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
This Sunday’s Gospel tells of the extraordinary cures of two women.
One was the daughter of Jairus, who was very seriously ill and on the
point of death. When Jesus arrived at the house the people who had
gathered believed she was dead. On his way to the house of Jairus a
large crowd followed him. A woman in the crowd who had suffered from a
blood disorder for twelve years and had spent all her money on doctors
but had got no better. She came to know something about Jesus and
touched his cloak. She said to herself, "If I touch even his clothes, I
shall be well again." Her cure was immediate. Jesus knew that power had
gone out from him and tried to discover who touched his cloak. The woman
came forward, trembling and fearful, fell at his feet and told him the
whole truth. Jesus gave her wonderful assurance. "My daughter", he said,
"Your faith has restored you to health; go in peace and be free from
In the meantime, some people arrived from the house of Jairus to say
that his daughter had died. Jesus encouraged him to have faith. When he
arrived Jesus found great com-motion with weeping and wailing. He
assured them that the girl was asleep and not dead. They laughed at him.
He said to her, "Little girl, I tell you to get up." She got up at once
and began to walk about. The great faith and trust of Jairus was duly
Both stories give us a good understand-ing of what Jesus was about.
If people were lacking, in any way in life, he brought them back to
normal life so that they could continue to live as a normal healthy
human person and be in control of their own selves as they wished. Jesus
mission was to give life and add to life as we understand it.
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
‘I Am With You Always’ is the title of the message from Pope Francis
for the first ‘World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly’ which falls
on 25th July this year, the feast of Saints Joachim and Anne, the
grand-parents of Jesus. We feature the message in full and explore its
significance. The homily for the Thirteenth Sunday of Ordinary time is
offered by Fr Brian Broaders who reflects on people’s encounter with the
person of Christ who changed lives. Our video this week is a lengthy but
inspiring interview with Mattie Harte, son of Micky Harte. He talks
about the loss of his sister Michaela, faith and forgiveness. Finally,
there is a wealth of wisdom on offer from the many saints we celebrate
this week including St. Irenaeus, Peter, Paul and Oliver Plunkett. Check
out these and other resources available at www.thehookoffaith.com
