FEAST of Ss. Peter & Paul the Apostles is celebrated on Wed. 29th June.

 

SAINT Oliver Plunkett – Feast Day: 1st July, Saint Oliver Plunkett is believed to have been born on 1st November 1625 in Lough Crew, Co Meath. His family was from Irish nobility and supported King Charles 1 of England. He went to Rome to study for the priesthood at the Irish College and was ordained a priest there on 1st January 1654. He became a Professor of Theology in Rome from 1654 until 1669. He was appointed Archbishop of Armagh in 1669 and returned to Ireland the following year. He was forced to conduct a covert ministry during the suppression of priests at that time in the seventeenth century. He was arrested and tried at Dundalk in 1679 for conspiring against the state. It was seen that Oliver would never be convicted in Ireland so he was moved to Newgate Prison in London. Saint Oliver Plunkett was found guilty of high treason for “promoting the Catholic faith” and was condemned to a gruesome death. He was martyred on 1st July 1681 at Tyburn by hanging, disembowelling, quartering and beheading. He was the last Catholic to die for his faith at Tyburn and the first of the Irish martyrs to be beatified. His body was initially buried in two tin boxes next to five Jesuits who had died before him; his head is in St. Peter’s Church in Drogheda, Co Louth, most of his body is at Down Abbey, England and some relics are elsewhere in Ireland. His beatification took place on 23rd May 1920 and he was canonised on 12th October 1975.

St. Columba’s 1,500-year-old legacy includes this new Scottish Catholic pilgrimage

 

St. Columba, also known as St. Colmcille, was born in Ireland on Dec. 7, 521. He studied at several monasteries and became a priest. He spent 15 years in Ulster traveling, preaching and founding monasteries. He left Ireland in 563. One account of his life says he left simply in order to preach the Word of God. Another account says he had become complicit in a war between feuding tribes and then repented of his sins, taking on foreign missionary work as a penance.

 

He died June 9, 597, on what is now observed as his feast day.

REFUGEES: About 26.4 million people have fled their countries because of conflict, violence, persecution, or human rights violations.— 82.4 million — have been forcibly displaced from their homes, according to U.N. Refugee Agency (UNHCR). That number has doubled in the last decade. The previous spike in displacement occurred after World War II when 60 million people were left homeless.

 

An estimated 22.8 million Afghan people, more than half the country’s population, are facing potentially life-threatening levels of food insecurity and malnutrition this year.

Hot-water bottles and sleeping bags: can I get away with barely using any energy?

 

Energy prices will more than double this year. Turning off lights not in use, and running the washing machine and dishwasher at lower temperatures and always full can help claw some of that cost back. Also, switching off devices from the plug: up to 16% of energy bills are from appliances left on standby. Whole meals can be concocted in the microwave, and it’s cheaper to cook with than the oven (frugal tip: if you are using the oven, cook as much as you can in it, and then let the heat out to warm your home). Kettles are generally more efficient than boiling by hob, especially if you don’t overfill them. Some extreme frugallers boil the kettle once a day, keeping the water hot with flasks. My goal? Soft boiling an egg in the kettle. The result? Success! Even though the price I pay is getting a mouthful of egg in my tea because an earlier attempt cracked. (It is, apparently, safe to drink your used egg water, but some frugallers suggest the best use is to water your plants instead.)

On June 19, 1865, nearly 20,000 troops led by Union General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas. Granger read from Order No. 3, which informed the people of Texas that the remaining 250,000 slaves were to be freed and could begin working for wages. These slaves were among the very last in the country to hear the news of their freedom, two years after President Abraham Lincoln read his Emancipation Proclamation. The news was met with celebration across the state.

 

 

 

From that day forth, the day and its yearly celebrations were remembered as Juneteenth, America's other independence day.

By Sheila Pires

 

Juba, 22 June, 2022 / 8:50 pm (ACI Africa).

 

 

 

On the occasion of World Refugee Day marked Monday, June 20, a former refugee who fled war-torn South Sudan, has highlighted the role of the Catholic Church in general and Catholic missionaries in particular in his life journey.

 

In an interview with ACI Africa, world renowned Pulmonologist and author Dr. Emmanuel Malish Taban said, “God somehow planted all the Catholic missionaries along my way to aid my journey to where I am today.”

 

https://www.aciafrica.org/news/6123/god-planted-catholic-missionaries-to-aid-my-journey-former-south-sudanese-refugee?utm_campaign=ACI%20Africa&utm_medium=email&_hsmi=217414718&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-8FSlljJDNMhy_Y4zxLE6zqREjWMXT7mAprP1tx3Fe7tAEmfGLPGuyP6cOvswykp0NKMv59PbTRu3-LKOkT7VFnRzCmug&utm_content=217414718&utm_source=hs_email

 

 

 

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

 

The White House announced recently that the United States will recommit to an Obama-era initiative limiting the use of anti-personnel landmines (APL), which it said have a “disproportionate impact on civilians, including children, long after fighting has stopped.” The decision does not apply to the Korean Peninsula due to “unique circumstances,” but Bureau of Political-Military Affairs official Stanley Brown told reporters APLs haven’t been used by American forces in “any significant way” since the Gulf War.

 

 

 

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

 

TITANIC: Scholar Jess Bier examines what was done with those bodies and explains how their identification and treatment was wrapped up in their economic valuation. All the recovered dead were numbered for the records, but some counted a lot more than others. As she notes, “Decisions about which bodies to bury at sea were made largely according to the perceived economic class of the recovered victims, and those with third-class tickets were far more likely to be returned to the water.”

 

 

 

The Titanic’s microcosm of class distinctions are now infamous. “From the allegations that some steerage passengers were locked below decks, to the overwhelming better chances of survival for first-class passengers, such distinctions were assumed to be a natural part of society,” writes Bier. Class distinction also, it seems, extended beyond death. Bier contrasts the preservation and return of well-off victims with the rapid decomposition and burial at sea of the less well-off. Approximately one-third of the recovered bodies, some 114 of them, were returned to the very waters from which they’d been pulled.

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

 

Reflection; You can say so much with your hands,  To the sick it says – “Hold on, I am with you”.  To a close friend your handshake says – “it’s good to see you again” while to the stranger it says “Welcome, I am pleased to meet you..”  A hand can be a greeting or a wave of goodbye.  It can say thank you, good luck and deliver a whole host of other messages.  In truth, you can often say more with your hand than with any words.

 

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

 

I do my thing and you do your thing. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations and you are not in this world to live up to mine.  You are you and I am I. If by chance we find each other it will be beautiful.

 

 

 

REDUCING STRESS – Let other people do their own thing – you are not the General Manager of the Universe.

 

 

 

Patience is counting down without blast off.

 

 

 

Sympathy is never wasted except when you give too much to yourself.

 

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

 

THAT'S NOT MY JOB!

 

This is a story about four people: Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody.

 

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody

 

would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry

 

about that, because it was Everybody's job. Everybody thought Anybody could do

 

it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that

 

Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done!

 

NOW IS THE HOUR...

 

Why fear tomorrow, timid heart?

 

Why tread the future's way?

 

We only need do our part,

 

Today, dear heart, today.

 

The past is written. Close the book on pages sad and grey;

 

Within the future do not look, but live today - today.

 

This one hour God has given us; Him we must now obey

 

and it will make our earth His heaven,

 

If we live and love Him today - today.

