Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time 30th June 2024


       Prayer for Summer     

This Summer, we pray

for a refreshment of mind and body,

for joy, love and safety.

We pray that we count

our many blessings,

and that we share our blessings with others.

We pray that we enjoy and relish every moment of sunshine and fun,

(and not forget we live in Ireland!)

Amen.

Irish Bishop’s Conference

Providing compassionate care at the end of life

To address the sensitive issue of compassionate care at the end of life, and in response to the need to inform the faithful of Catholic teaching on this important life issue that affects so many families, the Bishops of Ireland have published the pastoral letter: Freedom to Live Fully, Until Death Comes. You are invited to read this letter and view the accompanying video Through the Valley, which offers personal testimonies by carers and people with terminal illness. The key message of both letter and video asserts that every person possesses inherent, infinite dignity that remains intact regardless of their circumstances. In this context, bishops strongly oppose the Oireachtas Committee’s proposal to Government to legislate for assisted suicide and call on support for healthcare workers who uphold the sanctity of life.
