Reaching out to Catholic/Christians Individuals/Families

Our Mission today – Make others happy!

I went for Mass this morning and the homily that Fr Martin did give was very interesting.  He touched on the subject about concentrating on making others happy.  He said, let us not worry too much about making ourselves happy.

So I decided to share this video.  I would like to add here that it is important for us always to have a smile that we could share for it does not cost us to SMILE at others.  To give someone a smile, give them a kind and encouraging word, an embrace if they need one would definitely not cost us anything.  It is FREE TO GIVE and if we could make others happy – Why not!  My experience is that when I make others happy, then it surely proves that I am happy and then because I am happy, I could share that happiness with others.  We should be there for others and it is important for us to let them know that we will always be there for them.

Another important point – if we are there for others, then you can be sure that they will be there for you and even if they are not or unable to be there for us, it still does not matter.  What matters is THAT WE ARE THERE FOR OTHERS and that their happiness  MATTERS TO US.

So, let this MISSION be ours today – TO MAKE ANOTHER HUMAN BEING HAPPY.  Wow! this makes me happy.  When we decide to make others happy, we can be sure that we will not work at MAKING OTHER UNHAPPY!

So, let us go forth and produce HAPPINESS! Wow! Such happiness!

No, to Violence in the Family

My dear Readers and Bloggers, it makes me happy to see many of you read my blog.  If you think that others would benefit from the reading the same, then please do share.

This afternoon, I was listening to the radio and the topic was – ‘No, to Violence in the Family.’  The Family is supposed to be a Haven for all its members and when a family becomes Hell to its members, then it should be a No, No.

Marriage is not between two people, it is between three – God is the First person and the the Bride and Bridegroom.  The Holy Spirit is the UNITING FACTOR.   Without the Holy Spirit, Marriages become a burden and they break.  So, it is vital for us to invite the Holy Spirit into our Marriage.


Why do couples get married?  Why do couples co-habitate?  This is something that all couples should dwell on.  Spend some time and think……  Every individual is seeking peace and when individuals get married, they surrender themselves and their independence to the other.  What do you think they are saying to each other before they get married – “I give myself to you.  I trust that you will love me and take care of me forever.’  But somewhere along the way, some couples forget the love that they had for each other, when difficulties and problems come knocking on their door.  Life is not meant to be easy. Difficulties and Problems are part and parcel of life.  What each married couple should remember is – that marriage is not for a day or two – it is for a life time.  It is a commitment.  Couples should remember that it is important to put in a lot of effort into their marriage and to work towards PEACE AND HARMONY.  UNITED WE STAND – DIVIDED WE FALL.  So, families – STAY UNITED!

Father’s Love – Lyrics by Gary Valenciana

By Florence D’Costa

Fathers, how present are you for your children?  Your children are gifts from God.  I remember my son was very attached to his father.  His father, my husband worked long hours as he worked for an airline.  But when he came home, he was very present for his children.  Every Saturday he would go to the office to work though Saturday was his off day but sometimes he would take his children with him to his office and they enjoyed every moment of it.

I remember my son, when he came home after school, would dress up like his father.  He would put on his suit, wear a tie and he would also wear a name badge and he would play act as if he was working as a manager at the airport.  I also remember that my husband’s colleagues in the office and at the airport would chat him up and he would feel very confident of himself and proud that he had a father who worked for an airline.

Fathers, your children need you.  Love them and make them feel important.  If you love them when they are young, they will love you when you are old and will be there for you.

My husband loved our daughter very much.  When she was little, he would quite often bring home snacks and gifts for her which made her very happy.  We would then teach her to share with the others.  Now she is a child who loves to share with us and with others.  She loves giving gifts.

Our children are very loving children.  Why? because we loved them from the very beginning.  So, Fathers, when you make yourself available to your children, you build their confidence.  They feel loved and wanted and when they grow older, they will continue to love you and it would also be easy for them to love God Our Father and it would be easy for them to love others and accept them for who they are.

Fathers, play sport with your children.  Get involved with their interests.  Encourage them and help build their talents.  Take them to church.  Pray with them.  Read the Scriptures with them and have discussions based on your readings.  Laugh with them and when they cry, make them laugh.  Build their confidence so that when they come across challenges in their life, they will be able to cope.

My daughter and son are very attached to their father.  My husband till today is very dedicated to his children and he is always there for them when they need him and they are there for him.

Pope Francis has a few things to say Fathers :

Pope: Don’t be an absent father. Your family is counting on you

The Pope’s weekly catechesis was all about the family, so it was quite fitting that he played a bit with this baby, before starting the audience. He talked about the family unit and the need to raise kids right.
“In the past, kids were raised under an authoritative rule. In some cases this was very overwhelming. But now, what we see in households is the other extreme.”
He also talked about another serious problem, which is absent fathers. From fathers who are simply not in the picture, to those who spend all their time and energy on work.
“So young people end up without a path, virtual orphans without someone to trust in. They become orphans of ideals that awaken the heart. Instead, they turn to false idols that steal their hearts.”
There are strong families out there, but these challenges, he explained, cannot be ignored. He also gave some insight into what he will focus on next week.
“Some of you may say, ‘But Father, you’ve been too harsh and negative. You only focused on absent fathers and the consequences this brings.’ Yes it’s true. I want to underline this point today, because next Wednesday during my catechesis, I will focus on the beauty of fatherhood. That’s why I wanted to start off with this dark chapter, so I can then focus on the light. May God help us understand these situations. Thank you.”
This colorful group, put the finishing touches on the audience. The thousands of people in the audience seemed to enjoy it and so did the Pope.
