COVID: government and the HSE spent a total of €40m in taxpayer money on Covid-related advertising. Earlier today I had an unexpected chance to ask questions of Graham Medley, the chair of the Sage modelling committee. He’s a professor at London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) which last weekend published a study on Omicron with very gloomy scenarios and making the case for more restrictions. But JP Morgan had a close look at this study and spotted something big: all the way through, LSHTM assumes that the Omicron variant is just as deadly as Delta. ‘But evidence from South Africa suggests that Omicron infections are milder,’ JP Morgan pointed out in a note to clients. Adjust for this, it found, and the picture changes dramatically:

 

“Bed occupancy by Covid-19 patients at the end of January would be 33% of the peak seen in January 2021. This would be manageable without further restrictions.

Ireland has the youngest population in Europe; according to the 2016 census, 13.4% of the population was over 65 years of age.  The population has since increased by about 200,000 and now those over 65 years is about 14% at 696,000.

 

In Sweden, over-65 years olds constitute 19.9% of the population at 2,049,000.Therefore, in Sweden, there are about six more high-risk people per 100 of the population than in Ireland.

 

The mortality rate in over-65s is very similar in the two countries; 0.62% in Ireland and 0.61% in Sweden.

COVID regulations are spreading the virus in practice in some cases. People are travelling while infected and often sick to get tested, when they should be in bed. They put others in danger transporting them, then when in town, they have to stock up with supplies and the people who have to isolate, having been close contacts, get bored at home and, many will go to a distant town to pass the time. The most vulnerable have died in many cases over the past year, and thousands have already got infected and are substantially immune and do not need another dose of the vaccine, while in poor countries, new variants are emerging, because we may be wasting the vaccine.

TRIBUTE to Father Kevin McNamara from Killarney Advertiser 21 December 2021.

 

We are sad to report that Fr Kevin McNamara has passed away suddenly earlier today.

 

Fr Kevin was appointed to the Glenflesk Parish in July after previously serving in Killarney, Rathmore and Kenmare, and had been in Moyvane for six years just before taking over at St Agatha’s Church.

 

Fr Kevin was very active in his short time in Glenflesk and as recently as last October ran a concert in the Gleneagle Hotel to raise funds to re-furbish Barraduff Church.

 

His passing was confirmed to the Killarney Advertiser by Fr Kieran O’Brien of the Killarney Parish.

 

He passed away in Cork this morning after a short spell in hospital. He was 65.

 

“We are numbed by the suddenness and shock of it all,” Fr Kieran told the Killarney Advertiser. “He was an active man, and a man in active ministry until he was hospitalised quite recently. He served in Killarney too and is well known in the community. He was full of enthusiasm for doing up Barraduff church. He was a very active priest and achieved an awful lot in his short time in Glenflesk.”

TRIBUTE from Knockanure N.S site

 

It was with great shock and sadness that we learned of the sudden and untimely passing of Fr. Kevin. He was without doubt a unique priest who served his people well. His energy for and enthusiasm in his ministry will forever be remembered by the people in this parish. When he joined us in Scoil Chorp Chríost, Knockanure for celebrations such as First Holy Communion, Graduation masses, Grandparents’ Day etc. he made each service personal for one and all. He had a very generous heart.

 

We thank you Fr Kevin for the interest and energy you gave your 40 years of priesthood. We all thought that you would have had many more. You gave 40 years of sterling service. May you now have your eternal reward in Heaven, reunited with your parents, Mary and Tom.

The pope’s message for the 2022 World Day of Peace, the 55th celebration, is entitled “Dialogue between generations, education, and work: tools for building lasting peace.”

 

In the text, Pope Francis outlined three “paths for building a lasting peace”: promoting dialogue between generations, investing in education, and improving labor conditions.

CHRISTMAS MESSAGE FROM BISHOP RAY BROWNE:

 

No one has ever seen God; it is the only Son, who is nearest the Father’s heart,who has made him known. John 1:18

 

Dia dhiabh. Nollaig Shona dhiabh. The Son of God, the Almighty, the All -powerful, as helpless and dependent as a newborn baby. The pure love of the new-born baby Jesus proclaiming God’s eternal, unconditional love for the earth and all its peoples.

 

A word of thanks to all who through their work, their community and parish involvement, or their homes have responded so well to the great, great challenge presented by Covid. Again and again in the pandemic, we have seen the great love and selflessness of so many people, - all ages and all situations. You have been an inspiration to us all. Care for all people and care for the environment:

 

This year of Covid and of Cop26, the infant Jesus in the crib points to two appropriate Christmas responses: love and care for each other; love and care for our planet. More at

THOUGHT: We need to make the family a confessional rather than a courtroom. A senior Judge of the Supreme Court congratulated the bride and groom in a marriage and gave them a pertinent piece of advice: “See that you never convert your family into a courtroom; instead let it be a confessional. If the husband-and-wife start arguing like attorneys in an attempt to justify their behaviour, their family becomes a court of law and nobody wins. On the other hand, if the husband and the wife — as in a confessional — are ready to admit their faults and try to correct them, the family becomes a Heavenly one.

U.S. Immigrant Visas Show Slight Rise The Visa Office of the U.S. State Department has issued its annual report, a copy of which was recently forwarded to the American Irish Immigration Committee in New York. During fiscal year 1973 (from July 1972 to June 1973) 972 U.S. immigrant visas were issued in Ireland. This figure represents a slight rise over the 1972 figure when 881 visas were issued, but is far below the 1964 figure of 6,328 visas. That was the final year before the 1965 U.S. Immigration Law went into effect. The number of non-immigrant or visitor's visas issued in Ireland in 1973 was 27,363, an increase of 2,000 over the 1972 figure. In 1964 only 8,307 visitor's visas were issued to Irishmen. Allowing for the fact that improved economic conditions in Ireland allow for an increased number of tourists to the U.S., such a figure gives rise to speculation that a fair number of Irishmen are using the visitor visa circuit to attempt to enter the U.S. Recent legislation and administration changes should cut down on this means of entry in the near future. The top ten countries sending immigrants to the U.S. in 1973 were the Philippines (27,229), Korea (22,514), China (21,052), Italy (21,026), India (12,768), Greece (10,824), Portugal (10,790), Great Britain (10,003), Yugoslavia (7,905) and Germany (5,785).

