FATHER'S CORNER

Do You Know Your Faith?

WHY IS THE MASS SO IMPORTANT TO YOU?

      After the Sign of the Cross, the priest says the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ… be with you all,” and the congregation says: “And with your spirit.” This means that Christ is present in our midst. Scripture says “for where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them” (Matthew 18:20). 

      Recognizing that Christ is in our presence makes us acknowledge the times we have not lived in his presence. In silent reflection we each consider our relationship with God, and ask for and receive God’s mercy for our sins. Like the prodigal son, we admit the times we failed and then return to the Father who is waiting for us with love and forgiveness. 

       The next thing that follows is the Gloria. This is an    ancient hymn of praise that was first sung by the angels the night Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem (Luke 2:13-14). Before the opening prayer, all of us join the priest in singing the Gloria. In this hymn of praise, our hearts are enlarged with wonders at what God has done. We are joining Jesus to Praise his      Father in his works 

      Next, the priest says, “Let us pray,” and pauses for a moment’s silent prayer before he gathers or collects our prayers to present them to God. 

     I hope this small information makes a difference in your participation at Mass and may God bestow the graces of the resurrection upon you, Amen!

PRAY FOR OUR MARYCARE MISSION
TO NIGERIA


Marycare’s singular mission is to break the vicious cycle of poverty in communities marginalized and isolated because of their ethnic and social economic status. Marycare Medical Clinic is one of the programs we sponsor to carry out our mission. On January 12, 2016 the official opening of Marycare Health Centre took place. The health center is now providing healthcare to some 10,000 residents of the town of Ejemekwuru and its surrounding neighbors. It has 4 rooms, one ward and an open reception area. The people of Ejemekwuru and their surrounding neighbors will forever remain grateful to all our donors who made this possible. May God reward you abundantly.