Jesus, Lord and Saviour, you have shown us your love in your care for all, especially those in most need. We ask you to show this love for our family, those sick and well, at home and those away.

 

May we live in your heart, young and old in our family, As you make your home in the heart of each of us. Make strong our faith in you and in each other, Enliven our hope and make us joyful in love.

 

Protect us all and welcome home those of the family who have gone before us.

 

We pray this, in gratitude for our family life, And with the prayers of Mary, our Mother. Amen.- Fr Donal Neary.

SHOW in Charleville 25th and 26th of June, celebrating 41 years.

 

FATHER'S DAY REFLECTION

 

God took the strength of a mountain, The majesty of a tree,

 

The warmth of a summer sun, The calm of a quiet sea,

 

The generous soul of nature, The comforting arm of night,

 

The wisdom of the ages, The power of eagle's flight,

 

The joy of a morning in spring, The faith of a mustard seed,

 

The patience of eternity, The depth of a family need,

 

Then God combined these qualities, when there was nothing more to add,

 

He knew His masterpiece was complete, and so, He called it.......Dad.

BALLADS: Rhyming History: The War of Independence & the ballads of atrocity in The Valley of Knockanure

 

122 views  16 May 2021  “If a man were permitted to make all the ballads, he need not care who should make the laws of a nation”: Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun (1653-1716), Scottish patriot.

 

In this lecture poet and author Gabriel Fitzmaurice will draw together the threads of traditional lore and balladry with the steel-wire of factual evidence to explain the origins of the ballad ‘The Valley of Knockanure’ by the internationally acclaimed writer, Bryan MacMahon, who had been commissioned to do so in 1946 by Pádraig Ó Ceallacháin, a noteworthy activist in the cause for Irish Independence.

 

This is the fifth in a series of lectures organised by Kerry Writers' Museum as part of it's North Kerry War of Independence Centenary Commemoration Programme.  The lecture is supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Art, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media under the Decade of Centenaries Programme.

NIGERIA: “Terrorists are on free loose slaughtering, massacring, injuring, and installing terror in different parts of Nigeria since over eight years not because of any reasonable thing but because they are evil — period,” he commented.

 

The bishop, who has led the Diocese of Ondo since 2010, said that there was “a profound fear in every part of the country” due to widespread kidnappings, as well as attacks on churches, markets, and public transport.

 

 

 

He underlined that his flock understood the importance of protecting the environment, as set out in Pope Francis’ 2015 encyclical Laudato si’.

 

“While we are still mourning our loved ones after the horrible attack, I wish to appeal to those who are trying to take advantage of this horrific event to project any form of ideological agenda, to desist from such opportunism,” he said.

 

“I implore everyone to pray for Nigeria and indeed for peace in the world.”

 

“The victims of terrorism and indeed all the people of Nigeria would be thankful if world leaders propose fruitful ideas to the government of Nigeria on how to protect the citizens and make Nigeria a safe place to live.”

 

“This would be a better way of honoring the victims of hate and putting an end to the incessant killings in Nigeria.”

EXHIBITION “Protest!”, presented at the Gallery of Photography Ireland, looks at the role of photography in documenting the various political and social movements that have taken place in Ireland from the late 1960s to the present day. The exhibition focuses on the many fights the photographers have immortalized, from civil rights to “The Troubles,” economic issues, women’s and LGBTQIA+ or travellers’ rights, international movements for change, including pacifist movements, Black Lives Matter or #MeToo.

Everywhere it's tried, rent control harms the people it's meant to help. Yet foolish politicians continue to implement it.

 

Rent control once destroyed much of my town, New York. Because landlords couldn’t make money, some set fire to their own buildings to collect insurance.

 

The late economist Walter Williams once told me, "Short of aerial bombardment, the best way to destroy a city is through rent controls.”

FOOD loss and waste is estimated to be roughly one third of the food intended for human consumption in the United States. When food is discarded, all inputs used in producing, processing, transporting, preparing, and storing discarded food are also wasted. Food loss and waste also exacerbates the climate change crisis with its significant greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint. Production, transportation, and handling of food generate significant Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions and when food ends up in landfills, it generates methane, an even more potent greenhouse gas.

Jackie Lambert suspects that her habit of showering only every three days is unusual. “But I’m unapologetic for it because I think it’s fine,” she laughs. After all, a daily shower is more about cultural expectations than hygiene.

 

 

 

To be fair, Lambert’s whole lifestyle is on the unusual side. After she and her husband were made redundant in their early 50s, they decided to rent out their house in the coastal town of Bournemouth, UK, and move into a caravan with their four dogs for much of the year. At the moment, they’re in a village in the Italian Alps.

Excessive Usage of Water

 

 

 

     The fashion industry consumes one tenth of all of the water used industrially to run factories and clean products. To put this into perspective, it takes 10,000 liters of water  to produce one kilogram of cotton or approximately 3,000 liters of water for one cotton shirt. Furthermore, textile dyeing requires toxic chemicals that subsequently end up in our oceans. Approximately 20% of the wastewater worldwide is attributed to this process, which accumulates over time. As many  factories moved overseas as stated previously, they may be in countries without strict environmental regulations, resulting in untreated water to enter the oceans. Regrettably, the wastewater created is extremely toxic and in many cases, cannot be treated to become safe again.

POETRY:  Delmore Schwartz- 1913 (New York) – 1966

 

Delmore Schwartz was born in Brooklyn, New York, the son of Jewish Romanian immigrants. Schwartz offered a number of explanations for what John Ashbery once characterized as his “artificially English-sounding name Delmore.” According to Schwartz’s biographer, James Atlas, “sometimes he would insist he had been named after a delicatessen across the street from the house where he was born, sometimes that his mother had been fond of an actor who was named Frank Delmore. In still other versions, the name was taken from a Tammany Hall club, a Pullman railroad car, or a Riverside Drive apartment house.

NOVENA TO THE SACRED HEART – 16TH – 24TH JUNE.  

 

O divine Jesus who said “Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened to you.  I kneel at your feet.  From whom shall I ask if not from you, whose heart is the source of all blessings. O Divine Jesus your Heart was moved by compassion for the men and women who came to you in need.  You healed the sick, you forgave sinners.  You are the Way, the Truth, and the Life.  O Divine Jesus your heart is still full of compassion for us today in our many needs.  Assured of your love we turn to you and ask …(mention your requests).  I admit I am most unworthy of your favour, Jesus, but this is not a reason for me to be discouraged.   You are the God of mercies, and you will not refuse a contrite heart.  Look with pity on me, I beg you so that your compassionate heart will find in my weakness a motive for granting my request.   May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be everywhere loved.  Our Lady of the Sacred Heart pray for us.   Amen.

WAR: The Tablet

 

On June 8, 1972, Nick Ut was a Vietnamese photographer covering a battle 25 miles northwest of Saigon when he saw an attack bomber drop napalm on the village of Trảng Bàng.

 

Ut’s photo of a 9-year-old girl with outstretched arms was carried by his employer, The Associated Press. Titled “The Terror of War,” it won the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for Spot News Photography.

