Disturb God

Jesus was always very sensitive to the needs of the people. A blind man asked Jesus for healing.

The man disturbed Jesus. And the disciples stopped him from disturbing Jesus. But He welcomed that disturbance. That is the love of God.

We are allowed to disturb God and blessed by God

Loving Touch

A wise physician said to me, “I have been practicing medicine for past 30 years and I have prescribed many things. But in the long run I have learned that for most of what ails the human creature, the best medicine is LOVE.”

“What if it doesn’t work?” I asked

“DOUBLE the dose” he replied

A Moment to Meditate

A Moment to Meditate - yes! We can.

Jesus is angry with the masses furiously asking them to get out of the church rather than a market place. In the recent times we find that commercialization of our faith and belief is eating into our system. Pictures of The Sacred Heart which we hold in the first door step of our houses , blessed and revered now finds place in garbage’s/ dustbins, kicked around in pavements, stuck on walls and corners where people deface. The pictures of Jesus of Mercy, Of Saints, are at no mercy too. Many of these are the advertisements for the numerous retreat sessions we have all along the year that many tend to believe it greater than the sacrifice of the Holy Mass. How are we going to get our people to understand the faith reposed in the catechism of the Catholic Church?

The second point is the disturbances that such session create to the neighbourhood that our identity as a peaceful community stands questioned. (Such movements by protestant / evangelistic groups were not approved by Catholic Church of our younger days)

Do we require to blare the shouts of Alleluia, with nerve racking blasts so that our multi religious society of elders and children keep quite rather be termed antichristian? What about our attitudes to watch this punishment to children studying for numerous exams? Are we persecuting them too?

At the drop of a hat we have people who attend retreat sent out to the common masses, the business communities with the pictures of our Lord maybe with a novena asking for donations to such retreats. Isn’t it high time that we have a standard to refrain us from putting people in such tight spot? What has happened to our missionary way of life? Printing a coupon is all what is required for collection not knowing how the poor manages, many of them out of fear would part while the affluent will stand up only to be noticed. Many ways could be thought to generate funds but without resorting to such ways. Also the transparency in such accounts should be published which never happens. We find also that many of the present younger religious hold the costlier mobiles, laptops, motorbikes and a/c cars for PERSONAL USE. How much are they contributing as we deny to our children many of such to contribute to needs within poor families and the Church.

I make this honest appeal to the religious community to hold retreats in a more spiritual way than resorting to shouts and chants to he heard in heaven, I am sure Our Lord is not Deaf.

Children are not only a gift of God, but also the work of God.

If God has given you children, then your first duty to God is to raise those children right. Your children are God's work for you. They're His children too, of course, but He wants you to take care of and train them.
