A Message with Love

My dear parishioners, devotees of St. Jude and all pilgrims of the shrine, my heartfelt greetings to you all ; through the intersession of St. Jude I ask the blessings of the Almighty on all of us.

“Jesus is the life giving spring, let anyone who is thirsty come and drink” (John 7:37). This life giving spring in this parish is quenching the thirst of her devotees from the past 58years, because of this life giving spring there are many miracles that have taken place. 1 peter 2:7 says “Jesus is of great value for those who believe; but for those who do not believe: the stone which the builders rejected as worthless turned out to be the most important of all.” There are many pilgrims coming to this shrine in faith that they may witness Jesus Christ and ask our patron St. Jude’s intersession on everyone according to faith in prayer from this life giving spring. There are many who have testified that it is a privilege to receive new life from this life giving spring called Jesus Christ.

Genesis 28:15 says: “Remember, I will be with you and protect you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done all that I have promised you.” I will be completing 10 years of my priesthood in April 2018. Before these 10 years Jesus took care of me, helped me and filled me up with so many blessing. I give all thanks, glory and honor to our Almighty God. I pray that the Lord may put His blessing upon us. St. Jude is a very great intessesor and this shrine is a very holy place and many miracles have taken place in the shrine the past. This shrine is known for its holiness and the shrine also speaks on the miracles performed by the grace of the Almighty.

From the year 1960 till date many have received many graces from this life giving water; there were a total of 11 parish priests who have helped shape this shrine in all ways possible. The priests have helped in many ways possible in developing the parish as well as supporting the parishioners in all possible ways. Over the past years there were a total of 7 assistant priests who have always been striving hard to work fruitfully with the parish priests for the benefit of the shrine and parish. I remain ever grateful to God as well as the priests who have rendered their fruitful service to this shrine and parish all thanks, praise and glory be to the Almighty God.

“God gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak” (Isaiah 40:29). Weak as I am, God gave me a chance to come and render my service to this church and shrine. I am indeed very happy to be the parish priest of such a holy place dedicated to St. Jude who is a great intessesor. I am the 12th parish priest of this parish and Rev. Fr. Rahul Dexter D'Souza is the 8th assistant parish priest of this parish. I will render my service to this parish and shrine to the fullest of my capacity. “Those who seek the lord lack no good thing” (Psalm 34:10). May the Lord bless me and give me the strength to carry out the mission He has entrusted to me. May the St. Jude intercede for me to be ever faithful to the Almighty. I also pray for all the devotees and the parishioners so that they may also witness the presence of the God.
