Still waiting for a response from the Irish Catholic Bishops Conference - to ACI's Report on lay Involvement in Parishes - and with our church crisis deepening daily - we wonder if the ongoing pandemic can shake our clerical leadership out of its inertia before Irish clergy become extinct.
Conscious that all Minds and Hearts -across this whole planet, our only Home - will now be joined in the deepest prayer for those endangered, and for their rescuers - we await in confidence the Lord who crosses the deep to save us all - to lead us to the very different World - and different Church - that awaits.
And here we offer the ever-trustable gateway to the future: our globally known Prayer Page:

Saint Pope John XXIII’s Prayer for a New Pentecost
"Come Holy Spirit, Renew Your wonders in this our day, as by a new Pentecost. Grant to Your Church that, being of one mind and steadfast in prayer with Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and following the lead of blessed Peter, it may advance the reign of our Divine Saviour, the reign of truth and justice, the reign of love and peace. Amen."Saint Pope John XXIII, 1962 - In preparation for Vatican Council II, 1962-65.
