As the Roman Catholic Church in the Diocese of St. George’s-in-Grenada concluded the Liturgical Calendar last week Sunday with the celebration of the Feast of Christ the King, the men of the Church have been urged to “turn to Jesus and ask for mercy.”
The Feast of Christ the King is observed in the local diocese as the Feast Day for Catholic Men.
Diocesan Administrator Fr. Clifton Harris who celebrated the Feast Day with the men at the Church of Christ the King at Grand Roy, St. John’s admonished them to embrace what Jesus offers and believe in Him by calling on His name when they face problems.
“My message for you… is for you to turn to Jesus and ask Him to remember you,” he said.
He singled out St. Luke’s Gospel as being the one that mainly articulated God’s mercy to mankind as a God for the lonely and the unworthy.
Fr. Harris reminded them that it is never too late to discover the love of Christ.
He noted that just as the story of the thief who was hanging from the cross at the time of Jesus’ crucifixion, one of the men might be someone who, for years might be carrying a hurt in his heart such as a resentment against a family member.
The Diocesan Administrator made a special appeal to the men including the young ones to receive Jesus’ message.
“Commit yourselves to His promises because he never fails. He is always there for us,” he said.
