Bishop Mar Bawai Soro's Pastoral Visit 2012



Bishop Mar Bawai Soro Pastoral Visit

Sunday June 10th 2012 was the Second Sunday of the Apostles; a special day traditionally celebrated commemorating the Apostles, their Apostolic Commission and their teaching.

For us, here at Saint Matthew Assyrian Chaldean Catholic Church, this Sunday brought to us anew blessing; having the beloved Bishop, H.E. Mar Bawai Soro, celebrate the morning Mass with us, and deliver a sermon which resuscitated in us the core message of the Apostles. This effectual message explicit in its context extended the call to a life of faith to all of us. We are to live our Faith abided in God’s Word; to love The Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our mind, and with all our strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves- to live our Faith to the fullest. Then, like the Apostles, The Indwelling Presence of Christ in us endows us peace even through our suffering and hardship, being physical or monetary in nature.

H.E. continued bringing to light the many gifts and talents God awards each and every one of us, and how imperative it is for us to remain mindful of them. When we invest these gifts selflessly, and with pure intentions at heart, we bring joy to The Heart of God, and are granted zeal for His Glory. Following the Mass, Bishop Soro led the parishioners in prayer baptizing three of our children.

Our utmost gratitude to The Lord our God for blessing us through the spiritual affluence He endowed Bishop Soro, whose passion for The Lord is eminent, and his teaching which cultivates Christ-unity is a call for us all to be accountable to, and to withstand. On these, rests the essence of his teaching. We also extend our appreciation to the immense apostleship-care our Chaldean Catholic Diocese of St. Peter the Apostle offers us.
