It is evident that all of the above were either auto-responses or sent without studying this ministry’s files.

 

So was the following email from an unfortunate practitioner of the New Age “Christian Meditation”:

From: Rowena Pereira rowena.pereira@tcs.com
Date: Thu, Oct 6, 2016 at 12:20 PM

Dear Ezekiel 
I have never met you, but I thought it appropriate to respond to you. I don’t feel offended by what you have said because you are not a meditator. But I long for you to join us in meditation.     
If you have never meditated, you have missed the opportunity of finding an invaluable treasure, more precious than all the treasures in this world. Please meditate dear Ezekiel. Please. Don’t waste any more time trying to understand or analyze it. Start meditating. Set aside the time in your busy day to meditate and you will begin to enjoy the magic of every moment in your day and all the days to come. Meditating by reciting the mantra, MA RA NA THA (Come Lord Jesus, Come), in your mind and in your heart,  is key to opening  your heart and mind in love and joy to the essence of Creation, to the world, to people around you of Christian and other religious traditions, to the sheer wonder and beauty of this wonderful gift of life, of being born a Christian, a Catholic, a believer in God’s infinite love shown to us through his Son, Jesus. I can’t even express in words what you are missing dear Ezekiel.   
Look for a WCCM group (there are many in Mumbai) and spend time meditating with them. Give yourself six months. The sheer peace and joy it will bring you cannot be explained. You will enjoy a serenity you’ve never known and can hardly imagine. Each session of meditation will bring you closer to understanding the truth, to understanding the length and breadth and height and depth of God’s love for you and for me and for every creature on the face of this earth. His love enfolds the saint and the sinner with an equal measure of love, and you will begin to love the saint and the sinner too.   Your heart will forgive with a generosity you always dreamed of, not because you have been told to forgive, but because you have made contact with the Heart of Creation through meditation. You will feel God’s presence.     
After six months of faithful meditation, we’ll speak again.  Give it a try. Don’t be afraid. The Lord is waiting for you to meditate.  
With warm regards and best wishes

That works out to exactly one letter in his defense from his 400-plus associates and supporters.

 


Receiving the Padma Shri from the Indian President, 2009

 

Fr. Joe Pereira is a notorious name-dropper, exaggerator of the truth, and a consummate liar.

So, what are the lies (both subtle and overt) and criminal activities of Fr. Joe Pereira that I mentioned in the title line of the present report?

 

 




Fr. Joe H. Pereira, most highly felicitated priest of the Archdiocese of Bombay

 

1. Jesus was a yogi, healed people with “energy”, and yoga asanas are prayers

Apart from his oft-repeated, condemnable and most blasphemous lie about Jesus’ being a yogi, (one example at http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/mumbai/Christ-the-supreme-yogi/articleshow/4382443.cms, April 10, 2009), Fr. Joe Pereira often repeats his Hindu guru’s assertion that the asanas of Hindu yoga are “prayers” (http://kripafoundation.blogspot.in/2014/05/jesus-was-yogi-fr-joes-yoga-workshop-in.html). Maybe they are… but to the gods of the pagans.

Jesus is not, never was, a yogi. Briefly, a yogi is one who strives through renouncing the world (yama, niyama), physical contortions (asanas) at times using mantras, breathing of prana (pranayama), going inward through meditation on nothing, and ascends three higher stages finally uniting with an impersonal “god” into which he merges, with the “enlightenment” that he and god are one. Jesus did none of that.

Fr. Pereira is a downright liar. So are all those who claim or depict Jesus as a yogi.

Those Christians who practise Iyengar Yoga as a path way to God and as contemplative prayer, do consider Jesus as a supreme example of a Yogi … When an Indian reads the gospels for the first time, one is impressed by
the energy that radiates from the person of Jesus
. William Johnston in his Mystical Theology says that it is a reminder of
the ‘ki’ the ‘chi’, the prana, the energy that forms the very basis of Asian Culture and religion. Energy goes out of Jesus when he heals the sick and casts out demons… This energy is at work in the world even today.

William Johnston’s book referred to by Fr. Joe Pereira is heavily loaded with Zen Buddhism and New Age.

 

2. The WCCM (of which Fr. Joe Pereira is the leader in India) has no canonical recognition

Therefore he and the Church in Bombay do great harm to Catholics in untruthfully presenting it as a vehicle of authentic “Christian Meditation” whereas it is ecumenical, Buddhist and New Age, and involves the use of a mantra. (http://newagemess.blogspot.com/2011/08/wccm-has-no-canonical-recognition-and.html)

 

3. The tradition of his brand of “Christian Meditation” is an ancient science of the Church

The Catholic Church in India has always used this ancient science for prayer and Meditation, he falsely claims, see http://kripafoundation.blogspot.in/2015/06/our-work-in-field-of-addiction-says-it.html.

Fr. Joe Pereira’s version of “Christian Meditation” was formulated by the personal inputs of an eastern guru-influenced priest, Fr. John Main OSB in 1975, and amalgamated with some Christian practices.

Fr. Main’s guru was a Hindu Swami named Satyananda “who taught him how to truly meditate”: “During the time of your meditation there must be in your mind no thoughts, no words, no imagination. The sole sound will be the sound of your mantra, your word.”

Source:
The Examiner, February 24, 2007: The Rediscovery of the Tradition of Christian Meditation

While in Mumbai, India, it is carefully touted as “Christian Meditation” to keep fooling the Bishops, outside IndiaChristians, Jews, Muslims and Buddhists join in meditation sessions“.

Source: http://www.wccm.org/newslist.asp?pagestyle=newslist&sqltype=current

The meditation is not ancient science but New Age.

Outside of Mumbai, India, where it is simply a smokescreen, these meditators completely do away with the Eucharist which becomes an impediment to their community meditations. Please read the evidence on page 48 of my report FR JOE PEREIRA-KRIPA FOUNDATION-WORLD COMMUNITY FOR CHRISTIAN MEDITATION, and also page 103, subtitle “THE PRIMACY OF THE EUCHARIST AS OPPOSED TO “MEDITATION”.

 

4. The present head of the WCCM is no longer a Benedictine monk as otherwise claimed by Fr. Pereira

The present international head of the WCCM, Fr. Laurence Freeman is no longer a Benedictine monk since many years and therefore Fr. Joe Pereira and Mr. Christopher Mendonca lie when they suffix his name with “OSB” in their advertorials. (http://newagemess.blogspot.com/2011/08/wccm-has-no-canonical-recognition-and.html)

Fr. Freeman boasted that training in his “Christian Meditation” would
outlast parent-organised Sunday worship. (
http://www.cathnews.com/news/704/142.phpm
April 30, 2007)

 

 

 

5. Fr. Joe Pereira did not concelebrate at Mother Teresa’s canonization Mass as falsely claimed by him

Fr. Joe Pereira did not concelebrate at Mother Teresa’s canonization Mass in Rome, September 2016, as falsely claimed by him in his blog and as reported of him in the Indian media (http://kripafoundation.blogspot.in/2016/09/goa-based-yogi-priest-to-join-pope-in.html, http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/goa/Goa-based-yogi-priest-to-join-Pope-in-canonising-Teresa/articleshow/53998854.cms).

I am informed by a person who knows the priest well and attended the canonisation service in Rome that Fr. Joe Pereira was not even in proximity to the altar and that he pays reporters to write these stories on his “achievements”.

 

6. The questionable backgrounds of some of his mentors

The chief one of course is the late yoga guru B.K.S. Iyengar (we need not elaborate on that).

