    PARISH OF ST. JOSEPH March 13, 2016

    From the Desk of Fr. Philip Kollithanath As Catholics we have to acquire peace and a zeal for perfection. Lent is the best time to focus on this and improve the habit. Many a time our lives are controlled by the psychological concern, what will others think. This is very true even with gown up adults. Spiritual maturity will liberate and empower us to be in charge of our lives. To enjoy peace of mind one should abstain from meddling in others affairs, avoid seeking strange distractions, maintain a certain level of inward recollection. Blessed are the simple of heart for they shall enjoy peace in abundance.

    The secret of the perfection of saints is good example for us. They tried to mortify all their earthly desires and were able to attach themselves to God with all their heart. This enabled them to freely concentrate their innermost thoughts.

    In contrast, we are too occupied with our whims and fancies and interest in passing things. Rarely we conquer our vices. There is a lack of interest in holiness. We remain cold and indifferent. To enjoy divine things, we have to mortify our bodies and avoid distractions.

    The greatest obstacle to our holiness is that we are not free from our passions and lusts. We are easily dejected and turn to human consolations. We have to develop the habit of depending on God for everything. We can eventually feel Gods power leading us to victory. We must be careful not to find satisfaction in external rituals alone. All religious activities should lead us closer to God and experience the joy He alone can give. Every worship should help us keep our minds open to growing more into the divine love. Then we will be free from our passions and have peace of mind. We must focus on bridling our passions and removing our vices. It takes hard labor to establish productive and positive habits. But once established we would be proud of it. It is hard to break old habits but harder to go against our will.

    In this age they do not want to talk about right or wrong. Likes and dislikes dominate lives. The greed to enjoy is promot-ed by the world. It will be a while to realize that all these enjoyments will not give any lasting joy. Lasting joy comes from growing in the sense of holy. This happens when we try to eliminate evil habits and promote spiritual life through devo-tional activities. We learn to live in the presence of God all the time. That will caution us against the evils of the world. The more we try that the more we find peace of mind and success in life.

    God bless you all.
