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 the Gospel today we read that Jesus has returned home and causes
quite a com-motion on his arrival. Word about this healer and teacher
has gotten around, the crowds have gathered, and the religious leaders
are not happy. Jesus’ growing popularity has started to up-set daily
life for his family to the point where ‘they could not eat’. In an
effort to protect their son and their brother, Jesus’ family try to
explain away his ‘unruly’ behaviour. They tell the crowd and the
religious leaders that Jesus does not mean what he says, he has simply
‘gone out of his mind’. In their view, things have gone too far. Jesus
was preaching a message that seemed radical to many. He knows that
bringing about God’s dream for the world involves speaking out and
behaving in ways that are counter cultural. The religious leaders go as
far as to say that Jesus was possessed by a demon. It was their way of
‘explaining away’ someone that they could not cope with, someone who was
challenging their systems and practices. We can think of those in
society today who are ‘explained away’; those whom society wishes would
stop speaking out because it is uncomfortable to listen to. Name calling
is often a last resort when Institutions or ‘powers’ are disgruntled.
The young climate activist, Greta Thunberg, knows this well. Following
taunts by Presidents and Fossil Fuel executives towards her, she
famously said, ‘When haters go after your looks and differences, it
means they have nowhere left to go… and then you know you’re winning.’
The end of today’s Gospel is troubling as Jesus seems to dismiss his
mother, his brothers and sisters. But Jesus’ mission is now wider than
his immediate family. It is not that he no longer cares for them, God’s
vision and Jesus’ vision for this world are now one. As sometimes
happens in life, we have to let go of certain things in order to follow
our true path.
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
The feast of St Colmcille falls on 9th June and this year marks the
15th centenary of his birth. Ibar Quirke explores the life and witness
of one of Ireland’s patron saints. Fr Brian Broaders offers the homily
for the feast of Corpus Christi and we also have an article that
appreciates the Mass as God’s way of loving us. On Friday 11th is the
feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and ‘World Day of Prayer for the
Sanctification of Priests’. As many priests celebrate their
anniversaries in these days, we offer words of encouragement. There is
the usual newsletter insert and poetry by Philip Quirke. Check out these
and other resources available at www.thehookoffaith.com
