Community groups support fight for Justice in the Church
12 hr peaceful hunger fast & prayers to be offered
Mumbai : A 12 hour peaceful hunger fast & prayers will be offered on Thursday, 23rd May, 2013 from 7AM to 7PM at Holy Name Cathedral premises) outside Archbishops house, Mumbai). Prayers will be recited at 11 am.
The reason why this lady, an ex-elected trustee of Dadar parish (Judith Monteiro, O.L.S Parish, Dadar), is staging a peaceful hunger fast outside the Archbishops House Bombay, is to seek Justice in a decade long false, unjust & defamation matter in her Parish. Catholic Groups like AOCC, CSF, MCYF, CPF & others have supported this cause. You too can show your support by joining the prayer service at 11 am, or pray from wherever you are at that time.
His Eminence Cardinal Oswald Gracias & His Lordship Bishop Agnelo Gracias had taken up the issue about this lady and last year in their wisdom they found her absolutely innocent (we have their statements on hand, see attachments).
However the concerned priest refuses to accept the same, which is the height of insubordination, and has refused to make an announcement to the parishioners publicly displaying lack of respect, and regard for the Bishop, and Archbishop of Bombay.
Even after bringing this to the notice of Our Dear Cardinal Oswald Gracias and Bishop Agnelo Gracias the said priest, does not care and both Our Dear Cardinal Oswald Gracias who is the head of The Archdiocese of Bombay, and one of the selected advisers to Pope Francis, and Bishop Agnelo Gracias who conducted the investigation are totally helpless.