In his homilies, blogs and interviews, he cites, promotes or appeals to Hinduised or Buddhism-oriented priests like Fr. Tony de Mello SJ, Fr. William Whittier, Fr. Laurence Freeman OSB and Fr. Bede Griffiths OSB (for example at http://kripafoundation.blogspot.in/2009/04/christ-supreme-yogi-article-by-fr-joe.html, http://kripafoundation.blogspot.in/2010/05/journey-of-priest-book-by-fr-bill.html, http://kripafoundation.blogspot.in/2010/10/lecture-by-fr-joe-at-stmarys-university.html) and promotes Jungian therapy/therapists (http://kripafoundation.blogspot.in/2012/12/fr-joe-organises-video-conference-with.html, http://kripafoundation.blogspot.in/2014/09/sunday-reflection-by-fr-joe-kripa.html) without informing his listeners and readers that these individuals were out of favour with the Church because of their erroneous teachings or that they were into New Age. Other examples are Eckhart Tolle (http://kripafoundation.blogspot.in/2014/06/there-is-no-resurrection-and-ascension.html) and the Carkhuff model of counseling (http://richardrego.wordpress.com/2009/03/09/fr-joe-h-pereira-awarded-padma-shri/).

Fr. Lourdu Anandam in The Western Lover of the East says that the use of New Age terminology is to be recognized without ambiguity
in Fr. Bede GriffithsA New Vision of Reality.

All the later writings, to which a bulk of the unpublished materials belong, use New Age terminologies as well as New Age thinking and there is a clarion call of the New Age,
says Fr. Lourdu Anandam of
Fr. Laurence Freeman.

 

Erroneous teachings (a small sampling)

7a. Fr. Joe Pereira says a lot of things and gives statistics that cannot be easily verified in his homilies. After all, who checks it out? One such statement is that necrophilia is “love for to die” (sic) but actually “Necrophilia, also called thanatophilia, is a sexual attraction or sexual act involving corpses“. See

http://kripafoundation.blogspot.in/2014/09/sunday-reflection-by-fr-joe-kripa.html

 

7b. In a video, Fr. Joe Pereira speaks of “oneness with the Originating Principle. You can call it god, here it is their True Self.02:38

Catholics are aware that God has revealed His true nature to man in the Bible.

When you find yourself, you find god. 03:55

(http://kripafoundation.blogspot.in/2015/06/fr-joe-speaking-about-yoga-flim-by-joe.html, http://youtu.be/wL1Jr4ZyECo). That too is pure bunkum. See also point 8b.

 

7c. Fr. Joe Pereira says, I believe in the teachings of the Veda (http://kripafoundation.blogspot.in/2009/11/fr-joe-at-celebrate-bandra-we-can-heal.html), performs poojas (propitiation of pagan deities), uses the Hindu “OM” symbol, celebrates the ritual and superstitious immersion of idols, participates in the worship of Hindu deities such as Ganesha and Durga and in the revelry of Hindu festivals (see my earlier reports for stories and images, especially http://ephesians-511.net/docs/FR_JOE_PEREIRA_YOGA_GURU_CELEBRATES_NAVRATRI_AND_GANESHOTSAV.doc).

This veteran celibate priest in black shirt and white clerical collar makes quite a sight leading an audience in chanting ‘Hari Ommmm’.Source: http://www.kripafoundation.org/images/nov07.pdf

 

After all that, it comes as no surprise that Fr. Joe Pereira describes the Maundy Thursday Eucharistic service as a party (see http://kripafoundation.blogspot.in/2014/04/come-join-my-partysigned-jesus-fr-joe.html). See also pt. 3.

 

8. Examples of Fr. Joe Pereira’s blatant lies and twisted facts taken from a transcript that I made of an audio-taped recording of a talk given with the use of a slide projector by the priest to a Catholic gathering at St. Peter’s Church mini-hall in Bandra, Mumbai, in early 2004

a. In 1500, the big split took place. A monk, Martin Luther… when he split, he hit the Church at its contemplative branch and he said, he disapproved meditation and preferred plain reading of Scripture, Sola Scriptura.

Now, in response… that we may not lose our people and run only after Scripture, to safeguard that, Rome, the Catholic Church, separated the laypeople from the influence of monks who taught meditation.

 

 

 

 

Now isn’t it interesting that in 1550, to undo this horrible mistake by the Church, came a woman with great strength and courage, a Carmelite nun, none other than a mystic, St. Teresa of Avila. She countered Luther’s influence, championed meditation and other mystical practices and permanently established the phenomenon in the Catholic Church, making it a distinctive feature from Protestantism. So if there is any reservation coming to meditation, you know where the roots are. Understand that. And… people who are explaining the [Vatican] Documents [charismatics who are crusading against New Age meditations, yoga etc.] are not telling the people this. Because they themselves are soaked in this prejudice.

What a contrived conclusion! Is any of this TRUE? Luther’s ‘big split’ was in 1517, not 1500. Throughout his talk he holds “charismatics” responsible for the local opposition to his yoga and to his New Age meditation.

One of the two Vatican Documents that he refers to, The Letter to the Bishops of the Catholic Church On Some Aspects of Christian Meditation, note 11 records that “St. Teresa…
perceptively observed that
the separation of the mystery of Christ from Christian meditation is always a form of ‘betrayal’.”
Note 12 reads,
Pope John Paul II has pointed out to the whole Church the example and the doctrine of St. Teresa of Avila who in her life had to reject the temptation of certain methods which proposed a leaving aside of the humanity of Christ in favour of a vague self-immersion in the abyss of divinity.”

Isn’t that really what his yoga is all about? Why has Fr. Joe conveniently ignored several cautions like these when selectively citing from the Document?

 

b. In recent times, a man… was working as a civil engineer in Thailand… there he got in touch with these [Buddhist] practices, he left his profession, became a [Benedictine] priest… he did a lot of work in Eastern disciplines and particularly meditation. But when he joined the monastery, his novice master said, ‘Aha, this is from the East. It is satanic’. So in obedience he said ok but he kept on searching, he went back to the Fathers of the Church… a very special [one] was John Cassian… This study of Cassian impressed the novice master so much… his abbot allowed him to go to Montreal where he started his first monastery of Christian meditation… and it has spread to 60 nations. You can also access it on the Net.

It is very easy to remember: World Community of Christian Meditators.org… You get meditations there. You get books of early Christian mystics and of contemplative prayer. This is something which the Cardinal [His Eminence, Ivan Dias] is very keen on starting all over the diocese, because as he said, there is too much of noise in the Church.

My detailed report, FR JOE PEREIRA-KRIPA FOUNDATION-WORLD COMMUNITY FOR CHRISTIAN MEDITATION, pages 49 to 54 explains why Catholics should NOT visit this dangerous website, practise their meditations, or read their literature.

Fr. Joe Pereira does not reveal such important information as this on the Desert Father: thatthe writings of John Cassian, 365-435 AD… demonstrate the primarily therapeutic concern of this ascetism that sets out
TO HEAL THE DISORDER OF SIN
and [so] to focus the individual on God
“, The New Dictionary of Catholic Spirituality, page 64. Not through yoga meditation or mantra-based “Christian” meditation! Fr. Joe Pereira’s programmes do not touch, EVER, on the disorder of sin or focus the individual on God as we know Him. The yogic meditations of this priest direct the individual not to the God of the Bible but to their own understanding of the absolute(
http://www.kripafoundation.org/images/nov07.pdf) or to rely on (a) higher power, evidently God(UCA News, Mumbai, January 9, 2003).

