August 2015 Bulletin

 

“Mary's assumption is an event that concerns us because; every human being is destined to die. But death is not the last word. It is the passage to the eternal happiness in store for

those who toil for truth and justice and do their utmost to follow Christ" ~St John Paul II.

 

At baptism, we became members of the Body of Christ: Church. Through baptism, we participate in the sacramental life of the church and share the mission of Christ. We are meant to be the living sign of Christ's presence. The gifts of the H. Spirit are given to us at Sacrament of Confirmation, to strengthen us for leading a meaningful life. When we recognize the Holy Spirit in our lives,  It will inspire us to do many wonderful things, like works of charity and mercy; feeding the needy, sharing knowledge, forgiving those who hurt us and to be patient with others...

 

Prayer doesn't always change our situation, but prayer will change us always!

 

With loving regards,   

 

Fr. Mathew Pothalil V.C.
