Speaking In Behalf Of The Communicants

550 words - 3 pages

Your Excellency Bishop Mar Mathew Moolakkatt, Reverend Father Stephen Vettuvellil and Father, my parents, brothers, and sisters.

I want to take this opportunity to speak on behalf of all the communicants. I would like to begin by expressing our deep thanks to Bishop Moolakkatt for taking time off your busy schedule to administer the Sacraments of Communion and Confirmation for us. These Sacraments are huge deep treasures in our spiritual lives that is crucial for us to live the life of Christ and what you did for us will not be taken for granted. The Eucharist is the cornerstone of the Church and the only ones given the grace to perform this miracle are the priests. Therefore I want to just say how much we ...view middle of the document...

I owe many thanks especially to our teachers; Stephen Achan, Johny Uncle, and my mom Siby who was our CCD teacher.

However, the people who truly deserve our thanks are none other than our parents who raised us with their blood and sweat into the children of God that we are today. We have parents because when God wants to comfort us by stroking our hair or wiping away our tears, He does this through our parents. He gave us our Pappa and Amma to show us how to really love, that is, to love without condition.

All my being and all my life given into the service of God will not satisfy all the love and gratitude I feel before the feet of the Lord. I was once told that God with all his wisdom and knowledge cannot answer this one simple question; what can He give more than Himself.

The greatest gift we will ever receive in our lifetime is the one supreme and ultimate act of love that Esho performed at the cross on our behalf. This is what we all just received and some of us for the very first time in the form of the Eucharist. For all of us who have just received our first communion, we have now the duty to live in the Way, the Truth, and the Life that is Jesus Christ. My brothers, sisters, and I who have just received the Sacrament of Confirmation have had the Spirit of God strengthened in our souls. This Sacrament is the fulfillment of the promise that Jesus made that we would not be left as orphans but will be given an Advocate the Spirit of truth. We are full-fledged servants of God and there is nothing greater than this solemn duty.

This concludes my words on behalf of all the communicants. Once again, thank you all.
