Hi Cornel,
Unfortunately there are a lot of Believers' and
Charismatic groups operating in Goa and India, that
are actively pursuing evangelisation. Although
initially the Catholic Church had distanced itself

that a lot of Goans are attracted to these movements,
which are perceived to be slightly more dynamic that
the mainstream Church.

Active evangelisation is very sad indeed and
especially when pursued with the idea of "salvation"
tagged onto it. We are as irrelevant as ants on this
universe and yet we assume ourselves to be so
grandiose as to be concerned with the "salvation" of
