4th Sunday in Lent

Suspension of Public and Weekday Masses continues.
However, Masses continue to be offered privately by every priest and in every parish. For your reassurance, I have offered at least two Masses every day (one in the church and one at home — and an extra Irish Mass on St Patrick’s Day) for the intentions of the parish. It pains me not to be able to let people know the times of these Masses but any possibility of attracting a group is to be avoided.

It is heartening to notice that people are visiting our church every day in impressive numbers, going by the consumption of shrine candles.

Live Broadcast of Masses
I commend the daily broadcast of Mass on RTE and also live broadcast on the Internet from many churches throughout the City and County of Cork.

Stations of the Cross
Continuing every Sunday during Lent at 8.00 pm.

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION
Continues as normal
IF PEOPLE WOULD LIKE TO ORGANISE ADORERS FOR ADDITIONAL HOURS OR EXTRA DAYS THEY WOULD BE VERY WELCOME.

Prayer for a Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the altar. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart … I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You

Prayer to protect against the Coronavirus

Our Father, we trustingly pray to you, asking that the coronavirus may do no more harm, that the epidemic may be swiftly got under control and that you restore the health of those affected and peace to the places where the virus has arrived.

Welcome into your kingdom the people who have died from this illness and comfort their families.

Sustain and protect the healthcare personnel who are fighting it and inspire and bless those working to control it.

Lord Jesus, doctor of our bodies and souls, we feel impotent in the face of this international health emergency but we trust in You. Give us peace and health.

Mother Mary, protect us and continue to take care of us and lead us through your love to your Son, Jesus. Amen.
