A Message from Father Nathan

My dearest people who are all close to my heart!
Lots of love and blessings to you all.

44% of all Americans have received at least 1 dose of the COVID Vaccine

As I am writing this, I feel how blessed we are all to live in this BLESSED NATION – THE USA!

I just read through the USA facts that at least 147,047,012 people or 44% of the population have received at least one dose. Overall 96,472,537 people or 29% of the population have been fully vaccinated.

We may have a difference of opinion about our politicians and their policies, but as the nations, we are all fantastic. We have a great institution and we are all guided by the Christian philosophies. We need honor and we salute the founding fathers of our nation. It works so well. God bless America!

India Struggles

There are very many countries in the world where nothing is done for their citizens. Most of them are treated much worse than the cattle. Of course, I am talking about India. What you watch on TV are underrated facts. India’s battle with the second wave of COVID -19 is making headlines with record-breaking daily cases and rising death toll.

The country recently surpassed more than 379,000 new COVID-19 cases in a single day….the biggest total recorded globally since the pandemic began! Some experts are pointing to an emerging “triple mutant strain” or “triple mutant variant” of coronavirus as one possible reason for the uptick in India’s cases. While the term may sound crazy, it’s simply another strain among many throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Viruses are constantly changing through mutations, and variants have been emerging from the very beginning of the pandemic. So far, only a few are of real concern, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

More than a virus, the government there does not do anything for its people. So to say, it allows its people to die. No one cares for their people. Like India, there are very many countries still suffering a lot from these situations.

Pray for Our Brothers and Sisters around the world

Hence, may I request you to pray for the globe that, may the mercy of the Lord heal those who suffer due to this pandemic situation.

As we pray for those people who are affected by this virus around our world, may I request you all, please take great care of your health.

Let us pray for ourselves, our families, our community, our state, and our nation that we are and will continue to be grateful to God for a great and blessed country that he has bestowed upon us

God bless you all.

Ever wanting to be faithful to your service,

With love and blessings,

—Fr. Sahayanathan Nathan

What is the Sacrament of Confession? Why do we need confession? What are the benefits of going to confession? The Sacrament of Confession is one of the most unique and beautiful aspects of Catholicism. Jesus Christ, in His abundant love and mercy, established the Sacrament of Confession so that we as sinners can obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God, our neighbors, and the Church.
