altBELLARY, SEP 18: Over 250 Catholic youth from the city of Bellary met for a prayer meeting at Christ the King Church and declared to be “friends of Jesus” here today.

The prayer meeting was organized by a group of Catholic youth who call themselves Soldiers of Christ.

In his message to the youth, Bishop of Bellary Henry D’Souza reminded the youth that Jesus has “called them his friends” and he desires that they always remain his friends.

“Only the friendship of Jesus will bring lasting joy to the youth and make their lives meaningful and abundantly successful”, stated Bishop D’Souza.

“The fiends of Jesus, in order to remain his friends need to follow his commandments and bear witness to his life and teachings”, reminded the Bishop.

During the meeting, some of the youth shared their “Jesus experience” and testified as to how they have turned to Jesus.

Earlier the local parish priest Fr. Denis Menezes welcomed the gathering and the youth animator Sr. Joan Mary thanked everyone.
