Our Beloved Bishop Speaks Diocese of Kumbakonam


Respected and dear brother - priests, religious and laity,

 An old man told his grandson, "My son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is negativity. It is the negative vibrations of fear, inaction, mental stagnation, hopelessness, prejudice, anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego that envelop a person predominantly

 The other is positivity. It is the positive vibrations of joy, peace, love, hope, kindness, innovative thinking, creative insights, determination and drive that characterize a magnetic personality. The former is energy drainer and the latter is energy booster in an individual; one gropes in darkness and the other delights in brightness and beauty, one drowns in gloom while the other dashes into happiness, one incubates doom and destruction while the other inspires growth and achievement."

 Our mind and heart have been wounded by negative characteristics of our parents, negative experiences and negative education. So they will be continuously producing negative energy.

 At the same time our mind and heart continuously produce positive energy having influenced by our parents positive characteristics, positive experiences and positive education.

 Now how to find out what is positive and what is negative? The "I" in us will help us to find out what is good, better and best. Once we find out in silence what is pleasing to God and to his people we must opt for the unconditional love for God and our neighbour putting aside our self-interest and personal agenda.

Wishing you a Win,

Yours sincerely in our Lord,

+ F. Antonisamy.
Bishop of Kumbakonam.
