 1st Reading I: 2 Maccabees 7:1-2, 9-14

Psalm 17: I love you, Lord, my strength.

I love you, Lord, my strength,
my rock, my fortress, my saviour,
My God is the rock where I shelter,
my shield my mighty help.
I love you, Lord my strength.

The Lord is worthy of praise,
He saves me from all my foes, 
Long life to the Lord, God my Saviour,
All praise to God who saves. 
I love you, Lord my strength.

 I thank you, Lord, for your love. 
I praise you for all your kindness, 
I love you, O God, for your goodness,
I love  you, Lord my strength.
I love you, Lord my strength.

Reading II: 2 Thessalonians 2:16-3:5

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia. 
Stay awake and stand ready for you do not know the hour when the Son of man is coming. 
Stay awake!  You do not know.   Alleluia. . . .

Gospel: Luke 20:27-38 or 20:27, 34-38

For all Christians: that we may be open whatever God calls us to do in witness to the truth and in loving service of other.   Lord, hear us . . .

For all who are fearful of death: that they may discover God’s faithful and life-giving presence with them, and grow in trust of God who is faithful to us in both life and death.  Lord, hear us

For the well-being of all the people of our country, that in times of economic hardship those who are most vulnerable will not be further disadvantaged.  Lord, hear us

For peace throughout the world, and particularly in Israel and Palestine, and in Iraq and Afghanistan.    Lord, hear us

For all who are ill and for those who care for them, that they may experience the healing touch of God in their lives: 
including Eileen Donaghy, Margaret McCafferty, Moira Montgomery, John Quinn,  Alan Hutcheson,Gallagher, Jean Martin,  Sadie Coll, Margaret Lanigan, Kenneth Fee, Peter Gibson, Cathy and Leo Gilbert,  Linda Giulianotti, Kathleen Mallon, Joe McGhee, Margaret Padden, Liam Brogan,  Fr Joseph Chambers, Cathy Bruce, Jane Henderson, Mary McKenna, Anne & Bernard McNiffe,  Mary O’Hare,  Anne McMahon, Margaret Duffy,  and Mark Callaghan.    Lord, hear us

 We remember those who have died including
Betty Pope, Rosemary Quinn, Gordon McCoard, Molly Rafferty, and Brother Paul Peter,
all those whose anniversary falls about now, including  Bernard Corrigan and Toby Rowe,  
all our deceased friends and relatives and fellow parishioners.
We also pray for those who have been injured or killed while serving in the armed forces.  Lord, hear us . .

 The Preparation  of Gifts

Though  Jesus Christ was in the form of God,
he did not count such equality to be grasped.

Instead, he freely emptied out himself,
and took the form of a servant, was born like us.

In human form he chose humility,
and gave himself up to dying upon a cross.

Because of this our God exalted him, and raised him
gave him a name above every name.

At Jesus’ name now every knee should bow
be they in heav’n or on earth or creation’s depths.

St Gregory with the memorial: Christ has died. .  and Lamb of God. . .

I come that you may have life, life to the full, says the Lord.
I come that you may have life, life to the full, says the Lord.

Where true love is dwelling, God is dwelling there. Love’s own loving presence love does ever share.
Love of Christ has made us out of many one. In our midst is dwelling God’s eternal Son.

 Give him joyful welcome, love him and revere,  cherish one another with a love sincere. 
As in Christ we gather discord has no part; ours is but one spirit but one mind and heart.

May we share the vision with the saints on high, of Christ’s matchless glory when we come to die.  
Where true love is dwelling, God is dwelling there. Love’s own loving presence love does ever share.

Eileen Duffy writes:  This was my 3rd Marathon, but they don’t get any easier! The good people of Dublin were unbelievably LOUD in their support of the runners. We had perfect weather conditions, very sunny, bright & cold. My finish time was 4 hrs 36 mins, a personal best for me. I have probably raised about £600 but I will confirm the actual total. Thank you all once again for your donations and very kind support.     


Social Committee:  Halloween Party
A big vote of thanks to all who helped out at the Halloween party last Sunday. There was an excellent turn out and, thanks to the generous support of so many parishioners, the children had a great time. There are plenty of edible, strangely coloured Halloween goodies left so come and have a spooky cookie or a witch’s chocolate finger with your tea after mass.