Yoga helps to put the person in touch with the Antar-Yamin, the Inner Controller, which is the God of one’s understanding or the Higher Power.(http://kripafoundation.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2009-01-25T21%3A44%3A00-08%3A00&max-results=7 November 30, 2008)

I was teaching Iyengar Yoga which was a combination of asanas, pranayama and prayers to the god of your own understanding.” (http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/mumbai/A-Catholic-and-a-lotus-seater-/articleshow/5594846.cms, February 20, 2010)

In an old eight-page KRIPA pamphlet, he recommends the practice of yoga for union with this “higher power”: The ascetic Hindu discipline aims to achieve liberation of self and union with a higher power through intense concentration and deep meditation.

In a six-page February 2002 Health and Nutrition magazine interview, the priest repeats the Hindu yoga philosophy calling God “the Absolute”:

What does yoga mean to you?

In the words of the [Bhagavad] Gita ‘Yoga is harmony…’ … the mind of the yogi is in harmony and finds rest in the inward spirit, to become Yukta
or one unto GodYoga is the mainstay of my life.

What are the yoga techniques that you use?

I
follow the 8-fold path set down in the yoga sutra of Patanjali.

[Fr. Joe Pereira then explains each step, the last beingSamadhana‘ – oneness with the Absolute.]

Yoga, not the Eucharist is the mainstay of this Catholic priest who seeks and teaches unfortunate Catholics to attain union with, not Christ, but the impersonal “Absolute”. See also point 3

 

Finally, to cite him from his blog (kripafoundation.blogspot, January 1, 2008) again As Vedanta teaches us, when we feel this true connection with other human beings,
we know we are all One, and feel closer to Brahman/God.

See also point 7b.

 

 

If Catholics really knew and practised their Faith, the richness of its sacramentals, and the treasures of its Sacraments, they would realize that Fr. Joe neither uses them pastorally nor speaks about sin and repentance for sin in his yoga apostolate.

 

c. What happens in India? The practice of meditation in the Indian Church takes me back to something that happened in 1971… There was a Church in India Seminar. It was in Trivandrum then. And there was a tiny little voice of an old man who stood up there and told the whole assembly, ‘If the Church in India did not respond to the call of contemplation, it might as well fold up as it has folded up in the West.’ Whose voice? Eh? Bede Griffiths“. [Fr. Joe mimicked Bede’s voice when quoting him, so he obviously was on familiar terms with him].

Bede was not old, he was just 63 in 1969! The referred to Church in India Seminar was held in Bangalore in 1969. In 1971 there was a conference in Nagpur, but Fr. Bede did not attend it. Maybe Fr. Joe did. He also reveals his longtime close association with the heretical and New Age Catholic Ashrams Movement.

CATHOLIC ASHRAMS, HERESY, SYNCRETISM AND NEW AGE

http://ephesians-511.net/docs/CATHOLIC_ASHRAMS.doc

 

d. Fr. Joe Pereira lies about anti-New Age author and exorcist Fr. Benedict Heron OSB

In his book he had some beautiful texts praising Eastern disciplines and very especially, yoga. He gave me a copy and I went through it. I couldn’t find that passage… I made a long distance call and I said, ‘…where is that passage?’ He says, ‘Fr Joe if I had… printed that book in a Protestant -dominated London, I would have had no sale for that book. I cleverly dropped that passage at the advice of a Protestant Bishop…’ But, he says, ‘Some passages I have refused to remove and those you’ll find at the end, and when you speak to them give them these cautions’. Mind you, a foremost charismatic in London telling charismatics in the Catholic Church to be careful when they pass judgement on other forms of prayer.

Fr. Pereira then lists ten points, what he terms
dangers and temptations in the Charismatic Renewal
ranging from spiritual pride to false prophecy to an exaggerated emotionalism, which according to him, charismatics are cautioned about, by Fr. Heron.

 

The book that Fr. Joe Pereira refers to is titled I Saw Satan Fall-The Way of Spiritual Warfare, 1997. That alleged section is definitely not in my copy of the book. Fr. Heron does not make a single comment about meditation or contemplation.
Rather, the book is loaded with compliments for the Renewal. And for Protestantism:
The praise of Jesus can sometimes be enough to drive demonic forces from a person or place- this has been the experience of the Charismatic Renewal… As the Irish bishops said in their recent very positive statement about the Charismatic Renewal (1993): In the Charismatic Renewal there is an awareness of the operation of the power of Satan- an awareness which seems to be missing in so much of the life of the rest of the Catholic Church… I pray that Catholics will wake up in the whole area of spiritual warfare, and that we shall work together with Evangelicals and Pentecostals,
pages 61, 103-4, 114.

On the contrary, in his Acknowledgements, Fr. Heron thanks eminent charismatics like Fr. Rufus Pereira, Erika Gibello, Fr. James McManus C.Ss.R, Charles Whitehead, Francis MacNutt etc.

 

Fr. Heron,
in his February 23, 2002 letter from the Monastery of Christ the King, London, to me, says,

Dear
Michael…
Many thanks for your letter… and for your own articles and letters… May God bless you especially in your work in this difficult field
[exposing NEW AGE practices and practitioners in the Church]
. I am happy to pray for you. As an official exorcist, I am worried by the number of Catholics, including priests, who do not even believe in the existence of the devil, let alone understand the deliverance ministry. I had so much of difficulty in finding a publisher for I Saw Satan Fall, despite the fact that my first book Praying for Healing: The Challenge had sold very well. I think that the devil was trying his best to stop the spiritual warfare book appearing. I think that if one gets involved in the field, one will be attacked by the devil in a special way. So I very much hope that you are getting plenty of prayer support for yourself and your ministry and your family.

It is impossible that this priest, an official exorcist, would have endorsed the yoga work of Fr Joe Pereira in any way.

Fr. Joe Pereira, the yogi, unabashedly continues to pile up the lies. I have recorded many, many more of his deceptions in the detailed report the title of which I provided on the previous page.

 

9. Manipulation of Scripture

Fr. Joe Pereira was asked
(
http://www.kripafoundation.org/images/nov07.pdf) to offer some Biblical verses that could help meditators and yoga practitioners
open their bodies to God.”
He answered by raising up some of what he called the Bible’s yogic verses,”
which focus on the paradoxical need to forget your ego to find your true Self. One of them was from Psalm 46: “Be still and know that I am God.”

Fr. Joe talks about Jesus or quotes from the Bible only to draw contrived parallels with Hindu philosophies.

For instance, he uses Psalm 46:10a “Be still and know that I am God” to justify yoga which pursues a monistic union of the self with the Absolute, the Self. The Hindu religion’s equivalent is “Aham Brahmasmi” which means “I am That”, in effect, “I am God”. But that is NOT what the Bible verse means. Psalm 46, verse 10, is God’s response to the praise of Almighty God in the Song of the sons of Korah in verses 1 through 9.

 

Fr. Joe conveniently, like all New Agers, selectively quotes Scripture. He fails to continue with verse 10b, which reads, “I am supreme among the nations, exalted over all the earth!” Will even a deceiver like Fr. Joe dare to suggest that verse 10b may be used as a “yogic verse” to justify a person’s meditation goal?

Psalm 46:10 has absolutely nothing to do with finding one’s “true Self”. But how would the Vancouver Sun reporter (above referred link) or gullible and ignorant Catholics seeking answers and solutions in non-Christian spiritualities know that? Like I said earlier, if they knew their Catholic Faith, they would not be listening to this devilish priest.

 

10. Misrepresentation of Vatican Documents (see also point 8a)

The April 10, 2009, Times of India report “Christ, the supreme yogi”
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/Mumbai/Christ-the-supreme-yogi/articleshow/4382443.cms quotes Fr Joe Pereira as saying,
In the teachings of the Second Vatican Council, it is said that, ‘Christ is now at work in the hearts of men and women through the energy of the Spirit. But the greatest energy and the greatest gift is love’.

