Saints are powerful beacons of the light that Christ gave to the world. Every situation in their lives is an exemplar of their discernment of God’s will and of their total commitment to realise this will in themselves and when they are at the service of others. They give us courage and assurance. After all they were men and women like us, graced yet frail, who did what all of us are called for – to search for God and to respond to him at every moment of our lives.
Ven. Agnelo is one of such servant of God,Ven. Agnelo devotion is followed by many goans,indians and all those who have heard or read about him so much that he is believed to be god or incarnation of him. But he was mere men of flesh and blood like any other man living in this world. he faced the difficulties, trials, sufferings of this world like all other men. he had the moments of joy and also of defeat and victory too, like all men in their lifetime. But he faced all these trials and difficulties with courage and faith in God, who he knew, writes straight on crooked lines. he was humble enough to accept the triumphs,joys and consolation as God’s gifts.He spend his energy, his life, himself in the service of the fellowmen. Departing, he left footprints of virtues behind in the sands of times.
