Mission accomplished

 The mission of Jesus is accomplished and Christ is risen and free to ascend to the Father after a span of forty days. With that the work of the Holy Spirit begins: to remind, help to understand better all that had been and go ahead with courage and gusto to the ends of the world. Christ made the Father known to the disciples and the people of His time...

We, in our days need to make known the resurrected Jesus by our exemplary lives.

Month of May is dedicated to Mary, the Mother of Jesus.

The 12th of May is MOTHER’S DAY



Every mother is unique and exceptional and of immeasurable value.

However in our times, there are m.o.t.h.e.r.s   who are different. They beget children, discard, sell, torture even pathetically abandon. There are yet o.t.h.e.r.s longing and waiting for the gift of a child.

While we praise God for the motherly Mothers

We need to pray for the others who are perhaps forced by circumstances, compelled to act much against their wish.  In reality their numbers are not small; neither is the number of babes/ children subjected to undeserving ends.

Let mother Mary, be the model, bless and mother all mothers of our times.