IRISH FIRMS GO EAST

 

A joint deal to sell Erin Foods vegetables and machinery manufactured by the Irish Sugar Company in mid-East states is understood to, be in an advanced stage of negotiations. The agreement could be worth 1 million pounds in the first year alone. The talks have been going on for some months between Erin and a Government-backed Lebanese combine and the hopes are that a lucrative business will be opened up to Iraq, Iran, Kuwait and the Lebanon. Trial shipments of soup and dried vegetables have been exported to Lebanon. After a visit to the Sugar Company's Carlow machinery plant by a trade delegation, a number of vegetable harvesters were purchased and more are on order.

VIEW FROM ENGLAND Emigration On The Rise Again By MARTIN COLLINS Census results published in July confirm fears that the 26-county state is suffering a new rise of emigration. Figures released from the Central Statistics Office based on the April 13 census show that from a population of 3.5 million more than 30,000 people left the twenty-six counties in the previous year. As the book Getting Into America by US immigration lawyer Howard Deutsch topped the best-seller list in June, speculation is rife that within a couple of years, the level of emigration will match that of the Fifties, when 42,000 were leaving each year. The Canadian embassy in Dublin reports that between 300 and 400 pre-application immigration questionnaires are being handed in every month. Whereas in the Fifties, unemployment stood at 100,000, today the figure is up to 232,000. Even this figure is kept artificially low by temporary work schemes and youth training projects which mask underlying trends.

Socially-distanced carols

 

Music is a massive part of Christmas, but this year we're going to have to get inventive to ensure we're rockin' around the Christmas tree safely. So why not rally your neighbours and organise a socially-distanced singalong? Each household can stand at their window, doorstep or balcony (with a tipple of their choice) and organisers can provide backing tracks on their phone or mini speaker, if available. It's a great way of getting people in the festive mood and including those who usually suffer from loneliness at this time of year.

CONCERT Dec 2021; Sisters attend ‘The Priests’ concert in Belfast

 

Enda McMullan SSL

 

Neither Storm Barra nor the emergence of a new strain of the Covid virus could stop ‘The Priests’, aka Fathers Eugene and Martin O’Hagan, and David Delargy, bringing their first concert in two years to the Europa Hotel in Belfast.

 

Fr David Delargy gave a warm welcome to the many St Louis Sisters in the audience. Ann McCourt SSL was there with Ita Heatley McDonald and Bronagh Jemfrey, two key team members in her youth ministry. She thoroughly enjoyed the entire evening and said it was ‘a great treat’ for them.

 

Dympna O’Daly SSL who has known Fr David since 2002, when he succeeded her as chaplain in the University of Ulster at Jordanstown, had this to say of the evening, “I so enjoyed the concert. It was really beautiful, the fun, the joy, the banter, the lightness of it, the lovely harmonies, the solemnity of the Latin – it was wonderful.“ The Twelve Days of Christmas, which ‘The Priests’ sang as an encore, with its accompanying actions was “a real hoot altogether.” Sr Dympna said the evening really lifted her spirits and made Advent very special for her. She thanked Fathers Martin, Eugene and David for giving everyone such a wonderful night, saying, “It was just glorious“.

 

Sheila McGovern SSL, aged 91, was there with her niece Oonagh. There were times when she felt quite emotional as she enjoyed the programme. She said, “Hopefully we will be around for next year. It really makes Christmas for all of us.”

======================

 

REGAN: It was forty years ago, on Dec. 23, 1981, that Reagan gave perhaps the most Catholic Christmas address any president ever has. He began by quoting Chesterton — “the world will never starve for wonders, but only for the want of wonder” — and the topic was urgent, namely the defense of the liberty of a proud Catholic nation, Poland.

 

He professed his belief in the “divinity of the child born in Bethlehem, that he was and is the promised Prince of Peace.”

 

Then the president turned to the need for peace in a troubled world.

 

Reagan’s first year in office was a terrible year. Economic pain was still widespread. The president acknowledged that “for some Americans, this will not be as happy a Christmas as it should be.”

The IRISH PEOPLE was a weekly newspaper which served as the “Voice of Irish Republicanism in America.” Published by volunteers who supported an Irish Republican political analysis, the paper provided weekly reports and analysis of events in Ireland related to the struggle against British rule. It also served as a contemporary weekly record and organizer of Irish-American political activity in the United States during a crucial epoch (1972-2004). Those who wish to study historic events in Ireland and how such events were seen and influenced by Americans will find it an indispensable resource.

SCAMS: How to avoid delivery scams; First, are you expecting a parcel?

 

 There's no need to enter sensitive information to receive one, and none of the major delivery companies will ask for this - if an app or message is asking for this, it should raise alarm bells.  Next, check with the company (not the delivery company) where you placed an order using your online account rather than an email. Again, don't click on links from within the email.

 

 If it's asking for money or personal information, it could be a scam. Check the address of the email sender and if it looks suspicious, ignore it. Watch out for generic greetings and grammatical errors.

HIDDEN: These ‘hidden mothers’ are easy to miss in pictures – yet, as soon as you spot them, it becomes impossible to unsee the head and shoulders, knees and legs of the adults beneath the brocade. And once you can no longer ignore her, you cannot believe you ever did not register that, of course, the infants are ensconced on their mother’s lap.

