Reflection on the Birthday of John the Baptist

by Fr D Mazibuko OSM

This Feast is held even on a Sunday indicating the unique role of John the Baptist as herald of the Messiah. Just like when we celebration of Christ begins with a Vigil Mass with special readings so does this Sunday. As a Church we celebrate the birth of John the Baptist on the 24th of June and on the 29th of August, we celebrate his martyrdom. John the Baptist is the precursor of Christ. His birth is announced by the Angel Gabriel. In the New Testament John the Baptist bears witness to Christ so much so that when Jesus arrives he proclaims as the “lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world”.

Christ the King Youth visits the elderly

by Maduduza Zwane

If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself and take up his cross every day and follow me – LK9:23

Christ the King Parish youth last Saturday visited two elderly people with the symbols of the Pilgrimage of the Cross. This two old ladies belong to the sodalities of St Anne & Sacred Heart and can no longer go to church due to old age.

Young people from Christ the King prayed by reciting the rosary and the Litany of the Sacred Heart together with these bogogo. Information gathered from CTK is that the bogogo were very grateful of the visit.

Kuhle Christ the King. Chubeķani nifake umfutfo

Thank you

Spiritual growth is a process. The first step is openness to growth. Indeed from the very beginning God created us so that we may grow not only spiritually but holistically. How best can we today best can we as Church be catalyst to the growth of the God’s Kingdom?. How can the Church support the growth of the Kingdom in areas where it seem to diminish? With the seed-God’s word implanted in us, how can we allow it to grow within us? I believe the growth of God’s Kingdom is being placed in our hands as we listen to God’s word . are we going to allow it to spread and grow within us?
