Merry Christmas from St Mary's Syro Malabar Church!

"When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, 
we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, 
have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. 
The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, 
who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, 
who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and 
face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.
THAT FRIEND IS JESUS!!!



Merry Christmas 

to all friends at St Mary's

Dear Friends in the Lord,

I hope you're having a blessed Advent.  Here is something to make your Advent a little more special.  Today is Reconciliation Monday, which means that the sacrament of reconciliation – confession – will be available in all parishes of the archdiocese between 4 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.  Why not take advantage of this opportunity to prepare for the Lord's coming at Christmas by stopping in at one of our parishes for this wonderful sacrament?  Don't be worried if it's been a long time; God is always waiting to greet us with His arms open wide!  And, if you need a refresher in the "how-to's" of going to confession, we've got that covered as well.  Just check out the resources on our website, which you can find here.

Faithfully in Christ,

Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan

Dear all,

Today at 5.20 pm our dear Josachan underwent kidney transplant surgery at Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx. The surgery lasted 4 hours and now he is moved to the Post Anesthetic Care Unit. As Josachan was on the beneficiary list, yesterday he got confirmation about the availability of a matching kidney.

We offered special prayers for Achan at this evening's  Mass and Rosary. Also, this morning I got an opportunity to pray with Achan over the phone and to assure him of our continued prayers and support.

Please say a special prayer for Achan tonight or tomorrow as you get a chance to read this message. He has touched all our lives in one way or another.

May the good Lord grant him a quick recovery with all best post-operative results!
