Letter from Pope Francis for the Month of May


Pope Francis has asked that, during the month of May, the Rosary should be recited in the Church right across the world in the context of the coronavirus and its effects. Pope Francis also composed two special prayers for the occasion, and the second of these prayers is below:

"We fly to your protection, O Holy Mother of God".


In the present tragic situation, when the whole world is prey to suffering and anxiety, we fly to you, Mother of God and our Mother, and seek refuge under your protection.

Virgin Mary, turn your merciful eyes towards us amid this coronavirus pandemic. Comfort those who are distraught and mourn their loved ones who have died, and at times are buried in a way that grieves them deeply. Be close to those who are concerned for their loved ones who are sick and who, in order to prevent the spread of the disease, cannot be close to them. Fill with hope those who are troubled by the uncertainty of the future and the consequences for the economy and employment.

Mother of God and our Mother, pray for us to God, the Father of mercies, that this great suffering may end and that hope and peace may dawn anew. Plead with your divine Son, as you did at Cana, so that the families of the sick and the victims be comforted, and their hearts be opened to confidence and trust.

Protect those doctors, nurses, health workers and volunteers who are on the frontline of this emergency, and are risking their lives to save others. Support their heroic effort and grant them strength, generosity and continued health.

Be close to those who assist the sick night and day, and to priests who, in their pastoral concern and fidelity to the Gospel, are trying to help and support everyone.

Blessed Virgin, illumine the minds of men and women engaged in scientific research, that they may find effective solutions to overcome this virus.

Support national leaders, that with wisdom, solicitude and generosity they may come to the aid of those lacking the basic necessities of life and may devise social and economic solutions inspired by farsightedness and solidarity.

Mary Most Holy, stir our consciences, so that the enormous funds invested in developing and stockpiling arms will instead be spent on promoting effective research on how to prevent similar tragedies from occurring in the future.

Beloved Mother, help us realise that we are all members of one great family and to recognise the bond that unites us, so that, in a spirit of fraternity and solidarity, we can help to alleviate countless situations of poverty and need. Make us strong in faith, persevering in service, constant in prayer.

Mary, Consolation of the afflicted, embrace all your children in distress and pray that God will stretch out his all-powerful hand and free us from this terrible pandemic, so that life can serenely resume its normal course.

To you, who shine on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope, do we entrust ourselves, O Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary. Amen.

Parish Mission Statement


"I call you friends, because I have made known to you everything I have learned from my Father.
You did not choose me, no, I chose you; and I commissioned you to go out and to bear my fruit, fruit that will last; and then the Father will give you anything you ask him in my name.
My command to you is to love one another."

Gospel of St. John the Evangelist Ch 15 Vs 15-17

Inspired by these words in the Gospel of St. John the Evangelist, patron saint of our parish in Ballinteer, we strive to follow Jesus by:

Bullet point  Building a community which gives expression to our faith in Jesus where each person feels welcomed, accepted and valued in their own right.

Bullet point  Promoting a greater sense of togetherness and participation as we gather in our church.

Bullet point   Spreading this togetherness in church out into our parish community in a way that is inclusive and all-embracing.
