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
Like many a parable, this story makes its point in a way that seems
to be unfair: the spend-thrift son is rewarded and the eldest son is
left hurt and angry. People often empathise with him. Neither son
understand the nature of love. The younger son did not recognise what a
treasure he had at home and walked out on it. Then he ‘came to himself’
and returned home. Where and when have you experienced a homecoming by
becoming aware of love you had previously not recognised? What helped
you to come to yourself and make that journey home?
The older son resented the party given to the younger son after his
wandering and dissolute life– forgetting that all the father had was
his. He is a symbol of us when we set ourselves up to decide when and
how others should show their love, affection and gratitude. Such
expectations fail to respect the freedom of others and make us
vulnerable to the pain of unmet expectations. These can be fertile
ground for hurt and resentment. What helps you to respect the freedom of
others, and recognise their love even if it is not expressed just as you
Love is a free gift, not something we earn by our goodness. Recall
the wonder of experiencing love when you did not expect it. You may even
have thought you were not worthy of it. When has the experience of human
love, freely given, prompted you to reflect on God’s love for you?
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
The Gospel for this Fourth Sunday of Lent or ‘Laetare Sunday’ is
perhaps the greatest of Jesus’ parables – the Prodigal Son. It is a
story that can never be emptied of its riches. The homily and newsletter
insert unpack the meaning of this treasure that never ceases to
challenge and inspire. Sunday is also Mother’s Day and we feature two
inspiring poems. We have a reflection on the Pope’s act of consecration
of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and our video this
week is an inter-view with Prof. Eamon Conway on the synodal pathway.
