The sea is vast. Let’s widen our nets!

netThe Sea is Vast…

We have received the call to the sea when the first drop of christening water touched our foreheads. True, the river Jordan is the starting point of the Sea of Galilee. Galilee, where the voice of the Son of God resounds, winning over hearts and redeeming men and women from all walks. And that Galilee has no end. The real ‘Sea of Galilee’ is beyond space and time…

The immortal words of Christ cast the first net into the sea, rocking the hearts, melting them and renewing them to a whole new life after the heart of God. Then he commanded his disciples to cast their nets. Peter did, John did, Paul did and millions of men and women, who loved him, did. His promise was that he would make them ‘Fishers of men!’ The command goes on and on. The call goes on and on. Generations and nations have come and gone. Millions have cast their nets down the centuries, and captured billions for Christ. But, the Sea is vast… ‘The Sea of Galilee’, filled with men and women from diverse cultures and nationalities, is still waiting for nets to be cast down! Let’s widen our nets…

Widen our Nets!

We are preaching a Christ, who embraces all. Everyone in the world, with no exception. Pope Francis, the Pontiff who is endowed with a heart as vast as the sea, is a sign of the times given by God. He keeps proclaiming to the world that he loves all and welcomes all just as God does.

We don’t limit our horizon to this or that. We widen our heart to reach out to the ends of the world. Because, Christ’s love has no bounds! So, everyone in the world has a right for Christ. And the contemporary world has been connected with an enormous network, by the internet and the new media. To answer our Call to the Sea, we need to widen our nets. We need to equip ourselves to explore the vast and distant horizon… to cast nets into the deep as the Master has commanded. We need to delve into the sea of internet and the new media with our widened nets. To touch the hearts of men with the love of Christ. To kindle their minds with the truth of Christ…

Online Media beckons with its infinite possibilities…

Ideas and thoughts are circulated on social online media in lightning speed. In reality, it is a double edged sword. It is often misused to circulate lies and darker ideas. Consequently truth suffers. Values suffer…We look at it from the other end – from the immense possibilities of online media to circulate truth, spread the Word of God in its manifold expressions. To reach out to the sad, the gloomy and the unloved. To give a candle light to those groping in darkness in some distant, unknown corner of the world…

That is why we envisage….
