One zillion 'THANKS' are not enough in appreciation of what God has done and has been doing for our family especially for our mother in the name of Rev. Fr. Raymond Ifeanyichukwu Ezeonu.
Hello readers. I hope your week was swell. I have decided to write this piece on something quite different today. I agree that it is not always the best to compare but in this case, I will in order to highlight areas where in my opinion, Abakaliki should be improving.
Basically, defining philosophy is difficult and controversial, not least because it claims the privilege of determining its own rules. An indirect approach of comparing it to other activities, to seek parallels and analogies might therefore help. We might consider the philosopher in different roles – as joker, as actor and – in this article – as spy.
Pope: To Be A Disciple, Jesus Must Be The Center Of Your Life … Says The way of Christ is the Way of Persecution … Advises New Cardinals

Nigeria must be consecrated to our mother Mary. That process had already begun from the 8th of September to October 10th 2017. All must endeavour to make it a success. Mother Mary is the gate and throne of all graces. All grace from Christ reaches us through our Mother Mary. Our mission is to propagate the devotion to Immaculate Heart of Mary – through rosary recitation, observation of (1st) first Saturday devotion etc. Our Lady is calling on us to make reparation for negligence and ingratitude of man. Many people don’t receive the sacrament or recognize he is in the tabernacle.
Fr. said that a particular little girl saw Jesus in the host bleeding and became afraid and could not receive the communion.
And Jesus told her to tell people to ask (Him) Jesus to make them holy by observing all the necessary tenets.

In fact, a lot took place on this 2nd day. In another mass that took place by 12.50pm. The readings were taken from Col. 1: 9-14 and Lk. 5: 1-11. The officiating priest in his homily which he titled “Evangelizing like Mary” urged all of us to always dedicate ourselves to Mary through the same constant recitation of Rosary.
He told a story of a priest who was traveling with flight. As he got into the plane, he deeped his hand into his pocket to collect his rosary-but could not find it in his pocket. It turned out to be that when he was bringing out his hankie that the chaplet fell off without his knowledge. He went looking for it only to find it elsewhere. So when he wanted to pick it up, he had a ministration not to join the flight. He then had to stay back. But when the plane was about to take off, the woman sitting by the priest reported that a passenger was left out.
They then looked for the priest and he told them that he had a ministration that the plane was not safe to travel with. As they conducted a search, they found a lady suicide bomber with the bomb she was to blast the plane after take-off. Do you see the power of the rosary?
The priest went further to tell another story of same armed robbers on a mission to rob a Rev Fr’s house who relied on the constant recitation of the Rosary. When the Robbers got to the gate of the Rev Fr’s house, they saw some people adorned in white robes like the angels moving about everywhere in the compound, all reciting rosary. The bright light from the rosary was so hot for them to go in. They all went out but have to do the confession later. He finally urged believers to believe in the powerful use of the rosary and recite it constantly.
It rained on this 2nd day from morning till night. The most intriguing part to the convention was at 4.40pm when a priest asked the entire congregation for a rosary procession for those who think they can; under this heavy rain Check out people old and young, all trooping out for a long procession that took all into the various villages in that area. This lasted for an upwards of (2½ ) two and half hours. By the time we returned to the seminary – it was as if one would die of cold. Terming it all as blessing, everybody retired into the rooms for a short rest before the main candle procession that will come up by 10.30pm.
Our Lady is so merciful: By 10.30pm she caused the rain to stop for her children to participate in the candle procession. For the mere fact the day was so cold, most people felt adamant to come for the candle procession. Now, the hosts from Orlu had the mantle of going into various rooms to remind people of the time for the candle light procession.
At about eleven, the people thronged the field with candle light all over the place as we all recited the rosary from the central public address system.
People filed – up in three’s and check out the shaky line of candle light that one could see kilometers away. The whole arena became agog with the song of Ave Maria: the Noble Queen!
It was like the real Heaven on Earth, you would agree with me.
