A  Welcome  for  Sunday

In some people’s work life, a particular day of the week can be exceptionally busy. For other people, a particular season can be hectic. For all, Sunday Rest can help us keep a balance.


We bid you welcome, blessed Sunday,                                         a fine and joyful day after the week,                                       a fine and lovely day to speak to Christ.                                  Stir your feet and make your way to Mass.                            Stir your heart and drive from it all spite.                              Stir your lips and speak words of blessing.                Look up and see the Son of the Blessed Nurse,   the Virgin, for it was he who redeemed us;                                           may we be his in life and in death.


Traditional Gaelic Prayer.
