21ST SUNDAY OF THE YEAR (A)

God is the source of all authority and as His children, He gives us a share in it for the service of the Gospel and common good says the Archbishop, Most Rev. Valerian Okeke. He exhorts us to appreciate the gifts we have and use them for the worship of God expressed also in the service to humanity. He prays that the Father the source of good and authority blesses you, and expand the coast of your favours. You are ever in his spiritual regards.
