USCCB Podcast of the Readings:


And Jesus wept.  John 11:35

In today’s Gospel , Jesus weeps over the death of his friend Lazarus  and at the sorrow of Mary and Martha. Jesus shows his human sympathy , compassion and emotions towards the mortal death of a person.  Human Mortal Death is the Curse of Sin by our first Parents and Jesus comes in to this Earth to reverse this curse of Sin to bring eternal life. When Jesus weeps at the death of Lazarus , he weeps upon the passed on pain and suffering of Human Being for no fault of theirs but introduces him self as the reliever of that pain and suffering of Body, mind and Spirit. Jesus proves it by raising Lazarus from  death.

If we see in Jesus mission on this earth, maximum miracles are done of healing of the body, so Jesus is not only a Savior of our Spirit but Body and mind as well. Jesus manifested his divine power on the Human Flesh and healed the flesh. St. Paul in the second reading writes it beautifully :  If the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you,the one who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also,through his Spirit dwelling in you.

The power of the Salvation and the love of God poured out in to our heart keeps the flesh  from corruption , Jesus body was protected from corruption, we see many saint bodies remain  from corruption. The spirit of God who lives in our bodies is the author of our life and creator of heaven and Earth so the death has been defeated in him and life in it’s fullness is in him, so  the Human death has no power over our bodies. If we live in fullness of Christ , we also can be resurrected like Jesus because it is a promise of Christ , I am the resurrection and the life, says the Lord;whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will never die. In the first reading God speaks through Prophet Ezekiel: I have promised, and I will do it, says the LORD.

Jesus was a Complete Man like us on this Earth but without Sin and possessed a cursed body like us    , when Jesus was resurrected in body, mind and spirit, Jesus resurrected with a Human  Body without curse of Sin. In the beginning Adam and Eve was created in this Human body without curse of Sin but they lost the glory of God when they disobeyed God’s Commandments and landed in a Body of Sin and sickness.

When Jesus was risen , he said Mary Magdalene not to embrace him because he was changed   from a Human Cursed Body in to Human body without  Sin and Curse. Jesus was accepted back in to the Holy trinity on the day of Ascension in to Heaven and the time he ascended in to Heaven , he was glorified with the glorified Human Body and the Holy spirit passed through him to everyone who connected to him on the earth. This is the reason on the day of Pentecost, Holy spirit descended upon only on the Disciples and apostles of Jesus.   Whoever connects or believes in Christ , connects to the body of Christ and by default the Holy spirit descend upon him, this is one activity. All people on this Earth who believe in him becomes the Body of  Christ on this Earth and each other through his representation in human glorified body in heaven.

Jesus is not in a Spirit form in Heaven but seated at the right hand of the Father  in a Glorified Human body to represent the humans in Heaven and pass on the Spirit of God in to the World. This is the secret Salvation Plan planned by Father, Son and the Holy spirit. On the last day of Judgement , Jesus will come in his Human glorified body and not in his original Spirit form.  The power of salvation and Holy spirit so great , even heaven and Earth trembles and we possess this power in our heart and our lives. We must be aware of our Salvation and power of the Holy spirit and invoke it’s power in healing, deliverance, Nature miracles, Deliverance, Intercession , Evangelisation and transformation of hearts.

Let us experience this power in our life . Jesus Weeps with the death of many people along with their families  , for no fault of theirs but  because of the curse, sickness , pain passed on by their first parents. This is the world of the dead but we have a good news , Jesus Christ weeps with us and invites us to put our trust in him and the power of Holy Trinity , the love of God pass in to us and all sin , sickness, curse will vanish in a fraction of time and we will be connected to the Body of Christ who is seated at the right hand of the Father interceding for the Whole World 24×7 365 days.

Holy Father Calls on World to Pray Together Lords Prayer- Our Father on March 25

Holy Father Calls on World to Pray Together on March 25

Extraordinary Urbi et Orbi Blessing in Response to Coronavirus

Pope Francis has called for all Christians throughout the world to join in praying the Our Father on Wednesday, March 25, 2020, at noon.

He made the appeal after praying the noonday Angelus on March 22, broadcast from Apostolic Library in the Vatican.

The Pope also announced that on the following Friday, March 27, he will preside over a moment of prayer on the sagrato of St Peter’s Basilica, the platform at the top of the steps immediately in front of the façade of the Church, reported Vatican News.