The concerned Document is Gaudium et Spes. It reads:

Christ is now at work in the hearts of men through the energy of His Holy Spirit, arousing not only a desire for the age to come, but by that very fact animating, purifying and strengthening those noble longings too by which the human family makes its life more human and strives to render the whole earth submissive to this goal. (# 38)For this reason, love for God and neighbor is the first and greatest commandment. (# 24)

The words of Gaudium et Spes have nothing to do with the context in which Fr Joe Pereira cited them to exploit the use of the word “energy” in reference to the Holy Spirit of God, when in the previous lines of the TOI piece he talks of yoga, prana, chi and ki and “energy going out of Jesus”. He employed the same technique that is used by all promoters of New Age therapies, especially those who propagate alternative medicine, likening the Holy Spirit to an energy that can be manipulated for healing, or the “power that went out of Jesus,” as in the case of the woman who touched His cloak and was healed, to the occult energies that the 2003 Vatican Document on the New Age warns us about. 

Furthermore, Fr. Pereira quotes from 2 disparate paragraphs of Gaudium et Spes and blends them together to serve his occult purposes.

 

11. The Archbishop of Goa Filipe Neri Ferrao calls Fr. Joe Pereira a liar

Goa Plus’, the supplementary to The Times of India and The Economic Times’ Goa edition of 11-17 March 2005 carried a write-up by Ms. Cordelia Francis titled ‘THE LOTUS AND THE CROSS – THE INCULTURATION OF CHRISTIANITY(LOTUS AND THE CROSS-THE HINDUISATION OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IN INDIA). The documentary was screened in Goa at the Xavier Historical and Research Centre at Porvorim, a Jesuit institution. In the Goa Plus article, Fr. Joe Pereira asserts that “The place was packed with people and many were surprised at what they saw. Clergy members and even the Archbishop said that the documentary was done well.

Fr. Joe Pereira reports that the Archbishop of Goa attended the first screening of the film at the Jesuit centre in Porvorim, Goa, and approved of it. A month later there was this second screening in Goa.

On October 31, 2005, the Archbishop of Goa wrote this to me:

Frankly, I have not seen the film and the report that “even the Archbishop said that the documentary was well done” is evidently false.

 

12. Fr. Joe Pereira lies that “all the bishops and heads of churches” have asked me to desist from my “campaign of self-righteous fundamentalistic tirade against the Church”

13. Fr. Joe Pereira/KRIPA/WCCM are so New Age that if I started to chronicle the evidence in even just one of my files [FR JOE PEREIRA-KRIPA FOUNDATION-WORLD COMMUNITY FOR CHRISTIAN MEDITATION], there would be no end

Kripa blends Western techniques with
Indian yoga, Buddhist vipassana meditation, Chinese Tai Chi martial arts and Japanese Shiatsu massage.

In 1981, he and one of the recovering alcoholics he had brought into the parish programme founded the Kripa (“Grace”) Foundation. It focused on serving addicts through a unique recovery programme, combining the “12 steps” of Alcoholics Anonymous with instruction in yoga and meditation taught by Father Joe. Eventually, he added western psychological models, such as dyads and gestalt therapy.(http://www.lifepositive.com/Spirit/Meditation/The_Yogic_Priest102008.asp)

 

14. Fr. Joe Pereira’s blending of the occult with Christianity

The much awaited Yoga workshop of Fr Joe, at YOGA STUDIO SOUTH for Iyengar yoga students was a grand success.

Those students who made it to the oversold event were thrilled and soaked with the wisdom of Fr Joe’s ability to combine asana instructions, with anecdotes about BKS Iyengar, and to hear him connect the relevance of chakras, vayus, the five elements, koshas, yoga philosophy and his Christian Faith to his teaching.(http://kripafoundation.blogspot.in/2010/10/journey-to-centre-by-fr-joe.html October 6, 2010)

 

15. Fr. Joe Pereira cheats people of their properties

Some Catholics from the Mumbai-Vasai region have orally informed me that Fr. Joe Pereira cons people into giving him or his Foundation their properties, or “borrows” them and refuses to return them when the owner wants them back, or sells them earning crores of rupees in the process. But, afraid of his “goondagiri”, clout, connections and money power, they decline to put it down in writing for me. Even those who do write to me about this priest (and they are not anonymous but people known to me) request me not to name them or even quote them in my reports! Such is the fear of this priest that grips Catholics.

I have received letters in which I have been warned that Fr. Joe Pereira is a most dangerous person to confront. I am reproducing just two of them below. The first is from the late anti-New Age crusader
Errol Fernandes of Bandra, Mumbai. I am unable to locate his other letters of the year 2003, detailing how Fr. Joe Pereira dealt with a person who antagonised him. The second letter is from Erika Gibello who is
in an international charismatic deliverance ministry in London and is very familiar with the Bombay archdiocese.

Norman was the chap who took a gang of cronies around Bandra painting anti-Emmanuel Prayer Group calumny on the walls of churches and schools (I sent you a couple of pictures of one such {the walls of St. Aloysius school}). These calumnies were based on the allegations of

*The last 10 pages of the Catholic Ashrams report are on Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation.

 

But there is one case (from one of my old reports) in which I intervened (using an alias) and helped an individual recover his property from Fr. Joe Pereira.

LEGAL DISPUTE OVER MANGALORE PROPERTY BETWEEN KRIPA FOUNDATION/FR. JOE PEREIRA AND MR. RAYMOND LOBO, AGED 66, OF KALINA, SANTACRUZ (E), MUMBAI

Fr. Joe Pereira and Kripa Foundation used Mr. Raymond Lobo’s property at Mooduhithlu, Kadandale, and its agricultural produce for three years from October 3, 2005, free of cost. When Mr. Lobo inspected the property and made local enquiries in October 2007, he found that his property has been damaged and not maintained according to the legal agreements. After fruitless correspondence with Fr. Joe Pereira in which Fr. Joe Pereira used abusive words against Mr. Lobo, Mr. Lobo finally cancelled and revoked the five-year lease agreements on August 14, 2008. Fr. Joe Pereira finally handed back the property to Mr. Lobo on October 17, 2008 “in bad condition”. However, Mr. Raymond Lobo’s Original Power of Attorney and Caretaker Agreement which were cancelled and revoked by him are still not returned to him at the time of writing this report in May 2009.

 

 

A file of the correspondence between Mr. Raymond Lobo and Fr. Joe Pereira, and copies of all documents, are with me. Despite the legal documents signed with Mr. Lobo, Fr. Joe Pereira accused Mr. Lobo of not being the true legal owner of the property when he was asked to vacate the premises.

Looking for help from the Church authorities, Mr. Lobo wrote to Cardinal Oswald Gracias, the Archbishop of Bombay on December 4, 2007, September 19, 2008, and December 6, 2008 by Registered Letter A.D., quoting all the abusive language used by Fr. Joe Pereira in his email letters, and enclosing copies of letters and relevant documents. The Registered Letter of September 19 was acknowledged by Fr. Savio Fernandes, the Chancellor of Bombay archdiocese, in a letter dated September 24, saying that the Cardinal was away for six weeks and would be handed the letter on his return.

 

Excerpts from some of Fr. Joe Pereira’s email letters to Mr. Raymond Lobo [spellings and capital letters emphases all as in the originals written by Fr. Joe Pereira]:

November 9, 2007:

Dear Raymond,

I am shocked by your analysis of our work. Some kind of Devil seems to be acting on you. If you want to take back your offering from God’s people, you will in the words of Deuteronmy incur a CURSE. So think before you get us out of your place.

