The Body And Blood of Christ, June 14, 2009

Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one so that when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift.
When the door of happiness closes, another opens, but often times we look so long at the closed door that we don't see the one which has been opened for us.
The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've every had.
It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.
Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they'll love you back! Don't expect love in return; just wait for it to grow in their heart but if it doesn't, be content it grew in yours. It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone, but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

Thanks to one and all who partook and gave a great helping hand in our celebration of the Fun Day on Sunday May 31. Everything went so well - from the celebration and participation in the 11.00 a.m. Mass to the Fun Day in the Parish Hall and surroundings. The Lord blessed us with a wonderful day. Thanks again to everybody.
Fr. Eamonn
