My dear Parishioners & Friends!

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the greetings, gifts, prayers and wishes on the occasion of my birthday. I value and treasure them in my heart.

LENT: With Ash Wednesday on the 26th of February, we begin our Lent this year. During Lent we take good resolutions to improve our lives. Try to pray a little more than usual. The greatest prayer we can offer is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. So I would suggest that you attend some extra masses on week days when you have no obligation to attend. That would show your goodwill. So, I wish everyone a holy and fruitful observance of Lent.

With Prayers & Blessings!

Fr. Thomas P Joseph



Church Regulations Regarding Fast and Abstinence

Abstinence from meat (beast or fowl) is to be observed by all Catholics fourteen years old and older on Ash Wednesday and on all the Fridays of Lent. This obligation prohibits the eating of meat, but not eggs, milk products, or condiments of any kind, even though made from animal fat.

Fasting means limiting oneself to one full meal on a given fast day. Catholics who are eighteen years of age but not yet fifty-nine are obliged to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. On fast days, two additional smaller meals are permitted if necessary to maintain strength. However, the two smaller meals together may not equal one full meal. Moreover, eating solid foods between meals on fast days is not permitted.

 

With Prayers & Blessings!

“Be Perfect”

These words challenge all of us, as the Lord’s disciples….Imitating the holiness and perfection of God might seem an unattainable goal….Yet we must never forget that without the Holy Spirit our efforts are in vain! Christian holiness is not first and foremost our own work, but the fruit of docility--willed and cultivated—to the Spirit of God thrice holy.

In the Gospel, Jesus speaks to us of holiness, and explains to us the new law, his law. He does this by contrasting the imperfect justice of the scribes and Pharisees with the higher justice of the kingdom of God. The first contrast of today’s passage refers to revenge. You have heard that it was said, “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.” But I say to you…if anyone should strike you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. We are required not only to avoid repaying others the evil they have done to us, but also to seek generously to do good to them. The second contrast refers to our enemies: You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.” But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. Jesus asks those who would follow him to love those who do not deserve it, without expecting anything in return, and in this way to fill the emptiness present in human hearts, relationships, families, communities and in the entire world…

Jesus did not come to teach us good manners, how to behave well at the table! To do that, he would not have had to come down from heaven and die on the cross. Christ came to save us, to show us the way, the only way out of the quicksand of sin, and this way of holiness is mercy, that mercy which he has shown, and daily continues to show, to us. To be a saint is not a luxury. It is necessary for the salvation of the world. This is what the Lord is asking of us.
