Thought for the Week

Feast Days this week

20 Sept - Fr Andrew Kim Taegǒn, Paul Chong Hasang & the Korean Martyrs (19th century) - The 103 of the Korean martyrs that are celebrated are mostly lay men and women. The Korean Church is unique because it was founded entirely by laypeople.

21 Sept - St Matthew, Apostle and Evangelist, was born in Capernaum. Jesus said to him: “Follow me”. And leaving everything, he got up and followed him. As a Roman tax collector, the people would have regarded Matthew as a collaborator and a traitor. 

23 Sept - St Eunan, (624-704) Abbot, was born in Donegal. 

He became the abbot in Iona and was learned in Sacred Scripture.

23 Sept – St Pius of Pietrelcina (1887-1968) Padre Pio was born in Pietrelcina, Italy, and died at San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy. He was a mystic who received the marks of the stigmata in 1918, and was a a renowned holy man, charity worker, confessor and spiritual director.
