Tubrid Well
We ask our Lady to continue to protect our Parish and families during this pandemic.  Our Lady pray for us.

OPENING OF CHURCHES

Over the coming weeks we will be preparing our Churches for the return of Masses and this will be carried out in line with the guidelines which are currently being prepared by our Bishops in accordance with Government guidelines.  Once these are received, I will be sharing them with you and asking for your continued co-operation. The return of  Mass will be very different and the safety of our parishioners will be paramount.

After long and careful consideration, I am suggesting that from 8th June the weekday Masses, which will continue to be said behind closed doors, will be multi-intentional and will be the Masses booked for March, April & May which had to be postponed due to Covid19. Each family will be contacted by our Parish office over the coming week and I trust you will give this temporary arrangement careful consideration due to the extraordinary times we are in. Masses will continue to be transmitted on our local TV and on corkmusicstation.com.

I ask you to please continue to adhere to the precautions in place when you visit our Churches for private prayer:

  • The safest way to visit is to “walk around, stand and pray, don’t sit down and touch nothing.
  • Please use hand sanitisers in each Church and remember sanitise carefully as you enter and there is no risk of you bringing in the virus on your hands.
  • Sanitise your hands as you exit and there is no risk of you bringing the virus out on your hands.
  • Practice social distancing and follow signage

 

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK AHEAD
Often, when we lose hope and think this is the end,
God smiles from above and says
“Relax, it’s just a bend, not the end”.

Thank you to everyone who has returned their envelopes over the past number of weeks. Your support and encouragement is always appreciated.

OPENING OF CHURCHES FOR PRIVATE PRAYER

The opening of our Churches this week has been a welcome move and it has brought great comfort to our parishioners who have visited each of our Churches in the Parish. However, we must remain aware of and compliant with Government and Diocesan advise in regard to Covid19.  When visiting each Church please bear in mind the following advice:

  • The safest way to visit is to “walk around, stand and pray, don’t sit down and touch nothing.
  • Please use hand sanitisers in each Church and remember sanitise carefully as you enter and there is no risk of you bringing in the virus on your hands.
  • Sanitise your hands as you exit and there is no risk of you bringing the virus out on your hands.
  • Practice social distancing and follow signage

This continues to be a difficult time for everyone and I would encourage everyone who needs help to ask for it.  Everyone’s difficulties are different and none of us know the struggles that households are experiencing but always remember there is help available and ask for it. We have listed numbers for various groups and remember everyone needs a little help at some time in their lives.

(Grotto to our Lady on Clara Road)
Mary Our Mother, we ask you to protect the families of our Parish, give strength to those who are struggling at this time, comfort to those who are grieving and continued strength to those who work on the front-line. Let us never give up hope and let our community spirit be a support for each and everyone of us. Our Lady pray for us.

(Grotto to our Lady at Aubane Cross [1])

Mother of God and our Mother, pray for us to God, the Father of mercies, that this great suffering may end and that hope and peace may dawn anew.  Plead with your divine Son, as you did at Cana, so that the families of the sick and the victims be comforted, and their hearts be opened to confidence and trust.

Protect those doctors, nurses, health workers and volunteers who are on the frontline of this emergency, and are risking their lives to save others.  Support their heroic effort and grant them strength, generosity and continued health.

Be close to those who assist the sick night and day, and to priests who, in their pastoral concern and fidelity to the Gospel, are trying to help and support everyone. Blessed Virgin, illumine the minds of men and women engaged in scientific research, that they may find effective solutions to overcome this virus. Our Lady, pray for us. (Pope Francis)

The lives of each of us have changed dramatically since the first case of COVID19 was diagnosed.  Contact with family and friends is now done electronically rather than personally, a lot of people are working remotely which means less contact with work colleagues, schools and college doors are closed, children aren’t meeting their friends and the preparation and anticipation of summer holidays have been put on hold.  All these changes are hard at many levels, but by staying strong and by continuing to follow the advice we are being given by our HSE leaders and Government we can look forward to better days with our family and friends.

We have all been receiving “What’s app’s” with varying content – prayerful, spiritual, comical and amusing. I have put together some contents from these messages and perhaps when reading them take a moment to ponder on each one and the relevance in your life. Stay safe and thank you for the support and encouragement I continue to receive.

 A THOUGHT FOR EACH DAY OF THE WEEK

  1. The past cannot be changed
  2. Everyone’s journey is different
  3. Things always get better with time
  4. Happiness is found within
  5. Positive thoughts create positive things
  6. Enjoy the little things in life because one day you’ll look back and realise they were the big things.
  7. Always remember God loves you even on your worst days.

 

The Feast of Our Lady of Fatima is on next Wednesday 13th May and this was a day which the Legion of Mary would celebrate the Apparitions of Our Lady by saying the rosary publicly.  However due to COVID19 restrictions this is not possible this year.  Instead parishioners are invited to recite the rosary in their own homes at 3.00p.m. if possible or whatever times suits you. The hope of the Legion is that this sizeable gift be given to Our Lady for her intentions at this time.

My sincere thanks to parishioners who have dropped their Capital Fund and Due envelopes into the post box in our Parish office over the past number of weeks.  Your continued support and encouragement is very much appreciated.

The Parish office continues to be closed to the public but our secretary can still be contacted by phone (029 70043) or email for anniversary inclusions, mass cards or any other queries.

The month of May has always been associated with devotion of Our Lady and during this month all over Ireland people would visit their local Grotto’s to pray to Our Lady.  Here in our town we are fortunate to have Tubrid Well to visit and since my time in Millstreet, I have always found that no matter what time you visit the well you are never alone.  People visit for various reasons – some for thanksgiving, some seeking peace and comfort and others praying for the sick or bereaved.

