Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The 33rd General Body Meeting of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India held at St. John’s National Academy of Health Sciences inaugurated on 2nd February, 2018 ended on 9th February, 2018 with a solemn thanksgiving mass presided over by the New President, Cardinal Oswald Gracias and a Valedictory Function which followed. The Apostolic Nuncio, Archbishop Giambattista Diquattro, was present at this concluding event. The Theme of the General Body Meeting was: “I am with you always to the end of the age” (Mt 28:20) - “United in Diversity for a Mission of Mercy and Witness”.

The members elected Cardinal Oswald Gracias, Archbishop of Bombay as the New President, Most Rev. Joshua Mar Ignathios Metropolitan Bishop of the Eparchy of Mavelikkara as the First Vice President and Most Rev. George Mar Njaralakatt Metropolitan Archbishop of Tellicherry as the Second Vice President of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India for a period of two years. Bishop Theodore Mascarenhas SFX continues his three year term as the Secretary General of CBCI.

The Bishops following Jesus their master rededicated themselves to their mission of service and witness: feeding the hungry, comforting the disturbed, promoting the dignity of the marginalized, healing the sic k, giving hope to the hopeless, freedom to the captives, forgiveness to the sinners, and justice to the poor.

Given that Christianity came to India over two thousand years ago, the Bishops underlined the contribution of the Church in India to nation building and service to all Indians irrespective of religion, region, culture, race or language. According to the Bishops, India needs the Church and the Church needs India. No one should doubt our loyalty or our commitment to the nation. They appealed for true nationalism that can lead our motherland to genuine peace, harmony, progress and prosperity. Authentic nationalism respects the human dignity of every citizen and calls for integral and inclusive development that percolates to every strata of our society.

The Catholic Bishops wish to urgently call all people of goodwill to uphold the rule of law guaranteed by our Indian Constitution. In a climate of violence, they appealed to all fellow citizens to shun mob culture and vigilantism in favour of peace.

The Bishops desire to continue and intensify their collaboration and partnership with the Government at the Centre and in the States to reinforce our work of nation-building through educational, healthcare and social upliftment activities.

In service to the nation, especially to the Dalits, Tribals and other backward classes, the Christians will join hands with all men and women of goodwill, to ensure the integral and holistic human development of our beloved country which is measured by the scale of human index, and not merely by economic statistics.

The Bishops urged all Indians, to resolve to go beyond narrow domestic walls of every kind in order to establish a truly secular, socialist and democratic nation as is enshrined in the Constitution of India. Dialogue with followers of other religions and with ecumenical groups is the need of the hour.

The General Assembly resolved to promote transparency and accountability in society. They plan to encourage and train lay people and youth for involvement in vitally important areas of our national life such as politics, civil services, defense, law and judiciary.

The Catholic Church will ensure the implementation of the CBCI Policy of Dalit Empowerment in every diocese, work for the protection and integral development of the Tribals and Other Backward Classes (OBCs) and take special initiatives for the relief and welfare of farmers, fisher folk, migrants and other deprived and exploited communities by providing care, comfort and hope to them in their distress.

An important mission to be undertaken by the Church is to work towards increasing the awareness about ecological issues and protection of the environment according to the teachings of Laudato Si, the Encyclical Letter of Pope Francis.

The Bishops reaffirmed the love of all Christians for our beloved country as we continue to pray constantly for it and its wellbeing. They pointed out that the Christian faith gives us hope to move ahead to continue our work for unity in diversity so as to establish peace and harmony and make our country live up to its exalted calling.

The Members of the 33rd General Body Meeting of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India entrusted themselves in all that they do for the Church and society, to the loving care of Mary, Mother of Mercy.

Pope Francis establishes new feast of Mary as ‘Mother of the Church’

ROME - Pope Francis, whose devotion to Mary is well-known, on Saturday established a new feast for the Catholic Church devoted to Mary as the “Mother of the Church,” to be celebrated on the Monday after Pentecost.

