The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India extends its warmest greetings to all the Muslim brethren in India as they celebrate Bakrid (Eid al-Adha), the festival of sacrifice, this day. May this feast which recalls the commitment, obedience and self-sacrificing spirit of Abraham and marks the climax of the traditional Hajj continue to inspire not just the Muslims but all of us, the believers, to genuinely live by our religious beliefs and to spread the message of universal brotherhood and sisterhood living in mutual respect, sacrifice, cooperation and peace!
