Welcome to the TV Devotions.
May I take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Father Babu Mathew. (My family name is Vellammackal). I was born in Kerala, India. I was ordained a Redemptorist priest in 2004 and have been living and working in Canada since December of 2006. I am presently the pastor of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish in Vancouver, B. C.
Although I live and work in Vancouver, my Provincial, Fr. Mark Miller has asked me to act as the host of the Perpetual Help Devotions TV Program. This will require me, from time to time to travel to Toronto to record parts of the TV Program. Otherwise, I will depend on the help of the part-time and volunteer workers in our Toronto office to respond to any enquiries on my behalf.
We Christians honour our Blessed Mother Mary under many titles. However, we Redemptorists, have a particular devotion to her as Our Mother of Perpetual Help.
Mary’s life is a model for us to copy. We call her the First Disciple because she said “YES” when asked to be the Mother of Jesus. Her love and fidelity to her Son began when He was a child in her womb and that love carried her to the foot of the cross where she saw Him suffer and die. After Jesus’ resurrection we find Mary sitting and praying with the Apostles. We believe in faith that Mary is with God in heaven. We unite our prayers with Mary and put our trust in her Son, Jesus.
In the Holy Redeemer,
Fr. Babu Mathew, C.Ss.R.
