How many common catholics have tried meeting the Bishops and have asked for a meeting?
The standard answer they will get is that the Bishops are busy and will not be free for the next two months.
However what is most surprising is that some persons who insulted our Catholic religion were able to get a meeting with the Bishop and too within a day!!!
What is even more surprising is that they were forgiven by the Archdiocese of Bombay!!!
What is even more surprising is that the persons pursuing the case were kept in the dark about the sudden forgiving nature of our Archdiocese of Bombay .
There is nothing wrong with this forgiving nature ,but what is totally wrong is the selective forgiving nature of the so called Archdiocese of Bombay.
An FIR for theft was lodged by a Priest in Mahim against a 22 year old catholic girl for having stolen Rs.20,000/-.
Before she could be arrested she returned the money and asked to be forgiven.
E mails were sent to the Bishop asking them to forgive the said girl.
But sadly she was arrested and was sent to the lock up, and produced in court as a criminal.
Till today she is still gong to the Court and taking dates.
It appears that the forgiveness is directly proportional to the richness of the offender.Charity begins at home.
Sad but true.
