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
In Sunday’s Gospel Jesus returns to his home town of Nazareth. In our
terms it was a village. It was never mentioned in the Old Testament.
Jesus came back and people were astonished. They were amazed by his
wisdom and power. Wasn’t he the Son of Joseph and we know his brothers
who were probably sons of Joseph from a previous marriage. But the
locals did not want to accept him. That led to Jesus’ proverb "A prophet
is only despised in his own country, among his own relations, and in his
It is clear from the Scriptures that Jesus was a prophet. Prophets
were not people who forecast the future, but their role was to speak the
word of God and bring God’s mind to bear on the present realities of
society and on the trends that would lead to growth or disaster for the
people. They were conscious and aware of the thinking and behaviour of
the people and, frequently, judged if it conformed to what God wanted or
not. Jesus is also our prophet and has left us a body of information and
knowledge that can guide us to a good life where God is at the centre.
He is the key both to our perfection, our happiness and our salvation.
The people of his time were astonished by his wisdom. His wisdom is our
gift. Wisdom, in the Bible is always practical wisdom, suggesting what
we can do to become good people.
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
‘I Am With You Always’ is the title of the message from Pope Francis
for the first ‘World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly’ which falls
on 25th July this year, the feast of Saints Joachim and Anne, the
grand-parents of Jesus. We feature the message in full and explore its
significance. The homily for the Thirteenth Sunday of Ordinary time is
offered by Fr Brian Broaders who reflects on people’s encounter with the
person of Christ who changed lives. Our video this week is a lengthy but
inspiring interview with Mattie Harte, son of Micky Harte. He talks
about the loss of his sister Michaela, faith and forgiveness. Finally,
there is a wealth of wisdom on offer from the many saints we celebrate
this week including St. Irenaeus, Peter, Paul and Oliver Plunkett. Check
out these and other resources available at www.thehookoffaith.com
..for weekend 3rd & 4th July 2021
World Day for Grandparents & the Elderly coming soon on Sun 25th July
Pope Francis speaks to grandparents and the elderly
The prophet Joel once promised: "Your old men shall dream dreams, and
your young men will have visions" (3:1). The future of the world depends
on this covenant between young and old. Who, if not the young, can take
the dreams of the elderly and make them come true? Our dreams of
justice, of peace, of solidarity can make it possible for our young
people to have new visions; in this way, together, we can build the
future. You need to show that it is possible to emerge renewed from an
experience of hardship. I am sure that you have had more than one such
experience: in your life you have faced any number of troubles and yet
were able to pull through. Use those experiences to learn how to pull
through now. Dreams are thus intertwined with memory. I think of the
painful memory of war, and its importance for helping the young to learn
the value of peace. Those among you who experienced the suffering of war
must pass on this message. Keeping memory alive is a true mission for
every elderly person: keeping memory alive and sharing it with others.
And the foundation of life is memory. Finally, as my predecessor, Pope
Benedict, him-self once said: "the prayer of the elderly can protect the
world, helping it perhaps more effectively than the frenetic activity of
many others."  Your prayer is a very precious resource: a deep breath
that the Church and the world urgently need (cf. Evangelii Gaudium,
262). Especially in these difficult times for our human family, as we
continue to sail in the same boat across the stormy sea of the pandemic,
your intercession for the world and for the Church has great value: it
inspires in everyone the serene trust that we will soon come to shore.
