Thought For Today by Fr Tom Clancy called 'Never Too Small'

In times of crisis, a common reaction is to blame our leaders. Church leaders know this only too well. Of course, like the rest of us, they too make mistakes and need to acknowledge this fact. But to lay the blame for all our ills on them is destructive and dishonest. Each of us has the opportunity to create cells of goodness and service wherever we are. Among believers, buck passing is often due to a crippling sense that we cannot see a way to make a worthwhile input into the life of God's Church. Too many believe that we are too small to count. We are not.

In Christ's time, Zacchaeus was too small to see Jesus passing by. Aware that life's chances do not repeat themselves, Zacchaeus moved quickly to offset this limitation. He climbed a tree. Looking Jesus in the eye changed his life.

We meet Jesus in and through one another. Responsibility for caring for people in need and for our environment belongs to each of us. Like Zacchaeus, we must find ways of seizing today's opportunities now and not leave it to the preacher. Otherwise we may never encounter Jesus. We are never too small to make a difference.

Thought For The Week

"We must remember that we are all called to 'mission' and this does not necessarily mean to work abroad or to only give financial support. It is not a coincidence that one of the patrons of mission is St Therese of Lisieux, even though she never left her convent. Her example shows that we are called to be missionaries in our own communities also. Can we be missionaries to our own families and to the people around us?" ~Jane Mellett

Last Sunday was Mission Sunday. It is celebrated each year towards the end of October. Mission Sunday is set aside to celebrate so many good and positive faith stories all over the world. God's presence is to be found in so many countries, cultures and different walks of life. While we mark so many good things happening in our world there are also sadly some horrible things happening too. In recent months and weeks, a day doesn't go by when we are reminded of the war in Syria and the devastation caused to places like Aleppo. It is completely outside our control as to what happens in places like Syria but we are encouraged to pray for peace.

We might say what's the point in trying to connect and pray for other countries? It really won't make much of a difference. Mission Sunday reminds us that it does. Mission makes sure that we don't lose our sense of who we are and that we are part of a bigger picture. Mission is not just about celebrating God's story in one particular area of the world but that somehow every country and person is connected in some way. Our faith and belief in God is deepened, enhanced and made more meaningful when we embrace diversity and other viewpoints. Mission Sunday is recognising that God often works quietly through each of us. When you begin to connect all our stories something really special is taking place. Mission Sunday is a celebration of that something special.

Thought For The Week

'A theology professor once recommended that we read poetry. Why poetry? Because it says what cannot be said. Preachers have to talk constantly about God, whom they have never seen. Poets do not try to box up and parcel God. They possess the great charism of humility before God's awesome mystery.' ~Michael McGrath

Poetry is alive and well and not something confined to the past. Many poems continue to be written each day. Many of these never get published but are written to express something personal and important. Many of them are hidden gems. Poems that in some way refer to God are often uplifting, open and honest because they simply do not attempt to box up and parcel God. The psalms are a collection of the most beautiful poetry we have. They are so beautifully written and are such an open and honest account of the writer's experience of God. The psalms do not put God in a box or do not wrap God in cotton wool.

A mistake of formal religion is to sometimes put God in a box or parcel and then add on the gift paper ready made. It can't be done and can often be out of touch with the experience of people at ground level. Everyone's experience of God is different which is why we always need an approach that is open, fresh and liberating. Poets do it naturally and there is a poet in all of us. One of my favourite poets and spiritual writers is the late John O'Donohue. His writings about God were always so fresh and beautiful. The following is one he called 'A Blessing'

A Blessing by John O'Donohue (1956-2008)

May the light of your soul guide you
May the light of your soul bless the work you do
with the secret love and warmth of your heart.

May you see in what you do the beauty of your own soul.
May the sacredness of your work bring healing, light
and renewal to those who work with you
and to those who see and receive your work.

May your work never weary you.
May it release within you wellsprings of
refreshment, inspiration and excitement.

May you be present in what you do.
May you never become lost in the bland absences.
May the day never burden.

May dawn find you awake and alert,
approaching your new day
with dreams, possibilities and promises.

May evening find you gracious and fulfilled.
May you go into the night blessed,
sheltered and protected
May your soul calm, console and renew you.

Thought For Today by Sheila Crowe

Support; an important word in our vocabulary today and very much so in our families. Where would any of us be without the support of the family which is the bedrock of society? Moses had his family, the Israelites of old, and note how they supported him, holding his hands on high, as he interceded for his people when they were engaged in defending the people. No cameras to record it, but what a sight it must have been and a wonderful family story.

We had a wonderful summer of sport this year. We had the thrills and spills of the European Cup, the Olympics and the GAA Championship. Our sportsmen and women did us proud and themselves too. Everybody wants to bask in the glory of coming out as number one. Only one can make it to the top and yet can we recall the frequency with which we secretly, or openly shouted 'God, O God, can they make it?'

God, O God: I wonder is He always listening! Could he ever be akin to the unjust judge, who even though, apparently, not interested in the dear old lady in the gospel story, granted her request to get her, as it were, 'out of his hair'. I wonder did he still have hair and how long was the widow pestering him. Isn't this how it is in some families? In the time of large families, it was noticed that younger members easily got what they wanted, their first disco, holidays away from the family, etc., in comparison with the struggle the first members of the family had to endure. Even parents give way to pressure perhaps because of weariness or it could be that they too acquire wisdom over the years.

Being human and trying to communicate with a divine being we use human concepts and the God we call on is sometimes likened to a parent who could possibly know what is best for the children. He may be slow in responding and we wonder why. Is the Almighty mind being changed or is it my request that is being modified?

