Christ has no body now on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours.

Yours are the eyes through which Christ’s compassion is to look out to the world.

Yours are the feet by which he is to go about doing good.

And yours are the hands by which he is to bless us now.                St Teresa of Avila

O’GROWNEY NS PARENTS ASSOCIATION AGM in the school on Monday next at 7.30pm.

Commenting on Wednesday’s Oireachtas Committee vote, Dr. Ruth Cullen of Pro Life said, “The committee have issued the verdict before the evidence was even heard. From the very start, this process has been a complete travesty. The committee has lined up more than 25 abortion advocates to present but have only invited 3 pro-life speakers. This signifies the committee’s total contempt for democracy and the protection of human life. Clearly the committee thinks the vote was another smart political stroke – voting before even hearing the evidence of the witnesses they have invited to present at taxpayer’ expense”
