In the spirit of charity, we the Pallottine Missionary Sisters in Tamil Nadu, South India have established the “Elizabetta Sanna Girls Home” on June 6th 2008 in Madurai.
The prime aim of this home is to help the lives of underprivileged young girls, who are deprived of food, shelter, and an excellent all rounded education. Initially this home was providing shelter for the Sri Lankan refugee children, who were driven away from their home land during the civil war in Sri Lanka. After the war most of the refugee children from our home returned to Sri Lanka to fill the vacuum. The home continued to accommodate the deprived girls of the Madurai district, who were not able to go to school due to financial crises.
Exodus 34:29-35; Matthew 13: 44-46
What if? What if you found the “pearl of great price?” What would you do? What if God spoke to you directly, gave you instructions for your family or community or church? What if you found a treasure hidden in a field or in an attic or under a mattress? This is the stuff of today’s scripture. And, oh, what possibilities they hold for us! Provided, of course, the pearl is authentic and the treasure real.
Exodus 32:15-24, 30-34; Matthew 13:31-35
Moses is so frustrated with the people that he throws down the stone tablets of the Law which God had just given him and shatters them. Moses has been away for a while and the people got restless, impatient, selfish. They wanted a god NOW. So they built one out of all their gold pieces. Of course, Moses was furious, being impatient with their impatience, destroying the Law God had given him for the people.
