Mohill St. Vincent de Paul
would like to thank everyone in Mohill and the surrounding parishes who contributed to their annual Christmas Appeal. All in all, €7,963 was raised by donations from businesses and individuals along with church-gate collections, the Luke Early Memorial Basketball Tournament and the Bornacoola NS Parents Association. This was one of our best Christmas fundraising campaigns ever and is a credit to the generosity of the community in these difficult times. This Christmas we focussed on the energy needs of vulnerable families and were able to provide substantial help due to the community’s generosity. This was very much appreciated as this is a big expense and burden for these families especially. If you find yourself in need of assistance or support, SVP Mohill can be contacted on 087 – 6776391.
Seeing your life through the Lens of the Gospels
Jesus’ compassion for people suffering was an outstanding characteristic of his ministry. We see the healing power of God at work through him. Recall times when the compassion of others has had a healing effect on you. Remember also when your compassion towards someone in trouble brought them hope, healing or strength.
‘If you choose, you can make me clean’. Our choice is a key factor in how we affect others. We cannot choose to have no impact on the people in our lives. Even a choice to do nothing has an effect. When have you been particularly aware of the importance of your choice to be a positive influence on another? Lepers were forced to live away from others. The leper’s cure meant that he was also readmitted to contact with the community. Perhaps you recall people who were once ostracized being brought back into family or community. Who was the Jesus person who helped this healing to take place? The joy of the leper on being healed was such that he could not keep the good news to himself. Bring to mind occasions when you were so filled with good news that you could not keep it to yourself
