Eily’s Report – 15th December

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my weekly report.

Oh what a joy it was at the weekend to actually see our Masses being celebrated before our very eyes. It was the third Sunday of Advent so the pink Advent candle was lighting and Fr. Billy Radley the celebrant.

How we have longed for the day, when we could see our priest and to know that our people all over the world could join in with us for Mass. What a difference it will make to our Christmas ceremonies. When I think of all the people who would be home if they could, seeing them in the chapel for midnight Mass often finding it hard to get a seat with the crowds, the beautiful choir softly singing Silent Night, the crib all aglow awaiting the birth of Jesus. These are scenes which cannot be matched but thanks to the wonder of streaming, for now, we can all be together in spirit and the warmth of our St. Patricks magnificent church will reach out to them wherever they are.  We are by no means belittling the efforts made by all the neighbouring priests and churches and indeed of the whole world who kept us connected to our Holy Masses, for the past number of months, they were great, but we have to admit there is nothing like your own. The snippets of news, little changes local deaths and anniversaries to name but a few, the little things which knit a community together, they are important.
