This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
“As we contemplate each mystery of her Son’s life, she invites us to do as she did at the Annunciation: to ask humbly the questions which open us to the light, in order to end with the obedience of faith: “behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; be it done to me according to your word.”
Pope John Paul II
Come, Holy Spirit
A new and universal effusion of the Holy Spirit is necessary to arrive at the new times, so longed for. It is necessary that the second Pentecost come quickly. It can come to pass only in the spiritual cenacle of my Immaculate Heart. You are able to enter through the act of consecration to my Immaculate Heart. I request that this consecration be made by the bishops, the priests, the religious and the faithful. And let it be made by all in order to shorten the time of the great trial which has now arrived.
Come, Holy Spirit
Come by means of the powerful intercession of my Immaculate Heart. My hour is the hour of the Holy Spirit. The triumph of my Immaculate Heart will coincide with the great prodigy of the second Pentecost. A new fire will come down from heaven and will purify all humanity, which has again become pagan. It will be like a judgement in miniature, and each one will see himself in the light of the very truth of God. My motherly Heart will have its triumph over all humanity, which will return to a new marriage of love and of life with its Heavenly Father.
Come, Holy Spirit
Come at the voice of Your well-beloved Spouse who calls You. I am the heavenly Spouse of the Holy Spirit. As, through a singular design of the Father, I have become true Mother of the Son, so also have I become true Spouse of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit cannot resist the voice of the Spouse who calls to Him. And so unite yourselves, each and all, to me, my little children, in invoking today the gift of the Holy Spirit, through your supplication which has been taught to you and is being passionately demanded of you by your heavenly Mother: ‘Come, Holy Spirit, come by means of the powerful intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, your well - beloved Spouse’. And open your hearts to hope, because there is about to come upon you the greatest prodigy of the second Pentecost.
O, Most Holy Mother, we unite and consecrate ourselves to your Immaculate Heart for the quick coming of the second Pentecost, and ardently pray,‘Come, Holy Spirit, come by means of the powerful intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, your well - beloved Spouse’, Amen.

Save the Church in Europe
I came to England for a month’s prayer. The Spirit in Jesus Fellowship is in forty-days’ prayer. The editorial for this month was also set apart for Holy Mary. However, I invite your attention to and seek your prayers for another problem of great significance. The Church and its leadership in England are at the receiving end of a diabolic onslaught. The news that come in the Catholic Dailies are painful and shocking. Satan is using all the weapons in his armoury to destroy the Church in Europe. The cases filed in law courts against priests have shattered the Christian faith. Many have turned against the Church. In Belgium, the police conducted raids on Bishops’ Houses and cases have been filed against Bishops. Legal proceedings initiated against them in 2010 are being made harsher. In 2010 police conducted a raid on the official residence and Cathedral of Cardinal Godfried Dannels in Belgium, prevented the conduct of Bishops’ Conference and even exhumed the tombs of Bishops. The raids conducted recently are on top of all these. Those who master-minded all these seem motivated by the agenda of defaming and
shattering the Church. Legal proceedings have been initiated against a Bishop for the homily he gave during a Holy Mass at Marian Pilgrimage Centre at Noak in Ireland . In the homily he reacted against the forces that attacked the Church, and that landed him in trouble. ‘The Universe’, a Catholic Daily which has a readership of about 2,00,000 in England and Ireland reported the matters thus: “ In his address Bishop Boyce described the Church as being attacked from outside by the “arrows of a secular and godless culture”. Elsewhere, he stated that the distinguishing mark of Christian believers was the fact that “they know in general terms that their life will not end in emptiness”. In fact the above statements were taken as incriminating. The Parliament of Scotland, a federating unit of Great Britain, is planning to enact a law to the effect that gay marriages be consummated in the church and that priests shall bless them. This diabolic law, if enacted and executed, will shatter the sanctity of family life. In fact same-sex marriage, between man and man or woman and woman, a detestable thing in the sight of the Lord, has been legalized in many countries. There are people with many perversities. When they come to occupy power in society they have no qualms to accept similar perversities. When a drunkard becomes a Minister he would support alcoholics; if a fornicator comes to leadership he would be dear to all perverts and encourage all such activities. If a homosexual is in the leadership he would encourage the iniquity to flourish. Righteousness and fair-play have become alien to human conscience. Once Scotland enacts the law, time would not be farther away for countries of Europe to follow suit. If that happens Satan would unceremoniously tear up the mystical body of Christ – the Church. We should not allow it to happen. Sex-education in school causes more than 2,00,000 abortions a year in England, reports say. BBC telecasts on sex-education have been widely protested. The protest raised
by a Cardinal of the Catholic Church against advertisements in the BBC encouraging abortions gives hope. I reached England after a gap of two years. Earlier the influence of Satan could be felt in all aspects of life. A tendency that sanctioned liberal sex education and gay marriages was at large. I had written about the opinions of the Church leaders that homosexuality was not sin at all. But now the old situation has changed. A resurrection of the old self of the Church is emerging. The number of people who react to societal evils are on the rise. One reason for this must be the spiritual services that are organized here, I feel. The Spirit of faith that has been ignited among the Malayalee Catholics is breezing across England. The evangelic activities of Rev. Fr. Xavier Khan Vattayil, Fr. Saji, Dr. John and Bro. Santhosh have occasioned the mercy of God to descent on England. But they are hardly sufficient for saving England. Statistics published recently have predicted England to become a Muslim country by 2050. Even now there are certain areas in the country which have become exclusive Muslim enclaves. I have said all these, dear ones, in order to seek your prayers. It would be difficult, in the present circumstances, for the Catholic faith to flourish in Europe, I would say. Many are deserting the Church. Child-abuse which has become rampant like a pestilence has destroyed the Church. Stories of those who have been arraigned and punished in cases of paedophilia are daily news. These have caused many people to detest and leave the Church; and many have turned to other faiths. I do not blame anybody in this matter. But we should recognize the truth of the matter and pray tearfully. We should redeem the Church from the onslaught of Satan. Many innocent priests have also been victimized along with real culprits. We don’t have to blame anybody on by-gones. Instead we shall beseech God’s Mercy. I have the hope and certainity of recapturing Europe through prayer. Prayer has power. We should pray tearfully. I make an appeal to those priests who read this–please remember England and Europe for a moment in the Holy Masses that you celebrate. Your prayers for both the living and the dead of these countries will be heard. We may remember that it was the people from these countries who ignited faith in our country in the past. Now we are sated in terms of faith. Therefore we shall pray for them now. Once it was their wealth, labour and prayer that flourished the Church in India. Now they do need neither our cash nor labour. But they do require prayer, in plenty. Please be prepared to do that. Through Holy Mary, God will win over Europe, England as well. Keeping steadfast in faith we shall fight for the Kingdom of God till our last breath. May Eurpe be saved through our prayers. Hallelujah! Tom Zacharia, Chief Editor

Who are the Unclean Spirits?