I do not like God’s people calling themselves charismatic and maintaining double standards. You certainly crossed your boundaries when you suggest as to how we must conduct our programme spiritually. Be bold and tell Satan to Keep off. Love, Fr>Joe

March 16, 2008:

Dear Raymond,

Now God has revealed your black heart. I once again repeat, better repent and acknowledge God’s people and his work. Or you will take upon you the CURSES of God’s loved ones.

As and when I am ready to hear your confession of deception and forgive you and your family will also settle this matter amicably. This is the best season for you to get the grace of conversion.

STOP HIDING BEHIND THE CHARISMATIC FAÇADE. fR.jOE

August 25, 2008:

Dear Raymond,

God has brought us into your life to make you aware of your evil intentions. Your legal documents are fraud. Fr. Joe

September 7, 2008:

Dear Linus and Paul,

Please settle this man as I have advised you before. Do not spare this liar… As a charismatic he is following the Devil… Settle him in such a way that he stops sending me these emails. If I act he will not know where to run. Fr>Joe

September 12, 2008:

Will someone tell this man Raymond that he is dealing with a world renowned Charitable Trust. To accuse Kripa of not carrying out charitable work amounts to blasphemy. Paul and Martyres, please do the needful.

I think Raymond needs either a psychiatrist or a good legal bamboo for cheating his family and dragging Kripa into his most sinful and selfish plans… Such selfrighteos Self opinionated Religious Freaks must not be let free… Both God and Society will soon punish this man. The Gospel says that such people who scandalize innocent persons (like our poor patients) must have the millstone round their necks and thrown into the sea. Hyppocrit that he is, hs is passing judgements on our work which is like that of Mother Teresa. Fr. Joe

October 23, 2008:

After getting back your property please get yourself EXORCISED. You were a typical Devil in Charismatic Appearance!
Fr. Joe

 

Mr. Raymond Lobo wrote to the Cardinal on December 6, 2008, “Being an anointed priest, Fr. Joe has forgotten his priesthood. His email contents clearly show that he is dead against the Charismatic Renewal movement. I have tolerated his humiliations and attacks on my personality, my faith, and devotion in worshiping my Lord in the charismatic way. There is no stop or control on him inspite of bringing to the notice and attention of the Church authorities as no action has been taken against him. I seek justice, peace and respect. Sd/-Raymond Lobo.

 

MY COMMENTS:

When examining the documentation, I found that all Raymond Lobo’s letters [some of three pages and one of fourteen] to Fr. Joe were perfectly civil and cordial. In fact, Lobo would appeal often to his devout Catholic faith and charismatic spirituality, quoting Scripture passages, and then he would state the reasons that he wanted his property back.

On the other hand, the abusive responses from Fr. Joe Pereira were crude, insulting and ungrateful and most unbecoming of a priest. I do not need to comment on them more, except to point out Fr. Joe Pereira’s strong antipathy towards “charismatics” which I noted several times in the report FR JOE PEREIRA-KRIPA FOUNDATION-WORLD COMMUNITY FOR CHRISTIAN MEDITATION [see pages 4-12].

In 2003, he received the International Yoga Journal Karmayogi of the Year Award!

He received in 2009 the Padma Shri award from the Government of India and constantly boasts of it.

After August 2008, Fr. Joe even stopped addressing his benefactor by name when writing to him.

 

Using an assumed name, I then arranged for this letter to be sent to Fr. Joe Pereira:

Praise the Lord! Thanks very much, Linus and Fr. Joe. I have advised Mr. Raymond Lobo to collect the original documents himself from the Kripa centre. I am writing on behalf of my husband who is preparing a detailed report on Kripa Foundation. During our research we came upon information that properties in Mangalore and in Goa were being donated to Kripa Foundation.

Mr. Lobo has given us copies of many abusive email letters written and signed by Fr. Joe when Mr. Lobo simply pointed out as the legal owner that his property leased to Kripa was not being managed to his satisfaction, and requested it back from you, well within his legal rights.

Considering that you are not only a Catholic priest but also a yoga master, it appears from the correspondence that you have shown little peaceful tolerance to Mr. Lobo, who was your benefactor, especially by repeatedly and unnecessarily denigrating his charismatic spirituality and calling him degrading names.

Your being awarded the Padma Shri by the Government of India certainly does not mean that you or your Foundation are favoured by God. It is simply a human recognition. The world honours its own. One would get an award from the Government even for promoting astrology, and in your case, yoga. Dear Fr. Joe, it is more important that one’s name is written in the Book of Life.

NO ONE INFORMED ME by email/letter or by phone call to collect my Original Power of Attorney and Caretaker Agreement, nor they had shown any courtesy in delivering my document as a gratitude for using my property for 3 years FREE.

According to my given appointment to Mr. Paul D’Souza, Manager and Incharge of KRIPA Centre in Mangalore, he never returned to me my documents as requested in all my correspondence to Fr. Joe, Mr. Linus Pinto. They were supposed to return them during our two meetings at my property site while handovering the property duly signing handover note/document by Mr. Paul D’ Souza. He said that the documents were in Bombay with Mr. Linus, Kripa Office.

They never showed moral courtsey of returning the document till now inspite of my repeated request personally and thru various emails till October 2008.

KRIPA used my property FREE OF CHARGE FOR THREE YEARS with all its existing facility and agricultural yeild/produce consumed and sold and even without carrying out agreed charitable activites as per our Caretaker agreement and various emails. Thus my objective of giving them to use free of charge to carryout agreed charity activities was missused. Even greenery, plants/trees were damaged.

In return Fr. Joe never shown any gratitude and a respect to the Donor and corresponded with me in ABUSIVE language with CURSE. I am sure his words are not matching his priesthood status. It clearly reflects on him and shows how he is preaching, being a Catholic Priest.

Oswald Cardinal Gracias never bothered to look into matters. My heart is broken and our Lord has only given me strength to overcome this situation.

Even now, Fr. Joe used words as THE GHOST OF THIS SICKMAN RAYMOND IS STILL HANGING OVER US…

GOD IS WATCHING ALL THINGS AND HE WILL SOON DECIDE as nothing can be hidden from him as he is our creator and Master. With sincere thanks and regards, Raymond Lobo

Dear Raymond, 

It was a pleasure talking to you this morning. It is sure sad to see a Catholic priest running a mafia in the Church, much supported by the higher ups in the Archdiocese of Mumbai and the Vatican. I will surely explore the good advice you have given me post discussion internally with my family members. 

However I truly believe in the words the Holy Father shared in his sermon last on the feast of St. Peter and Paul in Rome – “The Church is not a community of the perfect, but a community of sinners, obliged to recognize their need for God’s love, their need to be purified through the Cross of Jesus Christ”.

At the end of the day Raymond, it is our faith that keeps us close to God and it is between him and us and not our priests that make us good human beings in the eyes of God.

Aside to Brother Michael: I will call you one of these days and share with you my experiences (slightly complex). Do you have a mobile number that I can call you on directly?

Prayerful good wishes to self and all at home.

Affectionate Regards, Neil Dias

 

All of the letters below related to Fr. Joe Pereira/KRIPA Foundation are edited by me for clarity. Neil Dias is the son of the late Dr. Olaf Dias who was the brother of Cardinal Ivan Dias. Neil Dias has been writing to me and to Cardinal Dias and the hierarchy of the Bombay Archdiocese on the issue of Fr. Joe Pereira and his NGO KRIPA’s criminal activities for more than 5 years, with copies to many others, but has been requesting all not to go public (“confidential”, “not for circulation”) with them yet. However, I think it is now high time that the details are published on our web site. The “Church NGO” constantly referred to below is KRIPA Foundation.

