First Reading – 1 Peter 4:7-13 1 June 2018

I personally feel this is a very powerful reading, so please read and meditate on God’s word and I am sure you will surely have a message from God which would encourage you and make you a better person with a purpose in life.

1 June, 2018 – Saint Justin Martyr
First reading 1 Peter 4:7-13 ©
Each of you has received a special grace
Everything will soon come to an end, so, to pray better, keep a calm and sober mind. Above all, never let your love for each other grow insincere, since love covers over many a sin. Welcome each other into your houses without grumbling. Each one of you has received a special grace, so, like good stewards responsible for all these different graces of God, put yourselves at the service of others. If you are a speaker, speak in words which seem to come from God; if you are a helper, help as though every action was done at God’s orders; so that in everything God may receive the glory, through Jesus Christ, since to him alone belong all glory and power for ever and ever. Amen.
My dear people, you must not think it unaccountable that you should be tested by fire. There is nothing extraordinary in what has happened to you. If you can have some share in the sufferings of Christ, be glad, because you will enjoy a much greater gladness when his glory is revealed.

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.

You Raise Me Up sung by Florence D’Costa

At my good friend, Naomi Heiden’s funeral which was today, the hymn YOU RAISE ME UP was sung by the Assistant priest of St Anthony’s Church, Noble Park, Vic. He played the guitar and sang. I felt quite stirred and hence, I am singing this song now.

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.

Lights in this world of darkness by Florence D’Costa

Christ has commanded us to love God with our whole being and to love our neighbour like ourselves. This is not a request but a commandment. So let us reach out to people and to Christ to them. Sing-a-long with me – Christ be our light.

Waiting… for the arrival of Baby Jesus by Florence D’Costa

Image result for Pictures of Advent 1

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…..