Unclean spirits are the damned souls of our ancestors and of all the dead. During their life on this earth they lived in sin and became slaves of Satan. They died accordingly without reconciling with God. Therefore after their death they continue to work as slaves of Satan by influencing and possessing the living for the spread of his kingdom. It is under their influence that people commit sin and become prey to various ailments which have no known causes, and to miseries and disasters at the spiritual realm.
The possessed :
Are they multiple personalities or schizophrenic? In the previous months we were discussing about the demoniac who lived in the tombs and was healed by Jesus. Saints Mark and Luke have recorded that it
was unclean spirits who spoke through that person (Mk 5:1-2; Lk 8 : 26-39). However, certain scholars of the Bible argue on the basis of modern psychiatry that the said person was a schizophrenic (multiple personality) and it was he himself who spoke and not unclean spirits. (The new Jerome Biblical Commentary, P. 607). The Illustrated Oxford Dictionary defines schizophrenia as a mental disease marked by a breakdown in the relation between thoughts, feelings and actions, frequently accompanied by delusions and retreat from social life.
confess that someone else was forcing him to do so and that he was not doing them on his own. To get them out of this imbroglio she used to pray fervently; he was taken to several persons of prayer but with little consequence. Inspired by the Holy Spirit they came to me one day. I enquired about them in general and about her husband and ancestors. They lived in violation of the first commandment and committed other grave offences; some of them had even murdered their wives. I told her that her son had been tormenting her under the influence of the soul of her husband (his father) which had taken possession of him (the son). In order for his soul to obtain salvation I told her to make a confession for her husband, consecrate Holy Mass, make sin-offerings and pray the Rosary for the intercession of Holy Mary. If she did so her son would never do anything untoward as he used to do earlier, I said. To my surprise she readily agreed to do so since on many occasions the departed souls of her relatives and ancestors had approached her seeking prayers. But she was not aware of the full implications of their visitations and therefore had not taken them seriously. When she got convinced she started praying for them. Then we said a ‘Divine Mercy Prayer’, sought the intercession of Holy Mary and at the end I made a ‘binding prayer’on the souls that influenced her son. Two years later when she met me she told that since that prayer her son had not tormented her or showed any of those symptoms which he had exhibited earlier.
Damned Members of a Household Against the Living
Schizophrenia is not an ailment. It is the self revelation - talk and actions - of one or more unclean spirits that have possessed a person. It is a phenomenon of possession in a person by the damned souls of his ancestors which perscecute and torment the former and his household, this is what the Holy Spirit reveals through the Gospel of St. Luke. Psychologists and other scholars do not seem to acknowledge this. Incidents that are discussed below might throw more light on the above. A dead person persecutes his wife through their son. A widow used to be persecuted by her 26 year old son. On those occasions he talked and gesticulated exactly like his father; he physically tormented her in the same mode as his father did to her. At times he even tried to kill her, from which she escaped somehow. A while after the frenzy the young man used to mellow down and then break-down in repentance before his mother. On those occasions he used to
patience. When she grew up she had only one wish in her life. She wanted to become a mother, grow many children, give them as much love as possible but they should not have those bitter experiences which she had undergone. At the age of 18 Anie eloped from her house, got married and became a mother of six children. At the time of the ‘Study’ the age of her children ranged between 14-23. They had a childhood of mercy. But as time passed by Anie exhibited signs of restlessness. When the children disobeyed her Anie burst out inadvertantly - used the very words and showed the gestures of her mother. Anie began to recognise. ‘Had the spirit of her mother possessed her,’ she surmised (P 22). On such occasions she would go out of her house and when she regained her senses she would return home, comfort her children and reassured them of her love. The scholars who reported the case of Anie do not trust her belief (that the spirit of her mother had possessed her). But we do recognise that. Our own studies hitherto are sufficient enough to convince us that it was under the influence of her mother’s or any of the damned souls of her ancestors that she persecuted her children. (The case of one Mary similar to that of Anie was also reported in the article).
Parents who ill - treat children
Recently I happened to go through an article titled as above in a magazine published more than two decades ago (Manasasthra Masika, Jan 15, 1989, Thiruvananthapuram P 22-26). The article was based on a study conducted in the U.S. on the question : ‘Why do certain parents ill-treat their children very cruelly?’ They had put forward various reasons for such behaviour. The first of them was based on the experience of an ordinary woman Anie which is outlined below.
