Mangaluru: Fourth day novena in preparation for the feast of Relic of St Anthony
Mangauru: Rev. Fr Gerald Lobo O.F.M.(Capuchin), Superior of Monte Mariano Community Farangipete celebrated the Holy Mass on the fourth day of the novena.
In his homily Fr Lobo informed the congregation that in the recent past the number of people committing suicide has increased steadily. People due to depression, failure in business ventures, false accusation think of ending life. If we can spare a little time for such people there is a possibility that they may pass through that phase and survive to live. He also called on the people gathered to pray for such people that Jesus the Light of world may take away the darkness of mind and lead them to the light of hope.

Fr Thrishan D’Souza another Assistant Director of the Ashram conducted the novena at 7.30 pm at the entrance gate of the Ashram.
