[rti_india] Re: Fw: PETER WADI CHAWL AT BANDRA, MUMBAI 40050.


Dear Daphne

I am truly pleased to know that you are a religious person.

It is not the Lord (which some people call God) who has failed you and your friends but his false priests and their temples to Mammon and who abandoned their flock for their 30 pieces of silver.

I have communed with God, and he told me for you, "Trust [23:1 David], The Lord is my shepherd and I shall not want .. and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever".

The Lord has many houses (religions).

As the political head of your parish group, you may understand this better than I.
