2014 July NEWSLETTER
Message from our vicar
P: “O Lord, Jesus the Christ, born of Mary, baptized by John have mercy on us”
C: We magnify You…Have mercy on us. Amen
                                             (Taken from the Order of Worship for Holy Qurbana)

Dearly Beloved in Christ,

    This is a small and simple prayer. Holy Communion starts with this prayer. As the liturgy is responsive in nature, the response to the celebrant’s prayer is series of affirmation about who Jesus is. Here community of worshipers admits Lordship of Jesus of Nazareth. By participating in the response we affirm that Jesus is truly the God and He is also the true human. So this prayer is the Christological affirmation of the Church. Here the Celebrant and the community pray for Jesus’ mercy. I have taken this so as to reflect on the essence of this prayer.

    No one will be saved if God is only the Just God. It is the mercy of God that keeps him loving us though we are sinners. So it is the God’s mercy that we pray and plead.  As we are not worthy to stand before God who is Just, we can’t utter anything except “Lord have mercy.”The Greek word for “Lord have mercy” is “Kyrie eleison”. Greek word for ‘mercy’ is ‘eleos’ meaning ‘kindness or good will toward the miserable and afflicted.’ The Hebrew word is ‘hesed’ which means ‘steadfast love.’ So the liturgical prayer means Lord Jesus shower upon your unworthy people, Your Steadfast Love.

    This prayer is very often used in Divine Liturgy. Lord’s mercy is immeasurable and His love for the world is beyond all words. So mercy is a concept integral to an understanding of God's dealings with humankind. This prayer reminds us that Jesus is merciful. It is the mercy and steadfast love of Jesus that compelled him to take birth in this world, to suffer and to die thereby redeeming His world. This simple prayer also enables everyone to approach Jesus the Christ. Many approached Jesus in his earthly ministry with this small prayer. Few among them are Simon Peter, the Canaanite woman, sinful woman, the leper, Bartimeaus and the thief on the cross. It was this sincere prayer which compels Jesus to bless them. This simple prayer reveals their full of faith and dependence in Jesus Christ. Jesus always responded to sincere cry of the people.

    But many a time this simple and meaningful prayer becomes very mechanical in the worship service as we recite this prayer without much thought. Liturgical prayer/s becomes meaningful and also a blessing only when it comes from our deep heart. We need to internalize the meaning of all those prayers.

    Dear Parish members, Altar is the throne of Grace because through his sacrificial death Jesus redeemed the world. So it is not the Justice of God that would save us, only His Mercy can save you and me. What humanity need is God’s Mercy. The Qurbana (Holy Communion) is the proclamation of God’s mercy. But as God in Jesus is merciful, we should be merciful to others. The mercy we ask for is the mercy we must give to others.  So this prayer would also mean Lord make us merciful as you are full of mercy.

    The cry of sincere faith is never unheard. Let our worship be pleasing and meaningful to God.

May God keep you in his warm and comforting embrace.

Rev. Shinoi Joseph
Vicar
