WHEN WE FAIL…

WHEN WE FAIL… Life has taught me that I may not always succeed with every of my endeavour and undertaking. Times abound when the experience and the pain of failure may knock at my heart’s door. I know for certain that the lesson of life succintly presented above is a universal experience for those who acknowledge the reality of the principle of dualism in the universe. On the contrary, there are some people who deny the reality of failure as a possible experience in the respective areas of human endeavours…

REASON TO MOVE ON

REASON TO MOVE ON When it becomes dark, stormy and rainy; a natural bird doesn’t fly unless extreme necessity demands it does. There may sometimes be numerous and critical reasons to make one stop the good life style or journey that identifies one; but one must not forget a reason to move on. There is this song that testifies much about the faithfulness of God: “He has promised, He will never fail… His faithfulness is forever more. Shall we forget how well we have fought and how far we have…

… HEART AND HAND

… HEART AND HAND Why is the symbol of the heart used for love and not any other part of the exterior or internal organ of the human body? In my understanding, love primarily flows from the heart. Sympathy cannot be explained outside the heart. However, a loving heart requires a corresponding action of love for it’s perfection. It is not enough to sympathize with someone unless the sympathy leads to empathy. To sympathize is to feel with … while to empathize is to experience with. In the great words…

The Emmaus Journey often begins when disappointments and discouragements stand before us as a rock. The two disciples who set out for Emmaus had thought Jesus would redeem Israel from a material perspective. So they were downcast…

A GOOD FRIDAY MEDITATION

A GOOD FRIDAY MEDITATION The veneration of the cross of Jesus Christ reminds me of a Good Friday story. For the veneration of the cross in his parish, a priest provided a coffin in place of the cross. He had a large mirror fixed in the coffin. As parishioners filed passed and peeped inside the coffin, each one saw nothing but his/her own image. The experience was very emotional, and almost everybody returned to his/her pew sobbing. This story provides us with several lessons, but let us limit ourselves to…

40 DAYS JOURNEY WITH THE LORD.  DAY 40 Moderated by Fr Justin Nzekwe DAILY CHALLENGE: Visit the Blessed Sacrament and thank him for the privilege of this prayer. DAILY THEME: The power of Resurrection THINK ABOUT THIS: The resurrection of Christ did not just happen, there was a power that raised him from the death.
