“I thought I was happily married, until she told me she was leaving.” To where? I asked thinking that she was going for shopping at Nakumatti, where she usually goes every Saturday afternoon. I was wrong.

This time she was going for good.

“I am tired of this marriage,” she shouted out.

“All you think about is yourself. Your two children. Your car. Your phone. And when you have time to sit with me in the sitting room, it is your Arsenal or Barcelona. I am tired of being equated to Messi in terms of agility. I also want to be made to feel like a woman.”

Theme: non violence, a style of politics for peace

Violence and peace are at the origin of two opposite ways to building society. The proliferation of hotbeds of violence produces most serious negative social consequences. The Holy Father sums up this situation in the expression: ‘A third world war in pieces’. Peace, by contrast, promotes social positive consequences and it allows the achievement of real progress. Therefore, we should act within what is possible, and negotiate ways of peace even where they seem tortuous and impractical. Thus, nonviolence can acquire a more comprehensive and new meaning.

Christmas day 25th December 2016

Theme: The Word become flesh and dwelt among us

Throughout Advent there is a note of underlying joy and expectancy. It reaches its height on the 25th day of December as the feast of the birth of Christ is finally celebrated. “He came into the world that was made through him” John 1:3. The world was not a strange place for Jesus; he was not a tourist visiting a foreign country. Even before his arrival from his heavenly home, this world had been made precisely for this moment. In fact, humanity was made in his own image. Jesus did not have to squeeze himself into a world where he did not fit; he easily slid into the space reserved for him. That is why Jesus felt so comfortable in our world. Little surprised him. Of course, as a man, Jesus was experiencing everything differently than as God.

Christmas Midnight Mass 2016

Written by

Jesusstable

Theme: Today a Saviour has been born to you

Perhaps it is the traditional trappings of the season or the simplistic notion that Christmas is merely the birthday of Jesus; whatever the reason, many of us become preoccupied with the star, the shepherds and the stable as the representations of a long-ago birth. Retelling the story certainly has its merits provided that all the ramifications and dimensions of that event are also appreciated. Each Christmas, we celebrate the coming, not only of a baby Jesus born in Bethlehem, but of the risen and universal Christ. Each Christmas, we are plunged into his coming, past, present and future; in a wondrous intermingling of possession and expectation, we celebrate the abiding and saving presence of Jesus.

Johnxmas

Dear Friends, Christmas is here. In those days, a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the people should be enrolled. It is the reason why Mary and Joseph went to Bethlehem and Jesus was born there as had been prophesized many centuries before. Mic 5:2

Fourth Sunday of Advent Year A

Written by

Josephdream

Theme: God is one with us

The angel said to Joseph in a dream ‘do not be afraid’. This exhortation against fear, preserved in today’s Gospel, enabled Joseph to shake off what must have been frightening worries about Mary, about the coming child, about the need to do the right thing by his pregnant wife, as well as follow the law and keep the curious and the judgmental at bay.  The exhortations ‘do not be afraid’ occurs 80 times in the bible. Each time, the one who hears these words is assured that God is greater than any fear and that there is indeed a remedy to fear. God told Abraham to “fear not” Genesis 15:1 before making a covenant with him. Gabriel said the same to Daniel in the book of Daniel 10:12 when he was terrified by a vision.

Top secret to triple your success in 2017

Written by

2016to2017

This is the time of the year most people make resolutions for the New Year. Resolutions fail because they are not translated into actions to become real. It is not enough to make resolutions for a new year. Have clear actions or activities to achieve them, and a yardstick to measure progress.

What are your priorities?

Written by

priorities

Now that you know who you are, the next step is to ask what does success mean to you, and your key stakeholders.

Your family, relatives, friends and community are critical. At each stage of your life, who are those people with a lot of influence (in your career choice) and interest (in your success?)

3rd Sunday of Advent year A

Written by

Jesus-John

Theme: Getting beyond our illusions

What is heaven like? At one time or another, most of us have given that question some consideration. Our hopes about heaven vary depending upon our age, circumstances and life experiences. For some, heaven promises an end to pain, struggle and every human limitation. For others, heaven holds out the hope of reuniting with loved ones lost for a time but now forever near. If we were to reword this question in a manner more in keeping with the Advent season, we might ask, ‘what will it be like to meet the returning Christ?’ or ‘how will I experience the salvation he brings?’ For the contemporaries of Isaiah and James and Matthew, the question was similar but distinctly messianic in character. Most had formed an opinion about how that question should be answered. For a people whose history had been shaped by foreign oppression from Assyria, Babylonia, Persia and then Rome, messianic hopes were markedly political and the salvation to be wrought by the coming of God’s Anointed was more often than not characterized by a battle for freedom, for rights, for land, for renewed political power and economic stability.
