O God, who in the abasement of your Son have raised up a fallen world, fill your faithful with holy joy, for on those you have rescued from slavery to sin you bestow eternal gladness. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Visit of Most Reverend Govindu Joji
Bishop of Nalgonda
This week, a long-term friend of a bishop from Andra Pradesh, M. Pierre Aubin (above), introduced me to Bishop Govindu Joji of Nalgonda, India. It is always a joy to meet a fellow member of the College of Bishops and to exchange on the challenges and fruits of Catholic life.
