Most Rev. Gerald Isaac Lobo celebrated Christmas Eve mass at Milagres Cathedral on 24th December, 2020. The Rector of the Cathedral V. Rev. Fr Valerian Mendonca, Asst. Parish Priest Rev. Fr Canute Noronha and guest priests concelebrated the festal mass.

In his homily, Bishop Gerald Lobo said that despite the differences in celebrating Christmas throughout the world, the Christmas message is the same to all, which conveys God’s love, peace, and harmony. The birth of Christ propagates peace, love, cooperation and harmony. The Covid-19 pandemic has been spreading fear, exploitation, sorrow, violence, riots and inequality throughout the world. Under these circumstances, Christmas’s message with peace and love has emerged as the rays of hope of the early rising sun.

The Bishop said that Covid-19, which has been ravaging the world since the last nine months, has taught many lessons to humankind. All human beings belong to the same family, and everyone is related to one another as brothers and sisters. All of us need to join together and cooperate in wiping out the scourge of the deadly disease.

Before the mass a very beautiful Christmas tableau and carols singing were presented and after the mass the Bishop released revised Pastoral Plan, Mission 2025.
