Thanks also to The Cope who sponsored our hamper. Go raibh mile maith agaibh go leir.Gospel Reflection taken from Pentecost Sunday Year B John 15:26-27Jesus said to his disciples: “When the Advocate comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who issues from the Father, he will be my witness. And you too will be witnesses, because you have been with me from the outset.”The disciples – Mary of Magdala, Peter, John and all the others – had experienced the resurrection. They knew Jesus had been raised from the dead – they had met him, talked with him, even eaten with him. But somehow, knowing about the resurrection is not enough. It is as if that knowledge and experience are being held onto as something private and personal. What happens at Pentecost changes every thing. The Spirit of truth is given so that all those who receive it will be sent out, will be witnesses to the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Instead of being turned in on themselves the disciples are turned outwards and sent out to bring the good news. As we hear from the first reading in Acts2:1-11 not even the barriers of language can stand in their way.Do we see faith primarily as something private and personal, given to us for our own comfort and salvation?As individuals, families and parish communities do we know ourselves to be gifted by the Spirit and sent out to be witnesses to the good news?Where in our own lives are we called to be witnesses? What does that mean in real terms? How comfortable are we with that?First Holy CommunionPlease remember Lexie Oglesby Grogan, Aoife McGonagle, Owen Gallagher, Matthew Comiskey, Aoibhe Boyle, Owen Doherty, Holly Doherty, Jamie McCready, Finn Nicholas, Chloe Murphy, Orla McCready, Seamus Doherty, Jack Ward, Liam McCann, Seamus McCann, Ethan Sharkey, Harriet Quested and Liam Boyle in your prayers as they made their first Holy Communion this weekend.

‘Won’t budge on citizenship Bill’

first_imgNational People’s Party supremo and Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K. Sangma on Monday said the party will continue to oppose the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill. “Meghalaya was the first State to oppose the Bill and raise objection. We took the initiative to unite different political parties of the Northeast and made our voice heard in Delhi and ensured that the Bill was not introduced in Rajya Sabha,” Mr. Sangma said while campaigning for the party candidate in the Lok Sabha poll in Tura constituency. He claimed that the NPP is the only party that can unite the voice of the region and make it heard in Delhi. Mr. Sangma asked the people to vote for his party as “NPP is the party of the Northeast.” Three ralliesThe NPP chief on Monday flew to three different locations in the North Garo Hills and the East Garo Hills (Rongrong Abema, Mangsang and Chibonga) to campaign for his sister Agatha, the NPP candidate for the Tura Lok Sabha seat.Former CM Mukul Sangma is the Congress candidate for the seat while the BJP has fielded Rikman G. Momin.‘Wrong notion ’ The NPP chief alleged that the Congress is propagating a wrong notion that his party will partner with the BJP and ensure that the Bill is passed in the Lok Sabha.He added, “We will remain true to our commitment to the people of the Northeast and will never allow any Bill that would hamper the interest of our people.” Mr. Sangma also claimed that the NPP has “fulfilled” its promise made in the 2018 election with education as its top priority. “We had promised an education policy and we brought out the policy well before the completion of one year. For over four decades, the education department had to work without any policy or direction, we have scripted a direction to move forward to ensure better educational facilities in Meghalaya,” he said. The NPP chief said that based on the education policy, the Meghalaya government approached the Union Ministry of Tribal Affairs and was accorded 11 Eklavya Residential Model Schools, out of 50 such schools across India. He said that if Ms. Agatha was elected as an MP, she will add to the initiative started by the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance government and will voice its concerns in the Parliament.last_img read more

FIFA World Cup 2014 Match preview: Croatia confident it can stun host Brazil in opener

