On the solemn occasion of Good Friday and Easter weekend, Hon’ble Governor of Sikkim, Shri Shriniwas Patil and the First Lady Smt. Rajanidevi Patil join the prayer with the people of Sikkim.
Hon’ble Governor said: “Good Friday also called Easter Friday reminds us the great sacrifice of Lord Jesus for salvaging human virtues from the evil forces. We join the Christian Brethern worldwide to pay homage and respect to Jesus Christ for his selfless love towards humankind. The occasion which commemorates the crucifixion of Christ, his death at Calvary and resurrection is a constant reminder for all of us to have faith in almighty while we strive to serve the mankind. The world will continue to remain inspired by the life of Jesus Christ for many more millennia to come.
On this occasion, let us pledge to have more compassion and love towards our fellow beings. May the virtues of truth, righteousness and non violence triumph over the violence, hatred and feeling of indifference plaguing the contemporary world.
PRO to Governor
