Have you ever thought why when a priest or a religious makes a mistake it carries a lot of discussion and news value?
I, a religious personally think it is not because of a negative attitude towards us rather they (people) expected something better and of higher value from us, and we have failed to grow up to the expectation. In some instances we have behaved worse, that it can never be justified.
Can a just man be called mercyful, if so what is Mercy?
When one acts according to convince one has no right to speak about the conviction…
Convictions can often demand much from our lives, often we may be the odd one out because of our conviction. Yet you need to hold on to it because it is your faith that you are right.
ശിഷ്യൻ: അറിവും ബോധോദയവും തമ്മിലുള്ള വ്യത്യാസമെന്താണ്?
ഗുരു: ആറിവുണ്ടാകുമ്പോൾ നീ വിളക്കു കൊണ്ട് വഴി കാണിച്ചു കൊടുക്കുന്നു. ബോധോദയം ലഭിക്കുമ്പോൾ നീ തന്നെ വിളക്കായി മാറുന്നു.
How will you define a leader?
In the light of things that happened today, especially during the mansoon matches @KJC (deatils will come soon) I feel like defining a leader as:
A person who has a vision for the people who are under his care and who is able to transform this vision into a mission through various activities.
May be better framed in negation, leader is a person who is not willing to act to make happy the majority/minority of the members of the group though knowing their demands are wrong and not worth of fighting for.
Pray that may our political, social and religious leaders may understand this great truth…
Punch: Justification can’t transform evil into good…
It is a belief that even the most difficult moments of my life is known to God and He has arranged it for my goodness.
Faith is like an ‘Open Wifi’ and the speciality is it is available always and everywhere. However, as the devices need to be connected to the wifi to access, we too need to connect to the faith to access it.
The question is are you connected?
The people who share are those who don’t have much to keep aside…
Often the feeling that takes me over these days of lent can better expressed in the words of St. Paul.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. (Rom. 7: 15) (NIV)
Lord Help me find Meaning in what I do!
Technically speaking we have a long summer holidays in KJC. However, one need to understand the term holidays in a very Salesian way. I am told in Salesian circles holidays also would mean change of occupation. It is very true in my case at least, for this summer during my holidays I and Br. Santhosh are trying to update the data in our province website. Though quite challenging, enjoying it for now.
It is the law of the nature that we are only able to give what we have. Just reflecting about life, once can see what one has. If others feel positive in my presence, naturally it means I am filled with positive energy; in the same way, if others are affected negatively in my presence it naturally mean I am filled with negative energy.
The question is what do I radiate in my life?
Age matters …it matters a lot. These days I had an opportunity to attend a class taken by an aged professor. It was quite…(I don’t know what to say). However, some of the common characters that I have noticed in his lectures were:
- Undue Glorification of the Past
- Extreme criticism/negativity to the present world and its generation
- An objective judgment on anything that happened (generalizing things)
- An over self confidence (about himself and about his times and methods)
- A feeling of undue authority over the Subject, and so on
However, the thought that stuck me all these while was about the character presented in the first part of the movie, oru muthassi gadha, may be the second part of the movie can draw some light into the situations we discussed above.
Yet, I would like to make clear I am in no way interested in making a judgment on his person or on his believes. Neither I will be interested in generalizing what I said above.
Tomorrow will never come…until I start today. It is very true of my blogging too. The previous months were really busy and filled with many activities especially as the first years were organizing the Don Bosco Month at KJC. However, days that passed were of learning experience. I shall mention some of those in the coming days. Though it’s quite late the New Year has its newness around…let us keep it.
Often we find mistakes with ourselves and that is the way we are thought to be humble. But is the correct way of doing thing?
It’s not about accepting the mistake that we commit, but about the unnecessary guilt that we place in ourselves in comparison with others and other situations.
I feel all I have to do today is be myself….because I am more than good enough.
…God told me so!
Let me ask you…
Do You Pray? and What do you pray for?
Prayer is often understood as a presentation of list of requirements and things required to God.
So the question, When do pray is also quite relevant?
Often we pray when we are in trouble and when we have issues which we feel can’t be managed by us alone…
Said all these… I feel
Prayer is just any of above said rather…
Prayer is a request made to God for a state of mind to accept His will in our life…whatever it may be…
It made a difference in my life…try it out
