In addition to conducting “yoga classes” and running a “homeopathic dispensary“, the information board on the church premises announces the on-campus presence of a “Kripa Medical Dispensary“. These dispensaries are run by the KRIPA Foundation that was founded by Bombay archdiocesan priest Fr. Joe Pereira. This priest propagates the Iyengar yoga of his guru B.K.S. Iyengar. He has been honoured by the archdiocese of Bombay and his programmes are advertised in the Bombay archdiocesan weekly, The Examiner. In addition, Fr. Joe Pereira is the Indian promoter of the “Christian meditation” of the World Community for Christian Meditation (WCCM). This “Christian meditation” invented by the late Fr. John Main OSB and taken up by its present protagonist Fr. Laurence Freeman OSB is thoroughly New Age. It again is regularly advertised in The Examiner. The Kripa Board of Trustees meets at the Archbishop’s House, the seat of Oswald Cardinal Gracias.

Concerning The Examiner, in my article

THE LABYRINTH

http://ephesians-511.net/docs/THE_LABYRINTH.doc,

I wrote:

The New Age labyrinth has overrun parish churches, religious houses and retreat centres in the West. Now it has reared its head in India, not surprisingly in the Archdiocese of Bombay which has become — with the official approval of the Cardinal Archbishop Oswald Gracias through the medium of the archdiocesan weekly, The Examiner — the launching pad for various alternative therapies, New Age organizations, New Age meditations and psycho-spiritual techniques, for example, acupuncture, Centering prayer, Earth-Centred Retreats, the enneagram, homoeopathy, Interplay, Kripa Foundation, magnet therapy,

Myers-Briggs Temperament Indicator [MBTI], Neuro Linguistic Programming, vipassana, the World Community for Christian Meditation [WCCM], yoga, etc.

My research, as documented in dozens of articles and reports at my web site, conclusively proves that the archdiocese of Bombay is the leading promoter of New Age in the Catholic Church in India.

The archdiocese of Bombay is also the operational base of the two leading lay feminist ‘theologians’, Virginia Saldanha and Astrid Lobo Gajiwala, both of who are longtime senior executives in archdiocesan bodies, trusted advisors to the bishops, and who promote the ordination of women as priests.

  1. Michael, this Joe Pereira is a fake and in reality a Sadhu and not Catholic priest! Unfortunately the current Cardinal is spineless and cannot take his own decisions to safe guard the flock!
