'Our Father in Heaven, Holy Be Your Name'. What is God's Name?

Most Christians world-wide recite 'The Prayer taught by the Lord' several times every day. "Our Father Who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name"... This is the most important prayer for the Christians especially the Catholics. If we read the Holy Bible, we can understand the fact that the 'Name of God' is as Holy and Powerful as He is, and whoever loves, venerates and calls upon His Holy Name shall witness God's guaranteed intervention and be saved.

As already mentioned in other posts in this blog, any prayer must come out from the depth of the heart of a devotee to receive an answer from God. Unfortunately most people recite prayers 'byheart' merely with their lips. In spite of their repeated prayers, they do not get any response and lose their hearts. If you want an immediate result for your prayers, do it with a whole heart and faith. If your prayers are wet with your tears, the effects are faster and instant. Glorify the Holy Name of Almighty God and ask anything in His Holy and Powerful name and see... You will see a miracle... Guaranteed! 

To praise and ask anything in God's Name, it is good if you know what is God's Name. God has revealed His Names in the Holy Bible depending upon the circumstances. To Moses He said 'I AM WHO I AM' (EXODUS 3: 13-15). Almighty God's Name is mentioned as 'YHWH' in Hebrew. YahWeh and Jehovah are derived from YHWH. The meaning of 'Yahweh' is something like 'God self existing ever'.

The meaning of the Name of God is 'Almighty', 'Holy', 'Everlasting', 'Without Beginning or end', 'Love', 'Compassion', 'Defender', 'Provider' 'Creator', etc.

Below is the list of some of the revealed Names of God in the Holy Bible. The Last disclosed Name of Almighty God is 'JESUS'! 

01. Abba (Father): In the New Testament, Jesus, the incarnated God, teaches to call God as 'Father' (Matt. 6:9)! We can call God Daddy or Papa affectionately with a personal relationship, as you call your earthly parent. In the Old Testament, none of His beloved Prophets or chosen ones dared to call Him Abba or Father.

02. Alpha & Omega: Meaning 'The Beginning and End' or the 'First and Last'.

03. El Chuwl: Meaning 'God Who Made You'.

04. El Deah: Meaning 'God Of Wisdom/Knowledge'.

05. El Elyon: Meaning 'God Most High'.

06. El Olam: Meaning 'God Everlasting'.

07. El Roi: Meaning 'God Who Sees Me'.

08. El Shaddai: Meaning 'God Almighty'.

09. Elohim: Meaning 'God The Creator'.

10. Yahweh-Bore: Meaning also is 'God The Creator'.

11. Yahweh-Nissi: Meaning 'God My Banner'.

12. Yahweh-Raah: Meaning 'God My Shepherd'.

13. Yahweh-Rapha: Meaning 'God Who Heals'.

14. Yahweh-Shalom: Meaning 'God My Peace'. 

15. Yahweh-Yireh: Meaning 'God Will Provide'

16. JESUS CHRIST: Contains All the Above Qualities of God. The Name Above All Names. the Last and final Name Revealed. The Personal Name of God The Almighty! The One and Only Name Given 2000 years ago for the Total Salvation of All mankind. The Most Powerful Name Capable to Perform Any Miracle. Call Upon this Name with 'Faith' and Experience God's immediate intervention. Praise, Glory and Thanks be to the Holy Name of God Jesus Christ. Amen.

'Lord, open my eyes, I want to see'. How to heal Spiritual Blindness?

'Lord, open my eyes. I want to see'  (Lk. 18:41) We may have read or heard  these verses in the Holy Bible several times. As the Lord Jesus approached Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. When the blind man heard the noise of the crowd going by, he asked what was happening. They told him, "Jesus of Nazareth is passing by." He called out, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" Those who led the way rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" Lord Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came near, Lord Jesus asked him, "What do you want me to do for you?" "Lord, I want to see," he replied. Then Lord Jesus said to him, "Receive your sight; your faith has healed you." Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus, praising God. When all the people saw it, they also praised God. 

As per the statistics of the global agencies conducting studies on eye-sight and blindness, the number of blind in the world is estimated to 39 million and people with vision impairment is 108 million. Due to a number of factors the number of people with vision impairment is expected to rise steeply in the years to come. 

