Though a small Diocese, Diocese of Varanasi is in a significant way a picture of Mother India. The very name of this Holy City conjures up the apex of the spirit's endeavour in Hinduism. Sarnath reminds us of Dharma Chakra Pravartana of the Buddha. The two districts, in the west and to the east, Jaunpur and Ghazipur, evoke a pair of twin and refined kingdoms of the Muslim era. The history of the diocese remembers with gratefulness the outcome of the Capuchin missionary endeavour to Tibet in the 1700's, as an epic in the history of the Church.
The value of intellectual humility
It is a good tradition that we have May Devotion to Mother Mary in the month of May. Make the ‘Marialaya’ the point of attraction during the month.
During summer vacation, please make sure that your parish / school / station is well attended to and is active with camps etc. It is a good time to clear up the common store and shelves and update the inventory. It would be edifying that all are back to station well in time before school commencing.

We must motivate students to attend summer school of music and dance, BA in Nav Sadhana Kalakendra, GNM in St. Mary’s Varanasi and Fatima, Mau. Some guidance and preparation for entrance test will certainly help them.
