Hope you are all doing well. My prayers for you all that you may have good health of mind and body and that you may be blessed abundantly by the Almighty.
While we enjoy the calmness of the mother nature in our area, we need to think of those affected by the wrath and uproar of the nature in some parts of our country. There are people who have lost their homes, who have lost their loved ones, who have lost their peace of mind, who have lost their serenity of heart. These are the people whom we have to think about and pray for. More than the material helps we can provide, our prayers will have added consolation to all who suffer any kind of loss.
I would like to appreciate you all for the generosity you showed during the special second collection for the victims of the hurricanes. Some of you even came to me before mass and asked me if there was going to be a second collection. That showed your love and concern for the people who are in need. God bless you for your generosity and kind heart. Keep up the same spirit of love and brotherhood.
I would like to thank you for your prayers during my visit to India. The wedding was good and we enjoyed the ceremony. Thank you also for your prayers for my niece who got married. I hope your prayers will go a long way with the couple in their married life. Kindly continue to pray for them.
My return to my second home was interesting. There was a lady sitting next to me with some symptoms of cold and few more ailments. She was very generous. Her generosity offered me the cold and related gifts of headache, fever, sore throat and so on. So, I had to land with all these generous gifts which I don’t want to share with anybody. So, try to stay away from me whenever you see me. Even if you don’t shake hands with me or no hugs, I understand that you love me and I love you all too. Let our love be at a distance, at least for the time being.
I do not have any story this week. From next week, you will have one. Keep well and enjoy the season. God bless.
Yours sincerely in Christ Jesus,
