Present Priests are doing a very good job! So far, people were unaware of the existance of 'Mangalore University Chair in Christianity' though 25years are completing. Congratulations dear Dr. Rev. Fr. J.B. Saldanha. You, having a lot of responsibilities , being a Professor, Secretary of MCC, conducting these programmes one after the other within a short period, is marvellous! Priests like you we need to deliver the message , which we are still in dark. In your great responsibility, wish you A great Success dear Father.
One thing, we lay people must realize, PRIESTS are also HUMAN BEINGS. In their several & Great Responsibilities they also can forget few things which are not so important wearing a cassock in a press meet, if in holy places they should. so let us remind them but in person or through some of our priests friends. Then it sounds much better.

Very few people are aware of the Chair in Christianity at the Mangalore University. There is need to bring out a paper on the role it has played during last twentyfive years.The head of the chair, if he was priests rob would have added better presention.
