A Story of Praise

God has worked beautifully in my life. I have learnt that God works in His own ways and that He knows our deepest desires. I have experienced this and truly believe in it. And today I can stand with pride and share how God has spoken to me and how He listens to His people. At the beginning of the conference, Levin questioned each one of us – “What are we here for?” Though we gave silly answers and even laughed over it, still deep down in my heart the same question needed an answer and the eagerness to know “Why?” And Levin’s reply was true – “I am here because God has chosen us and He has called us to be here“. His words struck me and he then urged us to listen to God and pray as to what He wants from us.

Praise be to Our Almighty Emmanuel

Jesus was there when I was operated on 18/6/16 boldly
Effusing all with His grace and mercy touching and healing cells in my body

Using you my brothers and sisters in prayer, service and loving sacrifices, satan’s evil plans to abate
Savior, Redeemer, King and Friend He truly is, a faithful shepherd potter and almighty God

St. Padre Pio

Padre Pio was a friar, priest, confessor, stigmatist, and mystic, now venerated as Saint Pio of Pietrelcina of the Catholic Church.

“All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. So we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We beseech you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.” – 2 Corinthians 5:18-20

Introducing the Propers

I recently had the golden opportunity of visiting the Holy Land with my family. One of the most profound moments during the trip was when we visited the pit in which Jesus was supposed to have spent the night as a criminal before his trial the next morning. At this holy place, was kept for meditation, the text (as I remember) of Psalm 88. As the speaker began to read this text loudly to our group, I was struck deeply. The resonance between the psalmist’s words and Jesus’ own spiritual and physical condition brought me to an unexplainable state of wonder. I am still in awe as I confront myself with the reality that in his trial, Jesus might have actually used and “borrowed” these words…words once prayed by the psalmist but nevertheless inspired by the Holy Spirit.
