Month of August

We welcome the month of August, the month of wheat, the beginning of Autumn. We thank God for the beautiful weather we have had for some time. May everybody be safe on the roads and while swimming. In August, we celebrate the harvest. Lugh was one of the most important gods in pre-Christian Celtic Culture. Dancing and bonfires were engaged in to celebrate the Feast of Lugh. Some of these customs were still alive until the twentieth century. According to folklore Lugh was a warrior, a hero, a poet, a harpist, a diplomat, a statesman and a craftsman. August (Lughnasa) the first month of Autumn is named after him. In pre-Christian times it was thought that all the crops came from the sun and without it there would be no food and they would die. St. Patrick came and taught that God created the heat of the sun and the rain to help the growth of plants. We thank God for everything that grows. The Pope’s intention for August is: Let us pray for the Church, that she may receive from the Holy Spirit the grace and strength to reform herself in the light of the Gospel. In the Bible we read that there is: A time to be born, a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted…. (Ecclesiastes 3: 2—3).

Lord be with us during the month of August.
