Archbishop Filipe Neri Ferrao, religious leader of Goan Catholics who account
for more than a quarter of Goa's population, has appealed for special prayers
for peace for "Mother India", especially in the light of simmering hostilities
"I call upon members of other religious communities in our Archdiocese to join
us in praying for our Mother India," Ferrao said in a statement issued here on
"Ironically, it (peace) is one of the most eluding goods in today's society.
The fragile peace along the Indian border with neighbouring Pakistan is
regularly disturbed by exchange of fire and other forms of violence, revealing
a simmering state of hostility and suspicion between two countries that
otherwise share linguistic, cultural, geographic and even economic links,"
The archbishop said that instructions had been issued to the church and parish
networks to conduct special prayers "for one another and for peace in our land".
