God has blessed us so that we may pass on that blessing to others.


Thursday of the 21st Week in Ordinary Time
August 31, 2017

Today’s Readings:

1 Thessalonians 3:7-13
Ps 90:3-5a, 12-14, 17
Matthew 24:42-51
USCCB Podcast of the Readings:

God has blessed us to bless others

“Who, then, is the faithful and prudent servant,
whom the master has put in charge of his household
to distribute to them their food at the proper time?
Blessed is that servant whom his master on his arrival finds doing so.
Amen, I say to you, he will put him in charge of all his property.

In today’s readings, we see God’s blessings to his children and expects to pass on these blessings to others and generations to come.  God is the source of all blessings whether man believes it or not but very purpose of Mans existence is a blessing to one self and to others.  God has commissioned every human being with a specific task or blessing or talents and God wants man to master in those tasks and use those talents or blessings for others. When God blesses a person, he fills that person to the full and overflows the grace so that that grace may be used for others for the glory of God.

This Concept is very difficult to understand unless we are in full of love and faith in God. Man thinks the blessings are self-achieved and stores these good things for his future and miss uses these talents for selfish and evil desires. Every person is unique and has been given a specific task to achieve which no one else can achieve on his behalf. He is called to full fill this task and be a minister to others.  A person who recognises his call and responds to this call, reaps hundred-fold harvest and becomes a great blessing on this earth to others and forms a ministry of God’s love.  But if the same person responds to his call and stores the blessing for himself and boasts his blessings as his own efforts and miss uses them for evil and selfish desires, God terminates him and passes on his blessings to a prudent and humble person. Jesus wants to reach out to the Whole World through us but if we hold on the love of God to our self and do not pass on this love to others, we delay the second coming of Jesus on this Earth. We delay the Salvation to others and instead of becoming blessing we become a curse to others by blocking their blessing and salvation.   In today’s World, we see this kind of people in great quantity, a rat race to store and gather has been going on for years but no one takes anything at his death because he does not take these very blessings from the hands of God and takes the credit of himself.

The Word of God says these kinds of people cannot enjoy the presence of God and remain restless after their earthly death. For people who became blessing to others, God will inherit his property, to be in his presence for ever and ever.  Let us be a blessing to ourselves and to others. Let us store what we require for our need and not for greed. Some people live for themselves without harming others though they have many talents which can be used for others. This is again a very dangerous situation because they delay a good work in others’ lives and others live in darkness due to our unwillingness to help them and show them the love of God through our talents and blessings.







God’s Words are live, active and Working those who follow them.


Wednesday of the 21st Week in Ordinary Time
August 30, 2017

Today’s Readings:

1 Thessalonians 2:9-13
Ps 139: (1) 7-12
Matthew 23:27-32
USCCB Podcast of the Readings:

Whoever keeps the word of Christ,
the love of God is truly perfected in him. ( 1 John 2:5)

Today’s readings talk about Hypocrisy and Obedience. Hypocrisy is pretence or acting as virtuous or good.  In today’s World, this behaviour is very common and followed by majority of people.  An artificial smile, coded good words, artificial appreciation and acting as good and showing off so on are the signs of hypocrisy.  The real obedient people who follow the Word of God, do it in action and this act may not be appreciated or make us not to smile and may face persecutions and even death.  The reward of obedience to the Word of God is peace and joy within ourselves and this joy we get from the Working of the Holy Spirit. This Working of the Holy Spirit builds a ministry with in the Community due to our obedience of the Word of God.

Why  do People pretend that they are obedient when they are not ? St. Paul in his letter to the Thessalonians gives the answer :  you received it not as the word of men, but as it truly is, the word of God, which is now at work in you who believe.

