Every seven days the Church celebrates the Easter Mystery. This tradition goes back to the time of the Apostles. It takes its origin from the actual day of Christ’s Resurrection. Sunday extends the celebration of Easter throughout the year. It is meant to be lit up by the glory of the Risen Christ. Sunday also recalls the creation of the World.

The fathers of the Second Vatican Council explained how we should celebrate the Eucharist on Sunday or its vigil on Saturday evening: “The Church earnestly desires that Christ’s faithful when present at this Mystery of Faith should not be there as strangers or silent spectators. They should be instructed by God’s word and be nourished at the table of the Lord’s Body.”

The Dead

Roisin Purcell (sister of Eileen Breslin) who died in Dublin on Thursday.

And we pray for:

Sara and Josie Gallagher,

Charlie and Maggie Josie Watters,

Teague and May Gallagher,

Conal Gallagher,

Nan and Danny Sweeney,

whose anniversaries occur.

And for the deceased members of the McHugh, O’Donnell and Gallagher families.

May they rest in peace. Amen.
