Mary Help of Christians Cathedral Kohima held a candle light service on April 28 for victims of the Sri Lanka Easter bomb blasts.

According to a press release by Mary Help of Christians Cathedral’s, Tosovi Philip, in his opening remark, Rev. Fr. Carolus commented that they pray for the souls of the dead, the injured and especially for misguided people. “Though terrorist activities are condemned, we do not condemn nor judge the terrorists because God is the ultimate judge, we pray for peace and mercy”, he stated. 

This time it was Sri Lanka, but tomorrow it could be anywhere else, because terror knows no boundaries, he said. Rev. Fr. Carolus pointed out that April 28 is also observed as the “Divine Mercy Sunday” in the Catholic Church, and it is very proper to pray for God’s mercy upon the world. 

The prayer service was led by the Novitiate sisters, keeping in mind the over 250 dead and over 500 injured. All the faithful present lit a candle each for the Sri Lanka bomb blast victims.
