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.

'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.
