13th Sunday in Ordinary Time 1st July: Focus: Approaching Jesus with great faith allows him to be at work in our lives. – Today we hear of the woman who had such faith that she wanted only to touch Jesus’ cloak. Because of her faith, her brief encounter with Jesus was transformative in her life. It is her faith & his divine power that allowed her to be healed & changed. Let us approach Jesus with great confidence& faith, knowing that he can transform our lives too.

SYMPATHY: We remember in our prayers at this time: Monica Boland, Knocknaskeagh, Gurteen, (sister of Kevin Gaffney, Tubbertelly).

May the Souls of the faithful departed rest in peace.