The natural (physical) eyes are helpful to see the wondrous things in the universe. A person who sees (and studies) all these beautiful and mysterious creations, may think about the One who created and maintains them. But all people with eye-sight are not seeing the Creator behind the magnificent creations. At the same time many people who are naturally blind have strong belief in God. 

Being physically blind is empathetic and they surely deserve our support and sympathy. But being 'spiritually blind' is very pathetic and dangerous. The inability to see (due to lack of belief/faith) the occurrence of the Word of God is 'spiritual blindness'. In other words, every promise in the Holy Bible, when prayed with 'faith' is 'happened'. But spiritual blindness makes the person unable to see or feel them. It may be the evil forces (sins) that cover the eyes of the soul.

Lets go to 2 Kings 6: 10-20. The man of God (Elisha) revealed the secret plans of the enemy (Aram) to the king of Israel. When the king of Aram came to know about it, he sent horses and chariots and a great army to seize Elisha. They came by night surrounded the whole city. Now when the servant of Prophet Elisha had risen early and gone out he saw the huge army and cried out in panic. But Elisha was calm and comforted him saying that they had a bigger and more powerful army ready to protect them. But Elisha's servant could see it and perceive only after the Prophet prayed and opened his 'inner eyes'! Even though the servant could not see the huge heavenly army of horses and chariots of fire around Elisha, it was truly positioned there.

It will be very difficult to cure people who are spiritually blind because they think and claim they see, even though they do not see. The fact is that they are unaware that they are blind. The Word of God can enter into their soul, only if they humbly open their ears to God's Words shared through different channels. Through reading the Holy Bible or through His chosen representatives or through participating in Spiritual retreats/activities one can hear the Words of God. Only the Holy Spirit can cure their blindness and make them see the 'invisible' things that really exist. 

Unfortunately there are many 'practicing' faithful in the church who are spiritually blind and deaf. They think that all what they reason, believe, say or do only are right and correct (to their convenience). They neither believe nor listen to God's Words. They never bother to accept the fact and try to rectify their blindness. Such blindness and deafness may lead them to destruction. If they humbly beseech the Lord who shed His Blood and poured His Life for them, their inner eyes will obtain sight. For getting crystal clear spiritual sight, the easiest and best way is to resolve firmly and take a pledge to Pray the Holy Rosary everyday without break. The Holy Virgin Mother will surely and gladly help everyone who implores her aid to reach Her Son. After getting inner sight of the spirit, one will be able to see clearly what is good and what is bad and whether the path one travels is right or wrong. Only those who are spiritually sighted can see 'clearly and really' the Saviour of the Humanity in the Holy Eucharist. And innumerable angels and saints who ceaselessly adore Him where ever the Holy Mass is offered and/or the Holy Eucharistic Adoration is held.

We find the spiritual blindness of two of the disciples being cured at the Lord's Supper on the Easter Day. Two disciples of the Lord who were on their way to Emmaus could not 'recognize' the Lord even though He walked more than 10 km along with them and talked elaborately on 'the Messiah' starting from Moses and all the Prophets. Their eyes were opened and they could see the Lord only after 'He took Bread, gave thanks, broke it and gave them'. (Luke 24: 30-31). This incident demonstrates the fact that Participating in the Holy Mass and receiving worthily the Holy Eucharist will open blind eyes and deaf ears.

Like the servant of Prophet Elisha who could not see the heavenly army (even though it was very present there), if a person cannot feel or see the presence of the Lord in Holy places or in the fellows and poor people, let him understand that he/she is spiritually blind and beg the lord as the blind beggar in Jericho did, "Lord, open my eyes and let me see"..!

'Preachers of Divine Mercy' founded by Rev Fr Xavier Khan Vattayil

World famous Charismatic Preachers and healers Rev Fr Xavier Khan Vattayil and Rev Fr Binoy Karimaruthinkal who are presently serving as the directors of the Sehion Ministry and Sehion Retreat center respectively at Attapadi near Palakkad in Kerala started a new 'Religious Congregation' in the Syro-Malabar Church by name 'Preachers of Divine Mercy'. This is following the approval of their application (which they had applied earlier) by the Catholic Bishop of Palaghat Mar Jacob Manathodath to start a pious union particularly for priests. 

