Try Again
A Short Prayer
The little plans I tried to carry out have failed O Dear God.
But, I will not sorrow
I will pause a little while
And try again tomorrow.

Following on from last years excellent initiative of decorating our Churches at Christmas, our Pope John Paul II students will be involved again in offering poinsettias in memory of a loved one, or for intentions of family and friends, and it will be placed in the sanctuary area to decorate the church for Christmas.
You can call into the parish office (or the sacristy in the Church of the Resurrection) or to one of the students after Mass in the coming weeks, and fill out a card for your intentions. This card is then placed into an individual poinsettia which is ordered by the students and placed in the sanctuary area.
The cost of each poinsettia and intention card is €10 and all proceeds go directly to the Church Renovation Fund and to the Pope John Paul II Award.
Thank you in advance for supporting this idea, and helping decorate our churches for Christmas and also supporting our renovation and award fund.
The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, gift, or skill. It will make or break a company…a church…a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past…we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our attitudes. Charles Swindoll

Mass for the Bereaved
We had our Annual Mass for the Bereaved last Thursday where we remembered all of our loved ones who have gone before us.
We may have inadvertently omitted some names from the list and for that we apologise. One such name we omitted was Tom Pollard who was so involved in many events and fundraisers for SS Peter and Pauls and whose family was present at the Mass. All of our loved ones were included in our prayers on the night and continue to be remembered throughout November.
Our thanks to those involved in organising this special evening of remembrance.
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living. Marcus Tullius Cicero
