“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father is pleased to give you the Kingdom.” (Luke 12:32)

Television and its programmes have started to control daily schedule of our families – the lay society which is the basic constituent of the Holy Church. Evening prayers, participation in the Holy Mass, have all been converted to suit the timings of TV programmes.

In this era, where television has taken over the importance attained by remote control in our homes, it is essential to display attractively, diversified programmes based on Gospel, on Spiritual channels.

We have very little joint ventures working through visual media. The reason is none other than this: It is an exclusive working zone, which requires enormous monetary expenditure and human hard work.

The significance of this small flock, Immanuel Vision, is here. I pray that Jesus, Our Lord may firmly utilize Immanuel Vision, producing diverse programmes and motion picture, depending entirely on God’s grace, for attaining growth of God’s kingdom, bringing God’s word in the midst of public, through electronic display boards, at public places, cinema theatres, following novel Gospel method.

Just as second Vatican Council exhorts, it is our duty to support with economic resources and prayers, this type of services, which brings about vast economic liabilities. For this, I believe, if wealth saved by observing moderation in celebrating feasts and other money-flaunting exercises, is utilized for visual media Gospel propagation, so many souls can be benefitted.

I pray for the successful completion of feature film based on the life of Fr. Benedict Onamkulam, which is already started. Immanuel Vision may receive in large …3

quantity that zeal from anointing fire, for the production of varied programmes inlaid in the Gospel.

Together with it, I pray that through working style of visual media, standing along with Holy Church, many souls may be brought along to salvation.

Wishing grace and peace of Our Lord Jesus Christ..

With lots of love,
Your own in Jesus

“…but the Word of God is not in chains” (2 Timothy 2:9)"

In spite of being hand-cuffed like a criminal, just because God’s Word was being propagated without adulteration, St. Paul proclaimed Christ as sole Redeemer and Lord till death.

I sincerely pray that Jesus, Our Lord may fill with all types of heavenly grace, all activities of Immanuel Vision, which goes delivering Word of the Lord, courageously savoring the signs of this current time slot, in a novel manner, through visual media.

It is the need of today, that a lot of co-workers from our parish should enter into Immanuel Vision, God’s Workshop for product of the Kingdom of God.

Praying that the Holy Spirit may grant spiritual strength, to wage war consistently, like a good soldier of Christ, through visual media.

Your own,

"Jesus said “I am the way, the truth and the life :
no one goes to the Father except by me” John 14:6

Immanuel Vision is a prayer fellowship for the proclamation of Jesus as the only Redeemer of theworld and as the Way, Truth and the Life through the visual media to the whole world.

Let God's blessing shower upon them and their work, since they depend on His grace and His strength! In this age, it is the greatest need that Jesus be present in the visual media. Immanuel Vision has seen this and have made this their sole aim in their work. I therefore invite all people of like minds to co-operate and help them in this endeavour.

Let us pray especially for the Intercession of Holy Mary.
I would like to wish everyone a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!

With lots of love,,
Fr. John Maria Viani Olakkengil
