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
When we talk about the Eucharist we talk about Sacrament. In
Sacrament we use words and actions to bring about an extraordinary
happening. It is good to recall the prayer before the consecration in
the third Eucharistic Prayer. "Therefore, O Lord, we humbly implore you:
by the same Spirit, graciously make holy these gifts we have brought to
you for consecration, that they may become the Body and Blood of your
Son our Lord Jesus Christ." In virtue of the words of consecration this
is exactly what happens for those present at the celebration. It goes
even beyond that. "This is the chalice of my blood.. Which will be
poured out for you and for many". These are the critical words that
reveal a tremendous truth. They put us in touch with the death of
Christ, with the death of the Son of God who gave up his life out of his
utter goodness to manifest his love for us. Every time we attend mass
and we pay attention to these words His great act of love for us takes
place in our church. Calvary takes place for us in our church. For that
reason the Eucharist de-scribed as a Memorial. What took place in the
past takes place for us now.
There is another gift in the Eucharist that we cannot forget. It is
the gift of the Lord himself in Holy Communion. He comes to nourish us,
but not in the way that natural food does. He nourishes us by his
contact with us which renews our relationship and friend-ship with him.
It is a time of prayer, of conversation and a great sense of union.
I believe that, as Christians, we need to go beyond coming to mass
and receiving Jesus in the Eucharist. If Eucharist is to make an impact
on our lives and community, we need to live it day by day. To do so we
return to the words of consecration. "This is my body which will be
given up for you" and "this is the chalice of my blood which will be
poured out for you". Jesus gave of his humanity, of himself and of his
life substance for our benefit.
Reflection for weekend 28th Aug & 29th Aug
Love is one thing that unites all of human existence. It has the
ability to inspire, to encourage, and to lighten your heart.
If we could only realise the world of a difference our love can make
in someone’s life. I don’t think we fully appreciate our goodness, how
much our kindness matters and how our love transforms others. We do it
and we simply move on. If we could just know the amount of hidden
energies we release in others when we do our bit and our best, we’d be
amazed. The hectic pace of life quickly moves us on. But God has
actively been involved in that moment and in the next moment we do it
again. It would be a great shame to underestimate the great good you are
doing. People change when they are given hope, above all they change
when they are loved. They come out of their shells and hidden energies
are released in them. (Flor McCarthy) The message is simple
today....love one another (Reflection by Fr James McSweeney)

THE HOOK OF FAITH THIS WEEK
As he comes to the end of his time as bishop of Ferns, we talk to
Bishop Denis Brennan as he looks back on his fifteen years of service –
the highs, the lows and his hopes for the future. The newsletter insert
includes an extract from St John Paul II’s ‘Pastores Gregis’ on the
ministry of a bishop. The homily for the Twenty-Second Sunday of
Ordinary Time is offered by Fr Lar O’Connor who comments on Jesus’
attention to our motives rather than external actions. We have an
article that marks the beginning of the ‘Season of Creation’ from 1st
September to 4th October. Finally, we include a conversation between
David Quinn from the Iona Institute and David Nugent of Atheist Ireland
on how faith or lack of faith has implications for social stability,
values and ethics. Check out these and other resources available at
