News & Pics: Mr John Menezes, Moodbidri


Sep. 5: Today the 7th day of Nativity Novena. Mass started  at 6.45 a.m. with children and adults gathered in the church  carrying flowers in baskets plates and in hand to honour Mother Mary.

Today’s subject for meditation : “ Jesus lost in the temple ” and today’s intention is to pray for   “Christi Calls ”

Jesus was lost in the temple and Mary & Joseph found him in the temple. When Mary asked Jesus “Why did you do this to us?”, Jesus answered “ Don’t you know that I have to do my Father’s will”.   Mother Mary did not understand what he said that time but she supported him.

We Christians are people called by God. We have three Sacraments- Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist as the Christian Initiation sacraments and two sacraments- Penance and Prayers of the Sick as strengthening sacraments.  Ordination and Matrimony are the sacraments of our offer to God’s call and we should honour this call and live the life as per His call to serve Him.  Priests and Nuns dedicate their total life to God’s service and the people build family and form the Church of Christ by His call for family life.  Let us pray for vocations and families to heed the call from God for His service.

After the mass children came for the ‘flower offering ceremony” gathering round the statue of baby mother Mary in the church compound  and threw the coloured flowers in the air while singing the hymn to praise Mary.  The Novena Prayer was recited and sweets were distributed to all .

Oh Mother Mary guide us and lead us in the path of God’s call.