Possession of the Soul of mother
Anie, in her childhood was ill-treated very cruelly by her mother. She used to be locked - up in the bath for three to four hours. Her body often carried wounds of torture. She endured them all in
Theory of Heredity
Though psychologists differ on the specific reasons behind the phenomenon of ill-treatment of children, majority of them subscribe to the theory of heredity; that is, in a family of either of the parents, father or mother would have a heredity of illtreating children. Heredity exerts a cognizable influence on the behaviour of individuals; and falling into the rut of heredity is an inevitability. Many people are disturbed at this prospect (P-26): How heredity influences man is shown in the following two cases. 1. A Judge on the ground that a woman had undergone ill - treatment during her childhood sent her child to a ‘Child - care center.’ (P. 26) 2. A woman decided not to have children since a therapist (on the basis of the history of the client-woman) told her that she too would turn out to be a child - tormentor. (P.26)
Cruelty perpetuated through generations
Cruelty and other sins are perpetuated through generations, the Holy Bible teaches. It happens according to the word of God (Ex 20:5) that the children of fathers who do not fear God and keep His commandments would be punished for three and four generations. But what Jesus taught in the New Testament was that the punishment would not be limited to three or four generations but would extend to all the generations (Luke 11:50-51). The fact which Jesus taught, the psychologists deduced using their wit. The argument of the psychologists that cruelty is perpetuated through generations and the truth revealed by Jesus that all the generations would be punished are one and the same. This is explained as under :
God does not punish man; but Satan persecutes
When we go deep into the word of God we understand that God does not punish any body. When a person deliberately violates the commandments of God, especially the First Commandment, he becomes a slave of Satan and he and his generations come under the authority and dominion of Satan. The latter uses this opportunity to persecute him and his people. Earlier we have seen how Satan persecutes his preys. By using the souls / spirits of the ancestors which have become the slaves of Satan through their sins in life, Satan persecutes the living. These spirits influence the generations to commit the very same sins that they committed when they
Influence of heredity as claimed by psychologists is the same as the accursed heredity, said in the Holy Bible. Because of the diabolic influences in the generations that have come to them through the sins of ancestors, they commit the same sins of their ancestors. However, psychologists do not recognise this diabolic influence; they are not aware of it either. People behave and generations repeat them mechanically according to a predetermined chemistry of the brain. That is their position (P. 23) Cruelty and misconduct are perpetuated through the genes (P 24). However, there are exceptions (Ibid).
were alive and got damned. Thus their sins are perpetuated through the generations. In fact this truth was known during the Old Testament period also (Vide : Ch 3 of Baruch) This was discussed earlier.
Curse inherited by the descendants of King Soloman
The descendants of King Solomon were persecuted by Satan for his iniquities. In the book of Sirach we read about the accursed family tradition of the King (Sir 47:19-21). He was subject to women, defiled his family line, brought wrath upon his children, and caused the division of the sovereignity of his kingdom. Why did this happen? The fall of King Solomon and the misery of his descendants King Solomon violated the commandment which said: “Do not intermarry with them, giving your daughters to their sons or taking their daughters for your sons, for that would turn away your children from following me, to serve other gods. Then the anger of the Lord would be kindled against you, and he would destroy you quickly’’ (Deu 7:3-4) He married several of them and got deceived. When he became older his wives turned his heart away to pagan gods; he built for them temples and offered incense and sacrifices. Therefore, the Lord God let him down (1 Kings 11:1-14). The sin of King Solomon defiled his familyline. Since the Lord let him down Satan tormented his descendants and his kingdom got divided. Even several years after the fall of King Solomon, God addresses Israel as a “rebellious house” (Ezel 2:7). A great majority of them became rebellious due to the sins of ancestors perpetuated through generations. It was because of this that Jesus said to them: “You are from your father the devil” (Jn 8: 44).
Deliverance from accursed heredity: Salvation of all souls
Is there an escape from this diabolic heredity? Certainly there is. The primary requisite of it is sanctification of our lives - abstain from all sins and sinful circumstances, die and resurrect with Jesus (Rom 6:4-8, 8:1-2); along with that make sinofferings, do acts of atonement, seek the intercession of Mother Mary praying the Rosary. When the ancestors are saved we would get delivered from the
curses and punishments that have come to us through them, our family-line sanctified and heredity blessed. Generations subsequent to us would be able to lead a life in holiness. On the above lines the Diocese of Kothamangalam, Kerala have published a brochure titled : Salvation of Souls and Sanctification of Life. It argues that sanctificatioin of the lives of the living is contigent on the salvation of souls of all the ancestors - be they in purgatory or hell.
would bring forth streams of blessings and graces on children. It is a state where a thousand generations (all generations) come to enjoy the blessings of God since our ancestors loved God and obeyed His Commandments (Ex 20: Deu 5:9-10). There is a beautiful description on good ancestry in the Book of Sirach (Sir 44:1-15). On that St. Paul says : “If the root is holy, then the branches also are holy’’ (Rom 11:16). We shall strive for bringing up a blessed generation for which we shall seek the intercession and protection of Holy Mary and all the Saints.
Hitherto we were discussing cursed heredity. But there exists blessed heredity as well. It is a fact that virtuous living of fathers

My name is Jacob. My daughter Amala (11 years) suffered from hearing impediments. It could be recognised only at the age of five. We consulted one ENT surgeon who said that there was some small growth inside the ear which may be cured by medicine. We bought the medicine and returned but did not take the matter seriously. Now a few months before, the hearing impediment became serious. Cold and sneeze became more frequent. Doctor reported that it was due to infection of the bulging and prescribed uninterrupted medicine. After medicine intake for one and a half months, there was no progress; not only that, cold and sneeze were on the increase. We proposed to conduct the operation during school vacation and the doctor instructed to continue medicine non-stop till then. He gave us appointment for Jan. 17th 2012, but we could not keep that date. On 22nd, the Spirit in Jesus fellowship at our locality was led by Bro. Thomas, counsellor. We spoke to him about the earcomplaint. Brother laid his hand on the ear and prayed. The next day we visited the doctor. He examined the ear and reported that the complaint was completely cured and that no operation was needed at all. Halleluia ! With immense love we thank the Father for pouring out His love through Jesus Christ and the healing of the Holy Spirit through the intercession of the Holy Mother. Jacob Kalathithara, Kochi, Kerala
“Hail Mary...” prayer is so powerful a prayer that the Rosary (prayer) is a key that opens Heaven, I have experienced several times. For that reason the Rosary shall be prayed with utmost devotion. A few hours prior to writing this piece I have been praying the Rosary in my home. Prior to that I worshipped the Lord in hymns and praises. I started the Rosary with the first decade of the Joyful Mysteries. I have been squatting on the floor. Then I heard a voice from within: “Kneel down and pray”. I sprang up, knelt down and resumed the Rosary. I felt as if I climbed up from a pit to a hill top. While praying squatting on the floor I had felt a conopy of darkness above me; but while on knees I felt closer to heaven. I knew that my prayers are being heard in heaven, and felt the presence of the Holy Spirit coming down in the form of a ray of light.
