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.

At a first reading the demand of Jesus sounds selfish. “Anyone who prefers father or mother to me is not worthy of me.” It only makes sense when we realise that Jesus will never be outdone in generosity.

Jesus never wanted suffering for anyone but he knew that if we are going to follow in his footsteps, promoting love and respect for every person, we will meet with opposition. Fidelity has its price, but also rewards. Would you agree?

The passage is a call to both radical and practical discipleship. When have you found that in order to achieve a certain objective you had to make it a priority, and then take the practical steps necessary to reach your goal? What were the benefits to you when you did this?

“Hate” is prophetic exaggeration for the uncompromising loyalty Jesus seeks in disciples. There may be times when people make demands in conflict with fidelity to another relationship. This can be painful. When have you found that being clear about your priorities helped you in that situation?


Bishop Ger has appointed Dr Sean O’Leary as Director of Pastoral Development for the diocese of Ferns. In an article, he offers a reflection on the scope of pastoral development for the times we live in and looks forward to the challenges ahead. In the Gospel for the Fourteen Sunday of Ordinary Time, Jesus invites us to come to him, especially those who are struggling and who are tired. We have the second part of a reflection on faith and science where examples are offered of natural processes that mirror deeper spiritual realities. We have a reflection by Pope Francis on the life of Blaise Paschal on the four centenary of his birth and finally an article on St Benedict for his feast day and how he challenges any attempts to marry seamlessly the spirit of the age and the radical Gospel message.
