The works of Mercy continue beyond the Year of Mercy at Holy Rosary

by Fr Wiseman Nkomo

The house which the family lived in.

Having arrived at Holy Rosary Mission on the 1st of November 2018, I was informed of an incomplete project of building a house for a needy family in the chiefdom of Velezizweni. This would mean the project would be have been in waiting for 2 years. Through mobilization and appealing for funds to continue and complete the project I got members of the community to donate building materials, money and their skills to complete the project.

THEME: COURAGE, RAISE YOUR HEAD!

Last Sunday we looked at the courage portrayed by the seven brothers and their mother who gladly accepted to suffer and die in this world so as to enjoy the promise of eternal life. Likewise Jesus in the Gospel talked of the resurrection of the dead and the life after, which we all need to focus on; not forgetting the prayer or rather the words of encouragement that we got from St.Paul that will help us to remain strong in our daily lives as far as taking up our crosses and following Christ is concerned.

November 2019: Dialogue and Reconciliation in the Near East


Pope’s prayer Intention: Let us pray that a spirit of dialogue, encounter, and reconciliation emerge in the Middle East, where diverse religious communities share their lives together.

THEME: ALL HAVE LIFE BECAUSE OF HIM.

Last Sunday we contemplated and celebrated the life of the saints, men and women who lived here on earth like each one of us. These people detached themselves from earthly things in order to serve and remain connected to God. Why did the saints despise earthly happiness and embraced the cross? Simply because they realised that earthly life is short lived compared to life after death (eternal life) that we all hope one day to attain. The faith of the saints and the hope they had in God gave them the courage to go against many baseless believes and oppressive laws that contradicted the Love and mercy of God. At a certain point also Peter and the other apostles replied before the council: “We must obey God rather than human beings!”(Acts 5:29). A Christian can only have such courage after deeply understanding that the life we have is freely given by God and if we remain faithful to him, even if we die we shall live as Jesus tells us in (John 11:25).
