Dear Brothers and sisters in Christ,

All the Christian denominations coming together, leaving aside their differences, believes, traditions and liturgy is indeed a Christian unity but in its narrowest sense. There can be unity in diversity. 

 1.   The Church
We need to realize the real meaning of Church before we think about the unity of different churches. The Church is the body of Christ and it is Christ Himself who is the head of the Body, the Church (Col 1:18). The Scripture says, ‘All of us, whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free, have been baptized in one Spirit to form one body and all of us have been given to drink from the one Spirit’ (I Cor 12:13). Further, St. Paul in his letter to the Ephesians says, ‘Let there be one Body and one Spirit, just as you were called, One Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God, the Father of all, who is above all and works through all and is in all’ (Eph 4:4-6). He continues to say, ‘See, the body is one even if formed by many members, but not all of them with the same function’ (Rom 12:4).

The words of St. Paul state a fact that everyone who calls himself/herself a Christian is indeed a part of the mystical of Body of Christ. 

2. Divisions in the Church
Though we are spiritually One, there is division among our midst. The annals of history bears the bitter truth that we have divided the Church, the Mystical Body of Christ. We imprison Christ in our churches and gloat over the monopoly of Christ. We hold our churches in highest esteem and look down on other churches.

3.The need for unity among the churches
There is only one CHURCH, the Church of Christ, the Mystical Body of Christ. Every member of this Church must be knit together in love. Christ Himself prayed for the unity of this Church, ‘May they all be one as you Father are in me and I am in you. May they be one in us; so the world may believe that you have sent me’ (Jh 17:21) St. Paul in his letter to the Ephesians instructs the faithful to be united, ‘Make every effort to keep among you the unity of Spirit through the bond of peace’ (Eph 4:3). He further instructs that ‘every apostle, prophet, evangelists, pastors and teachers must build up the Body of Christ until we are all united in the same faith and knowledge of the Son of God. Thus we shall become the perfect man, reaching maturity with the fullness of Christ’ (Eph 4:13)  

4. The Goal of unity among the churches
The goal of unity among the churches is the glory of God. Our Lord Jesus instituted the Church that we may glorify the Lord together as a family and inherit the Kingdom of God. Only when we live together as the members of the Mystical Body of Christ, knit together in love we can glorify God as Christ wants. ‘May God, the source of all perseverance and comfort, grant you to live in peace with one another in accordance with Christ Jesus, so that you may be able to praise in one voice the God and Father of Christ Jesus our Lord’ (Rom 15:5-7).

5.  Humility and Love : essential elements for unity among the churches
There can never be unity among the churches unless there is humility and love. When the people are knit together in love, we can establish unity even when there are differences. At the same time, in the absence of love and unity there can never be peace and unity. Lord Jesus, being fully human and God, realizing our weakness gave us a new law, ‘A new commandment I give you, love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are disciples, if you have love for one another’ (Jh 13:34-35)

There can never be true love unless there is humility. The presence of pride is the seed of jealousy and selfishness. In addition, St. Paul about love says, ‘Love is patient, kind, without envy. It is not boastful or arrogant. It is not ill mannered nor does not provoked to anger; keeps no score of offences. It does not take delight in wrong, but rejoices in truth’ (1 Cor 13:4-7).

For the unity, it is essential that we realize the fact that Church is the Mystical Body of Christ. and division of this Mystical Body of Christ is sin. Let us be prayerful and listen to the inspirations of the Holy Spirit. Let us wrap ourselves with the values of humility and love and live a life in accordance with the commandment of Our Lord, the commandment of Love.

Edward Saldanha, the Parish Priest took a lot of effort to organize this gathering. 48 youth of our parish participated in this gathering. The gathering began with Holy Mass presided by Rev. Fr. Cornelius Tigga, S.J.

Rev. Fr. Cornelius Tigga, Mr. Tony Castleton and Sr. Reshmi were spoke persons for the Day.
Rev. Fr. Cornelius focused on need of Youth in the Church. He said that today’s youth are lost in themselves. Digital media has taken the place of a friend. Today’s youth need to have friends, they need to share their problems and find solution. He encouraged them to come forward and to be united in order to help our Church and to make a peaceful society. He said that all of us have an opportunity to grow but many of us loose it. We have to grab the opportunity in order to learn and grow. Mr. Tony Castleton challenged the youth to take courage and stand up for self-needs. He encouraged them to equip with different types of talents and become self-depended. He gave them the Mantra – ‘Discipline yourselves and discipline will make your personality hundred percentage.’  Our God comes in search of us, we need to walk with God and offer ourselves to Him and He will do wonders in our lives. Sr. Reshmi appealed the youth to read and know the Bible. She encouraged them to listen to their inner voice and come forward to live a religious life.

Rev. Fr. Edward Saldanha thanked each and everyone for making the youth gathering successful. He encouraged the youth to bring many more youth to join this group. All agreed to have next meeting on 25th February to elect the executive committee. The gathering ended with a delicious meal. (Dn. Shanti Raj)

Farmer’s Fair cum  Exhibition at Anandpur Block

India is mainly an agricultural country. Agriculture is the most important occupation for most of the Indian families. In India, agriculture contributes about sixteen percent (16%) of total GDP and ten percent (10%) of total exports. Our farmers work day and night to feed our population that counts over 1.21 billion.