This news may be misinterpreted and circulated wrongly by vested interests that are hounding the Catholic Church to persecute it. [Some channels, media or people who are anti-Christian may even try to spread false news like Rev Fr Xavier Khan Vattayil left the Catholic Church and started his own organization]. The purpose of the anointed Charismatic Preachers is to make the Catholic Priests more pious and devoted and spread the message of the "Divine Mercy" more fervently and ardently as the world is passing towards the end, and the Compassionate Lord wants everyone under the sun to avail the 'fruit' of His inexplicable Passion and death on the Cross that is His 'Divine Mercy' free of cost or effort

These two spirit-filled priests together with Rev Sr Amy Emmanuel had earlier founded a monastery (nunnery) by name "Abhishekagni Sisters" in Palakkad for women. The aim of this Ashram is to strive for world Evangelization.

This new congregation will definitely boost up the activities of the Holy Spirit in the Charismatic Church and be a powerful one to produce many committed Priests with a thirst for souls and to spread the Divine Love and Compassion to the mankind. Some more Priests who hold similar interest and many youth who wish to become priests with similar objectives are expected to join this congregation. It will be an asset for the Catholic Church particularly the Syro Malabar Church.

Lets all wish this holy venture all success and extend every support including our prayer support for it.

Miraculous St George (Geevarghese Sahada) Churches in Kerala

St George is probably the most venerated Saint in Kerala after the Blessed Virgin Mother. St George is called in Latin as 'Georgios' and it may have turned into 'GeeVarghese' in Malayalam. Geevarghese Punyavan [who was a Roman officer in the guard of emperor diocletian and embraced martyrdom for not renouncing his faith in Lord Jesus Christ and his Church] is honored and considered as a miracle performer in Kerala, not only by the faithful of the Syro-Malabar, Malankara and Latin Catholic Churches but also by other Churches like Jacobite, Orthodox, Knanaya etc. 

Most of the Churches dedicated to St George are centers of performance of countless miracles. People of Kerala and its neighboring states without any religious differences see in Geevarghees Sahada an answer from God in their various needs and honors him as the patron saint to get protection from the fear of snakes and other harmful animals and creatures.

There are many great Churches dedicated in honour of St George in Kerala. They include the one at Edapally, Kochi (which is the biggest St George Church in India), Edathua near Thiruvalla in Alappuzha district (very famous among the devotees of Kerala and Tamil Nadu), Aruvithara in Erattupetta, Muthalkodam near Thodupuzha (one of the ancient Churches), Puthupally near Kottayam (by Malankara Orthodox), Kadamattom (by Jacobite Syrian Orthodox), Ponpally near Kottayam ( Jacobite Syrian Church) etc.

The feast (Martyrdom) day of St George is commemorated on the 23rd of April every year. The annual festival of the Saint is celebrated in the last week of April and/or the first week of May in many popular Churches. In Edathua Church the celebrations commence on the 27th of April and ends on the 7th of May every year following a grand procession with the powerful Statue of the saint. The privilege to carry the statue is granted to the devotees of Kanyakumari and other districts of the Tamil nadu state.
St George our helper, please pray for us and protect us.

emperor Emmanuel (zion) cult: The agents of fallen angels

I delayed a lot intentionally to write this article because I know as a Christian it is improper for me to judge others (Matt 7:1). However seeing the plight of some Christians who have become victims of this devilish cult and are being ruined, I am writing some facts, inspired by the Holy Spirit, that I personally saw, heard and experienced in the so called emperor Emmanuel center (I will not call it a Church). I make it clear that my intention is not to defame or hurt anyone, as I know that it will bring me no good, but to reveal the 'Truth' for the Glory of Lord Jesus Christ. If this post helps an existing member of the faction to realize the fact and manage to escape from their clutches, or if a prospective member who is being lured and tempted by one of the fallen angels to attend their class, decides not to go and keeps away from them, my purpose will be served and I can feel content that I have done my duty of warning (Ezek 33:7-9) and will get the rewards promised in the Holy Word of God (James 5: 19-20), for which alone I am writing.

