From the desk of the Parish Priest...

Dear Parishioners,

Peace and joy of the Risen Lord be with you all. As we celebrate the Easter, we are once again reminded of the great acts of God’s love for our salvation. Resurrection of Christ is the foundation of our faith. St. Paul tells “If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins” (1Cor:15/17). Risen Lord concurred sin & death, and gave us eternal life. This is the greatest victory which transformed humanity from the slavery of sin to the freedom of the children of God. St. Paul again and again refers to the Resurrection of Christ. “Where, O death is your victory? Where, O death is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law” (1Cor:15/55-56)

Resurrection of Christ destroyed the walls of division between God & man. Jesus through his ministry went on building bridges between God & man, Jews & Gentiles, saints & sinners, man & women and established the kingdom of God. His resurrection transcends above all barriers making us his children. As St. Paul says “There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus.”(Gal: 3/28).

Holy Father Pope Francis while returning from Juarez in Maxico to Rome spoke about many issues related to the society and the world. In his interview to the media he said “A person, who thinks only about building walls and not building bridges, is not a Christian”. The celebration of Easter is an invitation to break the walls of selfishness, anger, pride and build the bridges of love, forgiveness, peace and joy in our family,  neighbourhood, and at our workplace.

The first Christian community born after the Resurrection of Christ, is a community of love, sharing & caring, a community motivated by the Risen Saviour   to break down the man made walls and build the Kingdom of God. Let the celebration of Easter help each one to build bridges wherever we live, thus to witness the transforming power of the Risen Lord.
