Christking

Theme: Jesus is a king of my heart

Each year as we come to the end of our Liturgical Year, the Church invites us to celebrate this great feast of Christ the King at the end of our yearly cycle of feasts and festivals that have manifested different events in the life of Jesus, Mary, and the other Saints. We are reminded that Jesus Christ is Lord and King. This Feast was instituted by Pope Pius XI in 1925 to deter growing secularism and atheism of that generation. The Feast declares that Christ is king and thus sovereign over all persons, families, nations and the whole universe.

Theme: The future is embraced in the present

After a stint of several years in Africa, a European missionary went on home visit and returned after a few weeks with a fine set of colorful posters that he used to illustrate his sermons. As he had hoped, the pictures proved to be a great success. Each Sunday after the liturgy, many in the congregation would linger around the posters and discuss what they had learned. One day, near the end of the liturgical year, the missionary chose to preach on the end times and the consequences, both good and bad, that would coincide with Jesus’ return as judge and Savior of all. Before the celebration of word and bread, he set up the appropriate poster at the door of the Church and then went to prepare for Mass.

Want to succeed? Change your view!

Written by

If you want to succeed, you need to change your view. With technology, battles don't have to be harder. And the earlier you accept that, the better for you.

That saying is attributed to Ford Motors Corporation staff in the US in the early days of manufacturing where, after spending a lot of time, carrying steel, and then assembling and painting. They all sat down, and were happy with the product they had made – a car.

Looking at what their sweat had created, they were very excited. One of them, as a way of motivating the team for the next car and preparing their mind to it said: “the harder the battle, the sweeter the victory." They all laughed, tossed up their water glasses, in celebration.

They would be ready to start the process all over... and sweet looking forward to another car, and etc

That was until Japan’s Toyota, surpassed them… thanks to technology and agile manufacturing.

They were all surprised: how come a company without big, strong and powerful men like those working at Ford would make many high quality cars that consumers adored and wanted to use all the time?

So, the "the harder the battle, the clearer lack of preparation."

If you still think that your muscles are all you need to succeed, forget it.

Remember, in today’s information led economy and growth, people who know more, are highly exposed and practice smart technologies and working methods that win. 

It is great that Ford realized quickly and updated their methodologies and production processes.

Do the same.

Theme: Our Father is God of eternal life

One of the saddest of all human experiences is the death of a child. Whether that child is four or forty years, the grief of the parent who suffers such a loss is spiritually and psychologically staggering to the extent that mourning may continue for years. As difficult as such a death is; even more unbearable is the death of a child or other loved one among family and friends who are not sustained by any belief in an afterlife. Once I was present at the funeral of such a child; a young boy in our rural area. He was an only child who was hit by the only car in the entire village. His family’s grief was too much to the point beyond consolation.

Succeeding without formal Education

Written by

Mechanic

Educated or not, if you can read or write, you have a minimum foundation to earn a living. You have no reason to just sit.

The starting point is being a person of high moral standing and trustable. Next is acquiring hands-on or practical skills. People are always looking for house helpers, electricians, drivers, secretaries, car cleaners, people to send for errands or to the market, gate keepers, people to wash clothes, typists (especially for very busy people), Graphic designers, Camera men, sales persons, aides, people to drop and pick kids from school, etc. As long as they know you trustable and genuine, you have high chances of getting close to the person who needs your services. If you attend church; you are step closer to great people than you think. All you need is for them to know you exist, you can be trusted, and you have hands-on skill set.

Theme: God waits patiently for sinners to repent

Here is a story that complements that of Zacchaeus in today’s Gospel. A lawyer with a well-earned reputation for arrogance and ruthlessness was married and he had one daughter. But this lawyer’s workaholic lifestyle left little time for his family and he further jeopardized his home life by doing whatever came to his mind. One evening, this lawyer walked into a Mall where a robbery was in progress. He was shot twice and critically wounded. When he regained consciousness, he had amnesia and was paralyzed. Slowly and with great effort, the lawyer was rehabilitated, not only physically and emotionally, but spiritually. As he gained a sense of himself, he became aware of the damage he had caused to his family, his clients and himself.

Theme: What is your perspective of life?

Christians often ask why God does not speak to them, as he is believed to have done in former days. When I hear such questions, it always makes me think of the people of the Israelites who often asked how it could be that God often showed himself to people in the olden days while nowadays nobody ever sees him. The answer is simple and here it is, ‘Nowadays there is no longer anybody who can bow low enough’. We need to keep in mind that the human psyche is by nature religious and to explore this idea in depth we have to put our finger on the prayer-pulse of human beings much in the same way that the Jesus does today in his parable of two men at prayer. One man approached God humbly. Aware of no one else except God, he prayed simply, quietly. So clear was his perception of the all-holy and wholly other God that his own sinfulness was revealed, and in the clarity of that moment he prayed for mercy. As always, when the sacred texts are read, we have to make choices. Will I pray in truth before God like the tax collector or will I preen before God and others and come away empty from the encounter?

Missionary Church, Witness of Mercy

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, which the Church is celebrating, casts a distinct light on World Mission Sunday 2016: it invites us to consider the missio ad gentes as a great, immense work of mercy, both spiritual and material. On this World Mission Sunday, all of us are invited to "go out" as missionary disciples, each generously offering their talents, creativity, wisdom and experience in order to bring the message of God’s tenderness and compassion to the entire human family. By virtue of the missionary mandate, the Church cares for those who do not know the Gospel, because she wants everyone to be saved and to experience the Lord’s love. She “is commissioned to announce the mercy of God, the beating heart of the Gospel” (Misericordiae Vultus, 12) and to proclaim mercy in every corner of the world, reaching every person, young or old.

Theme: Stand in prayer and the Lord will bless you

We are what we think. A glance at today’s scripture, both Moses and the widow provide us with vivid illustrations of the quality of prayer which believers are to cultivate. From Second Timothy, there is another theme at work: ‘all Scripture is inspired of God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, correction and training in holiness’. In the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation, Dei Verbum, Vatican II agreed that the books of Scripture are inspired and normative in that they teach firmly, faithfully and without error that truth which God communicated through the Sacred Word for the sake of our salvation.

Theme: Faith cleanses

To prevent prejudice, people who use politically correct language have attempted to eradicate potentially offensive terms, with mixed results regarding the value and application of these terms. With a little imagination, we can even envisage some of these notions of political correctness into the ancient Middle East world to see how the persons featured in today’s readings might have been regarded. Most of the peoples of Israel and Judah would have regarded Naaman, who was a Syrian, as outside the pale of God’s concern. Not only was he a foreigner; he also suffered from leprosy. His disease signified physical and moral imperfection to those who interpreted suffering as a consequence of sin. Considering these factors, the Israelites would not have found it politically correct for Elisha the wonders of God’s favor to a foreigner. By the same token, as is revealed in the rest of Naaman’s story, he initially regarded having to wash in the Jordan rather than in the rivers of Syria Tigris/Abana and the Euphrates/Pharphar as quite politically offensive and incorrect. Nevertheless, God, who is not bound by any human convention decided to include a foreigner, a soldier, a leper in the divine scheme of salvation. Elisha’s behavior, at God’s direction, anticipated that of Jesus, who seemed determined to ignore the artificial barriers that separated people.
