The Diocese of Miao in north-east India’s Arunachal Pradesh state has started a Divine Mercy Prayer Chain, part of its programme during the current Jubilee Year of Mercy. “It is our way of participating in the Jubilee of Mercy event of the Universal Church,” said Fr. Jose Chemparathy, the Vicar General of Diocese. Miao Diocese has organized various spiritual events during the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy that Pope Francis has called for the universal Church from December 8, 2015 to November 20, 2016.
Salesian Bishop George Palipparambil of Miao has organized the Divine Mercy Prayer Chain across the diocese from April 1 to November 13, 2016, part of a series of initiatives to make the faithful experience God’s Mercy in a special way. The event was inaugurated in Miao with the special prayer and Divine Mercy chaplet in which many faithful participated. It included Adoration and Divine Mercy prayer in Neotan Parish and several other centres. Divine Mercy Chaplets will be recited in every centre of the 28 Parishes in the Diocese on different dates.
Bishop George offered a special prayer for the success of the Divine Mercy Prayer Chain. “We feel specially blessed by God as this year coincides with 10th Anniversary of the Diocese of Miao. We pray for God’s Mercy and blessings on all of us in the Diocese throughout this Jubilee,” he said.
Miao Diocese that is marking its 10th anniversary, has organized several Year of Mercy events. A retreat for catechists was organized from 25 to 29 April 2016 at Divine Renewal Retreat Centre, Margehrita, in which 350 catechists, woman leaders and youth leaders participated. Earlier, a retreat for priests, held at Bishop’s House in Miao from 29 February to 5 March, was preached by Fr. Panneer Selvam, one of the 762 Missionaries of Mercy from around the world officially commissioned by Pope Francis to forgive even the sins that are reserved for the Holy See to pardon. Another retreat for nuns working in Miao Diocese was held from 6 to 12 March.
