Indian Catholic Bishops’ message for Diwali – Vatican News

CBCI's Diwali greeting card.

Thank you Nestor for drawing my attention to the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India (CBCI) Diwali message, in these words: The Hindu festival, celebrated on Wednesday, November 7, this year in India, recalls the night when Lord Rama returned to his palace in Ayodhya with his wife Sita and brother Laxman after a 14-year exile.  This represents the CBCI backing for Ayodhya !!!At the Holy Name Cathedral they usually have a Diwali “mass.”  Regards, John
