I believe if you keep your faith, you keep your trust, you keep the right attitude, if you’re grateful, you’ll see God open up new doors.
Joel Osteen

Joseph’s son
A prophet is never welcome in his home town. This familiar saying paraphrases the words of Jesus in today’s Gospel: ‘I tell you solemnly, no prophet is ever accepted in his own country.’ We might find ourselves sympathising with Jesus on this front: that feeling that no matter what we have done in our adult life, in our homeplace we are still identified with the child we were or the family we came from. Sadly there are some who seem to delight in taking others down a peg or two and ensuring they don’t get ideas ‘above their station’.
Perhaps we ourselves have this tendency sometimes. We can be guilty of pigeonholing people, of silencing their voices because their message comes in the wrong package. We don’t always recognise the prophets among us. Do we listen to young people’s opinions? Do we dismiss the experience and wisdom of elderly people? Are we biased against certain groups of people, or do we shoot people down before they even speak, just because we have disagreed with something they said in the past?
Jesus, the carpenter’s son, faces this attitude in today’s Gospel. Returning home to Nazareth he impresses his former neighbours at first with his preaching. But as soon as he challenges them, they turn on him. They refuse to listen to his message of hope and inclusion. They hustle him out of town and attempt to throw him from a cliff. ‘Joseph’s son’ should not be speaking to them in this manner. Joseph’s son should know his place.

Bishop Cullinan has been informed by the management of South Tipperary General Hospital and the HSE, that they are no longer able to provide clergy with a list of parishioners who are Inpatients in the hospital. This is in compliance of GDPR. (General Data Protection Regulation)
While the clergy will still be available to attend the hospital to visit patients, we now have to be asked by family or the patient themselves to attend the hospital, to visit our parishioners. Please contact the parish office/contact the priests directly if you wish us to visit anyone in hospital which we will be happy to do.

The Diocesan Youth Committee is holding an information morning to showcase some of the youth initiatives that are available to all parishes in the diocese and country. I t is also an opportunity for us all to gather together to see what great work is going on in our respective parishes and to share ideas with each other. It will be an opportunity to meet people involved in groups such as Youth Alpha, Pope John Paul II Awards, Holy Family Mission, Altar Servers, Light Fever, and Summer Faith Camps among others.
We hope the day will give us all a way to inspire us to developing a stronger network of youth ministries across our diocese.
Please contact your local priest or parish council for more details and to register your interest in attending.
