9Why Gospel talks about Pig and Dogs "Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. 3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, `Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is the log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye. 6"Do not give dogs what is holy; and do not throw your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under foot and turn to attack you.(Mathew 7: 1-6 )Why inside Judging, Gospel talks about Pigs and Dogs?

21Can we develop our abilities alone.., The Feeding Of The Five Thousand (Matthew 14:13-21) (Written in Four Gospels)13 When Jesus heard what had happened, He withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place. Hearing of this, the crowds followed him on foot from the towns. 14When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.15 As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.” 16Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” 17 “We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered.18 “Bring them here to me,” he said. 19 And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the people. 20 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. 21 The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.
22Converting Your Ability to a Skill? If you were the person who was having breads and 2 fishs, will you give these five fish, if anybody ask?If you don’t give, your ability will not become a skill.In this miracle our religion clearly says, develop your ability without expecting a return.Then your ability become a skillYou can enjoy the Happiness of the life even during this birth and after your death any births to come or you will be in Heaven.There are so many examples in the History. Let’s analyse the recent examples:
23A lesson from Mother Teresa Mother Teresa (26 August 1910 – 5 September 1997), born Agnesë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu was an Indian Catholic nun of Albanian origin who founded the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata, India in For over 45 years she ministered to the poor, sick, orphaned, and dying, while guiding the Missionaries of Charity's expansion, first throughout India and then in other countriesIn 1952 Mother Teresa opened the first Home for the Dying in Calcutta. With the help of Indian officials she converted an abandoned Hindu temple into the Kalighat Home for the Dying, a free hospice for the poor. She renamed it Kalighat, the Home of the Pure Heart (Nirmal Hriday). Those brought to the home received medical attention and were afforded the opportunity to die with dignity, according to the rituals of their faith; Muslims were read the Quran, Hindus received water from the Ganges, and Catholics received the Last Rites."A beautiful death," she said, "is for people who lived like animals to die like angels—loved and wanted.“ As usual, she also had to face People’s oppose, because her Nirmal Hriday was situated near the Kalighat Temple of Hindhus. Therefore Politician went to see her Nirmal Hriday and he saw how she treated to poor innocent people. When he came out he told to the people “ I promise I will ban this service on an one conditions. Condition is Your parents and brothers should treat these people”. Afterthat nobody went against her service. – One person multiplied the services.

25WATER INTO WINE (John 2 : 1 – 11) Through Mary towards Jesus, through Jesus towards God…. Isn’t our Religion?WHY?WATER INTO WINE (John 2 : 1 – 11)1. And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: 2. And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. 3. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. 4. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. 5. His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. 6. And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. 7. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. 8. And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. 9. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, 10. And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now. 11. This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.Why Holy Mary saw, Wine is out of stock, despite the God’s Presence? Is it the Father’s Choice? Through Intercessionary Prayers, Christianity is leading to one spiritual family.
26MARY IN FRONT OF THE CROSS John 19:25. Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. 26. When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! 27. Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home. 28. After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.Did Mary have many Children? Yes.... Millions...Not by Flesh ..., but by Spiritual

28What is the Miracle Medal? In 1830 November 17, Mary was standing on a half globe with her feet crushing the head of a serpent. Around her a message was appeared saying “ O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee”On the reverse side of the medal, there was a letter “M” is surrounded by a cross. The ‘M’ is Mary’s initial, the cross is the Cross of ChristBelow, there were two hearts, one Heart pierced with a sword, and other Heart crowned with thorns.St. Catherine identified these Hearts are Mother Mary and Jesus Christ. 12 Stars depict the twelve apostles and represent the Church, a beacon tothe World.Mother Mary said—”Have a medal struck on this model. All those who wearIt round the neck will receive many graces. The graces will be abundant forthose who wear it confidance. “Sister Catherine died on December 31, In 1895 her cause for Beatification was introduced in Rome.

