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
‘Let us go across to the other side’ is an important phrase in Mark’s
Gospel which occurs many times. Jesus and the disciples are crossing the
Sea of Galilee from what is a predominantly Jewish area to a more
Gentile (non-Jewish) region. While this phrase signifies Jesus’
geographical position, it also suggests that he is inviting the
disciples to go a little deeper on their journey. They are per-haps
entering into the unknown, moving out of their comfort zones and
therefore feeling anxious. The crossing of the water does not go so well
for the disciples as a storm begins to brew and eventually the water
begins to en-danger the boat. To the disciples astonishment, Jesus is
asleep through the whole or-deal. Their anxious call is understandable,
‘Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?’ After all, Jesus has
led them, and ‘other boats’ into this situation and now appears not to
care what will happen to them all.
In times of turmoil in life, we too may feel totally abandoned,
swamped by fear and anxiety, adrift in a storm where even Jesus appears
to be asleep. During such experiences, we might remember the worlds of
Jesus from today’s Gospel and repeat them, like a mantra. ‘Peace! Be
still’. While the wind is howling around us it can be frightening but
Christ is always with us, present within our very selves, offering us
this deep peace. Of-ten, coming back into this awareness can help us
navigate through the storm and remind us that Jesus is very active in
our lives, especially when we are entering into unknown territory. What
is required of the disciples in this account, is a more mature faith, a
deeper trust in their Teacher, that he will not abandon them.
‘May the peace of Christ go with you wherever he may send you; May he
guide you through the wilderness, protect you through the storm; May he
bring you home rejoicing at the wonders he has shown you; May he bring
you home rejoicing.’ (Shane Claiborne).
Reflection for weekend 19th & 20th June 2021
What is Prayer?
Prayer doesn’t just happen when we kneel or put hands together and
focus and expect things from God. Thinking positive and wishing good for
others. That is prayer
When you hug a friend - That is a prayer
When you cook something to nourish a family & poor people ..That’s a
When we send off our near and dear ones and say ‘Drive safely’ or ‘Be
Safe’ that’s a prayer
When you are helping someone in need by giving of your time and energy
---you are praying.
Prayer is a vibration – A feeling – A thought.
Prayer is the voice of love, friendship and genuine relationship
