It was great honour to visit the family of Fr.Xavier Thelakkat who dared to forgive the sarcristian who had taken the life of their beloved son , Fr.Xavier. We handed over the momento to console and appreciate this wonderful gesture.
Fr.Xavier's mother in true values of Christ, went to sacristian house the same week when her son was murdered and the sacristian family fell on her knees and asked pardon.The mother indeed granted pardon in the name of Jesus whom her son was serving faithfully.
"Only strong can forgive. "
"Forgiveness cannot undo the past but can enlarge the future "
Yours in Christ,