When people receive the Word of God as Words of men , they compare God to man and thus the God’s value has been under estimated and the essence of God’s Word which is truth and Spirit has been misinterpreted to the selfishness of false beliefs. This state of belief is very dangerous because the person assumes he is right in his belief where as he or she is completely on the opposite side i.e. disbelief or disobedience. This is one kind of Spiritual sickness which can come to people who are intelligent, paper tigers and Walking Bibles.  This sickness is contagious and pass on from one generation to the next because of its elite kind of nature. These elite Christians focus on the word of God and it’s flaws and obligations and miss the point of obedience. The Catholic church balances the spirituality with Acts of mercy a, works of charity with sacraments which helps to overcome the self-righteousness and disobedience or hypocrisy. The Hypocrites are militants and violent people where the word of God is not working in their life. When they are exposed of their hypocrisy they show their true self of violence and murder the Prophets or righteous people to protect their Hypocrisy.  This is a evil generation which Jesus talking about in the Gospel. There are plenty in our churches and society today. There is a need to purify these people with the fire of the Holy Spirit and Jesus is that fire who will send his spirit of love. This fire will burn every spirit of Hypocrisy and put a spirit of obedience to hear and follow the word of God to be perfect to the love of God .




God’s Word Challenges us to follow Jesus in Words and action.


August 28

Memorial of Saint Augustine, Bishop and Doctor of the Church
Lectionary: 425

Reading 1  :   1 THES 1:1-5, 8B-10
Gospel : MT 23:13-22

Raedings :http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings/082817.cfm

Readings Audio : http://ccc.usccb.org/cccradio/NABPodcasts/17_08_28.mp3
For our Gospel did not come to you in word alone,
but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with much conviction.

St. Paul preached the Gospel in very spectacular way. He taught the Word of God like a teacher with many references from Old testament and fulfilled promises in the New Testament. He also spoke the word of God with much power and boldness and conviction. He spoke and taught the Gospel with the power of the Holy Spirit. He lived the Gospel. He formed the Churches of love.

St. Paul was a zealous Pharisee but converted to Christianity in a very miraculous way.  In the gospel reading Jesus exposes the hypocrisy of Pharisees and Scribes.  The Pharisees only taught the Word of God but there was no power in the teaching, there was no Signs and wonders, there was no inspiration of the Holy Spirit and there was no lived love or practice. Moreover, the word of God was manipulated and misinterpreted for their own benefits. In short, the Word of God had lost its true values.

St. Augustine was the great Scholar in the early church and a contemporary theologian who taught on original Sin and the grace of Baptism. St. Augustine also was miraculously converted to Christianity and became great theologian and philosopher. Most of St. Augustine’s teachings are still the core in the Catholic and Protestant churches. St. Augustine embraced celibacy and became a great priest and Bishop for the love of God, after a scandalous living.

Let us pray for the unity through intercessions of Paul and St. Augustine who were great Scholars in words, writings and deeds. The light of the Gospel may dispel every darkness of misinterpretation and self-motivated ideas on the Word of God. The Holy Spirit may convict every protector of the Word of God and teachings of Church in the true light of the Spirit.

We as parents or teachers of the Word of God must analyse our approach towards our family and Community. Are we like St. Paul and St. Augustine with full of zeal who risked their life for the love of God or like those Pharisees who lived a selfish life by manipulating the Word of God in our daily lived life. Jesus hated hypocrites but he loved the sinners. Today let us acknowledge ourselves as sinners and fallen short of the glory of God. Jesus will receive us with great joy in our present time and time to come but for every hypocrite Jesus will rebuke to eternal absence of God.



The World can be ruled only through the Wisdom of God


21st Sunday in Ordinary Time
August 27, 2017

Isaiah 22:19-23
Ps 138:1-3, 6, 8
Romans 11:33-36
Matthew 16:13-20
USCCB Podcast of the Readings:

The World can be ruled only through the Wisdom of God

“Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah.
For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father.
And so I say to you, you are Peter,
and upon this rock I will build my church,
and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.
I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven.
Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven;
and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

In today’s readings, we see the wisdom of God is manifested to human. Through the Wisdom the human becomes knowledgeable and understanding and discerning to rule and govern the World. Jesus came in to this World to remove us from slavery of Sin and establish a Kingdom of Freedom. Jesus gives his authority or Wisdom to his successor Peter who accessed this authority through faith. If we see Peter’s entire life with Jesus is a testimony of Faith. When man tries to access God or believe in him, God reveals himself to him and makes him like him.

