and DRC need help now! We appeal to you, to do what you can to save
lives and support Trócaire’s emergency Response. The collection takes
place in Kilmyshall Church this weekend 6th & 7th November and Bunclody

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

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
It is clear from the gospels that Jesus did not like
hypocrites, people who pre-tend to be what they are not. They long for
attention and love to be saluted by all and sundry. They wear lavish
clothes and seek the places of honour and prominence at religious venues
and other celebrations. They are known both for their lengthy prayers
and blatant injustice.
There is a great contrast towards the end of Sunday’s Gospel. Jesus
took time out to watch people make contribution to the temple treasury.
Many people gave generously from their superflua, that was over and
above what they needed. But he noticed a poor widow who put in all she
possessed, all she had to live on. Jesus highlights her remarkable
generosity. It was what he called for himself and how he lived himself.
St Paul was truly aware of his generosity. "You are well aware of the
generosity which Our Lord Jesus Christ had, that, although he was rich,
he became poor for your sake, so that you would become rich through his
poverty." (2 Cor. 8:9) Jesus became poor by giving himself on our
behalf. His life and action were the essence of love. He wants us to
imitate that spirit and it can take in the whole of life in our
relationships with God and with each other. We can be generous in giving
to those in need. We can be generous in giving good time to those who
are significant in our lives. We can be generous in patience when we are
aggravated or unjustly dismissed. We can be generous in looking out for
opportunities to offer help when our com-fort may have been our desire.
We can be generous in praising and in giving confidence and self-belief
to those who are negative and defeatist. By giving of ourselves we
become poorer, but in doing so we make others richer and more full of
