God will Save America from the horrible Hurricane Irene.

The devastating hurricane that is hitting America is very horrible. About 2.5 million people are ordered to evacuate as hurricane 'Irene' continues to spread fears in coastal cities. All five major airports in New York City area are closed for incoming flights.

New Jersey, New York, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia and Delaware are the cities that are under the grip of fear most.

We whole-heartedly pray for all those who are affected by this hurricane to the Almighty Lord, Jesus Christ, Who commanded the storm and the sea to be calm and made them obey. He alone is the Master of the Universe and all in it.

At the same time, when we are safe and sound, we must never forget the Merciful Lord, Who has commanded His Angels to protect and safe-guard us. Always be thankful to HIM.

So, dear brethren, do not lose heart, keep your hope in the Good Lord, Who alone can save all the human kind...!

Vandals set fire to Malankara Church Altar in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh

The most unfortunate incident of setting on fire the Altar of the Mother Mary Malankara Catholic Church by unidentified vandals took place on Thursday (Aug 25, 2011)near Krupanand Hall at Ganesh Colony in Picket of Secunderabad . They even burnt copies of the Bible, Cross, hymn books, Mass clothes and other holy ornaments.

A similar incident was witnessed by the same Church some four years ago. Activists of Hindu extremist group called, Bajrang Dal, had then attacked the Priest and damaged the Church property.

Father Felix, the Parish Priest and the elders of the Church registered a complaint with the police and the police has set up a picket, to curb further untoward incidents, though no arrests have been made so far.

People should isolate any miscreant group or sect that disrupts the communal harmony.

After 64th Independence Day, Anna Hazare -2nd Gandhian arrested by 'Indians'...!

Yesterday the 65th Day of Indian Independence was celebrated through out the nook and corners of India, with great pomp and gaiety. But the arrest and detention of 'Anna Hazare' one of the very few Gandhians living in the country, fighting to liberate India from the anti-Indians, who rule it and robe it, on the very next day itself, is very unfortunate.

We saw a lot of untoward and unpleasant incidents, violence, arson and riots that shook Great Briton last week. But not learning anything from another's experience is stubbornness. It is high time for the Indian politicians and the government to learn lessons and act accordingly, before it is too late and goes beyond the control.

The government is elected by the majority of the voters, with the expectation and hope that, the elected representatives would remember always that it is the people that elected them, and they should not loot or sell or betray their mother land, but should strive to take such a wonderful country with great reputation and wealth, to prosperity and growth.

When all the leaders, departments and machinery that are responsible for checking and eliminating corruption are not functioning properly, ultimately the 'majority' 'passive people' who do not have any affiliation with any political parties or persons, lose their patience and resort to violence which may be very difficult to be controlled.

Dear Government, don't be deaf and blind, act swiftly and put a full stop to 'corruption' without any fear or 'soft corner' or 'grudge' and you can regain all your lost glory....!

Unfortunate London Riots spreading to other cities of UK. What is the reason for UK riots?

The riots that spread out in the great London city in England recently is quite unfortunate. It is a cause of concern to understand that it is now spreading to other cities also. Beautiful and elegent London city which is situated in the middle of the whole earth enjoys a high place of reputation for its peace, tranquility and riches of all types.

Even the Government of such a city and a country is facing the ire of the desperate people. It should be an eye-opener to all the Governments of the world. If the steps and policies taken by the political people who rule a state or country, are against the wishes of the majority, such riots, violence, looting and arsen would take place and the people may be forced to the law into their hands...!

Social uprising, racial tension and the policies of the coalition government are all the major reasons of the riots.

Any how a Christian, while seeing all these things happen, should remember the Holy Words of the Lord, said two thousand years ago and Pray to the Lord to make him eligible to 'stand with the head raised to face the Lord who is going to come soon'...! (Mark 13: 8 & 12)

Let us all whole heartedly pray for Peace to prevail and harmonious life of people in all the countries.

Mr A.K Antony and a Gospel Verse, Matt 5:5...!

Shri Arackaparambil Kurien Antony (Mr A.K Anthony), the Defense Minister of India, reminds me of the Holy Bible verse Matt 5:5, "Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth"

Any one who is aware of the political happenings of Kerala back to some years, probably a decade, may feel the same as I do. When Mr A.K Antony was the Chief minister of Kerala, he had to face non-stop unreasonable criticism from the opposition (LDF- the Communist parties) and another group(s) of his own party, the Indian National Congress.

Though he was honest and loyal to the highest esteem, he exercised the virtue of being 'meek and patient' many a times and for this reason alone many of his own supporters criticized him for keeping silence on his attackers. But time proved the Holy Verses coming true. Later he is elevated to one of the most important ministries of India and today he is appointed as a core committee member of Congress party by the high command, the highest position in the party, and of course one of the most powerful position in the land.

Where are those who ceaselessly attacked him being in his own party then...?
They are nowhere...! They have lost their positions, power, goodwill, reputation... even the people who supported them blindly...!

So any one can remember this Holy Verse Matt 5:5, "Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth"

What do you think?

JUSTICE N. SANTOSH HEGDE, Lokayukta of Karnataka State, must be given special protection and awards

It was a breaking news: the fact findings of Karnataka Lokayuktha, Justice Santhosh Hegde made the corrupt chief minister of Karnataka to resign after a lot of prolonged struggle and high drama...! Justice Santhosh Hegde deserves praise for his courageous action without any fear of the powerful. He must be taken as an example by those who have authority and responsibility to fight against corruption and injustices.

When the politicians who are elected and entrusted the powers to govern and safeguard a state or country, behave in such a way, and betray the interests of the people or state or country, they should be prosecuted without any mercy or partiality and should be granted the stringent punishment more than a citizen, who commits the same crime.

I feel these unclean but mighty corrupt politicians will not forget their anger on sincere and honest people like Mr. Santhosh Hegde, and they will not waste any chance to take revenge on such people, who are always a threat to corrupt politicians...!

Hence the Government of India should give suitable protection to the lives and properties of such people, considering them as national assets, before some untoward incident occurs, as usual...!