Man, by himself cannot seek God but requires the grace of God to seek him. Grace is like a light or torch which searches the truth. We can obtain this grace through our relationship with God like prayer and listening to the Word of God. Peter did this in his life. He had a close relationship with Jesus and listened attentively and responded in his own understanding.  In return God reveals himself the greatest mystery of this Earth the Christ to Peter. This revelation followed by a Commission and authority. Jesus passes on his authority to Peter and his successors.

Why did Jesus form the Church and not a Political Kingdom? Jesus was the Prince of Peace and not a Political leader. The political and financial institutions are supposed to submit their authority to the Church. The Church has a final say in this World as per today’s Gospel readings. So, is our Church is dominating Church? Jesus Church is a servant Church. Those who submit to the Church of Jesus become the Servants of God and each other.

We see in the medieval period the Church lost its Servant nature and hence there were divisions in the Church. The political powers took over the position of Peter and declared themselves as the Successors of Christ. The Servant King becomes a Political King and hence the passed-on message of Christ diluted or manipulated to the human gain. Today’s readings clearly say whatever is bound by the Word of God in this Earth will be bound in heaven. The institutions or the Political parties which go against the Word of God lose the Wisdom of God and cannot stand against the Evil. This is happening in most of our time. Human education or Knowledge or research how advanced it may be, if it does not contain the Wisdom of God or as per the Word of God , it is foolish and filthy in Spiritual context. If any institution built on the Word of God will remain forever and there will be no forces of Evil can win over these institutions. These institutions are none other than the institutions who care for others, serve others, love others, forgive others and God himself is their Provider and Master.

Today let evaluate our lives. Have we built a relationship with Jesus? Has Jesus revealed himself to us personally?  Have we been Commissioned with a ministry and authority? Are part of any Christian ministry? Are we ministers in our own Churches? Do we contribute to the Church? If our answer is Yes then we are in the Kingdom of Jesus otherwise it is a time to begin our lives with Jesus.



God is for everyone, available everywhere and above all things.


Today’s Readings:

Deuteronomy 10:12-22
Ps 147:12-15, 19-20
Matthew 17:22-27
USCCB Podcast of the Readings:

For the LORD, your God, is the God of gods,
the LORD of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome,
who has no favourites, accepts no bribes;
who executes justice for the orphan and the widow,
and befriends the alien, feeding and clothing him.
So you too must befriend the alien,
for you were once aliens yourselves in the land of Egypt.

God is for everyone, available everywhere and above all things.

The definition of God is plain and simple but the people have made him complicated and superstitious. The definition of God for me is he is everywhere and can be reached at any time or any place or   any circumstances. He is fair to everyone and controls and balances all things. He is the most common element easily available than the earthly elements like Water, Air or Soil.

If we read the readings of today, the writers want to give us a similar message. God in the old testament was a God of loving and compassion who took care of his people and loved the victimised and hopeless. He tells all his followers to do the same. In the Gospel Jesus who was not the Subject either to the Romans or to the temple authorities humbles himself and becomes a foreigner or alien in his own house and pays tax to the temple authorities.

Temple Tax or Census Tax was taken in one of the festivals once in a year when Census was taken by Moses in the old testament. It is half Shekel which is equal lent to two days wages of that time.  Through this action Jesus is giving us an example to pay taxes more than expected to the Temple authorities and even to the governments. This also shows that we must pay the taxes first despite of how it has been used or spent by the authorities. Jesus paid double the portion and thus it gives us an example to pay taxes more than expected by the authorities.

Jesus makes miracle by telling Peter to hook a fish and a Coin comes out of the fish. God can give us from nothing and expects us to give or show mercy to the foreigners or strangers or asylum seekers despite of their caste, creed, colour, language or religion. This kind of God we serve who do not create divisions but unites people together. This kind of ways we follow, though we have freedom and not deserved to be slaves but for the sake of others we act like slaves not to offend our fellow least brother or sister. This is the real Christian Religion. Christianity is a not a group or a Way of life but it is to become God to others by loving, serving and just being good to others despite their resistance or evil action against us.  This message is taught to us by Jesus and this is the reason we call our self Christians.

