Reflection (Based on teaching shared by Fr. Stephen Mayanja during Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament at 5pm; Lubaga Cathedral) Focus; John 13:16-20

In today's Gospel Jesus washed the Disciples feet. It was a sign of love for the disciples and to show them to do the same to others. Therefore, the theme of today's Gospel is *Love*

The fruit of spending Quiet Time with the Lord is growth in our prayer life. Jesus spent alot of time praying to His Father; For instance in the Garden of Gathsemane during the night following his arrest, he was deep in prayer.

The fruit of prayer is faith and the fruit of faith is love because you first believe then you love. The fruit of love is serving and having served well we receive peace.

Prayer and faith without love are empty and loving without serving is empty. Some artists passionately sing about love and cause others to change. However when some are asked about that they think about thier marriage, they shy away.

In 1John 3:18 John says that let us love not in word or speech but in deed and in truth. St. Augustine, when asked about faith said, "love has helping hands, feet that reach out to the needy, and if danger befalls someone you love you will run straight away to reach out to them. Yesterday, when the Dormitory in Buddo caught fire, parents left their places of work, some without permission and within a short time they had flooded the gate to check if their children were well.

Love has eyes that sees those in need and ears that listen to the needy. Love is not a name to be talked about but to be practiced. Jesus talks to his disciples about love and expects them to practice it as he did.

Under many accessions, when Jesus practiced love but they didnot understand but later, by God's grace, they got to understand.

At the last super, Jesus washed the disciples feet and they didnot understand, but when they perceived His kind act Peter said, not only feet but his hands and head. It is not surprising that Peter had refused Jesus to was his feet. This is because washing of the feet was a role of a slave who would wash the feet of a visitor coming from a long journey. Jesus didn't wash their feet because he was their slave but gave them a challenge that if He has done it, then how about them? That is why He said, "A slave can be no greater than his Master"

More Immigration offices have been opened up due to the high demand for travel. Many qualified people have given up on their professions and gone our of the country to do the work of slaves. This is not because we don't have enough here but because of a few people who have alot and cannot where resources with others.

Everyone should try to make a contribution to society, that their life will be of value. Many of us have tried to do this and this is commendable. Those who have not started should try to out their love in action.

May our Mother Mary pray for us to love as she to the point of accepting to bear for us a saviour.

Makubuya rallies disgruntled former Mengo ministers to attack the kingdom as Mulwanyamuli rebukes him

Owek Apollo Makubuya is rallying disgruntled former Mengo ministers to attack the kingdom in his bid to be appointed Katikkiro.

Among those Makubuya called and responded to his call is former Health Minister Ben Mukwaya. Mukwaya’s response was to release an article claiming Mengo had failed to look after the Kabaka. When Mukwaya served as minister, he wrote to Ministry of Health to ban Kabaka’s health camps that directly benefit his subjects.

Mukwaya registered the Kingdom ambulance and mobile hospital in his names and has refused to hand them over despite several warnings over the years. A search at URA has confirmed this.

This is the man Makubuya is relying on to attack Mengo by promising that he will appoint him his deputy once Kabaka names him Katikkiro.

In his calls former Mengo ministers say Makubuya promised them to return to Mengo. “This us our chance to lead. If we don’t make Baganda hate Mayiga, Kabaka won’t make a change. In everything we do, we must soil his name,” Makubuya said.

Makubuya also called Owek Sylvia Mazzi, Owek Dennis Walusimbi, Owek Bwenvu and Owek Emmanuel Ssendawula. He called Owek Mulwanyamuli Ssemogerere as well.

However, former Katikkiro Owek Mulwanyamuli and former Deputy Katikkiro Owek Ssendawula told him to stop his tricks.

MTN call records show Makubuya made the calls this week.

“Owek Mulwanyamuli and Owek Ssendawula were so disappointed and warned him to stop the attacks on Mengo in his quest for the Katikkiro job,” a very reliable source close to both leaders told us.

