“Called to self-emptying service.”

MamaBridget-PassingTorchMama Bridget Okonkwo, mother of Deacon Leo, passed away into the arms of Christ on March 13th.  Please keep her and the Okonkwo family in your prayers as they bury her on April 5th.  During my stay with Bridget in her last days, I perceived how incredibly proud she was of the mission that God had given her son Leo to serve poor and marginalized orphans and widows in the Spirit of self-emptying (cf. Phil 2:6-11).  Indeed, it is a mission that has reached so many people even beyond Nigeria and inspired them to engage in this important work.
