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 lessen. 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 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. 

"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 these lost souls. Lets also pray for the soul of ponnara joseph who might be regretting and feeling self-condemnation as he 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. " 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, 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:

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.

Many of the miraculous favours received by the pilgrims from above are too good to believe for the medical science or the mortal imaginations.

All good things and blessing flow only from Lord Jesus Christ Who is True and only God and the fountain of all goodness.

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. 

The Fatima Sandesh Yatra was inaugurated on 15th of August, 2017 at the Lumen Youth Center Ground, Aloor in Iringalakkuda during the conclusion ceremony of the World Malayali Charismatic Meet and to conclude on 28th of October 2017 at Vallarpadam Basilica. It was rendered the first reception on August 16 at St Mary's Forane Church, Thlipparambu in Kannur District of Kerala.

The itinerary (schedule) of reception to the Sacred and Miraculous Statue of the Blessed Virgin Mother from Fatima (in Portugal) is given below. If it has covered your area (zone) and you have missed to have a sight of it, venerate and pray before it, you are urged with love to travel to one of the nearest areas and have a darshan of the Mother of the Savior of the humanity and get umpteen blessings as this is a once in a lifetime Opportunity. Any trouble or hardship taken for this act is worthwhile. The Holy Father Pope Francis has awarded special indulgence to everyone who venerates the Sacred Statue and prays before it.

'Aatmamitra' The last (and best) resort for youth in despair

The world is changing rapidly. Life has become very much easier and cosier than before. Science and technology is growing day-by-day and hour-by-hour..!

In pace with the fast growth of technology mainly mobile, internet and video games, the number of people (particularly the children and youth) who succumb to the trap laid by the devil is also increasing alarmingly.  Added to this, the money-centered modern families that lack in love, values and prayers also become the manufacturing centers of individuals who too have seldom values , ethics or discipline in life and they become desperate in the early stage of life itself and want to put an end to it for silly momentary reasons.

Added to this, mobile games like 'blue whale' etc discovered by satan also do thier best to spoil the lives of the present day youth. Misuse and overuse of internet and social medias like facebook, whatsapp etc are also found to be the main causes for the damage of the present generation.

Children of the families where love, order and prayers are lacking, get attracted to uncommon and perverted love that are deceiving and dangerous, and by the time they begin realize the facts, it is too late and they also think that there  is no more meaning to live and try to end the life which is very precious and granted for only once here in this planet. 

In such circumstances, there is one organization that strives sincerely for a remedy to the destruction and degradation of the present day generation. It is none other than Atma Mitra, a noble initiative of the Kerala Jesuit Mission designed and founded by Rev Fr Toby Joseph Kozhuppakkalam. It is situated at 'Sameeksha' campus, a center for study and dialogues of diversified Indian spirituality in Kalady of Ernakulam district.

Atma Mitra which means 'soul friend' or 'friend for life' is a dream project of the founder priest Rev Fr Toby who is an eminent psychological counselor and personality development trainer. The Director Missionary of the not-for-profit organization who works day and night selflessly and tirelessly, has by now saved so many valuable young lives from committing suicides. It is his passion and Divine Calling to serve among the distressed persons particularly the teenagers and youth, without any discrimination of caste, creed, religion or regional barriers. Even if given a missed call to the mobile number, one will get a call back immediately.

There is a 24x7 help line number accessible for the benefit of the hopeless. 

It is (+91) 85475-97883, 8281-676741. And the land line number is: 0484-2466080

The Director can be contacted through e-mail also:

Matt 5:16. Let your light shine before others to Glorify your Father in Heaven

"Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and Glorify your Father in Heaven" (Matt 5:16). 

Lord Jesus Christ, Who is the incarnate Son of God gave away everything He had for us- His Body, Blood, Spirit, Power, Love, Compassion... He was too generous to give His own Almighty Heavenly Father and Virgin Mother as our Father and Mother! It is an act that cannot happen in the normal human understanding. God is far beyond the reach of human beings in everything. God is very holy and man is sinful. God is almighty and man is nothing in comparison to God. Still out of His unstinting Love for us, our Lord Jesus gave us His Father and asked us not to bring disgrace to Him with our devilish behavior. 

