Gracious God, your
Son Jesus Christ
gave us the confidence
to call you Father. We believe you care for
us. We believe also
in the communion
of saints. With
confidence we ask
St. Jude, patron of
difficult cases, to pray
with us, for our
special intentions....
Thank you, God,
for hearing our prayer.

Child Protection Statement

Love Overcame by Julie Palmer

Lord, remember not only the men and women of good will but all those of ill will.
Lord, do not only remember all the sufferings
they have subjected us to.
Lord, remember the fruits we brought forth thanks to this suffering –
Our Comradeship
Our Loyalty
Our Humility
Our courage and generosity,
The greatness of heart that all of this inspired.
And when they come to judgement,
Let all those fruits we have borne
Be their reward and forgiveness.

Amen

The Ravensbruck prayer was found scrawled on a piece of wrapping paper in the Ravensbruck concentration camp (the only major Nazi concentration camp for women, where 92,000 women and children died). Some sources say it was found on the body or in the clothing of a deadchild. [27th January is Holocaust Memorial Day]

Recently one was circulated claiming to be involved with local Churches – but when we checked out the telephone numbers given on them,  none was in operation. Well known Irish Charities, such as Enable Ireland and the Irish Cancer Society, who leave bags for collection always use valid phone numbers and charity numbers. Established charities, including the Vincent de Paul rely on clothes collections for vital income and are being significantly affected by the bogus collections
