Local Notes


St. Mary's Church, Clonmany.

Fr. Peter Devlin, C.C., Tel. 76114.

Jesus said to them: "Come and have breakfast!" The Risen Jesus appeared to the apostles many times before He returned to the Father in Heaven. The third time He met with them after His resurrection was on the shore of the sea of Gallilee. He spoke to them and He shared a meal of bread and fish with them. In this way they could see that He was alive again! We thank you Lord for revealing yourself to the apostles and disciples. We thank you God the Holy Spirit for inspiring them to write down their experiences of those moments which are for us the sources of our belief. Lord, increase our belief and continue to inspire many more to become apostles for your kingdom.
