“Go Into all the
world and preach the Gospel to the whole
Usually people ask what my state
or my country has done to me and my family? But
as Christians, we have to ask ourselves, what we
have done or being done for our state and
country rather the nation does something to
Christianity in India has a long
tradition of more than 2000 years, but our
percentage is just 2% even in 21st
century. Christ is not yet known to crores and
crores of people in India. Is it not our
responsibility to give Jesus to those people?
Are we waiting for our clergy and religious
groups to do this duty? Jesus was first
proclaimed India by his Apostle St. Thomas in AD
52 and St. Francis Xavier, known as the second
Christ, 500 years back. A lot of foreign
Missionaries rallied after St. Francis.
Many of them were killed for Christianity in
India and our faith is built up on their
martyrdom. But what I and you have done
personally for the Word of God to our nation?
If we have an excuse answer……..?
It is the need of the hour that
we unite and pray for a better India with
Blessed Virgin Mary by reciting “One
Rosary every day for India”.
Through “Intercession for India
we, every Christian of India, make a chain of
Rosary every day for our 29 States and 6 Union
Territories with a mission of proclaiming Jesus
Christ to each and every person of India.
“Intercession for India” (IFI) is
a Prayer Ministry, started by 10 young people in
the Arch Diocese of Thrissur, Kerala. In the
Catholic Church history we have seen that
miracles have happened through Rosary prayers.
Our Mission is to pray through Rosary for a
mission of every Indian to know and experience
Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the Savior of
mankind. Intercession for India is for all
Indians. It is started at Thrissur with the
blessing of Rt.Rev.Dr.Raphel Thattil the
Auxillary Bishop of Arch Diocese of Thrissur.
Our spiritual fathers are Rev.Fr.Jose Mundadan (OFM
cap) Ex.Director of Sinai Retreat Centre
Palakkad and Rev.Fr. Biju Panengadan Ex.
Director of Charismatic Movement Arch Diocese of
Thrissur. At present IFI has got 13000 members
who recite One Rosary every day for India at
their own home or working place.
Let us pray together for evolving
India to Lord Jesus Christ.
