Please remember in prayer the soul of Fr. Thomas, a 38 year old Carmelite priest, who gave his life serving the poor and the marginalized; he was murdered Saturday, August 16th and appeared to suffer terrible torture. Also remember his family; especially pray for those who murdered him and all those people who love Christ and await a priest under very dangerous conditions in India.

I just read the entire story.
His death was horrible.
Satan is a liar !
What is this world coming to. :frowning:

“My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I Love Thee, and I ask forgiveness for those who do not believe, nor adore, nor hope, nor Love thee. Amen”

Father behold your son who suffered torture and murder like Your beloved Son Jesus. I ask Your most powerful graces to be present in his times of suffering and that You grant all his prayers for his torturers and murderers, and for all those he intercedes for. Let his faithfulness be a great witness to all. Please give courage and grace to his people and protect all Catholics and Christians in difficult cultural and religious regions.

I ask in Jesus’ name

I will say a complete Rosary for the soul of Father Thomas who was so brutally murdered in India.

“My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I Love You. I beg pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope, and do not Love You. Amen”

Fr Thomas will be in my prayers.
May God have mercy on his soul.
***This touches my heart especially because I am a Secular Order Carmelite; ***
***suffering for the faith is always heartwrenching to hear of! :frowning: ***
He will have a special place in our beloved Communion of Saints!

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us, and increase Your mercy in us, so that in difficult moments we might not despair, nor become despondent, but with great confidence, submit ourselves to Your Holy Will, which is Love and Mercy itself. Amen

Heavenly Father, as time is no barrier to You, I ask that Your Spirit of love and courage fills and surrounds Fr Thomas in his terrible, lonely, frightening ordeal. Please Jesus let Your presence be real and tangible to him as he goes through physical and mental agony like Your own on Your last terrible day. Let thoughts of love and forgiveness fill his mind and heart. Comfort him Jesus. Let the angels surround and comfort him. Give him overflowing grace to fix his whole heart and soul upon You and for the sake of souls. About him I sing the fourth song of the Suffering Servant. (Isaiah 53)

For this Your Carmelite priest and martyr I say “My God I love You above all, and others as You love them. I give my life for their souls, and for the souls of Indians. I forgive my torturers. I love You, Jesus. I love You Jesus. I love You, Jesus.” Mary mother of Carmel, pray for me now, and as I die, Amen "

My heart breaks as I read the whole story…

Trishie - what a sweet prayer, I stand in complete agreement with you for this beautiful man of God…

Tonight in Adoration, I will pray for him and for all the priests who self-lessly give their lives to us, the flock of the Lord…

God bless,
Holly

A message to all posters. I wanted you to know that I sent an email to EWTN asking that the Friars pray for this martyred Priest during the Daily Mass.

EWTN has graciously responded by saying that my email has been forwarded to the Friars and also that the nuns have been praying in front of the Blessed Sacrament 24 hours a day, and will continue to pray for this martyred Priest, for the next 30 days.

Thanks be to God!!!
