SUCCUMB NOT TO INACTIVITY
By Rt. Rev. Isaac Mar Philaxenos
[Diocesan Bishop of Kochi-Kottayam Diocese, MarThoma Church]
It is great failure for the Church and its faithful who are called and commissioned to be vigorously active, to run away from their entrusted mission. The anointed prophet of God was looking for a temporary relief with one piece of bread and meat. But God's plan with him was some thing great and He did not allow the prophet to be inactive. The miraculous preservation of the life of Jonah in the belly of a fish was the great care of God for the further services of Jonah.

FATALISM
By E.S. John Australia
The seeds of fatalism sprout only when we are in the company of infernal forces that force us to follow their agenda of self-annihilation. Just as a father love and care his children, the Prime Mover listens to all our prayers and supplications and glorifications that provide us the abundance of life here and hereafter. Not only that repentance is the panacea that our sins being forgiven but also gives us all source of good things in a longer life.

FEEL THE RAIN ON YOUR SKIN - PRESENCE OF GOD
By Rev. John T. Mathew, Canada
It is impossible to ignore the inescapable theme of the presence of the Almighty in this Psalm of prayer of confession, dedication, praise and thanksgiving. It is not difficult to feel overwhelmed by fear of death, health issues, rejection and despair in this life. At sometimes, the ever-present God nowhere to be seen, felt and available.

HOLY EUCHARIST IN THE LIGHT OF NEW TESTAMENT
By Rev. Fr. T. J. Joshua
For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me. This was the establishment of Eucharist by our Lord Jesus Christ.

LOVE, BROTHERHOOD AND MUTUAL RESPECT AS FACES OF SPIRITUALITY
By Rev. Fr. Dr. Reji Mathew
Family is the origin of love, brotherhood and mutual respect. It was the exhortation of St. Paul to be affectionate one to another with brotherly love and to honor preferring one another. It signifies love, but also a readiness and inclination to love, the most genuine and free affection, kindness flowing out as from a spring. The tender unconstrained affection leads us for the greatest courtesy and obligingness, one to another. Instead of contending for superiority, we should forward to give to others the pre-eminence.