If we think we lose our lives for others and fear failure or death , God is the one who is above all things who provides, heals, protects, balances and takes care of his Children who want to be God to others. Let us be God to others and follow the footsteps of Jesus which resemble God’s ways in this World.





Moving by Faith and love of Jesus will lead us to Paradise.



August 12, 2017

Saturday of the Eighteenth Week in Ordinary Time
Lectionary: 412

Today’s Readings:



Moving by Faith and love of Jesus can lead us to Paradise.

Today’s readings talk about the faith and love of God. It is very important to listen to God’s words and obey them by loving our neighbours.  Moses tells this to all Israelites and Jesus tells it to his disciples. Believing in God’s Words is faith. God’s Words are truth and life. The whole earth was created through the Word of God and Jesus was that Word which became flesh. When we believe in Jesus, we believe in the Word of God. The entire Earth and dominions like evil and Prosperity is also in control of Jesus. Why then we suffer in poverty, sickness, troubles of life, afflictions so on. This is because of lack of faith in the Word of God and Jesus.  Jesus is the only God we must believe and surrender our life in to his hands like small Children.  This is the life God wants us to live and teach to our children.

Many Christian Communities are living this kind of life and experience the Paradise on this earth. Many a times people of other Countries try to imitate Christian Countries. In Christian Countries there was love, truth and charity. Other countries tried their level best to imitate the life style but repeatedly failed due to the lack of knowledge of Jesus and passed on Christian traditions. Christianity was practiced in Europe, America, Australia, Canada, so these very Countries are more prosperous in richness, education, discipline, evangelisation. Charity and even  in power. Today all the Countries indirectly bow before these Countries why? Because these Countries practiced Christian values from the generations to generations and the Christian truth the Word of God has ground deep in the traditions. This is the reason though people do not confess Jesus as God or believe in him but practice the Word of God without their knowledge. If we do not renew these traditions with the words of God, the same traditions will lose its essence of Christian values and embrace the Worldly values.  Most of the olden Constitutions and rules were based on the Vales of Jesus but the modern rules are turning against the Christian Values and following the Earthly Scientific values. These very values are not permanent but temporary because the Science cannot give us complete truth but only partial truth which is no truth at all. Moral truths are complete truths and these truths comes from the Word of God or Spirit of God alone.

The Christian Countries are backsliding in stability in Economy and security Why?  The true values are not practiced and taught to the next generation. The love and forgiving has become a fool’s paradise and selfishness and Worldly education has become the religion of life.  Today God is reminding us his Lordship over the Earth and invites us to love and put our trust in him alone because there is no other Lord on this Earth but only him. When we trust Jesus, who is the face of God on this earth, let us put our trust in Jesus and see the things, situations or sicknesses turning in to our favour. Jesus is the good Shepherd who takes care of his Sheep with good health, good food, good place to live and to live with him forever.

The World, flesh and Evil scare us and put fear of death in our heart but they do not have the control of our life, if we trust in Jesus and his Words we can stand still and command these forces to throw themselves in to deep abyss and they will listen to us because the Creator’s Commandments of love are activated through our faith and love. Let us teach our Children how miraculous our God is who provides his children from nothingness of our life and feeds us with good things which we have not toiled or worked for them. So let us enjoy with our Father’s ancestral heritage by faith and forgiveness and make this Earth a Paradise of Faith and love and teach our Children to do the same.

We can live for ever without death by grace of Jesus.

Friday of the 18th Week in Ordinary Time
Memorial of Saint Clare, virgin
August 11, 2017

Today’s Reading:

Deuteronomy 4:32-40
Ps 77:12-16, 21
Matthew 16:24-28
USCCB Podcast of the Readings:

For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it,
but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.

