Bunclody ICA - New members needed
It is 70 years since ICA was started in Bunclody. The guild has
always been very active in the parish for all those years. We want to
keep that tradition alive. But, due in no small way to Covid 19 and the
demographic ageing of our members, we are desperately looking for new
members to join our guild. We meet once a month and have a guest
speaker. Sometimes have various crafts, etc at our meeting. We also meet
once a month for coffee and chat in local restaurant. Sadly, if we do
not get new members, we may have to close the guild. If you have 2 hours
to spare, once a month, and to keep the guild open, which was kept going
by so many wonderful women in the past.
Please phone 087 2805426 or 086 8135587
Meetings held Tuesday & Saturday at 8:30pm in Brennan’s Market Square
Monday night 8:45pm in Day Care Centre.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Growing up, did you hear any ‘old wives’ tales’ about food - eating
carrots helps you see in the dark; bread crusts will make your hair
curly; an apple a day keeps the doctor away..? These wise old sayings,
passed down the generations, were employed to encourage us to eat
certain foods, mainly healthy fruit and veg. Many even had an element of
truth. These days we can easily establish the accuracy of such claims,
but many parents still find themselves falling back on these nuggets of
wisdom. Behind it all is a desire to see children grow up strong and
Recent years have seen an increased focus on health, both physical
and mental. Nourishing one’s body and mind and keeping them healthy are
essential long-term projects, the work of a lifetime. In today’s Go-pel,
Jesus talks about a different type of nourishment - bread that gives
life, food that satisfies, food that endures. ‘I am the bread of life,’
says Jesus. It is Jesus who nourishes us at the very core of our being,
who knows our every need and gives meaning to our lives. He tells us
today: ‘Do not work for food that endures to eternal life. ‘As we
continue on our way, learning how to best nourish our body and mind, let
us not forget to nourish our spirit with Jesus, the bread of life.
‘I invite all Christians, everywhere, to a renewed personal encounter
with Jesus Christ… The Lord does not disappoint those who take a step
towards Jesus, we come to realise that he is already there, waiting for
us with open arms.’ (Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium)
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
The homily for this Seventeenth Sunday of Ordinary Time is on the
Eucharist for the Gospel for the next six Sundays is taken from famous
the sixth chapter of John where Jesus teaches about the ‘Bread of Life’.
The Eucharist is also the theme of the newsletter insert. There is the
seventh of a ten part series on ‘A New Irish Catholicism’ that explores
our need to be newly informed. We feature a video by Bishop Robert
Barron on ‘Breaking out of the Prison of Self- Invention’. Ibar Quirke
explores the life and significance of a saint few of us have heard of
but perhaps need to. Brother Solanus offers a meditation on Mary’s
silence and we also mark the feast of St Ignatius of Loyola. Finally, a
beautiful poem by David Car-roll. Check out these and other resources
available at www.thehookoffaith.com
