From the desk of the Parish Priest...

Dear Parishioners,

As we begin a new month, we have before us, many challenges and dreams to realize.  As Christians, we have a few Celebrations each month which are unique in nature, which affect our life of faith.  Above all these events invite us for reflection and introspection as a result we deepen our faith and become more human.

Month of October is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary. This devotion is part and parcel of our Christian faith.  Rosary has brought innumerable blessings to our family.  Blessings in the form of peace, joy, health, happiness, forgiveness, re-union with family members.  The person behind this Blessings is our heavenly Mother. It is she who protects our family.  There is no family which recite Rosary has lost hope in life.  We all are happy that we have our heavenly Mother to intercede for us.  Let us then Recite the daily Rosary and be her true children.

We are also celebrating one more important event namely Mission Sunday.  The Church reminds us the responsibility to preach the Gospel of Christ Jesus. In the Gospel of St. Mathew Jesus tells his Apostles “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you and remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age”. (Mt.28/19-20). St. Paul in his letter to the Corinthians tells ”If I proclaim the Gospel, this gives me no ground for boasting.  For an obligation is laid on me, and woe to me if I do not proclaim the Gospel.”(1Cor.9/16).  Today we are called to ask what is my contribution to the mission of the Church.  By Baptism I have the mandate from Christ to preach the Gospel.  How shall I do it.  It is very simple.  First let me preach the Gospel to myself.  Having experienced the transforming power of the Word of God, I will be a light for the Gospel wherever I am.  The area where I can bring the good news is my family, work place etc.  If everyone of us where to take the Words of Christ seriously, I am sure the Gospel of Christ will spread like wild fire.  It is sad to note that many times we are an obstacle to the Gospel of Christ.

As parishioners of Milagres let us burn with love for Christ and His Gospel.  Let us make a sincere effort to read and live the Good News.  May the Lord Jesus fill us with his spirit in our effort to be the messenger of Good News.


   

Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

Colossians 3:12-14
