About The Voice Of Bombay's Catholic Laity

Bombay Laity Ezekiel’s Chapter 3 Task as Watchman 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 18 When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for[b] their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 19 But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.

    It is a truism that where there are people there will be vested interests, politics and cronies. This ought to be minimised, evn eliminated by a community of love that manifests the transmission of God’s love received by each member. God’s love is to be transmitted by people to people, particularly to those who for good reason have been insulated from God’s love by friends, relatives, society.

    Society has the capacity to choose leaders who mislead them, who have their own vested interests. The story of the Old Testament is one such story. This story is being repeated by contemporary middle class some of whom practice their brand of spirituality and others who would reform the Church. This people also provide vocations many of whom rise to the top with the support of their family and other lay well wishers. It is these persons, both lay and ordained who by choosing not to inform themselves and at least change their own way of life who contribute to the state of affairs in the Church.

    This does not mean one should be disheartened. Remember that Jesus chose Peter to be the first Pope on which he founded his church as a sure way to the Father and salvation. (But not the only way). He also chose Judas who betrayed him. He also chose the brothers James and John whose mother sought to have them given places of honour. And he chose Thomas who refused to believe that Christ had risen as he said he would. And all the eleven were determined that all future members of Christ’s must be circumcised as Jews!

    So look in the mirror and, to paraphrase John Kennedy, ask: What can I do for me, my family and my Church”.
