THE PARADOX OF OUR TIME


1. *We live in times where we see many humans, but not enough humanity;*
2. *We live in times where the rich has more rooms than children and the poor has more children than rooms.*
3. *We live in times where Smart Phones bring you closer to those who are far, but distance you from those who are close;*

The Beauty and Mystery of Love from a wise Elder



It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return but what is more painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let that person know how you feel.

Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one so that when we finally meet the right person we will know how to be grateful for the gift.

Love is when you take away the feeling of the romance in the relationship but you still care for that person.

A sad thing in life is when you meet someone who means a lot to you only to find out in the end that it was never meant to be and you just have to let go.

When the door of happiness closes another opens, but often times we look so long at the closed door that we don’t see the one which has been opened for us.

The best kind of friend is the kind you can just be with, never say a word and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you’ve ever had.

It is true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose it but it is also true that we don’t know what we have been missing until it arrives.

Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they love you back. Don’t expect love in return, just wait for it to grow in their heart but, if it doesn’t, be content it grew in yours.

There are things you’d love to hear that you would never hear from the person whom you would like to hear them from but don’t be so deaf as not to hear it from the one who says it from their heart.

Never say good bye if you still want to try. Never give up if you still feel you can go on. Never say you don’t love a person anymore if you can’t let go.
Love comes to those who still hope, although they have been disappointed. To those who still believe, although they have been betrayed.


To those who still need to love, although they have been hurt before and to those that have the courage and faith to build trust again.

It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone and a day to love someone, but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.
Don’t go for looks, they can deceive. Don’t go for wealth, even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright.

HAPPINESS IS FACTORY FITTED

Some of the most profound lessons I had learnt in life came from my interactions with children and the probing questions they asked. That was the case on this Sunday. I was approached after Mass by a little girl. What i recall about her was that she was smart, bold, confident and precocious. She said to me, 'Please Fr. I need you to do me a favour. I need you to pray for my parents to become as rich as our neighbour, so that my daddy too can be happy. I love daddy but he is not always happy'. Need I say I was shocked? Just as I was about to engage her in a

Every Drop Matters


Recently, when I was going to bed after using my bathroom, I started hearing sound of drops of water from the tap in slow successions, but since it was dropping into an empty bucket, I decided to let it be.

But, alas! When I woke up the next morning, around 5am, the bucket was almost full! I was surprised that just drops even in such slow successions could produce that much. I couldn't help it, 'Just drops?!' I questioned rhetorically.
