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.

TUESDAY 29 SEPTEMBER

John 1:47-51

When Jesus saw Nathanael coming he said of him, ‘There is an Israelite who deserves the name, incapable of deceit.’ ‘How do you know me?’ said Nathanael ‘Before Philip came to call you,’ said Jesus ‘I saw you under the fig tree.’ Nathanael answered, ‘Rabbi, you are the Son of God, you are the King of Israel.’ Jesus replied, ‘You believe that just because I said: I saw you under the fig tree. You will see greater things than that.’ And then he added ‘I tell you most solemnly, you will see heaven laid open and, above the Son of Man, the angels of God ascending and descending.’
 

Reflection

Nathaniel is an interesting character. He is only mentioned twice in John's gospel. To begin with he is sceptical about Jesus. But his meeting with Jesus changes everything for him. Jesus in his conversation with Nathaniel, refers to himself as 'Son of Man'. This reveals something very important about Jesus. He is the person, the place where God and Humankind meet and become one. This transforms Humankind. We as the Body of Christ and individually are the place where God is found. For this reason everyone we meet, no matter what we feel about them, must command our reverence and respect. The phrase "the Word was made flesh" is not simply a reference to a past historical fact, but to an ongoing revelation of Christ's presence in the world.
