Thank You

On behalf of Kilmyshall Parish, the Parish Council would like to thank the founder members of the Kilmyshall Penny bank, and all who helped to run it over the years. Also to Tom and Patricia Murphy of the Halfway House for the use of their premises for the last number of years. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be offered for their intentions


In today’s Gospel Jesus is surrounded by a culture of death. The disciples are afraid to go back to Bethany, the Jews want to stone Jesus to death, Mary and Martha are distraught over the death of their brother Lazarus, and Lazarus himself lies bound in the darkness of the tomb.

It appears as if there is no hope. Jesus weeps for his friend and those around him. Yet, surrounded by a culture of violence and despair, Jesus gives hope, compassion, and resurrection to those in turmoil. It is easy to say that nothing can be done when we are faced with difficult situations in our own lives. Yet Jesus says “Lazarus, come out” and to the people he says “Unbind him, let him go.” It is a message for all of us to come away from a culture of death; to help unbind one another and to allow ourselves to emerge from the tomb.

We are called to take away the stone. Today’s Gospel is a story of liberation. Jesus gives a new insight into faith over death. “Hope means to keep living amid desperation and to keep humming in the darkness. Hope is knowing that there is love, it is trust in tomorrow, it is falling asleep and waking to work when the sun rises. In the midst of a gale at sea, it is to discover land. In the eyes of another, it is to see understanding. As long as there is hope, there will also be prayer. And God will be holding you in his loving hands”
