PETER’S PENCE – A MESSAGE FROM ARCHBISHOP DIARMUID MARTIN

The Annual collection for Peter’s Pence to support the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XV1 and the Pontifical Charities is to be taken up at all Masses in the Diocese this weekend - 2nd  and 3rd July.  The purpose of the annual collection called ‘Peter’s Pence’ is to enable our Holy Father, Pope Benedict to express his solidarity with those who endure the grievous wounds of poverty, deprivation and injustice, in the name of the Church.  This special annual collection is an opportunity to express your solidarity with him in his ministry of charity and in his witness to hope.  Through your solidarity with him, Pope Benedict can give to the poor what he has conveyed to us in his concern for the Irish Church, his closeness to them, the strength to endure and the inspiration to respond to the challenges they face.  In these times which are particularly difficult for you financially, I ask you as members of the communion of the Church to enable Pope Benedict XV1, to the best of your ability to fulfil the mission of Peter to strengthen the faith of our needy brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ, to the best of his ability.  This collection will replace the usual SHARE collection
