FATHER'S CORNER

WEEKLY REFLECTION & PRAYER

'Lord when your glory appears, my joy will be full' This full throated expression of hope in a future glory from today's Psalm, is indeed the message of the first reading. The seven Hebrew brothers faced persecution and imminent death. They watched each other die in the most gruesome way and yet their faith in the God of their ancestors and in the resurrection was unfazed. For heaven's sake they were ready to lay down their lives in hope that resurrection to eternal awaits them. The topic of the resurrection was also at the heart of the conversation between Jesus and the Sadducees in today's gospel. A little bit of background information would be helpful in understanding this dialogue. The Sadducees were chosen mostly from the wealthy class of the Jews. Most of them lived in comfort and were quite satisfied with the existing social arrangement. They were quite upset with Jesus whose message, they thought, was a disruption of the lopsided social order that favored the wealthy. Life for them was so comfortable that they really thought that belief in anything beyond the present life including: angels, spirits and the afterlife was simply ridiculous. Jesus' message of everlasting life felt like such a disappointment; so their goal was to expose the flaws in His teachings. The good news is that eternal truth belongs to God not man. Whether we choose to believe in that truth or not is entirely up to us. If we do believe in it we have life and if we do not, it is at our own peril. The legendary faith of these seven brothers’ help to demonstrate even to the blind where true joy lies. It is found in a life with God. Dear God, grant us the wisdom to forsake all for the sake of the all surpassing inheritance with you in heaven, 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.
