Newly appointed Delhi Archbishop Anil Couto’s sermon in Old Goa at the feast mass of St.Francis Xavier given at the background of the massive scandal of sale of Vanxim island by Goa Archbishop Felipe Neri Ferrao in gross violation of Code of Cannon Law deserves deeper reflection. The feast took place on 3rd December 2012. Archbishop Couto for diplomatic reasons never mentioned scandalous Vanxim sale in his sermon that was split in Konkani and English yet it was the unannounced context of his sermon.
Before proceeding further it is important to note as to how Church in Goa has been ruled by bamani agenda with complete violation of Canon Law. Detail violations are documented at the links below:
One important element that stands out after decoding and contextualizing this very important sermon: the violation is not just of the code of canon law but it is the case of war between the God and Satan where in the Goa Archbishop has been captured by satanic powers that have operated to effect scandalous sale of Vanxim in Bamani conspiracy that affected negatively those professing catholic faith and those who are not, for residents on Vanxim island are not just restricted to those following Christian faith. The sale of Vanxim thereby has affected those across the board and it is important to decipher and decode the undercurrents of this murky scandal and the implications of the sermon of Archbishop Anil Couto, publicly.
At the very beginning of the English sermon itself Archbishop Couto called Satan as the father of lies. Next he mentioned 1 Peter 5: 6-11 that reads “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, so that he may exalt you in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you. Discipline yourselves, keep alert. Like a roaring lion your adversary the devil prowls around, looking for someone to devour. Resist him, steadfast in your faith, for you know that your brothers and sisters in all the world are undergoing the same kind of suffering. And after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, support, strengthen and establish you. To him be the power forever and ever. Amen.”
The message of this passage is pretty clear: it is the devil that has taken hold of the affairs that led to the hatching of Bamani conspiracy of sale of Vanxim island wherein Goa Archbishop Bamon Felipe Neri Ferrao in his capacity as head of diocese sold 4,85,275 square meters of Vanxim island to another Bamon Mahendra Gaunekar just for Rs. 55,04,150/-, who in turn sold it to corporate Ozone group for Rs. 50 crore with obligation that bamon Gaunekar must clear out all the mulnivasi tenants from the island and hand it over for the pleasures of super rich of the world to set up Golf course, spa, private marina, casino, luxury hotel, helipad etc. This sale was marred by satanic moorings from the beginning.
This has operated so closely on the face of all the priests and nuns, diocesan and religious that they have done nothing to avert this Bamani satanic takeover of Goa Church leadership by our adversary the devil that prowls around, looking for someone to devour. The priests and nun professing catholic faith, consecrated and ordained has first preference to resist him. The tangible and intangible, open and bold resistance from priests and nuns to all the satanic maneuvering done to suppress mulnivasi people in Vanxim is yet to be witnessed, it is still pending. They are still murmurs, sometimes whispers. Hope things will change for better in the days to come. The biblical passage shared by Archbishop Couto at feast mass is full of hope and optimism too: And after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, support, strengthen and establish you. To him be the power forever and ever. Amen.
The implication of this biblical passage is that no matter that we are forced into bamani conspiracy by the satanic deeds of Goa Archbishop Felipe Neri Ferrao by violating Code of Canon Law and selling Vanxim, the triumph of justice is round the corner. Ever since the outbreak of open resistance in 2010 against sale of Vanxim on 11 February 2006 on record by Goa Archbishop Ferrao, water flow in Mandovi has been witness to all the torture and agony that people of Vanxim has been subjected to. Time is not far when these very waters will rise up to swallow all those responsible overtly and covertly, on the centre stage and those behind the scene; for nothing remains secret for infinity.
Archbishop Couto’s sermon was clear cut in signaling the direction of struggle: Abide in the Lord and bear fruit in the kingdom of Lord. He was referring to John 15:5 “I am the wine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing.”
One more aspect become very clear here: Goa Archbishop Felipe Neri Ferrao did no abide in Christ even though he is an Archbishop and he was supposed to do so without failure. This is clear from the fruit of the actions of the Goa Archbishop in selling Vanxim with scant respect to Bible as well as Canon Law that governs the conduct of the Archbishop. Yet like a prophet he goes around the world preaching on various things like Small Christian Communities. However the deeds of Archbishop in Vanxim are unbecoming of a prophet for the fruit of his deeds are the sufferings of Vanxim people making umpteen number of trips to the deputy collector’s and Mamlatdar’s court in Panjim that needs hefty fees to the lawyers.
Bible itself has decided and written about the destiny of people like Goa Archbishop Bamon Felipe Neri Ferrao. Mathew 7:15-17 is very apt quote from Jesus “beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.” Sale of Vanxim with clear cut violations of Code of Canon Law has proved that Goa Archbishop is a ravenous wolf behind his outward appearances. The fruit that he has borne is of Sale of Vanxim which is the work of devil. The future that Goa Archbishop has crafted for himself is one of the moments when this tree bearing bad fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire as per Mathew 7: 15-17. This is particularly so if he does not take steps to change the way things are going and things are still not out of bound of the Goa Archbishop. By acting stubborn hearted he is only marching on the road to fire. Hope he repents and acts or it may just be too late for him, for flames of fire are eagerly wait to engulf all the trees that does not bear good fruits.
