Twenty Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time  (Day for Life)                         (40/13)

 

THE QUOTABLE POPE FRANCIS

Through his audiences, addresses and homilies, the pope humbly proclaims the Gospel message.  From the first time he walked out onto the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica March 13, Pope Francis has shown himself to be a gifted speaker who conveys thoughtfulness and joy through simple language, as well as through silence, looks and gestures.

Addressing the College of Cardinals two days after his election, Pope Francis said wisdom is "like a good wine that improves with age."  Later, to youth gathered in St Peter's Square for Palm Sunday, he said, "With Christ, the heart never grows old!"

Expressing both the wisdom of experience and a youthful exuberance, the 76 year old pontiff's humble proclamation of the Gospel has already inspired many.

 

On the Christian Life, Francis tells us

 

 "In this period of crisis, today, it is important not to turn in on ourselves, burying our own talent, our spiritual, intellectual, and material riches, everything that the Lord has given us, but, rather to open ourselves, to be supportive, to be attentive to others. ... Set your stakes on great ideals, the ideals that enlarge the heart, the ideals of service that make your talents fruitful.  Life is not given to us to be jealously guarded for ourselves, but is given to us so that we may give it in turn."  – Audience, April 24

 

On Grace And Forgiveness

 

"This is the invitation which I address to everyone: Let us accept the grace of Christ's resurrection!  Let us be renewed by God's mercy; let us be loved by Jesus; let us enable the power of his love to transform our lives, too; and let us become agents of this mercy, channels through which God can water the earth, protect all creation and make justice and peace flourish."  – Urbi et Orbi Message, Easter 2013

 

The Parish has made a donation of €7,500 to Howth Primary School, Scoil Mhuire, to part finance the refurbishment and improvement works needed to cater for the ever increasing numbers of children in our parish school.
