    He is a rare priest who practiced Christianity through real life deeds and not just preaching. He not only built many church / school buildings but personally took interest in uniting communities and families. Had great interest in Agriculture. Helped many poor families to build houses, find jobs , get education. He never looked at religion or caste while helping people. People of all religion used to respect him for living truly in Christ. Difficult to find such a priest in today's world. May his soul rest in peace.

    Saddened to hear this. Fr Mathias was a very humble priest and would reach anybody in need.
    He was mostly appreciated with his services to the old and bedridden in giving the holy communion at their residences. May he enjoy his eternal bliss. R.IP Fr Mathias.
