'Giant Cake'
  Photo was taken last evening at the Parish Centre, Millstreet, Co.Cork (Irl)  
This giant cake taking up a full table, was part of 'The Fairtrade Fest' which took place last evening after the 6.30pm Mass. The giant cake made in the Fair Trade Logo was made from Fairtrade ingredients by the teacher of Home Ecomonics in Millstreet Community School, Ms Kathryn McSweeney and some of the Transition Year students. The cake was divided up into many pieces and sold to parishioners to raise money for charity.
Thought For Today

Thought For Today is by Triona Doherty called 'Coming Down The Mountain'

The people of Sebeya in Ethiopia once lived in a region where mountain tops were green and covered in vegetation. Today, the people of Sebeya are confused as to why their rains have stopped; why a land once full of vegetation is now dry. Having lived a simple life and played no part in causing their weather systems to change, these people are now experiencing the effects of climate change, the causes of which lie with the lifestyles of rich nations thousands of miles away. This is a great injustice.

When we read today's Gospel we can see Peter who is desperate to stay on the mountain in that blissful moment with Jesus. But Jesus' way is different to what Peter may have had in mind at the time. Jesus' way involves coming down from the mountain and walking a very different path. We hear the call to act on climate justice everywhere but now we need to really listen and to take urgent action. This involves making changes to our lifestyles and campaigning governments who are slow to act. We start with ourselves, with small acts in the hope that the Kings and Presidents of the world will follow.

'Creation is not a property, which we can rule over at will; or, even less, is the property of only a few: Creation is a gift, it is a wonderful gift that God has given us, so that we care for it and we use it for the benefit of all.' Pope Francis