“They told him that Buganda right now doesn’t need its leaders fighting each other. They told him to sup

FEAST OF SAINTS PHILIP AND JAMES

THANKS FOR JOINING US.

Reflection (Based on homily shared by Fr. Achilles Mayanja during 6.30am Mass at Lubaga Cathedral). Focus 1 Cor 15:1-8; Psalms 19; John 14:6-14

Let us be faithful apostles like Phillip and James

Today, Mother church celebrates the Feast of Philip and James, the Apostles. Phillip was one of the Apostles to be called. He was a family man and had several daughters. Three of his daughters became saints. Phillip is the one who met Nathanael and told him, "We have found the Messiah". But Nathaniel responded, "can anything good come from Nazareth?" Then Phillip said to him, come and see. And when Nathaniel encountered the Messiah, there was no turning back. He therefore took Nathaniel to Jesus. He died for his faith.

James was the brother of Jesus. He too preached the Gospel and died for his faith.

The key lessons we learn are;
a) By virtue of our Baptism, we too are called to preach the Gospel and to witness Christ.

b) When we encounter Christ, let us tell others about Christ and lead them to the Messiah.

c) Let us uphold the authentic teaching of the church and pass it on to the next generation without adding anything or compromising it.

Let us stick to the teaching of the church and be faithful to what was taught to us.

Mother Mary, Queen of Apostles, pray for us.

Eternal rest grant our Archbishop Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga O Lord, and let your Perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in Peace, Amen.

Reflection on the 5th Sunday of Easter

shared by Msgr Charles Kasibante

Focus Acts 9:26-31; Psalms 22; 1John 3:18-24; John 15:1-8

In today's Mass, we are joined with a team from Boston who have come to pray for the soul of our beloved Archbishop, Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga. The late Archbishop strived for heaven and led well the people of God as their Shepherd.
He taught us the Word of God, the Catechism and taught us to live a Sacrament life. If people follow what he taught them, they will live a fulfilling life both spiritually and physically.
The Archbishop strived to ensure that the Catholics are grounded in the Word of God. He promoted the Catholic Bible; as we know that our Bible has some additional books and is bigger. He therefore worked so hard together with the Bible Society that the bible is published. It is now upon us to ensure that we read it. He had declared this year the *Year of the Bible* to help the Catholics to read and reflect on the Word of God in their Families. He further encouraged that each family should have a bible which should be read every day.
He taught people denounce the devil and to stop going to shrines. He taught us to believe and uphold our Lord Jesus Christ and not to lapse back to the devil's ways.
He taught us to value our lives and always emphasized that our life is precious and therefore one needs to seek treatment as well as regular checkups to ensure a good life.
He worked hard to ensure that people move out of poverty. He promoted that people should come together and work together; promoted the formation of SACCOs in all parishes of Archdiocese of Kampala and promoted Financial literacy.
The Archbishop strived to improve the Housing Condition of the people. In his Development Program of *Wekembe* there was a housing program that offered soft loans towards housing.
He promoted modest dressing and always emphasized that a great fashion is that one where one covers their bodies and is not a source of temptation to anyone.
As we pray for him, let us also take up what he taught us that our life may be meaningful.
Reflecting on the readings of the day; In the first reading, Paul introduced himself to the Disciples. The people were scared of him because he previously persecuted the church. Barnabas explained to the people that Paul had converted. And when Paul changed, there was no turning back. He took the Gospel forward. Let us emulate him and also do what the church teaches us.
In the second reading, John says that our love shouldn't be in word but in deed. What we believe should be reflected in our actions. Let our homes be grounded in love when the Mother and Father truly love each other in deed.
Let's also love one another. In this country, there is a lot of brutality and murders. We pray during this month of the Rosary that there may be conversion among people in this country.
The Holy Father requested that during this month of the Rosary we pray that Covid may stop. But let's also pray for our country that people may change.
In the Gospel, Jesus says that He is the Vine and we are the branches. In Baptism, we become children of God. Let us remain close to Jesus the vine by reading the Word of God, by praying and prioritizing receiving Sacraments. Let us continue living Christ, hold on Him then we will bear much fruit.

