EARTH WEEK 2013 FROM 4TH TO 13TH OCTOBER: Parishes throughout the Diocese of Kerry are preparing to celebrate Earth Week 2013. In celebrating Earth Week 2013 we invite you to reflect on the importance of Water. Access to water for life is a basic human need and a fundamental human right. Yet in our increasingly prosperous world, nearly a billion people are denied the right to clean water. “It is therefore necessary to cultivate a public conscience that considers food and access to water as universal rights of human beings, without distinction or discrimination”. (Caritas in Veritate. Benedict XVI.) We invite you as a parish, school, or family to see how you use this precious gift. Let Earth Week 2013 remind us that every drop counts! Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation Group.

RIC: RYAN served in Moyvane up to 1920.
His son won 6 All Ireland Medals with Kerry

GUIDE: Catholic Guide to depression;


Taken from book by Cecil B. Hartley published 1875
Even if convinced that your opponent is utterly wrong, yield gracefully, decline further discussion,
Retain, if you will, a fixed political opinion, yet do not parade it upon all occasions,
Never interrupt anyone who is speaking; it is quite rude to officiously supply a name or date about which another hesitates, unless you are asked to do so.
It is ill-bred to put on an air of weariness during a long speech from another person,
In a general conversation, never speak when another person is speaking, and never try by raising your own voice to drown that of another.
Never, unless you are requested to do so, speak of your own business or profession in society.
In a dispute, if you cannot reconcile the parties, withdraw from them.
Never, during a general conversation, endeavor to concentrate the attention wholly upon yourself.
A man of real intelligence and cultivated mind is generally modest.
It is as great an accomplishment to listen with an air of interest and attention, as it is to speak well.
Never listen to the conversation of two persons who have thus withdrawn from a group.
Make your own share in conversation as modest and brief as is consistent with the subject under consideration.
Speak of yourself but little
If you submit to flattery, you must also submit to the imputation of folly and self-conceit.
In speaking of your friends, do not compare them, one with another.
Avoid, in conversation all subjects which can injure the absent
Never notice it if others make mistakes in language
In conversing with a foreigner who speaks imperfect English, listen with strict attention, yet do not supply a word, or phrase, if he hesitates
Be careful in society never to play the part of buffoon,
Avoid boasting. To speak of your money, connections, or the luxuries at your command is in very bad taste.
If you find you are becoming angry in a conversation, either turn to another subject or keep silence.
Avoid, if you can, seeing the skeleton in your friend’s closet, but if it is paraded for your special benefit, regard it as a sacred confidence, and never betray your knowledge to a third party
Avoid gossip and flattery
