On the Christmas day I am flying to Rome. That’s symbolic… I will surely visit Vatican…I wonder if I will feel the presence of Christ in there?
Today I want to make a very unusual post – it’s a re-post of one blogfriend. This is a great fable was written by Suresh. I simply love that. It is hard to write up something better than that, really. The message is too good!
“In celebration of Christ” fable by Suresh:
As usual I was getting ready for morning prayer. You know today is special, its Christmas! and I have lot of people to attend to. I have been working as a Bishop for years and nothing much has changed except that church contributions have grown bigger and I have grown fatter and little balder. I have felt good being a Bishop!
My vesture looked nice and ironed. It’s always nice to walk around in Italy during Christmas, So much celebrations and festivity around. As I walked out of my house, a well built stranger with piercing eyes was waiting for me. I wished him well and asked him “who are you? What Can I do for you?”
He said “I am Mr. Jesus and I am here to bless you”
I said “Good Morning Mr. Jesus, Nice to see you and would you like to come with me to address morning prayers?
Jesus: “Sure if you insist,
I said with half smile “Son what do you want? good joke but what can i do?
He said “I want nothing, I am Jesus and I have come back to help my people. I waited for a second and then said “Sure, would you like to show me your ID or some proof that proves you are Mr. Jesus.
He just walked near my pool and started walking on water. Afterwards he came outside the pool and called my servant John,asked him to show his limping leg. It took him few seconds to cure Johns’ leg. For me everything was moving too fast. John was down on ground with folded hands in eternal prayer.
I knew that this man is really Jesus!I thought this is not going well and its an important morning . I called Mr. Jesus inside “What’s this magic you are doing? I was stern and serious.
Jesus said “there is no magic, this is who I am” he continued “Can we go to prayer hall now? and I would love to meet my followers and dear Christians. I have waited for this day for so long.
I had to tell Jesus the truth.
“Look Mr. Jesus I can’t take you and introduce you in prayer hall”
Why not? Jesus asked. (more…)