Is it possible to live forever in this World without death? Yes, it is possible through the grace of Jesus. Jesus lived forever through his resurrection. When the followers of Christ believe in Jesus and follow him by Words and deeds, they walk in the spirit and not human instinct. When I was in high school our Biology teacher taught us how to graft the plant in to a superior hybrid plant. I remember grafting a Bougainvillea plant of red colour in to a White colour plant. When the plant grafted in to one single plant, the flowers of those grafted plant turned in to both the colours white and red. This kind of grafting must happen to every follower of Christ. When we unite our crosses in to the Cross of Christ, our life gets united to his life and his life flows in to our veins and we become Divine human beings. These types of people are called Christians, these people do not die but live forever. When we believe in Jesus the life of the Holy Spirit flows in to us and we start walking not as per our human mind but by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. The spirit of Jesus comes and dwells in our heart and guides us in to his ways. The people who walk as per human instinct die like an animal because human life is not everlasting or spiritual but decaying and temporory. These kinds of people live for this World and live for themselves. God created the Earth so that the man may glorify God through the Earth and not to lust at the earthly things. These very earthly things take us away from God, if we do not use them for God’s glory. Walking with spirit or the Word of God is an art and disciplinary decision of ourselves. Many people get this free gift  by transformation experience by God’s mercy and love. This transformation transfers us for a period and gives a foretaste of the Divine Experience. This transformation does not remain long for a long time, if we do not follow the inspiration or live as per the Word of God.  Let us pray to have this Experience and walk in his ways .It is so good , people who have tasted this experience have left the World and followed him throughout their life. This life is much superior and peaceful and heavenly where no worries of this World trouble us but persecution remain but does not matter to the Divine human beings.


Giving is Receiving….


Thursday of the 18th Week of Ordinary Time
Feast of Saint Lawrence
August 10, 2017

Today’s Readings:

2 Corinthians 9:6-10
Ps 112:1-2, 5-9
John 12:24-26
USCCB Podcast of the Readings:

Giving is Receiving

The one who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food
will supply and multiply your seed
and increase the harvest of your righteousness.

The Christian way of life is opposite to the Worldly way of life. If the World says Prosperity, power and Knowledge is the real success, the Christian way of life says love, service and  following the Word of God is the real success of life. This warfare can go on and on and they are opposite to each other and cannot meet at any point of life. A Christian must understand this and the Church must teach this to every new born Christian so that he or she understand the differences in these two goals of life.

Today’s readings and the entire Bible gives the same message again and again. The message of salvation is giving love and service to others. How can we give if we do not receive? If we seek first the kingdom of righteousness, all the rest will follow by themselves. The disbelief of people is, they are ignorant on moral education or the plan of God on this earth. This disbelief has been sowed by the Evil sources like our society, Worldly education, non-believing people or ignorant parents and tempting and foolish friends so on. This disbelief has been passed on from one generation to the other. Every person must understand the real goal of life, beginning with the moral way of life. If we do not study or understand this moral goal or purpose in life, we will not be able to understand the choices of life.

There are many ways or religions who offer many goals or purposes of life. Christianity is one of these ways of life. The teaching of Christian way is not of something new but existed from the time of creation. Bible talks about the love of God and Neighbours from the foundation of the World. In fact, the love of God and Neighbour was the principle of all Law and Commandments of old and new. How can we understand that the Love of God and Neighbours is the right way of life? If we look at our Conscience, there is an inbuilt natural Law infused in our inner being and speaks to every individual despite of his way of life or status of life. If we tally these voice to the commandments of God’s love, they echo the same voice with each other. If any religion has this echo has the portion of God’s life in their religion. Christianity is one of the closest religion where the voice of the Conscience echoes the voice of the Holy Spirit or the teachings of the Church.

When people realise the real way of life, we call this as transformation experience. This experience has been made simple to people in Christian way of life, in an inbuilt formula of believing Jesus who is that Voice of our Conscience and of the Commandment and of the Holy Spirit. When we believe Jesus as the goal of our life, we receive the Holy Spirit who leads us to the real way of truth on this Earth. We can have this experience through the study of the moral Law and the Scriptures but all of them end with Jesus and his way of life. If any person study other ways of life to meet real goal, the very ways end at some point and the search for the real goal continues in various ways and finally end with Jesus. When someone  is in real quest of his goal in life, Jesus comes to that person and reveals himself with a miraculous transformation experience. Jesus way of life is giving and forgiving, when we follow his ways we are taken care of our Worldly needs and we meet the real success of peace of mind the eternal rest upon this earth. Today’s reading talks about that seed which transforms from Carnal to divine being and bears fruit in abundance. This we call the transformation experience. When we listen to the Word of God by loving God and apply them in our daily life by giving and forgiving, we transform from human to divine beings on this earth. This always follows with a ministry or group people attracted towards this person’s life and follow that person’s beliefs or thoughts which has been multiplied in to many seeds. The early Christians were evangelisers of this kind of Spirituality and Christianity transformed all evil ways of life and followed the real echo which resounded from the Church and Scriptures to their own voice of the Conscience. These people convinced and rested upon this Words of eternal life. Many Kingdoms, Constitutions, Education systems, Management Rules were built based on the teachings of Christ. A new light was pierced through the new revelation of Jesus to the World and the entire World saw a new teaching of love and forgiveness. The animalism of hatred and materialism of selfishness was defeated by love and forgiveness.

