Pastor’s Corner for the 31st Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C by Rev. Fr. Nobert Munekani SJ


For the next 9 days in a row, we begin our anovena to St Martin De Porres:


St Martin imitated our Lord, who was meek and humble of heart. There was no pride or vanity in his soul. He knew that God is our Creator and that we are but His creatures. He understood that God loves us as children and only wants us to be happy. So, he submitted entirely to the Holy Will of God. Let us all imitate St Martin by humbly doing the Will of God in all things.

Daily Prayer

Most humble Martin de Porres, your burning charity embraced not only the poor and needy but even the animals of the field. For your splendid example of charity, we honour you and invoke your help.
From your place in heaven, hear the requests of your needy brethren, so that, by imitating your virtues we may live cheerfully in that state in which God has placed us.

O humble St Martin, ask our Lord to give us the grace of true humility that we may not be puffed up with foolish pride, but may be contented with the gifts that God gives us. Obtain for us the light of the Holy Ghost that we may understand, as you did, that pride is a deceit of the devil and that only by doing the Will of God can we be truly happy. Amen.

Concluding Prayer

Our Father
Hail Mary x3
Glory Be

For the Sick: Let remember to pray for the sick especially Elizabeth Mooi.

Fr. Nobert Munekani
