Father Emmanuel Ihemedu

 

"We are two Catholic churches, one Catholic family striving to live a life of complete service to God and neighbor. At Saint Justin and Saint Michael, Christ is the host and Christ welcomes all. I join my parishioners to invite you to worship with us on Sunday. No matter where you are in life, no matter where you stand in life-single, married, divorced, single mother, single father, homeless, immigrant, handicapped in some way, sick, lonely and alone, widow, grieving - we welcome you."
          - Father Emmanuel Ihemedu, Pastor

MY PRAYER FOR YOU THIS WEEK

By his suffering and death on the cross Jesus changes the horror and ignominy associated with crucifixion to something of a pathway to glory. 'He humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross: Therefore God has exalted him and bestowed on him the name which is above all other names. ‘The paradox of Jesus' crucifixion and triumph helps us to realize that there is a way the worst things that happen in our lives can put us on the path of the best things that can even happen in our lives. Like Jesus our master, we are bound to experience difficulties, challenges, temptations, heart breaks, frustrations, disappointments et cetera. Yet, the lesson inherent in Jesus' triumph on the cross is that every situation of adversity can either become a danger or an opportunity depending on how you handle it. Dear God, help me to realize that when I face challenges in life, I am united with you in your suffering and death for my salvation. Help me to believe that like you, I shall be victorious but only if I remain steadfast, Amen.
