Re: "Holy Qurbana is boring "!!!
- Dear Ms. Susan,
This refers to your posting in Digest 827 as Message 2.
After going through your posting I feel PROUD, ENVY,
and GUILTY at a time.
You may ask, why I felt so PROUD of it? Because it gave
me a great relief that there are people like you in our
younger generation, who are well aware of the importance
of our Holy Qurbana. Then, why I felt ENVIOUS? I am
ENVIOUS not to you but to your parents. It is because
your parents have done a wonderful job by inculcating a
proper knowledge to their siblings, on the mistery of
the Holy Qurbana. And that is you you could express
about about it so beautifully. Then the third is GUILTY
consciousness. Why I have the feeling of guilty
consciousness, you know? Because I am not fully confident
whether my daughters' will be able to express the way
you did it could on the Holy Qurbana. No, I am sure they
can't. It pinches me very much.I couldn't teach my
children as your parents did it. Please convey my
thanks and gratitude to your wonderful Dad and Mom.
Dear Susan, as you said the comment on Holy Qurbana was
made by one of our elder member. You know, now a days
the philosophy swaying away our leaders and leity is
PLURALISM. In the name of 'open -mindedness', 'broad
thinking' and 'intellectual sophistication' convictions
are thrown in the air. Open-mindedness has almost become
like city sewer rejecting nothing. It will swallow
anything. Compromises are being conveniently made in all
realms of our life supported by own rhyme and reasons.
One doesn't want to be under any rule or law. They never
realize that "FREEDOM without responsibility results in
life without MORALITY".
Few from our members put the blame on our Priests and
Leadership. As a believer one do not have any role to
play? Can we put the blame only on them? Leaders never
just jumped from heaven, they were given the
responsibility to lead. If a lay man has got the ability
to lead and teach and have other God-given talents, he
should not bury it; use it for God's glory. Then only
we can be able to overcome, otherwise the loss will be
God Bless You,
Your's in Christ,
