Prayers of the faithful As we celebrate the feast of Pentecost, we pray for the Church throughout the world; for Pope Francis, all the bishops and all those called to ministry and leadership in the church. Lord, hear us. May all members of the church feel secure in their relationship with God, so that their lives may bear living witness to the joy of the gospel. Lord, hear us. May the Holy Spirit guide the Church, protect it from all evil, and renew the face of the earth. Lord, hear us. May the Church be consecrated in the truth by constantly listening to and reflecting on the Word of God. Lord, hear us. We remember those for whom we have been asked to pray in our own community, especially the recently deceased. Lord, hear us. . People are reminded of the Catholic tradition of a spiritual communion. When we cannot attend Mass, we can still make an Act of Spiritual Communion, expressing our faith in Christ and in His Presence in the Eucharist, asking Him to unite Himself to us. The basic element of an Act of Spiritual Communion are an Act of Faith; An Act of Love; a desire to receive Christ; and an invitation to Him to come into your heart. Some of the prayers accompanying an Act of Spiritual Communion include My Jesus I believe that you are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.

Message from Bishop Larry to Confirmation Class To mark the Feast of Pentecost and in recognition of the fact that the celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation across the diocese has had to be postponed this year due to Covid-19, Bishop Larry Duffy has recorded a special video message for all the young people of the Confirmation Classes of 2020, acknowledging their disappointment and his that the celebrations cannot go ahead at the moment but assuring them that they will be re-arranged. This video is now available on the diocesan website and can also be accessed by this link - https://www.clogherdiocese.ie/2020/05/bishop-duffy-records-a-message-for-confirmation-classes-of-2020/ Cancellation of the Reek Sunday pilgrimage 2020 However Archbishop Neary, Archbishop of Tuam, will celebrate the vigil Mass in Westport on Saturday 25 July at 6:30 pm which will be offered for the intentions of all who intended to make the pilgrimage.  Prayer intentions can be emailed at any time to reeksunday2020@gmail.com or by post to Westport Parish, Co Mayo.  • This Mass will be live-streamed on the parish Facebook page ‘St Marys Church Westport’ which can be accessed on www.westportparish.ie Joint statement from Bishop Larry Duffy RC & Archdeacon Brian Harper - Church of Ireland Archbishops Commissary On this great Feast of Pentecost, when all Christians celebrate the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Church, we send our warmest greetings to all the people of the Diocese of Clogher. In doing so, we pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to guide and renew us in love and fellowship as we journey together on the way. For nearly 20 years now, our Churches have marked this great feast by coming together for an Ecumenical Service of Prayer, usually held outdoors at a site associated with the earliest days of Christianity in these parts. By doing so we give thanks and praise together to God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and our joint prayer acknowledges and draws from the tradition of Christian faith that we in these parts have inherited from the time of St Patrick and St Macartan. Sadly, this year the onset of the Coronavirus Covid-19 has forced us to postpone our coming together in the physical sense. It is our intention, however, with God’s help, to hold our service at a venue in the northern end of the diocese later in the year. Despite all this, our prayer is as intense as ever as we place before the Lord our needs and the needs of the world at this time of great distress for so many. We remember especially those who have died, those who mourn their loss and those who are ill or have been affected in any way by this terrible virus. We also give thanks to God for the gifts and work of so many who work in healthcare, other frontline workers – including clergy - and the many people of all ages in our community who, through their generous self-giving at this time, give witness to the living power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our midst. This time of isolation also enables us to prayerfully reflect on what we share. Our baptism brings us into the very life of God in Jesus Christ, enabling us to share in his divine love, ‘marking us with his seal and giving us the pledge, the Spirit, that we carry in our hearts’ (2 Cor. 1:22). As Christians, we have been trying our best to do that in many respects and in different ways over recent months; through our online celebrations and worship, our outreach to the vulnerable and those who mourn and the shared voice of the leaders of the main Churches in Ireland, working together. This time also allows us to appreciate still more the gift of creation, our common home, and to see and experience how nature is praying with us, through the singing of the birds, the flowing of the waters and the beauty of the flowers and plants all around us. We are all connected. God rejoices in us! As we mark the end of the Season of Easter, let us remind ourselves that, in the recent words of the Archbishop of Canterbury, ‘The good news of the resurrection of Jesus Christ pierces the darkness of despair and solidifies our hope in eternal life in Him.’[1] May we always give thanks; may we always allow ourselves to be renewed and to shine through the love of God that is patient and kind, and may we continue to do all we can ‘to preserve the unity of the Spirit by the peace that binds you together’ Peace be with you!
