This Blogger and his Blog ENVIUS THOUGHTS in https://nvsr.wordpress.com  with an overall view score of TWO LAKHS AND SEVENTEEN THOUSAND  from more than two hundred countries is an UNIVERSALIST and an INDIAN FIRST AND INDIAN LAST!

We have Missions and Missions-organizations to develop the society and its people with the ultimate objective of ensuring peace and harmony, pleasure and prosperity, joy and health. Sri Ramakrishna Mission, Chinmaya Mission, Sai Mission, World Christian Missions, UN Missions, Space Missions, Nasa  Missions!!!!!!!!

Today October 20th is MISSION SUNDAY-an important Mission day for Christianity all over the world.

World Mission Sunday is on the penultimate Sunday in October each year. It’s the one Sunday in the year when the entire global Church comes together to support mission. And every single donation from these worldwide Masses goes to support churches, hospitals, schools and vocations in countries where the Church is new, young or poor.

Every Catholic community, in every country, sends a powerful message of faith, hope and love on this special day.

This is their chance to show love and solidarity to the global Church family. Through prayers, they support missionaries everywhere in spreading the Good News. And by donating they respond to Christ’s call to feed the hungry and clothe the naked.

Today. Tomorrow. Together.

All Christians are proud to be the Pope’s chosen charity for mission. Mission works with the Mission family around the world to bring the church together in compassion and communion. Together, they coordinate World Mission Sunday and provide mission dioceses with the essential support they need to become self-sufficient.

They work with local bishops, churches and missionary congregations, to distribute resources and funds fairly on the basis of need. And all of donations go directly from the entire world including England and Wales to the bishops in the mission territories: local church directly helping local church!

MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS FRANCIS
FOR WORLD MISSION DAY 2019

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

For the month of October 2019, I have asked that the whole Church revive her missionary awareness and commitment as we commemorate the centenary of the Apostolic Letter Maximum Illud of Pope Benedict XV (30 November 1919). Its farsighted and prophetic vision of the apostolate has made me realize once again the importance of renewing the Church’s missionary commitment and giving fresh evangelical impulse to her work of preaching and bringing to the world the salvation of Jesus Christ, who died and rose again.

The title of the present Message is the same as that of October’s Missionary Month: Baptized and Sent: The Church of Christ on Mission in the World. Celebrating this month will help us first to rediscover the missionary dimension of our faith in Jesus Christ, a faith graciously bestowed on us in baptism. Our filial relationship with God is not something simply private, but always in relation to the Church. Through our communion with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we, together with so many of our other brothers and sisters, are born to new life. This divine life is not a product for sale – we do not practise proselytism – but a treasure to be given, communicated and proclaimed: that is the meaning of mission. We received this gift freely and we share it freely , without excluding anyone. God wills that all people be saved by coming to know the truth and experiencing his mercy through the ministry of the Church, the universal sacrament of salvation

The Church is on mission in the world. Faith in Jesus Christ enables us to see all things in their proper perspective, as we view the world with God’s own eyes and heart. Hope opens us up to the eternal horizons of the divine life that we share. Charity, of which we have a foretaste in the sacraments and in fraternal love, impels us to go forth to the ends of the earth . A Church that presses forward to the farthest frontiers requires a constant and ongoing missionary conversion. How many saints, how many men and women of faith, witness to the fact that this unlimited openness, this going forth in mercy, is indeed possible and realistic, for it is driven by love and its deepest meaning as gift, sacrifice and gratuitousness! The man who preaches God must be a man of God

This missionary mandate touches us personally: I am a mission, always; you are a mission, always; every baptized man and woman is a mission. People in love never stand still: they are drawn out of themselves; they are attracted and attract others in turn; they give themselves to others and build relationships that are life-giving. As far as God’s love is concerned, no one is useless or insignificant. Each of us is a mission to the world, for each of us is the fruit of God’s love. Even if parents can betray their love by lies, hatred and infidelity, God never takes back his gift of life. From eternity he has destined each of his children to share in his divine and eternal life

This life is bestowed on us in baptism, which grants us the gift of faith in Jesus Christ, the conqueror of sin and death. Baptism gives us rebirth in God’s own image and likeness, and makes us members of the Body of Christ, which is the Church. In this sense, baptism is truly necessary for salvation for it ensures that we are always and everywhere sons and daughters in the house of the Father, and never orphans, strangers or slaves. What in the Christian is a sacramental reality – whose fulfillment is found in the Eucharist – remains the vocation and destiny of every man and woman in search of conversion and salvation. For baptism fulfils the promise of the gift of God that makes everyone a son or daughter in the Son. We are children of our natural parents, but in baptism we receive the origin of all fatherhood and true motherhood: no one can have God for a Father who does not have the Church for a mother.

