THE IRISH CATHOLIC The ‘Irish Catholic’ newspaper is on sale (price €1.50.)
In the Good Shepherd discourse (John 10:1-42), Jesus described his purpose before a sceptical audience. He acts like a dedicated shepherd. He protects his flock against thieves and wolves even to the point of death. He befriends his followers, as a
shepherd who treats each sheep like we treat our favourite family pet. He loves each and every one of us, his followers, intimately.
As his sheep, we follow his call. Our relationship is more than call and response, however. Jesus gives us a life that cannot be taken away. With this life we are in the hands of Jesus and the hands of the Father.
Cutting of grass will take place in the cemetery on Wed eve April 24th. Hope you can come along to give a helping hand.
