Celebrating 120 Years of Priesthood   On 21st February 1959 at different ceremonies in Rome, two young men, one from Tipperary, the other from Galway were ordained to the priesthood. Willie Walsh was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Killaloe. Cletus Noone was ordained a Franciscan Priest; sixty years later these two men find themselves in ministry in Ennis. Bishop Willie as Bishop Emeritus and Fr. Cletus as a member of the Ennis Franciscan Fraternity. 
Bishop Willie has lived almost all of his priesthood in Ennis serving as Teacher, Priest and Bishop. 
Fr. Cletus has served in different Friaries and in best known for St. Anthony’s Novena each Tuesday and his weekly Radio Show on a Saturday night on Clare FM. As both men give thanks for the blessings of the last sixty years, we join with them in thanking God for blessing us with two great priests. We wish both Bishop Willie and Fr. Cletus continued blessings, for good health and many more years.

Live the Word
A New Year is always a great opportunity to make a fresh start. Perhaps there is something in your life yourself you wish to change or let go of. Ask
yourself “what are the steps I need to make to create this”? Change allows for great personal growth which will be reflected in your life or within.

Thought for the Week:

 

'Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone's face? Did I say words of healing?

Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love?

These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now

will bear many fruits, here in this world, and in the life to come.'       (Henri Nowuen)
