Fr. George’s Weekly Message:
We celebrate our Grandparents

For some, family is everything. They may be right. However, family may not be eve-rything, but it is certainly the beginning of our being in the world. The family re-ceives us from God and introduces us into the world. It is certainly the bridge. And for this singular reason, family is important. While we acknowledge that father and mother are important beginning of the nuclear family, family goes beyond that. It includes grandparents, uncles, cousins, nephews, nieces, and sometimes persons and friends who have been exceptionally good to the nuclear family. However, this past Friday OLLH School honored our grandparents by celebrating Grandparents Day, which the school children of OLLH take it very seriously every year.
I am a proud beneficiary of the goodness and relevance of grandparents to grand-children. I was born to know only my maternal grandmother. I sometimes I won-der how extraordinarily blessed I would have been had I have the privilege of expe-riencing my four grandparents. My grandmother was part of my life until she died four years after I was ordained priest. Since my mother had to proceed to Teacher Training College after giving birth to my siblings and I, my grandmother was the one who took care of us in all ramifications including bathing and dressing us up for school.
Grandparents offer a lot to their grandchildren, because they had acquired so much internally. Like the word of God said “How becoming to the grey-haired is judgment, and knowledge of counsel to those in years! How becoming to the aged is wisdom, understanding and prudence to the venerable! The crown of old men is wide experience” (Sirach 25:4-6). And, there is a Nigerian proverb that says, “what the elder sees sitting the child cannot see from the tree top.” That is why we are grateful to our grandparents; we need them to nurture us, to teach us and to guide us, because they have been so endowed with experience and blessed with the lessons of life. These we can’t deny our grand-parents irrespective of their individual character and persona.
Further, the reasonableness of acknowledging the role our grandparents play in our lives must wrap around the fourth of the Ten Commandments: “Honor your fa-ther and your mother, that you may have long life in the land which the Lord, your God, is giving you” (Exodus 20:12; see also Mt 15:4; Mk 7:10; Eph 6:2f). That is why, we must do all we can to honor our parents and grandpar-ents and be quick to let go of their imperfections. The relationship between chil-dren, parents and grandparents is a well knitted circles, that the action of a set af-fect future and other sets.
We congratulate and thank our grandparents who have been faithful to their role towards their grandchildren and have positively impacted their lives. For the grand-parents of our school children and school, know that we appreciate you, your grandchildren love you and are filled with gratitude for all you do for them and our school. God’s blessings and reward is yours now and always. Amen
Liturgy: With the celebration of Pentecost, the Easter season comes to an end; and we continue with Week 7 of Ordinary Time till the first Sunday of Advent, Decem-ber 1, 2018. Liturgical color for the season is green. First readings for ferial days (weekdays) are from the Lectionary Cycle II. (See Ordo).
Congratulations to our High School graduates: We congratulate our broth-ers and sisters as we celebrate their Thanksgiving Mass this weekend for successful-ly completing high school education. We urge you to allow yourselves to be led by God the Holy Spirit, so as to live above board, and be successful in your future en-deavors. We thank their parents, grandparents, and teachers for supporting them throughout their studies.
