You ought to know cold showers can help improve metabolism, prevent post-workout injuries and regulate uric acid levels in your body. This is just the tip of the iceberg, read further to learn about how cold showers can rejuvenate you.

Male fertility: Very few men may know this fact but heat is bad for your testes, it can potentially lower the sperm count. If you want a child, it's time to shower in cold water, plus you're saving electricity. So next time you visit the sauna you may want to think again.

blood circulation to eliminate toxins:
This requires some concentration – when cold water hits the surface of your skin, the blood vessels under the surface contract. This reduces the circulation of blood, but at the same time your body's automated blood pressure mechanism kicks in and targets the tissue. This causes the blood to circulate with extra boost, hence the blood flows with vigour improving the circulation.

Builds immunity: Do you want to increase white blood cells? Take a cold shower, it will increase your metabolism, which in turn increases the body heat, therefore invigorating your
immune system, releasing white blood cells.

Increases metabolism: When you're cold you reach out for a sweater. Similarly, when your body is cold it automatically generates heat, putting the metabolism into fast gear. That's when carbs and fats are burned to keep you warm.

Avoid sport or workout injuries: After you have over exercised your muscles, that is when they are inflamed and you need them to relax. To improve strength and muscle mass your muscle fibers expand and contract, hence to prevent ruptured fibers due to over training, cold water showers are advised.

heal and tone skin and regulate your autonomic nervous system.

Cold water and body rhythm: It deepens your
breathing. If you're tired, a cold shower will do the trick as it helps to fight fatigue. Can't sleep? A cold shower will help you hit the snooze button. If your hair products are not giving you the desired sheen, try cold water. Who knew cold showers had so many health benefits!

Pentecost B

From Fr. Tony Kadavil:

Pentecost  literally  means  50th.  It  is  a  feast  celebrated  on  the  50th   day  after  the Passover feast by the Jews and a feast celebrated on the 50th day after the feast of the Resurrection of Jesus by the Christians. The Jewish Pentecost was originally a post- harvest thanksgiving feast.   Later it was celebrated to remember God’s covenants with Noah after the Deluge and with Moses at Mt. Sinai

Ascension B

From Fr. Tony Kadavil:
Today’s readings describe the ascension of the Lord Jesus into his heavenly glory
after he had promised his disciples his Holy Spirit as their source of heavenly power, and commanded them to bear witness to him throughout the world by their lives
and preaching.  But the ascended Jesus is still with us through his indwelling Holy Spirit as he has promised, "I am with you always; yes, to the end of time.”   Today’s feast celebrates Jesus final glorification after his suffering, death   and resurrection    a glory in which we hope to share.

Mothers’ Day Prayers

1)    Every Mother's Prayer

I pray you'll be my eyes
And watch her where she goes
And help her to be wise
Help me to let go

Every mother's prayer
Every child knows
Lead her to a place
Guide her with your grace
To a place where she'll be safe

I pray she finds your light
And holds it in her heart
As darkness falls each night
Remind her where you are

Every mother's prayer
Every child knows
Need to find a place
Guide her with your grace
Give her faith so she'll be safe

Lead her to a place
Guide her with your grace
To a place where she'll be safe

Easter 6 B - As I love you

Fr. Tony Kadavil:
First Reading: Acts 10: 25-26, 34-35, 44-48
Second Reading: 1 John 4: 7-10
Gospel: John 15: 9-17


1) God’s love in action:   When Fr. Damien arrived in Molokai to assemble a prefabricated church for the lepers, he spent the first few weeks sleeping out under the trees, because he was unable to cope with the stench in the hovels of the lepers. He certainly wouldn't dare preach to them about God's love for them, because, as they saw it, that would be offensive. But slowly he opened his heart to the grace of God which enabled him to see the suffering Jesus in them. In no time, he was washing them, bandaging them, and burying them. He came to love them, and, through him, they came to believe that God loved them. He smoked a pipe to counteract the stench, but he soon was passing the pipe around for others to have a smoke. He ate food with them from a common bowl, out of which they scooped the food with hands that had no fingers. He caught the disease himself, and he was happy to be able to live and to die for them. Thus, St.  Damien followed Jesus’ commandment of love given in todays gospel: "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

Sermons for Mother's Day:

Romans 16:13 - Mother's Day

John 15:9-17 - Whistling Jesus - by Leonard Sweet


 I must candidly confess that when I was in seminary the 16th chapter of Paul's letter to the Romans didn't do much for me. It struck me as being boring nothing more than a long presentation of people's names, most of whom I could not pronounce; I usually skimmed over that part so I could get to what I considered to be the real Gospel. Over the years I have greatly changed my attitude about this particular chapter and I have discovered that there is much more to it than I had first imagined. For example, it is interesting to note that of the twenty-six people who Paul singles out for his personal greeting, six were women. Now that strikes me as being rather interesting, since Paul has frequently gotten a bum rap for being a male chauvinist. I think it also shows us the tremendous influence that women had in the early church. In the male oriented first century Palestine, it is telling that Paul could not describe the church without mentioning the significant role of women.

    Sermon - International workers day


    1. Define, working class: “those employed in lower tier jobs (as measured by skill, education and lower incomes), often extending to those in unemployment or otherwise possessing below-average incomes.”
    2. In the Bible there’s no such group as “working class”. However in it we find many people that fit into the above description.
    3. Do you know these people though they are long gone have a three fold message about God and his love for those who toil and labor today? Let me take you 2000 years back in time.