The Holy Spirit gave me a conviction - pay dearly for prayer. Only such prayers would bring blessings. Standing on knees during prayer has a uniqueness. That is a posture of submission of our body to God. Our body forfeits its comfort; it would be longing to sit at ease, but the soul would be longing to pray. A tussle between the body and the soul takes place. In order to satisfy the longing of the soul and thereby to subdue the urges of the body we have to pray forcefully, loudly and with certitude. Such a prayer empowers the soul, strengthens the mind and neutralises the mean instincts of the body. With every prayer there comes down from heaven an anointment of the Holy Spirit and fills us every moment even without our knowledge.
few days. There are quite a few people who pray the Rosary to achieve certain targets; three, six and even twelve 153 beads of the Rosary. I have often wondered at their achievements. I pose a question to them: do they pray at least one “Hail Mary...” from their heart? Prayers that do not emanate from the heart are infructuous, it may be borne in mind; they would not be heard at all. Usually I take one to two hours to complete 153 beads of the Rosary; I do not bother about the elapsing of time while meditating over the mysteries and praying heart - rendingly. I am pretty sure that none of my prayers have become infructuous, since I do not pray half - heartedly or with a
Pray seeing the Mother
Last year during our pilgrimage to the Holy Land we had an occasion to say a Rosary near the lake of Galilee. In the midst of the prayer I shared with my companions a thought inspired by the Holy Spirit. It was as follows: “Hail Mary...’’ prayer is the salutation or praise of angel Gabriel to Mar y. Therefore when we pray “Hail Mary...’’ pray as if seeing the Mother or addressing Her direct on Her face. “Hail Mary’’ prayers are Marian praises. It shall be made deliberately and looking at Her face, imagining that she is standing in front of us. That would be more fruitful. Our mind / thoughts would gradually gravitate to her in a single-minded devotion, withering away stray thoughts in the process. This is cumbersome in the initial stages, but would produce good results in a
“Blessed be the Lord, for he has heard the sound of my pleadings” (Ps 28:6)
My name is Gracy. The water in our well used to get dried up as soon as summer commenced. We were not willing to make it deeper for fear that we may lose even the existing stock. Meanwhile we could meet Tom Brother during a service and ask for his prayers. We believed in the Lord, and trusting in His grace we dug the well deeper. Now there is abundant supply of water. Besides us, four other householders also get their water supply from this well. We thank the Father in heaven, Jesus His son, and the Holy Spirit and Mother Mary immensely for providing us with this abundant water supply. Gracy, Thrissur, Kerala
divided heart. In every prayer I see Holy Mother in front of me by faith. I pray to Her with my heart melting. For that reason rosary prayer is my strength and fort. I do experience clearly and truthfully the in-filling of the Holy Spirit through Her. The courage and sanctification obtained thereby is ineffable. My first participation in a charismatic retreat was at Christ Hall, Kozhikode during February 28 to March 5, 1988. On the fourth day of the retreat before going to bed at night, I went to the chapel for prayer. While praying kneeeling down my inner eyes were opend. A a large ray of light was seen falling on me and it emanated from the two palms of Jesus who stood in front of me. Jesus Christ, Son of God stood before me as a full-bodied man. Both His hands were stretched downwards. I looked at Him in amazement, ecstatically and with great longing. After a few seconds my Lord vanished. Immediately Holy Mary appeared. A fullbodied woman, dressed in a blue attire, I saw her blessing me with both Her hands raised. In that posture she turned right and vanished. Closely on Her heels appeared two messengers of the Lord and then had a vision of Heaven, Paradise, Hell, Angels, unclean spirits and demons - all these lasted for more than two hours. Time was past 11.30 p.m. Everyone was in deep sleep. I felt trepid to walk upto my room. The joy I experienced while seeing Jesus and Mary was lost when I saw Hell and the demons. I felt a great fear as well. Somehow I managed to reach my room, but was afraid of entering the bathroom. Disturbed, I sat on my cot. Suddenly I saw Holy Mary in my room in a standing posture. She had not touched the floor. She was standing in the air. She had held a Rosary which she extended towards me. Her fingers were
seeing rolling its beads. I felt an inspiration that the Mother wanted me to pray the Rosary. The moment I started saying “Hail Mary” I had great peace of mind and courage. I slept at peace. That day during the heavenly experience I had seen a nun with several rosaries hanging down on her waist-belt. They numbered hundreds. They dangled when she walked. I had an inspiration in the form of a command to pray numerous Rosaries. 23 years after my encounter with Jesus I feel deeply grateful. My Mother supported me, trained and nurtured me, gave me Jesus and gave me Holy Spirit. Thank you Mother, Thank you. (will continue)
Holy Mary, Mother of God, I receive Thee in my heart as my Mother. I offer thee myself, my family, and everything I have. From today onwards I wish to be thy slave and also have decided to be a member of the Rosary League and to pray the Rosary. Every rosary that I pray and Holy Mass I consecrate - I submit them all to thee, Mother, for me, my family, the Church, my country, the whole world and salvation of all souls.

Rosary League “I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me. Riches and honour are with me, enduring wealth and prosperity.” “I walk... endowing with wealth those who love me, and filling their treasuries’’ (Prov. 8:17,18,21).
