Dear sisters and brothers,
Dear children, parents, teachers all the parishioners, Happy New Year and welcome to praise and glorify God in 2016. More than ever we are loved, healed and sent by God to do the same. It is our life time mission, especially in the year of Mercy.
Hardly Christmas is over and in a week’s time it will be Lent to experience God’s merciful love, in spite of our unworthiness. It is a perfect time to do right thing. This is well reflected in both Jeremiah and Paul. And Peter had to bite humble pea from his expertise of fishing, at the knowledge of Jesus about fishing.
Believe in Jesus and obey his commandments, and you will never be disappointed. His merciful love and guiding hand is there for those who listen and follow him. If you follow Him you will never be disappointed.
“And they left everything and they followed him”, can you? Father Ephrem
