It’s indeed very heartening to see our really thoughtful and concerned Columnists – Pamplanil & Valson – are applying their minds very seriously to find the correct solution to parading or victimizing their organized religions!

Last ditch Effort?

Our esteemed  Pamplanil, it looks is making a last ditch  effort in his 80-ies, without claiming to be pontifical in giving his analysis  to settle all issues, but accepting to be fallible like all else! After all, “CHANGE”, yes constant change as advocated by Cardinal Newman, is now accepted even by the Catholic Church as the New-Normal: “Church is to be reformed through constant change!”

In the process Pamplanil is countering our another illustrious columnist, Valson Thampu, giving his reasoning: Facts-above-Faith! Valson instead goes to the extreme of humbly apologizing our Muslim brothers for the apparent offense heaped upon them. Which ought to be the right stand,  via media or the New-normal? For the benefit of our readers, Valson may perhaps come out with his clarifications for his stand, his public apology to Mulism brothers!

Sudden spurt of skul caps & burqua

To drive home his point, Pamplanil compares Christian and Muslim practices. Keep in mind at the same time Pope Francis’ unwavering statement: “Proselitzation is a Solemn nonsense!” In spite of it note the recent practice, not seen in my younger days, myself now running 86, not left more to run. I now see a sudden spurt and parade of Muslim caps for men and Barqua for women all around where I live! Why?

We have repeated many times that Chrstianity disappeared from the face of the world and are living in the Church of Constatne – nay of Churchity – divided and fighting – from 313 quoting saintly Pope John xxiii, where no change or reform is ossible! If there is anyone to followed and imitated, it is not any of the Churches dying or dead for good, but the One who called the SON OF MAN JESUS, a Jew who never became even a Christian – forget Priest or High Priest – but stayed humanely human as role model for all to unite the whole of  humanity!

Indoctrination at tender age!

Two main high-powered driving forces – MOTORS in the gorgeous looking Loumesines in Churches and Islamic factions – are the misguided education given at tender age in Catechism classes and Maderasas, indoctrinating NARROW RELIGIOSITY! “My religion right or wrong, follow it like blind believers; gallop like horses with blinds to see nothing one the right or left.

I have much more to write about my agony when my first daughter was being prepared for her first confession and communion – teaching what is SIN to a child who knew nothing about it but only Love!  In preparing a child for 1st communion, love of and for Jesus alone had and has to be the focus, exchewing, sin and confession, indigetable to tender minds. Too long to go in all that here!

Love, Light  & Truth!

“Sneha-manakila-sara-moozhiyil!” “Love alone is the SUM & SUBSTANCE of all on this barren Earth” is the profound Maxim, in Malayalam! That alone – LOVE ONE ANOTHER – unites all like a vice-like grip as brothers and sisters! That alone is the command of JESUS!
You may discuss endlessly whether there is a God, if Jesus was God or Man only; if GOD is LOVE, LIGHT or TRUTH! These are all beyond our grasp to digest! My humble submission is: Love, Light &Truth do exist! Let us hold on to these undeniable facts first and fast as we move on with our further search beyond our grasp! Of course a short piece from our erudite Valson, may be welcome to conclude this honest discussion. james kottoor, editor ccv.