In the 2000-year long history of the Catholic Church, there are a number of cults started by some dissenting members who are mostly psychos and are rebellious in nature. There are historical data of many such cults that were prevalent in this century. Some were large with an enrolled membership of up to fifty thousand, while some others were comparatively small. But most of these groups had a quick growth and faded away after few years. Different cults were infamous in different ways. While some cults were notorious for their committing of mass suicide together with their leader and disciples, some others were involved in anti-social and uncivilized activities! Whatever is their motto and modus operandi, they all succeeded to some extend in attracting some thoughtless foolish people and spoiling their lives and ruining their souls.

We have been witnessing that even hard core terrorists and criminals who act as the representatives of devil and indulge in looting, killing and destruction have followers. These stupid people who follow them have their own absurd reasons and senseless explanations which an average person cannot understand or digest. Some disgruntled people who fail to get the expected position or recognition in the organization they belong, oppose it and fabricate some new twisted doctrines and search for like-minded disobedient and dissatisfied mentalities and attract them. 

This is what has actually happened with joseph ponnara, the brain behind the 'emperor Emmanuel cult'. He was moving with the Catholic Charismatic team and probably his personal pride to become the head might have driven him out of the team to start a cult by presenting the Holy Word of God in a twisted manner according to his whims and fancies. When one dissociates himself from God, naturally satan will be ready to take advantage of the situation and will be at his aid to use him as a 'powerful' tool to damage the Church of Lord Jesus. Obviously he received the help and strength of the devil to give long blasphemous lectures tirelessly for many hours. Also as many people say he was granted special powers by the dark angels to brainwash gullible and arrogant people to believe him and make his followers. Most of his classes were abusing the Catholic Church and the Priests/heads of the Church with whom he was working until then. 

When I was told about this new center, I attended a class in 2014 (not to test it) thinking that it is from God and Word of God is shared there. The atmosphere seemed conducive at first. But when I started seeing and listening to his non-stop slanderous speech about the Catholic Church and all other Christian denominations and other religions with malicious intention, I was shocked and started getting doubts. How can a servant of God speak in such vulgar manner on a dias (in a place they call as Church) where he is supposed to share the Holy Bible. There after when I observed I could understand clearly that the Biblical versus spoken there were mostly twisted and manipulated (or picked from different places in the Bible mentioned at different circumstances) and presented as ponnara's gospel. Most of the audience, not knowing this or having insufficient Biblical knowledge, were sitting and listening spellbound and enjoying his abusive speech with frequent applauding. As he was presenting a different message other than what is mentioned in the Holy Bible, the Word of God reminded me, "But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God's curse!" (Gal. 1:8)

Ulike other retreat centers, where doubts and differences of opinions will be tried to solve, ponnara repeatedly asked any participants who differed with his views to quit the place silently. I could see the number of participants decreasing. Also I noticed some devout Catholics who did not agree to his profane talk in the beginning days, raising hands in support on the final day. I affirm that I could escape the trap with the help of the Blessed Virgin Mother, through reciting the Rosary Prayers many times.

Emperor Emmanuel (Zion) Church cult founded (by joseph ponnara the agent of the dark angel) and operating from Muriyad near Irinjalakuda in Thrissur district of Kerala is not a Christian grouping. It has some odd and strange teachings that change frequently. There are apparently some satan worshippers operating in some parts of Kerala since long, but as they could not succeed much in deceiving and trapping the faithful, satan might have used joseph ponnara and team to carryout the work of devil in a smooth and appealing manner.

Some of the uncanny teachings / facts of emperor Emmanuel cult:

1. They don't believe in the triune God which is an unfathomable, and yet an unmistakable doctrine in the Holy Scripture and the foundation of any Christian Belief. (similar to jehovah's witness)

2. They preach that Lord Jesus has already come to the world in human form the second time. (satan's preaching to mislead)

3. Joseph Ponnara used to declare repeatedly that Emmanuel would land straight away in the 'ark shaped building' constructed at their compound and only he and his followers will be raptured alive straight to heaven. (Even after his untimely death a year ago, many of his followers continue to remain to be blind. When asked about his death (against his prophecy) they say he is called prior to heaven to stand at the gates of heaven to welcome his followers! (maveric false teaching)

4. He used to predict and refer about the rebirth of a 'saviour' then, and now as the expected child being a girl, they say it is 'Mother Mary'! (blasphemous teaching)

