    symbols will be attached to the boat s net This Installation will be in place for the Diocesan Congress and will remain in the Cathedral throughout the Lenten and Easter Seasons See below for more details including the invitiation to contribute Prayer Petitions on fish shaped cards which will be gathered together with parish petitions and placed in the boat in Carlow Cathedral during the Congress Jesus and Fish Our boat also has a net and this reminds us of all the times that Jesus talked about fish went fishing with his friends and even told them where to find the best catch Remember that his first four disciples were fishermen You can read about this in Mark 1 16 20 St Luke tells the same story but in his version Jesus gets into Simon s boat and taught the people on the lake shore He then told Simon to put his nets back into the water and they caught so many fish that they needed help to bring them to shore You can read about this in Luke 5 1 11 There are other stories about Jesus and fish The feeding of the five thousand Luke9 10 17 Matthew 15 32 39 Mark 8 1 10 John 6 1 15 Jesus appears to his disciples John 21 1 14 Fish symbol in the lives of Early Christians The fish is an ancient and very important Christian symbol We have already seen how fish are mentioned in many of the Gospel stories Fish is not only part of Gospel stories but we are told that it was also used as a symbol by early Christians to let others know that they were followers of Jesus During the first three hundred years of Christianity there was persecution of those who wanted to follow Christ In many places it was dangerous to be known as a Christian It is said that when two people met and one wanted to see if the other was a Christian they would draw the beginning of a fish symbol on the ground If the other person completed the drawing each would know that they were followers of Jesus This was a simple and safe way of identifying other Christians It was also easy to erase if the other showed no sign of recognition ICHTHUS In later years Christians began using the Greek word ICHTHUS or ICHTHYS The use of the fish symbol by Christians may or may not be true But it is certain that sometime around the 16th century Christians began using the Greek word ichthys for fish Ichthys is made up of five letters from the Greek alphabet I ch th y s We can use these five letters to make an Acrostic in Greek Iesous Christos Theou Yios Soter This translates into English as Jesus Christ God s Son Saviour IXQUS ICHTHYS Jesus Christ God s Son Saviour I Iota the first letter in the Greek Word Iesous Jesus X Chi the first

  • Song for Don Bosco - 'Here is a Man' - iCatholic.ie
    that situation came John Bosco Part of John s work as a priest was to visit the prisons around Turin Here he experienced first hand the misery of many defenceless and vulnerable teenagers Their plight made a deep impression on him Intuitively he knew something had to be done about the situation But what and how A dream recalled John s visits to the prison revived memories of a dream he had at the age of nine He tells us In my dream I was playing with my friends near home when an angry quarrel broke out I rushed in with my fists flying All of a sudden a strange man appeared and rebuked me No no not that way Be kind and gentle As he pointed to a majestic lady he told me his mother would always be my friend and guide The prison visits challeged John and a new understanding of his faith and mission began to grow He felt strongly called to work for these abandoned young people But what was he to do He adopted a novel approach He mixed with the roughest of young people He played cards with them in pubs and invited them to be his friends This scandalised many of his fellow priests Some of them actually thought his behaviour so insane that on one occasion they tried to commit him to an asylum Overcoming problems and prejudices took time Living the dream However his unique ability to be at ease with the young who were homeless illiterate and in need spurred him on He progressed from Sunday catechism classes in a local field to a daily trade school in an adapted shed Young people flocked to him for education and shelter He fought for the rights of and proper working conditions for apprentices His fame and his work spread People began to see John Bosco not as someone deranged but as an extraordinarily holy man He was making the seemingly impossible possible As his work grew many young men came forward to help him They became the first members of his religious congregation known as Salesians Currently numbering nearly 16 000 These young men became the core group who would further his work Many lay people including his mother Mama Margaret came to help in his work John had wanted everybody who helped him whether lay people or religious to be part of his congregation but Church regulations regarding the setting up of new religious congregations partly thwarted his dream John with the help of Mary Mazzarello later founded the Salesian Sisters to work for girls Currently there are over 400 000 lay people working as part of the wider Salesian family Why the name Salesians John Bosco had a great admiration for St Francis de Sales 1567 1622 Francis who was born near Geneva 21 August 1567 was patron saint of Piedmont and Savoy and much loved by John Bosco He admired his joyful optimistic spirituality and simplicity of life
