About a hundred children had gathered in an out-of-the-way church in Norway. Some had walked 40 kilometres to get there, and some had never ever seen a church. The bishop himsel{ dressed in his robes, went over to talk t9.t!em. His very first ice-breaking question to them *ur, ;,whut do we caltr this house in which we now are?"

They all shoutedwith one voice: .,AChurch.,' "What do we use Churches for?,, several hands went up. And a lad from Lapland said, ,,For upbuilding." The bishop was happ;" with the answer and then pushed on, .,If you say we

ggmg hgre forupbuilding, thenwhatis itthatwe buildup?,,

The lad had an

ans',r/er. on

his fingertips, "we ur" ,,rppor.d to build up the

eternal life that is ir-l ,rurhearts." In all his days the bishop had never heard an answer as good as that one. Even the teachers, whom he later approached, had no idea where the lad had gotten the idea. |ior could anyone find it in books.

The bishop took that idea wherever he went. He would say, ,.I learnt from a youlrg troy what a community is. A community is a g.o.,p ofp.opre who help one

^ a'othertobuilduptheetemallifethatis intheirhearts.', Jesus, our Lord and Saviour, in humble obedience to the will of His

Irather, set about the task of saving mankind that had fallen apart due to sin. He io repent and believe in the Good News (Mk. 1:r5). in the work of establisiring the

Kingdom of God, "he went-about doing good" (Acts 10:3g) so that all rnight have life, and have it abundantly 1rn. io:to) and be orr. ooro*unitv of lo've and sharing (Acts 2:42ff). Jesus first launched the Kingdorn in the milie' in which He lived by forming a small community of llis chosen disciples. By being with Him and trained in His school of faitl and love, the disciples learnt the demands of true discipleship. During the celet.:lation of the iast Supper, Jesus assumed the role of a servant and having washed the feet of His disciples, called on them to imitate Him in exercisi*ing a leaclership ofhurnble and selfless service. on the same occasion Jesus piayed that Fiis discipies draw inspiration from the deep and intimate reLtionship He shared llY with His Father and always remain ,mit"d to Him and to oni another. Jesus accomplished the task that the Father entrusted to Him of saving all mankind


dividing wall ofhostility, thus creatitrg in Himself one new and breaking down the

humanity (E ph. 2: 1 4-1 6)

After His ascent back to the Father, Jesus sent the Holy Spirit-the spirit of life, the fountain of water springrng Lrll fo eternal life (Jn. 4:47;7:38:l;. fne Holy Spirit unified the Church as one comrnunify of believers while empowering her members with His manifoid gifts and charisms. Henceforward the Church, in faithful obedience to her founder has been carcyingforth the rnission of proclaiming and estabi.shing among all peoples the tingdom of God. The Church thus, is the sign and instrument of this Kingdom and a leaven meant for the transformation of ti'is world into a more just and fraternai, loving and peaceful society - a new sc-rciety. The early Church reflected on her mission received from her Lord and Master and worked as one united cornmunify to bring to realization the Kingdom of God arnidst the struggles and challenges of her faith witness. The life of the early christians was marked by genuine concem, fraternal fellowship and solidarity with the poor and the needy. The Church as Mother has never ceased to exhorl her members to aim to that ideal set by her Head and lived by the first Christians - a life of love and ecclesial communion based on the teachings of Christ, whom she remains united with a iove that surpasses all understanding (Eph.3:19). The spirituality of communion is at the heart of the church's life and mission. Communion has been the central and fundamental concept of the Second Vatican Councir ^r its reflection on the Church" The heart of communion is relatiqnships. All people of God are called to actively participate and share their gifts and charisms in the common mission of building the Body of Christ. Forging a bonding of relationships between the different members of the diocesan/parish/ward community calls for a renewal of rnind and heart and an attitudinal change from self-centeredness to Godcenteredness, from selfishness to selflessness, ftom dictating to animating, from criticizing to encouraging and so on and forth. Ifa parish is to reach the goal of becoming a vibrant communion of communities then the process of renewal should kick-start with the families (Domestic church) and sccs (Church in the neighborhood). The Goa Diocesan Synod held in the yt 'rr 2002 gave a fresh impetus to the process of renewal begun in the Archd'ocese. The Diocesan Pastoral P]rln20a2,the fruit of the synod, underlined six priorities, one among them

