Congratulations, Canon Kearney

At our First Friday Mass on June 1st we marked the occasion with Canon Kearney for his Golden Jubilee of being ordained a priest.

Just like each of us,

Canon Kearney is made in the image and likeness of God.

He rises each day

Not for himself

But always for others.

 

God handpicked him from a myriad of souls

Moulded him since he was a child

And prepared him for a journey

Not for himself

But always for others.

 

God blessed him with wisdom and understanding

To give form to his plans

And to carry them out

Not for himself

But always for others.

 

Mary walks with him

Guiding and loving him

For to her, he is like Jesus

Living a life not for himself

But always for others.

 

He holds the Body of Christ

Embraces Jesus’ name and proclaims it

He is shepherd and counsellor, friend and confessor

Not for himself

But always for others.

 

May God forever bless him

May he walk with him and carry him when his feet are weary

May he bring peace and joy to his heart

For through him we grow closer to God.

 

Amen.
