IF CHRIST IS TAKEN OUT FROM CHRISTMAS CAN THERE BE A MAS ?

“Gracias said that Church was aware of the allegations and had appointed a finance commission.” “We are taking precautions and the property committee has been set up too. Not all allegations are true but some people keep feeling certain things should be checked,” he said.”He touched upon the issue when a question was raised after community members from Mahim were seen protesting.

Attached above is part of  the statement made on February 4th ,2011 to the DNA newspaper.

Who were the members of the Finance Commission?

Does any one know what is the outcome of the so called checking? 

Or was the statement made to throw dust in the eyes of the laity.

Till today the complainants statements have not been recorded by any person so appointed to check.

Are the allegations true or false?

Thirty Four months have passed since the statement has been made by the Head of the Archdiocese of Mumbai.

The Archbishop claims that he does not believe in time frames.

Will the results of the inquiry come in this century or not?

Is some one being protected?

Did the property need the sanction of the Archbishop for being sold?

Can such people celebrate MAS?

IF CHRIST IS TAKEN OUT FROM CHRISTMAS CAN THERE BE A MAS ?

To what extent can the laity be fooled?

We are taking precautions about property: Church

Cardinal Oswald Gracias was speaking at a press conference on Friday held to announce the unveiling of the statue of late Pope John Paul II on February 9.

After mishandling of church property increasingly coming under the scanner, the Archbishop of Bombay, Cardinal Oswald Gracias, said that the Church was taking precautions.
Gracias was speaking at a press conference on Friday held to announce the unveiling of the statue of late Pope John Paul II on February 9.
The unveiling will be done by Pope’s representative Cardinal Murphy O’Connor. Celebrations are planned along with meetings of the clergy, inter-religious prayer meeting and a youth rally.
Gracias said that Church was aware of the allegations and had appointed a finance commission. “We are taking precautions and the property committee has been set up too. Not all allegations are true but some people keep feeling certain things should be checked,” he said.
He touched upon the issue when a question was raised after community members from Mahim were seen protesting.
Paul, whose “sainthood” has been debated as it was fast-tracked leaving many others in line, will be one of the recent statues to come up in the Cathedral complex. On May 1, Paul will be achieving the “blessed” stature, the state before granting sainthood.
Gracias said, “The reason Mother Teresa’s and Paul’s sainthoods were fast tracked is because there was large scale acceptance of them.”
   

About The Voice Of Bombay's Catholic Laity

Bombay Laity Ezekiel’s Chapter 3 Task as Watchman 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 18 When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for[b] their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 19 But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.

    Dear Friends, Christ was never in Christmas. We must not put Christ in Christmas but put Christ in our childlike heart because we are children of God. Christmas is a commemoration or remembrance of Jesus birth sign of God’s unconditional forgiveness and unconditional. wishing you and your family peaceful and joyful Christmas-Fr.Robin,Pune.
