Pure Drinking Water Purifier for Public launched at Fatima Retreat House
Mangaluru: According to Matthew 25:31-40 in Holy Bible -” “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, “I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you as a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” Following these words from the Bible, Fatima Retreat House (FRH), Mangaluru in memory of Late Fr Walter Stephen Andrade Sj who passed away recently on 26 August 2020, his family members donated purified drinking water purifier for the public, installed on the wall of FRH. “I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink”- and now onwards, passing by pedestrians and motorists can quench their thirst by using this pure filtered water.
