Thought for the day Jesus had the gift of saying things directly and plainly, with a power to penetrate all our defences and lead us to a new awareness. Today’s message puts before us the paradox of the Gospel: we gain life by letting go of it. If I put my happiness, my being loved, at the centre of my life, then I will surely fail, even though to be loved and to be happy are really important. If on the other hand I put the happiness of others first and love them unconditionally, then I too will know unselfish love and deep happiness. This is the very insight and wisdom that Jesus puts before us as the key not just to love but to life and within that, the key to authentic discipleship precisely as a way of life. Prayer Teach us, Lord, that nothing is more life-giving than to love and be loved in return. KOM

Creation Time is from September 3rd to October 4th. This time invites us to reflect on the beauty of Creation and the necessity to cherish and protect it. The following is reflection on Food. Food is God’s Gift. Many of us treat food as mere fuel for our bodies. But food is a gift from God’s creation for us. By slowing down and noticing what we are eating, we begin to realise what a gift it is to have food that is delicious and nourishing. Grace Before and After Meals Pope Francis asks us to “return to this beautiful and meaningful custom. That moment of blessing, however brief, reminds us of our dependence on God for life; it strengthens our feeling of gratitude for the gifts of creation” Laudato Si #227. Some ways of appreciating our food – Mindful, loving attention to the preparation, Savouring each flavour + texture• Being present to the moment + to the people with you. During Creation Time the local Biodiversity Group are planning a trip to Garnish Island on Sept 16th, details next week.

Slimming World Beara. Every Thursday at 7.30pm at the Caha Centre, Adrigole. Contact Mairead at 085 1311800 for more details.

“Lord, teach us to contemplate you in the beauty of creation and reawaken our gratitude and sense of responsibility”