5. The Catholic Church is the greatest enemy of ponnara and the agents of the hell. Though they use the Holy Bible printed by the Catholic POC, their primary work is to oppose the Church in every way. They collect the negative news of the Universal Church and circulate it and find some pleasure out of it. They show contempt and throw away sacred statues and images of the Lord who saved them and His mother who are still praying for them. They wear rosaries without a crucifix! They make feasting on the Good Friday when the whole universe observe fasting, prayers and penance. (all these point doubtlessly their actions are satanic)

6. While Christianity advocates for love, forgiveness and unity, they preach hatred and disunity. Majority of the members of emperor Emmanuel cult have broken relationships with own family members and others. 

7. All Christians pray fervently for peace and happiness throughout the world. They also pray for the safety and security of everyone on this planet. But, you may not believe, the members of the above mentioned cult pray for the occurrence of wars and natural calamities. They say these things will fulfill the 'will' of God.

"Yet these people slander whatever they do not understand, and the very things they do understand by instinct--as irrational animals do--will destroy them". (Jude 1:10)

Most members of the emperor Emmanuel cult are rigid fanatics. They will go to any extend to trap a soul in to their sect. They have to do this to get maximum possible number of people, as the number of people leaving them also is on the rise.

Dear Reader, if you have gone to this place or attended their classes, please quit them immediately. If you are being invited or insisted by one of their members to attend their first class, please do not oblige. Resist firmly any offers or sweet words or deeds. Their modus-operandi is like that of the ISIS. They first tell anyone nicely to 'just come and attend once'. They will repeatedly tell initially there is NO force or compulsion to join them. But it is very difficult for anyone to withstand their pressure and threatening after attending a class..! 



Lets pray for the repentance and return of these lost souls. Lets also pray for the soul of ponnara joseph who might be regretting and feeling self-condemnation as he had served the Lord for sometime before he was possessed.

Please read the following Bible Versus and meditate upon them with the help of the Holy Spirit.

1. Lord Jesus is the head of the Church and the Church is His Body. (Ephe. 1:22-23)

2. Do not let anyone who have lost connection with the Head (Jesus) deceive you ... iColo. 2: 18-19)

3. Let no one deceive you with empty words...  (Ephe. 5:6)


4.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but ... against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Eph. 6:12)

5. "I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel;... (Gal. 1: 6-9)

6. "For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed..." (2 Cor. 11:3-4)

7. "Brothers and sisters,stand firm and hold fast to the traditions that you were taught by us..." (2 Thes. 2:15)

8. "The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron". (1 Timothy 4:1)

9. "Whoever teaches otherwise and does not agree with the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ..." (1 Timothy 6:3-4)

10. "...so that you may instruct certain people not to teach any different doctrine, and not to occupy themselves with myths and endless genealogies that promote speculations rather than the divine training..." (1 Timo: 1: 3-7)

11.  "For the time is coming when people will not put up with sound doctrine, but having itching ears, they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own desires, 4 and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander away to myths" (2 Timothy 4:3-4)

12. "They profess to know God, but they deny him by their actions. They are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good work" (Titus 1:16)

13.  "But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive opinions. They will even deny the Master who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves". (2 Peter 2:1)

14. "Whereas angels, though greater in might and power, do not bring against them a slanderous judgment from the Lord. These people, however, are like irrational animals, mere creatures of instinct, born to be caught and killed. They slander what they do not understand, and when those creatures are destroyed, they also will be destroyed (2 Peter 2:11-12)

15.  "Children, it is the last hour! As you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. From this we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they did not belong to us; for if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us. But by going out they made it plain that none of them belongs to us.(1 John 2:18-19)

16. "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God; for many false prophets have gone out into the world". (1 John 4:1)

17.  'Those who say, “I love God,” and hate their brothers or sisters, are liars; for those who do not love a brother or sister whom they have seen, cannot love God whom they have not seen' (1 John 4:20)

Kuravilangad Marth Mariam Church made Major Archiepiscopal Archdeacon Pilgrim Center

St Mary's (Marth Mariam) Syro-Malabar Catholic Forane Church at Kuravilangad in the Diocese of Pala in central Kerala, which is one of the oldest Nasrani Churches in India and a famous pilgrim center in the state, is elevated to the highest degree and is renamed as ''Major Archiepiscopal Archdeacon Pilgrim Church' by the Syro-Malabar Bishops' Synod held recently. The official declaration about this was made by the Major Arch-Bishop of the Church, Cardinal George Alencherry after the blessings of the beautifully renovated Church on 21st January, 2018. With this announcement, this Holy global Pilgrim Centre dedicated to the Mother of God becomes the first Church in the Syro Malabar rite to get this rarest title.

