Parents have a special desire to lay their little children on the sacred arms of His Holiness the Apostolic Father Rohan Lalith Aponso, to grant the blessings of His Holiness. At the Midnight Christmas Mass on December 24th 2018, His Holiness the Apostolic Father disclosed a wish He makes inwardly for that little child during such instances.

At the homily of the Midnight Christmas Mass held at the Apparition Church of Our Lady of Katunayake’s Shrine, His Holiness Apostolic Father Rohan Lalith Aponso stated “I will reveal a small secret”. Revealing His secret, He said whenever someone brings a child near Him or places a child on His sacred arms, He wishes inwardly if that child is a Buddhist to receive ‘comfort of nibbana’ and if that child is a Christian to receive ‘happiness of heaven’. Also, His Holiness the Apostolic Father stated that He does not utter these words to be overheard by parents.

Explaining the reason why these words are uttered oblivious to parents; bringing a smile to everyone’s face, His Holiness the Apostolic Father stated if the parents overhear these wishes, He will get punched by them.

Furthermore, His Holiness the Apostolic Father proclaimed that after a child is born grew up and died; it is futile to wish for the happiness of heaven and comfort of nibbana near the lifeless body. That great wish should happen at the moment of the child’s birth, and the happiness of heaven and comfort of nibbana should be discovered when someone is still alive. His Holiness the Apostolic Father Rohan Lalith Aponso questioned “is what I am saying wrong?” from the Buddhist devotees who attended the Midnight Christmas Mass. Moreover, He stated that it is His perception as well that the happiness of heaven and comfort of nibbana should procure when person is alive.

In many obituary posters, the wishes for the deceased such as rest in peace or May he attains the supreme bliss of nibbana can be seen, stated His Holiness the Apostolic Father. Instead of expecting the wishes of others after we are deceased, wishing to ourselves that may I receive happiness of heaven or may I receive comfort of nibbana and the importance of living according to the way we receive happiness of heaven and comfort of nibbana were lengthily interpreted by His Holiness the Apostolic Father. Furthermore, His Holiness the Apostolic Father Rohan Lalith Aponso described in detail that if we act according to aforementioned way, even after our death if someone wished for us to be born in hell, it is a futile effort.
