'Saul Sunday' celebrated with open air Mass
THE annual 'Saul Sunday' Mass was celebrated on Slieve Patrick last Sunday by Bishop Anthony Farquhar.
Focusing on St Patrick, particulary his mission and courage, Bishop Farquhar noted how "against the backdrop of the Trinity, one could certainly sense how God chooses some of the weakest to strengthen community".
"St Patrick had the courage to face up to difficult situations and stand firmly by the word of God," he said.
"Physical courage in the face of captivity and danger, and in returning to meet of call of the Irish; and the moral courage to stand up to those who might ridicule his message and how he stood up for it."
