Home Care Cancer

The Annual General Meeting of Bunclody Home Care Cancer will take place in Redmond's Lounge Bunclody on Tues-day 26th February 2018. New Members welcome.


Lord teach me to be generous,
To serve you as you deserve,
To give and not count the cost,
To fight and not heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labour and not to seek reward,
Save that of knowing that I do you holy will.

The "Prayer of Generosity," which many of us learned as children, is associated with St Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Jesuit Order, yet it is unclear whether eh actually composed it. One of the earliest references to it comes from 1910, when it began to be used as a prayer for the French scouting movement. To this day it is often known as "The Scout Prayer" and is used by many Scout groups as a blueprint for the work they do.

The prayer perfectly sums up the generous spirit of the many volunteer organisations and chari-ties whose members give their time and energy so freely and generously to help others. There are thou-sands of volunteers all over our country who put love into action by visiting those who are lonely, listening to those who are struggling, providing food and other supplies for all sorts of worthy causes. Week in and week out, they give without ever counting the cost.

These volunteers are living the message of to-day’s Gospel, which can be summed up in one short sentence: Go the extra mile. Thank you, Lord, for vol-unteers. Make us ever more generous with our time, energy and reources. Help us to be compassionate, as you are compassionate.

-Tríona Doherty.
