Kilteegan Fathers: We welcome Fr. Willie Stack, a member of The Kilteegan Fathers to our Parish. Fr. Willie will speak in the three Church areas of our Parish this weekend.


Pray, don’t find fault with the man who limps or stumbles along the road,

Unless you’ve worn the shoes he wears, or struggled beneath his load.

There may be tacks in his shoes that hurt, though hidden away from view,

For the burden he bears- placed upon your back, might cause you to stumble too.

Don’t be harsh with the man who sins, or pelt with words or stones,

Unless you are sure, yes, doubly sure, that you have no sins of your own.

For you know perhaps that the tempter’s voice, should whisper as soft to you,

As it did to him, when he went astray, and would cause you to stagger too.

Don’t sneer at the man, who’s down today, unless you have felt the blow,

That caused his fall, or felt the shame that only the fallen know.

You may be strong, but still the blows that were his, if dealt to you,

In the same way, at the self same time might cause you to stagger too.

Just A Thought: Two Things Stand Out- “ Kindness in another’s trouble & Courage in your own.”
