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.


Reunited in Love

I am a Bethany Lay Assosiate member and a parishioner of St Peter’s Church, Doddaballapur. I am convinced that I have received two favours through the intercession of the Servant of God Raymond Mascarenhas. One and a half year ago, my brother’s wife had gone to her parental house and was reluctant to return to her husband’s house. I was praying for her return and reunion. Sisters gave the prayer for the Beatification of the Servant of God on 20th of Feb 2011. I started to recite the prayer with faith; to my surprise with in a week Sunitha my sisterin-law arrived with her son. It was a great joy for the family to see the reunion of the couple. I firmly say it is only through the intercession of Bethany Founder, Msgr Raymond, now the Servant of God who miraculously brought my brother’s wife Sunitha back to us.

Blessing to the family

The second favour I received: My cow littered twin calves. But before the delivery the cow struggled a lot and all of us got very scared as we saw the danger for the life of the cow. So I prayed through the  intercession of the Servant of God with a lighted candle and within a few minutes time cow littered two  calves. I was very happy and I believe it is through the intercession of the servant of God.

Compassionate Lord,

            We thank you Lord for granting us the gift of Fr. Raymond Francis Camillus Mascarenhas (loved humanity and devoted to God) from the bottom of our hearts. I am grateful to you for choosing me to work as a teacher in the School which was started by him.
