Official Family Prayer for the World Meeting of Families 2018

God, our Father,

We are brothers and sisters in Jesus your Son,

One family, in the Spirit of your love.


Bless us with the joy of love.

 Make us patient and kind,

gentle and generous,

welcoming to those in need.

Help us to live your forgiveness and peace.

 Protect all families with your loving care,

Especially those for whom we now pray:

[We pause and remember family members and others by name]

 Increase our faith,

Strengthen our hope,

Keep us safe in your love,

Make us always grateful for the gift of life that we share.

This we ask, through Christ our Lord,

Amen

Mary, mother and guide, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, father and protector, pray for us.

Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us.

Saints Louis and Zélie Martin, 

 pray for us.

Thought for the Week

Easter Time

The celebration of Easter is prolonged throughout the Easter season. The fifty days from Easter Sunday to Pentecost Sunday are celebrated as one feast day, the ‘great Sunday’. The Sundays of this season are regarded as Sundays of Easter . They have precedence over all feasts of the Lord and over all solemnities. Solemnities that fall on one of these Sundays are anticipated on the Saturday. Celebrations in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary or the saints that fall during the week may not be transferred to one of these Sundays. This sacred period of fifty days concludes with Pentecost Sunday, when the gift of the Holy Spirit to the apostles, the beginnings of the church, and the start of its mission to all tongues and peoples and nations are commemorated.

 

Excerpt from statement of the Irish Bishops’ Conference Our Common Humanity’

As pastors we are aware that the conversation about unborn life is sensitive, delicate and indeed, painful for many. We offer our reflections with the greatest of respect for everyone while wishing to make some points clearly and unambiguously.

Fundamental right’ Everyone of us has a right to our life. It is not given to us by the Constitution of Ireland or by any law. We have it ‘as of right’, whether we are wealthy or poor, healthy or sick. All human beings have it. For us as a society to now declare that any category of human being should have that right taken from them would be a shocking step. It effectively says that unborn children do not exist or, if they do, they do not count. That is a manifest injustice.
