Tithes For God's Work And Not For Personal Enrichment

Aug 27, 2018
Tithes For God's Work And Not For Personal Enrichment. My dear People of God, Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ, the Teacher and Giver of our faith! These days many people are saying different things about tithes, that is, giving one tenth of one's income to God as commanded by God.  Many, especially non-Catholic Christians, insist on tithes and threaten people ...

Christians, Always Work For Peace Based On Justice

Aug 24, 2017
My dear People of God, Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ who taught us, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God” (Matthew 5:9)! These words of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, moves us to reflect more seriously on peacemaking at the time when many people are engaged in matters and methods that can evoke war and violence in our country.  Indeed, Boko Haram is there in Northern Nigeria, killing human beings and destro ...

HOLINESS OF LIFE FOR ALL CHRISTIANS

Jul 06, 2017
My dear People of God, Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ, the Holy One, the Word who became flesh and made his dwelling among us! We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth (see John 1:14)! Jesus Christ has invited us to be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect (see Matthew 5:48). That means that we should be holy. Our God is holy. Our relationship with God requires that we also be holy: "The Lord said to Mo ...

WORK FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS NOT JUST FOR POPULARITY

Jun 24, 2017
My dear People of God, Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, the High Priest who is holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners, and made higher than the heavens (see Hebrews 7:26). We Christians are called to imitate Christ. That is why I am asking myself and you all who are my fellow Christians to work for righteousness and not just for popularity. In fact Jesus Christ himself told us not to occupy ourselves with seeking for food and clothing but to seek the ...

CHRISTIANS-. SPIRIT VERSUS FLESH

After the celebration of Pentecost we should be able 10 allow the Holy Spirit to remain in each and everyone who is a Christian, a follows of Christ, indeed, another Christ (alter Christus).

PENTECOST: FEAST OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE HEART AND SOUL  OF THE CHURCH

Jun 01, 2017
My dear People of God, Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ who promised and sent the Holy Spirit! As we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit to the apostles and disciples of Jesus Christ, I present to you the working of the Holy Spirit in our Church.  Many people who call themselves Christians misunderstand and even exploit the idea of the Holy Spirit and abuse His presence and actions in the lives of believers and in the Church.  It is necessary for authentic ...

Tithes Not For Personal Aggrandisement

May 26, 2017
My dear People of God, I am touched by the words of St. Paul: “The love of money is the root of all evil and there are some who, pursuing it, have wandered away from the faith and so given their souls any number of fatal wounds” (1 Timothy 6:10). This brings me to what Jesus Christ himself said about money: “No one can be the slave of two masters: he will either hate the first and love the second, or be attached to the first and despise the second.  You cannot b ...

CHRISTIANITY NOT CHRISTYWOOD

May 18, 2017
My dear People of God, Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord and Saviour of humankind! We are Christians, followers of Christ, anointed ones like Christ! We are as St. Peter wrote, “a chosen race, a kingdom of priests, a holy nation, a people to be a personal possession to sing the praises of God who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light” (1 Peter 2:9). How do we maintain our Christian status? St. Peter was aware of the challenges t ...

CHRISTIANS, LIVE AND ACT AS ANOINTED PEOPLE

May 11, 2017
My dear People of God, We are Christians. The Bible tells us when people began to be called Christians. At the early times, the proclamation of the Gospel was done only to the Jews but later, some followers of Christ went to Antioch and started preaching the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ to the Greeks also. According to the Scripture, “The Lord helped them, and a great number believed and were converted to the Lord” (Acts 11:21). Their conversion attracted the attenti ...

SALUS ANIMARUM SUPREMA LEX!

May 04, 2017
My dear People of God, We have been celebrating Easter, the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ! This celebration should renew our faith and our hope and lead us to focus ever more consistently and with greater commitment on the reason for our faith: our eternal salvation. St. Peter put it clearly: “Blessed be God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who in his great mercy has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and in ...
