A Word From The Pastor
Fr. Jose Kaimlett, Founder of HGN: On the 27th of June all of us (priests of Heralds of Good News) were shocked with the news of the demise of our founder Fr. Jose Kaimlett. He had been ill for some time. We truly did not expect such a sudden death. Fr. Jose was born in 1941 in Kerala, India and was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Eluru in India in 1966. He ministered in different parishes in different places in India and abroad and on this journey he got a call within his vocation to start a congregation of priests with a specific goal. He saw the need for priests in many countries and on October 14, 1984 he started the Congregation of Heralds of Good News by inviting 4 other priests and 5 seminarians. The purpose of the congregation was to train seminarians and to send them after their ordination wherever there was a need. HGN grew rapidly in 34 years and today we have 495 priests and over 200 seminarians working almost 19 countries all over the world. The priests of the congregation also run Catholic schools, orphanages, retreat centers, parishes, home for the elderly and the destitute in India and abroad. In his vibrant faith filled ministry our founder also started two other congregations namely Sisters of Good News and Missionaries of Compassion. On the 27th of June God told Fr. Jose ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Enter into the joy of your master!’

Everyone Has a Story in Life: A 24 year old boy seeing out from the train’s window shouted…“Dad, look the trees are going behind!” Dad smiled and a young couple sitting nearby, looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity suddenly he again exclaimed… “Dad, look the clouds are running with us!” The couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man…“Why don’t you take your son to a good doctor?” The old man smiled and said…“I did and we are just coming from the hospital, my son was blind from birth, he just got his eyes today.” Every single person on the planet has a story. Don’t judge people before you truly know them. The truth might surprise you.
The Nun and the Whiskey: A nun walks into a liquor store and asks for a half whiskey. The shopkeeper looks at her inquisitively, she adds, "It's for Mother Superior's constipation." So the shopkeeper says, "OK." She pays for the whiskey and leaves. Two hours later, the shopkeeper closes the store and walks home through a park. He spots the same nun in the park sitting on a bench, roaring drunk. "Shame on you, Sister", he says, "I thought that whiskey was for Mother Superior's constipation". "It is," she slurs”. "When she sees me drunk, she'll S###!"

Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time - July 15, 2018
Today's readings are about being chosen and sent. The prophet Amos was chosen by the Lord and sent to use his talents for the people of God. The Gospel recounts the story of the sending of the twelve disciples; and in the second reading, St. Paul reminds us that we, too, are chosen. For what have I been chosen? To whom have I been sent?
