REMEMBERING OUR LOVED ONES IN NOVEMBER
The month of November is traditionally the month we remember and pray for our dead and this year it is particularly poignant. Since March of this year families who have buried their loved ones have done so without the customary spiritual and community supports which are so much part of our tradition and we know there is a huge yearning for consolation and hope in the hearts of people.
Due to the current restrictions we have to defer our annual Mass of remembrance for those who have died in the past 12 months and the blessing of graves. However, during the month, I will be making private visits to each cemetery in the Parish and will bless and pray privately in each one. Mass for the Holy Souls and those on our November lists will be celebrated during our weekday schedule and you will be able to access the mass through our Church TV and corkmusicstation.com. Our November garden has been placed at the back of Millstreet Church and we invite you to visit for private prayer.
May the Lord support us all the day long, till the shadows lengthen,
And the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed,
And the fever of life is over, and our work is done.
Then in his mercy may he give us a safe lodging,
And a holy rest, and peace at the last. (Cardinal Newman)
NOVEMBER – A TIME TO REMEMBER: Online for three Monday nights, Nov 2nd, 9th and 16th, 8.00 p.m. – 8.30 p.m., Martina Lehane Sheehan, Fr Jim Cogley and Elizabeth Garry Brosnan will invite us to find hope as we journey through the month of November. Each night will invite us into a time of reflection, prayer and music, offering us a chance to rest and pray as we remember our loved ones who are with God, as we pray with our sorrows and find ways of living with grief and loss.
