The Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, Ridoypur, Dinajpur, organized a special Adoration and Candlelight Rosary for Holy Father Pope Benedict. During the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and before the Rosary, Father Parimal Pereira, CSC, shared a short reflection on Saints Peter and Paul discussing the very significant roles they fulfilled giving witness and preaching about the Risen Lord in the early days of our Church. “It is on their legs, the Church stood. As Peter was, the Holy Father Pope Benedict is the Vicar of Christ.” Said Father Parimal. “It is his role to give leadership, administration, and organization with the spirit, charisma, enthusiasm, zeal and vibrancy to lead the pilgrim Church in the present time.”
Father Parimal quoted the Holy Father, “The notion of forgiveness needs to find its way into international discourse on conflict resolution. Forgiveness is not a denial of wrongdoing, but a participation in the healing and transforming love of God which reconciles and restores."
Following the reflection, participants prayed the Mysteries of the Light as they processed with candle through the field and sang Marian hymns. The procession ended at the Grotto where Father Uzzol Rozario, CSC, placed the Blessed Sacrament on the altar for Adoration and the evening concluded with the singing of the Ave Maria.
