An Introspective Contemplation on the Priestly Ideals

An Introspective Contemplation on the Priestly Ideals

Uploaded by ABOKI ASSOCIATES

In a world where the priesthood is facing dire challenges like sexual abuse of children, spiritual aridity, misappropriation of funds and gross materialism among others, there is a need for priests who are well experienced in ministry and have developed themselves not only spiritually but intellectually and psychologically to help their fellow priests live above the challenges of the 21st century. One of those refined priests in Northern Nigeria is Reverend Father Professor Moses Orhungur, a scholar and legend. Fr Moses Orhungur has lived up to this task of helping in guiding and instructing his fellow priests in line with the challenges of the time. This is what Father has done in 2008 at the annual retreat in the Catholic Diocese of Jalingo. In this eight chapter book, Father Orhungur has reflected on the essence of a retreat and the attitude of priests during retreats; the true ideals of the priesthood, the challenges of the Nigerian priests in the 21st century; the collective responsibility of all priests; Mary, our mother and model; a lesson on patience; and the importance of reconciliation. Each of these chapters has a unique message for a contemporary priest and the lay faithful.

“Paul’s Account of the Easter Event and Its Apologetic Relevance for the Church in Africa”

“Paul’s Account of the Easter Event and Its Apologetic Relevance for the Church in Africa”

If the whole gamut of salvation history were to be symbolised as a tripod consisting of the incarnation, the cross and the resurrection, there is no doubt that the resurrection of Jesus has received serious attention in theological circles more than the other two because of its centrality to the Christian faith. The church in Africa, in seeking to give objective relevance to her gospel, and confronted with the pleroma of mythologies inherent in the African Traditional Religion, is put in an apologetic position as to the authenticity of the resurrection of Jesus. Thus the need for a constant study of the issues involved in the story of the resurrection, particularly as regards the weight of evidence in its support. It is from this standpoint that this work shall examine Paul’s account of the resurrection found in I Corinthians 15:3—8.

The Role of the Church in Meeting the Challenges of National Transformation

Since the attainment of political independence in 1960, the country has continued to contend with many challenges in nation building. Okam and Chukwu (2005) submitted that the country is plagued with multidimensional problems which are antithetical to peaceful co-existence, such as socio-economic in-balance, instability and inequality Park (2012) also opined that despite the country’s oil wealth, it is still one of the poorest countries in the world where seven (7) million children of primary school age are not in school, youths have no access to quality education and majority are unemployed; educational institutions are without enough infrastructure and no access to safe water, good roads and health services. Also, insecurity, kidnapping, armed robbery as well as unsteady electricity supply have crippled the country.

The Role of the Church in Combating Global Warming in the 21st Century

The Role of the Church in Combating Global Warming in the 21st Century

The Christian religion as practised is more than simply a belief in a transcendent deity or a means to an afterlife. It is rather an orientation of the cosmos plan and the role of the church. Religion in its broadest sense is a means whereby humans recognized the limitations of phenomenal reality which undertake specific practices to effect self-transformation and community cohesion.
