  Photo was taken at Counihans, Pembroke Street, Cork (Irl)  
I celebrated a little 40th birthday over the weekend!! I had to share a photo of the birthday cake with you today. A camera had to come in somewhere!! As the slices were being cut the cake began to shrink fairly quick but I managed to get a close up shot of the camera sitting right on top of the cake. The masterpiece of a cake was made by Mags Guilfoy from Coláiste Choilm, Ballincollig.


Thought on Monday - April - 27/04/2009

The background to the Thought For Today is that the relics of St.Therese are on tour across Ireland at the moment visiting many churches right up to May 10th.

‘Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.’ ~Confucius

The relics of St.Therese of Lisieux will be in Macroom today from 4pm until 12 noon tomorrow. Huge crowds are expected to visit St.Colman’s Church in Macroom. The theme of the visit of these relics is from St.Therese herself: “Sowing peace and joy in every heart.” St.Therese is often called the ‘Little Flower’ and her short life has inspired millions of people making her one of the most popular saints. She died when she was 24 and in that time she didn’t do much. She never went on the missions and she never made headline news. Yet she lived her life so simply and encouraged others to do the same. She often said that God is to be found in the simple and ordinary moments of everyday life. It is for this very reason that so many people can connect with Therese. Her life and her message make sense. Even if we can’t get to Macroom to visit the relics we can pray to her, asking Therese to sow peace and joy in our hearts and in everyone whom we would like to include in our prayers today.
