FAILTE TO IMOLC/SPRING – ST. BRIGID’S DAY/ Lá Fhéile Bríde, Thursday 1st February 10am Mass in Caherline -  celebrates the arrival of longer, warmer days and saying goodbye to winter. “And the Day Came When the Risk to Remain Tight In a Bud Was More Painful Than the Risk It Took to Blossom.” – Anais Nin.

CELEBRATE ST. BRIGID (Fiery one/ Exalted one) - Patroness of Ireland. Flame of Welcome. Woman of Wisdom. Generous one. With your Cross, protect our homes. Convert our hearts, heal our sick. Herald of Spring, awaken new life. Warm my spirit. Nourish Easter hope. Bountiful Source, multiply God's gifts. Feed the poor. Nurture our hunger. Bless Ireland. Re-kindle the fire. Gather us in faith. Open our doors. Open our hearts. Turn strangers into friends, houses into homes, Sceptics into believers, death into life. Amen. (Fr. Liam G. Ryan O.S.A).

BRIGID is a great Role Model for us of confidence in the providence of God, of kindness, of the creativity of women and of healing – that through her intercession we pray healing for every person on this island and on the face of the earth. We rejoice that this year a holiday in her memory is celebrated.

St. Blaise’s Blessing Saturday 3rd February Caherconlish 6.30pm mass – ‘through the intercession of St. Blaise, Bishop and martyr, may the Lord deliver us from every ailment of the throat, from the virus and every other evil’.
