 Feasts of the Week

Mon. 11th April: Saint Stanislaus, Bishop and Martyr

Wed. 13th April: Saint Martin I, Pope and Martyr

Saint Stanislaus: a story very similar to that of Saint Thomas of Canterbury, and from a similar period. Stanislaus became bishop of Krakow in Poland in 1071, and immediately took a stand against the brutality of King Boleslaus, eventually excommunicating him. Boleslaus replied by killing Stanislaus himself in 1097.

 

Pray for the Sick and Housebound and those who are known to you. May the Good Lord strengthen and comfort them. Pray also for all who care for the sick.

 

Grant eternal rest to those who have died recently.

Peter Quinn, Margaret Clavin, Patrick Walkin, Mae Cosgrove

 

Let your face shine upon those whose anniversaries are at this time. Amanda Kelly, Catherine Roche, Denise Lamb, Nellie Ahern, John McKenna, Padraig McGuire, Patrick and Martin Keane, Michael Tigue.

 

The rest of the world has settled back to normal after Easter holidays now, but we continue to dwell on the resurrection of Jesus and the growth of the Church. Today’s Gospel, which many people consider the most beautiful of the resurrection stories, has many themes: the failed fishing trip, the inability of Peter to recognise the risen Jesus, the miracle of the 153 fish and the simple, powerful reassuring words of Jesus to his confused disciples: “Come and have breakfast.” We can all find ourselves a place in this Gospel story, as we continue to wonder at the resurrection.

 

EXHIBITION OF THE SHROUD OF TURIN: This April Salford Cathedral is hosting an exciting opportunity to come face to face with the Shroud of Turin from Saturday 9th until Tuesday 19th April 2016. At the centre of the exhibition is a full-size colour photographic replica of the world-famous Shroud of Turin. Seeing a life sized copy is rare outside of Turin so this gives a great chance to contemplate this remarkable image. Please think about paying a visit to the exhibition and invite friends to come along with you!

Pope Francis said the Shroud “invites us to con-template Jesus of Nazareth.” “This face has eyes that are closed, it is the face of one who is dead, and yet mysteriously he is watching us, and in silence he speaks to us.”

 

ONE NIGHT ANNUAL EVENT: Next Sunday 17th April (5.00pm) you are invited to join Aid to the Church in NeedNorth West and the Jesuit community at Holy Name Church, 339 Oxford Rd, M13 9PG to mark the first anniversary of CAN’s overnight vigil for Iraqi Christians. The event will open with a personal witness talk on the Persecuted Church in Syria and Iraq, followed by the blessing of the ONE NIGHT icon, a reception, quiet reflection time, and concluding with Holy Mass at 7pm.