30TO GET THE SPIRITUAL SUPPORT TODAY OUR CHILDREN ARE IN DANGER DUE TO EASY ACCESS TO PHONOGRAPY,TOO MUCH TIME IN FRONT OF TV SCREENS- LEAD TO WEAKEN THE SELF ANALYSIS TOWARDS RESOLVING PROBLEMS. THIS HAS BECOME MORE COMMON IN EUROPEAN COUNTRIES, AND FASTLY CATCHING IN OUR CHILDRENS SOCIETY.DEFINEATLY WE NEED THE SPIRITUAL SUPPORT TO ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM?DISCUSSION POINT2
31Easiest Path for Happiness (Mind Concentration) Develop a Habit. (Every day analyzing on one subject)Allocate a Time(Statistical Equilibrium)Everyday PracticeDo one thing at a timeWithout Anxiety. When You are Practicing Jesus and Holy Mary will help you, to remove the Anxiety.
32Best Method is Rosary for the Catholics? Allocate a fix time for every day (preferably early morning) to recite individual Rosary.Allocate one or two decades to remember whom you associate yesterday. Remove any Prejudice and Destructive thoughts.Read the Gospel, at least one passage and contemplate the relevance to your life. (Cyclic Gospel Reading is recommended.) Use anywhere in the World.When You practice this method you will observe internal happiness with less anxiety.WHY?You allow Heavenly Doctor to operate your Weakness, through your Prayers...Is it similar thefunction of Physical surgeon having operation in your body, and make you to recover yourIllness. In Surgery you give consent to the doctor to operate your body. He will anaesthesia youSo that you do not feel. He removed all the bad parts, then he will recover you to the normal life
33Why Holy MaryImagine that you cannot forget a bad experience according to your judgment leading prejudice and destructive thoughts.Then you should leave that problem in the hand of Holy Mary and allow her to resolve accepting any outcomes. Then you will see the matter will be resolved without any humiliation to you.Why Holy Mary? Imagine the first miracle water into wine. The role of Holy Mary. Mysterious words in the gospel we hold thy Son. (further reading )We worship only God. We don’t worship Holy Mary. But we respect her,like our earthly mother.
34Allow God and Holy Mary to lead our Life.., Major Concept behind our religion to resolve our ProblemsAllow God and Holy Mary to lead our Life..,What is the difference between these three pictures?Alone, No Service to anybodyService to People, but NO Rider. HorseWill decide where to go?We are like this most of our life.Service to People, Rider will decidewhere to go?Difficult to obey the rider, horse like tohave his own path.When you follow the rider you will see that the qualities of surrender – Trust with theRider along with your cheerfulness.
35Willingness to Surrender Suppose a man is in love with a beautiful woman, and the woman puts a condition that if he wants her in marriage he should give up drinking and smoking. The man would certainly comply with these conditions at least he gets her in marriage.The Willingness to surrender to these conditions is prompted by the Love he has experienced through her.
36God’s Will and my willIn our day to day life, we can train our Will actively keeping in Mind the love of God and his mighty plan for us. The word ‘God’ becomes concrete reality when I break my Will and do God’s WILL
37When I break my own Will and do God’s Will what I can see If it is a question of speaking to a person who has hurt me (according to my thinking), I can do so if God becomes my priority.If I am ask to do a simple work, I can do it solely for God alone, in secret and in a hidden way.When I do it only for God and God alone, actively my Will is strengthen and God becomes a very concrete reality to me and I began to love him in that situation.
38How to become Happy?Now your Mind will identify what is the truth in your life. Then your freewill act according to the good outcomes you feel.Now you can develop your abilities with a clear mind and freewill.How to develop your abilities?Will the God change the ability of people from generation to generation. What you have experienced?
39What is Today? What we observe in ‘PAST’? Then, What is ‘PRESENT’? Agricultural RevolutionIndustrial revolutionThen, What is ‘PRESENT’?Communication Revolution(All people will have telephones, will use Internet , will use storage devices like pen drive)What we can observe in ‘FUTURE’?You Like to go to Astrologer !NO!Transport and Energy RevolutionLife is Flowing
40Effects Of Revolution The paradigm changes The way of living of people changes with the revolutionsThe revolutions will take may be 100 years.Human will have the following 3 major parameters to change his way of living.That is efficiency, productivity & effectivenessThe revolutions will make human more efficient than previous.
41EfficiencyEfficiency = The resources needed to do a job according to your mind setActual resources we used according to Present Day TechnologyIf you’re mind is set for the old revolution definitely your efficiency will not match for the present era( you will be inefficient without your knowledge),then your productivity and effectiveness will be lower.Ex: If you’re mind is set before the industrial revolution you might think you need 5 days to go from Negombo to Colombo by a bullock cart. But if you use a car ,you can go with in 1 hour.Hence the efficiency in this case will be:Efficiency = 5*24/1=168
42Why Church encourage to use Latest Technology.., In the Gospel with regard to fastingJesus Questioned About Fasting Luke 5: 6, Mathew 9: 14, Mark 2: 18How can the guests of the bridegroom mourn while he is with them?No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse.Neither do men pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.39And no one after drinking old wine wants the new, for he says, 'The old is better.‘Analyse the Above Carefully. We does not want new wine. Tendency is to stay with old wine, hence we are fasting while the God says no need to fast, when He is there.