It was the Lord who declared 2012 as the year of Holy Mary. It is a command given to the Spirit in Jesus community. Everyone of us has the responsibility to obey and fulfill it. Each one should create a personal relationship with the Mother and propagate the Rosary devotion. It should be possible to pray the Rosary individually and thus to strengthen the personal relationship with the Mother. One Rosary consists of the 153 beads that include the Joyful, the Sorrowful and the Glorious mysteries. Praying the Luminous mysteries also is desirable. Further, try to lead others into this devotion. Praying the Rosary
in cenacles consisting of two or three persons will be of great blessing. In 1988 the Holy Spirit gave the command to start the Rosary League. While Bro. Tom was in prayer he saw rays of light descending from Heaven and forming into letters before his eyes. It was written as ‘Rosary League’. It was repeated several times. When asked about its meaning the Holy Spirit suggested to form a community of those who pray the Rosary. But in 1988 Bro. Tom had not initiated prayer - services and he had no idea about how to organise a thing like that. Nothing of that sort was heard of earlier; the name by itself did not appeal as well. After a while a fellowship named ‘Rosary Army’ was started. Some Rosary booklets were printed and distributed also. The initiative did not last long; it ceased its existence. The command of the Lord remained unfulfilled for three years. We had often thought of the stunted state of the Rosary Army. In 1992 the fault was recognised. The Lord abstained from the initiative when it was organised contrary to His suggestion. In the retreats organised at Devikulam in 1992 the activities of Rosary League was resumed. An Enrolment Register of those who prayed the Rosary was made and prayers
were offered for them. Members of the fellowship were informed of the gatherings by post and most of them participated in them. They were asked to pray for each one of them. These prayers were the power-house of Spirit in Jesus. By 2000 the enrolment drive somehow came to a halt; in the course of time that name also could no longer be heard. In this Marian year the Rosary League is the greatest gift that we can present to the Mother. We are reviving the Rosary League. If we go ahead ignoring the dictates of the Lord we give ourselves to be attacked by Satan. Therefore from the first day of March 2012 the Rosary League is getting ready for work. All sorts of iniquities as atheism, terrorism, capital sins, violence, injustice, fatal diseases, suicides and so on are multiplying and rampant in the world, dear
ones. No state administration can stand upto them. Satan has unleashed his anarchic forces across the world. Help of the Holy Mother is the only recourse to confront them. Social iniquities as homosexuality, adultery, abortion etc. have come to subdue the world. A legal battle is going on in the Supreme Court of India for according legitimacy to that unnatural and abominable relation - homosexuality. A new law is going to be enacted by the Parliament in Scotland for gay-marriages to be consummated in the church. Satan is using atheists and rationalists as his advocates for making this unnatural and detestable relation into a sort of sacrament. Promiscuity among school children occasions about 200000 abortions a year in England, a Catholic Bishop observed recently. Many countries are gearing up for a third world war. Iran has declared to wipe out Israel from the face of the earth.
“God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble” (Ps 46:1)
My name is Annamma. On the 2nd Sunday of August 2012 my husband participated in the Holy Mass and returned home. On reaching home and after the meals he began to feel mild chest pain. It increased by the evening; B.P. also increased. As we prepared to proceed to the hospital, I prayed to the Mother, “Please Mother, when the check-up is conducted in the hospital, we may get a report that my husband has no heart complaints; also help us to return home today itself ”. We also intended to testify in ‘Itha Ninte Amma’ Magazine and prayed accordingly. When the check up was over, the reports revealed no heart complaints; only a little B.P. They prescribed some medicines and within one hour we were discharged. Because of the grace of the Almighty Lord and due to Mother’s intercession, there has been no complaints since then. We offer a thousand thanks to the Father, to the Son and to the Holy Spirit and to the Holy Mother for this great grace upon us. Annamma, Hyderabad.
The world is in crisis in all spheres of life - social, political and economic. Refuge in God is the only way for survival. The Rosary is the weapon given to us to make God work and to destroy Satan. There shall evolve a community in all parts of the world that prays the Rosary continuously. The Rosary is the most potent prayer which can crush the works of Satan. With this goal we intend to propagate the devotion to Rosary by enrolling 100, 000 persons. It should be possible to fulfill this target prior to the Feast of Assumption on August 15, 2012. We appeal to all to make this operational. We should work, no, work harder to achieve the goal of saving the world. Take this as a missionary activity. Make a door-to-door campaign, educate people on Rosary and motivate them to pray. One should pray at least a 53 beads of the Rosary a day. But a full Rosary consists of 153 beads of the Rosary. If one is not able to pray that, 53 beads of the Rosary would suffice. In addition to the individual Rosary prayers, others may be invited to form a cenacle to pray the Rosary. Two or three members of a household may come together to pray the Rosary. But it should be in addition to the evening family prayer. If members in a household do not
form a group, two or three persons are sufficient to form a cenacle. Remember the promise of the Lord: “Truly I tell you, if two of you agree on earth about anything you ask, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them’’ (Mat: 18:19,20). The Rosary prayers that we offer would have specific intentions. Enroll your name in the Rosary League; every enrolled person will be given a Rosary card. It would contain a 153 beads of the Rosary and its intentions. Take steps to print the Rosary prayer in all languages - English, Malayalam, Hindi, Tamil, Telungu, Kannada and others and propagate the message. Anyone can enroll in the League provided he/she prays the Rosary regularly. We seek the co-operation of all to enlist 100,000 Rosary devotees to be offered to Holy Mary by August 15, 2012. Take as many copies of the Membership Form (attached to this issue) for enlisting. Every Spirit in Jesus child shall put in the maximum effort towards this end. May God bless you all abundantly and the presence of Holy Mother be with us all always. Tom Zacharia, Catherine Mariam.