PILLOW Fighting;  Many of us remember pillow fighting at Macra events years ago; "The only difference between our fights and MMA fights is that nobody gets hurt," he said. "The fighters don't like to get hurt, and there's a lot of people who don't want to see the blood. They want to see good competition, they just don't want to see the violence."

 

The fact that so many people grew up bashing their siblings, friends and parents with pillows makes the sport relatable, which he hopes will help tap into a new audience.

 

"You can call it an alternative sport, but we think it's going to have mainstream appeal," he said.

ADVENT: History and Meaning of the Advent Wreath

 

The lights of the candles on the Advent Wreath break through the darkness, reminding us of the Light of Christ that we anticipate during this holy season of Advent. Like many of our Church traditions, the use of the Advent Wreath with its evergreens and its lighted candles finds its origins in pagan tradition and ritual. “Pre-Germanic peoples used wreaths with lit candles during the dark and cold of winter as signs of hope in the future warmth and lengthening sunlit days of spring. Similarly, Scandinavians lit candles which were placed around a wheel, and prayers were offered to the god of light to turn the wheel of the earth back toward the sun to lengthen the days and restore warmth.” In the middle ages, Germanic peoples began incorporating a lighted wreath into the Christian season of Advent. It didn’t gain widespread popularity until the 1800s.

 

 

 

The Advent Wreath is symbolic. The evergreens used for the wreath itself are reminders of life. Shaping them into a circle reinforces that meaning. The circle is also a sign of everlasting life as well as the eternity of God.

 

 

 

The four candles used, three purple and one rose, mark the Sundays of Advent before Christmas. The purple candles are reminders that this should be a time of prayer and sacrifice to prepare us for the second coming of Christ. On the third Sunday, the rose candle is lit to announce Gaudete Sunday, (Gaudete means rejoice) a Sunday of rejoicing for Christ’s coming is near. With the lighting of that third candle, brightness is growing and the darkness is being overcome.

 

A fifth and larger white candle in the centre represents Christ. It is lit on Christmas Eve as a declaration that Christ has come into the world and the darkness is vanquished utterly.

 

The Advent Wreath serves as a powerful visual reminder of the holiness of the season. The light of the candles invites us to quiet ourselves during this busy time and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas. It provides an invitation to wait and pray in hopeful anticipation for the coming of Christ. We are called to welcome the light of Christ into our lives.

SAINT Nicholas (c 270-343) – Feast Day 6 December

 

Saint Nicholas was the original Santa Claus!  He was noted for his holiness, kindness and generosity and lived in modern Turkey where he was born c270 into a wealthy family at Patara.  He became bishop of Myra in the south of the country early in the 4th century and was bishop of that area for about 30 years.  After his death in the year 343, Saint Nicholas was buried in Myra.  Over 700 years later in 1087 when Muslims invaded the area, some Christians brought his relics to Bari in the south of Italy to keep them safe.  Some relics are also believed to have been brought by some Normans the following century to Ireland to Jerpoint Abbey near Thomastown, Co Kilkenny.  As well as being patron saint of children, Saint Nicholas is also patron saint of sailors and fishermen.

Now for the first time in our planet’s history, Earth is going to hit back.

 

At 6:40 a.m. GMT on November 24, a NASA mission called DART (Double Asteroid Redirection Test) is scheduled to launch from Vandenberg Space Force Base, California, to embark on a nearly year-long voyage around the sun. If all goes well, DART’s journey will end on the evening of September 26, 2022, when the golf cart-size spacecraft will intentionally slam into a little, unsuspecting asteroid called Dimorphos.

 

Dimorphos is a harmless space potato, a 525-foot-wide “moonlet” that orbits a bigger asteroid called Didymos every 11 hours and 55 minutes. DART’s mission is to smash into Dimorphos at roughly 15,000 miles an hour, altering the moonlet’s orbit around its parent body. The name Dimorphos, Greek for “having two forms,” was chosen because the asteroid will have one form before DART and one form after.

8 Jan 1915 ?

 

The Death of Mr John Bolton -Sills?, which occurred at his residence, Lixnaw, on December 8 , removes a personality of the old type. He was a true Nationalist, and was a prominent figure in the days of the land struggle. He was one of the best farmers in North Kerry, and his death, at he age of 74 year will be much regretted by a large circle of friends

 

-----------------------------------------

 

After requiem mass at Ballybunion, the Most Rev. Dr. Mangan presiding, the remains were laid to rest, in presence of a large attendance of the clergy and the public, of the late Very Canon Molyneux , P.P.., V.G. During the procession through the town the blinds in many private residences and business establishments were drawn. His gentle manner, his care for his parishioners, and his labours for them in general endeared him to his flock.

 

-------------------------------------

 

News has reached Tipperary of the death at the front of Constable Thos. Keating, R I. C. Deceased, a native of Kerry, was very popular among his comrades at home and the people in general. He was a reservist in the Irish Guards.

 

--------------------------

 

Corporal M. Riordan, of the Irish Guards, writing to his brother William, who resides at Kealduve, Glenbeigh, Kerry, from an hospital In Leicester, where he is recovering from a wound in the leg, says the saddest sights at the front are the civilians, who rather die than leave their homes, while cows go unmilked and unfed, or let out of house get killed by shot or shell.

 

Twelve more wounded soldiers have arrived at Glenbeigh, which makes a total of 32 there at present. The men were given enthusiastic welcome, and Father Lynch, addressing the gathering in Irish and French, gave the visitors a cordial welcome, paid a tribute to their Indomitable, courage, and expressed the deep sympathy of all with them In their sufferings. Mr O’Donnell M. P,? also associated himself with the welcome to the Belgians.

