INDIA - Card Gracias calls on Indians to fast and pray before the election to save democracy [AN]

For Mumbai archbishop, 700 million registered voters should “exercise his/her right and duty to vote and do so prudently, carefully and judiciously” because we must all “get involved in bettering the history, culture and destiny of our nation.” The Church does not side with any political party, but calls among other things on new leaders to “promote communal harmony and a spirit of inter-religious dialogue and understanding” and “Care for the minorities and weaker sections of society”.



I’d better get started. :slight_smile:

Praying hard.
