Love  Conquers  Fear


Fear is the deafening sound of war.

Love is the hand that quietens it.

Fear is the voice that’s never heard.

Love is breaking the silence.


Fear is the truth that’s locked in the dark.

Love is the courage that frees it.

Fear is the hunger that starves all hope.

Love is the food that feeds it.


As long as pain exists, as long                                               as suffering is here, we will stay.

Trócaire. Until love conquers fear.


(This is the pledge that Trócaire makes to  the frightened, the hungry, the exploited in countries all of the world. This pledge is made on behalf of us – Irish Catholics. It is fulfilled by wonderful men and women from our country. They need our support.)


Sierra  Leone :  Pain and Poverty

Sierra Leone is on the western coast of Africa. The United Nations ranks it the ninth poorest country in the world (out of 188). Trócaire has been active there since the 1980s. The money support we give to Trócaire this Lent will be devoted to Sierra Leone.


Please take home a Trócaire Box. Let the box “speak” to you during the “40 days”.
