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
We celebrate Christmas, this year, on Sunday. It is fitting that we
celebrate this great feast of the year on Sunday. We recall a major
turning point in the history of mankind. God decided to come into
history as a human baby. His mission is suggested in the name of the
child, Jesus which means "God is Saviour". He came as St. Matthew
proposes in his Gospel, "to save his people from their sins". In St
Luke’s Gospel the angel tells the shepherds, "Look I bring you news of
great joy, a joy to be shared by the whole people. Today, in the town of
David, a Saviour has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord." Jesus
came among us as Saviour, as God and Man as expected Messiah and Lord.
Isaiah, the prophet, anticipates a great leader who is a light for
mankind. "The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; on
the inhabitants of a country in shadow dark, light has blazed forth",
This light will be a child who would give wise and enlightened
leadership in the future. Jesus certainly fulfils this prophecy. He
describes himself as the light of the world of humankind. He came to
enlighten us, to en-lighten us about God and about ourselves. He makes
clear to us that God is a loving God, who brought us into existence and
who gave us the possibility of a new life in relationship, in communion
with himself. We adopt this new life and sustain it during our time in
this world, by our faith, by a ready commitment to him in life, which
will, in turn, lead us to eternal life. Jesus also enlightens about
ourselves and his own example and teaching gives us a map of direction
for life that has not been surpassed in the course of history. He
advocates that self-giving love and a generous spirit leads us on the
road to maturity and genuine quality of life.
May all families have a happy Christmas, marking Jesus birth with
faith and love and coming together in a spirit of Goodwill and Joy.
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
This week, we feature Bishop Ger’s Christmas message that he offers
to the whole diocese. We offer a homily for Christmas Day and the usual
newsletter insert that features an extract from the National Synodality
Synthesis Report. On this theme of synodality, a video with Bishop
Robert Barron explains what synodality is and what it is not. Conscious
of those who grieve loved ones at Christmas, we have a reflection named
‘When Grief and Gratitude Embrace’. Bishop Paul Dempsey reflects on how
the crib exposes the relevant issues of today; and finally, we have a
Christmas greeting and message from the Hook of Faith to everyone who
logs on each week as we continue to share the Good News on this digital
platform. Check out these and other resources available at
