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 a wonderful parable which creates
a wonderful contrast between those who are proud and have a very
dominant ego and those who are humble and have a good sense of how they
are in reality before God. The first character was a Pharisee. The
Pharisees were known as the "Separated Ones" who stood up to the
attempts of the Greeks to introduce Greek culture into the Jewish world.
The Pharisees would have none of it. They insisted on people adhering to
the old law and created numerous mini regulations to ensure that nobody
would break the ten commandments. Their whole life was centred around
the law. They took great pride in obeying every detail of the law
including all of their mini regulations. The man in today’s Gospel had
an especially strong ego. He believed that he was better than the rest
of mankind. He wasn’t grasping, unjust or adulterous like the rest. He
fasted twice in the week and payed his taxes or tithes to the temple. He
was far superior to the tax collector who also came to the temple to
The tax collector provides a great contrast. His head was faced
towards the ground. He humbly beat his breast and said, "God, be
merciful to me a sinner." There were no dramatics, no drawing attention.
He just acknowledged who he was before God. We are told that he went
home at rights with God. He pleased God. The Pharisee did not. Jesus
draws a wonderful conclusion from the story. "For everyone who exalts
himself will be humbled, but the man who humbles himself will be
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
‘You shall be my witnesses’ is the theme of this ‘Mission Sunday’
when the whole Church unites to serve the poor in developing countries
and bring them Good News. We have Pope Francis’ message for this
important day, a newsletter insert and a homily. ‘The Letter: A Message
for our Earth’ is a new feature film on ‘Laudato Si’ and the effects of
climate change. It is now available to view through a YouTube link. We
have an article on the cohesiveness of the Catholic faith and another on
the spirituality of synodality. Finally, more light and inspiration from
the pen of Lorcan Brennan. Check out these and other resources available
