Crossing Hard Borders
The direct route from Galilee to Jerusalem led through Samaria; but most Jews avoided it. There was a centuries’ old quarrel beween the Jews and the Samaritans. In fact, the Samaritans did everything possible to obstruct Jews who might take the direct route.
When Jesus deliberately takes this route he is extending a hand of friendship to a people who are regarded as enemies. His offer is rejected but, far from responding with anger, he accepts their rejection and moves on. He bears them no ill-will. Instead, he is patient and respectful.
This event is a model of tolerance – to accept that others may have different valid standpoints.
Annual Mass for the deceased of the parish – with a special intention for those buried in St.Ailbe’s Cemetery – will take place on this Wednesday, 3rd July, 7.30pm. Please pass on word to family members and friends living in nearby parishes or further afield. We recall the age=old saying: “It is a holy and a wholesome thought to pray for the dead.”
Visits to the Sick
If you have a family member or close friend in hospital or nursing h ome and if s/he would like to receive a visit from one of the priests of the parish, please pass on word to Fr. Moloney or Fr. Rochford.