It is said that 'Yatha Raja, tatha praja' (As the king so the people) or 'Yatha Pitha, tatha Putra' (like father, like son). If a person is well mannered and good, it will bring good name and fame to his parents particularly his father. Likewise if a person behaves wickedly, he will put his parents to dishonor and shame. 

This is what the great Indian poet Thiruvalluvar also has written, "Makan thanthaikku aatrum udhavi ivan thanthai ennotran kol enum sol" [The greatest filial service of a son is to behave in such a manner and make the world wonder and ask what penance has his father performed to be blessed with such a son.]

Our Lord and Savior has asked us his disciples (or pleaded us) to conduct in such a way that the gentiles see the good deeds of the Christians and glorify the Heavenly Father who is Almighty and Eternal. If a person claims to be a Christian and engages in criminal activities, he is bringing dishonor not only to the Heavenly Father, but also to our Lord Who laid down His Life for us and to HIS Holy Church on this earth. 

If a Christian leader or politician (or a person with a Christian name) involves in corruptions or cheating or any other criminal activities what disgrace he is bringing to the Lord and His Church. If anyone has committed and involved in any unlawful activities, he/she should shun that path and seek God's pardon and forgiveness immediately. 

The recent damage inflicted by the Kerala based priest to the local church through his heinous act is horrible. But it will not affect the Church of the Lord. Even one among the 12 Apostles of the Lord was a traitor but it was not the end of the Church. There were some priests and religious people like this in the Church who slowly neglected their personal prayers (and Rosary Prayers) due to their busy 'service' activities and fell prey for the evil spirits. Power and positions are always dangerous and may slowly widen the gap between one's religious calling. May this serve as a warning to those anointed persons who devote much of their time for other activities neglecting the most important thing in their lives that it Prayer (and the personal relationship with the Lord and His Mother). If any faithful of the Lord happens to fall in any trap of satan, he/she should immediately detest the pleasure of sins and run away to cleanse him/herself through the sacrament of Confession. Otherwise satan will see that the child of God is completely ruined. 

It is highly advisable for the Christians not to use or to minimize the use the internet and social medias like facebook, twitter, whatsapp etc as there are hidden traps laid by the devil. If it cannot be avoided, use it very carefully, diligently and prayerfully. Regular reciting of the Rosary Prayer will definitely protect every child of God from falling in to the attractions of the world and create a feeling of contempt to the worldly attractions like movies, serials, televisions, liquor, parties, etc... 

"Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us." (1 Peter 2:12)

Please Read the Holy Word of God and pray the Rosary and other Prayers regularly. Help others also to walk in the path of God. Lets try to glorify the Heavenly Father by showing our good deeds before others and avoiding anything that is evil. 

God Bless!

An Indian Priest visits hell, purgatory and Heaven: Live video Testimony

This is not a fabricated story or imagination. It is a real incident. It happened about 30 years ago. To a matured Christian Priest. As it is strongly felt that it is very much necessary to mention it now, to bring to the notice of them who conveniently refuse to believe or neglect the very facts told by Lord Jesus about the existence of hell, purgatory and Heaven, I am listing here the own testimony of the Catholic Priest who personally was taken to these places and was allowed to have a first hand experience.

God's words clearly mention in the Holy Bible about the life after death. The Lord has categorically stated that 'the hell is full of fire that does not diminish and worms that do not die' (Mark 9:48). Unfortunately many people now-a-days are seen making statements and arguments in different ways trying to say that the hell full of unquenching fire is not true with a 'nice' motive of removing the fear of hell from the human minds..! It is very unfortunate that there are some preachers (including some Bishops and Priests) who deliver soft and smooth sermons with their own findings like 'the hell is an imaginary state of mind or the hell is in this world only' etc.

The Lord Jesus while saying the incident (true story) of the 'rich man and Lazarus' (Luke 16: 23-25) tells how the fiery the hades are, It is not a parable but He says, "There was a rich man...."

Some Saints were allowed to visit the hell, purgatory and Heaven. After seeing the plight of people in the fiery hell, they shivered and spent the rest of their lives in intercessory prayers. 

Rev Father Jose Maniyangat who is now actively conducting a full time healing ministry in the USA tells about how he met with a fatal accident while he was going for Parish duty when he was in Kerala and how he was taken by his guardian Angel after his soul left his body to see the hell, purgatory and Heaven, and how he met the Lord Jesus, Blessed Mother and St Joseph. 

