SILENT VOICE Congratulates H. E. Cardinal Oswald Gracias, for his appointment as President of LATIN RIGHT BISHOPS OF INDIA.

SILENT VOICE, also urges him to pay attention to his Diocese, the Archdiocese of Bombay, which he heads.

Many of the Parishes in the Archdiocese are embroiled in controversies, particularly related to Properties and Financial matters, and lack of transparency, therein.

Indifferent attitude of Parish Clergy, towards the Laity, at large.

SILENT VOICE has been writing to H. E. from time to time about these issues and pledges support to his efforts to eradicate corruption from Parish Administrations.

The Latin rite bishops of India elected Cardinal Oswald Gracias of Mumbai as their new president on Friday, replacing Cardinal Telesphore Toppo of Ranchi who completed his term in the office.

The annual plenary assembly gathered here at the Retreat House in the Marian pilgrim town of Vailankanni also re-elected archbishop Filipe Neri Ferrao of Goa and Bishop Varghese Chakkalakkal of Calicut as vice-president and secretary respectively for the consecutive second term.

Cardinal Gracias, elected for a second time as the leader of the Conference of Catholic Bishops of India (CCBI), is also the current president of the national forum of bishops of all three rites.

Cardinal Gracias also heads the Asian level bishops’ forum as the secretary general Federation Asian Bishops’ Conferences (FABC).

The 126 bishops’ meeting also marks the silver jubilee of their forum and the golden jubilee of the Vailankanni Basilica.

Cardinal Fernando Filoni, Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples and papal delegate to the meeting, attended valedictory meeting of the CCBI silver jubilee and the Golden Jubilee of the declaration of the Marian Shrine as a Minor Basilica (1962).
