The Irish Blessing

<div> Please make sure to click <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TascsWZPj8U" target="_blank" rel="noopener">here</a> or the title above to watch the video.</div>
<div> </div>
<div><span class="style-scope yt-formatted-string" dir="auto">The Irish Blessing (Beannacht uile-Éireann) is a project inspired by the many international recordings of "The Blessing” (by Cody Carnes, Kari Jobe and Elevation Worship) which have been made during this time of pandemic. We wanted to honour that inspiration, whilst at the same time, honouring the unique history and culture of our island. So we chose a song that would resonate across the island, with every denomination and cultural grouping, one that could be used as a platform to sing a Blessing over our land, all our key-workers and those they are caring for. “Be Thou My Vision” is just such a hymn written over 1000 years ago. It reminds us of the One to whom we should look in this time of pandemic, whose presence is our light, the source of our wisdom, in whom we find our treasure and where we find victory. </span></div>
<div> </div>
<div><span class="style-scope yt-formatted-string" dir="auto">Individuals from 300 Christian churches and organisations located in every county on the island submitted self-recordings of vocals and instruments which have been compiled by our creative team to produce this music video - we hope you receive a blessing as you watch it. </span></div>

WHEN WORDS FALL SHORT

WHEN WORDS FALL SHORT
A PASTORAL LETTER ON RACISM
Bishop George Leo Thomas, Ph.D.
Diocese of Las Vegas
June 10, 2020

The tragic and inhumane death of Mr. George Floyd has enraged the nation and galvanized
people across the globe to cry out together for justice in his name.
In fewer than nine minutes, we witnessed breathtaking footage of an unarmed black man
receiving capital punishment for a petty crime, pleading for his life while crying out those
infamous words that haunt the soul of this nation. “I can’t breathe.”
That breathtaking scene has torn the curtain back on a grave and silent sin that continues to
disease and demean the spirit of our nation, and that is the pernicious sin of racism.
Now, the individual and collective voices of people everywhere crying out “Black Lives Matter,”
“No Justice, No Peace!,” “Justice for George!,” will not be silenced until there is real, deliberate,
and systemic change in American society and in nations across the world.
This time, words, chants, prayers, and placards, however necessary and sincere, will not be
enough to satisfy the hue and cry of the people.
We want real evidence of real change.
