Vicar's Message! - April 2019

FROM THE DESK OF VEN JAYANTH JEYAVEERASINGAN

My dear people of God of the church and the community,

Let me take this opportunity to wish all Sri Lankans a blessed Aluth Avurudu!


At this time, when we ponder on the life of Christ and his mind, may we imitate Him and have HIS mind in ours.


As we celebrate Lent and enter the portals of Easter, it is very good for us to meditate upon the humility and obedience of Christ as in Phillipians 2:8. Let us ponder upon that in 10 points:

  • 1) Jesus humbles himself to take care of us (Psalm 113:5-6)

  • 2) He humbly obeys the parent God to be a part of his earthly parents (Luke 2: 51-52)

  • 3) He lived a very simple, humble life (Luke 9:58)

  • 4) He humbled himself and obeyed his Father to serve us (Mark10:45)

  • 5) He humbled himself to be tortured for our sakes (Philippians 2:8)

  • 6) He humbled himself to forgive those who abused him (Luke 23:34-35)

  • 7) He humbled himself and received false accusations against him (Isaiah 53:9)

  • 8) He humbled himself to carry our burdens (Matthew 11:29)

  • 9) He humbed himself and obeyed his Father to wash the feet of his disciples (John 13:5)

  • 10) He humbled himself to cry with peoples’ pain (e.g. He wept with the sisters of Lazarus, John 11:35)

At this time, when we ponder on the life of Christ and his mind, may we imitate Him and have HIS mind in ours.


Yours sincerely
With prayers and blessings

Fr Jayanth
