With My Heroes (and other friends) After my Evening Talks

by Steve Ray on November 16, 2012

I told them I could not do what they do here, not even for ten minutes. I told them they make me proud to be a Catholic!


Another great bunch of folks surrounding Tim Staples, my wife Janet and I. This was the Varsai India Youth Convention with wonderful Catholic Youth in India.

They make us all proud to be Catholic! Steve, don’t sell yourself short. Your talents and energy support and spread the good works of these dedicated nuns. These exceptional workers, need a PR department. You and I can serve that purpose. God bless you in your efforts.

Hi Mr.Steve Ray and Tim Staples !
I, Cyril Botelho was with you on 17th and 18th of November 2012, for a two day Apologetics Convention at St. Pius X Seminary ground, Goregaon East; Mumbai. I was touched by your knowledge of the Bible, and numbed several times during these two days convention by soaking my eyes with tears in silence. Not because you went wrong in your briefings occasionally and corrected by yourselves, but because you both helped me to learn more and more of Jesus. Your extreme knowledge, wisdom and humors have opened a path to my vision. I want to be like you. When will I be one?
May God Bless you both and keep you safe where ever you both travel, and protect you from all calamities both natural and man made.
Thank you Steve and Tim for the autograph in ” IGNATIUS CATHOLIC STUDY BIBLE- NEW TESTAMENT” , a second Catholic edition RSV.
God Bless you both and your loving family members. Wish you all A Merry Christmas And A Prosperous New year 2013. And A Knowledge filled New year 2013 to both of you Steve and Tim.
See you next time when you visit Mumbai….
Cyril Botelho.

Praise God Steve & Janet!!! Thank God for bringing you to Hyderabad to address the Catholic crowd. Your talks made me realize that most of the Catholics just follow the rituals like going for the Holy Mass, only because our parents taught us to do nit knowing why we do it.Even I was like that but through you God inspired that for every little thing that is in the Catholic Church there is history behind it and I will make it a practice to find the reason why it is like the way it is…..

I came alone today to hear you but tomorrow I am coming with my whole family to hear you.
Cheers to you and Janet for the good work and the insight you both are spreading about the Catholic Church!!!

And lastly, Janet I just love the way you smile every single moment….You always have a grin and that motivated me to smile always no matter what! :)
Jesse, my prayers will always be with your mom and dad, your family too :)

God bless both of you!!!Take care….Hope to see you again.