 

----------------------------------

 

The Rev. Father Kelly and the Rev. Father Hayes, Newcastlewest, in response to a deputation, which, headed by the members of the Irish National Foresters, Drapers' Assistants, G. A A. sections of the Irish National Volunteers, and the Castlewest brass and reed band, waited on them on Sunday evening, consented to continue to act as chairman and treasurer, respectively, of that branch of the Irish National Volunteers.

Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Professor Charles Harvey and Fuu Ming Kai, a former postdoc from the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology, worked in collaboration with researchers from the University of California at Irvine to publish a paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, where they discuss radiocarbon measurements on the Indonesian fires and confirm that the smoke is originating from burning peatlands, rather than the popular belief of deforestation and waste burning.

 

 

 

Harvey and Kai, who have been conducting research in the region since 2014, sampled and carbon dated the carbonaceous aerosol from September of 2014 to October of 2015. The results of their study found that the carbon level of the smoke plume had an intermediate age ranging from 1,000 to 3,000 years old. This confirmed that approximately 85 percent of the smoke was come from burning peatlands.

 

 

 

Tropical peatlands may contain as much carbon as the amount consumed in nearly a decade of global fossil fuel use, and raging peat fires in Indonesia alone have been estimated in some years to contribute 10 to 40 percent as much greenhouse gas to the atmosphere as all the world’s fossil fuel burning.

CARBON: world's wealthiest 1% produce double the combined carbon emissions of the poorest 50%, according to the UN. (Break)

 

“These are people who fly most, drive the biggest cars most and live in the biggest homes which they can easily afford to heat, so they tend not to worry if they’re well insulated or not.

 

“They’re also the sort of people who could really afford good insulation and solar panels if they wanted to.”

 

Prof Newell said that to tackle climate change, everyone needs to feel part of a collective effort – so that means the rich consuming less to set an example to poorer people.

 

He continued: “Rich people who fly a lot may think they can offset their emissions by tree-planting schemes or projects to capture carbon from the air. But these schemes are highly contentious and they’re not proven over time.

 

The wealthy, he said, “simply must fly less and drive less. Even if they own an electric SUV that’s still a drain on the energy system and all the emissions created making the vehicle in the first place”.

FOOD Banks; A study by Food Bank for New York City reported that nearly 75% of emergency food providers (EFPs), such as pantries and food banks, saw dramatic increases in demand for service during the early days of the pandemic. A major cause: the business lockdowns that forced widespread unemployment.

 

Sister Caroline describes how food is distributed from St. John’s Bread & Life to “guests” in Brooklyn and a few spots in Queens.

 

But according to the report, 38% of the food providers suddenly closed because of social-distancing protocols. In Brooklyn, for example, the list of EFPs in operation shrunk from 257 to 164 as protocols continued, a loss of 93. Queens had 170, but lost 65, leaving 105 with open doors.

 

“In almost 90% of the cases, whether it’s a parish-based one or a small organization, it was volunteers who were doing the actual work,” Sister Caroline said.

FACE MASK: this study is to determine the effects of prolonged usage of N95 respirators and surgical facemasks amid health care workers in our institution. Cross-sectional study. SRM medical college hospital, Kattankulathur. A self-constructed questionnaire containing 20 queries regarding the effects of prolonged use of face masks, after being analysed by the experts of our institution were handed over to 250 participants.. All participants wore either surgical masks or N95 respirators for a minimum of 4 h per day. People aged between 20 and 48 years were selected for this study. Study period was from 20/07/2020 to 26/07/2020. Completed questionnaires were sent for statistical analysis. A total of 250 healthcare workers participated in the study, out of which 179 were females. The acquired results were excessive sweating around the mouth accounting to 67.6%, difficulty in breathing on exertion 58.2%, acne 56.0% and itchy nose 52.0%. This study suggests that prolonged use of facemasks induces difficulty in breathing on exertion and excessive sweating around the mouth to the healthcare workers which results in poorer adherence and increased risk of susceptibility to infection.

PRESENTATION SISTERS IN KILLARNEY 1793—2021: It is with great sadness that we bid farewell to the Presentation Nuns. For nearly 230 years they have followed the example of their foundress Nano Nagle and lived their vocations as religious sisters among us. They have been best know for their ministry as teachers in their primary and secondary schools, but  their  ministry  extended  further  in  the  parish  community  -  in  the sacristies  and  the  choirs,  as  cantors  and  organists,  as  readers  and Eucharistic Ministers, training altar servers etc, as well as their ministry in adult faith formation, their outreach to individuals and families, and most of all as a powerhouse of prayer in the parish. May the Lord reward them for their goodness.  We give thanks that their great  foundations  will

 

Continue in St Brigid’s Secondary School, and we pray God’s blessing on the Sisters and Presentation Order into the future.

VIKINGS weren't who we thought they were- 08 November 2021|Science

 

Vikings are often thought of as 'pure-bred', blonde-haired, and blue-eyed warriors who changed the course of European history. Now a team of international scientists has debunked this modern-day myth of the Vikings by examining their genetic ancestry.

100 YEARS AGO: Connecting 20s People 100 years on

 

A global pandemic, rapidly developing technology, uncertainty in the world – does that sound like an accurate description of today? Would it surprise you to know that would also fit as a description of 100 years ago? To tie in with the release of the 1921 Census of England and Wales in January 2022, our 20sPeople programme will explore and share stories connecting the people of the 1920s with us in the 2020s. This exciting programme will feature a new 1920s-themed exhibition at The National Archives, along with a variety of online and in-person events, activities and digital content, which aim to show what we can learn by connecting with those who have gone before us.

