May all glory be to God our loving and caring Father.

Mary 2016

Theme: Mary is our Mother Mentor and admirable

Assumption helps us to celebrate a woman who stands out as a model of discipleship for believers. To appreciate the role and the person of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Bible is sufficient. Luke and Acts in particular present us a woman who is a mother and mentor. Mary is mother not only in the sense that she agreed to give birth to Jesus through the Immaculate Conception; she is also a mother in that she welcomed the living Word of God into her life. Assumption is a nucleus of our faith because it demonstrates that Mary, like Christ her Son, overcame death and is already triumphant in heavenly glory in body and soul. She was so close to Jesus on earth to the extent that she had to be with him in heaven.

Theme: Patience pays

If we were compare the mercy and patience of God to the cruelty of some human persons, what strikes is a tremendous contrast of extremes. There is a tendency among us human beings to distinguish, discriminate and even to ridicule one another. This high measure of weakness and diminishment of personal value has in some occasions unfortunately proved to be a sufficient momentum for provoking some of the darkest periods in the history of humankind. In an effort to separate ‘good’ from ‘bad’ from the insurgents, some communities have wiped out other human groups on pretence of weeding out the unwanted. The only crime of those being persecuted is that they are viewed as different. This is the reason behind the Jewish holocaust and the genocides that we still witness today. Segregation and separation of peoples because of their different ethnic and social groups has been a disease on the frontage of humanity for centuries. This attitude hurts the Gospel and ought to be challenged by Christianity.

Theme:  Powerful word

When a word is spoken it is more than the articulation of an idea; words are dynamic entities pressing onward toward realization in time and space. Once uttered, they can not be revoked; the effectiveness of human words of blessing or cursing can persist and extend beyond the moment of their utterance cf. Genesis 27. More potent than human word is the word of God. In the Bible God’s word is communicated in three ways, as prophecy, as law and as a creative utterance. When God put his word into the mouth of a prophet or commissions someone to speak to the people, that person is assured that his/her ministry will not be in vain. When Samuel was called by God to prophetic service he “grew up and the Lord was with him, not permitting any word of his to be without effect” 1 Samuel 3:19. If we want to progress, the word of God has to find proper space in our lives.

Theme:  Meek Messiah

Today we are going to reflect on salvation Leadership that is not only different but unique. In normal circumstances an eligible leader is one who is decisive, ambitious, wise, strong, forceful, assertive, determined and experienced. Nowhere in a dictionary do we get a description pointing to the attributes of meek to be a quality of a would-be leader. In contemporary parlance the term meek is evocative of weakness; in fact, the dictionary defines meek as ‘easily imposed upon; submissive’. Etymologically, however, this word has a much more potent meaning; meek is an apt term for describing Israel’s long-awaited Messiah. Meek comes from the Greek word, praotes, which means not easily provoked.

communion1Theme: His Body is our life

Today’s celebration of Corpus Christ is the Solemnity of the very center and heart of our Church and pivot of our faith. The Holy Eucharist is the center and heart of parish, the center and every baptized Catholic. Jesus Christ is fully present in the Blessed Sacrament. I know that some find it difficult to believe that bread and wine change into the Body and Blood of Jesus. I can understand your doubts. We don’t see any change in the bread or wine. There is no difference in the taste; the bread still tastes like bread and the wine still tastes like wine. It is going against logic to say that the bread and wine change into the Body and Blood of Jesus despite no change in appearance, yet in this mystery of faith, Jesus Christ is fully and wholly present.

Trinity

Theme: God is three in one

Today is Trinity Sunday but remember that every Sunday is a feast day of the Trinity and an occasion to celebrate one God. Although the mystery of the Trinity is central to Christian faith, it remains one of the most difficult doctrines to explain. What is the meaning of the Trinity? The root of the word ‘Trinity’ originates from the Latin word ‘trini’ which means three each, or threefold. The term was used by Tertullian in year 200 A.D to denote the central doctrine of the Christian religion. God who is one and unique in His infinite substance or nature, or Godhead; is three really distinct Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each of these three Persons is truly the same God and has all His infinite perfections; yet He is really distinct from each of the other Persons.

Theme: Come Holy Spirit

Today, as Church, we celebrate all our birth day in faith. Despite the challenges, failures and tests, the endurance of discipleship has made us witness that Jesus is alive. With this conviction; the Church survives and even thrives! Unlike the survivors of televised notoriety who go it alone, we know that the endurance, perseverance keeps us together as a Church due to the Holy Spirit who does not permit us to be relegated to distant memory or closed away in history’s book. The Holy Spirit instead empowers the Church to be pertinent, relevant and ever attentive to the changing circumstances that call forth its best efforts at service at speaking truth and making known the good news.

Theme: The Cross is our joy

During the liturgical season of Lent now past, the Church called its members to tend to the reality of sin in their lives and to renew themselves in the daily process of conversion to Christ. During the Holy Triduum, we have all been invited to join our struggles and sufferings to the passion and death of Jesus and to find therein the forgiveness and healing he promised. Now that Lent and its emphasis on the Cross has yielded to the blessed new life and hope of Easter, we are challenged to make manifest the fruit of our Lenten efforts. If indeed, we have been converted to the good news, if we have truly ‘turned over a new page’, then it is time to let our life show the difference. The Church puts before us readings from the Holy Bible which help us to understand the implication of Jesus’ resurrection and the challenge of living an Easter faith.
