Feast of the Holy Family

12-27-2020Weekly ReflectionFr. Arul Doss

Dear Brothers and Sisters.

I wish you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year-2021. Sincerely I am thanking you all for your wishes, prayers and Christmas Cards in view of Christmas.

This first Sunday of Christmas is dedicated to the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. It is the model of every true Christian Family. It is the nucleus of the human society and the place where life and learning begin. The importance of today’s celebration both in the life of the Church and our society cannot be underestimated.

12-13-2020Weekly ReflectionFr. Arul Doss

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,

The Sunday of Advent is called Gaudete Sunday or Sunday of Joy. This day takes its common name from the Latin word Gaudete “Rejoice”, the first word of the introit of this day’s Mass: This may be translated as: “Rejoice in the Lord always; again, I say, rejoice.

The readings of today are all filled with Joy and Hope in the coming Lord. The prophet Isaiah declared that he will greatly rejoice in the Lord and his whole being shall exult in His God (61,10). This is because the Holy one of Israel, the Lord who comes has been anointed with the holy spirit to bring good news to all those who are oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor… and comfort to all who mourn (Isaiah 61:1-2).


Prepare the Way of the Lord

12-06-2020Weekly ReflectionFr. Arul Doss

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ,

A voice of one crying out in the desert: “Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths”. (Mk 1:3).

On this second week of Advent, the liturgy of Word of God calls us to reflect on the reason of Christ’s coming, and on what we are expected to do this season. Today, our readings focus on the nearness of the Lord’s coming and the need for repentance for the forgiveness of sins. So, one very important question today is, why is Christ coming? He is coming because he loves us. He is coming to save us. He is coming to make all things new. He has a mission, and that mission is for us, and for our salvation.


1st Sunday of Advent

11-29-2020Weekly ReflectionFr. Arul Doss

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Good morning! Today is the first Sunday of Advent and also first day of a new liturgical calendar, year B. Advent is a season of hope and a period during which as Christians we await the fulfillment of the promise of God through his prophets. In addition to being a season of hope, it is equally, a season of patience and prayer. During these four weeks, we are expected to prepare for the birth of Jesus Christ our Messiah. It suffices to note that while we prepare physically, the most important must be the spiritual preparation.


The Feast of Christ the King

11-22-2020Weekly ReflectionFr. Arul Doss

Dear People of God,

Good morning. I hope, you are keeping safe. I am praying for you all.

Today is the thirty fourth as well as last Sunday of Ordinary Time Year A. Most importantly, it is the solemnity of Christ the King. This Feast of Christ the King was established by Pope Pius XI in 1925. The feast is intended to proclaim in a resounding, striking and effective way Christ’s royalty over individuals, families, society, governments, and nations.


Being Trustworthy Servants

11-15-2020Weekly ReflectionFr. Arul Doss

Dear People of God,

As we come closer to the end of this liturgical year A, the liturgy of Word of God, encourages us to remain faithful and dedicated to Christ our Savior. As good servants, we must be devoted to Him. Also, we must be ready to render full account of our talents to Him.

Today’s first reading for this Sunday is from proverbs. The virtuous woman of Proverbs radiates as a bright star. The term “virtuous” simply refers to strength, efficiency, or ability. Here, it refers to both spiritual and moral strength, as well as to the firmness of character (Ruth 3:11). So, she is virtuous because of the strength of her character and devotion.


Be Awake, Watch for God

11-08-2020Weekly ReflectionFr. Arul Doss

Dear People of God,

You might have received the mailing from our Diocese regarding the Annual Appeal. Please pray about this and return your pledge/donation soon. Help us to reach each parish’s target. All money received over our target is returned to our parishes to be used for our own programs and needs. Thank you!!

In this thirty second Sunday, the readings encourage us to seek the Lord and always be ready to welcome him. God Himself is Wisdom. He who finds and receives Him, will have the fullness of life in Christ Jesus. Therefore, we must ask God to grant us a share in His wisdom in order to know what to do at all time.


Programs Helped by the Annual Appeal

11-01-2020Weekly ReflectionFr. Arul Doss

I wish you all a Happy Halloween!!

This week too, I would like to write more about our Diocesan Annual Appeal. Again, we have prayerfully begun it in our parishes last week. The number and variety of programs and offices it funds is too long to list here. However, some of the various programs are of special interest are listed here. It is amazing how broad the scope of Diocesan involvement is! When you receive the pledge card in the mail, keep in mind all the people you are helping with your generous donation.


2020-21 Diocesan Annual Appeal

10-25-2020Weekly Reflection

Dear Reverend. Aruldoss and People of three Parishes,

May the Lord give you peace! Do not fear; I am with you (Isaiah 41:10)

I write to you with sincere appreciation of your efforts and willingness to shepherd God’s people through the most challenging of times. It is through your dedication and hard work to promote and teach the joy of the Gospel that encourages a life that Christ calls us to, a life of stewardship for which we were created. Thank you for your efforts and for your willingness to give witnesses through prayer, time, and talent to make our efforts fruitful.


Challenges of being a Missionary

10-18-2020Weekly ReflectionFr. Arul Doss

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

“How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” (Rom 10:14-15). With these beautiful words of Saint Paul, I begin this reflection on this 29th Sunday, which is celebrated as World Mission Sunday.


The banquet is ready. Come!

10-11-2020Weekly ReflectionFr. Arul Doss

Dear Friends,

We are in the month Of October which is dedicated to our Lady of Rosary. It is a very good pious work to recite Rosary everyday in your families. Praying Rosary is a best weapon to fight against our temptations and evils in our lives.

This twenty eighth Sunday readings talk about the banquet of the Lord. The Prophet Isaiah tells us in the first reading that God will provide a banquet for all peoples. Everyone is invited. God wants all to be saved and that should always be our prayer for our sisters and brothers.


Pray to God with Complete Confidence.

10-04-2020Weekly ReflectionFr. Arul Doss

Dear People of God,

I could see and experience the Beauty of our mighty God’s creation in this season of Fall. Here I would like share some reflections on the basis of this Sunday readings.

Saint Paul tells us today in the second reading, from the Letter to the Philippians: “Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God.(Phil 4:6)” The other two readings, speak of God’s love for us that is so intense that it is expressed in images of destruction for those who will not listen to His love and respond to it.