Dear Uncle Ivan,

Further to my previous email to you last when I was in Goa, as promised am sending you the recordings / snaps of the mafia run by Kripa Foundation and supported by Uncle Dick. Today Charles Manor is not only the laughing stock in Bandra as the four brothers are not together but has also become the haven for housing drug addicts / alcoholics, something against the wish of why Nana built this house. It is a shame.

In the snaps, you will see Fr. Joe Pereira, Uncle Dick & Fiona along with the rehabs damaging both the gates. I have the video as well but due to space constraint via email, I am not attaching that. The St. Pauls fathers / neighbors as well were shocked to see Fr. Joe Pereira and his drug addicts start damaging our property.

In the video (use Windows Media Player) you will see the Kripa drug addicts led by Kripa Counselor – Asit Tambe.  He was a recovering alcoholic. The same drug addicts are being housed in your flat. They are the same drug addicts who took your blessings and went on their knees at the side of our family grave. One name Stephen Monteiro and pimp of Fr. Joe Pereira as well who constantly puts fear into Vivek and Vadim.

Today Catholics are talking in Bandra that the Church wants support against the demolition of crosses in our city by the BMC. What happens when Catholic priests of the church are damaging their own catholic community property? Why should they be supported?

Fr. Joe P has now leased your flat to Kabir, who runs a small time studio & a devotee of Yoga instructor Iyengar. Your flat is converted to a studio with dark curtains, speakers, lighting etc. This is all against what you and other three brothers have agreed and against Nana’s wish. Needless to say but Uncle Dick is dumb in these sort of activities. He will face a lot of issues eventually due to his pride and this time there is no Olaf, no Owen to help him.

So when you questioned Fr. Joe Pereira who damaged the gate and Uncle Dick supported that Fr. Joe Pereira did not break the gate – here is the truth in front of you. Uncle why do you allow people to make a sucker out of you? You are spiritually very strong but humanly extremely weak and that is why these people are taking advantage of you.

 

 

It is very shameful to see Uncle Dick damage his own mothers property and also Joe Pereira, who seems to be a priest, do such activities. Today Uncle Dick puts flowers on his parent’s grave. A hypocrite I must say. When he condoled with Vadim he did not know what to say, as he never spent time or visited uncle Ralph or knew what qualities he had.

He has set the ball rolling with your full support to dislodge Uncle Ralph and is family just to get your flat back. His desperation to forcefully gain entry into your flat along with Fiona on 16th June 2010 at 11.30 PM in the night is very evident. The way Vadim was treated later by him and Fr. Joe Pereira is known to us but all twisted stories are being told to you to bias your mind. What is done is unpardonable in the eyes of God and they will pay a heavy price for it.

Uncle I also questioned you on who told you that Vadim is renting out his flat to me. You had no answer to that and just waved your head. You are getting carried away with all the lies being told to you by Uncle Dick and Fr. Joe Pereira.

If you see the death certificate of Uncle Ralph, you will see that the temporary and permanent address of Uncle Ralph as Kripa Foundation Vasai and not Charles Manor. Also his age is incorrectly mentioned. This is typical of Fr. Joe Pereira and your priest whom you seem to know well.

God bless you! Your loving nephew,

Neil

What happens to a Catholic family who were victims of the diabolic Acts of a Curial Cardinal, Soldier & Church NGO? Curial Cardinal was misled badly. They were drugged, kept in wrongful confinement & prevented the right to human life in this Church NGO. This in reality accounts to Murder as per the Criminal Penal Code!!! The father dies within a year due to poor treatment and medication. His body was NOT brought home for prayers but was changed outside Mt. Carmel’s Church doors & mass concelebrated by Card. Oswald Gracias.

There were goondaism acts at midnight / forgery / manipulations / unlawful assemblies by drug addicts / destruction of private property / fraudulent documents / fraud medical papers; all done by the Church NGO with support of a Knight / Curial Cardinal / Soldier (his daughter too), in the background. All this known to our dear Cardinal but he did nothing as usual.

After the family members were removed from this Church NGO (post the Curial Cardinal roggering this NGO priest very badly), the doctor and medicines were changed. Today they are living a healthy and normal life but the ones involved / connected in the diabolic acts are suffering badly.

How will the family members celebrate Christmas without their father?

How will the Church / Cardinal Oswald Gracias, compensate the right to Human life? Why is this Church NGO not shut down? Most priests are aware but scared to approach the Cardinal lest they be transferred to a God-forsaken place.

These are criminal Acts done by your Priest under your very jurisdiction.

As you are the Managing Trustee of this Church NGO, kindly share on this very email the registered & notarized Power of Attorney given to this Church NGO to destroy private property that was in effect of 16th June 2010 at 11:45 PM, with drug addicts.

What action has been taken as per Canon law on this priest when this was shared with you four years ago? How can such a Church NGO continue doing evil?

Nuncio: Your Grace, I would like to know what you are doing in Delhi and your role as Nuncio to India. Cardinal Ivan Dias used to do work hard & was strict in Church matters. Eight Church property scams and you are quiet. Sad!!!

Dear Rev. Cardinal Oswald Gracias,

All emails letters sent to you with a copy to the Laity are sent in good faith and public interest only.

The digital photographs of goondagiri, […] highlighting the Church property scams across Mumbai – are not fabricated nor forged nor falsified but is the Gospel truth. Others too have shared emails about this very same NGO.

It is shameful that you are not acting on the same due to reasons known best to you. You should know well by now, what action needs to be initiated as per Canon Law. Under separate cover email, you have been shared the goondaism acts done again by this Church NGO drug addicts (third party/outsiders) on 22nd July 2010. […] You are patron this Church NGO!!! A mafia is being run under your administration (& previous) which needs to be eradicated once and for all for the betterment of the Catholic Church.

Subject: Re: FW: THE YOGA PRIEST NEEDS TO BE TRANSFERED IMMEIDIATELY AS PER THE POPE?

I was told by a senior bishop & many priests in Mumbai, India, that Yoga ‘mixed’ with Religion is against the Catholic faith.

This is well known & told to our dear Cardinal as well by Michael Prabhu (apologist) multiple times. It is quite a decent blog (https://ephesians511blog.com/) that highlights all the errors of the Indian Catholic Church. It is quite a read and most of the times, there is no reply from the hierarchy for reasons best known to them.

Until a few years ago, I wasn’t aware that every step in Yoga is linked to something in Hinduism.

Due to my curiosity to know the truth, I reached out to the previous Cardinal and the current one with a link that is there on the Vatican Website. As usual, I did NOT get a reply. One for example is http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/cfaith/documents/rc_con_cfaith_doc_19891015_meditazione-cristiana_en.html.

The Church Documents have warned the Catholic faithful against the dangers of Tai chi, Yoga, Zen etc.

Today there are many hardcore yogic sadhus in the guise of Catholic priests/Church NGO and running Ashrams in the Archdiocese of Mumbai. I cannot comment on the income (money-making) being generated in such Ashrams as I am not privy to the same. Refer Michael Prabhu’s blog and you will get the answers of such Ashrams & priests.

I am not surprised such New Age techniques are being institutionalized in the Roman Catholic Church at Mumbai. Sad to see the faith being diluted and Hinduised.

I hope Cardinal Oswald Gracias, the Archbishop of Mumbai, takes a note of this and bans all yoga courses.

Merely because someone is your friend or someone gives you money or because someone puts you on their trust as a trustee is no excuse for turning a blind eye.

Your Lordship BP Agnelo Gracias,

I am attaching for your reference a financial fraud done by my Army uncle. As an example, Cardinal Ivan’s 25% share of property sold at underpriced rates and a legal agreement also registered at the Sub Registrar by my Army uncle. Fabrication attracts stern clauses of the Indian Penal code.

