Lá Bealtaine (1st May Sunday or May Day in English). Bealtaine is one of the two big gateways in the Celtic year – out of winter into summer. A time to welcome in summer, a time to welcome growth and fertility. A time to celebrate the Sun in all its might and a time to put the animals to pasture after a considerable amount of times spent indoors out of the cold depths of winter. Great bonfires were lit on the eve of May. Bealtaine means bright fire. Whitethorn was both worn and used to decorate the home at Bealtaine. Birch is regarded as a feminine tree and Deities associated with Birch are mostly love and fertility goddesses. It is one of the first trees to show its leaf in Spring. Rowan is tree of protection and healing. May is also associated with Our Lady and praying the Rosary. O Mary! We crown thee with blossoms today ... Bring Flowers of the Rarest.

Our Love through our Trócaire Boxes this Lent: As our eyes and hearts open to the great sorrow in Ukraine, please let us also remember loving families who continue to suffer in terrible forgotten crises worldwide. In the face of Covid, poverty, and climate change, they are struggling for a future so far from the media spotlight that help won’t have a hope of reaching them unless we, together, act this Lent. Going days without eating, grieving with no one noticing, their future and the potential of this world, hanging in the balance. Please return your box over Easter. (It helps transferring to notes).
