“TREASURE IN CLAY JARS” (2 Cor 4, 7)

Fr. LeslieThe second letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians is one of the Proto Pauline letters. St. Paul himself wrote this letter before or after reaching Ephesus from Corinth and Titus carried this letter to Corinth. St. Paul wrote this letter because his second visit to Corinth was a failure. Someone insulted him publicly and undermined his authority with the community (2 Cor 2:5-11). St. Paul uses lot of metaphors, imageries, etc. in his writings. He used the imagery of “clay jars” which is our focus in this article. The imagery of clay is also used by Prophet Jeremiah (Jer 19:1) and Prophet Isaiah (Is 45:9). The verse “2 Cor 4:7” is also important because one of the main theme in the second letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians is “Glory of God” which is expressed in this verse. Read more

Mission Sunday

World Mission Sunday is a day set aside for the entire Catholic Church throughout the world to renew its commitment to the Missionary Movement. It is a day earmarked in the Catholic Church on the Penultimate Sunday of October every year since 1926.

Pope Pius XI declared it as a day to renew, commit, support and pray for the Missions and the Missionaries who work in the remotest villages around the World. In the Hot Sun or in the wildest winter, where there is deficiency of food for the people. The Missionary leaves the comfort zone and works for the poor and proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to the people. Read more

PRAYER versus VIRUS

By now, we all would have noticed that our every encounter, be it with a friend or a stranger; every conversation on the phone or otherwise; every thought, word or deed in the privacy of our own company, begins or ends with the subject of the virus. It may be as a joke, a fear, an advice or a prediction of the future. There is a definite merger of the way we are handling our health and dealing with the virus and even politics.

As another month goes brushing past us, we now understand and accept that there is no 1st of any month, for the end of the virus. Our life has undergone a change – spiritually, psychologically, physically, socially, financially, and globally. Let us look at the future as a “Journey” that we all have to travel together. Everything is undergoing a transformation. Read more

Vincent De Paul- Saint of Charity

“God demands first the heart then the work”

Vincent was born in Pouy on 24th April 1581. His parents Bertrande de Moras and Jean de Paul were a hardworking peasant family. Being an intelligent boy, his father sent him to the nearest Franciscan school. His father then encouraged him to priesthood. He studied theology at the University of Toulouse. He was ordained on the 23rd September 1600 at the age of 19.

In 1608 Vincent was sent to Paris where he worked under the influence of Fr. Pierre de Berulle, where he began his spiritual journey. In 1612 he was made pastor of a poor rural parish, that moved his heart towards the needy. Before a year went by he was called back to Paris to become chaplain to the rich Gondi family and tutor to their children. Read more

The Impact of Social Media on Education

Social media means ways of sharing information, opinions, images, videos using the Internet. Today Social Media is also being used for educational purposes. The way social media is changing education has affected how students express themselves, behave and interact with each other. Social media has been influencing our lives for quite some time now and the trend of using it, is increasing by the day. Today, teachers use YouTube to show students different kinds of videos related to their subjects and hence their productivity has gone miles ahead. As students use Facebook nowadays, teachers have come up with this idea of making a common page for all the students to share the updates regarding any changes in class schedule, dates due for assignment submission etc. It helps students keep in touch with their teachers and ask about the difficulties in the lessons while sitting at home. Now, students don’t need to carry heavy books, they can browse and get more information anytime from Wikipedia. It serves as a dictionary not only for students but also for teachers. The use of social media in education helps students, teachers and parents for getting valuable information while connecting with learning groups and other educational systems. Read more

Hand Hygiene during COVID-19

“You can’t necessarily control what you touch. You can’t control who else touched it. But you can look after your own hands.”

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness, meaning it is mostly spread through virus-laden droplets from coughs and sneezes. If you don’t catch your coughs and sneezes in a tissue and safely dispose it off the virus can end up on surfaces. If someone else touches that contaminated surface, the virus can transfer onto their hand. If you have the virus on your hands, you can infect yourself by touching your eyes, mouth or nose. Hence, “Hand Hygiene” remains the No. 1 tip for preventing the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). Read more
