Prayer Meeting Held at Collegio San Paolo on 12 January, 2008.

ROME, Italy – IPSBU (Indian Priests, Sisters and Brothers Union) organises a Prayer Meeting for the riot affected poor Christians in Kandhamal Dt, Orissa, India. His Eminence Most Rev. Peter Prabhu emphasizes on the value of prayer in the moment of troubles quoting Jesus as the man of prayer. He encouarages the Christians to be rooted in the christian values namely love, humility, prayer and forgiveness. He also stresses that the fruit of the meeting should be prayer. Fr. Sebastian gives a reflective information on the tragedy of Christians in Orissa, India and its political manipulation. The Sangh Parivar, RSS and BJP are responsible for the attack on Christians. It is not because of conversion they attack Christians but because they are liberated by the priests, sisters and so many christian voluntary and social groups from their oppressed social structure. The media doesn’t focus on the reality. Many priests sisters and brothers turn up for this important occasion of solidarity with the suffering ones in spite of incessant rainfall and the forthcoming semestral exams.