Marth Mariam Church at Kuravilangad possesses many historical and traditional values. This is one of the rarest Churches in the world (like the one in Lourdes in France) where the site for the construction of the building was shown by none other than the Blessed Mother of the Saviour of the humanity who is affectionately and devotionally called as 'Muthiamma'! Ever since the creation of the Church in the first century, it has been serving as a place of solace for the numerous people who throng this Pilgrim Center without any discrimination of caste, creed, religion, region or position. 

After officially announcing the decision of the Bishops' Synod in the presence of Bishops Mar Joseph Kallarangatt, Mar Joseph Srampickal and Mar Joseph Pallickaparambil and the vicar Rev Dr Joseph Thadathil and many other Priests, nuns and a great multitude of faithful, the Cardinal Mar Alencherry said that Kuravilangad is the Jerusalem of the St Thomas Christians (Nasrani) of India. 

The annual festival of the Pilgrim Center is celebrated with great pomp and gaiety. The feast is clubbed with a 3 days fasting known as moonnu nombu, every year on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 3 weeks before the starting of the holy season of lent. This year they are observed on 22nd, 23rd and 24th January, 2018.

Out of the many attractions including the ancient and magnificent art works that announce the history and heritage of the Church, the Relic of the Holy Cross (on which Lord Jesus died), the water spring created by Muthi Amma (that never runs dry) and the great Church bell (which is the biggest in the whole of Asia) all stand as the culmination of Charms. The water from the spring which is available for the public to drink on Sundays and Fridays is a guaranteed cure for any illness (however incurable they are), if taken with faith in the Mother of Christ.

Holy Mass Timings:

The Church is equipped with sufficient number of Priests to cater to the spiritual needs of an enrolled membership of more than 3000 families and an uncountable number of visiting pilgrims daily. Holy Masses and other Sacraments specially the Sacrament of reconciliation are performed throughout the day. Please check for the Holy Mass Timings here.

Please make a visit to this Pilgrim Church when ever possible and direct your friends and others who are in dire need of the Mother's help.

Shamshabad Eparchy Inaugurated with Mar Raphael Thattil as the 1st Bishop

The Syro-Malabar Catholic Church, the second largest Christian grouping in India (after the Roman Catholic Latin rite) has officially instituted its 31st Diocese in Shamshabad (Telengana State) which was constituted by Pope Francis recently on 10th of October, 2017. In a magnificent and devotional ceremony held at CKR and KTR Convention hall in Santhom Nagar in Hyderabad, which was participated by Cardinals, Arch Bishops and many Bishops, Priests, Nuns and the public, the Major Arch Bishop of the Syro Malabar Church, Cardinal Mar George Alencherry formally dedicated the Diocese to Vatican and enthroned Mar Raphael Thattil as the first Bishop of this largest Eparchy of the Church, and entrusted him with the great and hard responsibility of overseeing the 'Mission work' spread across a vast and difficult area, which is the primary duty of the Church assigned by her Master.

As the construction of the new Cathedral Church for the Shamshabad Diocese is in progress, St Alphonsa Syro Malabar Church at Kukatpally in Hyderabad will serve temporarily as the pro-cathedral and Bishop's House. 

The responsibility of gathering and serving more than 1,30,000 faithful spread across 100 towns in the country (out side Kerala state) is vested in the Bishop. He is to cater to the spiritual needs of the faithful belonging to 11 operative and 7 under construction Churches, with the help of about 88 Priests and few hundred nuns now. 

