Bishop urges prayer after Diego Maradona's death


Argentina football legend Diego Maradona dies aged 60 | Wetherby News



A priest dies and, resplendent in his clerical collar and colourful robes, waits in line at the Pearly Gates. Just ahead of him is a man with scruffy hair and dirty jeans. Saint Peter addresses this man, "Who are you, so that I may know whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven?" The man replies, "I am Hughie Cleanitup, caretaker driver from Ballydoolittle, Ireland." Saint Peter consults his list, smiles and says to the caretaker driver, "Take this silken robe and golden staff and enter into the Kingdom." So the caretaker driver enters Heaven with his robe and staff, and the priest is next in line. Without being asked, he proclaims, "I am the Reverend WV Golf, PP of Saint  Ballydoolittle Ireland for the last hundred years, or so it seemed like that." Saint Peter consults his list and says, "Take this cotton robe and wooden staff and enter the Kingdom of Heaven."

"Just a minute," says the priest, "that man was a caretaker driver and you issued him a silken robe and golden staff, but I get wood and cotton. How can this be?

"Up here, we go by results," says Saint Peter. "When you were preaching, people fell asleep, but when he was driving, people prayed !"

Saint Blaise. Believed to have saved Dubrovnik.

You may recall this photo of big bale silage making in Mayogall with the new Chapel and Spire in background. Young farmers, Ben, Eamon and Edward who made these bales, recently showed me coloured stones found after the bales were fed to their cattle. These pebbles have probably come from the graves in the nearby churchyards. Owners have recently had to take measures to prevent birds from taking them for whatever reason and then dropping them in the local fields.

Parishoners have noticed some curious marks and a plate along the bottom edges of our Chapel since the intensive renovation cleaning  of the stonework.

Apparently these are called benchmarks and are to do with Ordnance Survey but are no longer in use. I will leave the reader to do the usual google searches for more info.

The first is at the entrance gate to the Chapel at the corner where apparently a stairway led to an underground store ( So I am told)


The second is a metal plate bearing the letters OS and BM with the number 3578. It is at the East side main altar corner near the distinctive Fr O'Kane grave at the roadside.

The parish does not have any info or history about when these were placed on the chapel.
