A lot of publicity is being given to the feet of ladies being washed in Mumbai. Besides the hype attached to the statement nothing will change after Maundy Thursday gets over.How many priests in Mumbai kissed the feet of the people they washed today if they are imitating the Pope.
I went for to St.Michaels Mahim today for the Maundy Thursday service.Bishop Bosco Penha spoke on some issues and stated that people who do not follow them are away from Jesus.
- Daily Mass not just Sunday Mass
- Reading the bilble
- Visiting the blessed Sacrament at least once in15 days.
- Being a Part of the Small Christian Communities
I am basically a Sunday Mass goer , I rarely read the bible and visit the blessed sacrament and I am not a member of the Small Christian Community but yet I am still a good catholic.
Bishop Bosco Penha was the person who was in Charge of Mumbai in the year 2008 as Cardinal Gracias was sick during that period. Marinagar gardens, our amenities were sold behind our backs during that period. I had written and hand delivered a number of letters to Archbishops House during that period which Bishop Bosco did not even have the decency to reply and to top it all denied receiving the said letters.
Mr. Vincy Nazareth a member of Our Lady of Lourdes CHS Ltd, I , Secretary of Our Lady of Vailankanni and Perpetual Succour CHS Ltd and two Church tenants met Bishop Bosco on 6th June 2009 with regard to the Marinagar Gardens being sold.He denied they were sold and said that Marinagar development was an on going project.Bishop Bosco then fixed the next meeting to be held on the 4 th Saturday as per my convenience, as the 2nd Saturday of the month was too short a period and told us that he would also send us letters. Surprisingly Mr. Vincy Nazareth told me that only 3 letters have come instead of four.On further investigating the matter not only me but Vincy Nazareth was also not called for the meeting.
Why were we not called ? Both of us represented Co-operative Housing Societies so we would have stakes in the deal as land owners so he did not want to talk to us.
Bishop Bosco washing of feet and even the full body means nothing.You will never get any closer to Jesus.What needs to be washed is your heart. Wash ones greed to covet other peoples properties/ gardens. Wash ones heart of revenge and of falsely framing people and woman in particular and throwing her out of the Parish Council in Dadar.Wash you mind and cleanse it so that innocent people are not framed.
Tell me there are so many catholics who do not hear Sunday Mass due to genuine reasons are they doomed to go to hell?
It is better not to say mass but lead a good life.Chances are you will reach heaven faster.