Trees like poplars can be used in what Kirkwood and Kennen call a “groundwater migration tree stand,” where the trees “modify the groundwater hydrology and keep contaminants from migrating.” These stands are commonly used for contaminants like trichloroethylene (TCE) and polychloroethlyene (PCE) that accompany military and industrial sites and are common dry-cleaning contaminants; petroleum at gas stations and refineries; and an overabundance of nutrients like nitrogen. They report poplar species including eastern cottonwood (P. deltoides) and trembling aspen (P. tremuloides) as notable remediative plants for their high biomass, fast growth, and—most importantly for capturing contaminants—deep tap roots and high evapotranspiration rates. With their groundwater-seeking roots, the trees can intercept contaminated water or be planted to draw groundwater away from a contaminant plume. High rates of evapotranspiration—the process by which water departs from the plant via the foliage—means the plant will move the water quickly, and hybrid poplars (along with fellow Salicaceae family member willows) are particularly adept at this.

Mayo's D-Day heroine receives special US honour

 

(Maureen Flavin Sweeney was born at Knockanure and is now 99 years.)

 

Updated / Sunday, 20 Jun 2021

 

By Teresa Mannion- Regional Reporter

 

 

 

A 98-year-old woman living in Co Mayo, has been given a special US House of Representatives honour in Belmullet this evening, for the role she played in changing the course of world history with her weather reports.

 

 

 

Maureen Sweeney, who is originally from Co Kerry, forecast an impending storm from Blacksod station in 1944 which changed the timing of the D-Day landings and ultimately secured victory for the Allies.

 

 

 

The remote Blacksod lighthouse and coastguard station played a key role during World War II supplying Britain with weather reports.

 

 

 

Ted and Maureen Sweeney were amongst those taking readings on an hourly basis, which were being secretly phoned into London.

 

 

 

At 1pm on 3 June 1944, 21-year-old Maureen was first to forecast a severe Atlantic storm, which led to a change of plan in one of the world's biggest military operations.

 

 

 

D-Day was postponed to 6 June and the rest is history.

 

 

 

Maureen's readings unwittingly gave the Allies two day advance warning of stormy conditions in western Europe, forcing General Dwight D Eisenhower to delay his meticulously planned invasion of Normandy.

 

 

 

Maureen's son, Vincent, is the lighthouse keeper at Blacksod Point and he recalled how she used rudimentary instruments and equipment to record weather data.

 

 

 

This was one of her duties in the little post office in Blacksod, which he described as "being a world away from the bloodshed and tragedy of the war".

 

 

 

Vincent said people in the area had no idea of the significance of the weather report and rather the part it was to play in the war.

 

 

 

Maureen Sweeney was honoured at Tí Aire nursing home in Belmullet.

 

 

 

A letter was read out from the World War II museum in New Orleans, Louisiana, as well as a personal note from US Congressman and retired 3-Star Admiral Jack Bergman (Michigan First District), who is the highest ranking veteran to ever serve in Congress.

 

 

 

The special recognition, which has been awarded since 1789, entitles Maureen to receive a proclamation noting her accomplishments, and will be placed in the US Library of Congress for perpetuity.

 

 

 

A special medal in recognition of Maureen's 'Laudable Actions' was placed on her lapel and there was music and poetry performed for Mayo's D-Day heroine.

 

 

 

Speaking in a recorded interview with her grandson Fergus Sweeney in 2014, Maureen said: "Eisenhower was making up his mind about whether to enter France or not. He was very divided but when he saw the report from Blacksod Point it confirmed he made the right decision.

 

Fergus Sweeney

 

 

 

"That report was sent from here on the 3rd June and the following morning there was a query at around 11 o'clock. And then was a second query. A lady with a distinct English accent requested me to 'Please Check. Please Repeat!' We began to look at the figures again. We checked and rechecked and the figures were the same both times so we were happy enough then".

 

 

 

Maureen added with pride, "they relied on our weather forecast. It’s something you’ll remember for a lifetime."

 

 

 

It was well over a decade before Maureen Sweeney and her family learned how that weather report helped turned the tide of World War II.

HARVESTING is taking place at a very rapid pace at present, all want job finished while weather is suitable. Land that received reduced fertiliser, is noticeable, in crop reduction.  The government is dragging their heels and shortly half the year is gone and little meaningful actions to encourage maximum home forage production. Conference on global warming will encourage reduced crop production and leave the vulnerable to die of malnourishment or reduce population by other means.

 

OLDER People and the government services, many who use the pen and paper are feeling vulnerable, when dealing with government departments. Isolation and abandonment, is the general feeling of people who use traditional means of contact, when things are delayed or left without reply, they can always blame foreign recruits.

The Vatican announced on Monday that Catholics can obtain a plenary indulgence by visiting an elderly person on the second World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly.

 

A decree issued by the Apostolic Penitentiary on May 30 said that the indulgence is available “to the faithful who devote adequate time to visit, in presence or virtually, through the media, their elderly brothers and sisters in need or in difficulty” on July 24.

 

The indulgence can also be gained by Catholics present at a solemn commemoration of the annual event by Pope Francis that day or at celebrations around the world.

Two Day EEC Meeting End

 

PARIS-The meeting of the heads of the EEC governments ended here with the announcement of a number of major decisions, among them the fixing of a Regional Fund of £542 million, the abolition of the right of veto on the Council of Ministers and its replacement by what is called a "qualified majority," direct elections to the European Parliament by 1978—and a plan to hold another "summit" meeting before the end of March next, this time in Dublin. Although some reservations were expressed on these decisions, and although agreement on the Fund came as something of an anti-climax after all the months of discussion, the talks ended amid cautious optimism on future economic co-operation among the Nine. The summit ended shortly before 11:00 o'clock Wed. and the French President, M. Giscard D'Estaing, who presided, read out the statement from the heads of government. He said that the talks have provided for other such meetings to be held three times a year and, if necessary, more often. Foreign Ministers will also meet along with heads of State. The aim of the meetings is eventual political co-ordination. The right of veto on the Council of Ministers is to be replaced by a "qualified majority"-in other words, it is hoped gradually to move away from the need for total unanimity at Council meetings. This means, of course, that the right of veto could no longer be used as a threat by any member country which feels it has a grievance. When plans were being made for the summit that has just ended, Ireland and Italy, worried over the delay in setting up the Regional Fund, threatened to veto the talks unless a decision was reached on regional aid. Another proposal arising from the two-day meeting was to have a plan for direct elections to the European Parliament ready by 1976, and to apply the direct voting system in 1978. The British and the Danes expressed reservations about this proposal. A working group was set up to establish possible union between the Nine on passports and to have a uniform passport for EEC countries with the general intention of establishing a "European Union." The summit statement also reaffirmed the aim of economic and monetary union. It was agreed that economic policies of the Nine should converge with the aim of preventing economic recession and restoring stability. Particular emphasis was placed on the German intention to adopt in a short time the re-launching of private and public investment. CONSULTATION On employment, there is to be consultation between the member countries and the social partners such as the trade unions in the various countries. The Ministers of Labour will be meeting in the near future. In regard to energy, the statement expressed the need for greater co-operation between importing and exporting countries. The Minister for Foreign Affairs, Dr. FitzGerald, said afterwards that the' summit had been significant on four particular counts; the adoption of a regional policy; the decision of the Germans to reflate their economy; the overcoming of the first obstacle in the efforts to ensure that British re-negotiation of terms will keep her in the community, and, finally, the improvement indicated by the French Government in  American-French relations, which should provide for greater solidarity and a better chance of dealing with the Arabs on oil resources. SIGNIFICANCE The Taoiseach, Mr. Cosgrave, said that the significance of the German decision to reflate the economy could only be realised if we appreciated the fact that the German surplus of balance of payment was equivalent to the deficit of all the member countries.

