FATHER'S CORNER

WEEKLY REFLECTION & PRAYER

The people of Israel offended God by worshiping idol and God threatens to punish them. All the years of favor went unappreciated by a people whom God had made His own by a special covenant. Yet, rather than lend himself as an instrument of punishment, Moses became an instrument of mercy praying God to relent His anger. ‘For He is gracious and merciful slow to anger abounding in love’. Psalm 145:8. In the Second reading, Saint Paul acknowledges his sinfulness but much more so he acknowledges the abundant grace of God who pardons all our sins. The story of the prodigal son in today’s gospel belongs among those parables that reveal the heart of God So full of mercy, love and compassion for His own. Sin brings us to a life of shame separating us from God. It grieves the heart of the father who loves so much. One of the highlights this story however is that this lost son realizes his sinful life and makes a conscious effort to return to his father. The fathers loving response demonstrates that God is never far away from the reach of anyone in need and in search of His mercy. Loving God, we have all strayed away from your ever provident love and have become submerged in sinfulness and iniquity. Grant us the courage to arise and return to you our true home and lasting inheritance, 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.
