Subject: [Goanet] Archbishop's New Year Greetings
I am glad to send to the people of Goa my cordial greetings and best wishes
for a Happy and Grace-filled New Year. I take this opportunity to make, yet
again, a fervent appeal for peace in our land and particularly in our State.
Humanity is not made better by violence and terror, but by faith and love.
Violence imprisons people in a culture of enmity and death. On the other
hand, Peace is the name of God and God never wants the destruction of the
other. Peace heals wounds and helps make this world more liveable for the
present and future generations. Let us all join hands to build such a world
during the New Year 2008.
