“Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 27th Dec. 2020 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

The 2015 movie The Revenant, was known for more than its storyline,  with several actors and crew leaving the set because of the gruelling conditions,  the demands of its director and running unnecessarily over budget.

When stuntman and actor Glenn Ennis signed on,  he would never have realised that his three minute cameo in the film would bring him fame and be one of the main talking points of a movie that was not always historically accurate.

Playing the part of a grizzly bear protecting her cubs, the ferocity and horror of his attack on Di Caprio, made it the most talked about film piece of the year.  Questions were also asked if the bear had molested Di Caprio.

This week on Where the road takes me, Glenn Ennis talks to John Greene about how this gruelling scene was done,  the dangers of stuntwork and  – Tom Cruise – the only actor who does his own stunts. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″

SEASON OF ADVENT

This weekend we begin the season of Advent which is a time of waiting for the great event – the coming of Christ.  Pope Francis has described the Advent season as a time of conversion to make space in one’s heart for Christ to come and fill it with joy. Vigilance, he continued, means “paying attention to our neighbor in difficulty and allowing their need to draw us in, without waiting for him or her to ask us for help.”  May we continue to be vigilant to the needs of our family members, our neighbours and our community as we journey through these challenging times.

Thought for the week ahead

Christianity is not merely belief.

It is the practice of that belief by active charity. (Frank Duff)Saturday 21st November celebrates the feast day for the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and celebrates when Mary was asked to be the mother of the Jesus. Her response, “Let it be done to me,” was a great act of faith as she placed her whole self at the service of God.

This weekend we say a special prayer for mothers everywhere and ask the Blessed Virgin Mary to protect them and guide them in these challenging times.

As a mark of respect to the sisters of the Presentation Order a wreath was laid in the Presentation Cemetery by the Girls National School and the Community School in recognition of the service the sisters have given to our Parish. [read more …] “Millstreet Parish Newsletter 22nd November 2020”
