May we strive to liberate the slaves of our times especially the bonded labour and others who are victims of caste-based slavery in different regions of India that Our Lady of Vallarpadam may give us enough courage and conviction to do this work with dedication like Father Stan Swamy and others like him. Lord Jesus listen to our prayer through the intercession of Our Lady of Ransom at Vallarpadam. Amen
The Gospels do not hesitate to put us followers of Jesus in a bad light. We, represented by the disciples, can be so dense that we miss something that evil demons know and that even a blind man can see. That is, that Jesus is the presence of the Reign of God among us.
