Editorial – November 2019

There is an hour, a minute, a second which you will remember forever – when you know instinctively on the basis of the most inconsequential evidence, that something is wrong. Something sad, an event none can bear has taken place. Someone just breathed for the last time. Death comes like a thief. When, where, how…. these are the questions which have no answers. It is one of the most difficult things that all of us will have to deal with in our lives, when a member of our family, a friend, a loved one, leaves us, never to return. Otilia Clovis Da Costa, our dear friend and the Read more

ALL SAINTS DAY

The Catholic Church commemorates 1st November as “All Saints Day”, A day prior to “All Souls Day”. Why does the Church celebrate this special day? when we have the entire calendar earmarked by the days of Saints?

On this day Catholics honour all those who have entered heaven. Who is a Saint? A Saint is a person who is recognized as having an exceptional degree of holiness or likeness or closeness to God. However the use of the term “Saint” depends on the context and denomination. In Roman Catholic and other denominations the doctrine says all the faithful deceased in heaven are considered to be Saints. Generally all Saints day is a Catholic Holy day of Obligation meaning all Catholics are required to attend Mass. Other Countries have different rules according to the Bishops Conferences. Read more

Souls in Purgatory

My bond with the Souls in Purgatory began in the 1960’s when the smooth flow of life with its fun and laughter got disturbed. My older brother got ensnared in bad company, vices, and alcoholism. This habit of alcoholism did not exist in our family, so for me personally it had a damaging effect. Day time was unpredictable and every night was to be dreaded. His returning home late at night, after night duty, in a drunken state caused much concern and sleepless nights. Being of little faith then, I saw this as a punishment from God, sending us minor tragedies, making life unpredictable, stressful, and unhappy. Read more

DIETETICS AND HEALTHY PRACTICES

We’ve all probably heard the quote, “You are what you eat”. Here I would like to emphasize on the fact that, it is we, who are responsible for choosing what we want to eat or what we want to feed our families. Dietetics is too vast a topic, yet we ought to know a few basics. If our bodies are human machines food is our fuel.   How well we eat, affects how well our bodies work. Thus balanced diet is that which can provide balanced energy required for use by the body and for storage. We often hear of various types of diets. Well then, when does one need to follow them?

To make it easier for one to understand, I would categorize dietetics into, normal diet, preventive diet, restricted, and special diet. Read more

Value of talent and to learn its value at an early age

All youngsters are having times of seconds, millions of minutes, scores of hours, many days and umpteen years in their pockets to equip with talent provided they can value talent at an early age coupled with smart and hard working.

There are various talents, like music, sports, crafts, art and many others, while some are limited to years of performance besides planting within oneself various attributes, while others make available dividends at any age in life. Read more

Children’s day

Unless one becomes like a little child, unless one is reborn, one cannot enter the kingdom of God. True greatness is in becoming small! It is to the little ones the secrets of God are manifested. Happy  is everyone who receives the little ones and woe to him who leads children astray!(Mt. 18.5)Surely the God who appears to us in Christ has a paternal and maternal heart , a tender and all-embracing heart in which every child finds a warm and caressing place.

When and How Is Our Living Righteous?

Our living will be accepted as ‘Righteous,’ if we maintain a right relationship with God, with self, with family members, with the society and with the environment.

Why God is first, and not Self?

Because, if God did not create me, would I be existing to have a relationship with anyone, including myself? So, we can, readily and rationally accept Jesus ‘Teachings: – Read more