AXPC often teams up with the Independent Petroleum Association of America, an industry trade association with a record of anti-climate lobbying, to write letters to members of Congress and weigh in on regulatory proposals. In comments submitted to EPA in July on the upcoming methane rule, IPAA challenged the findings of the methane emissions analysis that MJB&A conducted for Ceres and the Clean Air Task Force. The industry group claimed that the report is part of a broader effort by environmental groups to “tar low production wells and the small businesses that operate them.”

 

IPAA guards its membership, but a partial list that the nonprofit Western Values Project obtained in 2018 shows that AXPC, Shell and Pioneer are all members of the organization.

===============================

 

Pope Francis, in the speech he sent to the COP, said that we are basically in a post-world war situation. Continuing with that allegory: Who would be the Allies and who would be the Axis?

 

 

 

What matters in climate change is historical emissions. The United States, historically, burned much more than China. Today China burns a little bit more, but they have three times more people. The main problem is the rich countries, but the issue is much more complicated. There are many countries in the Axis. The Allies, in fact, are small countries and poor countries such as the Philippines, Bangladesh, several African countries, and the Pacific Islands. They have a coalition, Climate Vulnerable Forum, and though they did not contribute anything to climate change, this crisis is today killing them.

 

 

 

For instance, Madagascar today has one million people at risk of starvation, and it is the first famine that is 100 percent a result of the climate crisis. And nobody is talking about this crisis. And it is a country with subsistence agriculture, where a severe drought kills.

 

 

 

I insist, there are many countries in the Axis, but by far, those who have more responsibility are Europe, North America, Australia, and Japan. Of these, Europe is the best, and Australia the worst. Which is ironic, because Australia is being devastated by climate change.

“Every day in England there are 165 new antibiotic resistant infections due to ‘super bugs’ and for many of these infections we won’t have viable alternative treatments, so we all need to take action to keep antibiotics working to save lives.

 

“Taking antibiotics encourages potentially harmful bacteria that live inside you to become resistant, meaning antibiotics are less likely to work for you in the future. They can also cause side effects, such as diarrhoea.

FLOODING; Precipitation from atmospheric rivers is thought to contribute about 20% of the Earth’s total water flow. In some regions, particularly the east and west coast of North America, south-east Asia and New Zealand, this can be more than 50%.

 

However, atmospheric rivers are also linked to dramatic weather events such as the torrential rain that has led to devastating flooding in southern British Columbia and north-western Washington state on Monday. This weather event was driven by an atmospheric river, known as “the Pineapple Express” that funnels warm water vapour from near Hawaii to the US west coast.

Washington, 09 November, 2021 / 8:00 pm (ACI Africa).

 

Seton Hall University and the Catholic University of South Sudan have entered into a partnership aimed at fostering student and faculty exchanges, joint research efforts, and other initiatives.

 

The two schools announced the collaborative effort Nov. 3, bringing together one of the oldest Catholic universities in the U.S., located in South Orange, New Jersey, and a 13-year-old Catholic university located in one of the poorest and most war-torn countries in the world.

 

“For a university rich of tradition and records of excellence to partner with a new emerging and promising university is no doubt motivated by the genuine spirit of fraternity and solidarity of Catholic Universities of the universal Church,” Bishop Eduardo Hiiboro Kussala of the Diocese of Tombura-Yambio, said in a prepared statement.

CARBON: Meath trial farm aims for ‘carbon-neutral’ beef. “Beef cattle on multi-species swards were slaughtered earlier and consistently grew at 20% higher growth rates throughout the grazing season, and were brought to beef earlier as a result,” Connie added.

 

    “When fertiliser reduction coupled with animal-performance improvements are compared, we have reduced our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the farm by about 30% after one year alone. “And that does not take into account the accelerated soil sequestration going on beneath the multi-species swards compared to ryegrass only,” she outlined.

BIODIESEL: This latest report was only published after numerous requests for ‘access to documents’ by industry and civil society and was eventually released too late to influence a now-closed public consultation on the EU Renewable Energy Directive.

 

Now the latest figures indicate that land-use change (LUC) emissions from biodiesel produced from palm oil is responsible for 231 grammes of carbon dioxide equivalent per megajoule of final energy – more than four times greater than estimated just five years ago and 2.5 times the total lifecycle emissions of fossil diesel. LUC emissions from biodiesel from soy are almost three times higher than the previous estimate. Biodiesel made from virgin vegetable oil is expected to have a 70% share in Europe’s biofuel market in 2020.

 BOOK: Looking Ahead with Hope’ is a collection of short pieces written by Eddie Gilmore over a three-year period in the course of his work as CEO for the London-based Irish Chaplaincy. The book is a weaving together of visits to such places as prisons, care homes and monasteries with travels further afield: pilgrimage on the Camino in Spain, walking retreats in the French Alps, and meetings and events in Ireland.

 

The author finds joy and meaning whilst playing guitar to a large gathering of people in an Alpine cave, or to a group of Travellers in a prison; but equally whilst sitting on a bench at the bottom of the garden drinking a cup of tea and watching the sunset, and in the many small and hidden moments of encounter or discovery. There are stories of wonder, reflections on faith and on the human condition, and a frequent refrain of gratitude, and of hope.

 

The final chapters are written against the backdrop of the huge impacts to our lives of the coronavirus and the resulting uncertainty but it ends with a surprising and simple, and yes hopeful, conclusion.