Our mission, then, is rooted in the fatherhood of God and the motherhood of the Church. The mandate given by the Risen Jesus at Easter is inherent in Baptism: as the Father has sent me, so I send you, filled with the Holy Spirit, for the reconciliation of the world . This mission is part of our identity as Christians; it makes us responsible for enabling all men and women to realize their vocation to be adoptive children of the Father, to recognize their personal dignity and to appreciate the intrinsic worth of every human life, from conception until natural death. Today’s rampant secularism, when it becomes an aggressive cultural rejection of God’s active fatherhood in our history, is an obstacle to authentic human fraternity, which finds expression in reciprocal respect for the life of each person. Without the God of Jesus Christ, every difference is reduced to a baneful threat, making impossible any real fraternal acceptance and fruitful unity within the human race.

The universality of the salvation offered by God in Jesus Christ led Benedict XV to call for an end to all forms of nationalism and ethnocentrism, or the merging of the preaching of the Gospel with the economic and military interests of the colonial powers. In his Apostolic Letter Maximum Illud, the Pope noted that the Church’s universal mission requires setting aside exclusivist ideas of membership in one’s own country and ethnic group. The opening of the culture and the community to the salvific newness of Jesus Christ requires leaving behind every kind of undue ethnic and ecclesial introversion. Today too, the Church needs men and women who, by virtue of their baptism, respond generously to the call to leave behind home, family, country, language and local Church, and to be sent forth to the nations, to a world not yet transformed by the sacraments of Jesus Christ and his holy Church. By proclaiming God’s word, bearing witness to the Gospel and celebrating the life of the Spirit, they summon to conversion, baptize and offer Christian salvation, with respect for the freedom of each person and in dialogue with the cultures and religions of the peoples to whom they are sent. The missio ad gentes, which is always necessary for the Church, thus contributes in a fundamental way to the process of ongoing conversion in all Christians. Faith in the Easter event of Jesus; the ecclesial mission received in baptism; the geographic and cultural detachment from oneself and one’s own home; the need for salvation from sin and liberation from personal and social evil: all these demand the mission that reaches to the very ends of the earth.

The providential coincidence of this centenary year with the celebration of the Special Synod on the Churches in the Amazon allows me to emphaze how the mission entrusted to us by Jesus with the gift of his Spirit is also timely and necessary for those lands and their peoples. A renewed Pentecost opens wide the doors of the Church, in order that no culture remain closed in on itself and no people cut off from the universal communion of the faith. No one ought to remain closed in self-absorption, in the self-referentiality of his or her own ethnic and religious affiliation. The Easter event of Jesus breaks through the narrow limits of worlds, religions and cultures, calling them to grow in respect for the dignity of men and women, and towards a deeper conversion to the truth of the Risen Lord who gives authentic life to all.

Here I am reminded of the words of Pope Benedict XVI at the beginning of the meeting of Latin American Bishops at Aparecida, Brazil, in 2007. I would like to repeat these words and make them my own: “Yet what did the acceptance of the Christian faith mean for the nations of Latin America and the Caribbean? For them, it meant knowing and welcoming Christ, the unknown God whom their ancestors were seeking, without realizing it, in their rich religious traditions. Christ is the Saviour for whom they were silently longing. It also meant that they received, in the waters of Baptism, the divine life that made them children of God by adoption; moreover, they received the Holy Spirit who came to make their cultures fruitful, purifying them and developing the numerous seeds that the incarnate Word had planted in them, thereby guiding them along the paths of the Gospel… The Word of God, in becoming flesh in Jesus Christ, also became history and culture. The utopia of going back to breathe life into the pre-Columbian religions, separating them from Christ and from the universal Church, would not be a step forward: indeed, it would be a step back. In reality, it would be a retreat towards a stage in history anchored in the past”.

We entrust the Church’s mission to Mary our Mother. In union with her Son, from the moment of the Incarnation the Blessed Virgin set out on her pilgrim way. She was fully involved in the mission of Jesus, a mission that became her own at the foot of the Cross: the mission of cooperating, as Mother of the Church, in bringing new sons and daughters of God to birth in the Spirit and in faith.

I would like to conclude with a brief word about the Pontifical Mission Societies, already proposed in Maximum Illud as a missionary resource. The Pontifical Mission Societies serve the Church’s universality as a global network of support for the Pope in his missionary commitment by prayer, the soul of mission, and charitable offerings from Christians throughout the world. Their donations assist the Pope in the evangelization efforts of particular Churches (the Pontifical Society for the Propagation of the Faith), in the formation of local clergy (the Pontifical Society of Saint Peter the Apostle), in raising missionary awareness in children (Pontifical Society of Missionary Childhood) and in encouraging the missionary dimension of Christian faith (Pontifical Missionary Union). In renewing my support for these Societies, I trust that the extraordinary Missionary Month of October 2019 will contribute to the renewal of their missionary service to my ministry.

