Indian Catholic Forum

Dear Friend,

As you are probably aware the Indian Catholic Forum has had to indefinitely postpone the proposed gathering in Bangalore in February in preparation for the Synod; because of the Corona resurgence. The next best way of determining the Sensus Fidei (Sense of the Faithful) that Pope Francis refers to, is by an online Survey. We had in all probability sent you the link to the Survey earlier, and some of you may have responded to it. Thank you.

However, we still need many more responses to make it truly reflective of the Sensus Fidei. Hence I am resending the link as shown below. Please access it, if not done so already, and submit it online. It is completely confidential. Once the form is submitted there is no way that we can trace the respondent.

I also humbly request you to please forward this email to other Catholics in India who are on your mailing list, with the fervent request to please help in this synodal exercise. Please note that Pope Francis says that the voices of those on the margins or even those who have “left” the church are equally important. So we fervently request those who have, for whatever reason, stopped going to Church, to please use this golden opportunity to express yourselves.

A word in confirmation will be deeply appreciated. I thank you in anticipation of your kind co-operation and wish you and yours a blessed New Year.

Speaking Out with One Unified Global Voice

"...Until we raise a common voice, we will not only not be heard, we will not even be listened to....   

My hope is that by speaking out together - a strong chorus of calls for reform - we can provide a common, a clear, a strong and ongoing voice for the yet incomplete vision of Vatican II.

In common cause, let us band together across the world. By our desire to be heard on particular issues - all of them important - let us not lose the strength of our common voice by reducing it to a whisper.

In light of this, we invite individuals and organizations to join together in making known our opinions for the good of our Church. By uniting our voices, it is not about abandoning the unique work of your organization but rather about how your work can enhance global reform."

Sr. Joan Chittister, CCRI Special advisor

"We have to join our forces in order to reach a real breakthrough in this window of opportunity." Hans Kung, CCRI Consultor

"When spider webs unite, they can tie up a lion." [Ethiopian proverb]

"Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable." [Kenyan proverb]

"(The Christian faithful) have the right and even at times the duty to manifest to the sacred pastors their opinion on matters which pertain to the good of the Church and to make their opinion known to the rest of the Christian faithful." (Canon 212 §3)

CCRI is also interested in helping support various causes in regions of the world by garnering the support of our entire global community for those who need support beyond their parish, organization, or locale.
