Is the CBCI stumbling over Delhi diocese's gesture to Modi?
The decision to invite the Prime Minister to the joint celebration staged by the Faridabad Eparchy and the Delhi diocese to honor the new saints Fr. Kuriakose Chavara and Sr. Euprasia has caused confusion among the Indian bishops. The CBCI has openly declared that it will not be party to the event planned for the 17th of February 2015 at Vijnan Bhavan.
There is rumor spreading that the invitation is to win the BJP to the Christian Minorities by soothing its miserable flop at the Delhi Assembly election of the past week. The hosts probably want to win the BJP and its leader who has not reacted to the recent attacks on the Christian Churches in the capital.
