THE ONLY ONE: POEM BY MARY VARGHESE




THE ONLY ONE-

Sent flowers every spring
Decorated the star-studded sky
The flaming ball by day
And the cool moonlit night
Made the thundering clouds
Shower drops of mercy
To satiate the parched land
Made new leaves to sprout
Embroidered this vast universe
With beauty untold,
Waiting yet to be revealed
To tell me how much You love
All these were messages
From your loving heart
Still when you looked down
You saw my empty heart
You knew only You could fill
The vacuum in this heart of mine
So You came down in human form
Emptied yourself on the Cross but for love
Just to fill my frail human heart!!!!!
Oh how great is Your Love!!
How tender, kind and sure!!!
The God of this Universe

Chose to dwell in this heart of mine!

THE LIGHT OF DAWN BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

THE LIGHT OF DAWN


The darker moon descended the end of sea,
Trickles of light emerge seemed from nadir-
As the waves gleefully danced to the shore
Hazy beginning, radiated slowly at its door.

This is the dawn of new life, a renewed day
Man fall but the hope never fails, unending
As the gates were closed but hopes to open
The blood that cleanses, sins white as snow!

A shadow of lovers sat by the rocks at dawn,
Reminisce the new covenant of God and man
The sweetness of gaze melts in intimate love
Though agape encompass the beauty of dawn.

As they hold their hands, reminisce how He
Carry us everywhere, everytime in highs---
Most of all in the lows of our lives at its ebbs,
Come in His presence, pray O' at depths!

What He has given, He can withhold again,
Gifts He bestowed as golden turns to rust
At His beckon, all may end not to ascend--
At His beckon, all may never to descend!

I like the light of dawn in as much as sunset,
But the Creator of both I love most and best
Not only of His Wisdom, Beauty and Power,
For lo' I am His creature- thankful at dawn!

THE BIRDS ARE CHIRPING: REFLECTIONS by MARIA CASSIA


We're there times that your feet seems to fly from the ground.
These are joyful times when life seems kind to you.  One will
say, "Not much though!"  Yes, we do understand that life is not
a bed of tulips.  But it depends upon our attitude.  We can make
the most of the best and the worst!

If one can still appreciate the chirping of the birds, then joy
has not departed that person.  We realise that joy and peace 
could be elusive at times.

These states could be possible through intense prayer.  God is
the source of peace, joy and happiness.  Let us turn to Him
for all our needs.  He will grant us our wishes according to
his will.  Not our will, but Thine Will be done, Oh Lord!

Maria Cassia

HOLY SONNET: AT THE ROUND END'S IMAGINED CORNERS: CYNTHIA ABEGAIL'S COLUMN

HOLY SONNET

(The lovely Sonnet was forwarded by our Cynthia Abegail.Thanks)

At the round earth's imagined corners, blow
Your trumpets, angels; and arise, arise
From death, you numberless infinities
Of souls, and to your scattered bodies go;
All whom the flood did, and fire shall o'erthrow,
All whom war, dearth, age, agues, tyrannies,
Despair, law, chance, hath slain, an you whose eyes
Shall behold God, and never taste death's woe.
But let them sleep, Lord, and me mourn a space;
For, if above all these, my sins abound,
'Tis late to ask abundance of Thy grace
When we are there. Here on this lowly ground;
Teach me how to repent; for that's as good
As if Thou 'hadst sealed my pardon with Thy blood.



JohnDonne

Born in London. Studied law and became Dean of St. Paul's

later in life and was a celebrated preacher.

THE MIRACLE AT GUADALUPE: MOTHER MARY, PRAY FOR US




The Mother of Jesus is the Mediatrix of Graces.  A mother is always dear to a son.  How much more to our Lord Jesus?  How can anyone not love the mother, who bore the Holy One by the Holy Spirit : in the womb of Blessed Virgin Mary?

  • We worship One God in the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit and we venerate or honour Mother Mary for she is also crucial to our salvation!  Mother Mary, pray for us!