In his testimony the father says that he was surprised to see some persons in the hell whom he had known earlier. They included some Bishops and Priests whom he never expected to see there.

Please forward/share this blog post with others to remind and warn them about the eternal life after death. Lets also Pray earnestly that no one goes to hell........because our Lord has shed His precious blood for the salvation of the whole humanity.......

Merry Christmas 2016! (Not Merry X-Mas) Christ+Mass

The Holy Season of Advent 2016 has come to an end with the dawn of the Christmas Day just now today. 'Advent' is the season when the faithful world-wide wait eagerly and prepare mentally and spiritually for the 'Coming' of the Lord Jesus Christ to be born as a human in this world.

Many people who were with us to celebrate the last Christmas 2015 are not alive to see this Christmas. By the grace of Lord Jesus, you and me are still alive to see, witness and live one more Christmas. Thank You God!

Some people spend time discussing what to add before Christmas! Whether it is 'Merry Christmas' or 'Happy Christmas'. Even though there is slight difference in these words, Christmas is a celebration that brings merry making and happiness.

Christmas is the only festival celebrated throughout the world, and in every parts of the universe, by most of the humanity. Christmas brings Joy, Happiness, Peace, Prosperity and Blessings to one and all. Because The Lord Jesus Christ took the incarnation of a man to be offered as a ransom for the redemption of the entire mankind, without any discrimination of race, religion, region etc, Christmas is not the festival of just Christians but every human beings.

Christmas was shortly mentioned as X-Mas in the yesteryears. It is because the Greek letter X was pronounced as 'Kye' which is the first letter of Christ in Greek language. Even though Christmas was written as X Mas in greeting cards and letters, it was pronounced as 'Christ Mass'. But with arrival of internet the meanings of the letters are misinterpreted. As per Mathematical explanations, X denotes a person who has no name. X is also mentioned to represent filthy things now-a-days. 

The commercial world sees Christmas with its business eye only. Beautiful decorations and stars are hung on business establishments. But there is no Christ there. It is painful to understand that even Western countries that gave birth to a huge number of great Saints and Martyrs is calling Christmas season as holiday season removing the Holy Name of the Hero of the season from His own Birthday Celebrations. And even in the developing countries, some Christians are giving more importance to the external celebrations only, very comfortably forgetting and neglecting the real spirit of Christmas that is spreading and sharing Joy, Peace and happiness.

May the Child Jesus give you and all your dear ones a 'good heart' to experience His Peace as the Bible says "Glory to God in the highest and Peace to those with goodwill...!

The Year of Mercy ends, Doors of Churches close, But God's Mercy never ends!

The Universal Catholic Church has been celebrating the 'Extraordinary Great Jubilee Year of Divine Mercy' since 8th December, 2015. The official celebrations that commenced on the inaugural day with the symbolic opening of the great Door of the Basilica of St Peter by Pope Francis, and lasted nearly for an year, are ending with the Feast of Christ the King on 20th November, 2016. 

The Holy Jubilee Year of God's Mercy was observed with the motto, "Be Merciful like the Father" (Lk. 6;36). The main purpose of announcing this year was to give an opportunity for the members of the Catholic Christian community to practice the virtue of mercy and compassion to his fellow human beings as God the Father is showing to his sinful children without any conditions. It was also a golden opportunity for those people who left the Church and the Love of the compassionate Father for different reasons to come back to the main stream without any (normal) conditions or traditional punishments. 

Hundreds of thousands of people entered through the specified Doors of Mercy of Churches or Basilicas throughout the world during this period and experienced the sweetness of the Love, Forgiveness and Mercy of the Divine Father. Those who observed this Jubilee with devotion as instructed by the Holy Father Pope Francis (who is authorized by the Lord to grant) also received the special blessings and pardoning for all their sins. All those who received God's Mercy must preserve It and radiate It to the world.

There are still many people who could not take advantage of this special opportunity. Even though the Church closes the great Doors of St Peter's Basilica in Rome as a symbolic sign to wind-up the Jubilee Year of Divine Mercy, the ever flowing Mercy of the Divine Father never never ends or stops as HE is Mercy Himself (Ps 136). His Mercy and Compassion follows everyone until one's last moment in this world. As no one ever knows when is his/her final moments on this earth would be, it is imperative for each and everyone to rush to any Church as early as possible and seek the Forgiveness of sins from any Catholic Priest and receive God's unlimited and never ending Mercy and eternal Love.

