Confidence alone easily obtains all things from the “Great Means of Prayer” (TAN)

 St Thomas Aquinas states:  “Our confidence in prayer must not support itself on our own merits, but on the mercy of God and the merits of Jesus Christ.”

Just like the publican who was humble enough not to raise his eyes to heaven but beats his breast and said, “Be merciful to me O’ God.  I am a sinner.”

**THE FRUITES**
POEM
BY
ARIANNA ROSE PHILIP

DELICIOUS FRUITES
SITTING IN THE BOWL
ALL DIFFERENT KINDS
STRAWBERRIES, BLUEBERRIES
EVEN PEACHES LOOK SO DELICIOUS

ALL RIPE
I TAKE ONE BY ONE
AND NOW THERE IS NOTHING LEFT OF THEM
BUT A BOWL !!



(Arianna Rose Philip, the youngest brilliant poet
in New World exudes a striking, natural ambience in
her latest poem, The Fruites.
It is interesting to note that Arianna chose logical themes of
nature and everyday encounters of life. This is superb because we can connect with them perfectly.
Arianna could be envisioned to be a great poetess in her own time; she is truly a promising poet, one to reach heights in the field of literature. Outstanding young poetess! Arianna, we love your poems!)
Cynthia Abegail Bernardo


 I liked the innocence and simplicity of the contents of young Ariann's poem Fruities and other poems which you had forwarded. It seems the frame of her mind is brimming with ideas on subjects which she observes around her. It is also evident that she minutely observe things. A bowel full of fruits and an empty bowel without them ! A common thing of everyday life has been depicted meaningfully and beautifully, I send my best wishes and congratulations to Arianna.

For Mama: Poem by Tahl MEJIA-Gopez

          

       For Mama

In my omniscient wholeness
I discern your dull brokenness,
your slashed womb where blood oozed
as I was let loose,


(picture of Tahl’s mother, Naty Jesusa)

your disfigured breast
where milk squirted as I was being fed
your hardened heart
where tears rolled
as I was growing old
your oppressed hand
where veins showed as I searched the world
In my dull wholeness
I behold your omniscient brokenness is.

(Touching and beautiful poem from our new Poetess from the Philippines.  Welcome Tahl).  Cynthia Abegail for New World.

Love God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind and with all your strength

Reflection by Maria Cassia

“Jesus answered, “The first is, “Hear O Israel:  The Lord our God, the Lord is one, you shall love your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind and with all your strength.  The second is this, “You shall love your neighbour as yourself.”  There is no other commandment greater than these.’



All of our lives should be based on these pillars of Christianity.  There is a difference between the 1st greatest commandment and the second one.  The first love is one of Worship and Adoration while the second one is filial love.


Still, love God above all!  When one loves God fully and devotedly, the 2nd commandment is easy to follow.  The grace of God being showered on you as you love Him 100 percent, no doubt, no ifs and buts:  you will love your neighbour spontaneously.  Why?  It’s because, only His grace and mercy will provide all the rest that we need.



Relationships are more fruitful if we surrender this area to our Creator.  The grace of unity and friendship with God Almighty binds all with love and blessings as we abide in Him!



This is not a secret but it’s the great truth.  Love the Creator of all things first and foremost.  All things will follow and all will be given unto you.




The others will argue, Love your neighbours first!  No, love God Almighty first.  We love you, God Almighty in your Son Jesus by the grace of Holy Spirit! We love our neighbours too, as You have commanded. Thanks forever and ever.  Amen

We give credit to those who had brilliant contributions to New World.  Arianna’s poems are crisp, vibrant and evoke simplicity from the heart.  My favourite is the Poem for Mum.  It shows the warm bonding of a mother and daughter.   She carried the legacy of her brilliant grandfather, George Kurian RIP.

POEM
BY

ARIANNA ROSE PHILIP 


Hey World !What is up ?
Are you doing anything fun?
I am sitting on my couch and writing this for you.

I know that does not sound like fun
but it is fun to me
So just remember when you are bored whatever you do is fun

Even when you're sleeping or
Walking around
You are having fun

the youthful vitality and melodious rythmn of Arianna's literary
work.  At this tender age, she can already compose excellent
poems.  Congratulations Arianna, we love your poems!)  New World

A FEW MOMENTS IN HEAVEN FORWARDED BY DR. ANISHA KURIAN-PHILIP

A FEW MOMENTS IN HEAVEN

I wanted to share this with you if you would like to put it on your blog. I do not know who wrote it.
This is one of the nicest e-mails I have seen and is so true:
I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels. My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, 'This is the Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are received.'
I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world.
Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.
The angel then said to me, 'This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed and delivered to the persons who asked for them.' I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged for delivery to Earth.
Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the door of a very small station. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing. 'This is the Acknowledgment Section,' my angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed 'How is it that there is no work going on here?' I asked.
'So sad,' the angel sighed. 'After people receive the blessings that they asked for, very few send back acknowledgments .'
'How does one acknowledge God's blessings?' I asked.
'Simple,' the angel answered. Just say, 'Thank you, Lord.'
'What blessings should they acknowledge?' I asked.
'If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of this world. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy .'
'And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity.'
'If you woke up this morning with more health than illness ... you are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day .'
'If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation ... you are ahead of 700 million people in the world.'
'If you can attend a church without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death you are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people in the world '
'If your parents are still alive and still married ....you are very rare .'
'If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you're unique to all those in doubt and despair.'
You just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you as very special and you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.
Have a good day, count your blessings, stay happy!
Difficult things take a long time, impossible things a little longer...
(Thanks Anisha for sharing this meaningful and lovely story) New World

LOVE'S COMING (John Shaw Neilson)



( New World Publication thank Cynthia Abegail for introducing John Shaw Neilson who has contributed a beautiful and meaningful poem for our Publication. Our readers will love such a wonderful poem. Thanks again) New World

LOVE'S COMING
Poem

Quietly as rosebuds
Talk to a thin air,
Love came so lightly
I knew not that he was there.

Quietly as lovers
Creep at the middle moon,
Softly as players tremble
In the tears of a tune;

Quietly as lilies
Their faint vows declare
Came the shy pilgrim:
I knew not he was there...

Without hail or tempest,
Blue sword or flame,
Love came so lightly
I knew not that he came.



John Shaw Neilson