Wisdom Became Flesh
HE - SHE
The Word of God became flesh by the power of the Holy Spirit and incarnated as Jesus. The Wisdom of God became flesh and incarnated as Virgin Mary. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people’’ (John 1:14). The Word of God is qualified as “He”. The Word that is “He” became man and incarnated as Jesus. “And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory’’ (John 1:14). If the Word took on manhood, the Wisdom became flesh as Woman. The Wisdom is called “She”. “It is he who created her; he saw her and took her measure; he poured her out upon all his works’’. (Sir 1:9) “She will come to meet him like a mother, and like a young bride she will welcome him. She will feed him with the bread of learning, and give him the water of wisdom to drink’’. (Sir 15:2-3) Wherever there is mention of Wisdom in the Bible it is qualified as “She”. Is there sufficient evidence in the Bible to prove that the Wisdom incarnated as Holy Mary? Yes, in plenty. Take note of the verses in chapter 24 of the book of Sirach :
“ I came forth from the mouth of the Most High, and covered the earth like a mist. I dwelt in the highest heavens, and my throne was in a pillar of cloud. Alone I compassed the vault of Heaven and traversed the depths of the abyss. Over waves of the sea, over all the earth and over every people and nation I have held sway. Among all these I sought a resting-place ; in whose territory should I abide? Then the Creator of all things gave me a command and my Creator chose the place for my tent. He said, “Make your dwelling in Jacob, and in Israel receive your inheritance.’’ Before the ages, in the beginning, he created me, and for all the ages I shall not cease to be. In the holy tent I ministered before him, And so I was established in Zion. Thus in the beloved city he gave me a resting-place, and in Jerusalem was my domain. I took root in an honoured people, In the portion of the Lord, his heritage’’ (Sir 24:3-12) The Wisdom testifies that she held sway in the highest heavens, in the depths of the abyss, over the waves of the sea, over all the earth, over every people and nation. She sought resting place for her in all these. Then the Creator of all things chose a place for her tent. He said : “Make your dwelling in Jacob, and in Israel receive your inheritance’’. Thus in the city of Jerusalem and in an honored people Wisdom took root. Listen to what Baruch says :
“Who has gone up into heaven, and taken her, and brought her down from the clouds? Who has gone over the sea, and found her, and will buy her for pure gold? No one knows the way to her, or is concerned about the path to her ” (Bar 3:29-31) “This is our God; no other can be compared to him. He found the whole way to knowledge, and gave her to his Servant Jacob and to Israel, whom he loved. Afterward she appeared on earth and lived with humankind”. (Bar 3:35-37) Jesus, son of Sirach, who authored the Book of Ecclesiasticus or Sirach and Baruch, author of the book of Baruch, have prophesied identical matters. God sent the Wisdom which was with God to make her dwelling on earth among people. He allowed her a resting place in the land of Israel, in the house of Jacob and in the city of Jerusalem-both books of prophesy say the same thing. “She appeared on earth and lived with humankind.’’ Wisdom by itself is invisible and intangible. It appeared on earth as a woman - as Holy Mary. Yes, Holy Mary is the Wisdom made flesh. For the Word to become flesh God made the Wisdom to become flesh first as Holy Mary and gave us. Holy Mary was born in the house of Jacob, in the land of Israel. Jacob the Patriarch had once seen Mary, the Wisdom in a dream. The word of God says that God gave the Wisdom to Jacob his servant. During his journey from Beersheba to Haran, at a place that Jacob named Bethel,
he saw a dream in his sleep: “There was a ladder set upon the earth, the top of it reaching to heaven; and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. And the Lord stood beside him and said, ‘I am the Lord, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac” - (Gen 28:12-13). It was Holy Mary who helped Jacob then. She stood with him as the Wisdom. On that the Book of Wisdom says : “When a righteous man fled from his brother’s wrath, She guided him on straight paths; She showed him the kingdom of God, and gave him knowledge of holy things; She prospered him in his labours, and increased the fruit of his toil. When his oppressors were covetous, She stood by him and made him rich. She protected him from his enemies, and kept him safe from those Who lay in wait for him; in his arduous contest she gave him the victory, So that he might learn that godliness is more powerful than anything else” (Wis 10:10-12). It is worthwhile to meditate on the above beautiful passage. What is described in wisdom 10:10-12 is an explanation of the dream of Jacob. In his dream Jacob saw a ladder. One end of it is set on earth, the other end reaches upto heaven. The Lord stood there. The angels of the Lord were ascending and descending on it. A ladder that links the heaven and the earth. It is the path to heaven - that is what the ladder implies. What is the use of a
ladder? It is used to descend to the depths and to ascend to the heights. A ladder is used to reach places which are not accessible by ordinary means. For an ordinary person, reaching heaven is arduous. No amount of effort would save a person who lives in this world and in sin. It is difficult for him to enter the kingdom of heaven - paradise - for want of holiness. He wants to enter there, but he cannot. However, he can gain entry with the help of a ladder. The ladder that Jacob saw in his dream is Holy Mary. She is the refuge of sinners. With the help of Mother it is possible for any sinner to sanctify himself through Jesus and thus gain entry into the Kingdom of heaven. Every step of the ladder should be tread carefully while ascending. Each step represents prayer to Holy Mother. Every Rosary that we pray takes us closer to the heaven and unites us with God. Jacob saw in his dream angels ascending and descending the ladder. Holy Mary is Queen of Angels. She is the ladder given to us by God for taking those on the earth to the heaven and to bring the heaven down on to the earth. It was Holy Mary, the Wisdom who helped Jacob in his arduous contest with Laban, his father - in - law. As the Wisdom and therefore invisible, Holy Mary had been with the patriarchs and with the Israel of the Old Testament. The Wisdom and invisible of the Old Testament incarnated as Virgin Mary in the New Testament. She appeared on earth and lived with human kind. (to continue...)
H T NT IN O SA E M TH
The 40 martyrs were all soldiers probably belonging to the famous Roman Legion XII quartered at Sebaste in Armenia (Turkey) about the year 320 or 323. When their legion was ordered to offer sacrifice to the gods by the Eastern Roman Emperor, Livinius, these 40, though of various nationalities, flatly refused, and, instead, dissociating from the rest, formed a separate company. Tormented and then brought for a trial before Agricolaus, the Governor of Cappadocia, they boldly declared that they were Christians and that no torment would induce them to forsake the Faith. Finding all persuasion inexorable, the Governor subjected them to brutal torture and cast them into prison, where they were comforted by a vision of Our Lord who encouraged them to persevere. It was a cruel winter, and they were condemned to lie naked on the surface of a frozen lake in the open air till they were frozen to death. Agricolaus also ordered that a fire and a warm bath should be prepared on the edge of the pond to tempt them to apostatize. The martyrs, without waiting to be stripped, ran joyfully to the spot of combat and undressed themselves, encouraging each other saying that one bad night would purchase for them a happy eternity. Together they exulted: “Lord, we are 40 engaged in this conflict; grant that 40 may be crowned, never falling short of that sacred number!” The soldier who watched, saw angels descending with 39 crowns, for one of them had lost heart and renounced his faith - crawling to the fire he died at the spot just when he expected relief. But another soldier, inspired to confess Christ, took the dead man’s place, thus once again completing the number 40. They remained steadfast while their limbs grew stiff and frozen and died one by one. Now, there was one young soldier who continued to hold out against the cold. When the officers who came to clear the place of the dead bodies found him still breathing, they persuaded him to save himself by renouncing his faith but his mother, standing nearby, exhorted him to persevere. He was then thrown alive into the fire with the dead bodies of his brethren.
