“I ask you to pray to the Lord, that He will bless me”. Pope Francis.


Why Pope selected the name “Francis”? Search “The Prayer of St.Francis of Assisi”. Pope loves it.


                           Happy  Easter!


In this period of Easter, our Mother Church reminds us of The Fruits of Resurrection of our Lord from the various apparitions given to His disciples: 1. Peace and Joy(Mt.28, 20) 2. New Life: 3. A life of deliverance: (Jn.16, 33). 4. Apostolic Mission: (Jn 20, 17-18). 5. Increase of Faith: (Jn.20,24029). 6. Christ experience: (Lk.24, 30-32). All these apparitions of our Lord mentioned in the Bible, are with particular purposes to deepen our Faith and to proclaim the Risen Lord in our day to day life with St.Thomas “ My Lord and My God”.
