One month ago today ...

... some 200 people were ripped apart while traveling home from work in Bombay.

Bishop Penha, the Apostolic Administrator of Bombay, called for a special month's mind Mass today.
s people in Mumbai remember the bomb blasts that killed some 200 people in their city a month ago, Catholics would join in a Mass today to pray for the victims and their families.

Auxiliary Bosco Penha will lead the memorial service today for the victims along with Auxiliary Bishops Agnelo and Percival Fernandes and families of the victims of bomb blasts.

Some 200 people, at least eight of them Catholics, were killed and hundreds wounded on July 11 when bombs exploded at seven local railway stations in the city.

The months mind service, coundeucted in the evening to ensure greater particiaption, will also pray for God's protection on the city of Mumbai. The 7 p.m., service will be at Our Lady of Salvation Church, Dadar.
[Didn't think Bishop Penha can still be correctly called "Auxilliary"!]
