MY PRAYER FOR YOU THIS WEEK
The idea of coming to light from darkness dominates today’s message. To the Ephesians’ community Paul writes: 'You were once in darkness but now you are in the light of the Lord'(Eph.5:8-14). In one of the most dramatic episodes in the New Testament, Jesus restores sight to a man born blind to the anger of the Pharisees (Jn. 9:1-41).It was so disappointing to them that Jesus had continued to grow popular and so was his message, plus an increasing level excitement and willingness on the part of the people to be associated with him. When every strategy to discredit him had failed them calumny and slander seemed, though unfortunately, to be their only option. But the truth could not be silenced. The blind man continued from that moment to be a sign post pointing the way to Jesus while at the same time ready himself to jump on Jesus' bandwagon. This episode marks yet another victory of truth over lies and of light over darkness. To understand what it means for light to dominate darkness Saint Paul gives us a very strong clue: It means to choose gentleness over meanness, to choose truth over lies, to be appreciative rather than ungrateful, to embrace generosity rather than selfishness, to seek forgiveness rather than resentment, to seek love and not hate; it means, in short, to produce every kind of goodness, righteousness and truth and to take NO part in all fruitless works of iniquity (Eph 5:8-14).The main aim of our Lenten journey is to accomplish nothing less; and for this we pray: Dear Lord, as we journey with you on your way to the cross, help us to dissociate ourselves from all works of darkness so as to experience the joy of your light and your grace, Amen.

PRAY FOR OUR MARYCARE MISSION
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.
