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.


Loving tribute to Servant of God Raymond Mascarenhas

This letter to you from Francis Gonsalves of Belgaum. One day through our Parish Priest, I got a copy of “The Compassionate Pastor” 2010 edition. Never before, I heard the name of Father Raymond Mascarenhas. However, as I went through the book I loved to read repeatedly the works of a great and true servant of God. However, during those difficult days the dear Father struggled so hard for the poor in helping them and doing other numerous good works. 

After reading the book, I started spreading the works of Father Mascarenhas to my friends, relatives and well-wishers about the true servant of God. Then after contacting to you on phone, you sent me the later editions of The Compassionate Pastor. Thank you so much dear sister. Later you also sent me the holy pictures containing prayer for the beatification. On receiving, I started distributing them, asking the recipients to send testimonies after receiving the favours. 

I regularly pray at least twice a day for the early beatification of Father Raymond; may he receive the honours of the altar very soon. May he be declared a saint; may he be known to the whole world. May all read his name in the spiritual calendar, in bible diaries by celebrating his remembrance day as a feast day. 

I have suffered a lot in my life since my birth, now I am in the age group of 59 and suffering from severe diabetes and blood pressure. I am suffering from some other ailments too, but I have not given up praying. 

Now through the intercession of Father Raymond Mascarenhas one by one my sicknesses are being healed. Since 12 years, I was suffering from severe burning sensation of the feet. It was irritating me too much and it was difficult for me to walk. Now I am feeling far better and can even walk without any problem. Secondly, I am having severe cervical pain I am sure that this also will be healed.
