playing rugby I just added to my suspension. I felt very strongly about the Ban and fought to have it removed at every opportunity.” The Duagh born former star footballer eventually made his way as a twenty year old to work in the agricultural field in Clonakilty, an area equally steeped in GAA tradition. “Clonakilty had a very good team back then and being able to play football made a blow-in to Clonakilty very welcome. We should have won the county championship but unfortunately we never did. It was a well balanced team but it had its fair quote of exceptional players such as Tommy Connolly who played with Cork and Kildare, Harry de Long who was a great club footballer and the Hayes brothers Flor and Tim F, both of whom had amazing all-round ability.” Playing for Clonakilty led to Kevin being selected for the Cork Juniors in ’65: “I remember being asked by county selector Eamonn Young as to whether or not I minded playing against my native Kerry. All I ever wanted to do was play football though so I jumped at the chance of lining out for Cork. Even though we lost to them in ’65, it wasn’t long after that I got promoted to the Senior team.” Generally a tigerish half-back with Clonakilty but the type of athlete who flourished amidst the wide open space afforded him at midfield, Kevin Dillon was a five foot eight inch, eleven and a half stone terrier who could run all day but it was just as well for the Kerry born former Cork star recalls being charged with marking speedsters like Galway half-forward Seamus Leydon. “My small physique left me at an awful disadvantage but I could run forever. I needed to because I was up against some great footballers. Unfortunately I became overly negative in my play and because too much of a man to man marker which meant I was out of the action for long periods of the game which, to be honest, slightly lessened my enjoyment of the game. Some of the great wing forwards I played on at that time are Derry and Thorney O’Shea, Brendan Lynch of Kerry, Galway’s Cyril Dunne and Seamus Leydon, Joe Corcoran Of Mayo, Meath’s Tony Brennan, whom I played on in the 1967 All-Ireland, Jackie Donnelly of Kildare – all players of exceptional skill and vision and a bit ahead of their time as were my old Clonakilty clubmates Flor Hayes and Pat Griffin. The ball was not played as they would have liked it, which made it easier for backs to mark them.” Despite putting in fifteen years of loyal service with Clonakilty, Kevin Dillon found himself with nothing to show for his efforts in terms of silverware. In 1968 he both trained and captained the Clonakilty side which lost the county final to Carbery that year after a replay. “We were the only Senior team in west Cork at that time and we had a great team spirit, better than what most of the divisional teams had at least. We were unlucky in the replay though because it was only a great goal by Donal Hunt which separated us in the end,” explained the man who trained the last Clonakilty side which reached the county final. Carbery at that time included Castlehaven an O’Donovan Rossas and many other clubs which now have their own Senior team. Married to Maria, Kevin’s family have all inherited his love of sport. His son Terry regularly lines out with Highfield Rugby Football Club in the Centre while his Clonakilty outings see him togging out on the forty for his beloved Clonakilty . Reflecting back on his days in the county colours with Cork, Kevin recalls the joy of playing with the county Seniors for a four year period between 1964 and ’69. The joy of it all comes flooding back to him in waves of nostalgia. “We had a well-balanced team with tremendous team spirit and comraderie. Many of those friendships are still intact today”. Executive Secretary of the Irish Holstein Freisian Society, a full-time job which sees him based in Clonakilty, Kevin Dillon’s business involves him running the pedigree section of the Black & White breed which produce 99% of the milk we drink here within the Society and he loves every minute of it. Still the game he graced in the deepest south excites him like nothing else. “One of the greatest memories I have of my time playing gaelic football was when I was playing with Cork Seniors. We beat Kerry in two Munster finals in a row, in 1966 and ’67 which was unheard of at the time. In fact I think we were the first Cork team to achieve that distinction,” Kevin added. But just how good were the Cork teams of ’66 and ’67? The team’s ace defender goes for the jackpot. “The Cork team of ’66 could and should have one the Sam Maguire Cup. There was definitely an All-Ireland title in that squad but we were beaten by a great Galway team in the All-Ireland semi-final which included the likes of Enda Colleran, Noel Tierney and the Donnellan brothers and a host of other really exceptional players including of course Seamus Leydon. That Galway team was possibly the best team I ever played against. They must have been one of the best football teams ever.” Kevin disappeared off the county scene when is free time was curtailed by the purchase of a small farm in 1968. Reflecting back on Clonakilty’s failure to make the breakthrough in his day, Kevin is remarkably philosophical about the conspicuous absence of silverware. “It was naturally disappointing. Maybe we stick too much and too long to the old traditional catch and kick type game. Pat Griffin was one of the best players I played with but his style of play wasn’t adopted by the club for a long time. Dave McCarthy was another great Clonakilty stalwart at the this point in time also, small but great hearted and superbly fit, who had a tremendous work rate which justifiably earned him an All-Star.” Still living in the GAA heartland of Clonakilty, Kevin Dillon has a bank-full of memories. Memories of one of the most talented players he ever played with, Eoin O’Mahony, are there too. “He was a special footballer with Clonakilty and the county team but he never fulfilled his potential unfortunately.” Clonakilty at present are going through a lean period at Senior level but tremendous work is being done at underage and this year’s all-conquering Under 14 team has some great prospects. Having won seven county Championships in the 40s the club has a proud past. Another one is well overdue and anything would give Clonakilty people, particularly Kevin Dillon, more pleasure.

