In a sermon of a different kind, a Catholic priest addressed members of Muslim community inside a mosque, thanking them for selflessly feeding the flood victims who had taken shelter at his church.Father Sanu Puthussery, a Catholic priest, addressed around 250 members of Muslim community inside a mosque, thanking them for "selflessly" feeding the 580 flood-hit families who had taken shelter at his church.
“I cannot express my gratitude to them in words. That much help and support they had extended during the time of difficulties,” he said.Besides food and water, the youth attached to the mosque also arranged for medicines, he said. “I went to the Masjid to meet the maulvi and other authorities and thank them personally. But they invited me to their prayer hall and offered me their platform to speak...,” the priest said. It was a different experience for over 250 believers, who were present at the mosque to offer Friday prayers.
“Pope Francis had said build bridges, not walls. The devastating floods has now given us an opportunity to destroy the walls and build the bridges of togetherness,” the priest added.