 

The Book is released on October 29th and can be ordered directly from the publisher, DLT: https://www.dartonlongmantodd.co.uk/titles/2342-9781913657420-looking-ahead-with-hope

NORTH KERRY As regards the question of employment it must be stated that, as a whole, there is no lack in the rural district of the Listowel Union—a fact which may he attributed to the large number of the young men of the country who joined the army since the outbreak of the war and went to Great Britain to work in the munitions factories; but there is no doubt, what-ever, there is a keenly felt want of employment in Listowel town, both for labourers and artisans, more particularly those connected with the building trades. Equally so there is no doubt that there is a great pressure on those classes owing to the enormous Increase in the prices of food. Milk, which was sold In the summer months at 8d per gallon, has, since the first of September, been raised to Is per gallon, an increase which will be very greatly felt by the poorer members of the community, while butter, at Is 6d wholesale, and Is 8d retail, is altogether beyond their purchasing powers. Another thing that operates against householders in the town is the rate, which is generally about twice as high as in the rural district. Then, in making a comparison between pre-war and present day prices, we have it that butter is nearly twice what it was: meat from 50 to 80 per cent dearer, for instance, American bacon, which in pre-war times sold at 6d and 7d per lb, is now purchasable at Is and 1s Id per lb., while beef and mutton are but very sparsely used by the general run of the community. ----------------------------------

 

Limerick; At present there is no dearth of employment In Abbeyfeale, Athea. Templeglantine and adjoining district, and in some instances farmers have raised the usual weekly wage a little to assist in meeting the extra price of the ordinary necessaries of life. Labourers with large young families are the only-class strained to unite ends, as others are enabled to send their children from the ages of 10 or 12 into service to the famers, and so assist their parent.--, to tide over the periods of unemployment usually December, January and February. Servants who contract with farmers for 9 or 10 months' service usually receive from 6s. to 8s. 6d. weekly, together with, board and lodgings.

Ms Walinga said that among her roles as a CHV is training pregnant women and new mothers on nurturing care for early childhood development.

 

 

 

She said the main objective of the nurturing care project is to ensure children in the county survive, thrive, and develop to their maximum potential when they are between zero and three years.

 

 

 

“We teach them how to communicate with their babies when they are still in the womb and also how to talk and play with them after birth for the first three years. This is important for brain development,” she said.

‘Clear Danger’

 

 

 

John Klink, who was a Holy See negotiator at the Environmental Summit in Rio in 1992 and played a key role in the Church’s pro-life battles at other major U.N. discussions in the 1990s, told the Register Oct. 25 he sees a “clear danger” that billions of dollars committed to the Green Climate Fund — a U.N. body aimed at financing developing nations to adapt to, and counter, climate change — “will be funneled to abortion providers.”

 

 

 

He also pointed out that the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA) is linking programs to reduce the impact of climate change on Africa with universal access to abortion and contraception under the guise of “reproductive health.”

 

 

 

The U.N. agency says its aim is to build “climate resilience” — “the latest nomenclature to be used by an ever-voracious UNFPA and its pro-abortion allies to access international governmental and U.N. swill,” Klink said.

 

 

 

Stefano Gennarini, vice president for legal studies at the Center for Family and Human Rights (C-Fam), an organization lobbying the U.N. on pro-life issues, noted “a resurgence of population control internationally in recent years,” including after the 2015 Paris Agreement. “Many Catholics, especially those who work on the development and climate policy, remain unaware or not sufficiently concerned about this,” he told the Register. “It would be helpful if the Holy See were to often repeat Pope Francis’ concern with population control in Laudato Si.”

 

 

 

The Holy Father warned in his 2015 environment encyclical against “blaming population growth” for environmental damage “instead of extreme and selective consumerism on the part of some,” saying it is “one way of refusing to face the issues.”

C19; As the second year of the coronavirus pandemic rolls on, many, particularly in the comparatively well-vaccinated US and Europe, have become inured to coronavirus statistics and record-breaking case totals. The internet appeals across India not only demonstrate the severity of the crisis, but also personalize it by focusing on an individual person’s struggle for assistance — a powerful reminder that coronavirus is as present as ever, and just as deadly, in 2021.

GREEN: Eat locally or at home, take your lunch in reusable containers, use reusable utensils and a cloth napkin. Extra waste comes from doing big shops, and putting two-for-one bargains in the trolley. Whole-animal eating is respecting the animal enough to realise that, if it has died for you, you can make use of every part of it. Recycle kitchen scraps, in a compost bin. Stop using plastic bottle and paper cups by going for reusable options. Look for loose fruit and vegetables.

 

Plant a tree in memory of a loved one. Some house plants remove formaldehyde released from carpets and furniture. Try going paperless. Repurpose your items.

 

Instead of turning on lights and lamps, save the planet by using natural light whenever possible.

 

Being active outside is a great way to reduce your daily use of electricity and get a daily dose of vitamin D. Research local events in your area that contribute to or promote sustainability.

 

No need for tech toys every year. Have the heater is a few degrees lower. Then, use more blankets.

 

Use washing machine, dishwasher, and other household appliances less often, wait for full load. Take showers instead of baths. Beware modern, pumped power showers can use more, not less, water than bathing it is claimed. Only use the standby mode when you’re sure you’ll get back soon. By cleaning and maintaining your white goods, you will prolong their life. Shut off the water when brushing your teeth. Walk, or cycle, Use motor vehicles only when needed. Reusing furniture.

CARBON: Many are commenting that the government and the council are avoiding making carbon cuts for themselves. Farmers must get recognition for the trees that they plant and the hedges that they grow. “At the minute within the national inventories, all the benefits associated with this activity go directly to society,” he said.    “The carbon that is locked up by grass, trees and hedges must be allowed to offset the emissions produced by animals on farms. This is not the case at the moment. https://www.agriland.ie/farming-news/ufu-to-attend-cop26-climate-summit-in-glasgow/

 

It is claimed that 100 global companies are responsible for 71% of global emissions.  

 

CSO: Milk prices increased in 2020 and, with output expanding by 3.9%, the value of milk production grew by €144.1 million (5.5%), from €2.6 billion to just under €2.8 billion.

