Over 600 priests, nuns attend faith convention
Nov. 5, 2013
Over 600 priests and nuns of Mangalore diocese gathered to celebrate their faith experience during the Year of Faith, which was inaugurated in Oct. 2012 on the occasion of golden jubilee of second Vatican Council. While around 500 were the religious nuns from different Congregations who have their houses in the diocese, more than 150 religious and diocesan priests participated in the Faith Convention held at Rosario Cathedral yesterday. “Faith should be our ultimate and only priority in life. Our lives are animated, moved and illumined by the gift of faith which is living experience to every believer,” said Bishop Thomas Dabre of Pune. He said that faith is the greatest treasure given to us by God which makes our life simple, committed and Christ oriented. “We need to experience this faith within us before sharing it with others. It is a relationship with God and one another. It should be fostered in its quality which will make our life unique and special. Pope Francis is one such example before us,” he added.
Bishop Aloysius Paul D’Souza of Mangalore said that before sharing and strengthening the faith of others, we need to experience its depth in ourselves. “It is with this intention, a separate faith convention for priests and religious was suggested,” he added.
