I devoured these Saintly books voraciously.
The Don Bosco magazines came to our home in Malaysia from, Matunga, Bombay, India. From the age of seven or eight I began to seriously read each page. I suddenly realised I was not reading them just for the sake of a read but I was absorbing the articles very passionately. I began to imitate some of the saints written about in the pages. I would read the books of these saints over and over again. They created such an impression in my life, that I wanted to talk like them, dress up like them and also to copy their spiritual activities. Their lifestyles were being ingrained in me. After reading these books I would spontaneously kneel down and pray. This is the effect of the saints in the books, so I followed their style. Then I moved on one degree further and began to read books about the compassionate heart of Jesus, exemplified by the lifestyles of St. Dominic Saviour, St Therese of Liseux and St. Anthony of Padua. I found these books fascinating and their lifestyles compelling. I was drawn like a magnet to find the key for spiritual growth! It was obvious these saints had a passionate love for Jesus.
When I arrived in London, in the middle of the 1970’s, my spiritual growth moved on to another dimension. I decided to go on spiritual pilgrimages, attend revival meetings, camp meetings and anointed prayer meetings. I heard so many men and women of God preaching and proclaiming the Word of God powerfully. Every evening I would painstakingly go through my radio wave bands to scout for Christian spiritual items that uplifted my spiritual life.
I must confess that there are still some religious aspects experienced during my childhood days that till today affect me in an incredible way. An example being, when Our Lord’s Prayer is sung passionately and slowly in Latin. This singing just draws me into the Presence of God.
Please do pray The Lord's Prayer daily.
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your Name,
Your kingdom come, your will be done,
On earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
[For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are Yours
now and for ever.] Amen.
Blessed Be The Name of Jesus Christ
In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti.
In name of-Father and of-Son and of-Spirit Holy.
Pater noster, qui es in caelis,
Father our who are in Heaven
sanctificetur nomen tuum.
may-be-hallowed name Your
Adveniat regnum tuum.
may-come kingdom Your
Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra.
may-be-done will Your as in Heaven and in earth.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
bread our daily give us today
et dimitte nobis debita nostra,
and forgive us debts our
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
as and we forgive debtors our
Et ne nos inducas in tentationem:
and don't us lead in temptation
sed libera nos a malo. Amen.
but free us from evil Amen
Mark Chapter 8 verse 35
Only those who throw away their lives for My Sake and for the sake of the Good News will ever know what it means to really live.
We want to acknowledge our Lord's blessings on this website. It was blessed and inaugurated officially on 1 August 2002.
The counter below was introduced for the first time on 8th January 2014. Sadly the firm who installed my previous beautiful counter many years ago,and filled it with exciting statistics,suddenly went out of business.As a result we lost all our treasured statistics.
We like national flags portraying on our website so we are re-introducing the flag counter freshly again through another firm.It is so exciting to see visitors coming from the far corners of the earth!
