Cardinal Oswald - Retired priests are 'burning furnaces of prayer'
April 25, 2019
Retired priests are “examples of burning furnaces of prayer” for the Church, says India’s leading prelate.
Cardinal Oswald Gracias, Archbishop of Bombay, celebrated Easter Morning Mass with the 23 retired priests at the Clergy Home in Mumbai.
“All of our priests follow Jesus: Follow Jesus in our ministry in the Gospel, through our baptism we enter into Christ’s death and Resurrection. This is our guarantee that our apostolate is effective. That there is never a hopeless situation for a Christian, no room for despair in our ministry, no room to say that this is a lost cause. No sinner can sin so much that he can never be forgiven. No situation is so complicated that it can never be resolved. No conflict so great that peace cannot come,” Gracias said.
