From the desk of the Parish Priest...

Dear Parishioners,

First of all let me wish each one  of you a very Happy Christmas. May the Celebration of the Birth of Christ fill us with peace, joy and happiness all through the New Year 2017.

Birth of Christ has brought innumerable spiritual gifts to the humanity.  Each year as we approach the Holy Season of Christmas, we are once again invited to revisit the true spirit of Christmas in the light of the Word of God.

Respect for Human life is the Theme of this Christmas issue.  God is life and he has given a share in his very life, when he created man and woman in his own image and likeness, says the Book of Genesis.  Life includes both physical and spiritual life.  As human beings we are only custodians of human life.  God respects Human life and we are called to respect Human life in any form.

Modern world considers only the utility part of human life.  Man is not a machine in the long chain of production.  If human life has no utility value, that is considered as burden.  This is a dangerous thinking. Having selfishness as its root, as believers we are called to fight against such thinking.  Life is to be respected from womb to the tomb.  Life  cannot be valued from its quality, but its very origin.  Life is created for eternity,  even an handicapped person, has his contribution in the plan of God.  St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta is the best example for humanity as she considered all human life is precious and it is to be treated with dignity.  

As we celebrate Christmas this year, let us look at the heart of Jesus.  How he treated the most neglected people of the Society.   He loved and respect them.  Let us draw inspiration from him, to love and respect life.  Let us respect our very own life and others and build a community which respects human life.  This is the mission of Christ and our mission.