By the time RTS,S was approved, vaccines for another global killer, Covid-19, had already been developed and authorized around the world—less than two years after the virus emerged.

 

 

 

The apparent disparities have frustrated some researchers in sub-Saharan Africa. “If the same energy and resources were directed towards malaria vaccine development as has been the case for Covid-19, then malaria could be eradicated,” wrote Damaris Matoke-Muhia, a scientist at the Kenya Medical Research Institute, in an essay for the global development site SciDev.Net last August. (At the time, she noted, malaria was killing more people on the continent than Covid-19.)

T S Eliot; By Angelica Frey

 

When the inaugural issue of the prestigious literary magazine Criterion hit shelves in October 1922, it included a 434-line-long poem by a little-known American author who spent his days as a banker at Lloyd's. T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land, with its cacophony and bleakness, encapsulated in verse the spirit of modernism, much like Stravinsky had in music with Rite of Spring in 1913.

COVID-19 and Physical Activity; While the pandemic created universal, widespread lockdowns, research “conducted all over the world on cohorts of patients with COVID-19 have shown that the risk of being severely affected by this potentially deadly virus varies considerably. For instance, frail elderly people initially represented a large segment of patients with COVID-19 who died. However, further analyses revealed that people with obesity and other chronic conditions, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease, were at greater risk of severe COVID-19 and death than individuals of a normal weight without comorbidities.”

 

 

 

Research has shown that not only does obesity put someone at much greater risk of severe COVID-19 outcomes, but so does a lack of physical activity. Among those who became infected, the sedentary were more than twice as likely to be hospitalized, 73% more likely to be placed in intensive care, and 2.5 times more likely to die from the disease as compared to those who got at least 150 minutes of exercise a week.

FARMER: Wendell Berry is a farmer who doesn’t own a TV or computer, and he farms with horses rather than heavy machinery. He’s also a writer who is inspiring a revolution against an economic system that is built on waste and exploitation. Here’s why one writer sees him as a model for a new way to live in harmony with the land and each other.

 

Years ago when I was deciding what to study in college, one of the dominant thoughts was this: I want to make enough money that I never have to do my own yard work. I settled on mechanical engineering. And soon, instead of making money mowing lawns and pulling weeds as I had for most of high school, I was spending my summers sitting at a computer designing things. If that younger me could see my life now — instead of life as an engineer, I’m spending my time teaching science, keeping chickens, and looking forward to getting my hands dirty in the garden — he would be horrified.

Vatican City, 25 May, 2022 / 8:30 pm (ACI Africa).

 

 

 

Pope Francis said on Wednesday that Catholics today are living in an “age of fake news, collective superstitions, and pseudo-scientific truths.”

 

 

 

Reflecting on the Book of Ecclesiastes at his general audience on May 25, the pope suggested that the 21st century was marked not only by scientific knowledge but also what he called a “cultured witchcraft.”

NEW HORIZONS for the Parish. In light of a need for more accountable structures indicated by the diocese, the Parish Societies need to be reviewed.  Because of this and various happenings in the Parish (Covid/change of Parish administration etc.), I invited feedback in February.

 

It does not serve much purpose to go through the different perspectives in detail but what in general emerged was a desire for a return to “normality”, concern to re-engage those who have moved away, a need to better include youth of different stands (altar servers, choirs etc.)  Other items included some need for more extended newsletters, better Mass times, Church maintenance (current and future), adult education (retreats/lectures/seminars), a retirement village.

 

Parish representation mainly through the Pastoral Council and Finance Committee is appreciated but included a strong call for renewal.  This pivoted on the need for regular replacement of members in the interest of vitality and better inclusion.  For this, various people were proposed.

 

As a follow up and initial step, the pastoral council and finance committee will soon be reframed as the Parish looks ahead.

 

CORPUS CHRISTI PROCESSION 2022: Following cancelation of our Corpus Christi Procession during the Covid period we hope to have hold our Annual Corpus Christi Procession on Saturday, 18th June immediately after the Vigil Mass of the Feast of Corpus Christi at 7.00 p.m.. (More details later).

LABOUR and Farmers 100 years ago. In  County  Kerry,  labour  organisations  turned  to  co-operative principles to secure the economic interests of their members. In November 1918, The Irish  Homestead reported  the  establishment  of  a  workers’  co-operative  store  in Tralee.  The  following  January,  the  ITGWU  established another  co-operative  store in the market town of Listowel ‘for the benefit of the workers’. Located in Kerry’s most urbanised areas, these stores reflected the ITGWU’s desire to use co-operative methods to benefit the local consumers, the same group from which the trade union’s members were drawn.  The  IAOS  exhibited  an  uneasy  relationship  with  organised  labour.  By  May 1919,  antagonisms  between  co-operators  and  the  trade  union  movement  emerged. AE  hoped  that  workers  continued  to  establish  co-operative  societies,  but  grew anxious  about  their  autonomy  from  the  IAOS’s  authority.  AE  suggested  that  trade unions might be better served through incorporation into the IAOS. He wondered if:  trade union leaders would communicate with the Irish Agricultural Organisation Society,  so  that  investigation  may  be  made,  and  it may  be  seen  whether  labour would be better advantaged by coming in with farmers in starting a single strong society catering for both.68Such collaboration never occurred, which confirmed a distance between co-operating farmers and organised labour. Rural labourers looked to the ITGWU for leadership, whilst the  IAOS  represented  landowning  farmers.  This reflected the inability of  the IAOS to make significant progress into towns. The IAOS ceded influence over urban interests to a mixture of private industry, commercial interests and trade unions. This situation confirmed the IAOS’s  reputation  as  a  rural  producers’  organisation.  The

ITALY is one of the most beautiful countries in the world and we started in the mountains of the north, traveled through the heartland, along the Adriatic Coast, and all the way to Rome. We visited Milan, Pavia, Florence, Siena, Assisi, Loreto, Manoppello, Lanciano, Padre Pio’s San Giovanni Rotondo, and ended in Rome, with wine tasting, cooking classes, special guides like art historian, Liz Lev, and visits to amazing churches and shrines along the way

May 16 to 20th marks Dementia Awareness Week; a campaign of huge importance as not enough is understood about vascular dementia, Alzheimer’s or other similar diseases of the brain.

 

Last year, the Baring Foundation commissioned a consultation with care homes entitled ‘Arts and Culture in Every Care Home?’ . This was a national call to arms, promoting the importance of a daily cultural or arts offer for elders in care homes, including people living with dementia.

Having a dog can be excellent for those suffering from dementia. They provide an outlet of social interaction and support, and can bring some confidence to people's lives.

KILMORNA Forest Many bird species occur in the Kilmorna Forest but most of these are shy and secretive, and occur at low densities. Fruit and insect-eating birds often move around in mixed-species groups, particularly in the dry winter months when they are not breeding. This explains why it is possible to walk for long periods and see no birds, then suddenly be confronted with a whole mob. Birdwatching in any forest is always a challenge, however, as birds will hear you coming long before you see them, and they hide among shadows on the forest floor or move directly overhead in the leafy canopy. The garden around the manor provides the best birdwatching opportunities as forest-dwelling species come to the fringes. Ten of the ‘specials’ including Narina Trogon and Olive Woodpecker – are featured in our Star Birds chart and a full bird checklist is available. African Crowned Eagle may sometimes be seen soaring above the forest, while Knysna and Purple-crested Turacos (louries) feed on the Wild-plum and other fruits.

