HOMILY FOR THE FEAST OF OUR LADY MOTHER OF AFRICA. 30th April 2020

HOMILY FOR THE FEAST OF OUR LADY MOTHER OF AFRICA. 30th April 2020

Acts 1:12-14, Luke 1:46-55 and John 2:1-11

Today’s gospel presents us with the wedding feast at Canna. Jesus’ presence confirms that marriage is an efficacious sign of Christ’s presence. Again, Mary’s intercession saved the couples from disgrace, for it is a thing of shame not to have wine in a wedding feast in Palestine. Lastly, Mary gave us the great advice “do whatever he tells you”. Beloved, if we must enjoy Mary’s intercession we must do what the Son says in the Bible. This last day of April forms a background for May Devotion. May we be saved from disgrace and find strength to keep his laws. Mary Mother of Africa, pray for us.

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Hail, Holy Queen

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Amen.

    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your head before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or
    tips? Thanks!
