Welcome to Our Site...

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.


Surprised Healing of the Toe

I most gratefully and humbly would like to put on records and testify the favours received by the intercession of our Father Raymond Mascarenhas, Father Founder of the Congregation of the Sisters of Little Flower of Bethany.

My husband Narendra Gurung (non Catholic) was suffering from severe infection on his right toe for which he was even hospitalized for 9 days in February 2012. Doctors diagnosed it to be cellulitis. The infection deteriorated. Despite being treated by several doctors and skin specialists for months even to the extent of surgically removing the nail off the toe, there was no sign of cure. The toe continued to puss with excruciating pain. He could not walk even.

I, being a member of the Bethany Lay Associate in Kolkata, was given the Prayer for the Beatification of the Servant of God Father Raymond Mascarenhas. I prayed to Father Raymond every night for the healing of my husband’s toe. To our utter surprise and thanks to God and Father Founder my husband’s toe totally healed. This was manifested when we consulted a general surgeon – he asked us to remove the bandage and said don’t bother nothing is wrong and advised us to just take an x-ray of the toe. The x-ray revealed only a fracture in the toe. Miraculously without even a tablet or ointment the toe totally healed on its own.

I have deep faith, gratitude and love for our Father Raymond Mascarenhas. This is more so after reading the touching life history of our Father Founder. I, till date, continue to pray every day to Father Raymond for his intercession for my two sons particularly for my elder son, Abhishek Augustine Gurung (who is suffering from confused identity) for God’s guidance and right direction in life!

I am confident and with deep faith in God and Father Raymond I will soon testify many more favours of his powerful love and miracles.

May God’s Goodness soon be showered over all mankind through the Holy Canonization of the Servant of God  Raymond Mascarenhas.

Agnes Gurung, Behala Kolkata
