A man of God

As a parishioner of Our Lady of Salvation Church, Dadar, I was shocked and deeply saddened to hear of the sudden death of Rev. Fr Francis Lobo, CSSR.

The first point that strikes me about Rev. Fr Francis is that he was a man of God, a man of prayer, a man who placed spirituality in the first place and rightly so. One closer to Christ.

He was a loving priest. He was a silent and calm priest and of great encouragement to all who approached him. His motto was "Truth and the love of God and neighbor."

As a perfect example of a Christian life, the richness and fullness of Christ was embodied in his personality, soft-spoken and humble to the core which exuded fullness of spirituality. This elevated his leadership to the highest level as a shepherd to his flock.