But most of the times the hard work of the farmers and their products go unnoticed, we fail to appreciate and acknowledge their untiring efforts that they put in the field. Therefore the Catholic Charities organized a fdlku esayk cum Exhibition  on 25th, January in the premises of Anandpur block. The main objective of the Fair was to bring the farmers together, exhibit their products and to interact with the government officials. Mrs. Jobha Manjhi the MLA of Manoherpur was the chief guest, who in her speech highlighted the different schemes and scientific methods of cultivation. She was very happy to see so many farmers present. Fr. Alwin electrified the gathering with his thought provoking speech on kitchen garden and organic farming. There were 210 farmers and 68 farmers came with their products to exhibit. On this occasion 5 pump sets were given to five farmers by Block Agriculture officer Mr. Amarnath Nayak.

Peace be with you

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, 

I wish everyone a Happy and Prosperous New Year! May God bless you with His Peace and Love in this New Year.

On the night Christ was born, an angel appeared to the shepherds and gave a message of great joy, “Glory to God in the Highest and Peace to people of Good Will”.  Jesus is the Prince of Peace and He came to the world that we may have peace. Peace is not a commodity that can be purchased. Peace can be obtained only when we have love and justice. Peace is inseparable from love and justice. And Jesus is the personification of Love, Peace and Justice. The person rooted in love and justice is a righteous person. And it is to those who are righteous the Lord offers the gift of Peace. In the annals of history, both ecclesiastical and political, we find many great persons whom we call righteous; Mahatma Gandhi and Mother Theresa are few among them.      

Love, Peace and Justice are the very characteristics of God Himself. Because it is in God alone we find eternal Love, Peace and Justice. Every human being is created in the very image and likeness of God; all of us share these very divine characteristics of God in us. It is the will of God that every human being use these spiritual gifts that have been infused in us and find eternal happiness in the Lord. 

God in His infinite wisdom created human being that He may share with us His divine love. He is brimming with love for every one whom He created. Since we are the partakers of His divine love by our existence, it is very logical that we share this love with our brethren. The pinnacle of the expression of love is seen in the life of Christ; there is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for his/her friends. Every human being needs to realize that we are children of One God and we share a relationship thicker than blood; the relationship based on life itself. Hence, it is our duty to love and respect our brethren. The love of the neighbour stems from this concept.   
Respecting the other person is different from adjusting with them. The real respect is rooted in accepting the other person as he or she is. When one accepts the other person as he or she is, one tends to accept others’ beliefs and life style, even when one do not really agree with it. Just like, different varieties of flowers make a garden more beautiful, people with different beliefs and life-styles living together in unity makes the earth a paradise on the earth. It is in unity we find our strength and not in uniformity. When we fail in our efforts to be righteous, we fail in our ability to live in peace. The moment we shun the other for what they are… we start spreading the seed of disharmony.

What do we see around us ? Is there peace and harmony or hatred and chaos ? Are we heading towards a society where everyone is respected ? … The answers often disappoint us. We live in a society where uniformity is endorsed more than unity. Every person is identified with his or her attributes rather than the person himself or herself. Religion, social status and political affiliation have become the yardstick for the dignity of a person. Moreover, personal freedom is curtailed in the name of progress and unification. How can there be progress when the personal attributes like cast and creed are hailed above human dignity ? How can there be peace when unity is corroded by the custodians of our society ?

It is more than ever, we need to be righteous. We need to love and respect everyone for what they are. Let us enkindle in us the need to be united, despite caste and creed, language and land. Let us realize that we all are the children of One God. Let us follow Jesus, our brother and love everyone. Above all, let us pray; for “More things are wrought by prayer than the world ever dreams of”.    

May the Prince of Peace bless you with His love, peace and justice.  May you try every day to better yourself to be righteous.  Moreover, May you become the instruments of His Peace!

Your Friend and Servant in Christ,

+Felix Toppo, S.J
Bishop of Jamshedpur

Indian Vice President praises Christians: "They build the nation".

The Indian vice president has praised the Catholic Church for "its efforts to build the nation and for the altruistic service rendered to the members of society". Venkaiah Naidu participated as a guest of honour at the Christmas greetings ceremony. Organized by the Indian Bishops' Conference (CBCI), the event took place on 13th December, 2017 at the center of the archdiocesan community of Delhi. The second highest representative of the State affirmed that "Jesus is the Son of God. He brings Good news to all seasons, peoples, cultures and nations. His message is the message of peace.

If there is tension, we cannot have attention to any activities of peace". Naidu emphasized that "people, in every part of the world, regardless of caste, creed or nationality, celebrate Christmas with great joy ". Then he reaffirmed the importance of Catholics for the development of India, "in particular for the well-being of the people. They manage the best educational institutions in the country, which create awareness of the need for education and training for those in need ".
According to the Vice President, “Education is the most important tool for social transformation. It helps impart values compassion, morality and ethics,”. For this reason, he added, "I invite you Christians to continue in your service with special attention to the disadvantaged sectors of society".

We also operate in more than 5,000 registered NGOs, which take care of the primary needs of over five million poor and marginalized every year ".
