The art of fooling the Catholic Laity- Adv. A.M.Sodder

As a society we had approached the original owner of the land ie St. Micheals Church to give us permission to build a ring well as my society is having water problems. We are forced to approach Fr. Simon Borges the 76 year old Parish Priest of St. Micheals Church as the Church has not given us conveyance within four months of society registration ie on or before 19/05/2004. My society had sent all plans and had given the said plans through the Bethany Sisters who own two flats in the society showing the exact spot where we intend to build the ring well to Fr. Simon Borges.

Sadly despite a year passing we have still not got the permission from this Parish Priest who returned two days ago after surgical procedures were carried out in his cardiac system and stents were put. We, pray that he gets well soon.

Now this priest despite being born on 10/07/1940 ie he will complete 77 years in 45 days continues to be a Parish Priest . Canon Law states that Parish Priests should resign at 75. Thanks to our Cardinal Oswald Gracias who has appointed him, needs him  and cant find a replacement in his scheme of things.

What is really stunning is that Cardinal Gracias who is fully aware of the denial of the  well permission is hand in gloves with him and pretends that he is not aware.

Cardinal Gracias told the media in 2011 that he had constituted a inquiry committee to look in the Maringar deal. Till today my statement ( Complainant) has not been recorded. Since I am a catholic and he is the leader of the Catholics in Mumbai we allow ourselves  to be fooled by him.

While 112 catholic families continue to have problems regarding water, the perpetrators sleeps well in  ac rooms .

The sad part of it is that we call ourselves catholic , commit criminal offenses by not giving conveyance in the stipulated time, pretend to be blind when tenants who were already rehoused once are shown as yet to be rehoused, resell others gardens which were sold to us  flat purchasers , as amenities and to top it all we pretend to be Catholic and give wonderful preachings which are not put into practise.

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.