To men and women missionaries, and to all those who, by virtue of their baptism, share in any way in the mission of the Church, I send my heartfelt blessing.

Thus ends this week’s Sunday story and we shall proceed as usual tomorrow. Till then GOOD BYE!

VIRGIN MARY’S BIRTH DAY- September 8th

 

Image result for Deva Matha birthday

Gandhi referred to “God” as “Truth,” which has great significance. His mission was not only to humanize religion, but also to moralize it. Gandhi’s interpretation of Hinduism, Islam, and Christianity made his religion a federation of different religious faiths.

  when Stanley Jones, a missionary met with Gandhi he asked him:

Mr. Gandhi, though you quote the words of Christ often, why is that you appear to so adamantly reject becoming his follower?

Gandhi replied:

Oh, I don’t reject Christ. I love Christ. It’s just that so many of you Christians are so unlike Christ

As for as this blogger is concerned ,  esteemed viewers would  have observed that he is  a UNIVERSALIST!

I normally say and write that I am an Indian first and Indian last!

But I am  very proud of having been born  as a Hindu in my  holy Motherland-India that is Bharat. Our Motherland is secular and accommodates the followers of all religions and provides facilities for following their respective religions.Mahatma Gandhi fought against the British unitedly inspiring the entire Indian society secured FREEDOM for us. I am very seriuos in knowing about all existing religions  in my homeland and today’s SUNDAY story is a part of my learning exercise!

Today the Eighth September is the birth day of VIRGIN MARY Mother of Jesus Christ.

We can’t know for certain when was born the Mother of God, of course, but for almost 15 centuries now, Catholics have celebrated the Virgin Mary’s birthday on September 8, the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Why September 8?

Christians normally celebrate the day on which saints died, because that is when they entered into eternal life. And indeed, Catholics and Orthodox celebrate the end of Mary’s life in the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (known as the Dormition of the Theotokos in the Eastern Catholic and Orthodox Churches). But they also celebrate three birthdays, and Mary’s is one of them. The other two are the births of Christ and Saint John the Baptist, and the common thread tying these feasts together is that all three—Mary, Jesus, and Saint John—were born without Original Sin.

An Important Event in Salvation History

In earlier centuries, the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary was celebrated with greater fanfare;  But, like the Immaculate Conception, the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is an important date in the salvation history. Christ needed a mother, and Mary’s conception and birth, therefore, are events without which Christ’s own birth would have been impossible.

It’s no surprise, then, that the Christians of the second century A.D. recorded the details of Mary’s birth in such documents as the Protoevangelium of James and the Gospel of the Nativity of Mary. While neither document bears the authority of Scripture, they provide  everything that we know about the life of Mary before the Annunciation, including the names of Saint Mary’s parents, Saint Joachim and Saint Anna (or Anne). It’s a good example of Tradition, which complements (while never contradicting) Scripture.
Thus comes to an end this Sunday Story(Inputs thanks to GOOGLE GURU!)
and we shall meet tomorrow as our practice with the next post.Till then GOOD BYE!
Virgin Mary

This is  the song for the occasion:

17th March Saint Patrick Day

 

Image result for Images for St. Patrick's Day

World without religion is dead wood and religion without the world is soul-less!

What is Religion?

While religion is hard to define, one standard model of religion, used in religious studies courses, was proposed by Clifford Geertz, who defined it as a

“system of symbols which acts to establish powerful, pervasive, and long-lasting moods and motivations in men by formulating conceptions of a general order of existence and clothing these conceptions with such an aura of factuality that the moods and motivations seem uniquely realistic.”

A critique categorized religion as “an anthropological category.” Many religions have  narratives, symbols,traditions      to give meaning to life  or to explain the       origin of life or the universe. They tend to derive morality, ethics,religious laws , or a preferred  life style from their ideas about the cosmos  and human nature. According to some estimates, there are about 4,200 religions in the world.

Major Religions in the World:

There are twelve classical world religions—those religions most often included in history of world religion surveys and studied in world religions classes: Baha’i, Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Shinto, Sikhism, Taoism, and Zoroastrianism.

ADI SANKARA ON HINDUISM
Adi Shankara was an early 8th century Indian philosopher and theologian who consolidated the doctrine of  Advaita Vedanta. He is credited with unifying and establishing the main currents of thought in    Hinduism.

