Homilies/Reflections

Matthew 1:20; "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife."
By REV. FR. PAUL ANIGBORO

God was doing something new, something extraordinary, in the life of Mary and of Joseph, indeed, in the life of the human race. The unprecedented nature of what God was doing led to understandable fear and anxiety in the lives of those most directly affected, Mary and Joseph. Both of them needed a word of reassurance, “Do not be afraid” at the beginning of this new phase of what God was doing.
 
In times of transition when disturbing events are occurring around us, we all need to hear those words, “Do not be afraid.” They are words which assure us of God’s presence, God-with-us, Emmanuel, at the heart of all that is happening, even at the heart of his total self-surrender on the rocky hill of Calvary.
 
Lord, may we be assured of your presence in our midst even in the dark moments of our lives. Amen. Remember me in your prayers as I mark my 3rd priestly anniversary today. Thank you!
 
Good morning and do have a wonderful day ahead. God loves you.
