Archbishop’s Diwali Message

ARCHBISHOP’S MESSAGE FOR DIWALI (2017)

On the occasion of yet another Festival of Lights – Deepawali – I am glad to send to our Hindu brethren, in my name and on behalf of the Catholic community of Goa, our warm greetings and wishes for a truly joyful Feast. On this festival that celebrates the triumph of good over evil, of truth over falsehood and of light over darkness, it is my sincere wish and prayer that we, the people of this beautiful State of Goa, coming from various religious and cultural backgrounds, through our mutual respect, esteem and friendship, may become concrete examples and living proofs of harmony and peace for our fellow-Indians throughout our land and beyond. At this time of renewal, of sharing and of joy, may we come together to work for peace, understanding and cooperation among ourselves and in the world at large.
