*രാജാവിന് നാല് ഭാര്യമാരുണ്ടായിരുന്നു.*

നാലാമത്തവളോട് രാജാവിന് ഭ്രാന്തമായ സ്നേഹമായിരുന്നു.

അവളെ തൃപ്തിപ്പെടുത്താനായി സാധ്യമായതെല്ലാം അയാൾ ചെയ്യുമായിരുന്നു.

മൂന്നാമത്തവളെയും രാജാവിന് സ്നേഹമായിരുന്നു. പക്ഷെ, അവൾ മറ്റുള്ളവർക്ക് വേണ്ടി തന്നെ ഉപേക്ഷിച്ചു പോകുമെന്നായിരുന്നു രാജാവിന്റെ ബലമായ സംശയം.

രണ്ടാമത്തെ ഭാര്യ രാജാവിന് വിഷമഘട്ടങ്ങളിൽ ഓടിച്ചെല്ലാനുള്ള ഇടമായിരുന്നു. അയാളുടെ സങ്കടങ്ങൾ കേട്ട് അവൾ ആശ്വസിപ്പിക്കുമായിരുന്നു.

ഒന്നാം ഭാര്യ രാജാവിനെ ഒട്ടേറെ… Continue

With the Fire of the Spirit. Jan 13, 2017

With the Fire of the Spirit............

The  early Christian communities took pains to carefully differentiate the baptism of John that dipped people in the waters of the Jordan and the baptism of Jesus that communicated his Spirit in order to cleanse, renew, and transform the hearts of his followers. Without that Spirit of Jesus, the Church grows dull and vanishes.

Only the Spirit of Jesus can…

St. Joseph of Cupertino

St. Joseph was born in 1603 at Cupertino, in the diocese of Nardo in the Kingdom of Naples. After spending his childhood and adolescence in simplicity and innocence, he finally joined the Franciscan Friars Minor Conventual. After his ordination to the holy priesthood, he gave himself up entirely to a life of devotion to the Lord and his church. His deep devotional life led him to the kind of holiness which is forged through humility, voluntary mortification, and obedience. He was consecrated…

The Power of Rosary

The Power of Rosary

“Whatever you do, do not be like a certain pious but stubborn lady in Rome, so often mentioned when speaking about the Rosary.

She was so devout and so fervent that she put to shame by her holy life even the strictest religious in the Church.

Ten stories to watch in 2017 BY POPE FRANCIS

1) Dubia drama When Pope Francis released Amoris Laetitia, his apostolic exhortation on the family, last April the reaction was relatively muted. But as sharply divergent readings of the text emerged, a group of four cardinals submitted five dubia, or “doubts”, to the Pope. Cardinal Burke, the most vocal signatory, says the cardinals will issue a “formal act of correction” if they receive no reply. This is a dramatic development that threatens to destabilise this pontificate…

Complaining to God is a way of praying. Pope Francis. Jan 4, 2017

Complaining to God is a way of praying......

In his catechesis, the pope spoke about the example of Abraham. This patriarch believed in God’s promise that he would have a child, even though he was very old, and his wife was infertile.  Time went by and the promise didn’t come true, so Abraham complained to God. 

The pope says this is a good example because being faithful doesn’t mean that one…

Why Do Some Go To Hell If God Loves Them?

There are a few things we must understand about the nature of God, the nature of humans, and our relationship with God.

  • God is the source of all good.  God does not create evil (which isn't really a "thing", but rather an absence of a good).  
  • God cannot act in a way that is not good (evil).
  • God allows humans to choose to do good or evil.  We have free will.  It is possible to reject God's…

പുതുവർഷത്തിനായി ഒരുങ്ങാം

ജീവിതവൃക്ഷത്തിന്റെ ഒരിലകൂടി കൊഴിയുകയാണ്, ഒപ്പം 2017 എന്ന വർഷാവസന്തം വിരിയുകയാണ്.

ഹൃദയം നന്ദികൊണ്ടു നിറയേണ്ട നിമിഷങ്ങളാണിത്. കഴിഞ്ഞുപോയ വർഷത്തിൽ ദൈവം നമ്മിലേക്ക് ചൊരിഞ്ഞ അനുഗ്രഹങ്ങൾ അപകടങ്ങളിൽ നിന്നും കാത്ത അനുഭവങ്ങൾ ഒക്കെ നന്ദിയോടെ നമുക്ക് ഓർക്കാം . ഓരോ നിമിഷവും നമ്മെ സംരക്ഷിക്കുന്ന ദൈവപരിപാലനയുടെ തണലിലാണ് നാം ജീവിക്കുന്നത് എന്ന സത്യം പുതുവർഷത്തിന്റെ ആരംഭത്തിൽ തന്നെ…
