FROM OUR VICAR
Dear friends In Christ,
Warm Greetings in the precious name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!!!
Once again we are in a time of trouble. The second wave of the pandemic Covid’19 is devastating our country like anything. News that is coming is not that good, rather it is frightening. It shows how horrendous the situation is, which our country is passing through. Today when I am preparing this message, India’s corona virus death toll has crossed 2, 50,000. The second phase of this pandemic is more deadly than the first. As the pandemic rampages through our country, it leaves families to weep over the dead, both rural and urban Hospitals are inundated with patients. In many hospitals in our country, there are scarcity of beds, drugs, Oxygen, and ventilators. Our nation, world’s second-most populous country is literally standing spell-bound before this deadly pestilence. The present situation seems to be beyond our control. When the situation becomes overwhelming or when we feel we are trapped and when the future seems likely to be obscure, where should we knock for help? There is only one place to look for help, which is the presence of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. The Holy Bible says, “THE NAME OF THE LORD IS A STRONG TOWER. THE RIGHTEOUS MAN RUNS INTO IT AND IS SAFE” (proverbs: 18:10)
