Disclose the names of the Legal Advisors and Finance Committe members of the Bombay Archdiocese

Dear Your Eminence Oswald Cardinal Gracias &  Your Lordship Bishop Agnelo Gracias,

Dear Your Lordship Bishop Savio & Bishop John,

Praise be to Jesus Christ Now & Evermore !!
(requesting Archbishop House to pls forward this email to H.L.Bishops Savio & John , as i do not have the email addresses)
                   Subj : Humble Request to You to Kindly Urgently Disclose by Email & also Publish in the Examiner the names of the Legal Advisors & Finance Committee Members of each Parish & in the  Archdiocese offices of the same
Wishing You A Happy Feast on the occassion of the feast of “Our Lady of Lourdes”. May the apparition of Our Blessed Mother centuries back guide the both of You today & always. On this her feast day, I pray that just as Our Blessed Mother appeared to the children with her message for the Salvation of her Church, May she guide & protect your steps in initiating strict action against the mischief makers selling her Church / Property / Artefacts, and thus save the Archdiocese of Mumbai from the shame that her Church is facing due to property scandals.
My Eminence & My Lordships, I write this humble email with faith in your abilities to do the Right in the eyes of God. Recent articles have exposed alleged sales of not only Church properties but apparently also of Churches. The Church in Mumbai is getting a bad name & since majority of the Churches have the priest as the sole Trustee, the otherwise Good Name of the Clergy is getting tarnished.
My Eminence & My Lordships, in 10 days time (22 feb) the Church celebrates “The Chair of Peter” – YOU are the occupants of this chair in Mumbai. Will you’ll not tend to Our Lords sheep ? Will you’ll not prevent Our Lord’s Church from being turned into a market place, and save his possessions from being sold to the highest bidder ? Will you’ll not ensure that Our Lords sheep are fed, clothed, healed from illnesses (spiritual & physical).
Our Lord drove away the moneymongers from the Holy Temple, the Laity awaits the Lords guidance of your Hands in driving away those who are selling our Churches, our church properties, rendering homeless our aged & directing our poor & needy to beg at the doors of Siddhivinayak, Mosques & other places for their Medical needs.
My Eminence & My Lordship (bsp agnelo), I have personally experienced at times your “Stand for the Truth” when I have approached you’ll with problems in my parish. You have take the preliminary actions in various matters brought to you. BUT the time has now come for sterner action
His Holiness Pope Francis has shown the way by defrocking so many, you’ll the Church Hierarchy in Mumbai …. your turn has come . The  laity is with YOU !!
Your Eminence & Your Lordships, a humble Request to you –  
 a.Names (list) of Finance Committee Members, Property Committee
     Members & Legal Advisory Team in the Mumbai Archdiocese
  b.Names (list) of Parish Priest, Finance Committee Members  & Legal
     Advisory Team to begin with in each of the foll parishes – Thane, Mahim,      Vakola, Kalina, Santacruz(W), Dadar (E & W) (those in position at the         time of sale of Church Properties & Church Artefacts)
  a.Names (list) of Finance Committee Members, Property Committee
     Members & Legal Advisory Team in the Mumbai Archdiocese
  b.Names (list) of Parish Priest, Finance Committee Members  & Legal
     Advisory Team of all parishes in the Archdiocese
My Eminence & My Lordships surely as the Laity & as the beneficiaries of Christ Church, the Laity is entitled to this information. These list are not secrets, so surely you’ll will have no need to hide them. The properties / money/ etc are donated by the laity & SO the Laity has the right to know who is handling the same for them,.Surely, Just as the Govt discloses the names of its portfolio Ministers, the Archdiocese discloses appointments of Parish Priest, so also the Archdiocese has to disclose to its laity the names of its Committee Members (who handle the portfolios of the Archdiocese).
We, the Laity are aware that the Clergy ( bishops incl), most of them are NOT equipped with Legal or Finance Knowledge ( bishops incl) and act / sign documents at the advise of the Legal & Finance Teams. Hence it is IMPERATIVE to know THE IDENTITIES of those who allegedly Wrongly Advice in Church matters
As you are aware, as an Ex-Trustee, I was falsely removed from the post BECAUSE, I REFUSED to : sign on blank vakalatnamas / give away my General Power of Attorney / sign property sales to be later backdated, etc.(papers on the Archdiocese table when I complained of difficulties faced as a Trustee, before they got me out with false accusations). Your Eminence & My Lordship investigated & by way of an Official Statement – CLEARED  My Name (the matter is still on your table as FULL Justice is awaited. My False removal was at the advice of such so-called Advisors / Persons with vested Interest
Similarly, We, the Laity will ensure Justice to those Clergy who perhaps may have innocently acted on the advice received by them. For this, We require the list as requested (4 paras) above to question them too & give them a chance to explain the transactions.
AOCC, as you are aware has always stood for the CHURCH, for the TRUTH, for the UPLIFTMENT OF THE POOR & for the CAUSES OF THE CLERGY. These are the Principles taught to us by the Church itself & hence WE are sure you will show us the way by taking the LEAD STEPS FORWARD.
Together, We, have stood against those demolishing our crosses / attacking & threatening our schools / insulting our Pope, Church & clergy…. We, firmly Believe that Together, with Christ & Our Blessed Mother Guiding our Path, WE (Clergy & Laity) shall SAVE OUR CHURCH, ITS PROPERTIES  & ITS ARTEFACTS
My Eminence , Your itinerary shows you are scheduled to leave for Rome later this week. We have faith that before you leave on your trip, God will guide you to share by return email the details asked for in this email.
Awaiting your email with details
Yours in Christ

It is easier for a camel to enter the eye of a needle that for the Mumbai Archdiiocese to disclose these names.

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.

  1. Time up AB house administration. Will you make the information known. We have been tolerating this absurd nonsense for just too long.Now the truth and the whole truth must be exposed. The people have been awakened and the cry of the people for justice,transparency in the finance and assets of the catholic church will now begin.
    Its best the administration come out in the open.

  2. Peter Prabhu says:

    Judith, AB house will never revert to your letter, it is their specialty, why property, priests who do goondagiri, mafia, Yoga mixed with Religion are all protected by the AB and their predecessors. They are just rotting the Archdiocese of Mumbai.

  3. Leslie Miranda says:

    Judith what is also important is the funds of the Catholic Trusts? They are not being disclosed to the Laity. There should be a regular Audit.

    • Leslie, have already sort the assistance from the relevant dept of the Govt of Maharashtra and Govt of India. Need to wait for a while, the wheels of accountability have already been set in motion, there is no looking back. the question you have raises is very important, where is the money?
      Keep praying and we will achieve.
      God Bless

  4. Jesus Christ drove out the money changers from the temple and said, (Matthew 21: 12-13), “My house shall be called a house of prayer’; but you are making it a den of robbers”. Yes, the den is really filled with robbers and He is come back again to clean it. This time is the judgment and He said, (Matthew 15:13) “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted”.

    Judith, please stop calling these so-called disciples with such big titles. Please see what our Lord has to say, “Matthew 23:7-10. He has commanded not say even ‘father’ for the Father is one-in heaven. Appealing to all to stop putting money/donations in the church.

    For they have rejected the Word of God and there is no Holy Spirit left in it. Jesus Christ said, (John 8:31-32), “If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. Does anyone know what is truth? “But strive first for the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well”. (Matthew 6:33)
