A Blessed Call to Love is a window to humanity

The team here is dedicated to bringing the love of God to as many people as possible through these Irish blessings.  We want hearts to be touched and transformed from where they are at from budding into bloom.  We seek to help people to understand a blessed love that saves and heals.  Our team pray for the health and well being of those to whom these Irish Blessings go out to.  We want to be active in shaping and expressing what it means to be a Christian in the 21st century.  That is why ongoing intercession for a world in need lies at the heart of our vision.  Our goal is a compassionate outreach informed by scripture and Christian tradition.

We want these Irish blessings to go out into the world to provide comfort, healing and solace to those in need.

THE MEDAL OF LIFE

Jack Finnegan SDB

Fr Jack Finnegan is a Salesian of Don Bosco and a well know teacher of spirituality

The inspiration for the Medal of Life first arose in a housewife’s time of prayer and intercession. In prayerful reflection it seemed as if God the Father, with Mary the Mother of his Son Jesus Christ, wanted people to affirm life in all its phases, the very human life shared by Jesus who came to save and heal us all. The outline of the medal evolved from that first moment of inspiration through a process of ongoing reflection and discussion until the final design emerged and the medals were cast. It is now being issued cum permissu superiorum from the Salesian Provincial in Ireland. Copies of the medal and accompanying leaflet and prayer may be obtained from…..

Irish Blessing oils

The tradition of anointing with sacred oil is very old indeed. It is used in sacraments and also as a devotional practice. The sick person is invited to apply oil on the part of their body they want healed but as they do so, they are asked to pray to whomever the oil is dedicated to. The oil itself does not have miraculous power. It is God who has the power to heal. Prayer and a gesture of faith, like applying the oil, are important ways for us to express our faith in God’s power.

Luke 10; 33-34. The Good Samaritan
“But a Samaritan traveller who came upon him was moved with compassion at the sight. He approached the victim, poured oil and wine over his wounds and bandaged them”.
