  1. I hope soon other Dioceses will have their own helping task forces. This is the time to show in deeds what Christ has said and what is preached. The Dioceses should reach out to poor patients. I just came across the comments of Bishop in northern India that even after having a diocesan hospital, he couldn’t arrange for beds. This is not justified.
