Archbishop of Goa & Daman Filipe Neri Ferrao greets Goans on eve of Ganesh Chaturthi

Panaji, Sep 12 (UNI) Archbishop of Goa and Daman Filipe Neri Ferrao on Wednesday extended his best wishes to the people of Goa on the eve of Ganesh Chaturthi Festival which is to be celebrated across the state on September 13.
In a message, he said, ''It is feast time, once again, when our Hindu brothers and sisters observe Ganesh Chaturthi. It is an occasion of special joy, as they experience the visit of the deity to their homes. No wonder this joy overflows in the exchange of greetings and goodies with their dear and near ones.''
''We take particular note that Ganesh is venerated as an icon of wisdom, tenderness, compassion and prosperity. While sharing in the joy of our Hindu brethren, we also pray that these high qualities may be instilled in every member of the Goan society, so that they may serve to strengthen the fabric of tolerance, cooperation and mutual help which have characterized our society for centuries. We will then be able to journey, side by side, as partners for the progress and prosperity of our beloved Goa, so as to build a Great India,'' he said.
