The Eucharist is a sign of that promise. Let us pray that all God’s people may recognize and respond to his promise. We pray for Pope Francis who calls the Church to become the Body of Christ. We pray that we may become for others the bread of life that we share together. Lord, hear us. We pray for all priests who celebrate the anniversaries of their ordination at this time. May their lives imitate the mystery that they celebrate. Lord, hear us. We pray for young people preparing for exams at this time. May they be guided by the Spirit of right judgement, wisdom, understanding and knowledge. Lord, hear us. We pray for all who are sick and those who are vulnerable. May we be encouraged by their patience, trust and hope. Lord, hear us. We pray for all who have died: lead them to the banquet of the Lord’s eternal presence. Lord, hear us. Father in heaven, may we who worship the Lord’s presence, experience within us the power of his love. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen. Recently deceased: Mary Mullen, Glaslough Village. Patricia McKenna, Kilacorn. Willie Lavery, Oriel Park. Sean Gunn, Newbliss. Rose Wiley, Co Tyrone. Lough Derg: For a second pilgrimage season in a row the Lough Derg boats will not ferry pilgrims, yet the voice of prayer will not be silent. The traditional pilgrimage on Lough Derg will not go ahead this summer. The public health measures still in place within the phased relaxation of restrictions do not go far enough at this time to enable Station Island to reopen for the safe return of pilgrims. In a normal season, over 10,000 pilgrims would make their annual pilgrimage or retreat during the summer months to Lough Derg. This year again the Prior, Fr La Flynn, will move out to the Island on the first of June to begin his witness of a daily Station Prayer on behalf of pilgrims who otherwise would themselves be coming on pilgrimage over the ten weeks until 15 August. This offers also a pledge of assurance to the many who send their petitions and prayers to Lough Derg, that these will be remembered before God on this holy ground. Fr La comments on how it feels, this second time around, knowing that we will be into a third year before the return of a full pilgrimage programme in 2022. “I want to say that Lough Derg is still here. I am very confident that, with a further easing of restrictions on outdoor gatherings in the coming weeks, Lough Derg will be able to offer the ‘Pilgrimage along the Lakeshore’ with a possibility of open-air Mass. “Our regular pilgrims will be glad to learn that the ‘Pilgrimage from Afar’, offered in response to the pandemic last year, will be held on 3-5 July. From their own home, pilgrims will be able to join with me and some members of our pastoral team to do their Three Day Pilgrimage from where they are, with a live stream link.” “Participation in ‘Do Lough Derg from wherever you are’ will be open to anyone across Ireland and indeed worldwide who is up for the challenge of the traditional pilgrimage.  Last year we were joined across timelines by pilgrims from Beijing to Vancouver, all sharing in a continuum of prayer that has been kept alive by families from generation to generation back through the centuries.” To register contact Lough Derg by phone or email.  info@loughderg.org or 071 986 1518. Exam Prayer  Lord, I know you are with me and love me. Give me peace of mind as I prepare for this time of study. Help me to focus on my books and notes. Keep me from all distractions so that I will make the best use of this time that is available to me. Give me insight that I might understand what I am studying, and help me to remember it when the time comes. Above all, I thank you for the ability to be able to study and for the many gifts and talents you have given me. Help me always to use them in such a way that they honour you and do justice to myself.
