FATHER'S CORNER

DO YOU KNOW YOUR FAITH?

 

DO YOU KNOW THE ORIGIN OF THE KISS OF PEACE AT MASS AND WHERE THE TRADITION CAME FROM?

      Before the Kiss of Peace, we have “The Lord’s Prayer” which is used most appropriately to begin the Communion Rite. It reminds us that God is our Father, and we are God’s children who depend on him for everything. 

     As far back as 150 A.D. Saint Justin, our Patron Saint, wrote about “a holy kiss” given “after finishing the prayers of the faithful.” Reaching out to one another is not easy: we are forced to admit our interdependence. Jesus’s first words after resurrection were, “Peace be with you.” We exchange the same words at the sign of peace as our final preparation for Communion.

     The sign of peace we do at Mass came from Jesus instructions in the Sermon on the Mount: “So, when you are offering your gift at the altar, if you remember that your brother, or sister has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go: first be reconciled to your brother or sister, and then come and offer your gift” (Matthew 5:23-24).
     Therefore, the time for the sign of peace is not a time to be standoffish; it is not a time to isolate   oneself. Instead, it is a time to put aside artificial boundaries, and paralyzing fears, so that we can share a unity with one another and with God.

     May this prayerful gesture break every form of division, prejudice, and discrimination in our parish. May the kiss of peace that we share make us truly One Family in Christ, 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.
