  Photo was taken yesterday at ColŠiste Choilm, Ballincollig, Co.Cork (Irl)  
Brian Lougheed (Pictures Editor of Cork's Evening Echo) gave a talk to 60 students yesterday on all aspects of photography. Part of the talk was the importance of having a sense of fun when taking photographs. Our photo today was one such light hearted moment!

'Jesus taught us to love people and to use things. But in our society we use people and love things.í ~Richard Rohr

What a wise reflection and so true. We have placed great importance on things such as cars, clothes, gadgets and houses. Itís easy to try and be Ďone upí on others. Weíve got so used to it that we do it automatically. Thatís why we love things and sadly we have projected our sense of worth on what we have and what we own. The current recession though is a reality check for all of us. Happiness comes from within, so itís going to be much harder to find it if we expect it outside of ourselves. Jesus in our Gospels encourages us to use things and not love them. There is a world of a difference between the two. Most importantly we are encouraged to love each other, to respect difference and to nurture every bit of good news. The only time Ďone upí is allowed on someone is if itís a word of praise, encouragement or thanks.
