Theme:  Watching and overcoming temptation

For the better part of my life, I have thought of Lent as a season of introspection, a time of taking personal inventory, a period of soul-searching and self-examination. These six weeks, set aside each year by the Church, have afforded me an annual opportunity for a sort of spiritual spring cleaning. I have looked at Lent as an invitation to recognize my failures and sinfulness, to seek forgiveness and to form a new resolve in order to grow deeper in faith, more fervent in love and firm in hope. Admittedly, this personal experience of Lent is necessary and important, however, if I look only within myself, my focus becomes too narrow, my horizons too limited, my ideals too personal. But there is another aspect of this season which merits consideration. Through the readings, signs and bywords which characterize the Lenten respite, the Church challenges each one of us to turn his/her gaze away from self in order to look at God.

A few days ago, a good size Cross has been unveiled at Mbuya in the compound of Our Lady of Africa Parish Church which is one of the places frequented by a good number of Catholics in and around Kampala. This Cross which stands at 35 feet above the ground and 15 feet under the soil; with a well sculptured image of the Crucified Jesus that weighs approximately two tones, has been built to commemorate two important events in the life of Mbuya Parish in particular and Uganda in general.

The first baptism in Mbuya took place on 11th July 1964 which should be counting fifty year by now. The second reason is to honor our Holy Martyrs of Uganda who were canonized on 18th October 1964. The Golden Jubilee of these two invents was the drive behind this common but meaningful visible sign in a form of the Cross. 

Pope Francis on Wednesday said that in a Christian community division is one of the worst sins because it comes not from God. He made the comment during weekly General Audience on Wednesday in St Peter’s Square.

The importance of unity was at the heart of Pope Francis’ catechesis at his weekly General Audience on Wednesday, telling the estimated ten thousand pilgrims and tourists present in St Peter’s Square that “ while we, the members of the Church, are sinners, the unity and holiness of the Church arise from God and call us daily to conversion.
