Watch the record of time, every day, bit by bit disappear, every turn a circle, back to rolex replica the starting point, but still has been walking. A friend and I said that watches on behalf of enduring as the universe, the girl sent to you, all for your feelings can be a long long time. Watch is a concentrated expression of a man's taste in hublot replica life. Men generally only from the watch, pen (ball point pen), wallet, leather belt, leather bags on the choice and wear to show their fashion and taste. However, due to the leather wallet, leather bags are often slightly cumbersome and covered by women's fashion, so the choice of masculine men tend to watch and pen. The watch omega replica also embodies the pursuit of a man's life and grasp the future of tolerance.

Urgent information from Bishop Larry Duffy;

At a meeting yesterday of the Northern Bishops, it was agreed that every parish in the North would be encouraged to promote the following initiatives in response to the proposed introduction of legislation by Westminster on 21 October, allowing for unregulated abortion in Northern Ireland. These initiatives were highlighted in the recent joint statement by the Church Leaders in Ireland. You are asked, if possible, to highlight these initiatives in your parish bulletin and/or announcements this weekend and over coming weeks.

 

  1. In their recent joint statement, the Church leaders of Ireland have called for the weekend of 12-13 October to be dedicated to prayer for the  protection of the unborn in our society and for women facing difficult and challenging pregnancies and their families. This is in response to the proposed introduction by Westminster of legislation on 21st October allowing for unregulated abortion in the North.  In addition to other prayer initiatives, you may wish to say and distribute the ‘Choose Life Prayer’ of the Irish Bishops’ Conference. It is available at the web site of the Bishops’ Conference or through the following link: https://www.catholicbishops.ie/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/prayer-for-the-unborn-prayercard-web.pdf
  2. Please support the online petition by Baroness Nuala O’Loan calling on the Secretary of State and Members of the Northern Ireland Assembly to take action to prevent unregulated abortion being introduced to the North by Westminster on 21st October. The petition can be found online at Change.org (search for Nuala O’Loan).
  3. Please contact your local MLA and ask them to take action to stop the introduction of unregulated abortion to Northern Ireland by Westminster on 21st October. You can find contact details for your MLA online at www.bothlivesmatter.org/findmyMLA . You can also send a postcard to your MLA. You can order the postcards for you or your Parish, free of charge, by contacting Both Lives Matter at tel. 028 90739079 or 07976414817, or by email atstand@bothlivesmatter.org

 

Thank you for your support for this important initiative at this critical time.

Bishop of Clogher

Pope establishes Sunday of the Word of God

 

Pope Francis has (on the Feast of St Jerome) established that the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time is to be marked as Sunday of the Word of God. An Apostolic Letter to this effect, issued motu proprio (by the Pope himself) and entitled 'Aperuit illis', was published in Rome earlier today. 

Pope Francis asks that we, as local communities, 'mark this Sunday with a certain solemnity'. He highlights the link between the Word of God and the sacraments, the emphasis placed on Scripture by Vatican II, the importance of study of Sacred Scripture, as well as the ecumenical value of such a Sunday (coming in or around the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity) as being among the considerations that prompted him to take this worthy initiative. 

Even the title of the document points to the action of Christ in opening our minds to the Word of God. There may be some opportunities for parishes to explore options in this regard. 

Sunday of the Word of God in 2020 will fall on Sunday 26 January - the day after the end of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

Bishops alarmed at rush to remove rights of the most vulnerable

With the thousands of others who have voiced their concern in recent days, we wish to express our alarm at the unprecedented way in which the Westminster Parliament has used the Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill to rush through legislation which will have a devastating impact on the right to life of unborn children.

 

The equal right to life, and love, of a mother and her unborn child is so fundamental to the common good of every society that citizens deserve the fullest participation in the democratic debate about the legislation which governs it. This also applies to decisions regarding the nature of marriage.  What is happening in Westminster during these days recklessly undermines this fundamental right of citizens and the principle of devolution at the heart of the Good Friday Agreement. It should be a matter of grave alarm for every citizen in Northern Ireland and all who cherish the right to life as the most fundamental of all human rights.

 

We appeal to the Prime Minister and Westminster Government to move to overturn this hijacking of the Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill for purposes for which it was never intended and to uphold the right of citizens in Northern Ireland, under the Good Friday Agreement, to decide these matters for themselves. We appeal to all citizens in Northern Ireland, to give expression to their commitment to the care of every mother and unborn child by asking their political representatives to ensure the equal right to life is upheld in our devolved legislation.

Pollinator – Friendly management of Church lands, schools, graveyards etc.

(As advocated by the All-Ireland Pollinator plan 2015-2020)

 

Our Pollinators & Why We Need them

In Ireland some plants are pollinated by the wind –but most are pollinated by insects -mostly bees. There is one type of managed bumble bee and 98 different wild bees. To protect pollination we need healthy honeybees but also an abundance and diversity of wild bees and other insects like flies, moths and butterflies.

 

It is important we protect pollinators from chemicals that harm them. Insecticides harm them directly but equally harmful are the use of herbicides which kill the wild flowers that pollinators need to survive.

 

One third of the 99 bee species are threatened with extinction on the island of Ireland. If we want them to be there to pollinate crops and wild plants for future generations we need to manage the landscape in a more pollinator -friendly way. 

 

Everyone from farmers, to councils, local parishes, business, schools garden and transport authorities have a part to play.

 

FIVE Ways to make the gardens and fields around churches pollinator friendly

1. Maintain native flowering hedgerows –Whitethorn, Wild Rose, Honeysuckle 

2. Plant pollinator-friendly trees –Willow, Blackthorn, Rowan, Crab apple, Wild cherry

3. Cut the grass less often –to allow common wild-flowers like dandelions, clovers, Knapweed and Bird’s -foot –trefoil to grow in the long grass.

4. ELIMINATE HERBICIDE –many weeds like Knapweed are important sources of food for pollinators

5. Provide nesting places for wild bees- leave wild grass at hedges uncut from March until October

 

“Cutting, mowing and spraying so that the countryside looks tidy-to us -means that we are squeezing nature out and risk losing its important free services like pollination.”

 

Protect pollinators so that you can grow your own fruit and vegetables; 

shop for local produce and have flowers and wild-life in your local landscape.

 

ACTION: HELP RAISE AWARENESS –USE SIGNS AT YOU SITE TO SHOW IT IS A POLLINATOR -FRIENDLY ZONE

(Fr. Seán McDonagh, Columban Eco-theologian has published a Guideline Document for Faith Communities last year. You’ll find a copy of this guide here.

THE NATIONAL BIODIVERSITY DATA CENTRE is an all-island organisation that collects and manages data about Ireland’s wild-life and is based in  WIT West Campus, Carriganore, Waterford. The contact person is Dr Una Fitzpatrick.)
