Kilmichael GAA
Club Lotto is postponed until further notice due to Covid 19

Hi All,
I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe in these very difficult and unusual times.

Sadly Covid-19 is rampant in our country at the moment and at this stage nearly everyone knows someone who has got it and in a lot of cases they don’t even know how they got it. Sometimes it can be very easy to judge. Be careful on that one as any of us could get it and we all need each other.

The Online Masses are doing very well and it never ceases to amaze me the amount of views we get and the number of friend requests continue to come in.

Maintaining a positive attitude is even more important these days and we have to keep it up. The animals in our care and company are good at showing us this.

Kindest regards and blessings to all.

Blessing for one another in our families

May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May His face shine upon you and be gracious to you.
May He look upon you with kindness,
and give you His peace.

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 - 10th January
First Reading
A reading from the Prophet Isaiah.
Oh, come to the water all you who are thirsty;
though you have no money, come!
Buy corn without money, and eat,
and, at no cost, wine and milk.
Why spend money on what is not bread,
your wages on what fails to satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and you will have good things to eat
and rich food to enjoy.
Pay attention, come to me;
listen, and your soul will live.
With you I will make an everlasting covenant
out of the favours promised to David.
See, I have made of you a witness to the peoples,
a leader and a master of the nations.
See, you will summon a nation you never knew,
those unknown will come hurrying to you,
for the sake of the Lord your God,
of the Holy One of Israel who will glorify you.
Seek the Lord while he is still to be found,
call to him while he is still near.
Let the wicked man abandon his way,
the evil man his thoughts.
Let him turn back to the Lord who will take pity on him,
to our God who is rich in forgiving;
for my thoughts are not your thoughts,
my ways not your ways — it is the Lord who speaks.
Yes, the heavens are as high above earth
as my ways are above your ways,
my thoughts above your thoughts.
Yes, as the rain and the snow come down from the heavens and do not return without watering the earth, making it yield and giving growth to provide seed for the sower and bread for the eating, so the word that goes from my mouth does not return to me empty, without carrying out my will and succeeding in what it was sent to do.
      The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm      
With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.
1. Truly, God is my salvation,
I trust, I shall not fear.
For the Lord is my strength, my song,
he became my saviour.
With joy you will draw water
from the wells of salvation.                                        Response
2 Give thanks to the Lord, give praise to his name!
Make his mighty deeds known to the peoples!
Declare the greatness of his name.                           Response
3 Sing a psalm to the Lord
for he has done glorious deeds,
make them known to all the earth!
People of Zion, sing and shout for joy
for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.  Response

Gospel  Acclamation             
Alleluia, alleluia!
John saw Jesus coming towards him and said:
This is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the World

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark.
In the course of his preaching John the Baptist said, ‘Someone is following me, someone who is more powerful than I am, and I am not fit to kneel down and undo the strap of his sandals. I have baptised you with water, but he will baptise you with the Holy Spirit.’
It was at this time that Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptised in the Jordan by John. No sooner had he come up out of the water than he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit, like a dove, descending on him. And a voice came from heaven, ‘You are my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on you.’
The Gospel of the Lord.
