32ND  SUNDAY OF THE YEAR (A)

It takes wisdom to know the essential things in life and to stay alert, ever prepared and committed to God, says the Archbishop Most Rev. Valerian Okeke. He notes that by the same wisdom we should not procrastinate but be ever ready for the Lord who comes to each in an unpredictable time. He invites us to keep the torch of God's grace burning with the oil of righteousness. He prays for God's wisdom and love on you and your loved ones this week. Amen
