- Dear All,
Beautification of three more saints of our church, a matter to be
rejoiced. All these three fathers were instrumental in keeping our
faith in the right direction. We can't forget them. Even without
beautification we still remember them. Their memorials are a matter to
I think we blindly follow the IOC, and one or the other way we want to
keep pace with them, Is this the way we should show to the world that
we are nothing less than what they are thinking, doing etc. Really I
feel sometime pity over the current-day actions and re-actions from
both the sides. The IOC-ians are acting like the King Yerobayam. For
keeping his position he alienated from the main-stream of Israel, and
started a new way of religious activities. But our LORD never ever
approved his actions, and instead of blessings but were cursed not
only himself to all the 10 tribes who supported Him.
Slowly we are sidelining the Godhead with Sainthood, decorating humans
with it, and to the living with ornamental decorations to few, who
like to get approval from the people who is in authority, and show it
to masses that I am something and something. i think it is high time
we should put a break to all these, and lead the poor masses to lead a
prayerful life, fear the Lord. Our forefathers feared the LORD, but
we fear the WORLD. Slowly the reverance to the faith is disappearing.
I fear WE ARE PLAYING WITH FIRE.
That's all. With prayers