 

GROWTH: GlaxoSmithKline turnover grew by 5% to £9.1 billion in the third quarter.

 

MORE: School books are dumped, Farmers are being forced by regulations to erect buildings etc and in a few years will be idle, rather than repair, many items are disposed, fashion and advertising contribute to global warming and should carry a warning.

 

CLIMATE finance plays a critical role in helping developing countries tackle climate change and adapt to its impacts. In 2009, developed countries agreed to mobilise $100bn in climate finance per year by 2020, and in 2015 agreed to extend this goal through to 2025.

 

However, the UK COP26 Presidency now says the $100bn goal is likely to fall short in 2021 and 2022 - though is confident it will be met in 2023.

 

Mohamed Nasheed, the former president of the Maldives, said: "To provide confidence and momentum going into COP26, the $100bn climate finance goal must be met immediately, not in 2023.

Oral histories called the Icelandic Sagas depict a Viking presence in the Americas. Written down centuries later, they describe a leader named Leif Erikson and a settlement called Vinland, as well as violent and peaceful interactions with the local peoples, including capturing slaves.

 

The 1021 date roughly corresponds to the saga accounts, Dee said, adding: "Thus it begs the question, how much of the rest of the saga adventures are true?"

MISSION: We cannot but speak..... (Fr. Michael P.O’ Sullivan, Intercom October 2021.)

 

After the first World War, Pope Benedict XV invited Catholics to bring light to a world devasted by conflict. By virtue of their baptism, all Catholics were called to be missionary minded, and missionaries needed to be men and women of God. His successor Pope Pius X1 made the second last Sunday of October a day dedicated to ‘the missions’ that is a special day to pray for and assist missionaries in their call to ‘go out to the whole world and proclaim the Good News’. Over a century has passed since this missionary call gave a fresh impetus to the Church to ‘go out to the whole world.’

RETROFIT: The Deep Retrofit of a home means carrying out multiple energy upgrades all at once to achieve a BER of A-rating. Firstly, you will need to reduce the level of heat loss so that you keep heat in the home for longer. This involves some or all of the following: wall insulation, roof insulation, floor insulation, window upgrades. The next step is to look at an efficient renewable heating system to support the transition away from fossil fuels. The typical heating system installed on a Deep Retrofit Pilot Project is an air-source heat pump.  It also includes mechanical ventilation to maintain good indoor air quality. Other renewable energy technologies such as solar water heating panels and solar photovoltaic panels may be appropriate for your home.

As for Pius V, he credited the Lord and the intercession of the Blessed Mother, in the dual roles of Our Lady of Victory and Our Lady of the Rosary. As de Mattei details, at the very hour of the victory on Oct. 7, far away from the high seas, Pius V had had an inspiration — something had filled him a certain sense that the Holy League had persevered. “Let us go and thank God,” he told his cardinals assembled, “because at this very moment our armada has obtained victory.”

 

 

 

It had indeed, though official confirmation did not arrive until two weeks later, late at night via courier. Awakened in the middle of the night, the Pope broke out in tears of joy and invoked the words of Simeon: “Lord, now let your servant depart in peace” (Luke 2:29).

 

 

 

Six months later, the 68-year-old Pontiff, only six years into his papacy, departed this life in peace.

 

 

 

The whole ordeal took its toll on the Pope as well as the world. And our world today would look very different if not for what happened at Lepanto 450 years ago this October.

October 13, 2021

 

 

 

The Year of St. Joseph has already had its liturgical highpoints — the Feast of the Holy Family last December, the Solemnity of St. Joseph himself in March and the Memorial of St. Joseph the Worker in May. Then there are the infancy feasts of Jesus where Joseph is present: Christmas, Epiphany, the Presentation in the Temple. There is even a lesser known feast of the “Holy Espousals” of Joseph and Mary (Jan. 23).

 

 

 

But Oct. 13 is another day to think about St. Joseph. That was the day of the final apparition at Fatima in 1917, the “miracle of the sun” witnessed by some 70,000 people. It was a terrifying vision of the sun veering from its orbit in the sky, spinning and careening in such fashion as that many present thought the end of the world was upon them.

COLLECTION: Bishops are asking parishes throughout Ireland to undertake a special Church collection on 6 and 7 November to invite the public to support Trócaire in its work to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in East Africa. Bishops also discussed that in the countries where Trócaire works, less than 5% of the population have been vaccinated for Covid and infection rates are up to 50%.  An additional 200 million people have fallen into poverty globally as a result of the Covid crisis.  Bishops highlighted that wealthier countries, while protecting their most vulnerable citizens, also have a moral responsibility to ensure that the populations of developing countries have equal, rapid and effective access to Covid vaccine coverage. For more on Trócaire’s East Africa appeal see www.trocaire.org.

TRIBUTE; Bridget Ann Joyce, 76, in recent years of Holmes, NY and long-time resident of Lake Carmel, NY, passed away on September 28, 2021.

 

Bridget was born on March 29, 1945 to John and Ellen or ‘Nell’ (Mulvihill) McAuliffe in Moyvane, county Kerry, Ireland.

 

As a child, many adventures were shared playing make-believe in the fields near their home with her siblings and cousins of Moyvane.  With a deep imagination and a love of storytelling, Bridie- as she was known to all- along with her brother John, would imagine themselves famous radio announcers ‘Paddy and Jack’, or private investigators.  She loved to try her hand at repairing bikes and other mechanical things.  She also spent some time living in Glin, Limerick with her aunt, uncle and grandmother.  She had a natural wit and the gift of humor, sharing many of these early stories from Ireland with us in America.