Joshy Pandari On the 21st of November 2011 I have been on my way to Adoor, Kerala, to participate in the Spirit in Jesus fellowship. Upto Chengannur I went by rail and from there by road. In fact I stepped out of my house, just 5 minutes prior to the departure time of the train. While proceeding to the railway station in an autorikshaw I was a little worried about reaching the station on time and about obtaining a seat in the ‘unreserved compartment’, since I had not obtained seat in the ‘reserved compartment’. Therefor I have been praying to the Holy Spirit while traveling by the auto. Travel in an old and slow moving auto further aggravated my anxiety, but could not depress my hope since I have had several similar instances in my life when the Holy Spirit helped me out. When I reached the station late I came to know the train was running late by 10 minutes. Leisurely and at peace with the world I purchased a ticket and proceeded to the platform which was already crowded. On the
way I heard a remark that it would be improbable to obtain a seat if all those who have thronged the platform were to board the train. I made a supplication to the Holy Spirit for securing me a seat. As the train arrived I peeped into a few compartments. All were crowded. I pushed myself into the one which stopped in front of me. A few persons were already standing for want of seats. I stood modestly beside one. After a while a person who has been occupying the seat beside me stood up and said that he was to alight in the next station. Thus the Holy Spirit arranged for me a seat. Time passed by in semi-slumber and Rosary prayers. The train reached Changannur. In haste I proceeded to the bus station to catch a bus to Adoor. I waited there for a while, prayed to the Holy Spirit for help. And a bus arrived sooner than late. A few persons were to get down there. But the number of persons who wanted to board the bus was so numerous as to make alighting from the bus difficult. About ten seats were vacant but a hundred persons were clamouring and huckling to get inside
the bus. I was in the rear of all. Obtaining a seat in the bus was impossible. It would take an hour’s ride to reach Adoor. Traveling in a bus and standing all along in the thick of a crowd would be tiring. As a short cut to gain entry I managed to put my luggage on to one of the vacant seats through the open window of the bus and smilingly gestured to the person occupying the nearby seat that I would come in sooner. While most of the persons huckled their way in, I too got inside. While all those who entered before me were standing without obtaining a seat, I pushed forward my way to the seat where my bag was placed. Depositing the bag on the floor I occupied the seat. Thanking God I resumed the journey. Near my seat a very old man was seen standing with much difficulty, but I continued my journery unmindful of him. If I had not put my bag on the seat before I entered the bus, that old man would have obtained that seat. My ‘comfortable’ journey did not last long, however. A tyre of the bus got punctured and the passengers were asked to get down. Disheartened I too got down.
“ I waited patiently for the Lord; He inclined to me and heard my cry” (Ps 40:1) My name is Nirmala. It is two years since I participated in the Spirit in Jesus retreat. Myself and my family have received a lot of blessings from the Mother. I am testifying now for my second child. During the pregnancy of my second child, bleeding occured several times. Before proceeding to the hospital I used to request for prayer help from the Spirit in Jesus brethren and from Marian Koodaram. Therefore when the doctor examined, my child had no complaints. I could not take in any sort of medicine. Scanning in the 7th month disclosed insufficient growth for the child, yet the Mother blessed us with a healthy boy child, born 15 days before the date fixed by the doctor. I praise and thank the Lord Jesus and Mother Mary. Nirmala, Thrissur, Kerala
The conductor told that he would arrange our onward journey by any bus that pass-by. We waited for some time in vain. My legs had begun to ache. Why did this happen at all, I pondered over. Slowly I realised that I had gone wrong; no, my Holy Spirit inspired me, that would be correct. Upto Chengannur I reached on my Lord; and he protected and led me. But at Chengannur I leaned on my wit and forfeited his protection. The angels of the Lord who stood proudly in the front and rear of me kept a distance from me in shame. My relation with heaven got shaken and became fragile. My Holy Spirit became disheartened and moved to a distance. “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you’’ (James 4:8). It was a lapse on my part that caused the tyre of the bus to get punctured and it might be due to me that all the rest of the passengers suffered. Like Jonah the prophet who was thrown out to the deep for his sin, to save the ship with all its passengers
on board from sinking, if I were pushed out at a bus stop prior to the one where the tyre got punctured, all the passengers would have had an uniterrupted journey. The good that emanates from refuge in God and the vice that proceeds from selfishness - that is the lesson we learn here. When we take refuge in God, He leads us. “In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths” (Prov. 3:6). He would not allow us to falter in our steps but helps us to overcome all the hurdles to reach the targets with certainity and comfort. The success that is achieved by one’s wit would be momentary. I lost the seat in the bus because it was not given to me by God but obtained deviously. Often we forget God in the pursuit of trivialities; we ignore his voice. Since God loves us exceedingly he traines us to walk in his ways. “For the Lord disciplines those whom he loves, and chastises every child whom he accepts” (Heb 12:6). He corrects when we err so that we do not get lost. At times he disciplines us; it might be through circumstances, events, bitter experiences and persons.
Do not be under the impression that God is punishing us. Our God is not one who punishes. Since Jesus was charged with all our iniquities - of past, present and future - and punished for them, we are freed from punishment. “There is therefor now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Rom 8:1). However God is disciplining us for we shall not err in his ways. Sometimes disciplining would be painful. “Now, discipline always seems painful rather than pleasant at the time, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it” (Heb 12:11). A father mends and disciplines his son for the good of the latter. A loving father only can do that. He does so because he wants his son to be good. “Know then in your heart that as a parent disciplines a child so the Lord your God disciplines you. Therefor keep the commandments of the Lord your God by walking in his ways and by fearing him’’(Deu 8:56). “Happy are those whom you discipline, O Lord, and whom you teach out of your law” (Ps 94:12). When God disciplines us we are transformed from a life in error to one of obedience, discipline and according to the word of God and thus we become worthy children of God. “The Glory of one’s father is one’s own glory, and it is a disgrace for children not to respect their mother” (Sir 3:11-12). Every such training, correction and disciplining are meant not to take us away from God but to draw us closer to Him, to faith and to His greater glory. The disciplining of God augurs well for those
who accept it with a good heart. Could anyone who rejects it walk in the ways of God? The path of salvation would be alien to him. “How happy is the one whom God reproves; therefor do not despise the discipline of the Almighty. For he wounds, but binds up; he strikes, but his hands heal.” (Job 5:17-18). Every disciplining shall lead us to sanctification of a higher order. We shall allow ourselves to be corrected. Those who love God alone can do so. “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my thoughts. See if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” (Ps 139:23-24). Mundane desires shall not stand in the way of accepting God’s disciplining; in fact, temporal desires and selfish motives do inhibit listening to His voice. They are a stumbling block to a life with God and a (Continued on page 34)

Building Human Organs
Oganovo is a company based in San Diego, California. Their latest science invention is a technology (novogen) which allows living tissue cells to be assembled into patterns and complex structures, such as organs. Organovo has partnered with Invetech. a company based in Australia, to develop a bio-printer. Currently, the bioprinter can grow blood vessels. It is anticipated that within five years the device will construct arteries and by 2020 sophisticated organs will be built by the device.
