    Communication and Mercy: A Fruitful Encounter

    Dear Brothers and Sisters,

    The Holy Year of Mercy invites all of us to reflect on the relationship between communication and mercy. The Church, in union with Christ, the living incarnation of the Father of Mercies, is called to practise mercy as the distinctive trait of all that she is and does. What we say and how we say it, our every word and gesture, ought to express God’s compassion, tenderness and forgiveness for all. Love, by its nature, is communication; it leads to openness and sharing.

    If our hearts and actions are inspired by charity, by divine love, then our communication will be touched by God’s own power. readmore....

Dear Brothers and Sisters,


During this week, the whole nation celebrates the feast of lights, it is commonly known as Diwali. This festival is celebrated in India and abroad by all Indians. The light has a special characteristics to dispel the darkness. It gives us confidence and removes fear from our lives. As we join our brothers and sisters of our nation, let us pray to Jesus, who was light himself, to guide us to follow his ways. May He help us to cast out all our fears and live a life of happiness.

Wishing you and our Hindu brothers and sisters "Happy Diwali"!

With love and prayers,
Yours in Christ,
