Theme: Allowing God to take over

Several months ago, the television and print media carried the story in a certain country of a person who died in tragic circumstances. Armed attackers surprised the family that was on their way home. Although most of the family members were able to escape, some of the bullets had hit the young boy, while he slept in the back seat. A short time later, the child was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. People were shocked and outraged as the sad news was reported. But public outrage was soon replaced by wonder and admiration. The boy’s family arranged that all of their son’s vital organs be harvested and donated. As a result, the lives of eight people, each of whom received one or more of the child’ healthy organs, were forever changed. For some it meant being able to see again; for others death was postponed because a young vital organ had replaced an aged defective one. Because organ donation is such a rarity in the world of today, the gift of life was all the more remarkable. As I heard the story of the young boy and learned of the aftermath of his death, I was reminded of another time and place and the death of another son, whose dying brought life to so many. It is the life-giving death of this other son, namely, Jesus, which is the focus of our scripture readings for today.

The Church choir and liturgical music

A Church Choir is a group of singers that praise the Lord in the Liturgical celebrations through sacred Music. Because of the Liturgical Ministry it performs, the choir also known as capella musica, schola cantorum deserves particular attention. Its role has become something of yet greater importance and weight by reason of the norms of the councils concerning the Liturgical renewal. Its duty is to ensure the proper performance of the parts which belong to it according to the different kinds of music sung and to encourage the active participation of the faithful while assembled for praise and worship.

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.

Homily for Ash Wednesday 2015

Theme: Be purified and be reconciled with God

My brothers and sisters in Christ, today we are entering a new season, one of penance and mortification. Together, we have gathered here to celebrate Ash Wednesday, the first of forty days of the Lenten Season that precedes Easter. On this special occasion, we are called to be reconciled to God. Through the sacramental of ashes that is symbolic of penance, we are reminded that we as sinners are but dust and ashes cf. Genesis 18:27

Today, in preparation for the joy of Easter that approaches, we need to call upon the mercy of the Lord Jesus, asking Him for His blessings and forgiveness for the Heavenly Father does not want us to die but to live with the risen Christ who reigns forever and ever. As such, through the grace of God and the power of the Holy Spirit, we ought to prepare ourselves to celebrate the death and glorious Resurrection of Christ our Saviour by being cleansed from our sins through a renewal of spirit.

Theme: Nothing can quarantine us from the love of God

Through the centuries, humanity has been beset by a myriad of illnesses some of which have altered the course of history. For example, in 1348 the Black Death or Bubonic plague first reached Europe from the East. By 1350, more than half the population of the continent had died. In about 20 years, the plague reduced the population of the civilized world by 75 percent! In 1918 influenza claimed more than 20,000,000 people worldwide; with more than 548,000 succumbing in Africa alone.

In the 1940s, polio swept the world, leaving thousands crippled and maimed in its wake. Nearer to our times, cancers of all kind continue to afflict and kill thousands, Malaria still kill people today in millions while Tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and EBOLA have yet to be completely understood and are far from being controlled. When these and so many other common ailments strike, one of the first reactions is to quarantine the sick so as to protect the healthy. Separated from rest of society, those held in quarantine suffer doubly, first from their illness and then from the isolation. In the ancient world, victims of leprosy knew all too well this double dose of suffering.
