March 18, 2007: Fourth Sunday in Lent - Fr. Satish

"Coming to His Senses"

Sunday Mass Readings

If we had to trace our faith journey beginning with first Holy Communion till today, what would it look like? How has our faith matured over the years? If you get the chance, it would be a worthwhile exercise to list the areas where we have grown or perhaps even declined. Today’s readings encourage us to undertake such an exercise. More than any penance we may have undertaken this Lent, this might be the most important task.


Is it useful to install the sample data?

Well you are reading it right now! This depends on what you want to achieve. If you are new to Joomla! and have no clue how it all fits together, just install the sample data. If you don't like the English sample data because you - for instance - speak Chinese, then leave it out.

How do I remove an Article?

To completely remove an Article, select the Articles that you want to delete and move them to the Trash. Next, open the Article Trash in the Content Menu and select the Articles you want to delete. After deleting an Article, it is no longer available as it has been deleted from the database and it is not possible to undo this operation.

What is the difference between Archiving and Trashing an Article?

When you Archive an Article, the content is put into a state which removes it from your site as published content. The Article is still available from within the Control Panel and can be retrieved for editing or republishing purposes. Trashed Articles are just one step from being permanently deleted but are still available until you Remove them from the Trash Manager. You should use Archive if you consider an Article important, but not current. Trash should be used when you want to delete the content entirely from your site and from future search results.

June 22, 2008: Our Destiny - Fr. Satish

Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Sunday Mass Readings

On my trip to France last year, I stayed at my friends house which overlooked the amphitheatre where Blandina was put to death in 177 AD. Blandina, was a slave and a Christian who had been taken into custody along with her master, also a Christian. She was bodily frail and her friends feared that she might not remain steadfast under torture. But in spite of her terrible torture, torture that even her executioners became exhausted of, she remained faithful and repeated to every question "I am a Christian and we commit no wrongdoing." She was bound to a stake and wild beasts were set on her. They did not, however touch her. After this for a number of days she was led into the arena to see the sufferings of her companions. Finally, as the last of the martyrs, she was scourged, placed on a red-hot grate, enclosed in a net and thrown before a wild steer who tossed her into the air with his horns, and at last killed with a dagger. We certainly know that her faith was strong. We look at Blandina’s faith and we admire her courage, faith and conviction.
