On Divine Mercy Sunday (28th of April), after a week since the series of deadly explosions in Sri Lanka, Catholic faithful remained in their homes without gathering in their familiar parish churches for Sunday Holy Mass. His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith televised the Sunday Mass from the Archbishop’s House while commemorating the death victims of Easter Sunday attacks.
In his inspiring Sunday homily, which was simultaneously telecasted on all the Local Television Channels, Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith stressed, the significance of each human person born in this world. “Every single person whom God has given to us is a reflection of his love and mercy, because this person, whom we meet or whom we do not know yet, whom we meet on the road, at a workplace, the school, is a person who can carry a million blessings to us,” stated the Archbishop of Colombo.
His Eminence continued his trilingual homily inviting all to extend a hand of friendship and fraternity to all our brothers and sisters accepting each other in love and mercy despite of their class, race, religion or anything else that seem to differentiate us. Cardinal Archbishop further stressed, “God has given us all our brothers and sisters. It is a contradiction and an insult to kill someone in the name of God; God who is merciful, God who is all love, and God who has created my brother and my sister.”
