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

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
In Sunday’s Gospel Jesus introduces us to a new personality, namely
,the Paraclete. "I shall ask the Father, and he will give you another
Advocate to be with you forever." The Paraclete is an advocate. He is
like a barrister in the court of law. He assists the person in court to
state and argue his case. That is one of the roles of the Holy Spirit in
Christian life. In our Gospel he is the Spirit of Truth. Jesus brought
us the truth. It was the truth about God and the truth about ourselves.
The Spirit of Truth or the Paraclete helps and supports us to understand
the revelation and the truth that Jesus proclaimed and lived for us.
With his guidance and light the Holy Spirit enables us to penetrate,
comprehend and understand the truth of Jesus. He helps us to make that
truth our own and to live it in practice as best we can. The Holy Spirit
keeps us in tune with Jesus himself as we build an ongoing friendship
with him. He prompts us to live the life of love which is central to
In St Luke’s Gospel and Acts of the Apostles the Spirit has a very
different role. He enables Jesus and the apostles to proclaim the word
of God. When the Spirit came on the apostles at Pentecost they abandoned
their fear and powerfully preached the word of God. Later in the Acts of
the Apostles the disciples had another Pentecost moment. "As they
prayed, the house where they were assembled rocked. From this time they
were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to proclaim the word of
God fearlessly." (Acts 4:31).
We have different views of the Holy Spirit. They are not unrelated.
We cannot proclaim the word of God with conviction unless the Spirit has
guided us to assimilate the word of God and make it our own.
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
‘Well-Being’ is a word that we hear more today and a concept that
shapes education programmes in our schools and other institutions. But
what does it mean? The newsletter insert offers a Catholic definition of
the term. We have the webinar from Mgr. Stephen Rosset-ti’s input on
priesthood based on his new book ‘Priesthood in a Time of Crisis’. We
offer a homily for the Sixth Sunday of Easter that contemplates Jesus’
fare-well words at the Last Supper. We continue a video series that
helps young believers discern what true love looks like. Bishop Robert
Barron outlines five animating principles of the new evangelisation and
finally, a few words of appreciation and a prayer as ‘The Hook of Faith’
celebrates its fifth birthday on 18th May. Check out these and other
resources available at www.thehookoffaith.com
