Prayer for Pentecost:

Christ has no Body

Now on earth but yours,

No Hands but yours

No Feet but yours.

Yours are the Eyes through which

Christ’s Compassion is to look out to the world.

Yours are the Feet by which he is

To go about doing Good.

And Yours are the Hands

By which he is to Bless us now.                 (St. Teresa of Avila).

Message from Fr. Crawford: Bishop Brendan Leahy will celebrate the Mass for Pentecost Sunday in St. John’s Cathedral (next Sunday) at 12.00 noon.  All families who have children preparing for Confirmation this year in particular, are invited to tune in to this Mass – live streaming – St Johns Cathedral Limerick.  There will be a special emphasis and focus on Confirmation with a Ceremony of Light.  So please tune in with your family.
