Sunday Reflection

I love the image of the Incarnation, found in some early Christian writings, of Jesus as a powerful singer with a fine voice and perfect pitch who joins a discordant choir (humanity) and transforms it from within. The American Theologian and Writer: Richard Mc Brien, explains this further when he says ‘It is not that Jesus gave us a completely different set of songs to sing. He helped us understand, enhance and perform our standard repertoire in an entirely new and beautiful way’

One thought on “Killenaule and Moyglass Parish Newsletter 19th December 2015

  1. My sincere thanks to the people of Killenaule and the district generally for the comfort and support of our family during 2015. From the euphoria of Fr.George’s anniversary Mass to his own untimely funeral Mass within a very short period following was very painful for the family.
    I wish you all the Blessings of this festive season and may God hold in His warm embrace
    Michael Lyons
