FATHER'S CORNER

WEEKLY REFLECTION & PRAYER

 

In the first reading of this Sunday, we see the generosity of Abraham and Sarah towards the messengers of God. Through this act of kindness, God who can never be outdone in generosity, rewards them with their heart’s desire, the promise of a child. Martha and Mary were also generous to Jesus although each in their own way. Abraham and Sarah provided just what the three strangers needed in the same way that Mary gave Jesus the attention he deserved and longed for. Martha, on the contrary and, out of the kindness of her heart, gave what she thought that Jesus needed. In any case, there was an abundance of benevolence and the desire to serve the need of the person on either side. The Psalm of today speaks of those who do justice. They will live in the presence of the Lord. In most cases, Biblical justice goes beyond merely the civil idea of giving to each person his or her due. It means in addition, to walk blamelessly in the ways of the Lord, to live uprightly, to avoid slandering one’s neighbors, to speak the truth at all times. It means to avoid hurting other people needlessly and to be generous, merciful and compassionate. Such is a just man or woman and whoever lives in such a manner will live in the presence of the Lord. This Psalm continues the discourse from last Sunday about what we must do to inherit eternal life, responding: Live justly and act uprightly. Such were the lives of Abraham and Sarah, Martha and Mary. That is the life we all called to live as Christians. Loving God, make us holy as you are holy, just as you are just and loving as you are love itself, 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.
