Pastor’s Message

Msgr. Gigi Philip

Changing World and Unchanging God (LENT)

“The only thing constant is change.” This saying is attributed to Heraclitus, the Greek philosopher lived four centuries before Christ. It is not just the world outside us that is unstable, overtime, we ourselves are subject to physical, mental, moral, and spiritual changes. He noted that life is like a river. The peaks and troughs, pits and swirls, are all part of the ride. Like a river, nature flows ever onwards, and the nature of the flow changes.
Covid 19 is a reminder towards this truth. we tend to look for permanence in this changing world; relationships, assets, investments, familiar surroundings, or something else. Eventually, such things disappoint us, for everything in creation is subject to change.
To find true stability and permanence, we must look beyond this created order, an unchanging God. The Prophet Malachi lived in the same time of Heraclitus wrote, “I the LORD do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed” (3:6). Our ancestors believed ‘The earth and the heavens will perish but God endures, and all who trust in Him shall live secure’ (Psalm 102: 25-28; Hebrew 1:10-12).
Let us turn our gaze to this unchanging God that He may enlighten us to seek stability through this changing world.
