24th November – Ss Andrew Dung Lac & Companions, Martrys of Vietnam

Had a routine chemo clinic today in Cork. Part of the treatment is a dose of steroids to be taken on the day and the following day. My sister Maureen saw a very remote connection between a Facebook picture and possible steroid use (present company absolutely excluded!!!).

Last night I went to the official launch of the Kerry Diocesan Pastoral Program for the next 5 years. Its title is BE CHRIST’S JOY. It is about spreading the Good News through a joy-filled Christian witness. After all, the idea of a sad witness to Good News doesn’t make much sense. Perhaps we can keep this in mind as we go about our daily living and witnessing to the Lord.
