Daily Capsule - Fr. Francis Afu

Capsule for the Day
It all began with the Pope' message during World Youth Day 2016 "Don't be a couch potato". It was a powerful message that left me ruminating. How do I want to live my life, I asked. I had no idea then I was going to be the writer of the Capsule for the Day. But I did and it's now one full year.
I didn't believe the first ever written Capsule for the Day would touch a life. I was surprised when Tess, the first reader of the Capsule wrote back "Fr. Francis you don't know what your short message has done to my relationship. Ryan and I are good". Tess wanted help. I gave her the Capsule.
But it turned out that Ryan wanted to take more doses of it. From Ryan and Tess, the Capsule has gained a wide readership. I thank all whose comments, suggestions and criticisms have helped kept the Capsule alive. Truth be told, Capsule for the Day is the fruit of prayer and God's Grace.