Tell me your Lordship – In Bandra West, a 4BHK flat in a Bungalow, residual land, TDR and Fungi FSI sold with a take home of 2 crore 60 lacs. Today a 1BHK costs 3.5 crore in the same location and lesser area old flat).

Poor Cardinal Ivan has no clue how he has been cheated and is not applying his mind to realize how he is being cheated due to his precarious health. I personally informed him as well.

My grandmother (whom you met) had her blood and sweat to build this lovely Catholic family home. Now we have Punjabis staying with us.

There are also other two Evils that contribute to this Evil deed – a Knight and member of your ‘Take Charge’. His Eminence is aware.

The diabolic plan was to remove my late uncle from the flat of Card. Ivan with the help of the Church NGO and then dispose off 50% of the family property secretly as there was no love for what Mother has built. Money, Power & Position has wiped the ethical fabric of few of our family members.

Cardinal Ivan Dias preemptive clause of Sale in a doctored letter was suppressed by my Army uncle.

So who has cheated Cardinal Ivan Dias, BP Agnelo? Dr. Olaf or Mr. Francis Dias?

I am copying my uncle priest as well so that the prayer group member can read out this email to him. Pray for the Cardinal.

Affectionate regards,

Your Lordship Bishop Agnelo Gracias,

Attached below is the very same email sent to the Curial Cardinal of the goondaism acts (digital photographs) by your Church NGO priest at midnight. A video clip of Goondagiri is also attached.

It also has the office assistant – Stephen Monteiro (alcoholic addict) of the Church NGO breaking locks of private property along with the other addicts.

The ‘Take Charge’ cum Sex Instructor by profession is also party to the crime along with her father.

If I share with you the doctored letter of the Curial Cardinal, you will vomit, Your Lordship. That’s the very same words, the Curial Cardinal used when he came to pay a condolence – QUOTE that If Ralph was brought home, he would vomit. UNQUOTE

On 24th January 2015, you stated that the Church NGO priest was asked to look after the Curial Cardinal flat as there was a false allegation that ‘we are trying to grab his flat’. WITH NO PROOF BUT JUST FALSE STATEMENTS (typical of this Sadhu). Financial fraud of Francis Dias has been shared with you already.

On 14th May’15, your stance changed that the Church NGO priest does NOT have the nine points asked. So what was his role and what was he doing then at 12 midnight damaging private property?

How much was he paid […] for his Mafia activities? We need statement of Accounts.

Is anti-Church doctrine – Yoga allowed in exchange of personal demonic favours?

The Church NGO priest (Graviora Delicta) was 1) party to the house breaking at midnight with his addicts & armed weapons & later 2) Illegally administered Shock treatment to the Curial Cardinals family members without a legal court decree 3) forged a WILL of my late uncle Ralph Dias with falsified content / letter to Olaf Dias/myself through the Office Assistant. 4) Sublet the Curial Cardinals flat to third parties against his wishes & doctored letter. 5) drugged my Aunt Lourdes & Cousin Vanessa and my late Uncle Ralph who was perfectly fit and fine. 6) Showed my late uncle Ralph as a psychiatric disorder case on his medical death certificate to which Card. Ivan Dias hammered badly your Church NGO priest.

PURE DOCUMENTARY EVIDENCE OF THE ABOVE SIX POINTS HAVE BEEN SHARED WITH YOUR LORDSHIP & ACTION PENDING WITH HIS EMINENCE CARDINAL OSWALD GRACIAS FOR GRAVIORA DELICTA.

 

 

As I stated always, the diabolic plan was to deracinate my late Uncle and his family from the Curial Cardinal flat with the Mafia support of the Church NGO. My own Army uncle (main executor of the demonic plan) has made the Curial Cardinal (suffers a mental block) sign so many fraudulent documents & deeds which he could not even read. He trusted him but was stabbed in the back!!

The Curial Cardinal denied Christ in his life 122 times when I wrote 122 times to him to send his family members home from the Church NGO. Our dear Lord has his ways of Judgement on Earth itself.

We the Laity demand that the Church NGO priest be excommunicated at the earliest as per Graviora Delicta/Canon Law and stripped off the title of ‘Padma Shri’ as such Satanic acts done are not in harmony with the said humanitarian title.

Your Lordship Bishop Agnelo Gracias,

Attached is the forged letter of the Office Assistant of the Church NGO & was party to the house breaking at 12 midnight on private property. He was also making my aunt sign blind cheques (5K monthly withdrawals) when they were presumably under rehabilitation and Cardinal Ivan Dias sending money from the IORW (Rome) for their treatment. 

Is the Padma Shri title justifiable in the eyes of God, your Lordship?

You need a complete cleanup of the mess that exists in this Church NGO.

There is an ancestral house in Bandra belonging to four brothers; each of the brothers has a 2/3 bedroom flat in the ancestral house. The gate to the building was always open. A lock was put by someone, which blocked access to the building. One of the brothers, a retired Lieutenant Colonel of the Army, who owns one of the flats got the lock broken. He was present on the occasion. This is surely a family matter which does not involve the Church. One of the brothers is a member of the hierarchy and asked a priest to help. Even if a priest is asked to help and he was present when the lock was broken, it remains a family matter and should be resolved by the family members.

Your Eminence dear Cardinal Oswald Gracias,

My cousin wrote to you multiple times begging you to send his family members home from the Church NGO but you refused to even reply to him. I too have written to you multiple times but you refused to reply except once through Fr. Neil Santos. The doors of the Archdiocese of Mumbai were always closed
and the keys kept with H.E. Cardinal Ivan Dias (Emeritus) in Rome, Italy.

Kindly ask your very own Auxiliary bishop of the discussion and email letter he sent me with respect to the transfer of the Church NGO priest which hasn’t happened since the last 35 years & till date.

With you knowing very well the unpardonable sins & crimes committed by this very same Church NGO priest & that amounts to Graviora Delicta; why are you protecting such terrorists of the Roman Catholic Church.

You also published a bogus Press Release on the Archdiocesan website when all documentary evidence has been shared with you & hiding the gospel truth.

IF IT IS A FAMILY MATTER, KINDLY LET ME KNOW THEN:

1.    Is this the modus operandi of this Church NGO priest to break locks of a private property at midnight? Is this part of training at St. Pius Seminary?

2.    Digital photographs have been shared with you on 16th June’10 at 11:45PM & 22nd July’10. Kindly share the written Police Permission to damage private property with armed weapons & registered POA of Cardinal Ivan Dias to your Church NGO priest. This will validate your Press Statement if Card. Ivan has asked to help. I am sure your Church NGO priest was joint ventured & helping in the unlawful assemblies at midnight.  

3.    CCTV video has been shared with you of 22nd July’10, kindly share the Police permission given to damage private property with armed weapons without any POA or Police Constable on site or my Army uncle?

4.    Kindly share the registered third party leave and license agreement given to the Church NGO (under the service of Card Ivan Dias) from 16th June’10 till AY 2013.

5.    Kindly share the Court decree that a lock put was illegal. Due process of Law was to be followed. Do you know how desperate the criminals were that night to house break into Card Ivan Dias flat!! They were on a cocaine high!

 

 

6.    Why were the family members of the Curial Cardinal (in occupation of Card. Ivan flat since inception) NOT sent home in spite of repeated requests to you in writing by their next of Kin? Were you given orders from Rome not to send them home?

7.    Kindly share the letters of Mr. Vadim Dias to you begging to send his family members home for the Examiner to publish & show the doors open for dialog.

