My Mother and the Catholic Faith

My Mother Mrs Lena D'sa passed away on May 15, 2016 at the age of 77.

She was a virtuous woman in more ways than one. From the age of 7, she taught me the ABC's of the Catholic Faith and how to be a Gentleman to all concerned. She nurtured the Catholic Faith in me to the nth degree.

Between the ages of 10-15, She built up my Catholic Faith and my Prayer Life by teaching me the Rosary and how to say it, she also taught me several other prayers like the 15 Prayers to Saint Bridget of Sweden, Prayers to the Blessed Sacrament, and Prayers to Our Lady under various titles but specially to Our Lady, Help of Christians to whom she had a tender devotion.

All this, helped me to persevere along Life's way when the going got tough.

Between the ages of 15-20, My Mother taught me the most important prayer in my life ---- namely the Chaplet of Divine Mercy and the 3.00 Prayer along with the Novena to the Divine Mercy which is to be said from Good Friday onwards for 9 days.

The Chaplet of Divine Mercy proved to be "Miraculous" in my life specially when I had to confront various forms of evil both in India and in the United States where I lived for 5 years.

The Chaplet of Divine Mercy when said by me from 3.00 - 4.00 in the afternoon gave me much succour and answers to questions in life.

In 1994, a Chinese Catholic Gentleman who was a lay evangelist from Hong Kong came into my life and the life of my Mother spiritually.

He sent us Tons of Printed Literature on the Divine Mercy Devotion to be distributed to Catholics living in Metro Cities all across India.

Since, We live in Bandra West, in Mumbai -- My Mother in 1994 approached me to help her to distribute Divine Mercy Leaflets to Catholics living in Flats in different parts of Bandra.

This I did with my Mother from 1994-1997.

We used to attend Mass in the evening in different churches in Bandra West and later visit Flats of Catholics with Divine Mercy Literature. On a Few Occasions We did it before Mass started.

My Mother greatly believed in one of the promises connected to the Divine Mercy Devotion that is the Lord would protect those who would propagate his Message of Mercy as a "Mother Protects Her Child".

My Mother was surely one of the greatest Human Beings that ever lived.
