In the year that the Dominican Order worldwide is marking the 800th anniversary of its foundation, the Irish province rejoiced this weekend as eight friars were ordained to the priesthood this Saturday 9th July              Archbishop Robert Rivas, a Dominican who serves in the Diocese of Castries in the Caribbean, presided at the ceremony in St Saviour’s Church in Dublin’s Dominick Street.  Archbishop Rivas is part of the Irish Dominican province.  One of the newly ordained Fr. Pat Desmond  OP is from Cork. He grew up in the shadows of St. Mary’s

Those ordained to the priesthood are David McGovern OP,  Damian Polly OP, Ronan Connolly OP,  Pat Desmond OP,  Daragh McNally OP,  Connor McDonagh OP,  Eoin Casey OP and  Kevin O’Reilly OP.

2016 is a special year for the entire Dominican Family as it celebrates the 800th anniversary of the founding of the Order of Friars Preachers.

According to Constantine of Orvieto while St Dominic was praying at the Basilica of St Peter in Rome, he saw the Apostles Peter and Paul approaching him. St Peter handed him a stick, and St Paul a book and said to him, “Go and preach, because you have been chosen by God for this ministry.”

In the opening ceremony for the Dominicans jubilee, these elements of Dominican iconography – the stick, the book and the apostolic mandate – were incorporated in the overall theme for the celebrations: “Sent to preach the Gospel.”

imagesA parable brought to life:   Listeners to Joe Duffy’s Liveline radio programme may have heard the story earlier in the summer of an American tourist who was beaten and robbed of his valuables during a violent mugging in Dublin. Forty-six-year-old Donnie Brown, who was travelling alone on his first holiday in Ireland, was attacked after stopping to ask a woman for directions back to his hostel. The gang held a knife to his throat and stole his wallet, bag, and phone, before leaving him lying bloodied in a lane.  Donnie recalled how he had found help in a local shop and from Gardaí who drove him around the area in the hope of identifying his attackers. However, after his story was aired on the radio, he experienced a real outpouring of kindness. A bed and breakfast owner offered him free accommodation, and he received more than 40 offers of help from all over Ireland, including free use of a rental car. ‘I feel like I’ve won the lottery,’ he said afterwards.      It is extraordinary that such a horrific experience could end with someone feeling so blessed. The man in today’s parable must have felt something similar, to be treated with such generosity, from an unexpected source, after his ordeal. Those who helped Donnie in Dublin didn’t know him or have any reason to help him. Their kindness to a stranger was very much in the spirit of the Good Samaritan we hear about today.

We entrust to you today the destiny of the world and of every man and woman”.

 HN1L-2YEAR OF MERCY    As the Jubilee Year of Mercy continues until November 20th, the Feast of Christ the King, we keep in mind the words of Pope Francis on the first day of the Jubilee:                                                               “This Extraordinary Year is itself a gift of grace.  To pass through the Holy Door means to rediscover the infinite mercy of the Father who welcomes everyone and goes out personally to encounter each of them.  It is he who seeks us!  It is he who comes to encounter us!  This will be a year in which we grow ever more convinced of God’s mercy!  But that is the truth.  We have to put mercy before judgment, and in any event God’s judgement will always be in the light of his mercy.  In passing through the Holy Door, then, may we feel that we ourselves are part of this mystery of love, of tenderness.  Let us set aside all fear and dread, for these do not befit men and women who are loved.  Instead, let us experience the joy of encountering that grace which transforms all things.”

Ordination to Priesthood:  Our Congratulations to Pat Nugent who was ordained to the Priesthood for our Diocese this Saturday June 4th, at the Church of the Real Presence, Curraheen.  Fr. Pat will celebrate his First Mass this Sunday June 5th, in Curraheen at 6pm.  All are invited to this Mass.                                                             Evan O’Brien a clerical student for the Diocese, from the Parish of Mahon, was ordained a Deacon in Maynooth on the Feast of Corpus Christi.  Evin will, God willing, be ordained to the Priesthood next year.

29th May 2016 – Feast of Corpus Christi

The-Body-and-Blood-of-Christ-640x300Corpus Christi
As we celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, or Corpus Christi, we reflect on Jesus’ gift of himself to us in the Eucharist in the Word of God, which we listen to at Mass and read in the Bible, and in the sisters and brothers for whom he died.  It is the same presence, the same Lord.  We are invited to be made one with him through the living bread which comes down from heaven and that unity with Christ will be fruitful to the extent that we are united with the those sisters and brothers.  If we are selective we cut ourselves off to some extent from God, who loves all his children.  So as we celebrate Corpus Christi perhaps we could determine to do something helpful, something good for one person we don’t like that much, or for someone we’re not getting on with too well just now.  As we take a step towards union with Christ in another person, Christ will do wonders for all our relationships with others, and with God.

 Corpus Christi ProcessionMany people have memories of the Corpus Christi imagesprocession when the monstrance with the Blessed Sacrament was brought around the parish. All groups in the parish were represented. Children scattered petals before the host and houses were decorated. The meaning of the feast was to bring the Lord into the streets of his people and to appreciate the gift he gives us of himself in the Eucharist. The procession still takes in our city and this Sunday we gather outside our Church at 2.50 pm to walk to Daunt Square where the ceremonies will take place.
Archbishop Neary of Tuam  will preach. Come and join us.

22nd May 2016 – Trinity Sunday (C)

100672-bigthumbnailHoly Trinity Sunday
The gospel for today tells us that the Spirit of truth will lead us to the complete truth about God. Happily for us the gospel does not say when we will come to the complete truth. Perhaps this is because the evangelist knows full well that the God revealed by Jesus is not just a mystery to be solved. Every generation of Christians must make the effort to see where and how the God who creates, saves and sanctifies is speaking to us.
At the beginning of the third millenium it may well be that She is screaming at us through a hole in the ozone layer and in the voices of the hungry and oppressed who suffer so terribly in God’s beautiful world.

“Do this in Memory”  Programme 2015–16 concludes next Sunday 29th May  at the 10am Mass.  After Mass there will be a short Eucharistic Procession in the Grounds of the Church with the First Holy Communion Children from Bunscoil Chríost Rí.

Special thanks to the parents’ representatives who helped to organize the Mass each month.  A meeting of the Parents’ Representatives on this Monday 23rd May in  Fr. Kerry’s house at 7.30pm
