"There was no quarrel or misunderstanding or transfer-dispute that was not solved by Fr. Theophane. Everyone, whether it be the senior priest or the junior priest or the parishioners, accepted the judgements and decisions of Father. In Narakkal, he solved a hundred-year old case"
St Francists Assisi Province, Kerala
"The sermons of Fr. Theophane were often simple, brief and matter of fact; he had an unusual gift of speech to lift his listeners to the heights of lofty thoughts".
"When I joined the monastery, I felt no sorrow or loneliness because of the love and warmth of Fr. Theophane's presence. He extended his kindness to the poor and the sorrowful. He helped in the kitchen by washing the plates and cleaning the fish. He was a dedicated confessor and a well-known retreat preacher. He preached more by his life than by his lips and tongue. His spirit of poverty and mortification was the source of his forceful preaching. He slept minimum and he ate minimum; but he was ever ready to do any service to others"
