    Congratulation to my Beloveds Rev. Fr. Franklin D'Souza. May Infant Jesus and Mother Marry send showers of blessing on you and give good health and long life to serve God’s children in this world. God has chosen you as a priest and love you more to serve his children and show the good way. May God help and guide you to serve his children as per his own wish and imagination. Leave ego & selfish - help God’s children to live happily in this world. Most of the people come out from race track now they don’t know how to go back to the same track and how to run the race kindly help those kind of people to revert back.
