Called to live, to grow and to witness


               God our loving Father, you are the giver of all good gifts. We thank and praise you for sharing new life through your son Jesus Christ. On the occasion of the Diamond Jubilee of Bellary Diocese, we are ever grateful to you for the life of faith we received.

               We pray that you bless the Diocese of Bellary, its departed and living Bishops, Priests, the Religious, catechists, and the lay faithful for witnessing to the Catholic faith. Loving Father, bless us that we may grow in abundance faith and become living witnesses of Jesus Christ.

                Grant that we may proclaim your life-giving good news in our families, parishes, institutions and in the interior diocese. May equality and fraternity be reflected in all our activities. May this celebration instill in us a new life, a new spirit and a new enthusiasm.

                O blessed Mother, through the Jubilee Celebration, intercede that we may proclaim the abundant life offered to us in Christ Jesus.

                 St. Anthony our patron, pray for us.

                 Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the Father...
