       The Deep End : The Mountain Top – Reflection on this Sunday’s gospel
In the Scriptures, the mountains are often places where people encounter God. Jesus takes the disciples up the mountain top to pray, to a quiet place, away from all the attention of the crowds. They have the most wonderful experience as we read in the gospel today.                                                                      Can you recall a place where you have felt deep peace or a sense of experiencing God? In nature or in the places you go for ‘some time-out’ for yourself? Perhaps it is in special moments with family and friends; times of joy or sorrow. These “mountain-top” experiences nourish us, can bring us insights or help us to deal with difficult periods in our lives. They can bring feelings of euphoria, deep joy and blessing and often sustain us in life. No wonder the disciples wanted to build ‘three dwellings’ so that Moses, Elijah and Jesus would stay with them like this forever. However, we cannot remain in those experiences forever. Jesus’ way involves both time for encounters with mystery but also coming down from the mountain continuing on life’s journey and mission.
Can we carve out these moments of quiet in our busy days to be with the Word, to create the space to listen and make room for these encounters with the Lord? This week, imagine yourself in this story as you read ‘Jesus took me with him and went up on the mountain to pray...”        from Intercom
‘To pray the scriptures is to descend to the level of the heart and find God’      Michael Casey OCSO   

 

           

 

          “We are always on the side of life” - Archbishop Diarmuid Martin

 

Speaking at a Mass for the protection of life, which took place on 1 July in Dublin as thousands gathered for the annual Rally for Life march, Archbishop Diarmuid Martin said, “Being pro-life means that we are always on the side of life and life in its fullness. It means that we fight to avoid the emptiness of so many visions of our society and that we continually remember that we ourselves need conversion to Christ who is light and life. As believers in Jesus who is life and light, we must be in the forefront in doing what we can so that everyone can flourish in his or her own life. We are convinced of the value of every human life from the moment of conception until the moment of natural death.”                                        Read the full text of Archbishop Martin’s homily on catholicbishops.ie

 

 

          Be alert and open to ‘a new Pentecost in Ireland’ - Archbishop Eamon Martin

 

Archbishop Eamon Martin has said that he longs for “a New Pentecost in Ireland”, a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit to transform and renew the faith in Ireland. Archbishop Eamon was speaking at the Summit ’17 Conference in Croke Park on Thursday 13 July. Addressing the large gathering of young people, Archbishop Eamon said “I am convinced that the Spirit is actively at work in Ireland today preparing us for a new springtime of growth and abundance in faith. But this will only flourish if we are alert and open to the Spirit’s calling and gifting of many   people for the service of the Gospel in this time and in this place. The mission and challenge that we share as lay faithful, religious and priests, is to speak faith, hope and love into a world that is darkened by violence, war, greed and despair; a world that is divided more than ever into those who have and those who have not. Into this world the Spirit anoints us, gifts us, sends us out to renew the face of Earth.”
