To live pure is a task that is difficult to endure;
There are times we may fall yet God gives us his call.
When we try to live pure there are times we may fall;
Yet we must remember it is God’s call.
His call to repentance and a life of obedience
Yet his love is so amazing, that to me its bemusing Continue reading
Live Pure, a three-day conference for the Couples for Christ India – Youth was held from 4 Sept – 6 Sept 2016, at Lar de Estudantes, Panjim, Goa.
The conference began with a teaching on God and creation and the search for beauty, an amazing session given by Marissa Andrews. During the session, Marissa explained how our identity comes from God, and His image and likeness. The session also spoke about how man and woman are made equal but different physically, emotionally and spiritually and that our differences complement each other. The notion of love, saw a new meaning. The love of the Holy Trinity and the love of Jesus at Calvary is free, total, faithful and fruitful and that is the love God calls us to live out.

Time is a gift given to us by God; how we choose to spend it is our gift to Him. I spend some of mine at an orphanage, just playing with the kids, looking after them and learning from them. In this particular home I visit, there are a number of kids ranging from new-borns to around six year olds, however my heart goes out to these two particular kids. One is a little boy with hydrocephalus(a condition in which fluid accumulates in the brain, typically in young children, enlarging the head and sometimes causing brain damage.) while the other is a new-born baby devoid of pupils and with a cleft palate(a congenital split in the roof of the mouth). The thing is, of all the perfectly formed children there, it is these two that bring the most joy to me and I often wonder, why would their parents give away such a bundle of joy? Then, I stop and consider the fact that maybe they couldn’t manage to bring up the child and I thank God that at least they brought the child into the world. But how many of us on seeing such children often wonder why the parents didn’t choose to abort the child instead, and save them from a life that we would consider to be one of misery?
