Editorial – Oct 2021

In the recent times we have seen the upsurge in violent crimes and vandalism the world over. Along with other countries our India too is witnessing so many criminal activities and the victims are finding it difficult to get justice. In this respect our Goa too is not lagging behind, especially when our women are concerned. In the recent past, so many cases of murder, rape, molestation, chain-snatching have been reported. It’s a different matter, when actually; some instances are never reported for fear of social stigma or shame. Every other day social media and newspaper headlines scream about some crime or the other being committed on the fairer sex. Many a times the culprit is arrested and investigation goes on. But very soon the pace slackens, bail is granted and the victim’s hope for justice just lingers on and on. If we notice the crime rate, it is clear that it has seen a steep rise more so with the onset of the pandemic, which has caused a lot of job-loss and unemployment. Presumably, frustration and lack of finances is taking its toll. All this is creating problems and in the bargain Goa’s image as a safe and peaceful place, is getting tarnished. In fact, the Goa State Commission for Women has expressed its concern to see this trend of various types of cases of violence against women. The Commission reported that approximately around 15 to 20 cases are registered with them every single month. These are alarming figures, to say the least. Read more

Hidden catechism in the playing cards

Continuation……

The “7”
The number “7” on the

playing card symbolizes that on the seventh day God took rest after creating the world and the climax of the creation was human person. According to the Book of Exodus, the Sabbath is a day of rest on the seventh day (Genesis 2:2–3), commanded by God to be kept as a holy day of rest, as God rested after creation. The practice of observing the Sabbath (Shabbat) originates in the biblical commandment “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy”. So, on the Sabbath day the Jews don’t work but spend the day in prayer and worship. We, the Catholics consider the Sunday (day of the Lord) as the day to be spent in prayer and worship. Sunday is the Holy day of Obligation. Let’s also not forget that biblically number 7 is the “Perfect Number” or symbolizes ‘Perfection’.

Be A Missionary

The dictionary describes the word ‘Mission’ as sending or Being sent on some service; a calling in life. The important word is SENT. A missionary is one who is sent with a purpose. We know that missionaries go to places where the name of Jesus is not even heard. They go to distant and often challenging places to proclaim Jesus. The choice of the place is not made by the missionary. Rather, he or she is sent by the Power of the Trinity without any fore-knowledge of what he or she will encounter. Their sole confidence is that God will be with them and never abandon them.  Read more

Online participation in the Holy Eucharist

The covid 19 has impacted our life in a huge manner. May it be shopping, education, working etc. We all know the changes and are adapting to it every day. Similarly covid also had a great impact on our spiritual life. The Church too relaxed the rules and asked the faithful to attend the online version of the mass so that they are not totally disconnected from the Church. With the introduction of the online mass it has given a lot of benefits to us. Attending mass at Church/ chapel on Sunday and days of obligation is the 3rd commandment. Under the pain of mortal sin we all are bound to attend mass. Now because of the kind of disease, the individual Bishop exercised his power and lifted the burden of sin of not attending Sunday or holy day mass. So, accordingly an exception is made. However let’s really check if they are benefitsThe covid 19 has impacted our life in a huge manner.
