Greeting in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Glory to the infinity of God’s love.Praise God for giving us His grace to survive it in the face of a great pandemic. As our social life becomes more active, it creates a new awakening. November 1 celebrating as All Saint’s Day, a day commemorating all the saints of the church both known and unknown, who have attained heaven. The first Sunday of November is World Sunday School Day. “Anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it” (Lk 18:17).
“Children are great imitators. So, give them something great to imitate”.
According to St. John Chrysostom, the primary goal in the education of children is to teach, and to give examples of a virtuous life. Sunday school has a profound impact on a child's quest for spiritual moral values. Sunday school is the path to serious spiritual inquiry.
Fourth Sunday church meditating the visitation of Mary to Elizabeth, a special visit for sharing the Good News. The story of Mary and Elizabeth in St. Luke chapter 1 is an example of a genuine friendship. Both are God fearing, both had found favor with God and both were chosen by Him for special task. The dialogue between them was only of rejoicing and praise. This story described as one of the best - loved stories in the Bible. Here we can see Mary as the first Evangelizer who bring Jesus to Elizabeth and her unborn son, John the Baptist. May God prepare us in this new liturgical year of the church and the season of Annunciation for a renewed beginning.
God Bless You
Yours in Christ
