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.