Mother Mary, pray for us.

Reflection (Based on Homily shared by Fr. Alex Kambagira during Mass to Lubaga Cathedral) Focus Acts 12:24-13:5a; Psalms 67; John 12:44-50

I came to the world as light so that whoever believes in me might not be in darkness.

Jesus came to the world and found the darkness of inequality, bad leadership, corruption among us. He came that He may be the light.

We who believe in Him as should not be in darkness. He came as the way, the truth and the light. When you accept Jesus, you have to let go of the darkness of revenge and get into the light of forgiveness, from laziness to being hardworking; back biting to preaching the Word of God, from theft and robbery to being honest and transparent; from a life if not praying to leading a prayerful life.

Let us stop wasting time in darkness and focus on doing things that build us. We cannot abandon darkness without knowing God and believing Him.

Let us remember our Baptismal promise, to keep the light shining.

Mother Mary, pray for us.

LUBAGA CATHEDRAL DAILY MASS REFLECTION

shared by Fr. Richard Mwebe

Focus; Acts 11:19-26; Psalms 87; John 10:22-30

Last Sunday we celebrated the *Good Shepherd Sunday* . If we have a Good Shepherd, then it means we also have the good sheep who listen to the Good Shepherd.
In Matthew 16:24-25; Jesus says that, "Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it".
The early Christians followed the Shepherd and persevered under all persecutions. Following Jesus includes facing persecution.
We too gave been persecuted but we need to be strong and keep witnessing Christ. Recently when we lost our Archbishop, Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga and hurried him in his Cathedral, many voices on the media unkindly criticized the Catholics for burring the Archbishop in the Cathedral saying we are Cannibals; not knowing that this a common practice. For instance, St.s Peter and Paul were buried in their Basilicas.
The readings therefore call upon us to stand firm and hold on to God under all circumstances. Let us witness Christ knowing that the Hand of the Lord is with us.

Mother Mary, comfort of the afflicted, pray for us.

"I am the gate of the sheep. I came that they might have life and have it more abundantly".

We all know the use of a gate. You know the use of a gate/ a door. We enter through a door to get something and use the door as an exit from danger. Jesus is the door that we use to get something or to flea from the devil.

The thief has no friendship with us. He comes only to steal, kill and destroy. Jesus came that we may have life. A thief only comes to sn**ch from us what we have.

Jesus wants His sheep to have life and He forgives us when we come to Him. Let's keep
in prayer and we shall have life. And it's we with life who have to help others get life. Therefore, we are called to be good shepherds as parents, at our places of work and everywhere so that all will receive the life in it's fullness.

Mother Mary, pray for us.

Good Shepherd Sunday
Homily shared by Msgr. Wynard Katende during 10am Mass at Lubaga Cathedral
Focus Acts 4:8-12; Psalms 118; 1 John 3:1-2; John 10:11-18

VIDEO - https://youtu.be/oHGaSCClboQ

The harvest is abundant but the labourers are few. So ask the Master of the harvest to send out labourers of His harvest. These are the words of Christ as we read from Luke 10:2. Following Jesus' concern, the Church puts in place the Vocations Sunday on 4th Sunday of the Easter Season as the Good Shepherd's Sunday as the Vocations Sunday.

In John. 10:7-18; Jesus says that He is the Good Shepherd who lays down His life for us.

Pope Francis chose that this Good Shepherds Sunday be celebrated in the Framework of St. Joseph. In this year, we remember the 150 years since Pope Pius announced St. Joseph as Patron of the Church. This was after the life and mission of the church was geopadised by the devil.

The theme of this Sunday is, *"St. Joseph, the Dream of Vocations"* We all get both good and bad dreams. We try our best to fulfill the good dreams and avoid the bad dreams.