May 2022 from  DFLA site

By Ayaana Williams | ABC 10

Fires are burning more frequently and at a greater intensity than ever before in the American River Parkway area, according to a new report from an environmental group.

A report from April 2022 by the Sacramento Sierra Club says that in six years, the Sacramento Fire Department responded to 536 fires along the parkway. The number of fires in the region increased rapidly in recent years, up to 156 in 2021 – three times as many as in 2019.

29 April 2022

Today we celebrate DFLA’s incredible Executive Director!

Hello!

So…I probably shouldn’t have done this, but our Board gave me the 👍

Today is a special day.

It’s the anniversary of Kristen Day’s birthday, the Best Boss and the Fearless Leader of the Whole Life movement!

I won’t lie. I have never seen anyone work harder than Kristen. She works countless hours and absorbs all kinds of stress to build this organization of grassroots supporters like you. She’s truly one of a kind!

Can you help us celebrate?

I know she’s watching every penny that comes in and out of this organization so I’d like today to be special — with a $2,200 birthday money bomb!

Will you contribute to honor this Whole Life hero TODAY?

She treasures each and every one of you, and she loves this movement.

For me personally, she has been an inspiration for so long. Now, I have the privilege of working with and learning from her every day.

I’m lucky to be one of the many young people who have such an excellent mentor in Kristen. She’s raising up the next generation of pro-life Democrats!

Let’s, together, make this a special day for her!

I don’t have much, but I’m getting us started with a $50 donation (plus me and the team are taking her to lunch later)

For a Special Day for Kristen Day,

John Quinn

Fast Horses and Eugenics

By Livia Gershon

The breeding of race horses validated those aspiring to belong to an American elite while feeding into racist beliefs about genetic inheritance.

———————————————-

SANDERS: Bernie Sanders put out this tweet:

“Congress must pass legislation that codifies Roe v. Wade as the law of the land in this country NOW. And if there aren’t 60 votes in the Senate to do it, and there are not, we must end the filibuster to pass it with 50 votes.”

===========================

Ego Eimi

Throughout the Easter season, the Church highlights how Christ manifested his divinity throughout his life. In today’s Gospel, we recognize Christ’s words “It is I,” or “I am,” call back to the divine identity revealed to Moses. Thus, in this reading, Christ identifies himself as the living God.

The Christian Response

As portrayed in the Book of Revelation, the risen Christ has all glory and honor. Indeed, through his Paschal Mystery, he demonstrated the unending power and love of God. In response, let’s embody the joy of Psalm 30 and imitate the eager discipleship of St. Peter!

St. Stephen, traditionally known as the Holy Protomartyr, models the zeal of a disciple. Despite the backlash he receives, the Saint’s hope and trust in the Lord isn’t shaken. Up until his last moments, Stephen joyfully proclaims Christ as the fulfillment of Israel’s scriptures.

The Life of the Church

As the Sanhedrin schemed against the Christians, Gamaliel spoke up. He reminded them that human institutions crumble on their own. If God established Christianity, however, it will not fall, regardless of what it faces. This lesson is especially important today. Let’s have certainty that God preserves his Church even in the midst of scandal.

Christian Charity

In the Acts of the Apostles, we meet a Christian named Tabitha, a holy woman who made clothes for the poor. Moved by her charity, Peter prayed that Tabitha would be raised from the dead—and raised she was. Like Tabitha, let’s strive to use our talents for others. In doing so, we open ourselves up to eternal life with Christ.

Zeal for the Eucharist

The First Reading tells us about St. Paul’s conversion. Aided by Stephen’s prayer, Paul stopped persecuting the Church and became a fiery Apostle of Christ. Then, in the Gospel, Christ reveals that we are called to share in his glorification. To achieve that end, we must devote ourselves to him in the Eucharist, our spiritual food!