One of the great inventions of the 20th century are neodymium magnets. Neodymium magnets are permanent dense magnets that produce powerful magnetic fields and are highly resistant to
being demagnetized. This makes them ideal for use in electronics or any electromagnetic application requiring a reduction in size but an increase in power (power to weight ratio). These magnets are used in a wide range of other great inventions and products from computer hard drives, headphones, audio speakers, cordless tools, magnetic resonance imaging equipment (MRI), electric motors, hybrid and electric vehicles, airplanes and trains, to self-powered flashlights, fasteners and toys. Neodymium magnets were invented in the early 1980’s by two groups of physicists working independently from one another- one in the USA and the other in Japan. Despite the name “rare earth”, these elements (metals) are not scarce but widely dispersed in the earth. The reason they’re called “rare” is because it is rare to find them in any concentration that is cost effective for mining and extraction.
that uses magnetism. They’re also potentially fatal if swallowed, so for these reasons neodymium magnets are not recommended for children’s use.
AirPod - Car Runs On Air
In the past hour, worldwide consumption of petroleum exceeded 100 million gallons. In the United States, there are 200,000 miles of pipeline, 170,000 gas stations and 243 million vehicles using petroleum fuels. Guy Nègre, a former aeronautics and formula one engineer is hoping to change all that. He has invented a compressed air technology for cars. Nègre is the founder and CEO of Motor Development International (MDI SA) based in Luxembourg, with research and development facilities in Nice, France. The AirPod is a small four-wheel minicar that uses compressed air to move pistons in a 5.45 hp internal combustion engine. It has a range of 60 miles on a single tank of air and uses a small motor to compress outside air to keep the tank full. The compressor can operate on gasoline, diesel, biodiesel, ethanol or vegetable oil, but can also be plugged into an electrical outlet for recharging. With regular gasoline fueling the compressor, the Air pod averages an

Once airborne, foot pedals move cables attached to the parafoil to direct the flight path. Top air speed is 100 mph at altitudes of 2000 to 3000 feet. Maximum altitude is 15,000 ft. with a range of 180 miles. The Skycar is also equipped with a roof-mounted ballistic parachute for emergencies. Potential buyers will require a powered parachute license, rather than a pilot’s The Skycar is powered by a modified 1000cc, four cylinder, 140hp, ethanol burning, Yamaha R1 superbike engine with a lightweight automatic CVT(continuously variable transmission) gear-box. It has independent four wheel suspension and rear wheel drive. Road acceleration is 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 110 mph. To convert to flight mode, the driver unfolds a para-foil wing from the trunk (boot) and attaches it to the rear of the car. He then flips a switch to change the transmission from road mode, which powers the wheels, to flight mode, which powers the rear fan. Converting from “road mode” to “fly mode” and vice-versa takes about three license, to fly a Skycar and the British government has approved the vehicle as street legal.

Bangalore : It has come to be disclosed that 15000 missionaries from this mission land of India are serving in 166 Countries. This has been reported by the Paris News Agency. These figures are expected to rise, according to the report. 214 Religious Congregations have despatched their members to different parts of the world for missionary work. Most of these
missionaries are doing their services in Africa, Latin America, and in the Pacific Area.
regulators to reconsider how cancer drugs are tested. While new drugs are often tried in patients whose disease is curable, this tends to happen later in development, frequently after the treatment has been under study for 10 years or been approved based on data in those with terminal cancer. Meanwhile, some doctors are wearying of therapies whose ability to extend life is measured in weeks. So they’re beginning to use experimental drugs earlier in disease.
Vatican Israel relations grow stronger
Vatican Israel relations are growing stronger, especially in economic and policy matters. Talks and exchange of ideas between the Vatican and the External Affairs ministry of Israel are bearing fruits. Compared to the other Arabian Countries, Israel has a growing Christian population, mostly migrants from other countries. As per official statistics, the number of Christians dwelling in Israel is 1,54,000. One of the issues in the talk was the payment of taxes for Church properties. The VISA matters of priests and religious who arrive for study and services in Israel also were matters in the talk.
Drink Milk and Enhance Brain Power
London : A glass of milk a day enhances intelligence, say researchers. No age distinction for it: applicable to youngsters and elders alike. Its benefit is not only that the body receives necessary nourishments ; it enhances the power of the brain. Ingredients like magnesium in milk products are a solution for weak memories. Further, milk is good remedy for heart complaints and high B.P. Experiments have proved that youngsters who drink milk well are ahead of others in the matter of memory power and brain activities.

The sin of a person can become the cause for the misery and ruin of his family, fellowship and even society. A timely correction would lead to deliverance. Often it would be inadvertant and trifling errors that cause the forfeiture of providence. (Ps 19:12). One should earnestly crave for and be cautious not to falter in spiritual life. Even the venial sins of the spiritually mature would be grave in the eyes of the Lord. Beware of the felony of Satan. Therefore heed to the voice of the Lord with diligence and draw inspiration from it every moment of your life.
Since even the best of athletes require strenuous training to stay physically fit to remain in the race, sanctification of a person in the spiritual arena is never complete. The latter requires disciplined training of a higher order. It is because God loves us that we are submitted to training and disciplining. However, if we do not give in to correction we are far away from God. “I reprove and discipline those whom I love. Be earnest, therefor, and repent” (Rev 3:1921) We shall pray that Holy Mary who listened to, received and obeyed the voice (word) of God and led Her life cautiously lead us by hand in our spiritual life. May God bless us all. Amen.
