THE CHURCH OF ST. NICHOLAS OF MYRA - WELCOMES YOU




FIRST COMMUNION & CONFIRMATION

As the Government has moved us to Level 3 the First Communion which was due to take place on Monday 21 Sept and Confirmation on Thursday 24 Sept are now postponed. New dates can only be set when we move from Level 3 to Level 2. This is disappointing for everyone but the health and safety of our children and their families and those most vulnerable in our community must come first at all times.

CHURCH CLOSED (No masses for 3 weeks)

As Dublin City & County have been moved to Level 3, our church is now closed. The only Services permitted now are Funerals and Weddings. There is a limit of 25 people set for each of these services. This number has to include the priest, sacristan, one singer and one musician.

FRIDAY 25 SEPTEMBER

Luke 9:18-2

One day when Jesus was praying alone in the presence of his disciples he put this question to them, ‘Who do the crowds say I am?’ And they answered, ‘John the Baptist; others Elijah; and others say one of the ancient prophets come back to life’. ‘But you,’ he said ‘who do you say I am?’ It was Peter who spoke up. ‘The Christ of God’ he said. But he gave them strict orders not to tell anyone anything about this. ‘The Son of Man’ he said ‘is destined to suffer grievously, to be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes and to be put to death, and to be raised up on the third day.
 

Reflection

Peter's answer to Jesus' question seems rather sophisticated for a fisherman. What Peter sensed, was that Jesus was "of" God. What that means in simple terms is that Jesus was loved by the Father. His identity, his true name was "I am Loved". Because Jesus has drawn us into his relationship with the Father, this question also tells us who we are. We share Christ's identity - "We are Loved". To know who we truly are, to know our identity, is very important, because it gives meaning to our lives and tells us what to do with our lives. We are to share our identity with everyone we meet, so that they too can say "I am loved".