The decision was announced in a decree by the Vatican’s Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, released on Saturday, 3rd February, 2018 by the Vatican Press Office. The decree observes that the veneration of Mary as Mother of the Church has ancient roots in Catholic tradition, reaching back to St. Augustine and St. Leo the Great. The title, the document says, is rooted in New Testament accounts about Mary. “She became the tender Mother of the Church which Christ begot on the cross, handing on the Spirit,” the decree said. “Christ, in turn, in the beloved disciple, chose all disciples as ministers of his love towards his Mother, entrusting her to them so that they might welcome her with filial affection.”

In 1964, at the close of the Second Vatican Council (1962-65), Blessed Pope Paul VI formally declared Mary as the “Mother of the Church,” and invited Catholics to invoke Mary’s help under that title. During the Jubilee year of 1975, the Vatican produced a special Mass, called a “votive Mass,” for Mary under the title of Beata Maria Ecclesiæ Matre, or “Blessed Mary Mother of the Church,” and also approved inserting the title into various prayers in honor of Mary. With the new decree, devotion to Mary as Mother of the Church now becomes an approved feast for the universal Church.
“Having attentively considered how greatly the promotion of this devotion might encourage the growth of the maternal sense of the Church in the pastors, religious and faithful, as well as a growth of genuine Marian piety, Pope Francis has decreed that the Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church, should be inscribed in the Roman Calendar on the Monday after Pentecost and be now celebrated every year,” the document said. “This celebration will help us to remember that growth in the Christian life must be anchored to the Mystery of the Cross, to the oblation of Christ in the Eucharistic Banquet and to the Mother of the Redeemer and Mother of the Redeemed, the Virgin who makes her offering to God,” it said.

The decree stipulated that the feast should appear in all calendars and liturgical books. It also said that once translations of the texts for the new feast are approved by bishops’ conferences, they will be published after the congregation gives its confirmation. Last October, Francis transferred primary responsibility for overseeing many matters of liturgical translation from the congregation to bishops’ conferences around the world.

Diaconate Ordination of bro. Cornelius Orea

On 3rd of February, 2018 was a remarkable day for Bro. Cornelius Orea, as he was elevated to the Sacred Order of Diaconate along with eight brothers of different dioceses at St. Charles Seminary, Nagpur.  The Brothers were conferred the order of Diaconate by His grace Most Rev. Bishop Abraham Viruthakulangara, the Archbishop of Nagpur in the Solemn Holy Eucharist Celebration. In his homily, Archbishop exhorted the Deacons to be faithful to their promises and obligation to the duties.

A good number of faithful, priests, religious, family members of deacons, relatives and well wishes were present to witness this joyful event. The melodious choir led by Brothers of Seminary added a celestial tune to participate the faithful more meaningfully in the celebration of Holy Eucharist. Soon after the Holy Eucharist, the newly ordained Deacons were felicitated by the community. The celebration concluded with the fellowship meal. We heartedly congratulate Deacon Cornelius Orea and wish him all the best for his future ministry.

A Kisan Mela at Tentla, Potka

India is mainly an agricultural country. Agriculture is the most important occupation for most of the Indian families.

Dear Brothers and sisters in Christ,

All the Christian denominations coming together, leaving aside their differences, believes, traditions and liturgy is indeed a Christian unity but in its narrowest sense. There can be unity in diversity. 

 1.   The Church
We need to realize the real meaning of Church before we think about the unity of different churches. The Church is the body of Christ and it is Christ Himself who is the head of the Body, the Church (Col 1:18). The Scripture says, ‘All of us, whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free, have been baptized in one Spirit to form one body and all of us have been given to drink from the one Spirit’ (I Cor 12:13). Further, St. Paul in his letter to the Ephesians says, ‘Let there be one Body and one Spirit, just as you were called, One Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God, the Father of all, who is above all and works through all and is in all’ (Eph 4:4-6). He continues to say, ‘See, the body is one even if formed by many members, but not all of them with the same function’ (Rom 12:4).

The words of St. Paul state a fact that everyone who calls himself/herself a Christian is indeed a part of the mystical of Body of Christ. 

2. Divisions in the Church
Though we are spiritually One, there is division among our midst. The annals of history bears the bitter truth that we have divided the Church, the Mystical Body of Christ. We imprison Christ in our churches and gloat over the monopoly of Christ. We hold our churches in highest esteem and look down on other churches.