His works in    Sanskrit discuss the unity of the ātman and Nirguna  Brahman  “brahman without attributes”. He wrote copious commentaries on the Vedic canon (  Brahma Sutras  , principal  Upanishads  and  Bagwat Geeta ) in support of his thesis. His works elaborate on ideas found in the Upanishads. Shankara’s publications criticised the ritually-oriented Mīmāṃsā school of Hinduism. He also explained the key difference between Hinduism and Buddhism, stating that Hinduism asserts “Atman (Soul, Self) exists”, while Buddhism asserts that there is “no Soul, no Self”.

Shankara travelled across the Indian subcontinent to propagate his philosophy through discourses and debates with other thinkers. He established the importance of monastic life as sanctioned in the Upanishads and Brahma Sutra, in a time when the Mīmāṃsā school established strict ritualism and ridiculed monasticism. He is reputed to have founded four mathas (“monasteries”), which helped in the historical development, revival and spread of Advaita Vedanta of which he is known as the greatest revivalist. Adi Shankara is believed to be the organizer of the Dashanami monastic order and unified the Shanmata tradition of worship. He is also known as Adi Shankaracharya, Shankara Bhagavatpada.

Likewise every religion major or minor has its own Saints and Seers and 17th March being St.Patricks today’s Sunday Story is on him.

It’s 17th March  one of the most celebrated festivals in Ireland – St. Patrick’s Day. The St. Patrick’s Day is also known as a three-leaved festival because St. Patrick used to explain Holy Trinity to pagan Irish with the help of three leaves.

Patrick was a 5th-century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. His father was a deacon and his grandfather was a priest in the Christian church. According to tradition, Patrick returned to Ireland to convert the pagan Irish to Christianity.

How do we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day…?

India is a festive country. It has a festival of colors, festival of lamps and firecrackers, festival of kites, festival of dance, a festival of the boat race, etc. but  it is always  open to foreign festivals. We always love to adopt new cultures and celebrate life as much as we can.

For many years, we have been celebrating Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving as well as St. Patrick.

Wearing something green: As per tradition, people wear something green. All the corporate offices, who are known to this festival, wear green, especially companies dealing with Canada, USA and Ireland. The one who does not wear green gets pinched.

 

Click pictures: Click pictures: Clicking pictures and uploading them on social media is a must activity in India. No matter what is celebrated, clicking photos, taking videos, etc is a must.

The decoration of workplace: The workplace is decorated with green. It is decorated with green balloons, ribbons, and other decoration which makes the office look beautiful and green. People also keep something green on their desk like leaves or petals or paper cuts.

A parade like dancing: Here actual parade is not done but instead, people sing and dance and enjoy like parade. Some offices also have DJ parties which relaxed people from hectic schedule and participate in co-curricular activities. Also, some offices take their employees to church to pray to celebrate this fest in a religious way.

Food: Different offices have different ways with their food. Some believe in having green food and juices while some go out for lunch or dinner. The Indians are quite a foodie and St. Patrick is a perfect celebration and excuse to eat healthy and yummy food. Some also drink green drinks which range from Green smoothies to bottle-guard juice to honey-mint cocktails.

We are enthusiasts and eager and curious souls. These festivals allow us to pour ourr enthusiasm out during this period. So St. Patrick is not limited to Ireland or Canada or USA, it’s for India too.

 

Saint Patrick

Patrick was a 5th-century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. Much of what is known about Saint Patrick comes from the Declaration, which was allegedly written by Patrick himself. It is believed that he was born in Roman Britain in the fourth century, into a wealthy Romano-British family. His father was a deacon and his grandfather was a priest in the Christian church. According to the Declaration, at the age of sixteen, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and taken as a slave to Gaelic Ireland. It says that he spent six years there working as a shepherd and that during this time he “found God”. The Declaration says that God told Patrick to flee to the coast, where a ship would be waiting to take him home. After making his way home, Patrick went on to become a priest.

According to tradition, Patrick returned to Ireland to convert the pagan Irish to Christianity. The Declaration says that he spent many years evangelizing in the northern half of Ireland and converted “thousands”. Patrick’s efforts against the druids were eventually turned into an allegory in which he drove “snakes” out of Ireland (Ireland never had any snakes).

Tradition holds that he died on 17 March and was buried at Downpatrick.

Today it is March 17th Saint Patrics Day and I am sure , my esteemed viewers would have found this post quite interesting and informative. Let us invoke the grace and blessings of St. Patrick  for universal welfare.  I am  proud to be an UNIVERSALIST and I use to tell my good friends that I am for Andavar, Palani Andavar and Nagore Andavar!

We shall meet tomorrow with our usual post.Till then GOOD BYE!
