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
The Diocese of Ferns - looking forward
Earlier this week I gathered with our clergy to take time away to
hold discussions on how we will minister as priests together in a
changing world. The theme of the gathering was "Ministering in a New
Time". Over the course of a couple of days we participated in workshops
and held many discussions, all of which focused on how life in the
church is changing. This led to looking ahead to what church life and
ministry might be like in the future.
At our gathering I shared the following vision with the clergy which
I now share with you all: "That the people of The Diocese of Ferns have
access to the transformational power of the Gospel, the hope that it
brings and the seal on that by the sacramental life of the church."
This gathering was the first step in a process that will be further
developed over the coming months and years and will draw on the
resources and gifts of many people throughout our diocese. As was
remarked by one of our facilitators "this process is about widening the
circle to involve as many people as possible and benefit from the
richness of their talents and abilities."
I thank all who participated in this initial process and I look
forward to continuing this journey with you all throughout the diocese.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Sunday’s gospel is about lepers and leprosy. Leprosy was a horrible
contagious disease which caused serious sores on the skin. People did
their utmost to avoid it. Those who were lepers lived apart from their
families and sometimes in leper colonies. The isolation caused serious
suffering because it was impossible to have any human contact. It wasn’t
unlike Covid and the necessity to stay apart from family and close
contacts for a limited time. Isolation and loneliness were the horrible
effects of leprosy.
In the Gospel Jesus cured ten lepers and told them to go and show
themselves to the priests of the time so that they could confirm that
they were cured and could return to family and society. Only one of the
lepers returned to give thanks to Jesus for his cure. "Finding himself
cured, one of them turned back praising God at the top of his voice and
threw himself at Jesus feet and thanked him."
Praise and thanksgiving are two important qualities in human life. In
the Bible people praised God for his general blessings, for his creation
of the world and for his saving action in relation to his people in the
course of their history. In a similar way we can praise God that he has
created us and placed the world at our disposal. We can also praise God
for the remarkable beings that we are, who have intelligence and
physical capabilities to govern our lives. We thank God for the
particular graces and favours he has laid in our path. Some of those
graces may be a friend, relation or other person who was and inspiration
and led us to a change of lifestyle.
It is also most important that we thank each other for the favours
and even little acts of assistance that we show towards each other. We
acknowledge the good that others do for us and make sure that we let
them know. It is also great when we praise one another and help to
increase the level of confidence in each other. Praise is one good key
to creating good esteem in the person we praise. Praise of children,
when genuine, con-tributes so much to their personalities and self-worth
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
Pope Francis’ prayer intention for the month of October is for ‘A
Church Open to Everyone’. In a personal video he explains his dream for
a Church like this. The homily for the Twenty-Eighth Sunday of Ordinary
Time focuses on the healing power of gratitude. We give thanks for
healing but giving thanks leads to healing too. We give reasons why the
government should pay more attention to family stability and listen to
Bishop Robert Barron’s article on four ways to make the Church grow.
Finally, we celebrate the prophetic leadership of St John XXIII whose
feast day falls this week and the beautiful in-sights of St Teresa of
Avila whose feast day falls on Saturday 15th October. Check out these
and other re-sources available at www.thehookoffaith.com
