Update: 8.34 pm

Udupi, Oct 15: The grand event has come to an end. Udupi is now a diocese, and Dr Gerald Isaac Lobo its first bishop. It was a fitting ceremony to mark the historic day, a day which the present generation was fortunate to witness.


Update: 8.32 pm

Fr Stany Lobo proposed the vote of thanks. The event was compered by Vincent Alva and Mabel D'Souza.

Bishop of Mangalore Dr Aloysius D'Souza was honoured on the occasion. Fr Fred Mascarenhas read the felicitation letter.

Acknowledging the honour, Dr Aloysius said that when he first came to know that Udupi was going to be a diocese, a dream had come true.

"When Pope Benedict XVI sent the official letter, he said 'your dream has become a reality,'" he said.


 

"I never felt that Udupi was too heavy a duty for me, but I couldn't look after the social, economical and educational development of Udupi the same way as I did of Mangalore, though I tried my best," he said.

"Today Udupi has got a talented bishop who has 13 years of experience as bishop of Shimoga. I am giving a part of heart (Udupi) to the new bishop," he added.

"My wish is that we do not differentiate between Mangalore and Udupi just because they are different dioceses. Our culture remains the same and we should be as united as before," he urged.

He thanked Valerian D'Souza, who served as episcopal vicar of Udupi for six years and Fr Baptist Menezes who has been the episcopal vicar for the last five years.

He requested the Catholics of Udupi to remember him in their prayers.

Political leaders U R Sabhapathy, Vasanth Salian, Ivan D'Souza and Gopal Bhandary felicitated the new bishop

Fr David Crasta who represented Brahmavar Syrian diocese also honoured him with a garland.

 

Update: 8.03 PM

Bishop Dr Gerald Lobo in his address said, "God has blessed us with a new diocese and has given me the previlige to serve Him as the first bishop. Udupi has got an enviable legacy of faith. We have lot of challenges in front of us because as it is a new diocese."

He remembered the late bishop Basil D'Souza of Mangalore and said that it was his dream to see Udupi as a diocese. He also thanked Mangalore bishop Dr Aloysius D'Souza for making it possible and said, "I am indebted to both of you."

He thanked Sri Sugunendrateertha Swamiji for gracing the programme and extended his wholehearted support towards fostering peace and communal harmony in the district. "Together we will build a peaceful Udupi district," he said.

"Youth are our strength and our elders are our inspiration and guide," he said, urging people's support in building the new diocese.

Fr Gerald Isaac Lobo, the newly-appointed bishop was formally felicitated by Apostolic Nuncio Dr Salvotore Pennacchio, Dr Bernard Moras, Dr Ignatius Pinto, Dr Aloysius Paul D'Souza, bishop of Mangalore, on behalf of the laity Leslie Lewis, vice-president, Milagres Cathedral Pastoral Council, on behalf of the nuns, Sr Shaila AC, superior, St Cecily's Convent, Udupi, on behalf of the priests Fr Lawrence Rodrigues.

Parish priest of Yermal, Fr Felix Noronha, past vicar general of Shimoga Diocese, on behalf of the family, Jessy Lobo, sister of Dr Gerald Isaac Lobo felicitated the bishop of Udupi by garlanding him.

Apostolic Nuncio Dr Salvotore Pennacchio presented blessed candles to the donors who contributed more than Rs 1 lac.

Apolistic Nuncio of India Dr Salvatore Pennacchio said, "I will convey the gratitude to Holy Father. I have experienced hospitality of the people of Udupi and I am moved by the amount of faith among the devotees."

"Do not be afraid, for God is with you," he told the new bishop.

 

Update: 7.48 pm

Oscar Fernandes in his address thanked bishop of Mangalore Dr Aloysius Paul D'Souza for taking care of Udupi people in all their needs. He pledged his support to the new bishop in his new mission. "In Udupi Catholics contribute to temples and Hindus to Churchs. Even Muslim brothers have contributed toward Udupi temple's Lakshadeepotsava . We have to carry on in the same way in future also," he said.
 
Udupi district incharge minister Kota Srinivas Poojary said, "I am grateful to the services rendered by the Catholic community to society. We join in congratulating the community today. Today the Pope has given us a small girl child. I promise on behalf of the Udupi district administration that we will take care of this girl baby."

MLA Raghupati Bhat said, "This day and this wonderful programme will be go into the golden annals of Udupi's history. It is pleasure and good fortune to be part of this wonderful event, which is once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. So far no untoward incident has crossed Mulky border, this is becuase of the harmony among the people and communities of Udupi."

He further said, "We cannot forget the services rendered by the Catholic community in health and education fields, where they have reached the very last person in society. I am blessed to be the MLA of Udupi constituency which is now under Udupi diocese. I had been on a tour to Rome in 2009, and am blessed to be part of the Eucharist celebration of the Pope."

Addressing the gathering, N B Aboobakker said, "The period of life between birth and death is very important and short. We must reach the last person in the society and do our best to bring them to the mainstream."

On behalf of the 1.25 lac people of Udupi diocese, Veronica Cornelio congratulated Bishop Dr Gerald Lobo and said, "We will be with you in all your missions in the development of Udupi diocese, be it social or religious work."

 

Update: 6.53 pm

Sri Sugunendrateertha Swamiji of Puttige Math in his address conveyed the message of harmony and peace and said, "Today I see people of all religions gathered here. This occasion has brought all of us together and created communal harmony amongst us."

He further said, "Everybody should follow their own dharma, only then there can be peace. When people go against dharma, violence erupts."

Stressing that Udupi has given space for all religions to exist and grow, he said, "God is omnipresent, no one can claim that God belongs to any one religion."

Conveying Sri Krishna's message, he said that there should be unity among all religions and that inter-faith dialogues are necessary to foster unity and harmony.

"There are various similarities between religions. We should uphold the similarities and forget the differences. When we do that, there will not be any fight in the name of religion."

To stress his point on similarities, he said, "Sripadaru for Hindus and Father for Christians mean the same."

"Today in Udupi we have two Paryayas," he declared, much to the appreciation of the crowd.

Speaking earlier, MP Jayaprakash Hegde appreciated bishop Dr Gerald Lobo's statement 'I swear by faith and development,' and said that there can be no better words than these. He also lauded the bishop for his work and said that he is a humanitarian who had brought school dropouts back to classes and extended financial help to those in need of medical treatment.

It is good to see all people taking part in the opening of a new diocese and installation of a new Bishop for Udupi. It is much more pleasant to see non-catholic religious and other leaders also taking part and wishing well. That means there is no enemity between religions and their practices and a lot of goodwill and tolerance for every religion. The best part was Shree Sugunendra Theertha Swamijis observation "Today in Udupi we have two Paryayas" This is my India, Jai Bharath Matha.

I Salute Catholic Institutions for their Outstanding Service to the Mankind irrespective of caste whether he is OBC/SC/ST. Today many have come up in their lives and have already became the leaders of India through the education delivered by Catholic Institution, when OBC/SC/ST where deprived of schools & colleges and also not allowed to go to Schools & Colleges due to untouchability and discrimination practiced by some section of the society. Even today these section are practicing Untouchability and Discrimination. Now those who have pursued education from these institutions have set up their own educational institutions in coastal karnataka, other places of India as well as outside India.
