I got an SMS from my local Pastor this morning that one of our young pastors’ mother is no more. Today is a Friday and my colleagues must be awaiting my “Happy Friday” mail. I don’t feel like putting my fingers to the keyboard for this mail, so will not send that mailer this week.
The one who created her took her back. I had never met her personally, though I might have seen her at church. But God blessed her in that she bore a son who has grown up to be a brilliant young man of God. I am sure God will take him places and through him, will comfort millions of souls who need His healing touch. In fact, while his mom was in hospital, he not only prayed for her, but also visited and prayed for other patients in the hospital. They were amazed and asked him “Pastor, your own mom is so sick and you still care to pray for us, who you even don’t know?” It takes the courage and strength that only God can give, to pray for others too, when your own loved ones are sick. If India had such leaders in politics too, wouldn’t life be different in this country in which St. Thomas became a martyr for the Gospel’s sake?
