Priest Publishes English Novel - Kenosis – Story of A Bleeding Heart
Oct. 30, 2013
The novel ‘Kenosis’ portrays a priest, Fr. Xavier who empties himself for the cause of his Young Friend (Jesus Christ) who called him. He lives the word of our Lord “Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit”. The author depicts that the entire life of a priest is a journey to Calvary and the novel brings the message that self emptying is the genuine success of a priest’s life.
Fr. Xavier fosters an orphan boy and enables him to climb great heights. When the boy climbs each step of success and prosperity the priest of the novel falls off himself. The contradiction of those winners and losers in life is pictured all through the novel. The novel with 19 chapters and 170 pages is published by Cosmo Books. It is the maiden novel of Fr. Alapatt in English. He has penned other 9 books in Malayalam.
It was released by the well known literary critique and writer Prof. M. Leelavathy at a function held at the courtyard of Fr. Alapatt’s parentage home. Mrs. Rosy Antony Alapatt, Mother of Fr. Alapatt received the first copy. Archbishop Mar Jacob Thoomkuzhy, Bishop Mar Raphael Thattil, Mayor I.P. Paul and others spoke on the occasion.
