Prayers of the faithful
Priest:  Dear God, we have listened to your Word, and in   response we offer you now the prayers of our hearts.
We thank God for all the gifts and talents among us, for the unique gifts with which the Spirit blesses each one of us.  Lord, hear us.
We pray for those who do not know their own gifts and who have little confidence in themselves.  Lord, hear us.
We pray that we may be a community of encouragement, helping each other to rejoice in all that we have to give.  Lord, hear us.
We thank the Lord for all who serve in different ministries in our parish, using their gifts for the good of others.  Lord, hear us.
We pray for all who have died.  They are children of the light.  May Christ bring them to everlasting day.  Lord, hear us.
Priest:  May God, who created each one of us, teach us to cherish the beauty within, to appreciate the gifts of others, and to be thankful for the enrichment that such a variety of gifts brings.  Glory be to The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit, Amen.

Recently deceased:  Paddy Murphy, Oriel Park.

Fact:  Argene Heitz (1908-1989), the Frenchman who designed the European Flag admitted 30 years later that he got the idea for the 12 stars from The Miraculous Medal (which was given to Saint Catherine Labore by The Blessed Virgin in 1830). The flag was officially unfurled on December 8th 1955 - the Feast of the Immaculate Conception! Taken from Ireland's Own magazine.
