Hi All,
I hope you are all keeping well during these very different times. As we begin August, I’m making a small change for this week in that I will be taking this coming week off which means there will be no Mass on Monday, Wednesday and Friday either on Facebook Live or in the churches. Since March, 20th I will have done upwards of 75 appearances on Facebook Live and it’s time to for me to take a small break after Sunday Mass. I will be back again for 8.15 pm Vigil Mass on Saturday, 8th in Cooldorrihy and 10 am and 11.30 am Masses on Sunday, 9th August in Johnstown and Toames.
I will not be doing the First Friday calls for August and will resume them on Friday, 4th September next.
I am also planning to do the Saturday Vigil Mass of the 15th August from Cooldorrihy Grotto at 8.15 pm
(weather permitting).
God’s blessing and kindest regards to all.

Pat.

Sunday Readings - 2nd August

First Reading
A reading from the book of the Prophet Isaiah. 
Thus says the Lord:
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..
The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm            
Response:   You open wide your hand, O Lord, you grant our desires.

1. The Lord is kind and full of compassion,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
How good is the Lord to all,
compassionate to all his creatures.              Response
2. The eyes of all creatures look to you
and you give them their food in due time.
You open wide your hand,
grant the desires of all who live.                    Response
3. The Lord is just in all his ways
and loving in all his deeds.
He is close to all who call him,
call on him from their hearts.                         Response

Second Reading
A reading from the letter of St. Paul to the Romans.                
Nothing therefore can come between us and the love of Christ, even if we are troubled or worried, or being persecuted, or lacking food or clothes, or being threatened or even attacked.
These are the trials through which we triumph, by the power of him who loved us.
For I am certain of this: neither death nor life, no angel, no prince, nothing that exists, nothing still to come, not any power, or height or depth, nor any created thing, can ever come between us and the love of God made visible in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The Word of the Lord.

Gospel Acclamation                  
Alleluia, alleluia!
Blessings on the King who comes, in the name of the Lord!
Peace in heaven and glory in the highest heavens!
Alleluia!

Gospel
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew.
When Jesus received this news he withdrew by boat to a lonely place where they could be by themselves. But the people heard of this and, leaving the towns, went after him on foot. So as he stepped ashore he saw a large crowd; and he took pity on them and healed their sick.
When evening came, the disciples went to him and said, ‘This is a lonely place, and the time has slipped by; so send the people away, and they can go to the villages to buy themselves some food’. Jesus replied, ‘There is no need for them to go: give them something to eat yourselves’. But they answered ‘All we have with us is five loaves and two fish’. ‘Bring them here to me’ he said. He gave orders that the people were to sit down on the grass; then he took the five loaves and the two fish, raised his eyes to heaven and said the blessing. And breaking the loaves handed them to his disciples who gave them to the crowds. They all ate as much as they wanted, and they collected the scraps remaining; twelve baskets full. Those who ate numbered about five thousand men, to say nothing of women and children.
The Gospel of the Lord.
