Humility of Samaritans

When our own faith is weak, we must pray for the 'humility1 of Samaritans', to rely and grow on the faith of the faithful2, who believe  in God, that our own faith may gradually grow strong, as we experience Jesus in our life.

1. The Samaritans had the humility, to trust the words of the woman who met Jesus at the well. They displayed the willingness to acknowledge her faith. Ultimately, their own faith grew strong when they  personally experienced Jesus– then, they didn't need the crutch of woman's faith.
2. The Apostles; the Saints and all the faithful who have lived Holy lives. And all those who are  presently living exemplary Christian life.

We too, should show similar willingness and humility, to grow on the faith of the 'Faithful'.

God's Faithful Love

Those who humbly1 live in God's presence, God's faithful love accompanies them everywhere, to support them; to strengthen them and to bring them on the safe path.

1. To acknowledge the authority of God and to accept God's most Holy will in our life.

e.g. Prophet Daniel; Abraham; Joseph (son of Jacob ); Tobit; Tobias etc.

Happy Children's Day

Little children are the canvas of our life. They become just what we paint them with. They'll become loving and caring, if we paint them with the colors of Love.

Jesus Christ said, " Let little children come to me ... ". 

It is God who forms everything that is Good- it is we, who deform everything in our human weakness.

Let us lead little children to God, to make a beautiful world.

Watch and Pray

This Spiritual artwork is about watchfulness in prayer and watchfulness in life.
Watch and Pray

Description: This spiritual artwork is about watchfulness in prayer and watchfulness in life.

In this spiritual artwork, we see an eye (denoting watchfulness), watching over the  world of vanity.

1. The pupil of the eye is represented by a heart, symbolizing watchfulness over our heart to be the priority in our life..
{ The Holy Scripture says: "More than all else, keep watch over your heart, since here are the wellsprings of life." [proverb4:23] }

2. In the heart is shown every kind of wickedness. wickedness divides our heart. The capital sins are shown in different colors to show their uniqueness.
{ The Holy Scripture says: "For from the heart come evil intentions: murder, adultery, fornication..." [Mt 15:19-20] }

3. The iris of the eye is represented by a clock (showing the time of the day/night ) symbolizing 'watchfulness' at all times.

4. The heart is encircled with praying hands around the clock, symbolizing 'prayer'– to guard our heart at all times.

5. The praying hands are shown in white, symbolizing the spiritual quality of prayer.

6. In the background is shown the 'world of vanity'– with beautiful, attractive colorful pattern symbolizing the enchanting quality of 'vanity'.

Taking a very close look at the 'vanity', we see underneath its superficial attractiveness a subtle mesh– a mesh of wickedness. A mesh that entangles a soul in every kind of wickedness1.

1. Pride; boldness; indifference towards God; a blatant courage to live without the 'TRUTH' (Jesus Christ )

Our swan song

Let today be the day of your homecoming to God.
Let today be the day of your humble faith in God.
Let today be the day of your charity in God.

Let today be your swan song1 of tomorrow, you are uncertain of.

1. The imminent uncertainty of death wouldn't spare us the second chance to live a beautiful life (in God); to repent; to begin again in God.

Conscientiously live each day in God– it may be the only day of your salvation.

Let us live

Pray- that we may grow in the goodness1 of God– and become children of God.

Believe- that we may stay alive2 and live eternally.
Repent- that we may be renewed in Christ.
            - that we may come closer to God.
            - that salvation comes home to our soul.
            - that we may be restored to the image in which God created us.

1. Goodness of God gives spiritual strength to our life. It makes us the 'salt of the earth'– makes us living examples of HIS 'Holy word'.

2. By believing, Christ comes to live within us– brings freshness to our life; makes our life Beautiful and fruitful.