 

As a young woman, Bridie came to America with her sister Marie in 1960 and lived on Valentine Ave in the Fordham section of the Bronx, joining her parents.  Later, her brother John and sister Rita would also come out to America.  Bridie attended Roosevelt High School and afterwards joined Merrill Lynch on Wall Street.  She loved attending the Irish dance halls such as “The Red Mill” and “The Jaeger House”, with Marie.  She was very close to her Aunts and especially enjoyed many shopping trips to Macys with her Aunt Jule who lived in Parkchester.

 

She met and married her life-long partner, Patrick Joyce, on August 14, 1965.  Saving and working hard to purchase their first home, they accomplished this in 1971, when they found a two-family house on Decatur Ave (near her Uncle, Martin Mulvihill, well-known musician & composer of Irish music).  The first in the family to own a home,  Bridie was overjoyed and so proud of the accomplishment.  Soon after, they were blessed with five wonderful children.

 

They lived in the Bainbridge neighborhood of the Bronx before moving to Carmel, NY in 1979. 

 

Bridie also worked as a Home Care Assistant as well as in local nursing facilities and as  a bus monitor for a number of years at Red and Tan Lines in Carmel, NY.

 

Family was important to her and she was a devoted wife, mother and grandma.  Bridie adored all her grandchildren and felt blessed by each new addition.  She was gifted at making delicious dishes for family occasions and holidays.  She always welcomed many children into her home and would feed half the neighborhood if given the chance.  Bridie was also known for helping others out when in need.  One time she took under her roof a student from Glin, Co. Limerick who came out to New York to attend college and find work.  Bridie treated him like family and never expected anything in return.  To this day, he would call her and love to spend time chatting & reminiscing on the time he spent in her home in the Bronx.  Bridie also took in her youngest sister, Rita, when their parents retired back to Co. Kerry in 1972.  Rita lived with her for over a year until finding an apartment of her own. 

 

Bridie loved animals, having many pet dogs over the years, such as Gilda, Lady, and Inky and Binky (aka Little Mama and Little Papa).

 

Bridie loved collecting and wearing decorative jewelry, attending many outdoor markets for fun.  Her musical tastes ran from Irish songs, to Elvis and 1950’s music.  She had an outgoing nature and was more recently a friend to all at the nursing home where she lived.  She loved reading mystery and detective novels and having visits from family and friends, especially her sister, Rita.

 

Bridget is survived by her beloved husband Patrick, and her children, Delia, Cormac (and Melissa), Conor (and Sharon) Joyce, and her cherished grandchildren, Aidan, Brendan, Samantha, Julianna, Maya, Natalya, Alex and Sophie.  Her loving sister, Rita  (McAuliffe) Romano also survives her.  Sadly, she is predeceased by two beloved sons, Sean and Patrick Joyce, and two siblings, Marie Moran and John McAuliffe.  She leaves behind many cherished nieces and nephews as well.

 

Bridie was a deeply religious Catholic who endlessly offered up prayers and good intentions for those in need.  Bridie will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

 

Visitation will be from 1:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M. on Sunday, October 3, 2021 at Cargain Funeral Home, 10 Fowler Avenue, Carmel, NY. 

 

A prayer service to celebrate and honor Kimberly's life will take place at 4:30 P.M. on Sunday, October 3, 2021 at Cargain Funeral Home in Carmel, NY. 

 

A private cremation will follow.

 

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in Bridget’s memory to National Breast Cancer Foundation (https://www.nationalbreastcancer.org/).

ADVENTURES of Sr M. Juliana Culhane in July 1922, Part 1

 

by Marian McGreal SSL, coordinator

 

The scene - in St Louis Convent, Louisville, Monaghan. I was a boarder there from 1919 to 1922. I came with an inlaw of my Auntie’s, Maria Brosnan, a sister of Con Brosnan – the famous Kerry footballer. I loved the place. The Sisters were very kind to us. Sr M. Laurentia was the Mistress of Schools then. At that time there was Junior, Middle, and Senior Grade (in the Inter Exams). I did Middle Grade in June 1922. The times, due to the 1922 Civil War, were very disturbed. The exams for some, ended about June 18th and Sr M. Laurentia did her best with information from Headquarters in Dublin, to send the girls home safely. But some of the subjects like Art, Commerce etc. dragged on, and it was well on in June by the time about 30 or 35 of us were finished. We were all set in great form for going home, when the news came, urgently from Dublin that there was trouble in the city and that there was no means of travelling for any girls from the south. No trains running from Dublin to Limerick or Cork, or from Dublin to Waterford. So there we were about twenty of us “all dressed up an nowhere to go.” I often think what the poor sisters felt like with us crowd on their hands! Then just before the news from Dublin had come I had been making plans how I would spend my holiday, as I had made up my mind to enter September 8th. Well we just had to make the best of a bad matter and be grateful to God and the Srs that we were safe and sound with them. Then bright and fair one morning Sr M. Laurentia got word that the city was quiet, and that we could get to Dublin, but no trains to the south. Well, God was good to me, I had a pal, Margaret Fleming from Castleisland, Kerry. She luckily had a cousin in Dublin married to a D.M.P. [Dublin Metropolitan Police] man, and she made me come with her. I forgot their names, but they had the greatest sympathy for us, were so good to us. The D.M.P Inspector had a heart of gold. He knew well that our relatives would be in a very bad way about us, no means of sending a wire or letter. So the good and kind man went out every morning and found out if there was any chance of a train to the south. So, praise to the good God, he came back in haste one morning and said that there was a train going to Waterford in an hours’ time that we could also get a connection to Mallow that same day. Well, in two shakes of a lambs tail he had us across the city, and just in time for the Waterford train. It was like a passport to Heaven to get that train!! The good D.M.P. man wished us the best of luck. Thank God we got to Waterford in time to catch the train to Mallow.
