Catholic churches to observe April 28 as special prayers day

DIMAPUR, APRIL 24 (MExN): Most Rev. Dr. James Thoppil, the Bishop of Kohima has requested for special prayers in all the Catholic churches and communities for the victims of Sri Lanka’s bombing which took place on Easter Sunday. The special prayer is being called on April 28, 2019. A statement issued from the Bishop’s house denounced the attacks as “extremely evil” and “blasphemous” because they happened on Easter Sunday. Killing people while praying is clear proof that those behind the terror have no humanity or religion and it is the extreme form of human depravity and bigotry, it added. The Bishop also stated that all forms of violence against human being must be abjured and killing of innocent people must be stopped.