“I invite everyone to participate spiritually through the means of communication”, he said.

Coronavirus Plenary Indulgence

Indulgences can be interpreted in our modern language to good works or works of Charity done in his grace or through the inspiration of the Holy spirit. These Indulgences cancel the consequences of our sins.
Human has been created through free will so that he may take decisions in his own freedom. God gives this freedom to his children in love and trust. When the Human betrays God’s trust and goes against God’s will , he betrays himself and the whole  Creation and falls in to trouble due to his wrong decisions in life. These wrong decisions create a gap or crack in the relationship between man and God , due to the crack or gap in our relationship with God , God’s mercy does not flow in to our Soul .
When we reconcile for our Wrong Decisions and acknowledge our mistake , the grace starts flowing in to our heart but the gap or Crack created due to our wrong decision remains and must be filled through reverse decisions like the good works and for these good works , Church calls indulgences. For example if we steal some money from our employer which is a Sin and later we acknowledge our mistake and reconcile with God , God forgives through his mercy and love and the grace starts flowing  back in to us but the guilt and shame and wound caused to our self and our Neighbor remains, to fill this gap we must return the stolen money to the employer with a sorry letter and make peace with him. When we do this act our soul rests in peace otherwise it never be in peace. At this stage if we die , we go to a place called Purgatory , where we are purified by the grace of God.( I think, I am not sure, these souls have been given a good work to intercede for the Whole world and conversion of sinners. )
 These indulgences act as remission of our punishment or consequences of our Sins. We can create Credit Balance of these indulgences on these Earth and our purification happens on this Earth itself, due to our sacrificial and Spiritual life. We can use these Indulgences to pray for the Souls in the Purgatory  or Conversion of Souls or to obtain the favor from God for ourselves and others. It is  a Heavenly  treasure on this earth. There are many people gain many indulgences through their good works , it can be a job done not for financial gain but for care for the Humanity. A prayer made for the healing or conversion of soul. An act of Righteousness or standing for truth and justice or may be martyrdom for the love of God. These paths takes a human being directly to Heaven because the gaps are filled upon this Earth and the soul has reconciled with God with full of grace and presence of God. When we die in the full presence of God in our life , we go direct to Heaven because our sins are already purged out on this Earth through our good works.
Coronavirus plenary indulgence

1st Mystery of Healing: Jesus Heals the Paralyzed Man.      Luke 5:17-24
One day Jesus was teaching the Pharisees and teachers of the law were sitting there. They had come from every village of Galilee and from Judea and Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was with Jesus to heal the sick. Some men came carrying a paralyzed man on a mat and tried to take him into the house to lay him before Jesus. When they could not find a way to do this because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and lowered him on his mat through the tiles into the middle of the crowd, right in front of Jesus. When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.” The Pharisees and the teachers of the law began thinking to themselves, “Who is this fellow who speaks blasphemy? Who can forgive sins but God alone?” Jesus knew what they were thinking and asked, “Why are you thinking these things in your hearts? Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” So he said to the paralyzed man, “I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.” Immediately he stood up in front of them, took what he had been lying on and went home praising God. Everyone was amazed and gave praise to God. They were filled with awe and said, “We have seen remarkable things today.” ~ Luke 5:17-24

2nd Mystery of Healing: Jesus heals Crippled Woman with infirmity.

  • “And a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.” Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God.” ~ Luke 13:11-1
  • 3rd Mystery of Healing: Jesus Heals a man from abnormal swelling of his body.
  • One Sabbath, when Jesus went to eat in the house of a prominent Pharisee, he was being carefully watched. There in front of him was a man suffering from abnormal swelling of his body. Jesus asked the Pharisees and experts in the law, “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath or not?” But they remained silent. So taking hold of the man, he healed him and sent him on his way. Then he asked them, “If one of you has a child or an ox that falls into a well on the Sabbath day, will you not immediately pull it out?” And they had nothing to say.” ~ Luke 14:1-6
  • 4th Mystery of Healing: Jesus heals ten men with Leprosy  Luke 12:17-19

As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!” When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed. One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan. Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.” ~ Luke 12:17-19

5th Mystery of Healing : Jesus raises the dead Daughter of JairusLuke 8:49-56
While Jesus was still speaking, someone came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” he said. “Don’t bother the teacher anymore.” Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.” When he arrived at the house of Jairus, he did not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John and James, and the child’s father and mother. Meanwhile, all the people were wailing and mourning for her. “Stop wailing,” Jesus said. “She is not dead but asleep.” They laughed at him, knowing that she was dead. But he took her by the hand and said, “My child, get up!” Her spirit returned, and at once she stood up. Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat. Her parents were astonished, but he ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened.” ~ Luke 8:49-56

  3. Pray Psalm 51 for forgiveness and mercy of God for the people of this Country.

    Have mercy on me, O God,
        according to your unfailing love;
    according to your great compassion
        blot out my transgressions.
    Wash away all my iniquity
        and cleanse me from my sin.

