MESSAGE

ROSARY IS THE GATE TO HEAVEN In Luke 7, Jesus observed a huge funeral procession in Nain. The entire town was present. He observed the young men and women weeping. He observed the pastors and apostles weeping. He observed the elders weeping. He observed the fathers weeping. He observed the children weeping. He observed the sadness on people's faces. Nothing seemed to move Him, until He saw the mother. The Bible says He had compassion when He saw her and immediately raised her boy from the dead. (Luke 7:12-15). It was the cry of a mother that moved the Heart of God. Still today, mothers who cry before the Lord for their families, for their marriages, for their homes move the Heart of God. When mothers stop praying their families (especially their children) perish. Satan gets a foothold and starts to destroy the home, yet when they return to their rightful place as the anchor of the home, demonic strongholds get demolished. In Psalms 17, 36, 57, 63, and 91 God's role is likening to that of a mother. As a mother protects, upholds and defends her children, so does God also protect us under the shadow of His wings. We find refuge there and can hide there until the danger is over. A mother's role is so vital that a father cannot get his prayers answered if he dishonours/ disrespects her (1 Peter 3:7). Because, of this favour over mothers, they are also the most attacked persons in the home. The devil is terrified of mothers (the powerhouse in the home). Yet the Lord has put inside mothers grace and resilience to overcome any situation. Today, as the woman of the home, consider yourself blessed. Consider yourself highly favoured and consider yourself victorious, praying the daily rosary with all your entire family, when you pray, the daily rosary. “Some people are so foolish that they think they can go through life without the help of the Blessed Mother. Love the Madonna and pray the rosary, for her rosary is the weapon against the evils of the world today. All graces given by God, passes through the Blessed Mother.� St. Padre Pio -Fr. Anand da Gama Pais 2

I CONFESS TO GOD Lourenco D Mendonรงa God is our loving heavenly Father. He is all mercy and good. In His abundant pity upon us He is all forgiving. Even in our wretched and sinful state of living, He does not forsake us. To experience his fatherly love, it is essential on our part to have a contrite heart. And how can we accept his mercies in this miserable state of us is only through the Sacrament of Confession. God has bestowed on the priest, in the confessional, his mighty gift of forgiving. An opportunity to us, mortal souls, a chance to reconcile with our Creator and come clean, a reborn human being. By the pain, suffering and death on the cross, our Lord Jesus Christ, has set us free from sin. Hence all our bondages and burdens we have to truthfully and completely confess to the priest and attentatively listen to his counselling. His words of love, wisdom and humility enhance our faith in Jesus Christ. The penance that the priest gives us, has to be faithfully and truly accomplished. In all humility and prayer, God cleanses us and makes us new. We receive the merciful love of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ knows of our sinful state and longs for our homecoming through the Sacrament of Confession. We, in return have to pledge, to sin no more. The best witness we can give of our soul cleansing in society, is by others seeing in us the work of truth and mercy committed by us to the least of our brethren. We have to forgive others who sin against us just as Jesus has forgiven us. The sign of conversion in us is a divine blessing from God.

PPC ELECTIONS First round of elections to elect the Ward Representatives will be held on Sunday, the 21st of October, 2018 after all the three masses in the Church and the Chapels. So be there to vote and elect. 4

SERVING THE POOR WITH LOVE We feel happy to place a report of SSVP activities in our parish bulletin ' PRERNA ' . Our members have been reaching out to the less fortunate in and out of the parish in many different ways. Although we active members are few in number, putting our hands and minds together with active collaboration of our Parish Priest Fr. Anand Pais, we have been able to help so many of our parishioners at critical times of their needs. Our beneficiaries who regularly receive monthly rations of Rs. 600/each, have been 27 in number so far. But after appraisal of their home situation, we are in the process of encouraging them to self-help in improving their means of living. Rations for the poor, medicines for the sick, scholarship for students in fee payments is the normal activity we undertake. Recently we helped pay the funeral expenses of one of our beneficiaries. Visit to the elderly, the sick and home bound is an essential part of our mission. We also take patients to and fro the hospital whenever requested. We attended to a beneficiary and has taken her to GMC and follow up done. Eight families are given monetory support upo Rs. 1000/- for medicines. Cases of beneficiaries are reviewed by SSVP members for his financial year. Such cases referred to us are investigated. Funeral arrangement and expenditure borne by SSVP with support of benefactors. The SSVP members have also visited the sick at home, attended funerals, patients in the hospital. Words of thanks-giving are never enough for our benefactors. Our monthly instalment donors, people who deposit kitchen food articles in the box in church, the money put in sunday box or the box placed in church, our regular money donors and our well wishers. A big thank you and God bless to all. Our only humble wish is that youth members join our association. God willing, we will report new members the next time. President:Marina Fernandes Secretary :Melina Mendonça Treasurer: Lawrence Fernandes

