UDUPI : The 91st Death Anniversary of Ven. Fr Agnelo D’Souza at Milagres Cathedral of Udupi Diocese near here on Tuesday, November 20, 2018 with devotion and gaiety.



The Solemn Eucharistic mass was concelebrated by Very Rev Fr Dr. Lawrence C D’Souza, Rector of Milagres Cathedral, Dean of Kallianpur Deanery and Secretary of CESU along with Rev Fr John Bannet, Superior of Pilar Fathers Minor Seminary, Kallianpur, Rev Fr. Henry D’Souza, Parish priest of Salethur Church, Mangaluru Diocese, Deanery Priests, guest priests and Pilar Father community priests from 10.30 am.

In his homily Fr Henry pointed out the life of Ven. Fr. Agnelo D’Souza of Goa and how he spread the light of God. He was very simple in his life and gave goodness to the faithful people. His life was not known for anything spectacular nor extraordinary, but he did ordinary things in an extraordinary way. Characteristically, he grew up manifesting qualities of gentleness, of love and purity, humility and obedience combined with strong sense of self discipline. He was not given too much talking, unlike the boys of his age, and usually preferred silence and prayer.



Fr. Henry D’Souza said that Fr. Agnelo had set his sights high in the service of God and aimed at cultivating assiduously all the priestly virtues. Fr. Agnelo was also an impressive preacher not because of any flourish of rhetoric but because every word he spoke from the pulpit came out from the depths of his heart.

Agnelo.
