Murroe-Boher Community Games: Congratulations to the U13 chess team who have qualified for the Munster final – Harry Fitzgerald, Karl Waldron, Evan Duffy, Rian Horgan, John Brouder and Josh Devlin. Well done also to the second U13 team consisting of Conor Barron O Donnell, Sean Murphy, Billy Moylan, Zindin Laihem and Tadhg McEllott, who did not succeed in getting through despite putting in a good effort’.

Reflection: The Eucharist is a place of encounter and revelation through which we meet and hear Jesus. When the scriptures are proclaimed at mass, it is Jesus himself who is speaking to us. When we present the Bread and Wine to the altar, the ultimate transfiguration and change takes place; they become the Body and Blood of Jesus and are freely offered back to us. When we celebrate the Eucharist with each other, we too are in the presence of Jesus, God’s chosen One, to whom we are asked to listen. It is then that we can truly say, “it is good that we are here!” As we continue our journey through Lent, may we listen to Jesus who has the message and words of eternal life.

Reflection: In the Old Testament, the Jewish People spent forty years in the desert. They came through and were formed in the desert. It was in the desert that God spoke to them. They were tried, tested and tempted in the desert. Eventually on their desert journey, they felt that God had abandoned them and they in turn abandoned God. They gave up and gave in. They famously created the calf made of gold and worshiped it instead of remaining faithful to God.

So, like his ancestors before him, Jesus now finds himself in the desert having being lead there by the Holy Spirit. He is about to begin his public ministry and mission but before he does, he too is going to be tempted and tested. Will he remain faithful to God or give in as his ancestors did? How will Jesus respond when he is tempted to turn away from God and his own mission? What will he do when he is offered, fame, power and wealth?

As a human Jesus was tempted, but he did not rely on his own strength or will power. He turned to God for guidance, help, support and encouragement. Jesus knew where his own inner identity and strength came from. He had the humility and wisdom to turn to God when he was tested and tempted. He knew that he was not on his own.

What about each us as we begin our own Lenten Journey? Lent offers us the opportunity to look at our own lives, not harshly with negativity or judgement, but with humility and compassion.

The temptation of Jesus in the desert reminds us that we are not alone when we face our own personal struggles during Lent. Can we invite God into our lives when we are being tempted, so that like Jesus, filled with the Holy Spirit we too will be strengthened to follow the path of discipleship and holiness?

Joseph Lennon will speak to us on “Place-names, People & Memory: A Century of Ambiguous Identity.” This lecture looks at some of the ways that the Irish state, almost a century after independence, inadvertently continues to remember its colonial past through place-names, buildings and monuments – while at the same time ignoring many of the state’s greatest patriots. Some topics to be discussed include: Why is a famous castle named after a hapless Norman king and not after its city? Why do infamous Elizabethan and Cromwellian soldiers still have places named in their honour? Who is responsible for the naming – or misnaming – of some our nation’s monuments? Admission €5 to non-members. All welcome.

Reflection: Today, on the Feast of Epiphany, it’s only appropriate to seek and find “some light in the darkness” as we turn to Isaiah the prophet and Matthew, the gospel writer, both of whom give us reason to hope, even now. In the first reading, we find Isaiah living in the Old Testament world; the people in Jerusalem are feeling the pain of exile and are shrouded by “darkness” and “thick clouds covering the earth.” However, Isaiah using poetic vision, confidently foretells that “dark and gloom” will be overcome by the radiance of God’s eternal light. The people are told “they will be radiant at what they see and their hearts shall throb and overflow” when the Messiah has come!!

Then the gospel of Matthew, reflecting New Testament times, puts us in touch with the visible sign of light and hope. The Magi from the East are looking for an epiphany – the manifestation – of the “newborn king, the promised Messiah.” They see his star at its rising, and it precedes them to the place where the child has come; they prostrate and do him homage. Instinctively, they know – without a doubt – that the light from this star is eternal and will shine forever to overcome all roots of darkness and evil. The star led them on their search for the Savior – and Scripture confirms that the everlasting “light came into the world”… no person of ill-will or act of violence will ever extinguish this light.

Reflection: The theme of family continues in today’s Gospel, as we hear the story of the Holy Family traveling to Jerusalem to celebrate Passover with relatives and friends.  Jesus is that wonderful age of twelve, when children love to challenge their parent’s authority.  Jesus is no different.  It isn’t until Mary and Joseph are traveling home in the caravan that they discover Jesus is not with them.  Any parent who has suddenly found their child missing can share their fear and anxiety.  Mary and Joseph go back to Jerusalem to search for Jesus.  When they finally find him they ask in relief and frustration, “Son, why have you done this to us?”  I am sure he got an ear full from his parents.  Yet Joseph and Mary did not understand that, even at twelve, Jesus knew why God the Father had sent Him to be among us.  The Holy Family returns to Nazareth and He stays obedient to them.  It is a comfort to know that the Holy Family faced the same challenges as we do today.