PRAYER TO ST. ROCH: O Blessed St. Roch, Patron of the sick, have pity on those who lie upon a bed of suffering.  Your power was so great when you were in this world, that by the sign of the Cross many were healed of their diseases.  Now you are in Heaven your power is no less.  Offer to God our sighs and tears and obtain for us the physical, mental. and spiritual health we seek.  This we ask though Christ our Lord.  Amen.    St. Roch pray for us, that we may be preserved

 

from all diseases of body and Soul.

 

 

 

WORD: Life is made up of getting and giving – forgetting and forgiving.

 

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

 

Take Time

 

Take time to think, it is the source of all power. Take time to play, it is the

 

secret of perpetual youth. Take time to read, it is the foundation of wisdom.

 

Take time to pray, it is the greatest power on earth. Take time to love and

 

be loved, it is a God given privilege. Take time to be friendly, it is the road to

 

happiness. Take time to laugh, it is the music of the soul. Take time to give,

 

it is too short a day to be selfish. Take time to work, it is the price of success.

 

Take time to do charity, it is the key to Heaven.

POPE FRANCIS ON SUNDAY’S GOSPEL: “The Gospel reading for this Sixth Sunday of Easter presents a passage of the discourse that Jesus addressed to the Apostles at the Last Supper. Today the Lord invites us to open our heart to the gift of the Holy Spirit, so that he may guide us on the paths of history. Day by day, he teaches us the logic of the Gospel, the logic of welcoming love, by ‘teaching us all things’ and reminding us ‘of all the Lord has said to us’. May Mary, whom in this month of May we venerate as our heavenly mother, always protect us all. May she who, with humble and courageous faith, fully cooperated with the Holy Spirit, help us too to allow ourselves to be taught and guided by the Paraclete, so that we may welcome the Word of God and witness to it with our lives.

 

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

 

Prayer

 

I put before Him the crowded day,

 

I try to hear what his voice will say.

 

If others are right and I am wrong,

 

am I the weak or are they the strong ?

 

I place my thoughts and feelings o’re,

 

as I gaze upon the little Golden Door.

 

 

 

Today dear Lord I may forget you.

 

Please do not forget me.

 

Jesus and Mary I always pray,

 

ever be with me on my way.

 

 

 

Lord, help me to remember that nothing

 

is going to happen in my life today,

 

that you and I won’t handle together.

Fr Ned McElligott- 1914–1982- Ned was born in Moyvane, Co. Kerry on the 28th of May 1914. He received his primary education at the local National School, after which he proceeded to secondary level, first at St. Michael’s, Listowel from 1927 to 1930 and then at St. Brendan’s Seminary, Killarney from 1930 to 1932. In that year, he entered St. Patrick’s College, Carlow, where he studied philosophy from 1932 to 1934. In the latter year, he entered Kiltegan and was ordained in June 1939.

 

From 1939 to early 1945, he worked in the then Prefecture of Calabar. He taught in Holy Family College, Abak, and later ministered in the missions of Anua, Ifuho and Edem Ekpat.

 

After the usual home leave, he returned to Calabar in 1946.

This was followed by a stint on the college staff during the academic year of 1950-1951. In 1951 he went on parish work to the Diocese of Kildare and Leighlin, where he ministered in the parish of Ballon.

FERTILIZER: The biggest buyer of Russian fertilizer is Brazil, which imports about a quarter of all its fertilizer from Russia. Earlier this year, with Russian troops gathering at the Ukrainian border, President Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil posed for photos with Mr. Putin in the Kremlin. At the meeting, a week before the invasion, Mr. Bolsonaro said Brazil stood “in solidarity with Russia.” On the same trip, he said Brazil would double its purchases of Russian fertilizers.

 

After the invasion began, Mr. Bolsonaro said Brazil would remain neutral, and made clear why. “What happens 10,000 kilometers away in Ukraine has reverberations in Brazil,” he said. “We have special business with Russia.”

 

 

 

“For us,” he added, “the question of fertilizers is sacred.”

AMAZING Life of Pauline Jaricot

 

Pauline Jaricot, who was declared venerable in 1963, was born in Lyon a decade after the French Revolution, on July 22, 1799. She was the youngest of seven children of Antoine and Jeanne Jaricot.

 

Antoine was the owner of a silk factory, so Pauline was expected to live her life in the bourgeoisie. So at 15 she was made her debut in Lyon’s social life of the city. A sermon on vanity made her question that scene.

HIDDEN long-term risks of surgery: ‘It gives people’s brains a hard time’------------------

 

Cibelli listened as the woman described how her father, a former physics professor, had shown signs of significant cognitive decline after the initial operation. Once a keen chess player, he was now unable to play the game and struggled to even do basic crosswords.

 

For Cibelli, it was the first time he had encountered what is now termed postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) – cognitive problems associated with surgery that persist well after the effects of anaesthetics have worn off. “I published some articles on the subject,” he says. “And people began finding my email address, saying their father or mother had changed a lot after a surgery in the past. So I began to realise that this wasn’t such an isolated case.”

TURF cutting and the war in Ukraine, our government are not sincere in their sympathy with the people suffering from an unnecessary war. If they were really giving help, they would keep a constant campaign on the media, advising and enabling the Irish and their EU and world population to refrain from any activity that would use gas or oil, which fuels the war. All advertisements could carry a warning of their carbon footprint.

 

Friends of the Irish Environment (FIE) has recently sent a written communication to Bord na Móna calling on the organisation to stop the removal of its 950,000t peat stockpiles.

 

FODDER, hundreds of acres of land are lying idle due to present policies of the EU and market conditions. They could easily bring back some of the wasteland for fodder production, still only talk and no speedy action before it is too late.

USA: The Biden administration  established a program that allows Americans to sponsor Ukrainian refugees and have them temporarily stay in the United States under a system known as humanitarian parole.

 

The program, called Uniting for Ukraine, is a piece of a larger initiative to temporarily resettle as many as 100,000 Ukrainian refugees, but migrants themselves cannot directly apply. Instead, a sponsor in the United States must apply on their behalf, and then migrants may complete the process after their sponsor is approved.

On the contrary, they took some hard knocks in these years. Bishop Browne's vocational organisation report was shelved. Archbishop McQuaid's attempt to mediate in the school strike of 1946 was rebuffed. The hierarchy as a whole saw its advice on the licensing laws rejected, and was far from totally successful in its attempts to secure modifications in the health services."

Kerry I.R.A. Volunteer Dies In Chicago Maurice Walsh, a native of Gaelbridge, Moyvane, Co. Kerry, died on May 14, 1973 at his home in Chicago, Illinois. Maurice was a member of the Derry Co. Listowel Battalion. He took the side of the Republican Movement and opposed the Treaty in 1921. All through his life Maurice remained a true Irishman and supported the fight for a 32 County Free Ireland. It is with sadness that his friends regret his departure from this life. All of us are better Irishmen for having the opportunity to be associated with him. We extend our deepest sympathy to his family in the U.S. and in his native Kerry. Jack Lyons

ENERGY: Four simple changes, such as turning down the thermostat, air-drying laundry, placing a lid on saucepans during cooking and using the dishwasher in eco mode, could save £400 a year.

 

Sky News analysis of data from consultancy Cambridge Energy shows that those changes would also lead to a drop in carbon emissions by a fifth for heating per household.

