“Welcome to Owerri Catholic Archdioceses .”

A warm welcome to Maria Assumpta  Cathedral, the seat of the Archbishop of Owerri and the Mother Church for Roman Catholics in Owerri and environs. For over a hundred years countless Christians and visitors of every faith and none have crossed the threshold of this holy place, sensing the presence of God and filling it with prayer and contemplation.

— Archbishop Obinna

 

24th Sunday in Ordinary Time – Year A  

FIRST READING: Sir 27:30-28:7; SECOND READING: Rom 14:7-9; GOSPEL: MT 18:21-35

 

Normal human instinct as well as professional medical advice recognize prolonged anger and unwillingness to forgive one another as injurious to human health. The sinner is prone to this sad disposition. God’s love-covenant with us now makes forgiveness a divine command and hateful anger a grievous sin. Given the horror of living in eternal sadness because of hateful bitterness Jesus commands us to forgive endlessly.   – Archbishop Anthony J.V. Obinna
