Mangaluru, Feb 8: The theme for the third day of novena was 'Word of in our hearts on our lips and to give witness to Christ through our tongue'.
The novena mass for the relic feast of St Anthony was held at Milagres Church by Fr Chethan Lobo OFM Cap, the editor of sevak monthly magazine. Through different biblical examples, he pointed how one should bear witness to Christ through the tongue. Fr J B Crasta con-celebrated the mass.
At the end of the mass Fr Larry Pinto conducted the novena in honour of St Anthony during which special prayers were offered for all the nurses and doctors. Members of Urwa parish sang and joined in thanksgiving.
