Homily - Friday after Ash Wednesday C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Christ speaks about the originality of our Christian faith, our Christian revelation as well as Christian tradition. The Christian Faith experience - as given by Christ Himself - is unique. It's not an appendage of any other ancient religion out there. Why do we pray? Why do we fast? Why do we engage in meditation and contemplation? Why do we practice almsgiving? Why do we attend to the needs of the poor, the lonely and unloved, the marginalized, the immigrants/stranger (documented or not), those in prison, and the sick and Homebound? We do all because of Christ. Christ is our ONLY standard of reference. As St. Paul declares, "Indeed I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord" (Phil 3:8).

Homily - Thursday after Ash Wednesday C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

What is faith about? Is it just about lip-service profession or proclamation: "I believe! I believe?" Is it just a declaration, "I accept Jesus as my Lord and personal Savior?" Not at all! It's a lot more. In the words of Jesus, "Not every one who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven" (Matt 7:21). Hence, we follow Jesus and rely on His mercy, compassion and love by striving to follow the path He shows to us through His Church (the pillar of the truth" - 1Tim 3:15). Let us never take God's mercy for granted. His mercy has always been there even in the Old Testament times. Those who ignored His word/will didn't get their way. Jesus says, "If a man loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him" (John 14:23). Or as St. John stated, "Little children, let us not love in word or speech but in deed and in truth" (1John 3:18).

Homily - Ash Wednesday 2016 Year C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

We accept ashes, today, as a mark of true Christian repentance. We're called to undertake an inward journey of faith, hope and love. We recall our human pride, our worldly boasts, our disobedience and taking on those who have offended us avail nothing because we're nothing without God. We turn to God, the Author of life, begging for mercy. God is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and rich in mercy. He wants us to return to the right path. Let us respond with all our hearts. This is a providential moment of grace. May God bless our Lenten observances, help us to bear fruit of authentic Christian living, and help our brothers and sisters to follow Him in spirit and in truth.
