Archbishop’s House (BOMBAY), Reacts to Comments on SILENT VOICE.

It is the utmost desire of  SILENT VOICE, to provide exposure to every word, opinion, observation uttered by our readers. In this context, we have started the practice of putting up readers comments as main post, where it deserves.

This post is special, as you may see; because it is a reaction to one of the comment made by a reader, which is being denied by a high profile authority. Therefore, it needs to be displayed prominently; we perceive.

Not a single reply from him is satisfactory. He along with the politician out here made fools of the villagers asking them to withdraw the dumping ground agitation on 3 grounds. 1) it would be shifted within a year 2) cases would be withdrawn 3) monitoring committee would be set up to see that villagers are not troubled by the stink in that year. All his promises have become false and he has left the sheep and run away by seeing the wolves coming.

I met him on Jan 2013 and he said that if your local politician had lied to you all what can I do. I mentioned that you had asked the people from the pulpit to withdraw the agitation and solve it amicably and when the politician has cheated us, please announce from the same pulpit that because the NCP/Congress have betrayed the Christians, no one will vote for them. And he said he cannot do this. Here when I asked him are you working for Congress, he said YES. Matthew 23:5 “They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear and lay them on the shoulders of others; but they themselves are unwilling to lift a finger to move them”
Now I have left everything in the hands of Lord Jesus Christ (Emmanuel) who has come again in flesh. He will judge the world truly and have no partiality. He will separate the goats from the sheep. For he said: Matthew 15:13 “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted”.

In HIM I remain

    Response received Via E Mail…..

    Dear Mr Corriea,

    I am writing on behalf of His Eminence Oswald Cardinal Gracias, with regard to your comment dated 14 November 2013, on the so called minutes of the meeting of the Editor, Mr Greg Pereira of Silent Voice with His Eminence on 1 November 2013 which was posted on the same blog. This was followed by your comments.

    Your comments dated 14 November 2013 published on the aforesaid blog, “Here when I asked him are you working for Congress, he said YES,” is a false statement. According to His Eminence, he made no such statement. I therefore request you to be gracious enough to withdraw the said statement by publishing an apology, on the same blog of Silent Voice, at the earliest.

    Fr Emmanuel K.T
    Secretary to the Archbishop

    Dear Austin,

    Jesus Christ said, John 8:31, “If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples”. How much are these religious leaders obeying His word, the whole world knows. Acts 20:29-30, “I know that after I have gone, savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Some even from your own group will come distorting the truth in order to entice the disciples to follow them”.

    God the Father says, Jeremiah 23:1-4, “Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! says the Lord. Therefore thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, concerning the shepherds who shepherd my people: It is you who have scattered my flock, and have driven them away, and you have not attended to them. So I will attend to you for your evil doings, says the Lord. Then I myself will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the lands where I have driven them, and I will bring them back to their fold, and they shall be fruitful and multiply. I will raise up shepherds over them who will shepherd them, and they shall not fear any longer, or be dismayed, nor shall any be missing, says the Lord”.

    Cardinal just gave his message on the eve of Christmas. But where is Christmas? Every day is a Good Friday; whether it be Uttan dumping ground, demolition of crosses, church land sale, finance issues, misappropriation of church properties/assets, SEZ, Gorai tourism and many more. Cardinal appreciates Sonia Gandhi stating she is caring for the poor and the downtrodden. (See Hindustan Times dt 22/10/13). Who can not understand that Cardinal is not on Congress’ side ?

    How many times have they asked apology from Gilbert Mendonca for his false promises to the people and the Church ? Will the Cardinal announce from the altar not to vote for the NCP/Congress for their duping, the same way as he had announced from the altar to withdraw our winning-agitation against the dumping ground ? Lord Jesus Christ commanded Peter (on whom the church stands) to look after the sheep – John 21:15-17. Are they doing this ? or have they abandoned the sheep seeing the wolves coming and run away ? Now you all know, why my Lord Jesus Christ called them hypocrites.

    Moses said: Exodus 14:14, “The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to keep still”. And when my Lord will fight against these, who will be able to stand his wrath – neither the religious leaders nor the political leaders. Lord Jesus Christ (Emmanuel) is already come again in flesh on earth. And this time He is come for judgment. All these things must happen for these are the end times. Those who want to get saved from the eternal fire of hell, COME OUT OF THE CHURCH; for Emmanuel-the Saviour is outside the church, not inside. It is time to know the truth; for He said, John 8:32 “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”.

    Cardinal’s Secretary sent me follow-up over apology, however he is not replying to any of the questions. Definitely, there will be more months for reply as his leader did. Just by someone keeping the name of the Lord (Emmanuel) does not mean that he is His follower.

    In Him I remain
