Apologies for having to reach out to you like this, I made a trip early this
week to London, UK and had my bag stolen from me with my passport and credit
cards in it. The embassy is willing to help by letting me fly without my
passport, I just have to pay for a ticket and settle Hotel bills. Unfortunately
for me, I can’t have access to funds without my credit card, I’ve made contact
with my bank but they need more time to come up with a new one. I was thinking
of asking you to lend me some quick funds that I can give back as soon as I get
in. I really need to be on the next available flight.

I can forward you details on how you can get the funds to me. You can reach me
via email or May field hotel’s desk phone, the numbers are, +447024029894
I await your response…

About The Voice Of Bombay's Catholic Laity

Bombay Laity Ezekiel’s Chapter 3 Task as Watchman 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 18 When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for[b] their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 19 But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.

    Desculpe -me pela maneira como cheguei ate voce mas a necessidade e a fe me respaldam por isso. Peco urgentemente que me envie uma maneira de entrar em contato com o Padre Rufus Pereira, obviamente que nao seria seu e-mail, mas sehouvesse um outro endereco, como de sua arquidiocese em bombaim.

    It istrongly felt that the Church should take up issues regarding the problems being faced by the Christian Community.It is very sad to see that all religious heads are taking up tproblems faced by their community and are making tremendoius progress but the Catholic Church is only sitting on the fence and waching the community shrinking and sinking we do not ven have an MP or and MLA to take up issues regarding the problem faced by many catholic be oit BMC ,Legal or even getting benifit the Church should take step in before it is to late as it has been observed that a lot of our Christians are joining the protestent groups like Born again etcetc.
    It is very sad to see priest not wearing their SUTAN in the olden days when there was not much means of transport we always saw our priest in SUTAN today’ young priest telling the other priest that you look handsome in the SUTAN it sad that even when you go to the parish to meet piest in connection with Burials and request to visit the Sick and bedridden or a funerial they will tell you that you must come during office timings or please call or visit during the specified timing and then they will saw that they a busy with other matters and behave like Multinational Officers.I feel todays Priest specially the young who give great sermons should first Practise what they Preach and do atleat 6 years in the Missions. preach.on giving long sermons