————–

Adam and Jesus

The Eucharist is our spiritual sustenance because it flows from the power of the crucified and risen Lord. Moreover, in the Eucharist, we find a response to the Fall. While Adam ushered in death through the forbidden fruit, the Eucharist, given by the New Adam, brings life.

The Pilgrim’s Food

In the First Reading, we hear about the persecution of the early Church. Christianity was spreading so fast among both Jews and Gentiles that opponents had to resort to violence. Then, in the Gospel, Christ reveals that he is the Bread of Life. Indeed, Jesus brings us into his eternal life every time we receive the Eucharist.

The Relationship of Love

We are indebted to St. Philip for asking to see the Father. In response to that question, Jesus revealed that he is the revelation of the Father. Indeed, through Christ, God shows us that he is a tripersonal relationship of Love. Today, let’s ponder this inexhaustible mystery!

==========================

In September 2020, the Academy kicked off a two-year endeavor to digitize a portion of its iconic bird, mammal, and reptile collection from the Galapagos, much of which comes from the 1905-1906 expedition. Consisting of 78,000 biological specimens, it’s the largest amassing from the Galápagos on the planet. It includes Darwin’s finches, a large variety of aquatic lizards, and more than 260 preserved giant tortoises. At the time collecting these specimens was both normal and legal, though Bell says that’s no longer the case. “Basically, the islands are now a living museum,” says Bell, protected in part by the Ecuadorian government’s Special Law of Galápagos. “It’s difficult even securing research permits to go there.”

St Bat’s Well 17 – 11 – ’38

St Bat’s well was one time in Mac Elligott’s land, in Coolard. One dry Summer some woman used the water to wash clothes. The well dried up and removed to Tom Dowlings land, where it is now. It is also said that another woman used it to boil potatoes and if they were down since, they would not boil.

Location: Lisselton, Co. Kerry.

HOLY WELL: St Bartholomew’s Well, Coolard, Lisselton

Collector  Nancy Hanrahan-Informant-  Michael Hanrahan, Age   60

The blessed well is situated in a thick wood near Coolard. The well is shallow and a stream of fresh water flows from it. Many people in the district visit the well three times a year, to pay rounds. They go around the well nine times and they say three rosaries. If they have not the rosaries finished when going around, they kneel by the well and finish them. When they are going home they leave money or holy pictures or pieces of cloth on the tree beside the well. Anyone having sores washes them in the water. They also take three sips of the water and also some water with them. The people living near the well use the water for household purposes. It is said that the well was situated farther up on the wood once. A woman washed clothes in it. Then it moved down to where it is at the present time.

Global warming: why you should not worry

Comment

Skip Rocker

3 years ago

The USA,  was covered in a glacial sheet of ice across our Northern borders 10,000 years ago.  The ice for some reason melted and receded to the north. Those glaciers carved out our Great lakes and their melting filled them with trillions of gallons of fresh water. So the real conundrum is, what made them melt? Who was burning all the fossil fuels that heated up the planet? Or,  can we assume these events are cyclical?

Third Sunday after Easter

 8th May  2022

Dear Friends of Sacred Heart Church,

On this Third Sunday after Easter the Introit starts with the words Jubilate Deo ‘Let us shout with joy to God; let us sing a psalm to His name’.

And why all the joy and singing? Because our Lord Jesus Christ has given His life for us and He is risen again!  Alleluia.

The most important thing we can do to ensure that when Christ returns He will find faith on earth, is to encourage the formation of future priests in line with His teaching.

This requires both prayer and financial support. Last week a special collection was taken to benefit the Institute Seminary. I want to take this opportunity to thank you most sincerely for your continued generosity towards this end. We are deeply grateful for your contributions. Please keep our young seminarians in your prayers.

Monsignor Wach, Prior General of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, arrived in Ireland last Tuesday.

This is a pastoral and fatherly visit where he familiarises himself with the growing Irish apostolate.

He has a very busy schedule with several ceremonies and meetings with local authorities. He has visited the Sister Adorers in Ardee and is currently in Belfast with me. Please have a look at the pictures below.

After visiting the Galway apostolate this week he will arrive in Limerick and remain with us for the week-end.

He will be happy to greet all of you after Mass next Sunday when he will come to our shores.

Monsignor Wach will celebrate the 10:30 am Mass and deliver the sermon next Sunday, 15th May. The May Crowning of Our Lady will take place after Mass. It would be great to see many of you present.

A special thank you to Canon Gribbin for being here in Limerick this weekend. This allows me to accompany Monsignor Wach in his meetings. You can listen to the beautiful sermon Canon Gribbin delivered this morning here.

