Passion Sunday

Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cause from the nation that is not holy: deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man: for Thou art my God and my strength. Send forth Thy light, and Thy truth: they have conducted me, and brought me unto Thy holy hill, and into thy tabernacles.  Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cause.
Mass at 5pm, St Patrick's Church, College Rd, Kilkenny, Sunday 6th April.