3.The need for unity among the churches
There is only one CHURCH, the Church of Christ, the Mystical Body of Christ. Every member of this Church must be knit together in love. Christ Himself prayed for the unity of this Church, ‘May they all be one as you Father are in me and I am in you. May they be one in us; so the world may believe that you have sent me’ (Jh 17:21) St. Paul in his letter to the Ephesians instructs the faithful to be united, ‘Make every effort to keep among you the unity of Spirit through the bond of peace’ (Eph 4:3). He further instructs that ‘every apostle, prophet, evangelists, pastors and teachers must build up the Body of Christ until we are all united in the same faith and knowledge of the Son of God. Thus we shall become the perfect man, reaching maturity with the fullness of Christ’ (Eph 4:13)  

4. The Goal of unity among the churches
The goal of unity among the churches is the glory of God. Our Lord Jesus instituted the Church that we may glorify the Lord together as a family and inherit the Kingdom of God. Only when we live together as the members of the Mystical Body of Christ, knit together in love we can glorify God as Christ wants. ‘May God, the source of all perseverance and comfort, grant you to live in peace with one another in accordance with Christ Jesus, so that you may be able to praise in one voice the God and Father of Christ Jesus our Lord’ (Rom 15:5-7).

5.  Humility and Love : essential elements for unity among the churches
There can never be unity among the churches unless there is humility and love. When the people are knit together in love, we can establish unity even when there are differences. At the same time, in the absence of love and unity there can never be peace and unity. Lord Jesus, being fully human and God, realizing our weakness gave us a new law, ‘A new commandment I give you, love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are disciples, if you have love for one another’ (Jh 13:34-35)

There can never be true love unless there is humility. The presence of pride is the seed of jealousy and selfishness. In addition, St. Paul about love says, ‘Love is patient, kind, without envy. It is not boastful or arrogant. It is not ill mannered nor does not provoked to anger; keeps no score of offences. It does not take delight in wrong, but rejoices in truth’ (1 Cor 13:4-7).

For the unity, it is essential that we realize the fact that Church is the Mystical Body of Christ. and division of this Mystical Body of Christ is sin. Let us be prayerful and listen to the inspirations of the Holy Spirit. Let us wrap ourselves with the values of humility and love and live a life in accordance with the commandment of Our Lord, the commandment of Love.

Your Friend and Servant in Christ,

Bp. Felix Toppo, S.J
Bishop of Jamshedpur

St. Mary’s Parish, Bistupur
Long awaited Youth Gathering of St. Mary’s parish, was held on January 29, 2018 at St. Mary’s Junior Block, Bistupur. Rev. Fr. Edward Saldanha, the Parish Priest took a lot of effort to organize this gathering. 48 youth of our parish participated in this gathering. The gathering began with Holy Mass presided by Rev. Fr. Cornelius Tigga, S.J.

Rev. Fr. Cornelius Tigga, Mr. Tony Castleton and Sr. Reshmi were spoke persons for the Day.
Rev. Fr. Cornelius focused on need of Youth in the Church. He said that today’s youth are lost in themselves. Digital media has taken the place of a friend. Today’s youth need to have friends, they need to share their problems and find solution. He encouraged them to come forward and to be united in order to help our Church and to make a peaceful society. He said that all of us have an opportunity to grow but many of us loose it. We have to grab the opportunity in order to learn and grow. Mr. Tony Castleton challenged the youth to take courage and stand up for self-needs. He encouraged them to equip with different types of talents and become self-depended. He gave them the Mantra – ‘Discipline yourselves and discipline will make your personality hundred percentage.’  Our God comes in search of us, we need to walk with God and offer ourselves to Him and He will do wonders in our lives. Sr. Reshmi appealed the youth to read and know the Bible. She encouraged them to listen to their inner voice and come forward to live a religious life.

Rev. Fr. Edward Saldanha thanked each and everyone for making the youth gathering successful. He encouraged the youth to bring many more youth to join this group. All agreed to have next meeting on 25th February to elect the executive committee. The gathering ended with a delicious meal. (Dn. Shanti Raj)

Farmer’s Fair cum  Exhibition at Anandpur Block

India is mainly an agricultural country. Agriculture is the most important occupation for most of the Indian families.
