Editorial – May 2022

We have recently celebrated the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Rising from the dead on the third day after His crucifixion on the Cross, Jesus gave us eternal hope which is the greatest gift of Easter. This hope makes us have that confidence in God and in His goodness and love. In our own lives we too have our burdens and a Cross to carry, which will lead to sadness and disappointments, but in the end our hope tells us that defeat will always be followed by glory. Covid-19, the dreaded sickness, did bring everything to a standstill. We are painfully aware of the hardships and trauma faced by one and all for such a long period of time. So many people were in a total mess and many even lost their lives and that of their loved ones, leading to a critical and hopeless situation. But we also know that our God is all-powerful and merciful. Slowly but surely, He has made it happen, helping us to turn the page. The infections have been reduced to a bare minimum, almost negligible. In a big way, it’s a victory of sorts over the disease. We could celebrate Easter in the true spirit of hope manifesting victory over the sufferings. Praise and thank God for His goodness. Read more

Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Life often brings to us situations where we have to choose:-

a) Either to forget ourselves and our needs and to reach out to another;

b) With a ‘Can’t be bothered’ attitude, ignore the need of another, giving priority to our own situation and problems.

In the midst of one’s own struggle, to be able to see what the other is going through and reach out in self-forgetfulness, is to truly obey Jesus’s command, “As I have loved you, love one another.” Read more

Ascension of Our Lord

In Christian theology, the Death, Resurrection and Exaltation of Jesus are the most important events, and a foundation of the Christian faith. Easter is the most important festival in the Christian Calendar. It celebrates God raising His Son, Jesus, from the dead, which for Christians symbolizes Jesus’ destruction of the power of sin and the possibility of an after life in Heaven.

Christians remember the events of the last week of Jesus’ life (before the crucifixion) during the Holy Week. Holy Week ends with Easter Sunday which is the day when Christians celebrate Jesus’ resurrection.

St. Philip Neri

St. Philip Neri was a Christian missionary and founder of the Congregation of the Oratory, a community of Catholic priests and lay brothers. He was born in Florence on July 21, 1515 as one of four children to Francesco Neri.

From a very young age, Philip was known for being cheerful and obedient. He was affectionately referred to as “good little Phil.” He received his early teachings from friars at the Dominican monastery in Florence, San Marco.

At the age of 18, Philip went off to live with a wealthy family member in San Germano. He was sent there to assist in – and possibly inherit – the family business. However, soon after his arrival, Philip experienced a mystical vision, which he eventually spoke of as his Christian conversion. This event was an encounter with the Lord and it dramatically changed his life.

Pormoll Editorial – April 2022

It’s been two long years of fear and anxiety amongst the people and the mandatory following of pandemic protocols and SOPs. It appears that thankfully we are now returning to complete normalcy. Carnival, Shigmo and the recent conduct of elections have all passed off with a minimum of fuss and hassles. As a result, the Government has already endorsed the expert Committee recommendations and allowed the opening of cinema halls, gyms, casinos and restaurants at full capacity, after the last month’s decision to open up the Schools and Colleges . However, we have been rightly advised to follow appropriate behaviour which basically means physical distancing and use of masks. Read more

Mhozo Jezu Punorjivont zala….Hanvem Taka Pollelea…..

Marie Magdalene nanv mhojem,
Jezucho hanv khub mog kori,
Mornant tachea vanvoileo dukhancheo zhori.

Hanvem taka pollela. Read more
