Have Faith

06-27-2021Weekly ReflectionRev. Victor C. Yakubu

Christianity has to do with building up your faith in Jesus. There are many things you can learn from the Catechism class, from your parents and from your peers. But it all depends on your personal disposition to translate this information into your spiritual life. It is said that “you can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him to drink it,” this applies to our lives as human beings in the sense that we have all the tools necessary for our spiritual growth, yet we take many things for granted.


The Catholic Christian and the Body of Christ

06-06-2021Weekly ReflectionRev. Victor C. Yakubu

I have visited several Catholics in private homes, hospices, and hospitals in need of the anointing of the sick and communion in my priestly practice. In discussing the Catholic faith with them, they always tell me, ‘Jesus is important to me.’ The sacraments of the anointing of the sick and Holy Communion bring Jesus to those in need of God’s presence especially when sick and cannot attend Mass. While anointing brings healing to their souls, the Eucharist strengthens them to bear the pains of suffering.
