    Father Brian D'Arcy gave us reason to Pause for Thought

  • Pause For Thought

    From Father Brian D'Arcy, a Catholic Passionist Priest:

    "You said earlier Chris that it was a good weekend which helped to lift our spirits. I agree. I was delighted that Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma’s Nobel laureate was freed after 15 years of House’s arrest. It proves your should never give up hope.

    I was asked recently to give a short talk to ten young people who were finding it difficult to motivate themselves after they lost their jobs. It was an impossible challenge really, but I decided to present them with seven short, sharp, easily remembered, bullet points which I called the 7Ups.

    Brighten Up. Don’t deny what has happened to you but remember the positive points too. You’re young; you’re gifted; you’re bright – so brighten up.

    Dress up. The best way to improve your looks is to put a smile on your face. It costs nothing. Be alive; groom yourself; present your best side. What you wear on the outside helps you on the inside.

    Stand up. You have opinions; you’re articulate; you have convictions. So stand up for them and don’t be a shrinking violet.

    Reach Up. Don’t settle for the lowest options. Set your sights high and adjust them if you have to. That way you’ll have a chance of fulfilling your potential. If you aim low you’ll reach the bottom – and run the risk of staying there.

    Listen up. Maybe you should learn to shut up and pay attention to the real world. Be alert to what’s on offer rather than blindly insisting on what you want.

    Lift up. Lift up your spirits. Lift up your hearts. Lift up those around you. Lift up your gaze. Remember what Job said in the Bible: “The Lord gives. The Lord takes away. Blessed be the Lord.”

    Look Up. Keep your head up. Look forward to a better life and a better future. And by the way, Look up to the Lord; He’ll give you hope, courage and eventually a job you’ll love.

    Be like Aung San Suu Kyi. She never gave up. She kept her hopes up; and now she’s lifted us all up."
