Bishop Encourages 100% Co-operation In Adhering To Restrictions

Posted by


BISHOP of Kerry Ray Browne has asked parishioners to give 100% co-operation in adhering to the Level 5 restrictions.

In his pastoral message, he asks people to support and encourage each other through the next six weeks.

“I encourage each and every one of you, to hold your heads high, and in a spirit of unity and concern for one another give 100% cooperation regarding the requirements of Level 5 and the basic Public Health Guidelines: social distancing; face covering; washing/sanitising our hands,” said Bishop Ray.

“This is key to getting the virus under control once more. As a united, loving, caring people let us give full cooperation to NPHET and our Government. Level 5 severely restricts our movements and most of our plans are cancelled. Being asked to stay in our own homes as much as possible is very difficult for some.”

“People also have great concerns about their employment or business. Together we face these six weeks, supporting and encouraging one another.”

“The 1st of December is when Level 5 restrictions are due to end, in time to allow us celebrate Christmas. The true meaning of Christmas is a real and constant source of hope all year round. We draw on that especially now as we face the next six weeks.

Back in Springtime there were so many wonderful examples in the community of care for each other. Reach out in support to those in your community who need it. Love one another. Think of others.”

The coronavirus is forcing us to live quieter, simpler lives. United together, supporting one another, we have sufficient to live good and happy lives. Positive talk lifts our spirits.
Unite with all in the diocese in prayer, praising God and asking for all the graces we need.

“Thank God our churches are open for personal prayer. Please continue to sanitise your hands as you enter and exit the church. Join in offering the Mass in whatever way you can, whether by radio, television or online. Pray each day, alone and together and pray as a family. Pray with your children and talk to them of God’s love and care for us all.”

    The Bishop of Kerry Ray Browne would want to look inwards towards the many problems of the Church as an organisation!

    No other organisation has done more to erode the word of the Lord Jesus Christ.