Next Friday is the 13th May, a date of crucial importance in relation to the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima.

An Act of  Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be recited during the Sacred Heart devotions. Please try to attend and consecrate your life to Her.

Abbe Cisneros returned to us on Friday last after a ten day break. Welcome home Abbe. We trust you are well rested and ready for action!’

The Ukrainian effort continues on our corridor with a hive of activity and good will from everyone involved.

We are amazed at the number of volunteers and donations.

May God reward each one for their contribution to such a worthy cause.

Wishing you a blessed Week,

Yours in Christ,

Canon Lebocq

Maria Kelliher  Jim Regan Listowel

One particular classmate of mine in the 1980’s in St. Michael’s would never learn his poems. Mr Molyneaux would patiently help him by saying the lines,  which my classmate would repeat out loud.

the classmate wasn’t making much progress and one day after saying a few lines, Mr Molyneaux calmly said “take yourself out of this classroom”.

my classmate didn’t realise that this line was not a part of the poem and repeated it out as if it were.

the classroom erupted in laughter but Mr Molyneaux maintained his unwavering calm and patience. We have only found memories of this excellent teacher and mentor who was committed to all aspects of our development including our English poetry reciting skills! Sincerest sympathies to all of the Molyneaux family.

My deepest sympathy to my old classmate, Des, and to all the Molyneaux family on the death of John.  He was truly a most inspirational teacher who always felt free to stray beyond the prescribed syllabus in the most interesting of ways.  It was a pleasure to be in his classroom, and forty-five years later, I can still remember so many lessons with fondness and clarity.  He was one of the greats, a credit to Listowel and a credit to St. Michael’s. 

The late Bryan McMahon once said that a good teacher leaves his mark on a parish for three generations.  John certainly did that and more besides.  May he rest in peace.

Michael Landers, Listowel & Rostrevor

Our deepest sympathies to all of the Molyneaux family at this really sad time. John had a brilliant teaching career at St. Michael’s where he helped to educate many generations of Listowel people and put us on a platform for future success. We were thrilled that he joined us at our 40 year reunion in 2018 and he spoke so elegantly and passionately about his years at the College. John gave huge commitment to extracurricular activities in Listowel be it with the GAA or the Supporters Club. His contribution to golf was immense. John was one we all held in high esteem and his hand writing was something we all tried to replicate. John leaves behind a wonderful family who hopefully will get some solace from John’s huge legacy to this world. Níl sé imithe uainn ach imithe romhainn.

Grania Barrett

Sincere sympathy to Georgia, Dan, Henry, Des, Declan and the extended Molyneaux family on the death of their beloved husband, father and grandfather John.

Listowel has lost a most unique gentleman, a brilliant teacher, and its ultimate sports connoisseur. In matters concerning Gaelic Football, Horse Racing, Golf, Athletics, Coursing etc  he was unequaled and he left his distinctive mark on whatever committee that he graced over during his long and fruitful life.

On a personal level I was honored to be his co-editor, along with Fr. Kieran O’Shea when we published the Listowel G.A. A, in 1985.

Once in conversation I asked what was his outstanding sporting memory, his reply surprised me, it was his memory of the first St. Michael’s College team to enter and reach the final of the Kerry Colleges primary football competition. Reaching the final, to face St. Brendan’s,  his team were finally beaten by one point after four matches, the final and three replays with extra time in the final three. He recalled these matches in much detail in the Colleges Centenary book of 1979.

The final third reply took place on March 17th 1957, it was ironic that John’s bereavement took place on March 17th 2022, 65 years to the day of what he remembered as ‘The Unforgettable Final’

Rest well my friend and take your place among the Gods.

R.I.P. John

Liam Anne Kennedy

From múinteoir of Gailf an Chéad Cluiche, Master McGrath agus Peig, to the fairways of Ballybunion, master of his own hound and his storytelling.

In his account of a coup at The Junction of an evening that cost his Listowel entourage dearly, he’d never forgive Vincent O’Brien – Classic, Non-fiction, Tragicomedy, Whodunit, Horror, Thriller, all rolled into one, but certainly no Mystery to an eagle eyed master; solid premise for a Dick Francis chapter and a gamblers prayer type lesson that is eternally lost of course on punters.

Forewarned that ‘backways soccer’ would ruin his GAA nursery enshrined ethos, half a century later his worst fears would be confirmed – walked the talk and taught the walk.

Comhghairdeas on the sportsmanship; to clann agus chairde, comhbhrón on the winning line.

RIP Past Master John

Brendan Hegarty, past pupil St Michael’s
