28th June 2009 Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time Portlaoise Parish Sunday Masses www.portlaoiseparish.ie St. Peter & Paul’s Church Assumption, The Heath 29th June Feast of Sts. Peter & Paul We become attached to the celebrities in our T.V. soaps, but the directors are always keen to point out, that no celebrity is greater than the show itself. It is very Sunday 9:30am easy on this feast day to get caught up by the larger than life personalities of Peter Holy Cross, Ratheniska and Paul. This is understandable, both men lived and died with a passion that we Sunday 10am imagine beyond us lesser mortals. But it’s in imagining that we are lesser mortals that we defeat the example of these great men. Neither man would have wanted to be put on a pedestal. Neither man would want us to imagine that their examples Scoil Bhrid, Knockmay were impossible to emulate. Neither man would want to be a celebrity. Saturday: 6:15pm Both men went to their deaths proclaiming that Jesus was the Son of Parish Church God. Both Peter and Paul wanted Jesus’ legacy to touch every Saturday: 7:30pm generation and they would be the first to say that the work of the Church is down to each and every one of us, not just a couple of Sunday: 8:30am celebrities. It’s when we read about the lives of men like Peter and Paul 10:00am, 11:15am & that we realise how much passion we lack. It’s not as though the job of 12:30pm spreading Jesus’ message is done and dusted, we only have to look at Daily Mass conflict and injustice in our world to know this can’t be true. Its not as Parish Church though there are enough people evangelising on our behalf, we only 7.30am & 10am have to be in the middle of a situation where no one speaks out to know Parish Radio 106.5fm this. It’s not as though people in this part of the world are crucified any Parish Office Tel: 8621142 more for their beliefs, the worst we would have to face is a bit of Priests of the Parish ridicule. It’s not as though we can’t make time in our busy schedules for Msgr. John Byrne P.P. God, after all, we can always find time to visit the shops or the corner 057 8692153 pub. By sitting back and watching others do the work we are in great danger of becoming nothing more than ‘armchair Catholics’. Are there Fr. Paul Fitzpatrick C.C. 057 8621671 any excuses left for not following in the footsteps of these great saints? Fr. Joe O’Neill C.C. 057 8661139 Mass times Celebrating God’s Gift of Fr.