However due to Covid19 restrictions we are currently unable to make these important visits, but that doesn’t mean we cannot be close to Our Lady in our homes.   Pope Francis has issued a letter to the world for the Month of May and encourages everyone to rediscover the beauty of praying the Rosary at home during this month.  So perhaps, here in our Parish, when we are unable to visit Tubrid Well or our Churches we can set aside some time each day and pray to Our Lady for protection and hope during these difficult days.

Pope Francis has also written a prayer that he asks us to pray at the end of the Rosary and he himself will pray it too during the month of May ‘in spiritual union with all of us’.

O Mary, You shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who, at the foot of the cross, were united with Jesus’ suffering and persevered in your faith. “Protectress of the Roman people”, you know our needs, and we know that you will provide, so that, as at Cana in Galilee, joy and celebration may return after this time of trial. Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform ourselves to the will of the Father and to do what Jesus tells us. For he took upon himself our suffering, and burdened himself with our sorrows to bring us, through the cross, to the joy of the Resurrection.                                                                  Amen.

 

On behalf of our Parish, I wish to thank the Drishane Sisters who have gifted our Church with this statue of “Our Lady of Victories” which had been in Drishane Convent and in their house in Killarney Road.  We have placed it in the Sanctuary for the month of May and we will remember the Sisters and pray for them and their communities worldwide.

Nano Nagle Anniversary

Today is the anniversary of Venerable Nano Nagle (1718-1784), foundress of the Presentation Sisters.

We remember in our prayers today the Presentation Sisters who taught and lived here in Millstreet.  We give thanks for the education and care they gave to our community. May God continue to protect their communities worldwide during this Corona virus pandemic.

 “The Almighty makes use of the weakest means to bring about His works” – Nano Nagle.

FIRST COMMUNIONS 2020

This week we have notified the school and parents of our first Holy Communion children that due to the continued closure of the schools and the major restrictions on people gathering we have had to take the unprecedented step of postponing these ceremonies.

In correspondence received from our diocesan offices during the week Bishop Ray acknowledges the preparation that has been done already for this sacrament which is a high-point for the children, their families, schools and communities but new dates will be set and in due course all will enjoy these wonderful occasions.

Once again, I thank you for your continued support, prayers and understanding during these difficult times.

 

Reflection to ponder on this week:
Life is often nearer to a vale of tears than to a forum of fairness; though that doesn’t mean we should give up hope”.

 

Let none of us give up hope and let our community spirit be a support for each and everyone of us.

Dear Parishioners,

This year we have celebrated our Easter Ceremonies in a very different way and while the restrictions put in place are difficult for each one of us, we can take strength and courage from the teaching of our Gospels.

We have read and listened for many years to the teaching of our Lord and we have head how the Risen Christ dispelled the fear of the disciples when the doors of the room were closed for fear. The Risen Christ gave hope.  Now we are like the disciples locked in our homes and it is this lesson of hope that we now need to believe in and it is this belief that will give us strength during these times and will help us to get through it.

To each person in our community, to each household who is dealing with illness or bereavement, may you find the strength you need in these two phrases that are vital for our world today and which the Risen Christ shared with his disciples and the world “Do not be afraid, peace be with you”.

My prayer this weekend for our parish, our community, our relatives, our friends, those who we are separated from and those who are fighting this pandemic on the front line is that God will protect us and that the faith we have will keep us strong.

I want to thank each of you for your continued support and prayers and may the true meaning of Easter be in each of our homes this year.
— Fr. Fitzgerald.

CONFESSIONS AND EASTER DUTY

As Churches are currently closed, we are aware that people will be unable to get to Confession before Easter. In his morning Mass on 20th March, Pope Francis spoke about this and how to resolve concerns about fulfilling our Easter duty:

“If you can’t go to confession, speak to God. He’s your Father.  Tell him the truth: “Lord, I did this and this and this. Pardon me.” Ask his forgiveness with all your heart with an act of contrition, and promise Him, “afterward I will go to confession.” You will return to God’s grace immediately. You yourself can draw near, as the catechism teaches us, to God’s forgiveness, without having a priest at hand.”

Dear Parishioners,

As we continue to journey during these difficult and unprecedented times please be assured of my prayers for the safety of all our Parishioners – here at home, those who are living around the world and especially those who are working in the frontline.

The safety guidelines that have been put in place to contain the spread of COVID 19 have impacted on the way we practice our faith but be assured our Churches will stay open for private prayer. However, I am asking that those visiting the Church practice physical distancing and avoid the touching of hard surfaces where possible.

Our Masses will continue to be celebrated behind closed doors and will be transmitted locally on our Church TV and I am grateful to Seán Radley for the transmission of our Masses through the Cork Music Station (www.corkmusicstation.com). This transmission is allowing those who are not near their loved ones to feel connected and this is very important during this time.

As you are aware the situation and spread of COVID19 is continuously changing and Bishop Ray Browne and the Diocesan Office are continuously updating our Parishes regarding best practice for the safety of our clergy and parishioners. In accordance with updated guidelines received I will not be making First Friday Calls for the month of April and I will offer Mass during next week for your intentions and well-being.

I want to thank you all the encouragement and support you continue to give me and I wish you and your families continued health and safety. God’s blessing to you all. Fr. John Fitzgerald

Prayer to St. Corona in a Time of Epidemic

Lord Jesus Christ, You came into this world for our salvation. Look kindly on us now, we pray, that we, and all those who serve You, might be kept safe from this epidemic. Heal those who are sick, comfort the suffering, bring back those who have gone astray, and above all, increase our faith, O Lord. Give us the grace to follow You and, like the martyr St. Corona, who gave her life for love of You, to take up our crosses daily without fear or hesitation. Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, have mercy on us and on the whole world.  St. Corona, patroness of epidemic victims, pray for us.
