Good people like Thankspan can do lot in this direction without going on accusing somebody and evolving a suitable machinery taking all stake holders into confidence. Yes we need lot of changes. First of all we must realise that our foremost loyalty is to Christ and Jis Churv

Can there be commercial properties in the church? Christ chased the people who were engaged in commercial work in the Jerusalem temple! I think Christ today is alive through court to challenge the commercial properties of the church.
Church must foster tithe, which is proposed by God himself. And stop all the commercial institutions… Let the better able laymen do it. Religious sisters and catholic priests and brothers do pastoral work… Support the laity. Now a days priests and sisters are interested in teaching other religious lips like yoga, meditation etc. They don’t have time for prayers of the church.
we should not wonder to hear
