“I can do all things through him who strengthens me”. Philippians 4:13

We could only place our trust in God Almighty in requesting His eternal compassion to act on this dreadful loss. Let us all ardently pray and hope that the damages sown by Hurricane Harvey will be addressed soon. Calamities could happen anywhere at any time, but that is the time we ought to show the strength and integrity of our faith. We offer relentless prayers that you all will be strengthened in Christ to address the crises.

Let us raise ourselves up in offering all possible needed support to the afflicted. We have learned that many of our people are involved in the rehabilitation and restoration works. May God bless them with good resources and provisions that many people may be benefitted out of their philanthropic works. We have enormous respect to the local councils and governmental authoritative bodies who have magnificently managed the situation which resulted in the minimizing of the casualties.

May the Grace and Blessings of God Almighty abide with you forever!. And may the prayers of the Mother of our God the Holy Virgin Mary, St. Thomas the Apostle of India, our Holy Fathers Yeldo Mar Baselios, Mar Gregorios, Mar Dionysius and all the Holy Saints be a stronghold for us. Amen.

 

Our Father who art in Heaven.........................
