These days, my Dear Friends, have been concentrating on writing posts for my Facebook page: For Catholics, accessed through @swamiyesudas.
It has been both my hope and Firm belief that people, Actively taking part in the affairs of life, can Effect Powerful changes.
It is the Apathy and Lethargy of mankind that prevents this action, and results in the proliferation of evil.
On the other side Christians, – I shall limit myself to catholics, as I dislike infringing upon areas not my own, thus – catholics, seem to think that attending ‘mass,’ to use the word they themselves would use, saying ‘book’ prayers, going for pilgrimages, and giving to charity is all there is to it; and the clergy takes pains (!) that the laity remain in this mindset.
Here is a sample of what I write there.
…Do hope You visit that page. …Hearty Regards.
PS: Am not able to type all that well with my left hand. So forgive me if I do not get in touch with You too much.
This is addressing ONE side of issues, Francis @Pontifex. Till you write addressing Caste-ism, Racism, errant, lazy and money hungry bishops and priests, Catholic judges, policemen and officials, Regularly n Powerfully, you are failing in your duty.
Just to insert a pic, and to be abreast of things, one of two shopkeepers who were beaten SO badly they died, in police custody, in South India. [ This while Floyd‘s death is SO fresh in our minds. ]
Pope Francis @Pontifex
If you are looking for meaning in life but, not finding one, you throw yourself away with “imitations of love”, such as wealth, career, pleasure, or an addiction, let Jesus look at you, and you will discover you have always been loved.
There, @Pontifex_es! LAY ppl, and NON Christians are saying these things, and you, despite having an accredited Twitter handle and a TEAM, I am Sure, to help you in tweeting, are Quiet as a Mouse. Shame.
Add to that the Huge Caste-ism in India.
Thunder on these things, francis Pontifex, Inc

Swami Yesudas @SwamiYesudas
Just noticed a video in You Tube: ‘The Revolution has entered the church.’
WHAT Revolution? Is somebody from Africa going to be the next pope? Or from China, or any such?
Has there been a Diktat against ‘Caste-ism,’ SO prevalent in India, particularly in the South?
There is a rather famous story of the Barber who became Busy shaving Cats because he had no other business.
Let the #Vatican address the Serious issues.
Not because I say it.
But because Matthew 25 does.
HE is Hungry yet; and is going around Homeless and Naked.
It is NOT enough, to Open a few more Soup kitchens.
#Paul and #Peter and #John THUNDERED through their writings.
‘It is not right to Neglect the preaching of God’s word in order to handle finances.’ Acts 6:2.
Speak about Mexican #Children held in #Cages. About #Freedom being destroyed.
SPEAK ON PARTICULAR INSTANCES.
Some tweets, with Additions:
1. pope francis, @Pontifex_es, found that you believe in ‘“piccoli passi” – baby steps.’
2. Whereas, YOUTH, not yet out of their teens, like #GretaThurnberg, are Roaring away.
3. Did #Christ use ‘“piccoli passi” – baby steps,’ my dear francis @Pontifex_es, or did Peter or Paul? …Did Isaiah, or ANY of the Prophets?
[ By taking ‘Baby Steps,’ and using words that would not hurt anybody, -UNlike mine, – We may be Protecting our Necks, to say the least. Is this What Christ wanted? ]
4. ‘How Dare you say, you have done Enough?’ …from Greta’s speech.
