Fr Joys First Visit

Father Joy gave us a background about his life and where he’s originally from. He’s from Kerala India, which is a southern province of India with a population of 33,387,677 people. It is the 23rd largest province in India. Father Joy had 5 brothers and 1 sister. His sister moved out when she was 18 and became a nun. From that point, he wanted to become a priest. He started in India and was given a choice of learning German, and attending a church in Germany or staying in India and finding a different church. He didn’t want to learn German because it was hard enough speaking 2 different languages, so he found an opening where people spoke English. He attendedΒ  St Theresa in Edmonton Alberta for 2 years. He then was sent to the Holy Name of Jesus in Vermilion, where he would hold mass. He had a long journey to becoming a priest with about 14 years of education. When he moved to Canada, he missed his mother and father very much, because he wouldn’t be able to see them anymore, but he knew he would see them again soon. Before he attended school to become a priest, he got in touch with his sister, about where he could go to get a degree in preaching. That’s where he began his career as a priest. He knew English because the schools in India gave English classes, where kids learned to speak English. That’s why he chose to come to an English speaking country because he already knew English. There are many different religions in India, and all of them live in peace. None of them fight with each other. There are also many different languages spoken in India, so there is no official language.

My Motivations

My motivations for working are based on independence and support. I like to work at my own pace and have an organized schedule when it comes to working. I’m not afraid to take chances, and I take responsibility for all my actions. I also seek tools, education, and people to help get my work done to my satisfaction. I like getting a contribution when I do a good job on my work, and I like a work environment with strong leaders such as managers. I don’t like being on a tight schedule, one that is unorganized, or one that has no routine to it. When I need help getting something done, I ask someone who supports me in my work to help me figure something out.



My knowledge is based on physical education and science. These two subjects work together in a special way. Science is involved in physical education, and physical education involves science. The way these 2 work is knowing about the human body, and about human health. The human body is only capable to do so much, such as lifting weights or overworking yourself.Β  Science includes chemistry, physics and biology, which collaborate with physical education. For example, physical capabilities may come from the genetic background. Perhaps your father was an amazing runner, those genes could have been passed down to you, which is why you’re good at running. Physics is used in weight lifting. The way you bend your arms and push the dead weight up is a matter of force, strength, and stability. If one of these were off, it could conclude in the deadweight falling on top of you, or a muscle being damaged or torn.Β  Chemistry can be used to guide or teach an athlete about him or her self. An example includes the amount of oxygen you need in your body for it to function properly. For instance, your brain works off of oxygen, and your blood has oxygen in it, which is carried throughout your body. Lack of oxygen can lead to fainting, or your physical body shutting down. A runner has to keep moving afer taking a run, or vasoconstriction, which is your blood vessels tightening, increasing your blood pressure. It can cause seizures or fainting. A runner has to keep moving so the blood vessels keep open, and the recovery of the run will happen faster. Science and physical education collaborate in many ways, which is why my knowledge is based on the two collaborating subjects.

My Interests

After taking the survey, I learned that im an aide, meaning im a very helpful and social person, and very physically active. I get straight to the point and I’m willing to take risks, and won’t shy away from hard decisions. When making difficult situations, I think about the social and physical effects it will have on people around me, and myself.


The 10th Commandment

The poor in spirit are comforting people who are in need of comforting. Comforting people who are sick, people who are going through a hard time, such as poverty or grieving over a lost one. Helping the poor is sacrificing your own needs, to help those who need it. Both connect to each other because you’re helping the poor, and sacrificing your personal needs to help those who need it. It’s helping both the poor and the poor in spirit if you care about them and if your willing to let go of the things you own and helping or seeing someone grieve, and comforting them. It’s seeing what other people are going through, and helping them with the struggles their facing.

Who am I -Personality

I’m more of an independent sort of person, that prefers to be alone in or in a small group. I have good social skills, but I prefer not to use them, and keep my thoughts to myself instead of sharing them. I don’t like being on a strict schedule and prefer to have a flexible routine and schedule. I like to jump straight into work without any planning, and I have disorganized thoughts during tasks. While making decisions, I think about how the other person would feel after I make it.

My Learning Style

From the quiz I took, I learned that I am a kinesthetic learner, meaning I understand school work and learn tasks better by doing the activity. For example, if I was given a math problem, the best way I could figure out the solution to the problem, is if I were to write it out and figure it out by myself. The best way I could learn or study for a test is to make models, and write out notes, while giving myself breaks to move around. Kinesthetic learners learn best by doing the activity, like doing and figuring out given examples, rather than looking or listening to instructions.
