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
In this Sunday’s Gospel Jesus tells the parable of an untrustworthy
steward. He had responsibility for his master’s property. But he was
accused of being dishonest and wasteful of his master’s property. The
boss brought him in and demanded that he give an account of his
stewardship of the property. His master made it clear that he had lost
his job. So the man thought to himself, "What will I do so that there
will be people to welcome me into their homes when I am dismissed." So
he called in the chief debtors and reduced the extent of their debt.
They did not have to pay what was required. The master praised his
dishonest steward for his astuteness or cleverness. The Gospel suggests
that the children of light or the Christian community should be as
clever and wise in living a good life in this world.
Jesus suggests that his followers should be clever in their use of
money and use it to make friends who "will welcome you into the tents of
eternity". Jesus refers to money, "tainted as it is". This is a poor
translation. The original text suggests that money is at the root of
injustice, which is so often true. The big danger is that money comes to
be venerated as an idol and dominates the mental powers and the energy
of people in this world. "You cannot be the slave both of God and of
money." If money wins out God is generally removed from the scene. Put
God first and we will always win out.
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
Siobhan O’Donoghue is a religion teacher from Wexford
who is currently working with Veritas on Religious Education programmes
for Secondary School pupils. We interview Siobhan as she shares the joys
and challenges of teaching religion today with young people. We have a
homily for the Twenty-Fifth Sunday of Ordinary Time where the prophet
Amos is angry and for good reason. We have news of a Parish Mission
coming up in the parish of Wexford and a focus on the Pope’s intention
for September which argues for the abolition of the death penalty.
Finally, we have a CMT programme that highlights the great work of the
late Fr Leo Staples. Check out these and other resources available at
