Do You Love Me?

05-01-2022Weekly ReflectionFr. Arul Doss

Dear People of God,

Good morning to you all. We are in Easter season and today is its 3rd Sunday. During this time, we continue to reflect upon the theme of the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

In the first reading, led by Peter, the apostles continued to bear testimony to the risen Christ. Not even the Jews who they were previously afraid of could stop them. Fear now belongs to the past. So, Peter boldly said to the High Priest: “We are witnesses to all this, we and the Holy Spirit…”

Receive the Power of God's Mercy

04-03-2022Weekly ReflectionFr. Arul Doss

Dear People of God,

Good morning to you all. We are getting close to the paschal feast. So, on this fifth Sunday of Lent, all the readings give us hope, and paint a picture of a very bright future for us.

In the first reading, God tells us of the new things he has started doing among us, and for us. He is restoring our hope, and giving us every reason to continue living. This means that in spite of the difficulties of this present moment and season, the Lord will put a smile on our faces soon. Hence, we must be positive about the future as we approach the Paschal celebration.

Dear brothers and sisters in Jesus,

We have reached the fourth Sunday in our Lenten journey towards the Easter. Traditionally, it is called Rejoice Sunday (Laetare Sunday). Anticipating Easter joy, today’s readings invite us to rejoice by being reconciled with God through repentance and the confession of our sins and by celebrating our coming home to be with our loving and forgiving God.

We learn from the failures of our ancestors

03-20-2022Weekly ReflectionFr. Arul Doss

Dear People of God,

Good morning to you all. We remember today (03-19-2022) St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary. He was a righteous , humble, hard working and responsible man in the Holy family of Jesus. May our mighty God bless all our families through the intercession of St. Joseph. On this third Sunday of Lent, our central theme today is repentance. Repentance is, feeling sorry for the sin we committed, and a firm resolve not to deliberately commit it again. Sincere repentance provokes God’s compassion, mercy and love.

The Transfiguration

03-13-2022Weekly ReflectionFr. Arul Doss

Dear Friends,

Good morning to you all. In last week’s Gospel, we followed Jesus into the desert where He fasted and prayed. This week, He leads us up a mountain to witness His Transfiguration. Why? He is preparing us to go with Him in a few short weeks to a hilltop, Golgotha, where He will lay down His life for our sake — and finally to take us to an empty cave where He triumphed over sin and death once and for all.
