A Holy Command to serve and Love on Maundy Thursday!!!!!!!














The creator of the ``world sets an example for the humanity ....example no one ever gave....example which became an inspiration for the successive generation to imitate and change the meaning of service where there is bending down, to wash the feet of creatures. Bending down to lift the drooping spirit of Human beings.


It was a unique and exceptional, extraordinary example of love, service and surrender.  Although Jesus knew; Judas has plan to betray Him, Peter will deny Him thrice & His others disciples would run away! With d hands of selfless Service & with d heart of compassionate love & forgiveness, He washed their feet. 

With this Lockdown, today we can't participate practically in the ceremony of the washing of the feet. Most Catholics will spiritually and emotional miss a lot. They will miss all the traditional fervour and enthusiasm in the Catholic Church. But with this Lockdown, can we breakdown our ego & bend-down to wash d feet of our own family members by Accepting as they are, 

Loving, serving, listening, understanding & forgiving. There is Lockdown on a social gathering & not on the social media, so can we breakdown our walls of prejudices, hatred & jealousy & rebuild the broken relationships? Doesn't matter who was the wrong & who was the right, Can we be the first one to ask forgiveness? 

Can we take the first step to send a loving message or to give a call & restart speaking & caring each other? Today really can I breakdown my Ego & bend-down & indirectly wash the feet of my family & relatives? Let's not forget that 👉🏻 If you selflessly wash the Feet of others, surely automatically you will be washing your own heart in the precious Blood & Water which springs forth from the Saviour Jesus Christ.

Push the Stop Button!!!!!!!!



A time to stop...a time to push the stop button, apply the breaks....we have been listening music of ours for too long a period.....have been driving recklessly  and carelessly ....so it is time to refuel the pure spiritual fuel....which is available....we have been abusing the Mother Earth....Pope Francis a prophet of our times celebrated "Ladato `SII"....invited the whole world to respect and honour the Mother Earth....we have taking advantage of her but not giving her due that she deserves...


.it has now made us to change our way of looking, our thoughts, behaviour and attitudes towards the creation, animal kingdom and human beings.....after the crisis we will live a different lifestyle....we were careless and took pride in our inventions and developments.....our technology but today we know that tomorrow is not ours....

we don't know what will happen tomorrow....we cannot be sure of the next day morning....we are responsible for this crisis.....we just took advantage of God's providence and blessings....we forgot him, we abandoned him, we developed a business relationship with him...we went and asked when we need something....when we were in deep trouble....we called on him....but now we realise that he has the key,,,,he controls....he is the master...the GURU...he commands and not WE......

We can see the change already happening....long lost friends are searching, looking for you...some forgotten faces are resorting all of a sudden...love is increasing and abounding in charity and sharing....the famous and rich are coming out of their closets to participate in the sufferings of the poor people...discords are giving ways to friendship and unity,,,understanding among the broken families seems to be restoring at a fast speed....these are all going to be the results of the Corona crisis...

Another great realisation that has dawned on humanity in this period of quarantine is that our needs are very few but we were running and craving for it like mad...because we had adopted an unnatural life style which created unnecessary needs and desires...we were living in self-deceptive pride which created a distance between and among us...

.we had forgotten that only food, clothes and shelter is sufficient to live as great human beings...the other unnecessary material things and wealth has no value at all....now we are asking questions: why were we running and chasing useless things?
