Our Mass of Remembrance was held on the 25th of November to remember those we have lost.
I WILL JUST SAY THIS
We bloomed in Spring.
Our bodies are the leaves of God.
The apparent seasons of life and death
our eyes can suffer;
but our souls, dear,
I will just say this forthright:
they are God Himself,
we will never perish
unless He does.
St Teresa of Avila

It was a really a beautiful service, the music and readings and Fr. Ciarán’s address were all very moving talking about the Bridge of Tears in Donegal – a place I know very well with a lot of wonderful family associations for me, it’s on the road to my Aunt’s house and Grandad’s homeplace in the wilds of remote north Donegal, a very beautiful place if you ever have the opportunity to visit.