first_imgCroatia’s Luka Modric, right, Ivan Rakitic, left, and Danijel Pranjic practice during an official training session the day before the group A World Cup soccer match between Brazil and Croatia at the Itaquerao Stadium in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Photo by Kirsty Wigglesworth(AP)A confident Croatia is ready to spoil Brazil’s party in their World Cup opener and continue a long tradition of first match upsets at the tournament.With all the pressure on the host team, Croatia coach Niko Kovac said Wednesday that his team can deliver a “historic result” in Thursday’s match in Sao Paulo.Kovac acknowledged that Brazil is the clear favorite in the Group A game, but added that few teams would like to face his squad either.”They are not going to have it easy against Croatia,” he said at Itaquerao Stadium. “We are a tricky side and I am sure that we will show that and demonstrate that tomorrow.”Even a draw would significantly enhance Croatia’s chances of advancing from a group that also includes Mexico and Cameroon.It would also deliver a blow to Brazil – a clear tournament favorite – and join the list of opening game upsets that include Belgium’s defeat of defending champion Argentina in 1982 and holder Italy being held to a 1-1 draw by Bulgaria four years later. Cameroon then defeated defending champion Argentina in 1990 while reigning champion France lost in 2002 to a Senegal side making its first appearance at the World Cup.”I am sure and convinced that tomorrow this team can create a historic result,” Kovac said.advertisementThe team has surprised before.Back in 1998, no one believed that Croatia – still recovering from a bloody civil war in the Balkans in the early 1990s – could possibly finish third in its maiden World Cup. But with Real Madrid striker Davor Suker leading the way, it did.The current squad includes top players like Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric and Sevilla captain Ivan Rakitic, who earlier Wednesday told Croatian media he would be joining Barcelona next season – where he will team up with Neymar, his opponent on Thursday.However, Croatia will have to face Brazil without prolific Bayern Munich striker Mario Mandzukic, who is suspended after being red-carded during Croatia’s playoff against Iceland last November – the team’s final hurdle on its way to the World Cup.Team captain Darijo Srna said Croatia would rely on its fighting spirit in Thursday’s opener.”I can’t promise that we will beat Brazil but I can promise that we will give our all, to the last atom of strength,” he said.The team’s notoriously boisterous fans appeared equally optimistic.Dino Bijac, a 40-year-old Croatian fan draped in his country’s red checkered jersey in downtown Sao Paulo, said his team could surprise with a draw, maybe even a win.”We’re not looking to ruin the party. We expect to have a party of our own,” he said, as a passenger from a car cruising by defiantly screamed “Brazil” in his direction. “We are ready to surprise.”last_img read more

Coach WV Raman assuring face in the dressing room, says ​Shikha Pandey

first_imgIndian medium pacer Shikha Pandey Monday said minor technical changes made by coach WV Raman has helped her to register career-best figures in the series-clinching win over England in the second ODI of the ICC Women’s Championship in Mumbai.Snubbed from last year’s World T20 squad, Pandey returned to the side with a bang and registered career-best figures of 4 for 18 to help India beat world champions England comprehensively by seven wickets and take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.”There were a few technical issues, which were brought into my notice by Raman Sir. I was very surprised that I did not realise those (issues). He has been that assuring face in the dressing room,” Pandey said.”He is someone who you can speak about bowling and he is always there with an opinion about it. I would say, he caught the flaw during the Challengers (he had come down to see the Challengers). Those minute things actually helped a lot,” she added.Pandey and senior pacer Jhulan Goswami (4/30) wreaked havoc with the new ball to bowl out England women for 161, a target India chased down in the 42nd over by losing just three wickets.”I am always happy if medium pacers take wickets. Today we (me and Goswami) picked up eight. I would commend ourselves for taking eight wickets, especially on Indian wickets which are not very pacer friendly. We are working very hard on it and I am happy that results are coming and I hope it continues,” Pandey said.advertisementPandey was also full of praise for Goswami, saying over the years she had learnt a lot from the senior pacer.”I have learnt a lot from her (Jhulan Goswami), her work ethics, for example. She is 35-36 and for her to continue her international career and bowl so well…as a youngster when I came into the side, I could learn from her. I could learn from the way she fights back in her second spell,” she said.”There are lot of things, the list is really long. For me it has been her work ethics. She is such a team player and is always ready for the team. If I could emulate 10 per cent of that, I would be doing a great job.”Pandey refused to admit that she proved a point to her critics with her performance on Monday, especially after the World T20 snub.”I know from where this is coming. Normally, I do not celebrate my wickets as much. It’s just that getting dropped from the World T20 side was something which was not in my hands, said Pandey, when asked whether the drop from T20 side fuelled her.”I seem to be bowling well in the nets and I am just taking that confidence into matches. I wouldn’t say that getting dropped from the T20 side has sparked something in me, that was never the case.Also Read | Women’s IPL exhibition games likely during playoffs: BCCI officialAlso See:last_img read more
