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.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
This weekend we celebrate the Solemn Feast of the Assumption of our
Lady into heaven. We do not have direct evidence, but it is a tradition
going back to the early days of the church. It was, no doubt,
appropriate that Mary should share in the destiny and glory of her Son.
St. Paul reminds us, "Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first
fruits of all who have fallen asleep." (I Cor. 15:20). Jesus was the
first to rise from the dead and gives the assurance that all who are
linked to him in faith and love would share in his resurrection. We can
be very confident that Mary, the Mother of Jesus and Son of God, would
share in that assurance. Her faith and lifelong relationship with her
Son down to his death on Calvary entitled her to share his glory.
The Gospel of today’s mass gives us a good insight into Mary’s
character and per-son. She showed herself to be a woman of compassion
and care. The Angel Gabriel re-minded her that her elderly cousin had
conceived a son and at that time was in her sixth month. Mary
immediately set out on a two or three day journey to a little town near
Jerusalem to help and support Elizabeth in the latter days of her
pregnancy. When she arrived Elizabeth gave her a prophetic welcome. She
assured her that she was blessed among women. She praised her for her
extraordinary faith. "Yes, blessed is she who believed that the promise
made her by the Lord would be fulfilled". The Gospel concludes with
Mary’s Magnificent. She praises God for the great dignity he bestowed on
her. The burden of her message is that God thinks differently to us. Her
thinking resembles that of Isaiah, "For my thoughts are not your
thoughts and your ways are not my ways." (Is.55:8) God chooses the lowly
and insignificant of this world to fulfil his purposes. It is not the
proud and the powerful that God chooses, but "he has looked on his lowly
Reflection for weekend 14th Aug & 15th Aug
‘There is only one path to heaven. On earth, we call it love’ (author
This Sunday is the feast of the Assumption of Mary into heaven. It is
always a turning point in late summer, not just for those getting the
Leaving Cert results but also a reminder that the school holidays will
soon be winding down as we head for September. At the heart of this
feast day is a sense of hope. Mary was taken up into heaven to show the
other side of death. Death is always so final, but as believers we
believe in eternal life. It’s the hinge on which we rest everything. The
Assumption of Mary is a reminder that we are merely pilgrims as we
journey through this world. What happened to Mary is God’s plan for all
of us too. Sometimes we need a boost and a reminder that there is a
meaningful purpose to life. Today is certainly one of those days. As we
journey we need to give 100% to what needs getting done. This means when
we do something, no matter how small, it’s best to give it our all. In
our Gospels, Jesus constantly encouraged people to do their best, to
keep focussed and especially on the really important things in life . As
Samuel Johnson said ‘Knock the ‘t’ off the ‘can’t’ When we find
ourselves saying ‘I can’t’, we pray for the encouragement to say ‘I
