Fr Andre Mahanna’s Message for May 19-2017: Gift III- Homeless and God

In Matthew Chapter 8: 19-20 we read: Then a scribe came and said to Him, “Teacher, I will follow You wherever You go.” Jesus said to him, “The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.”

Earlier this week, while in Washington D.C. to educate and inform people about the Plight of forced Christian immigration, refugees, religious persecution and human trafficking of children, sex slavery of women, and young girls and boys, I got to a point where I really needed to take a break and sit at a street corner, eat a little and reflect. Doing this, it started raining. I decided to stay outside, hid under a little umbrella and continued eating and reflecting. People passing by, in hurry, under the rain, seeking refuge. All of a sudden there was this one man, a black male in his upper age, no teeth in the front, walking slowly as he is so well acquainted with such situations. Read more

Fr Andre Mahanna’s Message for Second Sunday of May 14-2017

Gifts- II-
The Virgin Mary
She is the mirror of the splendor of God, through whom the Light of God first shone to mankind in the incarnation of the Son of the Living God, the Lord Jesus Christ. She is the Virgin Mary who, in this month, we honor as the Lady Mother of Life, Queen of Lebanon, Star of the East, Our Lady of Fatima.

My dear brothers and sisters in the Lord Jesus Christ, many times in our lives as the children of the Father in Heaven, we are encouraged to stop and reflect on the meaning of our life under the protection of Our Lady and in relation to her work in the Plan of God for our salvation. We do have a mother yet it is up to us to call upon her aid and to ask for her intercession. Read message
