BISHOP CAMILLO BALLIN MCCJ
Apostolic Vicar of Northern Arabia
Dear brothers and sisters of the St. Thomas Syro-Malabar Church in Qatar,
I am happy to address to you my short and simple words on the occasion of the opening of the website of your Church. No doubt that this technological means can be of a great help to keep all your brothers and sisters informed and updated about your initiatives and various activities, as it is like a daily newspaper accessible to all.
I see in this website a source of unity among all of you. So, pay attention that it be really a way towards more communion and more unity in your Syro-Malabar Church in Qatar. Any attempt towards disunity is a grave sin against Jesus who prayed fervently for the unity of his disciples: "Let they may be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you" (In 17:21).
I thank and congratulate all those of you who work for your website. May the Lord reward you for the time you offer for the good of his Church. Through the intercession of Our Lady of Arabia, the patroness of our Vicariate, I invoke over you all the blessings of God.
