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
The commitment of Jesus to his mission is shown in his desire to
undergo the baptism that awaits him. Have there been times when there
was something you greatly hoped for, even though you knew there would be
a baptism of fire along the way? What was it like for you to under-go
such a baptism of fire and then arrive at what you desired?
Jesus recognized that the message he pro-claimed would meet with a
mixed reception. This did not hold him back from proclaiming the Reign
of God. When have you seen this kind of courage in yourself, or in
Jesus challenged those listening to him to commit themselves to
discipleship, despite opposition from those close to them, even family
members. When have you found that being true to yourself and to your
beliefs required such courage/ what was it like for you when you were
able to follow that courageous road?
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
We welcome a new writer on to our team this week with Lisa Jackman
offering a reflection on observing the world of nature. In his homily
for the Twentieth Sunday of Ordinary Time, Fr Rob McNamara shares
insights on what it means to be a prophet today. We have a homily for
the Feast of Our Lady’s Assumption on 15th August and dive deeper into
the beautiful writings of St Bernard of Clairvaux whose feast day falls
on 20th August. We have the usual newsletter insert and a video
interview with Viktor Frankl, author of the classic ‘Man’s Search for
Meaning’. Finally, Bishop Robert Barron spells out the three tasks of
the Church – to worship God, evangelise and serve the poor. Check out
these and other resources available at www.thehookoffaith.com
