Reflections from Limericks 2018 Novena

From June 15th - 23rd, Limerick celebrated its solemn novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Again this year family was a focus of the novena with the theme of this year’s Novena being “Celebrating Family”. 

On this weeks radio programme we share two of the reflections recorded from the novena:
  • Fr Peter Hill gives us his reflection on a just household
  • Ann Walsh gave us her reflection on family and understanding family.
You can listen to these reflections excerpted from the main SS102fm programme podcast HERE.

Gospel - Mark 9:18-26


He left that place and came to his home town, and his disciples followed him. On the sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were astounded. They said, ‘Where did this man get all this? What is this wisdom that has been given to him? What deeds of power are being done by his hands! Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon, and are not his sisters here with us?’ And they took offence at him. Then Jesus said to them, ‘Prophets are not without honour, except in their home town, and among their own kin, and in their own house.’ And he could do no deed of power there, except that he laid his hands on a few sick people and cured them. And he was amazed at their unbelief. Then he went about among the villages teaching.
