Thought from Fr. Colm - 5th August

Our prayers are with Sheila and Stewart Hunter on the death their grandson, Jake Morley, whose funeral was this Friday. Well done to Patrick Byrne on celebrating his 70th birthday on Wednesday. The Lunch Club were delighted to host the celebration. Next weeks sees the celebration of some great Saints – St. Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein), Patroness of Europe; St. Dominic, St. Clare, St. Jean Frances de Chantal and St. Laurence. “Once when Edith was visiting Frankfurt Cathedral, a woman entered with a market basket and knelt in one of the pews to pray briefly. This was something entirely new to her, leaving as deep an impression as any university lectures.” (The collected works of Edith Stein, vol.6). Many of you are taking time out either at home or away. I hope you have been able to, especially in these challenging times. I’m away this coming week and I am grateful to Brothers John and Paul for their assistance. Those not going on holiday can take comfort from the following: “I’ve never stayed in a tent or a caravan in my life. I’ve never joined the Boy Scouts. I don’t see the point of going on holiday to enjoy less comfort than I have at home.” Terry Wogan
