I took this photo on Sunday afternoon at 4pm as I cycled along the Carrigaline/Crosshaven greenway. Some lovely light conditions created a lovely photo opportunity. As I had problems uploading the picture yesterday, I share the photo again throughout today.

It’s all happening with Ash Wednesday tomorrow. I have just posted a new video called

‘Ash Wednesday – What is it all about?’

Thought For The Week

Last Sunday February 11th we marked World Day of the Sick.

It was an important day of healing and prayers for healing were said in every church at the weekend. We all know someone who is sick or in need of healing. If we are honest we also need some healing in our lives. We also remember all our doctors, nurses and caring teams who are doing wonderful work in our hospitals, nursing homes and out and about in our community. We are so grateful for everything they are doing and we would be totally lost without them.

The following is a prayer for healing:

I come to you Jesus as I am and with all that is going on for me. I come with my own story, with my worries and the parts of my life that need healing. I ask you Lord to bless me and to heal me. Give me a sense of hope and purpose. Give me a sense of your love, peace and calm. May I find your light, hope and courage even when I struggle to find it. May your Divine presence within me give me comfort in my weakness and give me strength in my sickness. We pray for our doctors, nurses and all our caring teams May they be blessed for their amazing courage, dedication and patience. And to finish with the Serenity Prayer: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,courage to change the things I can and wisdom to know the difference. Amen