WAR: With the experience of World War I fresh in his mind, Randolph Bourne famously warned that "war is the health of the state." Under stress, he noted, people rally behind the government and lash out at dissenters. Since then, we've learned that freedom lost in times of crisis is rarely fully regained after life settles down. War isn't always avoidable; Ukrainians had no choice but to fight or capitulate when Russian forces invaded. But, no matter whether Russia or Ukraine ultimately prevail, the logic of conflict inevitably makes a victim of individual liberty.

The two leaders hit it off, and not just because of their legendary macho bravado. Mr. Putin, a former K.G.B. agent who had been based in Dresden, spoke fluent German and grew up poor, like Mr. Schröder, whose mother was a cleaner who brought up five children on her own.

The World Bank says the war in Ukraine is set to cause the "largest commodity shock" since the 1970s - meaning huge price rises for goods ranging from natural gas to wheat and cotton.

 

 

 

The increases will affect the poorest most, but households and business of all sizes will feel the effects.

 

 

 

Wheat is predicted to go up in price by almost 43% and reach new highs, chicken could go up nearly 42%, soybeans 20% and oil 30%.

WAR: During the war, airmen in the 100th Bomb Group could finish their combat service and return home after flying 25 missions. Yet with a 1 in 10 chance of becoming a casualty, few were able to reach this milestone. Lucky was one of the, well, lucky few who did, and Kevin traces how he got there, from trying to join the Royal Canadian Air Force as a teenager, to learning to fly the B-17 on the job, to his harrowing daylight bombing missions over Germany, to the life he made for himself after the war. Along the way, Kevin describes the brutal conditions inside a B-17 and the bomber’s role in winning the war.

There are a few caveats here, or aspects of a survival garden you really need to think about before you decide that just because your backyard is precisely 200 square feet you’ll be able to pull this off. First of all, the list above isn’t comprehensive and only included a few examples.

BUYING on impulse

 

In fact, studies suggest that as much as 50% of all groceries are sold because of impulsiveness – and over 87% of shoppers make impulse buys.

 

While it is complicated and affected by many factors, such as a need for arousal and lack of self-control, it is known that external shopping cues – “buy one get one free” offers, discounts and in-store promotional displays, for example – play a key role.

 WITH THE SPLIT in the Irish Volunteers at the outbreak of the First World War, about 170,000 men followed Irish Parliamentary Party leader John Redmond into the National Volunteers and, from there, into the trenches of Europe. A minority of Volunteers, about 11,000, rejected Redmond's assertion that Irish freedom could be won on the battlefields of Europe but were themselves divided on the type of freedom they wanted and how it should be achieved. When a decision was taken to stage an armed uprising at Easter 1916, it was taken by a small minority within the depleted Irish Volunteers. • Neither Eoin MacNeill, who was nominal head of the Volunteers, nor people like Arthur Griffith, were consulted about the rising. Similarly, they were told nothing of a decision taken by the same conspiratorial group of IRB officers within the Volunteers to import arms for this rebellion. MANDATE Without any electoral mandate from the Irish people, most of whom supported Redmond, and without the say-so of the Volunteer movement to which they belonged, this group of IRB men proceeded with their plans and contacted John Devoy in America at the beginning of February 1916. They claimed their mandate from the inalienable right of an oppressed people to rise against their oppressors with arms. Since Devoy was the leader of Clan na Gael, the Irish support group in America, he was told about the rising and about the need for arms which, he was advised, 'should be sent to Limerick Quay between April 20th and 23rd 1916'. But, as Devoy pointed out in his Recollections of this period: "This request to 'send a shipment of arms' was, of course, intended to be transmitted to Germany, the men in Ireland knew that all funds in the possession of the Clan na Gael had been sent to them and that consequently we in the United States were unable to purchase such armaments as they required." And he added: "Even if we held special funds for that purpose, it would be practically impossible to load and clear such a cargo in face of Wilson's (US President Woodrow Wilson) Secret Service, which was watching us very keenly and was in closest touch with the English, communicating to them everything/ even of the slightest importance. " EMBASSY Through the German Embassy in the United States, Devoy contacted the German War Staff and within days they replied: "It is possible to send two or three small fishing steamers with about ten machine guns, twenty thousand rifles, ammunition and explosives to Fenit Pier in Tralee Bay. Irish pilots should wait north of Inishtooskert Island from before dawn of April 20th, displaying at intervals three green lights. Disembarkation must be effected immediately. Let us know if this can be done." The Germans had clearly expected an appeal for weapons from Ireland. On November 8th 1915 the German Admiralty had discussed the possibility of such a shipment only to reject the idea on the grounds that it would endanger submarines. But by March 1916 the opinion of the Admiralty was changed by the German War Staff, who saw the potential advantages in a widespread Irish uprising against British rule. EXAGGERATED This change of mind was also prompted by some 'misleading' information supplied to the Germans by the IRB. While the strength of British troops and RIC in Ireland was estimated at 40,000, the strength of Irish forces was grossly exaggerated. Besides claiming the allegiance of 40,000 Irish Volunteers, they 'anticipated' that 50,000 Red- mondite Volunteers would join the rebellion and that it was 'probable' that thousands of unorganised Irishmen would also join an uprising. On the basis of this report, the IRB asked for 25,000- 50,000 rifles, a proportionate number of machine guns and field artillery as well as a number of officers. The report optimistically concluded that 'even for 100,000 rifles the necessary number of men would be obtainable'. By March 17th, the German Admiralty had agreed to the shipment to Tralee Bay but had decided that a single small steamer, rather than three trawlers, would be used to ferry the weapons.

North Kerry and Kerry Selected match in Listowel--------------------------

 

Shortly   after    the   advertised    time,    the  teams    were  set     in  motion     and     from   the  throw-In   North  Kerry   pressed  strongly,  but  were  unable  to  penetrate  the  sound  defense   of  the  opposing  back  division.    Give  and  take  play  followed,   and   North    Kerry,   who   appeared   to  be  the   better   trained   combination,   took   the  lead   and   the   short   whistle   found   them   leading   by    four    points  to  nil.  On   resumption   the   Kerry    selected    team  showed   up  to   better   advantage,   but  were  unable  to  cope  with  the  sustained rushes  of  their  opponents,  who  were  ably  led  by  the  indomitable   Con   Brosnan.    ' Towards    the    finish     play     lacked   somewhat   in   vigour   and   interest     When   the   final   whistle   sounded   the  score  stood:  North  Kerry,  7  points  (and   the   disputed   goal);   Kerry    Selected,  nil.  For the  winners.   Brosnan,   Mahony,   Stack, Kearns,  O'Sullivan   and   Walsh   were   most   prominent,   while   for    the    losers   Barrett.   Moriarty   and   Landers   gave  an   able  exhibition   of  the   Gaelic   Code. The    match  was    referred     by  Tom  Costelloe,  one   of  the   old  Kerry   champions,  and   gave     admirable     satisfaction.

C April

 

Deep regret is expressed among his colleagues and the general public at the death which occurred rather unexpectedly of M. Stack, N.T Ballindine. A native or Listowel, he held the Carlysle and Blake Premium

 

The news of the sudden death of Mrs. C. Mulvihill near Newtownsandes has created a great shock to the community as the deceased who was mother of M. C Mulvihill, R.D.C., ----------------------------

 

The funeral of Mrs. Gibson, Listowel, widow of T. Gibson, draper; mother of Dr. M. Gibson, Richmond Hospital, Dublin, and sister of J Stack, ex-M.P., was largely attended by both clergy and laity.

