cartisBangalore, September 22, 2014: Caritas India has resolved to bring about an attitudinal change in the organization as well as at community levels for entrusting ownership of development action to the community.

The decision was taken at the Caritas’ National Assembly held in Bangalore last week.

By declaring to adhere to the principle of subsidiarity, the diocesan directors of social apostolate also resolved to accompany and support the development process of people by playing a facilitating role.

Caritas India’s executive director Fr. Frederick D’Souza called the heads of the member organization to shift role from directors to animators.

He called Pope Francis as one of the greatest animators of the present time with “highest Twitter followers, after US President Obama”.

While clarifying concerns that the assembly is not held in the pretext of the post the general election scenario in the country, Fr. D’Souza said “Caritas has a mandate from Jesus and we are not afraid of the emerging political scenario”.

Taking support from the health sector he said, “70,000 hospital beds across the country is a huge, huge responsibility” shouldered by the Church and nobody can deny that.”