8.    Kindly hand over a xerox of the medical files attested by the Church NGO of the family members of the Curial Cardinal. It is being denied to be shared as they were just drugged & made zombies in your Church NGO. There was also an attempt to sign some documents with my aunt which she flatly refused.

9.    Why did Card. Ivan Dias hammer badly your Church NGO priest when he wasn’t sending my aunt and cousin home citing all frivolous reasons (this is after the diabolic plan was executed by his elder brother)?

10. Curial Cardinals brother – Mr. Ralph J. Dias (late) was medically discharged fit and fine at Holy Spirit Hospital Andheri before being kept under wrongful confinement? Your Church NGO priest lied that he had strokes, bed ridden etc. when the Holy Spirit medical discharge report states his limbs and body were perfectly normal. We have seen him fit and fine except his sugar was dropping.

11. Your Church NGO priest made a fraudulent WILL of late Mr. Ralph Dias with your Church NGO priest (one week after taken hostage in the NGO), his office assistant, my Army uncle and his son in law as Executors and on his medical death certificate shown as a ‘psychiatric disorder’ case.

What canonical action have you taken on the Church NGO priest and the doctor for this falsified medical evidence? My cousin Vadim Dias even saw the witnesses forge my late uncle’s signature in the presence of my Army uncle but was then scared to open his mouth. Card Ivan Dias is well aware of this as well.

12. How many properties of the Laity have been willed to a priest and not the Church?

13. What action have you taken on the Church NGO priest for administering Electric shock treatment on the family members of the Curial Cardinal without a Court Decree? Why is the centre not shut down as this is highly illegal & against the Indian law?

14. Where is the registered Power of Attorney of the Curial Cardinal for the Goondagiri committed on 16th June’10 and 22nd July’10 assuming Card Ivan has asked the Church NGO priest to help?

Your Church NGO priest through BP Agnelo says he does not have it & expects us to believe his lies.

15. The Church NGO is assumed to be an ‘NGO’. Why are people being charged monthly and how are the grants/donations being utilized?

I requested statement of accounts (last six years) but it is ignored till date by your Auxiliary Bishop for reasons best known to him.

16. How many cases do we have in the Archdiocese of Mumbai where inmate housed in similar centres are used by priests for diabolic/criminal activities?

17. If you claim that it is a family issue, why did your Church NGO priest step into a family matter that should have been resolved internally?

How much Vatican funds was he paid apart from running Yoga in the Roman Catholic Church? Was it in Euros or Indian Rupees?

18. Where are the third party lease agreements made to Shri Kabir Mohanty (Iyengar yoga group) and Shrimati Hannah Sorenson (through broker) when Card. Ivan has clearly stated NO third party to be inducted into his flat? This has been done by your Church NGO priest only in collusion with my Army uncle.

19. Kindly disclose the commercial electricity bills paid monthly by the Church NGO for the last two and a half years.

20. Kindly share the BMC written permission to use a Booster pump to cater to illegal occupants on the ground floor (Card Ivan’s flat).

21. Publish in the Examiner the email letter of your Auxiliary Bishop Agnelo Gracias stating that he was to transfer the Church NGO priest & why hasn’t he done it till date.

Why is this side of the story not published in the Archdiocesan Website, Your Eminence!! You only are increasing the ‘wrinkles’ on the face of Christ day by day.

Registered legal Substituted Power of Attorney dated 16th June 2010 at 11:45 PM – to indicate that the Curial Cardinal has asked him to intervene & clarify H.E. Cardinal Oswald Gracias falsified press release. 

Registered legal Substituted Power of Attorney dated 22nd July 2010 to damage private property with armed weapons & addicts – to indicate that the Curial Cardinal has asked him to intervene & clarify H.E. Cardinal Oswald Gracias falsified Press Release. 

Registered letters from Mr. Vadim Dias to H.E. Cardinal Oswald Gracias begging to send his family members home & what was the response of H.E. Cardinal Oswald Gracias gave him till date. We could have saved a life, Your Eminence.

True copy of the legal Court decree to administer Electric shock treatment to L. Dias and V. Dias. The medical files in Xerox have NOT been given when asked.

Registered sublet third party agreement to Shri. Kabir Mohanty (part of the Iyengar Yoga group).

FYI – preventing a crime & putting a lock to prevent a crime in good faith/intentions does not amount to wrongful restraint nor is a crime as per the Indian Penal Code. Kindly check up with your legal cell.

Two criminal Lawyers and one senior Civil Lawyer have affirmed MURDER as per the Criminal Penal Code & Indian Penal Code in the presence of BP Agnelo Gracias. KINDLY CHECK UP WITH ANY CRIMINAL LAWYER WITHIN INDIA.

You need to publish the full story
to the Laity of Mumbai even if it involves Card. Ivan Dias in the Graviora Delicta (after you investigate with facts). Escalate to his Holiness Pope Francis if need.

To me the REAL crooks are your Church NGO priest and my Army uncle (& your Knight) taking undue advantage of Card Ivan Dias having serious health complications and not being in India.

Assured prayers,

Neil C. Dias

Your Eminence Cardinal Oswald Gracias,

DO YOU RESPECT THE SANCTITY OF HUMAN LIFE OR DO YOU RESPECT ILL GOTTEN MONEY FROM A YOGIC TANTRIC! – TO FILL YOUR BALANCE SHEET.

SEE TODAYS TOI’S AND HOW THE MUSLIMS HAS DENOUNCED THE PRACTICE OF YOGA AS IT IS AGAINST THEIR RELIGION.

 

 

THIS IS MY LAST HUMBLE APPEAL TO YOU TO PUBLISH THE FULL STORY TO THE LAITY OF MUMBAI POST WHICH IT WILL BE EXPOSED. 

THE RISK AND CONSEQUENCES ARE SOLELY AT YOUR END FOR SUPPORTING THE MAFIA (TERRORIST) IN THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH AS BISHOP OF MUMBAI.

Subject: Fwd: FINANCIAL LOSS TO ARCHDIOCESE DUE TO ERROR OF ARCHDIOCESAN FIANANCE COMMITTEE?

Your Eminence dear Cardinal Oswald Gracias,

I have shared with you and His Lordship BP Agnelo Gracias, the bogus Conveyance Agreement(s) (under-priced) made and for which the legal angle is common and a conflict of interest in the Archdiocese of Mumbai – your Knight.

While you have published as well a bogus Press Statement on your Archdiocese website of the “lock breaking Priest“, fact of the matter remains that the Church is suppressing the gospel truth.

Truth about unlawful assemblies, Goondagiri, fraud documents & deeds made, forgery, manipulation of Medical records, drugging of innocent Catholics & preventing them the right to enjoy human life & wrongful Confinement of a family – DONE BY YOUR PRIEST AND KNIGHT IN THE BACKGROUND ALONG WITH MY ARMY UNCLE.

The next day after the Goondagiri done on 16th June 2010, the Knight called up Retired ACP Prakash George to hoodwink him and use his political influence for the crimes committed by your Priest & addicts. Such advocates, get Knighthood!!

There is NO family matter but Acts of Diabolism which you and the Knight are trying to cover up. On Judgement day, this will not help when the full truth will be in front of your eyes in front of our dear Lord.

All I seek is justice for a Catholic family who father had to end his life (though being perfectly OK) and family members drugged to such an extent to nearly ruin their normal life.

Bishop Agnelo Gracias: 4 months have passed since your email letter of Jan 2015 and no action taken as yet as committed.

Neil C. Dias

Dear Neil,
1. Where in Bandra is this house located?

2. Which is this family of four brothers?
3. Which of the brothers is “a member of the hierarchy”?
4. Who was the priest? Was it Fr. Joe Pereira?