 

A young horse the property of John Broderick, Caherlane, Abbeyfeale took flight outside the town a few days ago and to prevent the animal running through the town the driver faced him for the road fence which he cleared and was strangled on the other side before he could be detached from the cart.

 

Tralee Guardians have congratulated Mrs. Maud Welsh on her appointment as Superintendent under the National Service Scheme.

 

The late Capt. M. J. Collis Sandes (of Tralee) killed In action, left £45,102, and bequeathed £3,000 each and household and personal effects to his three sisters, Joan, Margaret and Doris, and £250 a year to his aunt, G. Collis, with the residue for all his sisters.

TITANIC: When the Titanic set out on her maiden voyage in 1912, she was the largest vessel in the world with a passenger capacity of 2,435. The RMS Titanic sank in the early morning hours of 15 April 1912 in the North Atlantic Ocean, four days into her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City.  Those who had escaped the Titanic watched helplessly from the lifeboats as the figures on deck grew ever dimmer and the sounds of hymns and prayers now mingled with wailing.

 

 

 

Noting the first incursions of dark waters upon the deck, the priest made himself as visible as he could before those assembled and then proceeded to raise his hand in one last act of blessing and absolution. Then, with his crucifix and rosary and in his hand, Father Byles began once more to lead those gathered around him in the recitation of that ancient prayer as the band continued to play. 

 

 

 

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;

 

The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.

 

Hold … Thy cross before my closing eyes …

 

In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

BISHOP of Limerick; “We imagine the plight and trauma of families, mothers and children. Young adults realise young people of their age, men and women, have been called to war. We all feel threatened by how war can so easily escalate in a way we’d have never foreseen possible in Europe.”

 

 

 

Bishop Leahy, however, urged young people to open up to issues, not least of they are feeling anxious and said we need look no further than US Masters champion Scottie Scheffler in how he overcame the weight of the pressure he felt on Sunday morning.

 

 

 

The Bishop of Limerick said in conclusion that Scheffler “spoke about being almost overwhelmed the morning of the final round, breaking down in tears, talking about not being ready ‘for this’. Like so many of us he turned to an ally for support, his wife Meredith, who asked, ‘who are you to say you are not ready’. They then talked about God’s will. ‘God is in control and the Lord is leading me. And if today is my time, then it’s my time’, he said. Peace and calm can come in troubled waters if you put your faith in those closest to you and in God.”

NURSING: While wounded in battle in 1898, Edward Baker wished for nursing on the battlefield. Nine years later, he founded a group that would do just that: the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry (FANY). He recruited young British women who could ride and owned horses, and the group soon came into being. FANYs received international attention. In 1909 an American newspaper, the Statesman Journal, described the group as “well nigh revolutionary … the idea is that the women shall care for the wounded as they fall and shall practically enter the area of the fight.” FANYs did see their fair share of action as they served valiantly in World War I, facing Zeppelin raids, vehicle problems, shellfire, death, and disease. At first unaccepted by their home country, FANYs provided help elsewhere, for the Belgian and French armies, setting up hospitals and serving on battlefields. The British didn’t utilise their services until January 1, 1916.

County Kerry Farmers Raise Hell Holidaymakers in Ballybunion, Co. Kerry, could find that they are sharing their stretch of beach with tractors and trailers this summer if the area's angry farmers' demands are not met. They are looking for action from the Minister for Industry and Commerce on the question of removal of material—sand gravel and seaweed—which they hold they have a right to. For some time now the farmers have been fighting for the right to remove material from the foreshore but the campaign came to a head last week when farmers drove en masse to the strand to load up their trailers. After loading up, the farmers drove at a crawl through Ballybunion causing a serious traffic hold up. An order made by the Minister for Industry and Commerce in 1932 and updated in 1950 permits tractor owners residing in North Kerry and the parish of Athea, Co. Limerick, to remove only sand and seaweed from the foreshore between October 1 and June 1, but not the remainder of the year. The threat of the beach takeover during the summer was made by the farmers' chairman, Michael Griffin: "If they try to keep us out we will go there and take over the strand instead of the visitors. "We feel it is up to the Minister to become involved and we feel we have a right there. Seventy years ago they tried to close the beach to us and also forty years ago, when three men went to jail over the matter."

 IRISH NATIONAL IMMIGRATION Statement of John P. Collins, National Chairman of the American Irish National Immigration Committee delivered before Subcommittee No. 1 - Immigration and Nationality of the Judiciary Committee, United States House of Representatives, Washington, D.C. Mr. Chairman, Members of the Congress: First, I take the liberty, Mr. Chairman to congratulate you on your appointment as Chairman of Subcommittee No. 1. Your succession to the Chair of your distinguished predecessor is a well deserved appointment. I represent today, the American Irish Immigration Committee, a national group with chapters in thirty states, composed of Protestants, Catholics and Jews. Our members are represented in all the major Irish organizations in the United States including the Ancient Order of Hibernians, the Gaelic Athletic Association, the Knights of Equity, the American Irish Historical Society, county associations and American Irish clubs and organizations. Our committee directs your attention to H.R. 981, section 9, amending Section 212 (d) (5) (c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, dealing with refugees. We urge its enactment. Only recently, your subcommittee in other hearings, received a detailed report on the happenings in the northern six county area of Ireland, known to us as occupied Ireland. Discrimination, terror; oppression and injustice are the everyday occurrence in this area. We have had occasion to interview residents of this area visiting the U.S. who have been the victims of discrimination in housing, in jobs; who have been the victims of the terror in the area, by reason of their political opinions and their religious persuasion. On the advice of their families, relatives, friends, solicitors, clergymen and yes, even on the advice of certain members of the British Parliament, they have sought to remain in the United States. Returning to occupied Ireland would be foolhardy for them. Fear of their safety demands that they reside elsewhere. These individuals, not yet large in number, have aunts, uncles and cousins in the U.S. Lacking sisters and brothers who are U.S. citizens, they cannot qualify for fifth preference visas. Nor can they meet the requirement of the other family related preferences. The stringent application of labour clearance, makes it impossible for them to qualify for a non-preference, third preference or sixth preference visa. Their only hope is to seek asylum here and obtain status as a refugee. Our nation has always been the haven of the oppressed, yet the United States refuses to grant asylum to one in the predicament that I have just outlined. In January 1972, I communicated with the Immigration and Naturalization Service, in Washington requesting information as to the position of the government on the matter. I received the following reply: "Reference is made to your letter of January 24, 1972, concerning visitors from Northern Ireland who do not desire to return abroad. Detailed instructions have been furnished our local offices for the processing of any alien who does not desire to return to his home country because of fear of persecution due to race, religion or political opinion. Each case of this type is decided on its merits. If you know of anyone who falls within this category, it is suggested that you direct the individual to call at the New York office of this Service at 20 West Broadway in order that their cases may be given consideration. Persons in other parts of the country may present themselves at the nearest local office of the Service having jurisdiction over their location. Sincerely, (Sgd.) James F. Greene Associate Commissioner Operations"

 631 Hurt So Far In Industrial Accidents Figures just released by the National Industrial Safety Organisation show that for the quarter ended March 31, 1973, a total of 631 notifiable accidents were reported, five of them fatal. The greatest number (2) of deaths occurred in docks and warehouses where efforts are under way to improve the safety situation there. A spokesman for NISO said that arrangements were in hand for the holding of a one-day safety training course for the building and construction industry. Preparations are also under way for the holding of the Sixth World Congress on the Prevention of Occupational Injuries and Diseases in Ireland next May. Upwards of 2,000 representatives of official agencies, social insurance institutions, trade unions, employers' organisations and private associations from more than 60 countries will attend.

