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.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
The parable brings out two contrasting experiences, but each in its
own way can be a moment of grace, a moment of truth, a moment of growth.
You may be able to recall such experiences in your life. In the first
(verses 8,9) we discover that we had claimed a place that is too hgh for
us; we are not as selfless, generous or com-passionate as we thought we
were. In the second (v.10) when others point out a goodness in
our-selves that we may not have acknowledged to ourselves. How have you
grown through such experiences?
In verses 12–14 Jesus warns us against the danger of ulterior motives
in doing good. We can do good things partly because of the benefit we
will get from what we do. That is natural but can lead to disappointment
and resentment when our expectations are not met. When the good deed in
itself is our reward, we have a greater freedom. Feedback will be a
bonus but not necessary. What does your life experience tell you about
THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
On Tuesday this week, the ‘Synthesis of the Consultation in Ireland
for the Diocesan Stage of the Universal Synod 2021-2023’ was published.
We feature the full document together with the statement from the
bishops that invites a prayerful reading of the text by us all. We have
the usual newsletter insert and a homily for the Twenty-First Sunday of
Ordinary Time. We have news of an upcoming seminar on zoom in support of
Catholic parents in their sacred task of being the first teachers of the
children of faith and morals. As patron season is in full swing in our
diocese, Sean Byrne reflects on the power of remembering. Finally, for
the feast of St Monica we explore how she is an example for all parents
in the art of persevering prayer. Check out these and other resources
available at www.thehookoffaith.com
