Chairman's Message



My Dear Brother Priests,

As the Chairman of the Commission for VSCR, I welcome you to this webpage for the CDPI. The reason this webpage exists is to provide you with an inside view to the Priesthood of Jesus Christ ans to keep you informed of the activities of the Commission. Besides, it is also a means to establish contacts with each other. The events and insights of Priests are provided as resources to help guide our discernment of a call to the Priesthood.

St. John Marie Vianney said that the Priesthood is "the love of the heart of Jesus." The hope of Pope Francis is that, through the intercession of the Cure of Ars, the love of Christ will grow abundantly in hearts of Priests throughout the world and through them to the faithful.

I am confident that Christ's love made visible in the heroic witness of our Priests in the Dioceses of India will not only inspire us, but also those who read this message to respond generously to God's call to the Priesthood.

Take a look around this site. Use the information to help your prayer and discernment. Ask the Blessed Mother to help you open your hearts completely to God. Allow the Holy Spirit to move in you.

With my cordial blessings,

Yours sincerely,

+Bishop Udumala Bala
Bishop of Warangal
Patron, Commission for VSCR
