MISSION TALK-Rony Ben Dominic:Life-changing Cambodia

I was a teenager when I first heard about full-timership and its young missionaries, who are now famously called ‘God’s Crazy People’. The whole concept about setting aside a whole year to engage in mission work was an absolutely crazy thought for me and that’s precisely what attracted me to ...

Ask Fr. Bitaju

Your question seems to presuppose that there are not enough proofs for God’s existence. Yet, for those who are open to faith and reason, there is enough proof that God has provided for his existence. The most significant among those would be the incarnation of Jesus Christ, the second person ...

 It is true that the Church encourages her faithful to frequent the sacrament of reconciliation (confession) for their spiritual benefit.  The Catechism of the Catholic Church says, ‘confession of everyday faults (venial sins) is nevertheless strongly recommended by the Church. Indeed, the regular confession of our venial sins helps form ...

EDITOR’S ROOM- Simple, Ordinary, Holy

Thirty years ago, I happened to meet a young girl, starting her career as a clerical assistant. Thirty years hence, she still works in that same small office, with probably the same kind of work. Though the intervening decades saw her get married and raise a family, she is still that ordinary, soft-spoken, unassuming woman. She is content, happy with her work and modest income, unperturbed about attention or its ...

Jesus Youth – Dreaming and Striving for a World Renewed

Eagerness to welcome God's Kingdom – foundation of JY life and mission Wednesday gatherings after our 6pm prayer meeting used to be quite fascinating. For about 30 minutes everyone would interact and fellowship freely with each other. By that time others would trickle in for other discussions and meetings. Over time these 6.30pm gatherings became fertile settings where various socially relevant plans and projects evolved like, ‘City Alive’, ‘Colony outreach’, ...

Nalla Ayalkkaran in the time of calamity

... You received without payment; give without payment (Matthew 10:8). Through the life of Jesus, his words and deeds, his disciples experienced unconditional mercy of God. Even though they were not the best, in their limitations and weakness they received this priceless gift, and became channels of the same gift, ‘give without payment’. It wasn’t breadcrumbs from his rich table that Jesus offered those who came to him, but painfully ...

Called to Compete or Complete?

As a Catholic feminist, how do you attain social justice, liberation and radical equality whilst remaining grounded in the Word of God that commands of us a love that is kind, patient, loyal, unceasingly joyful, sacrificial and never judgmental? Allow me to hit you with a factual revelation, you can never serve two masters. We live in times that challenge us, women, to swim against the overwhelming waves of feminism ...

Another shade of Love

It was a beautiful summer morning in the quiet residential area of Hamilton, Canada. The three short months of summer were filled with excitement and the joy of chirping birds amidst the dampening clutches of Covid. I found a beautiful nest under my backyard deck, deftly woven by an American Robin – a grey bird with pale-orange breast. On peeking into the nest, I found four beautiful blue eggs. I ...

‘Have Faith, Son’

‘You should always be a religious individual.’ ‘You should always convert others to Christianity.’ ‘You should only spend time with Christian friends...’  The above imperatives were imposed on a majority of my friends during our ‘growing up’ phase. I, too, feared experiencing the same. But no. My parents never made similar statements. Yet, I was blessed with a formative guidance in Christian faith that shaped who I am now – ...
