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.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Sunday’s Gospel has two images, salt and light that
concern good human behaviour. We will start with the second. “You are
the light of the world.” These words are addressed to the disciples,
those who learn from Jesus. As human persons we can be a light to others
in what we say and do. Our actions and conduct can have an impact on
others. Bad example, especially in the case of someone with standing and
an important place in society can have detrimental effects on many
followers. The person who offers good example may cause other people to
think twice and come to see the value of what they do and come to adapt
that behaviour themselves. Jesus advocates that we do not hide our light
and put it under a tub. Instead,”your light must shine in the sight of
men, so that seeing your good works, they may give the praise to you
Father in heaven.” We live in society and are members of a community. As
Christians all of us can play a part in lifting up the standards of the
whole community. We can both talk the values and live the values in our
daily dealings with each other.
Jesus also reminds his disciples, "You are the salt of
the earth.”. Salt is something we are familiar with. It gives a taste or
flavour to food. It was also used over the years to preserve food. Salt
has a good influence on food and makes it more edible. Each of us, by
our good behaviour can influence others to take on a similar behaviour
and in time add a significant flavour to the community in which we live.
It may generate a great community spirit where everybody plays a part in
contributing to the atmosphere in the community. It is something
wholesome which enhances the community. In its own time that influence
ensures the preservation of a great community where giving and
cooperation are the moods of the day.
The Hook of faith
In the Gospel this Sunday, Jesus reminds us that faith
in him is not just a private but a public matter. He invites us to
engage socially and culturally and to be ‘salt of the earth’ and ‘light
to the world’. Belatedly, we celebrate ‘World Day of Consecrated Life’
and mark the annual ‘World Day of Prayer and Awareness against Human
Trafficking’ on Wednesday 8th Feb. – the feast of St Josephine Bakhita.
We continue to track the fast-changing shifts in our culture when it
comes to respect for life with disturbing news from the Rotonda
Maternity Hospital and the ongoing effects of Euthanasia around the
world. Finally, we feature a new initiative by the Irish Dominicans
called ‘Treasure Ireland’ – a series of videos that explore Ireland’s
Christian heritage. Check out these and other resources available at
