I wish tangible success of the CCI conference currently going on. The conference is one of the good initiatives to spread and live Cardijn spirit.
DEAR STEFAN, RUBEN AND PARTICIPANTS TO THE V2 CONFERENCE,
ON BEHALF OF MY FAMILY AND CCI FRIENDS HERE IN JAMSHEDPUR I WOULD LIKE TO WISH EACH ONE OF YOU GREAT DELIBERATIONS
AT THE V2 CONFERENCE IN MANILA. LET THIS CONFERENCE BE A TURNING POINT IN THE LIVES OF ALL OF US AND THE LAITY ALL OVER THE
WORLD, SO THAT THE MESSAGES OF VATICAN COUNCIL - II COULD BE UNDERSTOOD AND ABSORBED BY ALL THOSE WHO ARE COMMITTED TOWARDS WORKING FOR THE POOR AND THE MARGINALISED.
IN SOLIDARITY !

Let me at the outset wish all the participants a great seminar on Vatican II.
I am sending my own article published recently in the journal 'Indian Church History Review' (ICHR). You may even keep it in the folder as a background
material. The article is about the 'Impact of Gaudium et Spes on the IYCW and IMCS'.
I am also attaching a news item from the Calcutta Herald wherein the correspondent of the TIME has mentioned how he covered the Vatican II as a journalist.
Please share it with others.
Wish the seminar every success and let the year of faith help us to see the gift of faith in the context of Asia where we have to create a new social contract with the state and closer alliance with other religions and cultures.
Thanks and Regards
Bernard D' Sami
