The Spirit, elusive and ‘blowing where it will’, is not as unknown to us as we sometimes think. That we cannot confine and define its nature does not mean we do not know it. 
Curiously, we know  and recognise the spirit manifest in the light and liveliness, the creativity or energy, the wisdom or the reverence in the life of the other. 
For it is through others that the Spirit ministers to us. 
And it is we who can draw out the Spirit in the other. We know it less well in ourselves and squirm self-consciously when others mention our own creative Spirit. 
But the Spirit dwells in our hearts so that it can minister beyond itself, so it can ‘matter’ in the life of another.       (Gertrud Muller Nelson)

Beatification of Oscar Romero (Saturday 23rd May)
Archbishop Romero was a courageous and inspirational leader with whom Trócaire was honoured to work and support. He was a close friend of Trócaire’s, as well as a valued partner. He was a man who used his conviction of faith and his position as Archbishop to defend and protect the weakest members of society. He was an outspoken champion of the powerless and the poor, and was ultimately murdered for his unflinching defence of human rights.

What is Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament? And why is it being renewed in this Parish soon? Find out at Masses on the weekend of 14th June.
