Parish Priest and Founder of Congregation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
 
 

Fr.Mathew Kadalikkattil was a fervant devotee of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and a man of compassionate heart whose love for God found expression in the concern for the poor and forlorn. As a parish priest he was very much like the ' Cure De Ars' who spent long hours in the confessional and brought about changes in the lives of many sinners.
He spent time, energy and resources for the spiritual and material well-being of the sheep in his fold, caring for each and every member especially the downtrodden and the forlorn.He called himself 'Servant of the Sacred Heart' and promoted devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through word,deed and exemplary life.
His heart ached seeing the sufferings of the aged, destitute, the orphaned children and the sad plight of the poor young women including widows.
Fr.Mathew sought a solution for all these problems in the Heart of Jesus. He spent long hours on his knees before the Blessed Sacrament and finally he was inspired to start a new religious congregation for women , who would care for the destitute and the orphaned . He started working for it. But he found hurdles on his path.
He kept trusting in the Divine providence. Spread of devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus was one of the most important aims of beginning the new congregation.

This man of prayer practiced the virtues of humility , meekness, love of God and man in a heroic manner and he became widely known as a saintly priest even when he was alive.
