Apostolic Nunciature takes notice May 3, 2010Posted by Boris Paul in Uncategorized.
Mr Jason, a member of Pullichira Parish took pains to get in touch with the Apostolic Nunciature at Delhi. The details of the representation made by him include complaints highlighted about the administration of Pullichira Parish. Our blog was also introduced to the Apostolic Nunciature. Mr Jason complained of the authoritarian style of the Catholic Priests here who threaten laymen of excommunication. Stories of illicit relationships of our Priests were also brought to the notice of the Apostolic Nunciature. A reply has been received from the Apostolic Nunciature which is reproduced below:

Dear Mr. Janson,
Thank you for your email. We have read and understood its content. I know that priests are not saints and most of them have done wrong. Maybe people like you should have become priests to make a difference. The Church needs Holy priests and I wish to ask you to join me in praying for this intention which of course is the intention of the Holy Father.
The Vatican is not promoting division in the Church in Kerala. The Church is a mother and can never promote the division of her children.
Thank you once again for written, we have taking note and efforts are being made to make sure that your complaints are looked into.
God bless you.
