We will now meditate one of 'HOOTHOMO SONGS'--song by priest at the finishing of Holy Mass
(The tune of Mar Jacob)
MASSIHA MANNAN JATHAM CHAITHORU GUHA THAN DHARE,
MRUTHI MASSIHAYIL PRAPICHORE PRATHI POTHUVAYEE,
PODIYODU SAMANUM NINNITHA MANNUM HEENANUMAM NJAN
PARIMALAMIYALUM PRASAMANA BALIYE YARPPICHALLO.
Jatham chaithoru guha than dhare---(dhare--vazhi or way) .The priest offer the Holy Mass to the FATHER through the way(SON) the only mediator
The Mass is specially for those who are departed (dead in massiha or who have put their trust in Jesus)
The third line is the most devotional or spiritually challenging words about the priesthood
We should acknowledge(PRIEST ALSO) I am PODI--mere dust
Ninnitha mannu--A wretched man that I am (Romans7.24)
Heenan--poor and not anyway comparable to Him.HE must increase but I must decrease(John 3.30) John the Baptist know if there is less of me then there is room for more of HIM.The more of me that dies the closer HE can get into me.The depth of your repentance will determine the height of your revival
The Holy qurbana is sweet and comforting as it is the sacrificial offering of our Lord Jesus
I pray that this meditation will make us more humble and broken hearted.
