Paul Clark presents a round up from Greencastle, Co. Donegal, of various messages and stories past contributors of Witnesses have given.

First up is Pat Heaney, who suffered from two heart attacks and was to undergo an operation, however before the surgery, he went to his church and asked if the priest would pray with him, the priest then dedicated the entire mass to Pat. Soon after, it was time for the operation but as it was about to happen, the surgeon said there wasn't anything he needed to do and the problem had gone away. 

Roy Arbuckle is next, and he discusses the cultural influences that shape you that you aren't even aware of, in his case he never thought to ask for help as it wasn't something the men in his family did for fear of looking weak.

Other contributors include Philidia Templeton who speaks about the need for letting out emotions, even anger, and Lila Yates who has sought the Church due to a personal tragedy.