    For I know my transgressions,
        and my sin is always before me.
    Against you, you only, have I sinned
        and done what is evil in your sight;
    so you are right in your verdict
        and justified when you judge.
    Surely I was sinful at birth,
        sinful from the time my mother conceived me.
    Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb;
        you taught me wisdom in that secret place.

    Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
        wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
    Let me hear joy and gladness;
        let the bones you have crushed rejoice.
    Hide your face from my sins
        and blot out all my iniquity.

    10 Create in me a pure heart, O God,
        and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
    11 Do not cast me from your presence
        or take your Holy Spirit from me.
    12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation
        and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

    13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways,
        so that sinners will turn back to you.
    14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God,
        you who are God my Savior,
        and my tongue will sing of your righteousness.
    15 Open my lips, Lord,
        and my mouth will declare your praise.
    16 You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it;
        you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.
    17 My sacrifice, O God, is[b] a broken spirit;
        a broken and contrite heart
        you, God, will not despise.

    18 May it please you to prosper Zion,
        to build up the walls of Jerusalem.
    19 Then you will delight in the sacrifices of the righteous,
        in burnt offerings offered whole;
        then bulls will be offered on your altar.

  4. Pray for the Salvation , people may experience the love of God. Ps.91: 14-16 14 “Because he[a] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
        I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
    15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
        I will be with him in trouble,
        I will deliver him and honor him.
    16 With long life I will satisfy him
        and show him my salvation.”
  5. Let us pray  through the Word of God– Eph 6:13- 17                                         13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
  6.  Pray in Spirit: Pray in tongues of intercession but have a compassionate heart and not revenge or angry heart. Eph : 6 :18                                                                         18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
  7. Bind the Spirit of Corona virus in the name of Jesus and make a spontaneous prayer of  healing and Deliverance. Mathew 10:8                                                                          Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy,[a] drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give

8.  Let us Believe that God has heard our Prayer  and thank him for his love and                  mercy                                                                                                                                                        Mark 11:24  Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you                have received it, and it will be yours.

If we recite at every hour , it is very effective , it is like knocking at the door of  Heaven for the mercy to pour upon this Earth . Mathew 7:7 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.

If you can not do hourly , you can do it day wise but remember do not make this prayer without having your personal prayer. First get connected to God’s Spirit and pray through his spirit , otherwise we will be praying with our mind which is not according to the will of God.

People who can not go through the above processes , for simple intercession say following prayer : Lord Jesus Christ Son of God , have mercy upon the people of this Country. Also you can call upon the name of JESUS repeatedly and meaningfully in reverence and devotion. The Name of Jesus is itself  is a Prayer of Intercession. The meaning is one who saves…

Every Day click on the link above and see how much difference you can make on the World through our Spiritual Intercession. God bless you and have a great time of Intercession and Prayer.

( P.N.Please forward this to many Intercessors so that Lord may hasten his Salvation and save his People in haste).

There are No Co incidents in Spiritual Life.

Fourth Sunday of Lent
March 22, 2020

Today’s Readings:1 Samuel 16:1b, 6-7, 10-13a
Psalm 23:1-6
Ephesians 5:8-14
John 9:1-41
USCCB Podcast of the Readings:


“Neither he nor his parents sinned;
it is so that the works of God might be made visible through him.”

As we reflect Jesus Words in today’s Readings in the fourth Week of Lent , the Words of Jesus open our eyes of darkness. The main focus of these readings to identify the true light of the World Jesus Christ.  Lord reveals himself to us in various ways  in our life, he reveals himself through Sacrificial  sickness.  God does not bring Calamity or sickness in our life but if there are Calamities, Sicknesses , Sufferings which come suddenly from nowhere and we do not have any answer or remedy for these disasters , we must receive them as part of our calling or vocation. Sometimes they are difficult to understand but these very sufferings reveal the plan of God in our life .