POPE: “An older person, one who has lived a long time, and receives the gift of a lucid and passionate testimony of his history, is an irreplaceable blessing.”

 

In a personal testimony, Pope Francis recalled learning about his abhorrence and anger at war from his grandfather, who fought on the Piave in 1914.

 

“He passed on this anger to me,” recalled the Pope, “because he told me about the suffering of a war. And you don’t learn that in books or in other ways… you learn it this way, passing it on from grandparents to grandchildren.”

 

He went on to say that “today, unfortunately, this is not the case and we think that grandparents are discarded material: no! No! They are the living memory of a people, and young people and children need to hear from their grandparents.”

 

Wisdom of the elderly

 

“In our culture, which is so ‘politically correct,’ he noted, “this path seems to be hindered in many ways.”

 

Therefore, the Pope added, we greatly need the wisdom and experience of the elderly to help new generations know the Church from the inside, to live lives of fidelity to God’s word, to persevere in hope amid trials, and to show compassionate love for all our brothers and sisters.

Desmond Hall an OPW managed site

 

West Limerick preserves many of Ireland's surviving spacious medieval halls. The Desmond Banqueting Hall is an imposing two-storey structure and was used by the Earls of Desmond for banqueting and entertainment. The Hall, vaulted lower chamber and adjoining tower were all constructed during the 15th century (the hall and chamber were built on the remains of a 13th century structure of similar size). Its restored medieval features include and oak musicians' gallery and a limestone hooded fireplace.

Listowel Castle

 

Listowel Castle stands on an elevation overlooking the River Feale, above the location of a strategic ford. Although only half of the building survives, it is still one of Kerry’s best examples of Anglo-Norman architecture. Only two of the original four square towers, standing over 15 metres high, remain. The towers are united by a curtain wall of the same height and linked together – unusually – by an arch on one side. Listowel was the last bastion against the forces of Queen Elizabeth in the First Desmond Rebellion in 1569. The castle’s garrison held out for 28 days of siege before finally being overpowered by Sir Charles Wilmot. In the days following the castle’s fall, Wilmot executed all of the soldiers left inside.

PLASTIC: Researchers took blood samples from anonymous, healthy adults, and looked for plastics that were between 700 and 500,000 nanometers (nm). Seven hundred nm is around 140 times smaller than the width of a human hair, writes The Wire Science’s Aathira Perinchery.

 

 

 

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), commonly used in disposable water bottles, was the most widely encountered plastic polymer and found in about 50 percent of the donors. The second most common, polystyrene (PS), which is used for food packaging and polystyrene foam, was found in about 36 percent, per the study.

Indulgence during Lent

 

 

 

 

 

Did you know that there are several ways you can gain a plenary indulgence during Lent? It’s true! There are actually four ways you can receive one. Even though Lent is nearly over, there is still plenty of time for you to complete any, or all, of these.

 

 

 

First of all, what is a plenary indulgence?

 

 

 

A plenary indulgence is a grace granted by the Catholic Church through the merits of Jesus Christ, Mary, and all the saints to remove the temporal punishment due to sin. The indulgence cleanses a person of all temporal punishment due to sin. However, it must always be accompanied by a full detachment from sin.

 

 

 

Now that we know what a plenary indulgence is, how do we receive one during Lent?

 

 

 

The first way is to spend at least 30 minutes in adoration. Visiting the Blessed Sacrament is important all year round. So why not take part in this beautiful practice during Lent and receive some additional graces too?

 

 

 

If you’ve never been to adoration, or struggle to stay awake (don’t worry, we’ve all been there), try reading a couple of chapters from the Gospels, pray a rosary, or really focus on being in Christ’s presence.

 

 

 

The next way is to take part in the Stations of the Cross, which is when we meditate on the Lord’s Passion and Death. Every Catholic church should have some kind of Stations of the Cross, whether they are simple or elaborate. Any will do!

 

 

 

However, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. The Holy See’s Manual of Indulgences, Fourth Edition, does state that there have to be 14 stations “representing the 14 stations of Jerusalem.”

 

 

 

The manual also reminds us that “progression from one station to the next is required.” Although, if there are too many people and moving would cause an inconvenience, it is sufficient that at least the one conducting the Way of the Cross move from station to station. In other words, if you attend the Stations of the Cross with many participants and everyone remains in the pews while the priest moves to each station, that is still valid.

 

 

 

This specific indulgence can even be gained once a day for those who can attend church daily and wish to perform the Stations of the Cross on their own.

 

 

 

The next way is by praying the rosary “in a church or oratory, or in a family, a religious community, or an association of the faithful.”

 

 

 

The last way is by reading or listening to Sacred Scripture. Just make sure you spend at least half an hour with the Word of God and it counts.

 

 

 

 There are some conditions, like the fine print, that assure you receive your indulgence.

 

 

 

First, you must have complete detachment from all sin, even venial.

 

 

 

Then you have to go to confession, receive Holy Communion, and pray for the intentions of the pope. Sacramental confession and receiving the Eucharist can happen up to about 20 days before or after the act performed to receive a plenary indulgence.

 

 

 

It is appropriate that Communion and the prayer take place on the same day that the work is completed. One sacramental confession is sufficient for several plenary indulgences. However, for each plenary indulgence one wishes to receive, a separate reception of the Eucharist and a separate prayer for the intentions of the Holy Father are required.

 

 

 

Once you have followed these steps, rest assured that you have received a plenary indulgence.

A challenge is different than a decision, it is like a dare, it can make you a little uncomfortable, courageous almost, there can be some uncertainty while we carry it out.  The more we challenge ourselves the more decisive we get about our destination, even if we encounter barriers... https://macra.ie/blogs/news

INFLAMMATION: “Chemotherapy and radiation are like sledgehammers,” Panigrahy says. “They may kill the tumour, but the debris they create stimulates inflammation, which feeds circulating tumour cells that survive the treatment.”

 

A decade ago, Panigrahy was puzzling over this conundrum when he met Serhan at a conference on lipids in Cancún, Mexico. “I had just presented my research on cell death in cancer and how there’s no way to clear the resulting debris when I heard Serhan’s talk about how he discovered these lipids that eliminated debris,” he says. The two Boston-based researchers have shared a close collaboration ever since.

EQUINOX: what happens during the spring equinox? In simple terms, the spring equinox is when the Sun crosses the celestial equator (an imaginary line in the sky above Earth’s equator), going from the southern hemisphere to the northern hemisphere. As the Sun is exactly above the equator, both the northern hemisphere and the southern hemisphere receive nearly equal amounts of the Sun’s rays. In other words, the day and night are (almost) equal in both hemispheres.

NATIVE OF KERRY

 

Belfast, Wednesday.—An ex-member of the  R.I.C. and R.U C. was sent to prison for two months at the Northern Winter Assizes at Downpatrick, to-day, for a serious offence. He was Patrick Clubberton, who is believed to be a native of Kerry. Cluhberton, in evidence, said he had been in seventeen ambushes North and South. Police Inspector Regan said accused had a good army record and hold a first-class police certificate for bravery. He was dismissed from the force while serving in Co Down in 1925.
