The Meaning of Christmas

Wishing every home in the parish a glorious Christmas.  Thinking of all of our relatives and friends who are unable to be with us this year.  You are truly with us in spirit.

Here is the translation of a wonderful traditional carol from the Aran Islands, Cuireadh do Mhuire by Máirtín Ó Direáin – A simple yet powerful message.

An Invitation To Mary

Do you know, O Mary

Where you will go this year

To look for shelter for your Holy Infant

At a time when every door is shut in your face

By the hate and the pride of human kind?

Be pleased to accept

An invitation from us

To an island in the sea

Far away in the west

There will be bright candles

Lighting in every window

And a turf fire.

Season’s Greetings, Brosna.
