Happy New Year to all our Parishioners in Athboy, Rathmore & Rathcairn.
Pope Francis appealed for a “culture of care” in his message for the 2021 World Day of Peace on 1st January.
“The culture of care … calls for a common, supportive and inclusive commitment to protecting and promoting the dignity and good of all, a willingness to show care and compassion, to work for reconciliation and healing, and to advance mutual respect and acceptance. As such, it represents a privileged path to peace. May we never yield to the temptation to disregard others, especially those in greatest need, and to look the other way; instead, may we strive daily, in concrete and practical ways, to form a community composed of brothers and sisters who accept and care for one another.”