being 'the stabiiization and Flowering of small christian communities (SCCs)'. This year completes ten years of the above Synod. Besides, our Archdiocese wiil play host to the National Convention on SCCs to be held in the coming year. These two important events should foster in us a deep desire


to belong to

propelling

engage actively in building a s neighbourhood community rooted in the Word of God

us to witness to the Gospel values by our life of selfless service and generous sharing. "These neighbourhood communities are a sign of vitality within the church, an instrument of formation and evang elizatioln,and a solid

starting point for a new society based on a"civllizatjon of love,'. They are a true expression of communion and means for the construction of i more profound communion. They are thus cause for a greathope for the life of the Church" (Re demp tor is Mis s i o). During this pastoral year our parish of Holy Family has undefiaken as one of its main pastoral tasks: the building and strengthening of sccs. According to the plan worked out, the first stage of our sc-c programme is the Eucharist cum rnteractive session to be held in the differentzoneslwards during the second fortnight of August. community get-together curn fellowshf in eachzonelsomudai in the month of November will form part of the second stage. Thereafter all communities belonging to our one parish community will come together as one 'communion' foi the parish outing/celebration. understanding the specific role and vital importanCe of SCCs roi the buitding up of the parish community, let us all strive to that goal to which our Mother church invites us to reach: of building a shong, united and vibrant 'communion of communities'. our goal and vision oibuildirrg a strong and vibrant community of caring brothers and sisters will be, to a great extent achieved,

we could build

if

and

strengthen our Church at the

grassroots. The Church at the grassroots could then reach out to people ofother

faiths and persuasions, thus paving the way for Small

Human Communities not be easy. But with the whole-hearred and

.r,"Pff:]i3;:X'#fflt"Hn

our parishioners we will strive and surely achieve o.rt goul, our dream. certainly, under the guidance of the Hory Spirit in whorr, *.i*.r- all baptized into one body ( 1 cor. 12: 13) and with the biessings of the Holy Famity ihich is a model of true communion we will have builithe bridge of the Kingdom connected to our Lord's mission and completed at the end of time whJn we shall all be united with our eternal King.

lnaugural Mass Catechetical Y ear ZAle-e013 The beginning ofthe catechetical year20l2-2a13 was markedby abeautiful and solemn inaugural Mass on l0'n June, 20rz whichwas also the feast of the Body and Blood of christ. At the foot of the cross hung a banner bearing the theme of

the catechetical year -"Faith gives abundant life, real progreis is creation .ri.J1f .g The liturgy was prepared and coordinated by caiecliists Gemira Dias andMiniKoola.

Mass began with a solemn procession of the catechists entering the church followedby the altar servers and the celebrant, Fr. Tomas Lobo, our"parishpriest. The introduction gave a symopsis of the theme and the feasi of in, auy. tt. mystery of the Body and Blood of Jesus is the summit of the life of the church. This mystery bridges the heaven and the earth; using the fruits ofcreation, bread, wine and water, a miracle is performed: Jesus God and man becomes presenf on the altar. This miracle challenges us to see the creation with new vislon - a vision which surpasses all human understanding. The faithful were exhorted to pray in the Eucharistic celebration that the Hol! Eucharist becomes a source of spiritual energy that renews our life, deepens our faith each dayio**y through

the theme for the Year.

.,cherubs,, ltre Gospel reading, there was a short skit performed by the which brought out the message ofhow one needs to joyfulty shaie and help those who are less fortunate and also how we need to havi care and concern for our

environment and God's creation. Fr. Tomas further said in ni, no*irv, that for the Mass to become effective in our life, we need to prepare ourselves least ai a day earlier by reading the word of God. we also need-to be in a state of grace to receive Jesus into our hearts and need to fast at least one hour before we receive

Jesus. we need to be befittingly dressed to meet the King of Kings. Receiving Jesus into our hearts nourishes us and we need to take i"s.rs

*iti

us into our

!-9p.r and everywhere we go. The offertory gifts of the Bible and Bread and wne symbolized an increase in our faith uno it. presence orl"sus in our life.

After communion and the thanksgiving prayer, alithe catechists renewed their commitment before the altar with lit iandles and Fr. Tomas invoked God's

blessings upon them.

