St. Gertrude's Feast 2008


At the Feast
Beyond those flickering, colorful and bright lights were the Love and friendship and laughter shared by those who came to show their support and those who served for its success

Beyond the 'saltiness' of the surrounding since we were by the sea-were the sacrifice and hard work offered by many men and women of the parish. Not only those whom we saw but above all those who were silently working at the background.

I believe those were real instances when we tried to live up to that call of Jesus to be the "light of the world and the salt of the earth."

And may this be true not only at the feast but also everyday. Amen

This is a site of "Leaps of Faith" experiences and reflections. Be it Philosophical, Theological, Practical or Personal. It is also a site of Biblical reflections. But Above all, This is a site for YOU and ME.

"Leaps of Faith"

"LEAPS OF FAITH" Can be a religious movement of a person, an inner movement of belief, of trust on the greatest power of all, The Supreme being..Our Creator and Maker..Our God. They can be resolutions of a person everyday in his life to move forward, to be a better person, and to start a new life. They can be decisions of a person in times of great uncertainties, when he is not sure of what will come or happen and he makes a leap of faith. They can be steps, difficult steps that a person makes on his way to change or to start anew. Or they can simply be a persons resolve to fly, to travel..to widen his horizons, to learn more about life and to grow. These are Leaps of faith we make everyday and in great moments of our lives and they are worth considering and reflecting.
