Archbishop Bernard Moras in his address told the students that they are the ‘Salt of the Earth & Light of the World’. They should work hard and thus strive to bring out their talent, abilities, intelligence to the fore. They were also asked to apply their talent with responsibility and become true leaders acting to the will of God, he said.
