VIRGIN MARY’S BIRTH DAY- September 8th

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:

அருள்தாரும் தேவமாதா

அனைத்து மக்களின் உள்ளங்களையும் கொள்ளை கொண்ட
1948 ல் வெளிவந்த ஞான சௌந்தரி திரைப்பட பாடல்!
அருள்தாரும் தேவமாதாவே
ஆதியே இன்ப ஜோதியே..
ஆதியே இன்ப ஜோதியே…..

Robert Browning who wrote GRAMMARIAN’S FUNERAL

 

Robert Browning and his Grammarian’s funeral are indeed great
“On the earth the broken arcs; in the heaven, a perfect round.”
The line I like most as it has given me the vision for life.
” AIM HIGH, ACHIEVE HIGH” I used this thousands of time to motivate all!

The POET says:

That low man seeks a little thing to do,
Sees it and does it.
This high man, with a great thing to pursue,
Dies ere he knows it.

That low man goes on adding one to one,—
His hundred’s soon hit;
This high man, aiming at a million,
Misses an unit.
That has the world here—should he need the next,
Let the world mind him!
This throws himself on God, and unperplexed
Seeking shall find him.

Let us aim at a million- no matter we miss by an unit
A place in heaven is sure for me as my aim was high
ON THE EARTH THE BROKEN ARCS; IN THE HEAVEN A PERFECT ROUND
‘Aiming high and missing’ better than ‘aiming low and achieving’-joy unbound!

Holy land-India that is Bharath, my MOTHERLAND
Taught me about the Universal family-“VASU
DEYVA KUTUMBAKAM”-the whole world my family great!
Tamil vedas will say” every place is my home and
all are my kith and kin”-noble theme of world family!

Pity the universal family gave place to joint families
Joint family gave place to individual family
Individual family gave place to nucleus family !
Today at the height of selfishness me, my wife and children alone
Make my family! Not to talk of International family!

International Day of Families is today the
Fifteenth May with the theme “Families and inclusive societies”.
No family can be peaceful sans harmonious relationship tall
On this holy day let us promote harmony and peace with all!
