Reaching out to Catholic/Christians Individuals/Families

The Catholic Mass (1) by Florence D’Costa

The Mass is the pinnacle of prayer.  Mass is a Celebration where we celebrate Christ.   Christ Jesus died only once on Calvary.  At every Mass we go into time and we are present at Calvary.  We are there when Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ was betrayed, tormented, tortured and crucified.  He died for you and for me.  He died for the whole world and for all people.  If we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, then Salvation is ours for free.  The Mass is a powerful weapon against Satan and his wiles.    The whole of heaven is present during Mass with all the angels and saints.  At Mass, there are readings and the gospel – The Liturgy of the Word.  We have the prayers of the faithful.  At the Offertory, the priest offers the whole congregation to God – as we are, including our sinfulness.  Liturgy of the Eucharist – When we receive Jesus Christ in Holy Communion, God, the Father, blesses us and a lot of graces is given to us so that we can continue to live for Christ and for what He stands for.  At Holy Communion, we receive Jesus Christ Himself.  Let us pray that Christ whom we receive in Holy Communion will make us a new creation and will make us more and more like Him.  I will continue to write about the Mass as and when I feel prompted by the Holy Spirit.

Amazing Grace sung by Florence D’Costa

With the Holy Week approaching, I felt that it was good to say to ourselves that it was necessary for us to have Jesus come down and die for us, so that we could obtain Salvation and New Life and be saved from eternal damnation.

Lent by Florence D’Costa

During this period of Lent, let us be more inward looking as we journey with Jesus towards the Cross and Calvary. Let us pray to Christ to help us become better people so that we can help others to journey with Christ.  I will surely do another video soon.

This is a happy time for all Christians.  It is a time when we go out of our way to spend money and time seaching for gifts that we could buy for our loved ones and friends. Well, now we are waiting for the arrival of Baby Jesus who is the Saviour of the W0rld.

During the First Week of Advent, let us spend some quiet time and meditate deeply on the coming of Baby Jesus.  What does the coming of Jesus really mean to us.  I will give you an exercise.  Take a pen and a note book and write down as to what you are expecting during this Advent Season – Spiritual Gifts – Material Gifts – Emotional Gifts.  What type of gifts are we expecting?  What type of gifts do we need?  How do we think Jesus is going to help us?  What Gift are we going to give to Baby Jesus this Christmas.  What gifts are we going to give our family and friends.  Maybe our attitude needs to change for the better?  Let us think and have some quiet time…..

Traditional Marriage between A Catholic Man and a Catholic Woman by Florence D’Costa

When a Catholic Man and a Catholic Woman who really and truly love each other, get married in a Catholic Church by a Catholic priest in the Presence of God, that is the best thing that could happen. This couple should make every effort to continue to stay in love for the rest of their lives. They should pray daily and make God their Number One ……

When things in life become unbelievably difficult by Florence D’Costa

When things get difficult in our lives, we want to give up.  It could be loss of a job, sickness, when we feel betrayed by government, friends, employers – even when we feel betrayed by God, we must remember that God is carrying us – that whatever bad that is happening in our lives – God never leaves us.  It is important to remember that God is preparing us for something important.  Now, we are in a hopeless situation or situations but let us look further and beyond at the good things that is coming our way.  Does it rain all the time? No, the sun must come out.  Remember when Daniel was thrown into the Den of hungry lions, he was not devoured because he was protected by an angel.  So now that things have gone very sour in Victoria, let us remember that angels are protecting us and that GOD NEVER FAILS.  Let us Catholics and Christians and all people who believe in the power of a loving Creator, believe that God is working and let us wait patiently for Him to show His hand.  We are covered with His Blood and we are His Favoured people.  Let us unite in prayer and in love and wait for God’s loving response.  GOD ALWAYS DOES ANSWER. It is important for us to believe and to have eyes on Him.  Have faith my dear people.  Jesus Christ Never Fails!  We believe is. Living God – in a God of Life and He will breath life into our lives.  Christ died, but He rose again.  We might think there is no hope, but there is. WAIT PATIENTLY WITH FATH, HOPE AND LOVE! FOR MIRACLES TO HAPPEN.

Colossians 3:12 by Florence D’Costa

This verse, I find very interesting.  Paul was in prison when he wrote to the Colossians.  So, what does Paul say here.  He addresses them as ‘God’s Chosen People’.  To belong to someone is very special.  It is a very special feeling.  And to belong to God is really awesome and especially to have the knowledge that God has hand picked and chosen them.  He further calls them ‘holy and dearly loved.’  When we are called ‘holy and dearly loved’ it gives us a feeling of being very close to God.  What is Paul telling them to do.  He is specifically telling them to clothe themselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.  These qualities belonged to Jesus Christ.  Because Christ was compassionate, he always healed the sick, made the blind to see, fed the multitude, raised the dead to life etc….  He was God and yet he was humble.  He did not strut around in grand clothes.  He was God and yet he emptied himself of all his glory and was born as man in this world.  Philippians 2:7  but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Jesus Christ humbled himself by being born was a mere creature.  Jesus Christ was kind to children who had no status in those days.  He would gather them and he would show kindness and he would speak with them.  Matthew 11:29 – Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
Matthew 18:26-27  26 “At this the servant fell on his knees before him. ‘Be patient with me,’ he begged, ‘and I will pay back everything.’ 27 The servant’s master took pity on him, cancelled the debt and let him go.  Here we see that Christ was patient and he forgave….  So my dear brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ is very patient and gentle with us.  So Paul is requesting us to be like Christ.  So, let us try our best to be Christlike.
