Rev. Fr. Jerry,
We want to say thank you for your presence in our lives. Our 16 year old son with special needs starts and ends his day by listening to your talks. We are so grateful to Jesus Christ that we have priests like you in our midst who help us to grow stronger day by day in our faith. Your talks can transform lives and can inspire people to lead a true Christian life.

Dear Father Jerry,
I am writing this email to share my joy and proclaim the Goodness of our Lord God.
Psalm 37:4 “ Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart”.
Father, last year I wrote to you about my problems asking your prayers for deliverance from fear, shyness, and depression; I also had problems in my marriage and very bad financial condition. I was trying very desperately for a job from 2 years, and TODAY THE LORD HAS BLESSED ME WITH A BEAUTIFUL JOB. JUST THE KIND I ALWAYS WANTED! And I believe soon my relationship with my husband will be restored fully. All this was possible only when I turned towards “THE WORD OF GOD”. Moreover, the desire to know and LOVE the WORD of GOD motivated me when I heard your message “Showers of Blessings” one year ago on YouTube. I also asked Mother Mary’s Intervention in getting this Job. I told God that I would give 10 percent of my earnings to your noble work and mission of spreading our God’s Word. Father, I thank you for your prayers and your inspiring messages and talks on the Word that has filled spiritual insight and led many like me towards God.
Last month my brother had fever, which the doctors suspected as dengue because his platelet counts were very low when tested, then we went on recalling psalm 91 verse 10 “No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling” that whole day and thankfully the fever turned out to be common viral fever.
Thanks and Praise to our Lord God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

My mom's wrist was swollen, So she consulted doctor at Manipal Hospital. Doctor said its a bone cancer and we need to operate and remove bone tumor as soon as possible. We all were in shock and couldn't accept it.
I called Father Jerry to pray for her. He said to read Ezekial 37 1:10 twice a day and have faith in God. We all started praying.
Doctor gave 3 options before operation.
1) If bone spoiled little, they will remove tumor with spoiled bone and fill with bone cement.
2) If its little more, then they will remove lower back bone and replace in hand.
3) Last option is removing complete wrist.
It was very hard time for us. Father Jerry's healing prayer we are listening in you tube, which gave us so much strength .. It increased our faith.
By God's grace doctor went with first option. tumor sent for biopsy test. It took 2 weeks to get report. In that 2 weeks healing prayer gave us strength and hope to our family.
Within 1 week we all had faith that God has done the miracle and mom is healed.
Report came on 18th Nov 2014 as "Normal Tumor" and Its not "Cancer". God has done miracle and now doctor said no treatment required. Now she is completely cured.
We really thank God for his mercy on our family and even Fr. Jerry for his prayer and giving us hope.

I completed my graduation in May 2014 and was striving for job. I came to Bangalore and started searching. I asked Fr.Jerry to pray for me and he told me not to worry, God will give me a good and better Job. I started giving interviews in many companies and got selected too. I thought that was the way which God showed me but I was wrong, the offer which I got was rejected because of delay in my results as that was not meant for me.
Later I gave interview in IBM and waited for 2 months. At that time I prayed with God that I am not going to give any other interviews after this because I know that you will give me job in IBM itself, but its your wish not mine and I will give testimony if I get job in IBM. I kept complete faith on God that he'll help me to get into it. I faced many people saying, try in some other companies also don't depend on 1 company but I didn't listen to them.
Because Jesus told, If u have little faith then you can command a mountain to fall in sea and it will.
Here I felt the meaning of these words and experienced too.
God did not leave me and made me get into the same company.
I got into IBM with good shift and with good colleagues.
I thank Holy Trinity for abundant blessings on me and my family and Fr. Jerry for his prayers.

Last year during this time in May 2013 I had come to Mangalore for a visit. And as soon as I came and I met Fr. Jerry in Trinity.
I had just completed my graduation that time and I was terribly disturbed and distressed about where will I get a job and about my career and future.
And what I heard from Father those words of consolation and grace is still in my heart and mind.
While I came for a retreat at Kenchankere and last when I came to ask blessings from Father, he told me to Trust God and Keep faith in Jesus that he will never leave me.
Thereafter i came to Mumbai in June, trusting only in my God and the Psalm 23 I read three times and I went for the interview here in Mumbai.
There were 126 people who had come for an interview that day and out of that only I got selected because My God had already prepared a Job for me there.
This June 2014 I complete one year with this company Capita India.
And it is only because of trusting God and his blessings that has helped me to sustain and blessed with a good job and good future.
I thank you Fr Jerry for always praying for me and above all thank you for the touching retreat talks that you upload in the website. I always make it a point to visit website dmsworld.in to hear the word of God.

Pray because it is needed,
Needed to bring near your enemies end,
To end all those wrongs and hatred,
Prayer filled with Spirit and Truth is needed.
For joy and peace pray,
If you are sad and your feeling bad pray,
You are happy and your laughing praise,
Pray to God, praise the Lord everyday.
In the days your living lean on him,
At your death bed remember him,
Call unto him day and night,
For God alone can protect you and reach you out.
Only Jesus and no one else can listen to you,
Call unto Jesus, on whom even saints and angels leaned on too,
The end is near and the world will fade,
Only Jesus can save you from going to the Hades.
- K. Maria Lobo, Mumbai