"The Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes" (Psalm 118:23). We can see in the history of the world and the history of the church, God has chosen, called and empowered some people as per His will depending upon the situations and needs. Even though the elections of people are proven to be wrong, God's selection never fails. To lead HIS Church on earth He has anointed Holy Father Pope Francis and to administer his vibrant Syro-Malabar Church, HE has weighed, called and authorized loyal and devoted Shepherds like Cardinal Mar George Alencherry, Mar Raphael Thattil, Mar Sebastian Vaniyapurackal etc to guide His Church in these hard and difficult days.

The activities of the dark forces are very prevalent in the world and in the Church also. satan is more cunning than ever. he takes attractive and enchanting guises to mislead everyone, if possible even the chosen ones. Nowadays we see in the Church, how he shows the sweetness of power and positions, and uses the servants of God as his tools to damage the Church who the Bride of Christ..! 

Dear fellow believers, do not be deceived by the vanity the world shows you. The only aim of every Christian in this world should be eternal Life in the Kingdom of God! Whatever the world can offer will pass away after a short period. If you can believe what our Lord has in store for you,  [1 Cor 2:9] nothing in this world can entice you and you will definitely gain strength of God and help of His Mother, through the recitation of Rosary Prayers regularly, to resist the traps of all evil.

Please be vigilant and pray for we do not know the time and hour!

Good News to Indian Christians! Persecutions intensifies in India!

(Priests and others made to sit on the floor of the police station)
Even though the latest incident of assault, atrocity and humiliation in Satna of Madhya Pradesh inflicted on the innocent Catholic Christian Carol-singing group consisting of Respectable Priests, Seminarians and faithful, by some Hindu militants and the local police is being condemned by the national and international community, it must be considered as a Happy News by the followers of Lord Jesus Christ, who are eagerly waiting for the fulfillment of the 'Word of God' and rewards in thousand folds!

Christians are the highly persecuted human race under the sun. Even though it is a painful fact, it must be regarded as a matter of delight for every Christian (believer of Christ) as he/she is getting a rare opportunity to get a small share of the Master's suffering for being and doing good and the reward for which will be unimaginably very high . The Church which received formation with the Precious and Holy Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ grew with the blood of many virtuous martyrs. With an intention to finish off the Christian faith many emperors, kings and principalities in the history of the world have very cruelly persecuted the early Christians whose innocent blood not only helped them receive their 'special rewards' in heaven, but also helped greatly in the spread of Christian Faith on earth. Had hired hit-man Samandar Singh of Madhya Pradesh not stabbed to death Sr. Rani Maria in 1995, how would have she received the great honor and title of 'Blessed Martyr' both in Heaven and on earth? 

Ever since Modi's BJP government came to power in India (though there were religious persecutions reported earlier too), the level of persecution on minorities particularly Christians has been rising steeply as per the statistics and reports.

With such heinous incidents that are not condemned or dealt with firmly by the rulers or officials, the image of the country in the international arena is terribly being damaged. According to OpenDoorsUsa.org, the persecution rank of Christians has reached 15 in India since the present government came to power in 2014. It is quite surprising to note that the situation in India which is known as the largest democratic and secular country in the world is just few levels after notorious and trouble-torn countries with dictators like North Korea, Somalia, Nigeria, Pakistan etc. It also surprises that the persecution level on Christians in India is higher than China..! It is reported that an attack on Christians is recorded every 40 hours in India..!

Christians while being tormented on behalf of their Faith, must remember the Words of God listed below which will minimize their pains. If intolerant rulers like Narendra Damodardas Modi who is a product of right-wing RSS, and cowardly and corrupt officials do not support silently these fanatics, how then will the Holy Word of God accomplish?

Dear beloved persecuted Christian, please offer your sufferings for the sake of God's Kingdom. Pray for your persecutors as the Lord did:

"Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." (Luke 23:34)

The rewards the Lord is keeping ready for those who bear even a small amount of insult or pain is beyond our imagination. It is very very big...! 

"Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me..." (Matt. 5:11-12).

"If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first" (John. 15:18).

"Do not be surprised my brothers and sisters if the world hates you" (1 John 3:13).

Please ponder over these Holy Words of God through St Peter (1 Peter 4:12-17), the first Pope of the Church: 

"Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name".

Let all the Christians world-wide pray for their suffering brethren so that they may get grace to bear all the pains and also pray for their abusers for their conversion of mind like St Paul. Please avoid all sins that no one will be punished as a criminal, as the Divine Word above warns.