Thought For The Week

"I have always, essentially, been waiting. Waiting to become something else, waiting to be that person I always thought I was on the verge of becoming, waiting for that life I thought I would have. In my head, I was always one step away. Through all that waiting, here I am. My life is passing, day by day, and I am waiting for it to start. I am waiting for that time, that person, that event when my life will finally begin." ~ Shauna Niequist

A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin, aged 4 and Tommy aged 6. The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake. The mother saw an opportunity for a lesson in life. She said, "Boys if Jesus were sitting here he would say, 'Let my brother have the first pancake. I can wait'." There was a pause, then Tommy turned to his younger brother and said, "Kevin, you can be Jesus!".

Waiting is something we are not good at. We live in such an instant world and everything is expected to happen immediately. Waiting for something is frowned upon and seen as unproductive. But from a spiritual point of view waiting can be productive and good. There are stories throughout scriptures of people waiting patiently for something special to happen in their lives. Putting their trust in God they waited patiently. Their patience was often rewarded.

We have to be comfortable in the waiting. The really good things in life are worth the wait. But if we are waiting for the perfect moment or the perfect event or the perfect someone special we are going to be disappointed. From a faith perspective we are encouraged as part of waiting to embrace and welcome every opportunity. When we are open to life in this way, what we are waiting for will find us. We pray that during the coming week we will be open to all forms of waiting.

A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin, aged 4 and Tommy aged 6. The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake. The mother saw an opportunity for a lesson in life. She said, "Boys if Jesus were sitting here he would say, 'Let my brother have the first pancake. I can wait'." There was a pause, then Tommy turned to his younger brother and said, "Kevin, you can be Jesus!".

Waiting is something we are not good at. We live in such an instant world and everything is expected to happen immediately. Waiting for something is frowned upon and seen as unproductive. But from a spiritual point of view waiting can be productive and good. There are stories throughout scriptures of people waiting patiently for something special to happen in their lives. Putting their trust in God they waited patiently. Their patience was often rewarded.

We have to be comfortable in the waiting. The really good things in life are worth the wait. But if we are waiting for the perfect moment or the perfect event or the perfect someone special we are going to be disappointed. From a faith perspective we are encouraged as part of waiting to embrace and welcome every opportunity. When we are open to life in this way, what we are waiting for will find us. We pray that during the coming week we will be open to all forms of waiting.

"I have always, essentially, been waiting. Waiting to become something else, waiting to be that person I always thought I was on the verge of becoming, waiting for that life I thought I would have. In my head, I was always one step away. Through all that waiting, here I am. My life is passing, day by day, and I am waiting for it to start. I am waiting for that time, that person, that event when my life will finally begin." ~ Shauna Niequist

'Carry this certainty ahead, the Lord is alive and walks beside you through life.' ~Pope Francis

There was some surprise when Pope Francis took the name Francis. St Francis whose feast day was yesterday was the inspiration. The pope has lived his life close to this down to earth saint. He is one of those rare saints who has managed to capture the attention and admiration of the entire world. His life has inspired people of all ages and the appeal of this saint, cuts across national boundaries and religious differences. He is most famous for his respect towards God, his simple life and his tender love and attention to all creation. Francis had little time for excess, waste and greed. He always stood up for the poor and downtrodden.

His love of animals has been well documented. Many animals and especially pets will get a special treat today in honour of St Francis. The life of Francis still challenges all of us today. The invitation is to sort through our lives and discard the unnecessary and useless. There is great freedom in doing with less and using it to our advantage. Francis did it so well and has inspired so many more to do the same.

'Angels have a hidden agenda - love.' ~Author Unknown

We all have a fear of isolation, loneliness and that we won't be able to manage on our own. It is a perfectly normal human fear. As a child we were reminded about our guardian angel watching over and protecting us. It was comforting and consoling to know that we had someone special looking after us. But our guardian angel journeys with us every step of our life's journey and not just our childhood. A guardian angel isn't fantasy or some form of magic. Our scriptures have many references to angels. They are real, active and can best be described as God's protective love very near and close to us. Last Sunday (Oct 2nd) was their feast day but especially of your guardian angel. A fitting prayer each day might be: "O Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God's love commits me here. Ever this day, be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen"

"You know well enough that Our Lord does not look so much at the greatness of our actions,nor even at their difficulty, but at the love with which we do them. ~ Therese de Lisieux

Last Saturday (Oct 1st) was the feast of St Therese and she is one of the most popular saints of our time. Her huge appeal is not that she did extra ordinary things but that she did the little things extraordinary well. She found that she was closest to God when she was doing the simplest and most mundane tasks. The spectacular and sensational always attracts interest and sometimes hype. Celebrities are always in the spotlight. But this was never a part of her life.

We may have many things planned for today and across the coming week. The chances are that much of it is nothing extra ordinary. It will not make headlines and most of it we have done so many times before. But the feast of St Therese reminds us that this is where life is meant to be. This is where life really matters. It is comforting to know that in the simple and ordinary events of our lives, we can be quite close to God. This is something we so often take for granted. Getting close to God is not reserved for the elite or the chosen few. For Therese she dedicated all the seemingly thankless and boring jobs to God. She often said, "I am doing this out of love for you my God." It is little wonder that so many feel drawn to Therese. Her understanding of life makes sense and deep down we know it is something we long for.

We ask her many blessings on each of us. We also reflect on how Therese found happiness and that it was always within her reach. It is also within our reach too. As we journey through this month of October, may we find more contentment and ease, in the simple, ordinary and down to earth moments that make up our every day lives.
