Goa’s Archbishop Filipe Neri Cardinal Ferrao's New Year Message:
“I am pleased to convey to everyone my warm greetings and best wishes as we usher into the New Year of 2023, which comes to us as a precious gift from God. Newness comes not with the destruction of the present, but by its transformation.
“Let us work for a new beginning that honours our heritage and our present achievements and builds on them by preserving the good that already exists, that is, our land – the natural beauty, our unique Goan culture, our communal harmony and our values, which urge us to be more sensitive towards the voices and needs of the common people.
“Invoking God's blessings and wishing you all a Happy New Year.”