I want to focus on the three stages of faith the man born blind professes in his journey of faith with Jesus. All of us have our own testimony , how Jesus worked in our life. Also we have our own faith journey with Jesus like the healed Blind man. As we reflect let us see ourselves who Jesus to us today in our life and which stage we are in our life.

  1. The Man called Jesus : After his healing, the Blind man testifies to his neighbors that a man called Jesus healed him. He calls Jesus a man because he did not have deeper relationship with him.  Is Jesus a good man to us who healed us and removed us away from our darkness and brought us in to light and truth.
  2. He is a prophet : When Pharisees question him, what he has to say about than man Jesus who healed him, he says Jesus is a Prophet. These incidents did not happen in one day but series of time and the man realizes Jesus as a Prophet in the second stage of his faith journey. Who is Jesus to us today to us? , is he a miracle making Prophet who gives messages and heals our diseases , do we run from one Prophet to the other to seek him.
  3. I do believe, Lord : When the man is thrown out of the synagogue for testifying Jesus, Jesus approaches him and reveals his identity of Messiah, and the healed blind man calls him Lord  and worships him. When the healed blind man testifies Jesus to the Pharisees and others , he was persecuted and Jesus reveals him.   Have we testified Jesus in difficult situations of our life and faced rejection and disappointment. Has Jesus encountered us in that situation and revealed his Lordship to us ,have we made him our Lord and Master  of our life.

The situations come in our life are the opportunities to recognize Jesus as he is , we may seek him as a good man or miraculous Prophet or Lord and Master of our life. The key is have we recognize him as he is, the Lord and Master of our life or we are still stuck in the early stages of our faith journey.   In the faith journey , there are no co incidents or disasters but every activity is related to our Spiritual journey with our Master. If we wait upon the Lord in prayer and patience, he will reveal us the purpose of that incident which always  elevates us to God’s Love and Mercy.

The Calamity   awakes us to come out of our comfort zone and walk with him one to one , not in riddles or fancies but with a committed love of sacrifice and giving. The period of Lent challenges us through this Word of God to build a one one relationship with Jesus through our Personal Prayer , family prayer and our Lord himself will minister us with his body and blood just like the two disciples on the way of Emmaus  encountered Jesus personally and ate his body and blood.




Relationship with Jesus make us worshipers of Spirit and Truth.

Believe me, woman, the hour is coming
when you will worship the Father
neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.
But the hour is coming, and is now here,
when true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and truth;
and indeed the Father seeks such people to worship him.
God is Spirit, and those who worship him
must worship in Spirit and truth.”

Jesus has predicted two thousand years ago that a time would come where people worship the Father neither in mountain nor in Jerusalem. If we look at the situation today people are scared  to gather publicly as a Community to Worship the Lord. To Worship our Father , do we really require a worship place? A person who has a relationship with the Father can worship him from anywhere and everywhere and do not require a specific place to Worship but the places of Worship like Church Buildings bring in a holy atmosphere and reverence to God . Jesus worshiped the Lord in all places, we can see in the Gospel , he drew early in the morning to a quiet place and prayed, he prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane , he prayed in the Temple of Jerusalem so on. The most important thing in Worship is to worship in Spirit and truth.

What is Worshiping in Spirit and truth ? Lord Jesus Christ himself is the Spirit and truth, he is the Temple of God , Jesus said break  this  Temple of Stones and  I will build it in three days. Jesus was talking about his death and resurrection.  When we understand the Salvation and descending of the Holy spirit upon those who seek the Lord in Spirit and truth , we become the Body of Christ the Church. Churches are signs of God’s dwelling upon this earth , where the members of the Body of Christ come together and celebrate the liturgy in Praise , Worship, thanksgiving and eat the Body and blood of Christ. These signs can disappear one day when we encounter our Lord face to face in our personal prayers and share his body and blood  in faith in the encounter with the Lord just like two disciples of Jesus encountered Jesus and celebrated the Eucharist with him on the way to Emmaus.  Worshiping the Lord in Spirit and truth means to experience Jesus personally in our life and have a fellowship with him in truth in discipleship.

