A magnetic glow of hope

Alternative Health Care Ministry, Dumka-Raiganj Province

By Thomas Kattathara, SJ

Can a Jesuit be a magnet? I believe so! M.J. Peter is one such Jesuit. He irresistibly attracts the crippled, the lame, and the weak to himself with his magnetic therapy coupled with his vivacious personality. “...and they brought to him all the sick, those who were afflicted with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, and paralytics, and he healed them” (Matt 4:24). A visit to Peter has itself a galvanizing effect! Peter’s good humor and support cheer up those around him.

Alternative Health Care Clinic, as it is known, had a modest beginning in 1995 in the village of Cilimpur, West Bengal, where “Peter began to treat people with magnets.” That small effort turned out to be consequential. A.H.C.C. in Kalidangal, Rampurhat, in West Bengal, is the hope of many of the afflicted from different parts of the Sub-Continent. Peter treats all sorts of bone, nerve, muscle, and many other problems. Remarkable! Most of the patients that Peter treats have been rejected by well-known doctors and hospitals! A.H.C.C is perhaps the most important apostolate in the South Asian Assistancy. This springs from the fact that there is no other alternative; thus, this ministry becomes an “essential service” within our option for the poor.
