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
This Sunday’s Gospel is very much, once again, about persistence in
Prayer. There is a great need to emphasise the importance of prayer and
the need to pray regularly. True enough, we ask God for favours when we
feel the need. But prayer is about more than petition and asking. By
regular prayer we strengthen and cement our relationship and friendship
with God. If friends are out of contact for a long time the friendship
will begin to weak-en and if there is no contact and no regular
conversation the friendship will come to an end.
It is good to see prayer as conversation with God. We talk to him
about how we are and how life is treating us. There may be opportunity
to praise God for the blessings that he has brought your way. It may be
good health, a good family partner, husband or wife, beautiful children,
a successful holiday, or satisfaction with the job. These are all good
reasons for praising God and ex-pressing your satisfaction to God for
the favours that are part of your experience. This form of conversation
gives you connection with God and inevitably strengthens your
relationship. Talk to him about your joys and sorrows and assure him of
your intention to be faithful and loyal in your encounters with him.
Come back to him over and over again, every day, if possible, to keep
alive and inti-mate your ongoing relationship with God.
Another approach would be to take a passage of Scripture or of the
Gospels and talk to God about it. For instance you might consider this
passage from Matthew. "Shoulder my yoke and learn from me, for I am
gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls." Am I
gentle and humble of heart? Are these my basic attitudes? I know, Lord,
that if these qualities are not in my mind, outlook and heart they will
not be found in my action towards others. So, I ask you, Lord, help me
not to place too much emphasis on myself and help me to have a profound
respect for other people and to put them before myself and treat them
with gentleness and loving care. This is just a sample or example. You
can make any bible passage the beginning of your prayerful conversation
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
‘Ministering Together in a New Time’ was the theme of a recent clergy
gathering of the priests of our diocese. This week we feature some of
the topics discussed and the vision statement by Bishop Ger given at the
end of the conference. We have the homily for the Twenty-Ninth Sunday of
Ordinary Time as Jesus asks the haunt-ing question: ‘When the Son of Man
returns, will he find any faith on earth?’ A video from ‘Word on Fire’
explains how we can make a holy hour before the Blessed Sacrament and an
article remembers Pope St John Paul II and his witness to hope in the
face of great uncertain-ties. We offer some catechesis on the prayer of
the Rosary and finally, some more light and life from the pen Lorcan
Brennan. Check out these and other resources available at
