From the desk of Pottypadre

Dear readers,

For over a year and a half most of you have been receiving ‘PottyPadre’ daily. These Gospel exegesis (because they are not based on merely a thought but on sound interpretation) come to you free. In addition I have also begun to podcast the same for those who prefer  to listen to the Gospel message while on their way to work or college. At times the work load of my day permits me to merely write and I have to skip recording the podcast. I hope to be more faithful in this respect too and ask for your understanding till then. Between ministering to a parish, constructing a multi purpose structure for prayer and service to the poor, running a Museum and the Heritage Committee and lecturing to lay people and seminarians, my day often ends with me dozing before I hit the pillow.

It takes me two hours to put this all together and it is often the best part of my day.Today, I write today to make a request. Just as you freely receive this blog, please feel free to pass it on. In our confused and often tumultuous lives, the Word of God becomes a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our lives ( Psalm 119: 105) and when we share His word we become the messengers of His Good  News to those in need.

Social media with its SHARE BUTTON has reminded us to ‘share’ once again and often we share things which may be much less worthy of our time. The Word of God is worth sharing . Thank you for your continued encouragement, especially to those who write in to me and leave their comments . Your encouragement is heartening .

Many of you have also written in with ideas asking me to expand this ministry. While I thank you you I say this to you, I began this blog on Ash Wednesday 2017 at His prompting and I know that He who began a good work will see it to completion ( Philippians 1:6).

In case you do not receive the daily bog via whatsap or email simply log onto

Spread the love ♥

  • Fr…. the amount of time and dedicated efforts you put in to nourish our spiritual lives is beyond commendable… The audio version of the gospel and the reflection, both, is an add on… Thankyou for all your efforts. I do try my best to read the blogs daily.
    God bless you in all your endeavours!

  • Dear Padre,

    Potty Padre has been your most precious gift to those of to those of us who have moved abroad and miss being around for your sermons and talks. The audio podcasts are the icing on the cake and Im sure everyone of us dabbling around with our day would agree that going through them makes our lives easier.

    You are a blessing to people around you just because you do everything thinking about us.

    Your schedule is perhaps busier than any of Orr schedules and yet you make time for this and we appreciate the same. You have our constant support as we know that you will always keep trying your best.

    Thank you for making a difference. ❤️