Good Deeds We are God's workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works. One cannot neglect the practice of good deeds under the pretence of faith. When we pretend to have faith but no works of charity is utterly vain. We are God's workmanship designed for good works. Jesus said in His Sermon on the Mount “Let your light shine before people, so that they will see the good things you do, and praise your Father in Heaven. (Mt 5:16) We have sidelined the teaching on good deeds as 'social service' and consider it less spiritual. The very purpose why God saved us, is to do good works. Christ Jesus created for a life of good deeds (Eph 2:10) 9

In Old Age

POETRY/KOVITA:

A Builder For Tomorrow

The joy in our old age, Is thinking of young days. Teachers are among the greatest servants. Old days are like a cage, They mould the nation, No running and no plays. By moulding the plastic clay of youth. In old age, to well rest, They do more than fill hearts, In youth preserve good wealth. They free minds. Such thinking, is the best, They do more then teach facts, If needs shelter and health. They inspire growth. Human age faculties, A wise teacher knows, Mostly turn enemies, That the finest contribution she can make, The precious vision dims, Is to teach children to think, And also hearing shrinks. To stimulate them to build great lives. If lonely in the house, She shares the treasury of her knowledge, Miserable is life, Of books and truth and beauty with them. Choose Guirim Old Age house, She believes in them! If no husband or wife. The teacher does a noble work on earth. Let us take, aged good care, She lights candles of greatness, And also give respect. To dissolve the darkness, For we will be their heir, Of ignorance and fear, Such attitudes is perfect. She is a quiet worker, -Perpetuo Ferrao Building the foundation of tomorrow. - Dona Vaz

POWER OF THE “WORD OF GOD” -Meliza Franco The Holy Bible clearly mentions how powerful the Word of God is. The below two examples are taken from the Bible. Heb 4:12 says “The Word of God is living and active, sharper than any double edged sword, piercing until it divides soul from spirit, joints from marrow, it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” This verse means the Word of God has the power to search, scan and screen our inner most being. Where even medical science cannot reach and rectify, what has gone wrong. Eg. The Doctor can operate a human brain and other organs if required, but cannot operate the mind of a person. Whereas the Word of God has the capacity to do it. It is able to renew the thoughts and change our feelings, emotions. It can heal wounded relationships, and mend broken hearts. Ps 107:20 says “God sent out his word and healed the people and delivered them from destruction.” This verse means we have to speak God's word out from our mouth concerning healing. 1 Pt 2:24 says that “by the wounds and stripes of Jesus, we have been healed.” This promise of God when we believe and say with faith and confidence, it has the power to heal every sickness and disease. BIBLE = WORD OF GOD = GOD HIMSELF

DID YOU KNOW? Bacteria linked to dog saliva has killed a woman in her mid-fifties and a man in his forties, had his arms and legs amputated in America in June this year. We are conversant with rabies, but this is not such a problem. So beware about kissing dogs and cats. It affects people over forty years of age. The symptoms are flu-like-slurred speech, unresponsiveness, confusion, diarrhea, fever, kidney problems, sepsis-blood poisoning. You could be infected if you get licked or kissed by a dog. Earlier deaths were very, very rare as the doctors knew that it was caused by a bacterium called CAPNOCYTOPHAGA CANIMORSUS. The two rare cases of rare infection are raising awareness and anxiety about risks of interacting with dogs and cats. The bacteria is common in dogs and cats, but it is harmless for them, but it can sicken human being, specially those who do not have proper or strong defence auto-immune mechanism, what we call as immunity. People with low immune system are most at risk. Healthy people are at risk too. In the case of the lady who died on June 23, 2018, she was nipped by the pet dog on the hand while the man had come in contact with a few dogs. He was not bitten by any of the dogs, he had only come in contact with them. The man survived by, had his arms and legs amputated since they had turned blue as there was no circulation. It is now called the LICK OF DEATH. -Carmel D. De Souza 11

THE IMPORTANCE OF VALUES AND MORALS -Gia D'Souza M.K. Gandhi, the Father of the Nation said...Picture/shadow of persons“If wealth is lost, nothing is lost” “If health is lost, something is lost” “If character is lost, everything is lost” So, best of all things is CHARACTER. Life is precious. We all protect our life because we care for it more than anything else. If life is so important, values in life are more important. Values are the guiding principles or standards of behaviour which are regarded desirable and held in high esteem by a particular society in which a person lives. Values guide our interaction with others, our friends and family. Our values and morals are a reflecion of our spiritually. Adults should be very particular about their values and morals because children watch them and develop their own sense of right and wrong. A person with proper values will not be afraid to face problems. He or she will accept them as a part of life. He/She will no give unnecessary importance to anything that happens in life. He os she will have complete faith in God. Such a person becomes an example to the rest. We must love our own values in life; in order to build a strong character. As the Chinese proverb goes, “If there is righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in character. If there is beauty in character, there will be harmony in the home. When there is harmony in the home, there will be order in the nation. When there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the world.” So build your character and try to shape the character of others.