But today the World is tilting towards its old animalism of heartedness and materialism of selfishness. The many ways of other ways of life and modern educated thinking has corrupted the minds of people and the entire generation backsliding to the stone age era. The Gospels the original voice of God has been dubbed and manipulated to their own material desires and preached for selfish reason and hence the essence of God’s voice is missing. The real love and service has become foolishness and study of the Word of God and prayer has become superstitious. The modern World is in the spell of Witchcraft of pride and materialism and power and prosperity has become the goal of life.

Every Christian must stand on Christian teachings and values and die for Worldly values and dispel the darkness of the Evil and bring our lost brothers and sisters to the real way of life the love and forgiveness. There is no better way of life than loving our ancestral heritage of God’s love and loving our brothers and sisters as per that passed on heritage of God’s love. This shared love of God will multiply our families and friends with love, joy, peace, patience, self-control, and make us meek and humble of heart.


Recollecting the mercy of God and trusting in his mercy for our present & future is Faith


Wednesday of the 18th Week in Ordinary Time
August 9, 2017

Today’s Saint Quote: Saint Teresa B. of the Cross

Today’s Readings:

Numbers 13:1-2,25 — 14:1,26a-29a,34-35
Ps 106:(4a)6-7ab,13-14,21-23
Matthew 15: 21-28
USCCB Podcast of the Readings:

Recollecting the mercy of God and trusting in his mercy for our present & future is  Faith.

O woman, great is your faith!
Let it be done for you as you wish.”
And her daughter was healed from that hour.

We see great faith of a Canaanite Woman and faithless Israelites in the desert. The Woman gets healing instantly and Israelites wander in the desert for another forty years and every single person dies in the Wilderness. Did God award the Woman and punish the grumbling Israelites? Faith is the access of God’s grace, when we are humble, obedient to God’s instructions or Words we can draw his grace from the Ocean of God’s mercy. God’s is constant and abundant and can be accessed by any person in this World without any discrimination. If any person accesses his mercy through faith, the result is his award. It is difficult to access God’s mercy in the difficult situations or realities of our life like Israelites. If we evaluate real situation among the Israelites in the Context of military strength, it is like committing Suicide. But if we recollect the mighty hand of God which saved the Israelites from Egypt with mighty miracles and wonders, then it is a great insult or doubting on God’s mercy or power. By not trusting God, Israelites made God powerless before a human race.

If we see in our daily life we come across many difficulties and sometimes we think we are finished or this is the end of our life, but has it been the end? We have come across these kinds of situations repeatedly and forgotten those great anxieties or Worries. If we walk our life in a self-centred way, we will be walking in centres and reaching nowhere like Israelites but finally die doing nothing and just live like a vegetable for the sake of survival. This is the reason every person in this World must reach to a goal of Chosen land or heaven on this earth. What is this chosen place in our life? When we come out of our self-centred life and reach out to others in love and charity, we reach the heaven on this earth. We cannot do this without the manual of God’s love the Word of God or the Holy Spirit. God’s words or the work of the Holy Spirit are the past events of our life or life of Holy people or the prophesies and the teaching of Prophets and the Church of today. We need to recollect every action of the Holy Spirit in our life and in the life of the whole Church past, present and future and exercise these recollected assurances that the same can happen in our present activity. This process is called Faith and this Faith in God’s mercy produces love. We see many festivals, Sabbath-Sundays, Sacraments, Retreats, Scriptures studies, theology, Church, Priesthood are the reminders of God’s mercy in our life. These reminders revive God’s love in our hearts so that through this love we may love others.  The Canaanite woman acknowledged Jesus as the Son of David and Lord the Messiah and faith emerged through this affirmation.  Israelites did not recollect the Wonders of God and trusted in their self-strength and misery by grumbling   against God and doubting on his grace and mercy. The fear, doubt, grumbling, guilt and worrying on the misery is opposite to Faith. This kind of attitude results in misery and despair in our life. God does not punish but we refuse to take the help from God’s ocean of mercy and rely on our own understanding to handle the situation, God cannot help us in lack of our faith, hence fall under curse of God’s punishment the state of no grace or favour or living in hell or despair. The absence of God is the self-invited Punishment of God.

