Archbishop Ferrao Sends Eid ul-Fitr Greetings

PANJIM, 25 October 2006: The Archbishop of Goa and Daman, Most Rev. Filipe Neri Ferrao has sent his wishes to the Muslim brethren celebrating their festivity of Eid ul-Fitr, after a month of prayer and fasting.

"May this festivity, that reinforces values like peace, self-control, sacrifice and charity, help them and all of us to appreciate and thank God for all his bountiful gifts, celebrate our mutual fellowship and promote inter-cultural and inter-religious understanding," the Archbishop said in a note released by the Diocesan communications centre.

"This," the Archbishop said, "will enable us to join hands together for the construction of a new society in Goa, characterized by a general spirit of sincere collaboration and harmonious living."
