VATICAN: Lauding the Catholic Church in Kerala Pope
Francis on Monday said that the Catholic Church in Kerala are places of divine
invocations. The Kerala Catholic Church have a special power and should move
forward with that, the Pope said. He was speaking while blessing the Malayali
groups who had visited St Peter's Bascilica.
India has always been a fertile land for Christian
church. Kerala is a land of many blessings. There should be more nuns like
Euphrasia from Kerala, the Pope said.
Kerala is a great land of faith and divinity. Churches
in the state are active. Canonisation of Father Kuriakose Elias and Sister
Euphrasia has further enriched the Catholic church in Kerala.
Pope had made a special mention about his greetings
for Cardinals, Metropolitans, priests and families who had reached St Peter’s
Bascilica in Vatican on the eve of canonisation on Sunday.
