Servant of God Mgr Raymond Francis Camillus Mascarenhas, the former Vicar General of the Diocese of Mangalore and the Founder of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Little Flower of Bethany was a holy priest of the Diocese of Mangalore. His memory is fresh in us, though he went to his eternal abode in the year 1960. He is remembered for his pastoral zeal and commitment.

Mgr Mascarenhas was a renowned educationist of his time and visualized education as a means to give life and transform the ignorant, especially the poor and the girls.

I am Jenova. My husband’s name is Thomas. We are from Idintahakarai, Tamilnadu. I am a member of BLA (Bethany Lay Associates) Idinthakarai. I am very close to Bethany Sisters. 

I had gone through so many difficulties and problems in my life. I suffered a lot, even the ill treating from my parents. I was all alone in all my sufferings and struggles. Nobody took interest to settle me in marriage, not even my parents or relatives. Earlier I thought I would live as a spinster, since I had no support from my family. I was already 39 years old and to get proper match is beyond my imagination. But I had deep faith in the God of the impossible. Bethany Sisters were a great support for me and they advised me to express my needs to God through the Servant of God RFC Mascarenhas. I too had a great love towards this Holy man. I cried bitterly and prayed before the statue of Father Founder that I may have a good future.  

To my surprise the next day a proposal came which was destined for me by God. I got married at the age of 39 and my life companion is 45 years old. Our next concern was a baby. I continued to pray with deep faith and hope, for a child. Though doctors could not give much hope to me, our powerful God gave me hope in my life and I gave birth to a baby boy at the age of 40. 

I believe my marriage and the baby I got is a miracle that happened in my life through RFC Mascarenhas, and I am happy to tell you that my mother-in-law’bs family also bears the name of Mascarenhas. 

Now we are living happily. I pray that Our Founder may be raised to the honours of the altar soon. I raise my gratitude to God and all those who prayed for me. 

Parise the Lord !
