BIS #4901 MERCY BEYOND BOUNDARIES

by Anthony Serrao

 

MUMBAI, AUG 26, 2016: "Mercy beyond Boundaries" was the theme chosen by the Our Lady of Dolours (Wadala) Inter-Faith Cell and the Bombay Catholic Sabha, as they organised an Inter-Faith Meet at St. Joseph's School Hall, on August 21 from 9.30 to 11.00am.

 

The event started with the singing of the National Anthem.  The speakers invited were Professor Harsha Badkar from the Hindu faith,  Zuhair Nathani from the Muslim faith, Shilpa Chheda from the Jain faith, Rustom Chothia from the Zoroastrian faith and the Parish Priest of Our Lady of Dolours, Father Vivian D'Souza representing the Catholic faith. 

 

Father D'Souza spoke on the virtue of Mercy beyond Boundaries as found in the different religious scriptures. Their expositions were studied and it made the event very informative.

 

The event was well attended by parishioners and people of other faith. The insights of the speakers, stirred a lot of thought and showed all present, the commonality in beliefs.