At the end of the Mass,,bgfore imparting the finar bressing, Fr. Tomas read out

a

few guidelines for the children, the parents and the catechiits in order that all may have a fruitful catechetical yeur. The inaugural service concluded with action songs "The wise man, the foolish man,, ind ,,It's I that builds

community" followed by a time of adoration of the Blessed sacrament invoking God's blessing on the new catechetical year. At the end of the adoration, sweets were distributedto all the childrenwho wenthome with great excitement.

TOVING VOURSETF "

When we were young we were taught that loving our self is selhsh and bad and if we loved ourselves we could

never love others. In recent times we

read that when you have love for yourself you learn to love your family members, your dear ones and friends. You need to love yourself in order to love anyone else. True humility allows seif love, and when you love yourself it encourages and enables youto love others. Being proud of self is good. It makes you have a positive attitude. It is goodto be proud ofyourself and your accomplishments but you should not be proud and become arrogant, selfish and greedy. We should always think poTi{ive. Our love should not be for pleasure and fame, but rather have the strength of good relationship with yourself which will help you to have the sarne relationship with others. It is very important to love yourself fully in a

good manner, to love yourself always, and to be happy with yourself. I have read of 7 ways to iove yourself. .....,...... ".. 1) FORGM YOURSELF:- There have been many ups and downs in my life and always thougi^i ilat i was useless, but someone in my life taught me that there is action worthy uf forgiveness, which took me a long time. I was told never to look back"on my mistakes, instead to choose to embrace the goodness ahead and love yourselfthe person you are. Forgiving yourselffor yourmistakes and shortcomings canbe diffrcult and does take practice, 2)' STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS:- When voung I wanted to be betler than others and if I did not succeed I felt I was a failure and useless but gradually I came to understand how foolish it is to compare oneself to others and realized the more you compare youfselfto others the less self -worth you place on yourself,.

.

STOP SEEKING APPROVALS:- Not seeking approval does not 3) mean I don't care. No, surely you would love to sltare your ideas with others but when you continuously seek approval from others and don't get a positive response for your requests you are damaging your self-relationship and yor.l will feel that your work may not be good enough. BELIEVE IN YOURSBLF:- You cannot love yourself if you do not believe in yourself. Both go hand in hand. Loving and believing. Believing in self is hard when things go wrong. Trust in your judgement and know that

4)

through good andbadyou are worthy.

member's unique charism needs tq be acknowledged, developed and effectively utilized. (Synodal Document 5 I) To make the Churchthe home and the school of communion:we need

to promote a spirituality of communion, making it the guiding principle of education wherever individuals and Christians are formed, wherever ministers of the altar, consecrated persons, and pastoral workers are trained, wherever families and communities are being built up. A spirituality of communion indicates above all the heart's contemplation of the mystery ofthe Trinity dwelling in us, and whose light we must also be able to see shining on the face of the brothers and sisters around us. A spirituality of communion also means an a6ihty to think of our brothers and sisters in faith within the profound unity of the Mystical Body, and therefore as "those who are apart ofme". This makes us able to share theirjoys and sufferings, to sense their desires and attend to their needs, to offer them deep and genuine friendship. A spirituality of communion implies also the ability to see what is positiv'e in others, to welcome it and prize it as a gift from God: not only as a gift for the brother or sister who has received it directly, but also as a "gift for me", A spirituality of communion means, finally, to know how to "make room" for our brothers and sisters, bearing "each other's burdens" (Gal 6:2) andl resisting the selfish temptations which constantly beset us and ]

They are I thus "a s olid starting p oint for a new society based o n a' ciiirizatibn o f I SCCs are

a true expression of communion and means for the I

construction of

great hope for the life of the --t Church. (Redemptoris Missio 5l) The SCCs are schools of "christian faith" as well as "church at grassroots" leading to Small Human communities, thereby paving

The Celebration of the Eucharist cannot be the starting-point for communion; it presupposes that communion already exists, a communion which it seeks to consolidate and bring to perfection. (Ecclesia de Eucharistia 3 5)

Pilin{ un stuff....... God has given us manygifts - talent, money, food, clothingetc. Butthese are notto be kept on lyfor ourselves, We have to

share ourgiftswith the needy. ln LUKE L2:13-.27,we read the story of 'The young Ruter, who thought that he was a,

But his love for money was his weakness. He wanted to piie up money foi himself and not use itto care forothers. He was rich in the wortd but not rich in God's sight.

well, why don't you try sharins your things with the needy. And whenever therc i, , I collection in church for the less fortunate, you could give a litfle money trorn vouil piggr-bank.
