“I feel sad when students go the wrong way” Archbishop tells students

Bengaluru, Feb 29: “I feel sad when I read in the newspapers that young boys and girls go the wrong way” Archbishop Dr. Bernard Moras told the convocation gathering at St. Germain`s High School, February 28th.  The Archbishop recounted the humiliation suffered by the former President of India in his early days but drew reference to his determination and commitment to character and honesty that lead him to secure “100 marks” in academics. “Faith in God and Faith in yourself” the Prelate said is “the binding force in character formation”.

Recalling the contribution of St. Germain School (Estd 1844) in the presence of its Director Rev. Fr. S. Jayanathan (Vicar General of the Archdiocese) and students the Archbishop Moras told students graduating “People today value character more than money and material”. The spiritual head of over 4 million Catholics in the Archdiocese of Bangalore Dr. Bernard Moras impressed upon the gathering that “You have been trained in an educational institution that values character above everything else”. The Archbishop spared no effort in rendering anecdotes to emphasize the need to become people of “honesty and sincerity”. Over 300 people gathered for the Convocation.