Many so called intelligent people do not believe on this but go through practically in this state of life.  Divorce, Alcoholism, Drugs, Jealousy , heartedness, groupism , wrong relationships, idol worship, Satanism , slaves to technology ,  pollution, lack of discipline and lack of respect are the result of not relying on the Wisdom of the Past , the moral Science.


Faith & Humbleness takes us to God face to face to Worship him and love him.


Tuesday of the 18th Week in Ordinary Time
Memorial of Saint Dominic, Priest
August 8, 2017

Today’s Readings:

Numbers 12:1-13
Ps 51:3-7, 12-13
Matthew 14:22-36
USCCB Podcast of the Readings:

“Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.”
He said, “Come.”
Peter got out of the boat and began to walk on the water toward Jesus.
But when he saw how strong the wind was he became frightened;
and, beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!”
Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand and caught him,
and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”
After they got into the boat, the wind died down.
Those who were in the boat did him homage, saying,
“Truly, you are the Son of God.”

Faith & Humbleness takes us to God face to face to Worship him and love him.

Today we see how the meek and faith filled people see God face to face on this Earth. Peter and Moses were the great personalities in the Bible. What made these people great? Did they seek money or possession or education or positions in this World? No these men were of strong faith and humble in heart. For people of faith and humble in heart God reveals his mysteries, in fact he reveals himself to them. For others, he comes as a mystery or in riddles or in a parable or through difficulties of their life. If we are not understanding what is happening to us in our life, immediately we need to come in to our Knees and humble ourselves by trusting him fully in those situations. The disciples, Miriam and Aron failed to understand and came to trouble and sinned against the Lord. But Peter and Moses showed humbleness and faith in God and  recognised him in that difficult situation and there was a transformation of the situation in to their favour. The Latter recognised the Holiness of God and Worshiped him.

Miriam was a great Woman Chosen by God to save Moses as a Child and help him throughout his mission to reach the chosen place. Aron was the other Brother of Moses to help him in his mission. The whole Family of Moses, God chooses to serve him. In their relationship with God, Miriam compares her faith with Moses and questions God’s Wisdom. This is Spiritual pride and normally comes to people who grow in their adult stage of spirituality. Miriam was struck or cleansed with White Leprosy which was a sign of uncleanliness and spiritual childishness and cured her at Moses intercession. We see many a time spiritual people struck with various troubles in their life and this is one of the reason God wants to make them realise that there is more faith and humbleness required in their life to see God face to face. This is process of Spiritual Cleansing or purging out all the evil from our hearts so that we can see him as he is. If we do not realise the trouble in our life , the troubles increase day by day and God invites us through these situations to understand him and believe in him with Courage and Humble heart. Faith and Humbleness is must and must in a spiritual journey to encounter God and intercede to him.  These kind of intercessors God wants in today’s World. Moses and Peter were great intercessors who made mighty miracles through their intercessions because they had God’s heart and whatever they interceded was from God himself.

Let us become intercessors like Moses and Peter and do mighty miracles in the name of our Lord. All kind of doubts, living in fear, complaining, Criticizing, giving names, Gossiping and comparing ourselves superior to others bring trouble and difficulties in our life.   Let us overcome all these things by trusting our Lord, as our Lord and Master of our life and he will take care of us as his Children and grant us our hearts desire and make us mighty people of Faith like Moses and Peter.
