Prayer for the Day: His Eminence John Cardinal Onaiyekan
Today is a wonderful Day! A day God displayed His unique creative powers in the creation and empowerment of His illustrious son, His Eminence John Cardinal Onaiyekan. Born 74 years ago. A Prince of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church; A “Good man, full of the Holy Spirit and faith” (Acts 11:24); A wonderful “man full of graces and power” (Acts 6:8); A man of faith, intellectual capacity concerning God, His Church, Politics and the State; an erudite professor of the Sacred Scriptures and a sound promoter of inter-religious dialogue. A man with a very large and generous heart, full of humours and friendliness. So much to say about this gigantic creature of God! Lest we forget and are carried away by the wondrous personality of His Eminence, let us return to our disposition of prayer: Lord, thanks immensely for the gift of John Cardinal Onaiyekan to his family, the Catholic Archdiocese of Abuja and humankind as a whole. We are indeed grateful! Keep blessing him with good health of mind and body, wisdom, knowledge and the strength to complete his divine assignments in this life and beyond. Amen. Your Eminence HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