God talked to Joseph 4 times in a dream. *In the first dream (Mathew 1:20-21)* God told Joseph not to be afraid to take Mary as his wife into his home. *In the Second dream (Matthew 2:13)* God told Jeseph to rise and take the child and his mother to Egypt and stay there until He tells them to return. *In the third dream (Matthew 2:19-20)* God told Joseph to rise and take the child and his mother back to Isreal when King Herod had died; *and 4th dream in Matthew 2:22,* Joseph was told to settle in the region of Galilee instead of Judea.

God's call can be difficult to fulfill and accepting it may seem risky. We are called to emulate St. Joseph who was forced to change his perception and dreams for the will of God.

Matthew 1:19 refers to Joseph as a righteous man. He suffered silently as per the will of God and had to change his plans and his will. Only by setting aside our own programs can we truly say YES to God's will.

God conveys His plans to us in gentleness. This is how He called Abraham in *Genesis 12 and Samuel in 1Samuel 3:4-20* received their Vocations.

God gave St. Joseph graces in his vocation. He was called to be Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Foster Father of the son of God. Joseph and Mary uniquely embraced virginal marriage.

St. Joseph is the Model of Vocation of Service. He lived entirely for others and not for himself and played a key role in our redemption. This was because he was sustained by the love of God. Vocations of marriage, Priesthood and religious life require this kind of maturity.

St. Joseph is presented as the Good Shepherd. He protected Jesus and is now the protector of the Universal Church. He would never waste his time on things he couldn't control but cared for what God entrusted to him. Every Christian vocation refuses us to pursue our own ambition but pursue what God has entrusted with us.

Fidelity was one of his characteristics. In *Matthew 1:19* Joseph is called the righteous man who perseveres quietly and does the will of God. This fidelity is the secret of a happy life.

Our society needs to be re-evangilised to. As it was 150 years ago, many have diverted from the true teaching of the church and preaching their own Gospel. Many religious have left their sheep, there is alot of domestic violence and divorce is common.

We need to pray for more dedicated Vocations after the example of St. Joseph and we need to financially support formating houses and pray as Jesus bid us that God sends more Vocations into His Vineyard.

St. Joseph, Pray for us.

Yours in Christ,

God's call can be difficult to fulfill and accepting it may seem risky. We are called to emulate St. Joseph who was forced to change his perception and dreams for the will of God.

Matthew 1:19 refers to Joseph as a righteous man. He suffered silently as per the will of God and had to change his plans and his will. Only by setting aside our own programs can we truly say YES to God's will.

God conveys His plans to us in gentleness. This is how He called Abraham in *Genesis 12 and Samuel in 1Samuel 3:4-20* received their Vocations.

God gave St. Joseph graces in his vocation. He was called to be Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Foster Father of the son of God. Joseph and Mary uniquely embraced virginal marriage.

St. Joseph is the Model of Vocation of Service. He lived entirely for others and not for himself and played a key role in our redemption. This was because he was sustained by the love of God. Vocations of marriage, Priesthood and religious life require this kind of maturity.

St. Joseph is presented as the Good Shepherd. He protected Jesus and is now the protector of the Universal Church. He would never waste his time on things he couldn't control but cared for what God entrusted to him. Every Christian vocation refuses us to pursue our own ambition but pursue what God has entrusted with us.

Fidelity was one of his characteristics. In *Matthew 1:19* Joseph is called the righteous man who perseveres quietly and does the will of God. This fidelity is the secret of a happy life.

Our society needs to be re-evangelized to. As it was 150 years ago, many have diverted from the true teaching of the church and preaching their own Gospel. Many religious have left their sheep, there is a lot of domestic violence and divorce is common.

We need to pray for more dedicated Vocations after the example of St. Joseph and we need to financially support formatting houses and pray as Jesus bid us that God sends more Vocations into His Vineyard.

St. Joseph, Pray for us
