women left the empty tomb of our
Lord with fear and joy. (Mt. 28:8)
Why did they have fear in their
minds? Because their Master, Jesus
was crucified and buried. Now, what
would happen to the disciples ?
If the Master is killed, would the
disciples be spared? The apostles
and disciples were also fearful
because of the sad things happening
in the life of their Master. So
we see, there was enough reason
to have fear in their lives. But
they left the empty tomb also with
joy in their hearts because their
Master is alive. That gave them
We may not have fear of enemies
now, because we may be free from
the fear of enemies. But we have
so many other types of fear in our
lives. When I was here in Logos
in 2001, one family came here with
a lot of fear in their minds. They
had a child 8 months old, born blind.
No eyesight. Thinking of the future
of that boy, the mother was fearful.
And also, the family members as
well. I said to them, “Fear
not. Our Lord is alive”. What
He did 2000 years ago for His people,
He will continue to do even today
during the celebration of His life,
the Eucharistic Celebration. “Fear
not, our Lord is alive!”.
So they participated in the Eucharistic
Celebration, the celebration of
the death and resurrection of our
Lord Jesus Christ, with signs and
symbols, hymns and praise. They
didn't notice anything special in
the eyes of the child. That night
they took a train to Chennai to
have better treatment there. By
11.30 a.m. on the following day,
they reached Chennai and went to
the hospital. There, they noticed
that the child was responding to
the actions of the Doctor. He was
responding properly. Their fear
was taken away! Joy filled their
hearts !. Yes, The Lord is alive
to continue what He started 2000
years ago and He continues it for
our benefit even today and He will
continue to do it tomorrow and forever.
Praise the Lord, Alleluia !
HEALING IN BERLIN
Four weeks ago, I was in Berlin
Vincentian Ashram. There we have
started a Divine Mercy Centre for
the people in the city of Berlin.
When I celebrated the Eucharist,
I saw a man with crutches in both
hands, helped by his wife and sitting
on the wheel chair. He came for
the participation of the Eucharistic
Celebration. Jesus is the same in
Logos, in Berlin, everywhere in
the world and in Palestine. He is
alive. He does what He did years
ago. So we celebrated the Holy Mass
for all, especially for the fulfillment
of 9 intentions. At the end of the
Holy Mass we had a short prayer
for the sick people and I asked
for their testimonies. I asked this
man, especially, because I had perceived
in my spirit that he was healed.
I asked him to come forward He was
sitting there, not responding, as
if he was not healed. His wife provoked
him and told him “give me
the crutches and go”. He didn't
respond. She was angry with him
and told him “all these years
I have suffered, I carried you,
I helped you. Now you are healed.
Father asked you to come. Why are
you sitting here. Go and give your
testimony.” In response, the
man got angry and muttered “my
wife is angry with me in a holy
place”. In a fit of rage,
he gave the crutches to his wife
and he stood up to walk. And walked
all the way to the stage ! What
a wonderful testimony. One person
took a video of it for the benefit
of others who did not come. That
day, that man went home fully healed.
Praise the Lord! He was healed of
his physical disability of over
HE HAS RISEN
Jesus is alive. His tomb is empty.
He is with us now. I have visited
his empty tomb eight times in Jerusalem.
It is written there “He is
not here. He has risen”. That
is true. So wherever we go, we see
Him. We experience Him. Whenever
we celebrate His life through the
Eucharistic Celebration, He does
the same what He did 2000 years
ago. He is fully alive and He is
with us. So He says to us “Fear
not because of your disease, fear
not because of your troubles”.
About 5 years ago, when I was here
in Bangalore in Logos, a family-father,
mother and their child came here.
The child was crying very loudly
shouting “kill me, kill me,
don't allow me to live. It is over.”
He was suffering from a horrible
disease. There were blisters and
boils all over the skin and there
was bleeding also inside the skin.
And small drops of blood were coming
out. His mother was wiping away
the blood from his body. It was
so painful that the boy kept crying
“kill me, it is better to
kill me. I don't want to live.”
The family was from Hutchins Road,
in Bangalore. I told them, “you
must believe that Jesus is alive
for you and for your son”.
They agreed. I assured them that
Jesus would heal their child if
they followed the instructions.
