Thousands join Eucharistic procession

PAPU NALLAH, Nov 25: Thousands of Catholic faithful of the Itanagar diocese joined the annual Eucharistic procession held at the Catholic church here on Sunday.
Itanagar bishop John Thomas led them in the concelebrated holy Eucharist.
Speaking at the introductory rite of the holy mass, the bishop exhorted the faithful to be proud of their faith and have the courage to show it.
“Show your faith, but respect the faiths of others as well,” he said.
The bishop also led the gathering in praying for the nation, especially the state of Arunachal Pradesh, and for its leaders, both civil and religious.
Earlier, during the concelebrated holy mass, Fr Kamil Horo, parish priest of St Mary’s parish, Itanagar, called upon the Catholic faithful to follow the footsteps of Jesus Christ, “who washed the feet of his disciples and set an example of service to humanity and a prerequisite to enter heaven and everlasting life.”