Pope says 'the Poor are our Passport to Paradise': World Day of the Poor 19-11-17

(image courtesy: catholicnewsagency.com)


The Universal Catholic Church observed the 19th of November 2017 as the first 'World Day of the Poor'. Hereafter the 33rd Sunday in ordinary time is to be commemorated as 'International Day of the Poor'.

Speaking on the occasion, the Holy Father Pope Francis said that the poor people are our passport to get into Paradise. Hence they are a boon to all as they are instrumental to attain our eternal goal. While giving message he quoted the 1st letter of St John from the Bible chapter “Little children, let us not love in word or speech, but in deed and in truth” (1 Jn 3:18). So to pave a shortcut way to the Paradise is very easy and it is at anyone's reach. Because more than half of the world's population are starving and about 80% of the global people are poor.

The Pope also said that it is not only the worldly bread that we must share with the poor but also the spiritual Word of God. The poor people represent the Lord Jesus Christ. Because HE left all His riches and was born as the poorest of the poor in this world. And the Good News of the Birth of the Saviour of the humanity was first made known to the poor people.
The Lord Jesus has categorically stated that it is very difficult for the rich to enter the Kingdom of God (Matt. 19:23). He has said that "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven" (Matt. 5:3). Through His Holy Word, He is repeatedly issuing the warning message of possessing wealth and the dangers of having riches in the world. But many people including many chosen ones are seen amassing wealth which may be a dangerous hurdle for them to enter the heaven!

In the final judgement the Lord is going to reward only them those who rendered services to the needy with love and compassion. Like food for the hungry, drink for the thirsty, accommodation for the homeless, company for the neglected, etc..

To get a passport to go to another country may be little difficult and expensive. But to get a passport to reach the Paradise in a shortcut route is very easy. One need to have only a liberal heart to share what one has with his needy neighbour. This act will take him to paradise as per the Word of Lord Jesus and His servant the Pope Francis!

Let us all strive hard to reach our ultimate goal, The Paradise!
God Bless you.

Miraculous St Anthony's Shrine Kottayam, Efficacious Novena Prayer

St Anthony's Shrine in Nagampadom of Kottayam in central Kerala of India is a sure spot for any devotee who approaches here with strong faith in the Almighty Lord God Jesus Christ and His Blessed Virgin Mother and His devoted servant St Anthony who lived in Padua of Portugal from 15-08-1195 to 13-06-1231 loving, pleasing, obeying and serving his Master with whole heart and strength. There are hundreds and thousands of people who share their testimonies of receiving  impossible matters or needs. Many of the miraculous favours received by the pilgrims from above are too good to believe for the medical science or the mortal imaginations.

Fatima Matha Sandesh Yathra (Fatima Message Journey) Kerala

2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the 'Fatima Apparitions' of the Blessed Virgin Mother, which is one of the most important events in the world history after the Birth, Death and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. The year 2017 also marks the golden jubilee of the 'Charismatic Movement' which is a tool of the Holy Spirit to save the humanity that is going towards destruction by giving it a sense of sinfulness and a heart for reconciliation and renewal. 

The 3 main Messages (requests) given by the Mother of God at Fatima are:

1. Penance: (turning away from sins and turning back to God. Many souls are losing the heaven and getting lost by inheriting hell)

2. Pray the Rosary: (Increase the number of Rosaries for self, family, conversion of sinners, world, souls in purgatory)

3. Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Blessed Virgin Mother: The Mother Mary implores us to surrender ourselves and our near and dear ones to Her Immaculate Heart for protection from the enemies)

To spread these messages and to remind the Faithful to increase the number of daily Rosary Prayers, the Kerala Catholic Bishop's Council (KCBC) decided to hold 'Fatima Matha Sandesh Yathra' (a tour with the Sacred Statue of the Blessed Mother brought from Fatima) in all the 31 Catholic Dioceses in Kerala covering about 600 Churches. Kerala Catholic Charismatic Commission is making all arrangements for the successful conducting of the Centenary Celebrations of the Fatima Apparitions in a grant manner.

It was rendered the first reception on August 16 at St Mary's Forane Church, Thlipparambu in Kannur District of Kerala.
