Message from Fr. Thomas C. Mathew, The Vice Chancellor


Dear Christites,
Christmas is a time to renew our relationships and commitment in our relationships. We do it by sending greetings, gifts etc. Christmas the celebration of Jesus becoming human is a call to look into our interpersonal and social relationships. Jesus became a human to reestablish the blurred Human relationship with God and to build a stable and strong relationship between humans. We exist in our relationships. We exist in the trust we have in our interpersonal, familial and social relationships. As our honorable Chancellor, Fr. Augustine says, this relationship is not one of dependence or even of independence but is of INTERDEPENDENCE. We have to grow from our dependence on others to independence and from independence to INTERDEPENDENCE. We do find this interdependence in the Christmas event. God counts on human cooperation in incarnation, Mary depend on others to give birth to her son Jesus, Joseph is directed by the angels and the Magi is guided by a star, a symbol of nature. To Mahatma Gandhi the father of our nation, interdependence is and ought to be as much the ideal of man as self-sufficiency. This interdependence is authentic and genuine and it comes from our own awareness about ourselves as social beings. The most important ingredient we put into any relationship is not what we say or what we do, but what we are. And if our words and our actions come from superficial human relations techniques (the Personality Ethic) rather than from our own inner core (the Character Ethic), others will sense that duplicity. We simply won't be able to create and sustain the foundation necessary for effective interdependence (Stephen R. Covey). Let the celebration of Christmas bring in us this dimension of our existence for a fruitful and joyous new year 2009.
