At some time or another, every follower of Jesus is faced with trying circumstances, very difficult decisions, very great sorrows, very powerful tempations.  Here are a few examples of the kind of things that the modern follower of Jesus might have to cope with in daily living:

JOHN IS A YOUNG PERSON LIVING AWAY FROM HIS FAMILY HOME.  It is Sunday morning and he is in a warm bed.  It is raining and very cold outside.  Should he leave his bed and go to Mass?  He knows he will have to face the laughter of his mates as they take their “LITURGY OF THE WORD” straight out of the tabloids.  Will John be able to obey the gentle voice of Jesus calling him to come to Church and listen to the uplifting and encouring Word of God?

MARY IS SINGLE, WHO HAS BECOME PREGNANT: She is heading into a storm of protest from her parents and awful gossip for her nieghbours as soon as the news breaks.  Then she is offered a way out – a quiet abortion.  No one ever will know, but then she hears the gentle voice of Jesus saying that abortion is wrong.  Will she have the courage to listen to Jesus?

EILEEN – A YOUNG MUN WITH FOUR CHILDREN: Suddenly her husband leaves her for another woman.  She feels hurt and betrayed, lonely and very angry.  Then she hears the gentle voice of Jesus inviting her to trust.  Will she have the courage to allow the presence and touch of Jesus to guide and bless her and her four children through this awful time?

TIMMY IS A GARDA: A drug dealer offers him a very large amount of money, if he would turn a blind eye to his activities.  It is very tempting.  But then he hears the gentle voice of Jesus saying, “Do not participate in corruption”.  Will Timmy be able to heed the gentle voice of Jesus?

PAUL IS A COMMERICAL TRAVELLER: His work takes him away from home a lot.  One night he meets a very attractive woman.  He hasn’t been getting on of late with his wife.  No one will know if he is unfaithful to her.  He hears the gentle voice of Jesus reminding him of his marriage vows. Will Paul have the strength to listen to Jesus who tells him that adultery is wrong?

The examples are endless, but the point has been made at some time or another, all of us face very trying circumstances.  At those times Jesus will remind us that He is there to help, guide, and protect us.  May we ever be attentive to His gentle voice, always inviting and calling us to do what is right and good.  May His love and compassion continue to uphold us today and always.

THREE NEW SPECIAL MEMBERS: This is my third Sunday with you as your new Parish Priest and each Sunday to date I’ve had the joy of having a Baptism, welcome a baby in our Christian Family here in our Parish.  Please pray in thanksgiving for Kathleen Adeline Saccard, Woodgrove, Sive Christina Lyons Dromurhur and Sadhbh Kennelly, Leitrim West.  Bless them and their parents & families.  Welcome Sive, Kathleen and Sadhbh.

SACRED SPACE: As our Church in Moyvane is dedicated to our Blessed Lady we have a special sacred space erected for the month of August.  A petition box will be placed in front of the ‘sacred space’ for your prayers & petitions to Our Blessed Lady.  May Mary continue to guide, bless and protect our Parish.
