10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)"
[Chorus]
Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship Your holy name

The sun comes up, it's a new day dawning
It's time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes

O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before

The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore

O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before

Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship Your holy name
Jesus, I'll worship Your holy name
I'll worship Your holy name​

**A POEM TO MOM**

DEAR MOM

You are as sweet as an Easter Bunny
And Your hugs are so fluffy
You smell like daisies and the best part
is when you are with me
And I am with you
You fly in your imagination like a butterfly
You land on a flower.
You get nectar from the flower you go into your coccoon
When it stops, there is a rainbow in the sky
I see unicorns on the rainbow

love

A FUNNY STORY FORWARDED BY THOMAS PHILIP RANNI

(A funny story by our Senior Editor Mr. Thomas Philip Ranni...Enjoy!!)

Some Jokes
A rabbi and an alcoholic bus driver arrive in heaven at the very same moment. The rabbi is shocked when the bus driver is greeted with great accolades and immediately asked to come inside while the rabbi is told to wait outside for a moment. After a while the rabbi is brought inside and he immediately asks God why he had to wait after performing God's work on earth while the bus driver with the drinking problem was given a hero's welcome. God says, "Rabbi, when you spoke in synagogue everyone went to sleep. When the bus driver was on the job, everyone was praying."

LOVELY TULIPS!  SYMBOL OF

FRIENDSHIP!

ALL ARE YOURS FORWARDED BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

ALL ARE YOURS


The splendor of the sky, the billows of sunset 

Swiftness of wind--- the gales and monsoons 

Depths of the earth and the gaiety of the star

Radiance of the moon, all are yours my Lord!

The crests of the ocean waves, the trenches
Sand on the sea, the hot desert and beaches
The pinnacle of mounts, the grandiose valley
The hills that surmounts, nothing I own---

Love in the air, smile of the young maiden
Faith as a mustard seed, canopy of nests
The lion who steeps by the green forests
And tiger that lurks for prey at nighttime.


All are yours forever from rising of sun
To it's setting; world stands in utter awe
Of your power and glory O' never ends
As my heart is yours till eternity sends!

THE POWER OF GOD'S NAME (PSALM 8): REFLECTION BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL


Yahweh, our Lord,
how majestic is your name throughout the world!
Whoever keeps singing of your majesty higher than the heavens
even though from mouth of children, or of babes in arms,
you make him a fortress, firm against your foes
to subdue the enemy and the rebel.
I look up at your heavens, shaped by your fingers,
at the moon and the stars you set firm---
what are human beings that you spare a thought for them,
or a child of Adam that you care for him?

                                                                       Ps 8: 1-4



*  The name of God spells majesty and glory.  It is just inherent
in God's Name.  Therefore, whenever the praise and worship of
God is happening, the diffusing of God's mighty transcendence
occurs.  Whenever the singing of praises resound throughout
the earth, God's glory sparkles like a juniper and coral, luminous
and pure!

A soul that is in love with God becomes a fortress against God's
enemies.  Why?  It is because that soul becomes engulfed in the
furnace of God's love.  When a soul becomes one with God, that
soul breathes the will of God, the likes of God.  Hence, this
soul is serious in battle against God's adversary.  The soul becomes
a forerunner of St John the Baptist, the one who prepared the
Way of the Lord.

The psalmist also noted that God cares for man and he wonders why.
"What are human beings that you spare a thought for them?"
God walked with man throughout history.  With its ups and downs,
God gently invites his people to come back to Him from the lore of
idolatry.  Idolatry is the camouflage of the enemy!  When the animals
camouflage just like a snake in a desert, it will go unnoticed.  This is
the same as idolatry.  Idolatry is masked as something pleasing but
it will lead finally to ruin---  idolatry to money, fame, vanity of the
world, vices as gambling and prostitution, the glamour and sparkle of
material world.  This could also be idolatry to paranormal activity,
psychic experiences, superstition, horoscopes and anything that harms
life as abortion, euthanasia, etc.  Be vigilant!  Come back, repent
from all evil in order to live for eternity.

