th Sunday in Ordinary Time 2nd August 2015.

On our road of life, there can be wilderness times. Times of aimless wandering. Times when we try to fill our
emptiness with what doesn’t satisfy. Sometimes we do manage to stay on the Way, taking steps that lead to life. Our
hearts are full of questions for God: ‘What must we do?’ ‘What sign will you give us?’ ‘What work will you do?’ But
when God answers, are we ready to believe? And God has some questions for us: ‘Will you follow my law or not?’ ‘Do
you believe in the One I have sent?’ ‘Did you hear properly when you were taught the truth?’ ‘Why are you looking for
me?’ ‘Have you seen the signs?’

Lynally Mass and Gathering Oct. 2014

Since 2007 a small number of parishioner, mainly from Lynally gathers for Mass or Rosary at the ruins of the old monastic church in and around the end of Sept. (Sept 26th is thought to be the Feastday of St Colman). Bad weather often kept people away but this year we were blessed with one of the loveliest evenings. It was sheer mystical and the setting sun shone across the 40/50 people who turned up to honour those who were buried in this cemetery. Those present were in no hurry to go home but lingered and chatted to one another for a long time after Mass. Once again thanks to Mattie Mooney and the Mooney Family for facilitating us each year for this event. But it is disappointing that the Council is no longer cutting the grass in this graveyard and if OPW does not act soon the walls of the old Monastery will come toppling down with the weight of ivy. And what a shame that would be. Can anyone champion the cause of LYNALLY. Please.