Accordingly, they visited the Blessed
Sacrament, sat down there and prayed
the Divine Mercy Chaplet, went home
and continued the prayers. Last
year I came here. They participated
in the Divine Mercy Novena and Feast.
They came with a joyful heart. They
said, “years ago we came with
fear and sorrow, now we have come
here with joy and peace to give
our testimony. Our son is alive.
He is studying in Dubai where we
now live. He has no sickness, no
disease. He is healed”.
JOY IN HIM
Do you have fear in your lives?
Do you have sorrows in your life?
Do you have difficulties? Jesus
says “Fear not, I am alive
for you. If I am alive, why do you
have fear?”. Two thousand
years ago, Jesus said to his disciples,
“I am alive. Peace be with
you. Fear not”. Today, too,
He is alive. Romans: 10:9 says that
if you confess with your mouth,
Jesus is Lord and believe in your
heart that God raised Him from the
dead, you will be saved - You will
be saved, you will be healed. You
will be blessed. Your sins will
be forgiven. He is alive. That gives
us a lot of joy and consolation.
Some people may believe that Jesus
is no more. He is not alive. So
they cry very loudly.
MIRACLES, IF YOU BELIEVE
In St. John's Gospel, chapter 11
Lazarus had been dead for four days.
His body was putrid, sending out
a foul smell. He was buried in a
tomb. Both his sisters were crying
as if there were no remedy for this.
They said to Jesus, “Jesus
if you had been here, our brother
would not have died. Now it is over.
You can do nothing now”.
Jesus said “don't say that
there is no remedy”. His sisters
thought that, four days after Lazarus'
death, there was no hope. If Jesus
had been here when he was sick,
then there would have been some
hope. If Jesus had been there just
after the death, he could have done
something. But after 4 days there
was no hope. They were crying as
if there were no remedy. Jesus said,
“I have already told you,
if you believe, you will see miracles
and power”. God is powerful,
we will experience that power by
faith. If you have faith you will
experience the power. The power
in your weakness, the power in your
weak body, the power in your difficulties.
POWER TO LIVE
Jesus said, “Lazarus come
out” Powerful words. He came
out. He was alive. He walked with
Christ. He lived with the family
for long. Earlier, there were fears,
sorrows, disappointments. Now, there
was joy! Sometimes people cry as
if Jesus is no more. He is not there.
But Jesus is alive and so He says
“fear not”. Your problems
and difficulties will disappear,
your sickness will be healed. If
not I will bring you joy in your
suffering. Fear not, I am alive
Do you believe that Jesus is alive
for you and me ? Do you believe
that Jesus can do a miracle for
you now? Do you believe that all
will be healed today ? Do you believe
that people will be healed in the
distance, those who are not here
? Alleluia !
Thank you Jesus ! Praise you Jesus
! Trust in the Lord always. He will
do only good things for you.
Even though we feel negative and
think that there are no blessings
for us, He is always blessing us.
He is always healing. Always transforming.
Believe and trust in Him You will
receive something special when you
One day I saw a paralysed woman
in the front row when I was in Chembur
Ashram. Her name was Dora. She was
a teacher and she came for the Holy
Mass. Nothing happened during the
Eucharistic Celebration. After the
Mass, we prayed for the sick. She
went home as she came for the Holy
Mass. Without any change. She was
not sure that she was healed.
At the right time, the Lord heals
and touches. During the night, she
had a wonderful dream and Jesus
appeared with a smiling face. She
saw the joyful, powerful presence
of the Lord being filled in the
room. It was only a dream and Jesus
said “I healed you when you
attended the Eucharistic Celebration”.
But the manifestation of the healing
was not there. Now I want to tell
you that you are fully healed. When
the priest celebrated the Holy Mass
I was there. I was celebrating the
Mass. I want to tell you this truth,
now.” She thought it was only
a dream. But the following day when
she got up she experienced that
her body was strengthened. She was
healed. The next day I saw her in
the front row of the church. She
was blessed, healed and was now
giving her testimony after the Holy
Mass. Jesus is alive!. Praise the
Lord!. God blesses and heals you
at any time. In your sleep, he will
bless you. When you go to Him, you
will be healed. When you speak to
others about your blessing, you
will receive more blessings. When
you pray for other people you will
be healed. Because Jesus is so generous
in His healing. He is so generous
and He gives His children whatever
Praise the Lord. Thank you Jesus.
Praise you Jesus !
