Welcome to KSMNigeria.org

In d 15th Sunday Year B readings we are called to be Disciples of Christ In the readings we are called to be Disciples of Christ, with the attending sweeties, difficulties and challenges. Amos otherwise called the Prophet of Social Justice was called to speak to the people at the time of great prosperity during the reign of Jeroboam II. As a consequence of great wealth and affluence religion was pushed to the background and the rich oppressed the poor. Prophesies and revelations became professional ventures. Amazial the priest of Bethel speaks as if Amos was one of those professional prophets who told the King what he wanted to hear and received large sums of money thereafter for their services.

 

 In the Gospel Mark narrates the commissioning of the disciples of Jesus. You may recall that immediately after the rejection of Jesus by his fellow Nazarenes Jesus and his Disciples moved out. He sent them out in twos for the sake of witness and fellowship. According to Deuteronomy 19:15 ‘the evidence of two or three witnesses is required to sustain any charge’. They were to preach the Good News, with definite instructions not to carry money, extra tunic, extra shoes, no bag. The 3-fold ministry of the 12 is summarised as preaching, casting out devils and healing the sick at no cost.

 

In the Second Reading Paul the Apostle of the gentiles commences his writings on the subject of the Mystery of Salvation and of the Church. The sum total of his theme is how the whole body of creation, having been cut off from the Creator by sin, is decomposing. Rebirth is affected by Christ reuniting all its parts into an organism with himself as the head so as to reattach it to God. The human race (Jews and pagans) and the angelic worlds are brought together again through the fact that they were saved by a single act of his death and resurrection. Those whom he has taken as his own the blessings will be fully complete when the Kingdom of God is complete and Christ comes in glory.

 

The Psalmist speaks to himself in tones of hopefulness to his people now returned from exile. He is sure about God.  He will bring peace to his people and friends provided the people are sincere and consistently loyal.

 

Christ has also commissioned us to serve him, the church and others through KSM Nigeria, to preach the Good News. In this vocation which we have willingly taken let us be sincere, loyal, disciplined and committed, bearing all hardships that are inevitable in discipleship of Christ. I wish you happy and fruitful 15th Sunday.

The KSM Nigeria Anthem

Mathias Kalemba, dear Saint Mulumba
Brave Champion of faith for all Africa
Our Patron art thou do pray for your Knights
Your faith and courage to emulate.

With four limbs chopped off, you still derided
And strongly disdained satanic fury
You lingered limbless Thursday thro’ Sunday
To God your soul then commended.
