KILMEENA - FAHY PARISH
Sunday 17th February 2013. First Sunday in Lent.
Today’s Gospel tells us that Jesus was tempted as we are but did not sin. Through his grace we too can resist temptation and overcome sin.
Fr. Jim Walsh, P.P. (098-41270)
THE SEASON OF LENT:
During Lent we prepare for Easter by conversion of heart. That means turning away from all that is evil in our lives and turning back to God. So, for the forty days of Lent we use Penance (e.g. fasting or giving up something we enjoy), Prayer (e.g. daily Mass, weekly Holy Hour, Stations of the Cross, Rosary, visits to the Blessed Sacrament, Bible reading and meditation) and Almsgiving (e.g. helping the poor and needy in the Third World by contributing to Trócaire.)
Trócaire Family Fast Boxes are available in the church porch.
TRÓCAIRE and LENT:
As Lent begins we call to mind those in our world who are most in need of our help. We remember in particular the one in six people who today will go to bed hungry. In a spirit of repentance let us resolve to keep these people close to us during the holy season of Lent.
FEASTS OF THE WEEK:
Thursday: St. Peter Damien, bishop and doctor of the church. He helped reform the Church in the Middle Ages. He preached penance and love not only by words but also by the example of his life. He died in 1072.
Friday: The Chair of St. Peter, apostle. This feast celebrates St Peter as Bishop of Rome and reminds us that Christ called St. Peter to serve the whole church.
Saturday: St. Polycarp, bishop and martyr. He was bishop of Smyrna or Izmir in modern Turkey. He was born in 69 and was a disciple of St. John, the Apostle. He was martyred in 155.
We welcome into God’s family and our parish community Bobby Jack Lane son of Patricia and Peter, Mucklagh.
