My dear brothers and sisters, I am confidently able to say that truly ‘I am the chosen one’. As the word tells, “You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, in order that you may proclaim the mighty acts of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” – 1 Peter 2:9
Jesus tells us a parable about the wedding banquet, where the King sends his slaves to call all the invited guests. But none of the guests took the invitation seriously and refuse to attend the banquet. The King was enraged and sent his slaves again to call all those who were on the streets, both good and bad; so the wedding hall was filled with guests. But the King noticed a man who was not wearing a wedding robe. So he was bound and thrown into the outer darkness - Matthew. 22:1-13. Though this parable, Jesus explains that “Many are called, but few are chosen.” – Matthew. 22:14.
“The Lord himself will give you a sign. Look, the young woman is with child and shall bear a son, and shall name him Immanuel.” – Isaiah. 7:14. This prophecy of Isaiah has come true in the life of Mother Mary when the angel Gabriel appeared to her and said, “And now, you will conceive in your womb and bear a Son, and you will name him Jesus” – Luke. 1:31. Thus, the virgin conceived and bore a son and named him Emmanuel, which means, “God is with us” – Matthew. 1:23.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” – John. 1:1. “And this Word became flesh and lived among us.” – John. 1:14.
Most of us think worldly wisdom has more weight & value. Today science provides new gadgets and inventions everyday which attract the minds of young and even the older ones. Parents like to educate their children to the maximum for which they are ready to spend any amount of money. Mostly to acquire status in the society, good future and good job. But happiness does not come from our education, position, power or money. True happiness comes from the DIVINE WISDOM. Word of God tells us “Happy are those who find wisdom and those who get understanding for her income is better than silver. She is more precious than jewels and nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life in her right hand, in her left hand are riches and honour. Her ways are ways of pleasantness and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her. Those who hold her fast are called happy” (Prov. 3:13-18)
A great multitude of people gathered at Divine Community Centre, Kenchankere, Mulki on 1st December 2012, to celebrate the 2nd Anniversary of Divine Mission Society. Five anointed servants of God shared the Word of God from morning 8.00 am to 4.00 pm. It was a festival of Divine Word. All the people were blessed and received God’s grace in abundance. People present were really filled with God’s Love and were deeply enriched by the Word of God. The celebration ended with the Holy Eucharist and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. The presence of God’s spirit was greatly felt all throughout the day. Indeed it was a Blessed Day.

Spirit of wisdom have control over me,
Keep me from distractions while I do God's will,
When trials come I will stand still,
For you are my refuge in the times of evil.
Let my whole body glorify my God,
With all my substances I will magnify my Lord,
I will bless the Lord with all my heart,
I will stand at his court writing and singing new songs.
Spirit of God you are my friend,
A very help in times of need,
I want you in every work which I undertake,
So that I may do only what is God's will is.
Sanctify my soul with your fire,
Take away from me all who are liars,
Let your glory shine in every corners of my life,
And my mouth will shout only the joyous cry.

When we are dead,
We sleep on bed,
Where worms are our friend,
This all our soul won't care.
We go to sleep,
Where we can't feel,
What the world is doing,
What the world is thinking.
Our God laughs sitting in the heaven
When people being so foolish,
Praying for their dead fellow's spirit,
This is of no use please understand ye people.
After death there is no chance,
To reconcile, to repent and to be get cleansed.
This life is unique, which God have gifted us.
Live it to get more closer to Christ Jesus, the way towards our Heavenly Father
Pray for those who are dead,
Dead in the sense who are slaves serving this evil world,
Pray that may God save their soul,
So that while living they may gain that eternal abode.
