Chevalier Benny Punnathara

Inspired by the Holy Spirit, Benny Punnathara took a bold step of faith, quit his job, and thus began the humble journey of Shalom Ministries. He is a prolific international Catholic speaker. Punnathara has authored numerous books which have been translated into several languages. In February 2012, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI awarded the title of 'Chevalier' to Punnathara. The title is the highest honor conferred by the Church on a lay person for outstanding contributions to the Catholic Church and society.