If we visit the mission stations , the masses and confessions are celebrated in the catechists houses or in the open field . I attended a confession in a cowshed where all cows were surrounded due to the privacy of the Sacrament. That confession was one of my best of the confessions ever.  God looks at our hearts and nothing else , if we pray and worship him by pouring out our heart and follow him in truth then we are the true followers of Christ . Bearing a Christian name or by receiving a ritualistic infant Baptism, a person does not become true follower of Christ but only by trusting in his mercy and love. The time spent in prayer and reflection of God’s Word takes us closer to the Lord to love the Lord through faith and hope of  Salvation. This is the center of every Christians life , rest of the things like ministry and service is the replica of God’s love which we have experienced in our Spiritual life. If we have less experience , our ministry will reflect a weaker image of Christ but if we experience the Lord in fullness , our ministry will yield a harvest of Hundred  Percent , it can be our family , church or congregation.

We must have our own fixed meeting place with our God every day  in our place. A fixed time and fixed place can make our meeting place more exciting because when we fix a time and place , the Lord waits for us at that particular time and place. As we enter the place, God’s Glory surrounds us immediately and the Spirit of God overshadows us. A time will come during this hour of prayer , one will not able to stand or sit before the Lord but knocks down to the ground due to our weak nature before God’s Spirit. We have to reach this stage of prayer where we are lost in his Spirit. This is called the true Worship of Love where Jesus was lost with the Fathers spirit in Prayer.



Repent or Perish- Luke 13-1-8

13 Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. Jesus answered, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”

Then he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree growing in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it but did not find any. So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, ‘For three years now I’ve been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven’t found any. Cut it down! Why should it use up the soil?’

“‘Sir,’ the man replied, ‘leave it alone for one more year, and I’ll dig around it and fertilize it. If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down.’

The  Calamities , epidemics, recessions which are beyond the wisdom of man because we do not have the answers or control or remedies for these disasters. When we do not have the answers in Worldly Dictionary , we must turn our attention to the moral dictionary. Bible gives us the account of moral values  from the creation of the Universe till the current modern World.

If we refer to the Bible , the Calamities are addressed in many occasions in Old Testament and New Testament.

  1. Sodom & Gomorrah:  Sodom & Gomorrah was wiped out of the Book of life due to the complete absence of moral values in human heart. If a human heart completely loses it’s substance of God’s love , then that body is no better than any other animal on this Earth. Abraham prays to the Lord to have mercy , several times but God could not see one righteous person in this land. People with  complete absence of God’s love is very dangerous for the people of  God and the Creation itself. These people are with evil ideologies can destroy the universe , so the Universe itself destroys these people through Natural Law.
  2.  Prophet Jonah at Nineveh :  The people of Nineveh  lived in complete absence of God and God inspires Prophet Jonah to proclaim a warning : Forty days and Nineveh will be destroyed ,  People repent and do penance and God does not destroy Nineveh.
  3. Jesus On Calamity:   Jewish people had a tradition which believed the calamities as a punishment . Jesus in Luke 13 says , unless and until if anyone of this age does not repent will perish just like the people of Galilee who were killed by Pilate and the eighteen people who died by falling of tower of Siloam.

From the beginning of the Creation God is giving us only one message to repent for our trespasses and follow the the Word of God. The whole universe created in the wisdom of God which we call Natural Law. If we follow this Law , morally we are right with God , but if we do not follow the Law , the Nature itself comes against us. For Example about health , we are suppose to eat good edible things  in proportion as food for our body but if we try to consume something else in a inappropriate manner for our passion and satisfaction , our body does not accept the substance and stops functioning in that area. We call this as disease.  We go against the Nature of our Body and fall in to sickness.

Any Calamity need not panic us in fear  but we must fear our Salvation in this panic.God gives us various opportunities to become righteous person on this Earth by following the Gospel of truth and love but if we deny his mercy again and again , we short fall of his grace in our life. Our hearts get hardened to the mercy of God and finally we  refuse the love of God and choose hatred , greed and lust of the World.

Calamities are not created or led by God but when a mass of People go against the Natural Law , the nature bounces back with calamities. These calamities can make or break a person , if a person comes to his senses and repents for his Wrongs of life and believe in the Gospel he will be saved but someone neglects the commandments of love and go on sinning against himself, his family, his neighbors and the Whole world , then he is surely is going perish. God always there with open arms but if he or she ridicule and make fun of our Lord without repentance , the evil takes control of them and destroys that person.
