Hi All,
As we move closed towards the end of November I can’t help thinking “how time flies.” This Sunday we will be celebrating the Feast of Christ the King of the Universe. The following Sunday will be the first Sunday of Advent. Hopefully that will bring us closer to opening up our churches for Masses again as we move nearer to celebrating the Birth of Christ Our Saviour.
I will be celebrating Mass on Facebook live from St. Enda’s Church, Johnstown this Sunday and all going well from St. Finbarr’s Church, Toames for the first Sunday of Advent. We continue to pray for positive developments in the Covid-19 fight.
Sincere thanks to all for your continued support to myself and to the parish finances through your continued regular donations.
Kindest regards and blessings to all.
Pat.

Prayer for those alone
‘Alone but not afraid’

I live alone, dear Lord, stay by my side,
in all my daily needs be Thou my Guide.
Grant me good health, for that indeed, I pray,
to carry on my work from day to day.
Keep pure my mind, my thoughts, my every deed,
let me be kind, unselfish in my neighbour's need.
Spare me from fire, malicious tongues
from thieves, from fear and evil ones.
If sickness or an accident befall
then humbly Lord I pray, hear thou my call.
And when I’m feeling low or in despair.
lift up my heart and help me in my prayer.
I live alone, Dear Lord, yet have no fear
Because I feel your presence ever near.

Family Prayer in time of pandemic

Lord Jesus Christ, you travelled through towns and villages “curing every disease and illness.”
At your command the sick were made well again.
Come to our aid now, in the midst of the global spread of this virus, that we may experience your healing love. Lord, healer of all, stay by our side in this time of uncertainty and give us your peace.
In your mercy Lord, hear our prayer.

Sunday Readings - 22nd November
First Reading
A reading from the prophet Ezekiel.
The Lord says this: I am going to look after my flock myself and keep all of it in view. As a shepherd keeps all his flock in view when he stands up in the middle of his scattered sheep, so shall I keep my sheep in view.
I shall rescue them from wherever they have been scattered during the mist and darkness. I myself will pasture my sheep, I myself will show them where to rest – it is the Lord who speaks. I shall look for the lost one, bring back the stray, bandage the wounded and make the weak strong. I shall watch over the fat and healthy. I shall be a true shepherd to them.
As for you, my sheep, the Lord says this: I will judge between sheep and sheep, between rams and he-goats.
      The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm            
Response:   Response:
The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.

1. The Lord is my shepherd;
there is nothing I shall want.
Fresh and green are the pastures
where he gives me repose.            Response
2. Near restful waters he leads me,
to revive my drooping spirit.
He guides me along the right path;
he is true to his name.                    Response
3. You have prepared a banquet for me
in the sight of my foes.
My head you have anointed with oil;
my cup is overflowing.                    Response
4. Surely goodness and kindness shall follow me
all the days of my life.
In the Lord’s own house shall I dwell
for ever and ever.                              Response

Second Reading
A reading from the first letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians.
Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of all who have fallen asleep. Death came through one man and in the same way the resurrection of the dead has come through one man. Just as all men die in Adam, so all men will be brought to life in Christ; but all of them in their proper order: Christ as the first-fruits and then, after the coming of Christ, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father, having done away with every sovereignty, authority and power. For he must be king until he has put all his enemies under his feet and the last of the enemies to be destroyed is death. And when everything is subjected to him,
then the Son himself will be subject in his turn to the One who subjected all things to him, so that God may be all in all.
The Word of the Lord.

Gospel Acclamation                  
Alleluia, alleluia!
Blessings on him who comes in the name of the Lord!
Blessings on the coming kingdom of our father David!
Alleluia!

Gospel
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘When the Son of Man comes in his glory, escorted by all the angels, then he will take his seat on his throne of glory. All the nations will be assembled before him and he will separate men one from another as the shepherd separates sheep from goats. He will place the sheep on his right hand and the goats on his left. Then the King will say to those on his right hand, “Come, you whom my Father has blessed, take for your heritage the kingdom prepared for you since the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave me drink; I was a stranger and you made me welcome; naked and you clothed me, sick and you visited me, in prison and you came to see me.” Then the virtuous will say to him in reply, “Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you; or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and make you welcome; naked and clothe you; sick or in prison and go to see you?” And the King will answer, “I tell you solemnly, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me.”
Next he will say to those on his left hand, “Go away from me, with your curse upon you, to the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For 1 was hungry and you never gave me food; I was thirsty and you never gave me anything to drink; I was a stranger and you never made me welcome, naked and you never clothed me, sick and in prison and you never visited me.” Then it will be their turn to ask, “Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty, a stranger or naked, sick or in prison, and did not come to your help?” Then he will answer, “I tell you solemnly, in so far as you neglected to do this to one of the least of these, you neglected to do it to me.” And they will go away to eternal punishment, and the virtuous to eternal life.’
The Gospel of the Lord.
