Brother Joseph Thamby

Br. Joseph Thamby was born in the year 1883 to Annamalle and Savarimuthu in Pondicherry. Fascinated by the ideal life of St. Francis of Assisi, he joined the Third Order of St. Francis of Assisi. In 1936, he preached the word of God to the Tribes of Pachamalai in Tamilnadu. In the same year he helped at Manathidal Parish in the diocese of Kumbakonam. For the first time in 1937, he stepped into Andhra Pradesh at Bitragunta in Nellore District. Later, he reached the then parish Kesarapally. At the request of the parish priest Rev. Fr. John B. Calderaro, he settled down in the Peddavutapally. He proclaimed the Message of God’s love and performed many miracles in the surrounding villages like Vatluru, Manikonda, Thelaprolu, Kesarpally, Uppulur…etc. As he had foretold, he died on the 15th of January 1945 at the house of Boyapati Francis and Claramma and was buried here. Since then, many people who pray at his tomb receive God’s Favors and blessings through the intercessions of Br. Joseph Thamby.
