The Visit of His Eminence Telesphore Cardinal Toppo to DBCMaram

By College Reportr
Dimapur, Feb. 22. Maram 22 February: 22nd February 2010 was a red-letter day for Don Bosco College, Maram, with presence of His Eminence Telesphore Cardianl Toppo, the Arch Bishop of Ranchi. ''This is the first time that a Cardianl has ever set foot in Maram'' said Fr. Benny James, the Principal of Don Bosco College in his welcome address.
The first-ever tribal cardinal of the Catholic Church was accorded a traditional welcome with the Naga warriors accompanying him.  The solemn mass at the jam-packed college auditorium began with the nimble steps of Naga lasses and lads.  The Cardinal exhorted the students to ''Live only for Jesus, love only Jesus and give only Jesus.''
The day also was marked with a grand cultural programme in honour of his Eminence. He appreciated the spectacular performances of the students at the show. He told the students that 'time is life' and challenged them 'to dream big and be the best.' Fr. James Poonthuruthil, the Salesian Provincial of Dimapur Province, speaking on the occasion explained about the role of the cardinal in the Catholic Church as the close collaborator of the Pope. The visit of the Cardinal will remain ever fresh in the heart and mind of every Bosconian.
