Miao Diocese remembers the missing Priest at Chrism Mass

The Diocese of Miao, India, remembered and prayed for the Missing Salesian Priest Fr. Tom at the Chrism Mass on 6 April 2017.

Fr. Tom SDB is missing after the terrorist attack on the Missionary Charity Sisters in Yemen April 2016. The Priests of the diocese of Miao coming together to celebrate the Chrism Mass at the Christ the Light Shrine in Miao remembered the missing priest. In the context of being faithful to the Lord always and having courage to follow the footsteps of Jesus Christ, they remembered to pray for the salesian priest.

Bishop George Pallipparambil SDB, congratulating the Priests on the day of the Priesthood, exhorted the Priests before they renewed their priestly promises to be Priests after the heart of Jesus. “If you really want to know what kind of Priests Jesus is, look at the Cross”, he said. Resounding the words of Pope Francis, he asked the Priests to have the smell of the sheep.

The Diocese of Miao continues to pray for Fr. Tom and for the safety of the Christians across the world and for peace.