Bible itself is very well aware of possibilities of the Church ministers like Archbishop of Goa Felipe Neri Ferrao being used by Satan for devilish ends. 2 Corinthian 11: 14-15 reads “And no wonder! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is not strange if his ministers also disguise themselves as ministers of righteousness. Their end will match their deeds.” So from the deed of the Goa Archbishop Felipe Neri Ferrao who in his personal name on record sold Vanxim Island, it is clear that his ends are satanic. Goa Archbishop has indulged in not just plain violations of Code of Canon Law; he has violated the very spirit of the institution that that he is heading – the Church. He not only violated code of Canon Law but also declared in newspapers and on websites through signed statements from Fr. Francisco Caldeira that Vanxim sale has been legal. This means he lied to everyone publicly. Lying to protect Bamani interests is allowed as per Bamani law of Manusmriti as pointed out by Mahatma Joteerao Phooley in introduction to his magnum opus Gulamgiri on 1st June 1873.
Bible does not promote telling of lies in any form. In fact lying is one of the seven things that Bible forbids. Proverbs 6:16-19 states “there are six things the LORD hates, seven his inner being detests: the proud look, the lying tongue, hands which spill innocent blood, the depraved heart, feet which speed towards evil, a false and lying witness and the man who sows discord among people.” Here bible is in sharp contrast to manusmriti. Goa Archbishop Bamon Felipe Neri Ferrao is conducting himself as per Manusmriti and not as per Bible. Violation of Code of Canon Law for Goa Archbishop is a child’s play; he fooled himself believing he will go unnoticed and unpunished. Archbishop has subverted Bible, subverted Canon Law, subverted Church, and subverted interests of mulnivasi people professing Christian faith and those who are not in Vanxim. He has been impartial in his bamani escapades in Vanxim Sale that is purely satanic enterprise.
Delhi Archbishop Anil Couto during the sermon was very aware of the sufferings of those in the middle that stick out their necks out and become witness to the Word. He quickly pointed attention to the sufferings of St. Paul in his second letter to Corinthians (2 Corinthians 11:24-28) that reads “five times I received from the Jews the Forty lashes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods. Once I received a stoning. Three times I was shipwrecked; for a night and a day I was adrift at sea; on frequent journeys, in danger from rivers, danger from bandits, danger from my own people, danger from Gentiles, danger in the city, danger in the wilderness, danger from false brothers and sisters; in toil and hardship, through many a sleepless night, hungry and thirsty, often without food, cold and naked. And besides other things, I am under daily pressure because of my anxiety for all the Churches.”
One can decipher from this passage that the battle for truth will not be won without sacrifices and sufferings. Archbishop Couto placed St. Paul as a model of suffering and determination. It is a message that those marching against satanic empire will not be without sorrows and afflictions yet with determination we must march on, the fight has to be fought, victory has to be won, even though costs are less or more, struggle must go on, Bamanism must be blow off, Satan must be crushed under the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ whom Goa Archbishop Felipe Neri Ferrao was supposed to serve but has betrayed like Judas through Vanxim island sale in violation of Canon Law to promote Bamani agenda against mulnivasi people. Judas paid for his betrayal with suicide.
Towards the end Archbishop Couto in his bold voice projected Lawyer Sr. Soma Sebastian as a new role model who uses Law as her weapon in defense of mulnivasi migrants in suburbs and streets of Delhi. As hap middle class catholic Kerala girl with long fashionable hair completed her graduation in Commerce and then joined convent much against the wishes of her family who tried their level best to dissuade her. Her family pressure was not enough to withhold her, and she entered the convent, completed her one year theology followed by LL.B. Ever since she is using law as a weapon to give justice to migrants in Delhi suburbs. Her work was profiled by Times of India of December 1, 2012 and was quoted during the sermon by Archbishop Anil Couto. This projection is a sharp departure from presenting Mother Theresa as role model ‘use of law as a new weapon is in fulfillment of piety and charity’ faithfuls were told in signaling that they are now to take up studies in law to fulfill the call of Justice. However there was no discussion in his sermon as to why people are forced into Suburbs and streets of Delhi or from where they come from or what is their ethnic identity as per articles 340, 341 and 342 of the India Constitution?
Praises to the work of Sr. Soma Sebastian from the Archbishop certainly goes against prevailing atmosphere in which priests and nuns in Goa are actively discouraged from studies in law. The discouragement comes from the Goa Archbishop Felipe Neri Ferrao himself. Study of law would mean that all the violations of Canon law that Archbishop is indulging in would be noticed, if not challenged; for the truth escapes from the cracks in the wall.
Cultivation of ignorance of Law amongst priests and nuns in Goa diocese has been the very unfortunate consequence of bamanism and satanic devouring of Church leadership in Goa.
Archbishop Anil Couto did not forget to end his sermon with a call to pray with Blessed Mother Mary who herself said ‘Yes’ to the call. For role of women is crucial for this struggle.
Archbishop Anil Couto spoke boldly even though it is unsure as to how many heads of 166 dioceses in India would agree to his views. Yet for people of Vanxim it was very good sermon that taught to decipher God from Satan based on the fruits of the person, fruits he/she bears based on visible conduct of life. Yet he laid the work of Satan exposed thread bare.
Archbishop Anil Couto had earlier visited Vanxim Island in 2004 while he was Auxiliary Bishop and celebrated the main feast mass of patron “Santus Christus” with a beautiful Homily. This Island was sold two years after his visit by Goa Archbishop Felipe Neri Ferrao.
The conclusion can be drawn very safely: Goa Archbishop Felipe Neri Ferrao has been functioning as per manusmriti and not according to Bible or Code of Canon Law. Vanxim sale is an evidence based on which this conclusion has been arrived at. Bible and Code of Canon Law are enemies of bamanism while Manusmriti is a governing document of Bamanism. Archbishop Felipe Neri Ferrao even though has been sworn in as an Archbishop to uphold Bible and Code of Canon Law, in practice he is upholding Manusmriti and systematically entered into secret alliances with enemies of mulnivasis and friends of Bamon Raj and Satan, and Vanxim sale is its fruit for the world to examine, reflect and introspect.
