Inter Religious Prayer Service
A Silver Lining

Held on the 9th of October, 2020, the SJBHS Inter Religious Prayer Service, held online, re-iterated the theme of ‘Hope and Faith’ and was the harbinger of just one message –
‘All religions have one language – the language of love, to forgive one another and to live in harmony.’
Our Principal, Fr Sunil Fernandes SJ, the Vice Principal Mr. Uday Kumar and the Primary School Administrator Rev Fr Joel Fernandes SJ lit the symbolic lamp to usher in a milieu of calm and peace. The prayer dance created a symphony of emotions. Fr Sunil, in his message, urged the stakeholders of SJBHS to renew and revitalise their faith in humanity, to keep an open mind and to live as good human beings in order to get closer to God.
The prayer service continued with readings from the holy texts: Bhagwad Gita, Tripitakas, Quran, Jain Agamas, Bible and Guru Granth Sahib. The readings and translations were interspersed with songs in English, Hindi and Kannada. A staff member communicated the essence of hope and faith, of unity and of patience in understanding the works of the Almighty.
In the end of the virtual inter religious prayer service, the Covid-19 frontline workers were remembered, prayed for and thanked for their yeoman services rendered during the contagion. The closing Hindi song brought to mind the power of prayer, the faith in the Almighty and the hope that all would be well.
