The festival of Christmas is celebrated all over the world with great pomp & show. 2000 years back Jesus was born as Good-News to mankind. The main purpose of his birth into the world is to wipe away the sins of all, to give peace and everlasting life to his people whom he loves so much. The angel of Lord appeared to Joseph and said “She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, for he will, save his people from their sins” (Mathew 1:21).
Today Jesus is standing at the doors of our hearts and seeking place to be born. If our doors are closed with worldly celebrations, then it is sure that we have no knowledge of the “Holy Bible”. This is possible only if we hear his word and treasure them in our hearts like Mother Mary. “But Mary treasured all the words and pondered them in her heart” (Luke 2:19)
In the old testament God has spoken about his mercy to Abraham, Moses and many other prophets. “Because the Lord your God is merciful God. He will neither abandon you nor destroy you, he will not forget the covenant with your ancestors that he swore to them” ( Deut 4:31). Now at end times God is speaking about his mercy through his son Jesus. Jesus is a merciful God. His love for humankind is so much that he wishes no one should escape from his merciful love. Jesus never desires to punish sinners, but he is willing to heal them through his mercy. “He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from destruction” (Psalm 107:20)
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind”. This the greatest and first commandment of God. And the second commandment is “you shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:36-39)
In the Holy Bible what God has commanded we have to follow and there is no other option than to follow!! If we are faithful to the greatest two commandments of God then we can say that we are living according to God’s Ten commandments. “If anyone who loves God is known by him” (1 Cor 8:3). “Let us love one another because love is from God, everyone who loves God is born of God and knows God” (1 John 4:7-8)
Right from the olden times referring to the Old Testament God sent many prophet’s to proclaim the good news and what God wanted to speak to his people to be known through His prophet’s. This present time God has sent Fr. Jerry as a prophet to us. If someone is reading my testimony and really want to hear from God, listen to Fr. Jerry.
I am Steevan from Chandor Goa. I was well settled and was having a good business, daily enjoying, good food, drinks, parties, picnics, no importance to God Sunday Christian. This went on for many years suddenly there was a stop in my life. My business was gone my close relative over took all my business and I was left with nothing. I had no job or any source of income. Being at home I started watching Rophe TV and was very much keen to listen to Fr. Jerry’s talks (sermon’s). I started attending Fr. Jerry’s retreats. After five retreats I spoke to Fr. Jerry about my life and expected some guidance. He was in a hurry. He told me only four sentences.

Spirit of wisdom have control over me,
Keep me from distractions while I do God's will,
When trials come I will stand still,
For you are my refuge in the times of evil.
Let my whole body glorify my God,
With all my substances I will magnify my Lord,
I will bless the Lord with all my heart,
I will stand at his court writing and singing new songs.
Spirit of God you are my friend,
A very help in times of need,
I want you in every work which I undertake,
So that I may do only what is God's will is.
Sanctify my soul with your fire,
Take away from me all who are liars,
Let your glory shine in every corners of my life,
And my mouth will shout only the joyous cry.

When we are dead,
We sleep on bed,
Where worms are our friend,
This all our soul won't care.
We go to sleep,
Where we can't feel,
What the world is doing,
What the world is thinking.
Our God laughs sitting in the heaven
When people being so foolish,
Praying for their dead fellow's spirit,
This is of no use please understand ye people.
After death there is no chance,
To reconcile, to repent and to be get cleansed.
This life is unique, which God have gifted us.
Live it to get more closer to Christ Jesus, the way towards our Heavenly Father
Pray for those who are dead,
Dead in the sense who are slaves serving this evil world,
Pray that may God save their soul,
So that while living they may gain that eternal abode.
