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
Meetings held Tuesday & Saturday at 8:30pm in Brennan’s Market Square
Monday night 8:45pm in Day Care Centre.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
John objected w hen a person, who was not in their group, cast out
demons in Jesus’ name. Jesus himself had no problems with this. Jealousy
can poison our outlook even when what is done by another is good. ‘S/he
is invading my patch’. Perhaps you have seen, in yourself or in others,
the negative effect of jealousy and the contrasting positive effect of
being able to rejoice that good is being done, irrespective of the
person doing it.
In Strong terms Jesus condemns those who are destructive of the life
of others, particularly the ‘little ones’. Just as Jesus came that we
might have life and have it to the full, we likewise are here to make a
positive difference to others. What was it like for you when you were
able to do something that was helpful to another?
Rather dramatically Jesus tells us to cut off a hand, or tear out an
eye, rather than harm another. It is not to be taken literally but it
does mean that we should not be casual about our efforts to live a good
life. When have you experienced the benefits of an element of
seriousness in your approach to life?

THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
St Therese of Lisieux is one of the patron saints of the ‘Hook of
Faith’. This week we explore why she is patron saint of the missions as
we celebrate her feast day on 1st October. To mark the ‘Season of
Creation’, Archbishop Dermot Farrell has published the document ‘The Cry
of the Earth, the Cry of the Poor’. We feature extracts from this
important document. The homily for the Twenty-Sixth Sunday of Ordinary
Time reminds us that we are anointed as prophets who are called not just
to do good but to multiply the good. Bishop Robert Barron directs us to
how to live a meaningful life and finally, the newsletter insert reminds
us of an important part of the Church’s social teaching, namely the
equal distribution of goods which is at the heart of the second reading
