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 

In today’s gospel Jesus is enticed to gratify his own needs, or to perform some spectacular act in public. He rejects the temptation because he chooses commitment to his mission and to dependence on his Father over any immediate gratification. We can all be tempted to go for some immediate satisfaction,… but is that where happiness lies? Have you found that sometimes there is more contentment in saying ‘no’ for the sake of some long-term goal? What are the goals, aims, values that inspire you in this way?

One way of looking at this gospel is to say that Jesus went into the desert to face his demons. We all have demons we need to face– compulsions, fears, prejudices, anger, and urges that lurk within. It is in facing our demons that we find a way to live a fuller life. Can you recall a time when you grew through facing a ‘demon’ in this way?

In one of her reflections Joyce Rupp describes Lent as a ‘time to rediscover lost treasures’. Is there something that once was a healthy part of your life and is no longer there: e.g., reading, exercise, mindfulness, prayer, socialising , fun? Would this Lent be a time to rediscover that lost treasure.


The Hook of faith

Bishop Ger has just issued a pastoral letter for the season of Lent in which he invites the faithful to come back to the sacraments and to make a new beginning together on the journey of faith. The newsletter insert highlights Trocaire’s campaign to alleviate the suffering people of Somalia. The homily for the First Sunday of Lent reflects on the temptations of Jesus in which we see the ways we are tempted too. We explore Hungary’s pro-family policies and how they are both reducing abortion rates and offering hope for the future. Bishop Robert Barron reflects on inclusivity and love and a new video from ‘Word on Fire’ ex-plains the harmony between faith and science. Check out these and other resources available at www.thehookoffaith.com