TRUE MAN OF GOD#CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

TRUE MAN OF GOD

It was one pensive afternoon and Lily was preparing
her reflections for the week. Suddenly, a man of
somewhat Polish descent bothered her stillness
and calm. "Hi, I am Fr. Vhok, new in the parish and
I realise you are leading a group here. Sorry, to bother
you but I would like to introduce myself to the
community." Lily replied, "That's alright Fr., I have
heard that you are the new Asst. Priest. The admin
were all praises about you. "O, I'm just an ordinary
old bloke, see you around," Fr Vhok replied.

Jenny and Lily were curious about this new priest.
He delivers deep sermons, not casual but really
the ones which have class of it's own. He is quite
bald at the back of his head, so they thought he
must have studied so much in the seminary.

Once, Lily had a close encounter with the popular priest
and now she understands why. Fr. Vhok is sincere, down
to earth unlike other people who could be in the ivory tower
or in a pedestal. What more, he had that sense of humor
that will let you burst into laughter.

On one occasion, a gathering with the South Americans
was held. Guess what, Fr. Vhok knows how to dance the
Brazilian dance and all of them just laughed with all delight.
He knows how to adapt to all level of people and he does not
think that he is better than anyone else.

When Lily meet him anywhere, he had that childish but
polite smile of a friend. Everyone is comfortable with
the new priest. He is a man for the people and he exudes
a humility that is beyond understanding for a man trained
in the highest institution of learning in Theology, with honors.

Lily and her friends enjoyed working with the cool, bright
and caring priest. Then, it's time for Lily to move to another
parish. He is one of the people she is going to miss because
she grew up spiritually with Fr. Vhok, a true man of God!
There are many of them, but Lily thinks Fr. Vhok is one of a
kind. How he leads people to heaven!

LET LEAVES FLY: POEM BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

CYNTHIA ABEGAIL'S COLUMN: POEM
Let the Leaves Fly 
The following is another beautiful poem from our distinguished Poetess, CYNTHIA.
Thanks).New World

I thought it's only a day
Forgot that come what may
It's so long the time is slow
Rush the wind so I can go!

It did not hear what I said
I turn to the sky so laid
Can I ride by the clouds
Just for a second round?

No, quite busy, ask the tree,
It may bring you for a tee
How, the nests to bother
The birds do matter...

Maybe the flowers will send,
They are lovely so may bend
It's a surprise, no not now
The bees will visit so how?

With grief, my friends not yield,
Faced the leaves in the field
Brownish yellow by the east
Amused and glad not to cease!

The leaves flutter like birds,
Whispered mirth not tears
Will fly for you north above
Is it near or far from dove?

Let the leaves fly by the seas,
Send the message as I wish
Warm greetings that I miss
Thanks, love and peace!

( A very beautiful and thought provoking poem. Thank you Cynthia

A BEAUTIFUL MIRAGE!

ST THERESE OF LISIEUX ---THE LITTLE FLOWER BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL




ST THERESE, THE LITTLE FLOWER

Who would imagine that a simple maiden in Lisieux, France would be one of the greatest saints that was canonised in the Christian tradition? As such, one of the nuns even commented, "What will come out good out of Therese?"

God works in mysterious ways.   Most of the saints do not have doctorate or master degrees but they do become saints, worthy and pleasing in the sight of God! For the criteria set on becoming a saint is judged not by the earthly wisdom that they have demonstrated here on earth but by the life that they have lived!  Did they live the gospel of Christ in their life?  Didthey have a loving and compassionate heart, did they have a great lovefor the Almighty God?  Did they bear suffering joyously?  Did they
submit to the will of God unconditionally?

St Therese cops it all!  She had been attributed through her powerful intercession countless miracles, combined most of the other saints!  Truly amazing. 

St Therese in her early days was also intelligent, could have her moods, could have any person's tantrums.  She is a normal teenager, alive andpensive at times.  But she became a saint not because her qualities are likethat of ivory but only because she was sincere and she accepted her limitations.
This is the reason why she pondered on the 'the little way' to reach God.  Then, she was given the greatest honor a saint could ever get.
She became a Doctor of the Church!  Now, let us get this straight.  Anyonecould become a saint if God calls.  Pray, and it will be given unto you.  St Therese, an admirable saint who intercedes for those who invoke her aid by God's grace!
"St Therese, please send us flowers from your heavenly garden!"   Feast of St Therese:  1 October
