Pope Benedict XVI

"Beauty... is not mere decoration, but rather an essential element of the liturgical action, since it is an attribute of God Himself and His revelation."
(Pope Benedict XVI, Sacramentum Caritatis, 35)

Last Sunday After Pentecost

Image source: Jerome Nadal SJ
The Mass is that of the 24th and Last Sunday After Pentecost.

"When therefore you shall see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet... For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be... Then if any man shall say to you: Lo here is Christ, or there, do not believe him. For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect."

"Heaven and earth shall pass, but my words shall not pass."

Extracts from the Sunday Gospel Matt. 24. 15-35.
Mass at 5pm, St Patrick's Church, College Rd, Kilkenny.
