LIVING EAST OF EDEN
How did today's gospel touch you? Has marriage breakdown or divorce touched your life? Your friendships? Your family? Do you fear it, like prey sensing a predator is near at hand?

Sometimes churches sidestep the issue. Marriage breakdown is so common and so sensitive that we avoid the subject, so as not to inflict more pain. It's hard to do justice to a God who hates divorce and loves the divorced, just as surely as he welcomed everyone, even children. We all get things wrong.
Our plan and God's plan were different. Eden is behind us. We live in a place characterised by weeds rather than flowers, dust rather then dew. East of Eden is a place, not of innocence, but of hardness of heart. We still live there today. Locks on our doors, police to protect us, people getting divorces.

At times we all need to return to the blueprint: things rarely work out as planned. Familiarity breeds contempt, friendships are broken and remade, fortunes lost and regained. Disappointment, illness and death all take their toll. Yet couples have lived and loved unconditionally through it all.
Living east of Eden was not God's plan. Little has changed since that first wedding of Adam and Eve. God still witnesses to human love.
'Heavenly Father, give husband and wife the courage to be for each other a
person rather than a title'

Tuesday 7th. Our Lady of the Rosary.
Thursday 9 St John Leonardi.
Saturday 11 St Canice, patron of the city of Kilkenny.
Blessed John XX111, the beloved humble Pope who opened the Second Vatican Council in 1961 is also honoured today.

 

QUESTIONS PEOPLE ASK
Q. When should the new 'mysteries of light' in the Rosary be recited.
R. Pope John Paul II suggests that the joyful mysteries be recited on Monday & Saturday: the sorrowful mysteries on Tuesday & Friday: the glorious mysteries on Wednesday & Sunday: and the new 'mysteries of light' on Thursday. Saturday, being traditionally Mary's day, is very suitable for the joyful mysteries, while Sunday is resurrection day and suited to the glorious mysteries. But he offers this plan only as a suggestion and respects the right of people to make their own choice.

DON'T BE A STRANGER
In Ireland, they tell of a man about 50 years ago who, as the local Abbey bell rang out the Angelus, doffed his cap and said his prayers. He shortly felt a firm, if familiar, tap on the shoulder -the parish priest. Pointing to the tower of the nearby parish church, he said: 'Wait for your own angelus bell!'

Clannishness: it's more than a matter of family blood, it's a way of living. A strong curse of humanity is its clannishness. Exclusivism, grabbing and getting are bad if totally understandable traits. Even within the same religious family, it lives on. Cliques develop, some are 'in', others are 'out'. Being straight about it: anything that causes another to feel an 'outside' is bad.

Still we persist: my family or lot must be first, my country above all, my social group - the others don't count. Grand if you can fit them in - but don't break into a sweat. 'Look to your own' tends to be the motto of humanity.

To which Jesus would add: 'Look to your own life' Accept that God's spirit is given freely to everyone. Rejoice in it. Avoid giving scandal by your lifestyle. After all, we pray 'Our Father' - not 'My Father'.

Fr Tom Cox, Longford

QUESTIONS PEOPLE ASK
Q. Is it true that the Holy Father has added five new mysteries to the Rosary?
A. The Rosary is a treasured way of meditating in Mary's company on the mysteries of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Pope John Paul II regrets the absence of the public ministry of Jesus from the traditional scenes, so he has suggested five 'Mysteries of Light' (prayed on Thursdays)
1.The Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan.
2. The Wedding at Cana.
3. The Proclamation of the Kingdom.
4. The Transfiguration.
5. The Institution of the Eucharist
We meditate upon these mysteries so that we might obtain what they promise.

DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR
It's very different from Jesus' time. We live in a society which is a far happier and safer place for children - compared to the first century when 60 per cent of children were dead by the age of 16. Even childless Roman couples adopted fellow adults as their heirs, not children: they were simply invisible, had no legal status and no value.

Jesus, by placing a child before bashful, power-seeking disciples, delivered a real slap in the face. The simplicity, trust and innocence of the young would not have been the first thought of those disciples. They got the clear message: 'Be alert,
would-be disciple! Whenever you encounter the invisible person you encounter the Kingdom of God coming to you'

All is changed now. Were it today, Jesus might speak to our petty squabbling by bringing us a nursing home. He would walk into a room and, in our presence, gently lift us a helpless, dependent old woman or man and say: 'This is what it's all about. This is the kingdom of God, and into this experience of humiliation and death, the Son of Man must go, because this person and everyone like her and you, too, mean so much to God. Followers, if you want to embrace God, embrace her. And anyone who welcomes her, welcomes God'.

ST VINCENT DE PAUL- 1580-1660
St Vincent's career in the Church was an upward path when his
spiritual director opened his heart to concern for others.
At that time the rich in France had no idea of the poverty
of ordinary people. Vincent worked in a country parish organising
food and clothing for the poor (which the St Vincent de Paul Society
continues to do). He saw that the poor needed spiritual care too
and set up the Vincentians to work in the village. He helped found
the Daughters of Charity, a new kind of Order, whose cloister
was to be the city streets.
St Vincent de Paul, you helped the rich to share: pray for us

BLESSING IN DISGUISE
'A thorn in the side' can be a blessing in disguise. A painful disguise sometimes!

To confess our sins to each other at the beginning of Mass can be mere public ritual. But in the silence of our hearts, a confession like St Paul's can be a profound expression of our need for God's grace and of our dependence on it - for those of us who:
· Are genuinely weak and not just ritually proclaiming ourselves so;
· Have genuinely sinned and are not just proclaiming that we did;
· Know that we could sin again given the appropriate circumstances
·
For all of us, this confession of St Paul is balm for the soul.CASHEL & ROSEGREEN

We are a gift to God; we are God's opportunity. Our weakness is a gift to us, something to be content with, even to boast about. In us, God's saving power is at its best - not like those solemn souls who look as if they have never had serious temptations, never mind sin in their lives.
So, if your past, your weakness, your sin, convinces you of the need to depend on God's grace - it is a blessing in disguise.
