Saint For Today
Today September 8th we celebrate the feast day of the Birthday of Mary, the mother of Jesus. We all know how important our birthday is and we always make an effort to celebrate the birthdays of family members and friends.
Any birthday is a reminder how special that person is. Today as we celebrate the birthday of Mary we celebrate how special she is. It is a joyful day and a day of blessings. We ask her many blessings on you today.

Significance of Today
Today is International Literacy Day. In an age of enlightenment, technology and modern living, it's amazing that it has been estimated that nearly 800 million adults worldwide lack even the most basic literacy skills.
International Literacy Day aims to highlight the importance and value of literary education for individuals and groups, as well as providing benefits for the wider global culture.


Thought on Thursday - September - 08/09/2022

"The Spirit reaches the depths of everything, even the depths of God." (St Paul's letter to the Corinthians 2:10)

As we begin this month of September there is an invitation to appreciate our depth. St. Paul speaks about depth and the greater the depth of our spiritual lives, the greater the spiritual blessings will be. But the world we live in today does not use the word depth much.

The world we live in today moves at such a fast pace that there is little time for depth. Life can often be shallow and one story moves so quickly into the next one, with no time for reflection or time to be grateful or time to appreciate our blessings. There is such a need for depth in all of our lives today. As we return to more normal routines now after our summer, we are invited to be a person of depth in everything we do.

We also congratulate all those who received their Leaving Cert results on Friday. It has been a long wait during the summer and for many students the wait continues for a few more days to see if they will get their preferred course.

But it is important to say as well that the results last week only tell one story. The results don't always tell the story about the beautiful person that is each student. As you make the transition from secondary school to new beginnings, always remember who you are, always be yourself, always be proud of what you bring to each day and always remember how precious, special and unique you are today and everyday.
