Heavenly Father, I adore and praise You! Thank you for all Your blessings
Now I ask You again for another favor, For You alone are the giver of all good gifts.
I beg You to grant me a complete and total healing of my spirit and soul, of my heart and will,
Of my emotions, memory and imagination
of my nerves, bones, and body. My entire being from the tip of my head to the soles of my feet
So I can be the person You want me to be and live the life You planned for me.
I pray that this healing will bring You honor and sanctify me and others.

Count your gains instead of your losses.

St Martin’s Well:
Each year a Prayer Service takes place at St Martin’s Well, Ballynacally to mark the occassion of the wonderful tradition of pilgrims visiting the Holy Well.  On St. Martin’s Day 11th November, every year, it is an inspiring sight to see the constant stream of pilgrims st martins wellmake their way to the shrine, some old, many in the full flush of youth, but all with a deep faith in the ability of the Saint to cure their ills. 

They kneel on the concrete surface of the sanctuary, pray and light candles. Only the murmur of the waters and an occasional gust of wind through the trees disturbs the silence.

Before leaving, they bathe their eyes with water from the holy well. It is widely believed that blindness, rheumatism and many minor ailments can be cured here. Some images HERE

Radharc na nOilean

Due to a shortage of priests the decision was taken to cluster parishes. Our parish will river shannon estuary islandscluster with Coolmeen, Cranny, Kildysart and more recently Kilmurry McMahon-Labasheeda is given the name Radharc na N'Oilean due to our proximity to the islands in the Shannon estuary. Masses for the Radharc na nOilean Cluster have changed to cope with this shortage of priests in the area.

The cluster will have fewer masses as a result. These new changes in Mass times came into effect beginning on the weekend of 5th/6th April 2014.

Prayer to St Therese
O Little Therese of the Child Jesus, please pick for me a rose from the heavenly gardens and send it to me as a message of love. O Little Flower of Jesus, ask God to grant the favors I now place with confidence in your hands . .
(mention in silence here)

St. Therese, help me to always believe as you did in God's great love for me, so that I might imitate your "Little Way" each day. Amen.

Family Prayer 
Dear Father, in Your beautiful book of Psalms, chapter 103 and verse 17, You give us this wonderful promise, "From everlasting to everlasting the Lord's love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children's children." What better promise could we receive from You in our lives than to see our children and children's children blessed with Your love and righteousness? We ask for Your hand of blessing on us as well. Bless us with strength to be there for those we love, and wisdom to know what to say to bring comfort, encouragement, and sometimes difficult truth. We will need Your patience as we wait for Your perfect will and way in each of our loved one's lives. We are so grateful, Lord God. Amen..
