Fr. Guezou’s Tenth Death Anniversary

We remember Fr. Guezou's Tenth Death anniversary.Fr. Guezou was a true apostle of Jesus Christ, an ardent devotee of Blessed mother and beloved son of Don Bosco. He was a great missionary who toiled his whole life for the upliftment of poor people in south India, especially in Yelagiri Hills. Gospel of Luke 4:18 says, “the spirit of the lord is upon him, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the Poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free.”

    Fr. Guezou lived his life fulfilling this gospel values in Yelagiri Hills. He brought the good news in instilling the value of unity ‘let all be one,’ and took care of poor people without any partiality. He removed the blindness of literacy of the children of Yelagiri Hills and many other places in Tamil nadu and kerala. He also helped to setup different educational or social welfare institutions in Alangulam, Keela Iral, Virudhunagar, Nettur, Sayalkudi, Vaduthala, vennala, pallurthy. He helped poor people by providing lands for agriculture and dug a well for irrigation. He dedicated 47 years in Yelagiri Hills for the upliftment of the poor tribal. His life in Yelagiri hills was not a bed of roses but also with thorns. Yet he managed to do the will of the Creator faithfully and breathed his last on January 29th.