Syro Malabar Church NOT to wash women's feet on Holy Thursday 2016

The Major Arch Bishop of the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church of Kerala, Cardinal George Alencherry has made an announcement regarding the female participation in 'the washing of the feet ceremony' during the 2016 Holy Thursday Mass of the Lord's last Supper. 

'Washing of the feet' (mandatum) is a custom practised by the Catholic Church, taking example from the 'Humble Act' of the Divine Master who surprised His 12 Apostles by kneeling before each and washing and kissing everyone's feet during His Last Supper with them on Holy Thursday, before His Great Passion and death on the Cross on Good Friday. This great exemplary act of the Greatest Master before His disciples to teach them to show in action the value of humility and love to one another is being carried out by His followers throughout the world. Ever since the last Supper of the Lord in 33 AD, in every Catholic Church, the heads of the Church starting from the Pope, Cardinals, bishops or Priests, this event is performed in memory of the Lord at His command. Such a rare ceremony is performed only in the Catholic Church under the sun where a master or teacher kneeling before his disciple and washing and kissing his foot.

Until recently in the universal Catholic church, representing the Lord's 12 disciples, 12 men were invited by the priest (celebrant of the Holy Mass) to participate in this ceremony. But during the Holy Thursday ceremonies of the present Pontiff Francis after his election as the Pope, he brought about a change in the customary practice and chose some abandoned and neglected persons from the society which included some prisoners and women. 

Later this year according to the suggestions of the Holy Father, the Roman Missal numbers 10 and 11 some slight changes were initiated. The earlier wordings on the 'washing of the feet' rite said, "The pre-chosen men are accompanied by the pastor (priest)". But after the editing, the word 'men' are modified to 'people' and the present text reads as "The pre-chosen among the people of God are accompanied by the priest".  This to include everyone for the washing of the foot rite without any gender discrimination. But it is misunderstood by some people as an order of the pope to include women compulsorily for this holy ceremony by giving 50 percent reservation to female gender. 

Putting an end to this confusion, the Head of the Syrian Catholic Church, Cardinal George Alencherry issued a statement that in the universal Syro Malabar Catholic Church, women will not be included or invited for the washing of the feet during the Holy (Maundy) Thursday services on March 24, 2016. The Arch Bishop made it clear that a decision on this regard will be taken in a Church synod to be held later this year.

Catholic Christian Nurses Ministry: Glorifying the Lord through Service

When we hear and see on TV channels and in media the committed services of the Catholic Nurses spread around the world particularly in the middle east while on duty, and the various Spiritual and social activities they render during week off, we feel proud and thank God for enabling these brothers and sisters who bring pride and glory to the Lord who called them and the Church that formed them and the state of Kerala which sent them.

The nurses from Kerala are preferred throughout the world. This is because of their dedication to the work. The dedicated and sincere service of Kerala nurses abroad is bringing not only foreign revenue, but also good name to the state. Many nurses opt for nursing as their profession not just by chance, but by choice. Even if someone became a nurse by chance, they transform in to a worthy nurse thanks to the 'Word of God' which is deeply buried in them.

When many of these nurses realize their 'calling' and extend their services to the sick and the suffering with compassion and caring, they are indirectly glorifying the Lord. When they become able to see Lord Jesus Christ in these suffering people, and serve the with love and patience, they become equal to the venerable persons like Mother Teresa.  Even though a nurse is doing job as an employment for earning money, by having proper attitude and changing the mindset, the same work can be turned into a great Missionary work. When a nurse devotes his/her job as a vocation and performs his/her duty seeing the invisible Lord in the patients, he/she can find happiness in the job and endure the numerous 'crosses' happily and proudly.

May the Lord Jesus Christ strengthen all nurses who are part of the Nurses Ministry in the gulf countries and bless their near and dear ones abundantly. Through this nurses ministry, they gather together and hold prayers and other charitable activities. If all  Indian nurses (particularly the Christians) take example from them and form and operate similar ministries in the areas of their work, they will be instrumental to the spreading of the Kingdom of God. Such fellowships will strengthen the novice and wavering individuals also. This will also bring good tidings to the lives of many who are in trials and misfortunes.

God Bless....
