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
Seeing your Life through the Lens of the Gospel
‘Who do you say that I am?’ Imagine Jesus putting this question to
you. How would you answer it? How would you answer it, not in words
taken from a catechism or textbook, but from your own experience on the
significance of Jesus in your life? What does Jesus mean to you? What
does his gospel message mean to you?
Jesus went on to teach his disciples that following him would be hard
at times. There would be a price to pay. Perhaps you also have found
that imitating the love and compassion of Jesus is not an easy road? Nor
does it come easy to have the constant trust in God that Jesus had. Yet
Jesus tells us that this is the way to life. Would you agree?
There is a natural human tendency to shy away from what is painful or
difficult. Yet if that is our standard pattern of behaviour, we will not
get far in reaching our potential. We will never find who we are capable
of being. When have you found it worthwhile to face difficulties,
persevere, ’carry your cross’ for a while to achieve some goal that was
important to you?
John Byrne OSA
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
On the first week of Bishop Ger Nash’s ministry as bishop of Ferns,
we have the full video of his ordination ceremony including the homily
at the Mass. The Gospel for this Twenty-Fourth Sunday of Ordinary Time
is where Jesus asks us to take responsibility of who we think he is. We
have the usual newsletter insert and words from Archbishop Dermot
Farrell on the occasion of the Centenary of the foundation of the Legion
of Mary. We look closer on the findings of a recent report on the
welfare of Irish prisoners abroad and discover how young people are now
being bullied at school because of their faith. Finally, we feature an
article for the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross on 14th September.
Check out these and other resources available at www.thehookoffaith.com
