Headline: ASIA/SRI LANKA – The PMS National Director: “The Pontifical Mission Societies are at the service of the renewal of the universal Church”
Colombo – “First of all, I would like to thank the Holy Father for his message, for sharing his thoughts and showing a special interest in the Pontifical Mission Societies. The proposals formulated by the Pope are marked by an authentic missionary renewal and indicate a simpler and more practicable way for the path of the Church in the world. I find this aspect very useful for the reality of Sri Lanka and not only, as it underlines the fact that the PMS must be primarily a service tool for people”. This is what Father Basil Fernando, National Director of the Pontifical Mission Societies in Sri Lanka told Agenzia Fides, commenting on the Message that Pope Francis sent to the PMS last May 21.
