SOLT Christmas Novena: This year a novena of 9 Masses will be said in Lettermacaward parish beginning on Christmas Day. If you would like to enrol friends/family in the novena you can order the cards by emailing me at soltlondon@hotmail.com with your address and the number of cards required. Samples of the cards are given below. Recommended donation is €2.50/£3.50 per card plus €1/£1 for posting. The names of those to be included in the novena can be sent to me by email or regular mail (Parochial House, Lettermacaward, Co Donegal, Ireland) and these will be placed in a basket before the altar during the novena period. Proceeds benefit the training of SOLT seminarians and the SOLT sisters’ missions.

Today’s reading for Midmorning Prayer (1 Cor 10:24,31) is a commendation to selfless living. What a different world it would be if we all tried to live like this.

Nobody should be looking for his own advantage, but everybody for the other man’s. Whatever you eat, whatever you drink, whatever you do at all, do it for the glory of God.
