It’s time to put an end to this. It’s time for us to let ourselves be loved. Joy Bell“ Read More
As I witnessed our beautiful children receiving their 1st Sacrament of the Holy Communion, I am filled with joy and gratitude. As I lovingly watched as each of these children take their first Holy communion, the body and blood of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ I am filled with tears of joy and gratitude for I looked at them and remembered how hard it has been for these children to be where they are today, how I helplessly cried every night for your divine intervention, years and hours spent in hospitals and in emergency rooms, tears rolled down my face when I recall days when I will visit the hospital and got shocked when the child has been taken to a side ward, fear gripped me thinking I might have lost the child only to be relieved that he is in a side ward. As each one come forward to receive You in the Holy Communion, the video of each one painful and traumatic story flashed before me and I am filled with gratitude because your Mercies endureth forever.
