Robert Rosario not our official Catholic representative: Mangalore diocese


Media Release

Mangaluru, Mar 4: The Mangalore Christian diocese keeps distance from Robert Rosario who is portraying himself as a Catholic leader and participating in various media discussions without official permission, an official communique from the diocese of Mangalore has stated.

The diocese wishes to clarify that Robert Rosario has not been authorized or requested by the official authorities of the diocese to represent the Catholic community. Individuals can express their opinions and beliefs on their own, but to claim that Robert Rosario is a leader representing all Catholics is completely false and misleading, the media release states.

The diocese of Mangalore emphasizes that through this press release, Robert Rosario is acting in a personal capacity only. The diocese does not endorse his views or statements as a representative of the Catholic community. There is no claim that the relevant authorities of the diocese have given him official approval or authority. This is a complete lie, added the diocese.

Through the media release, the Mangalore diocese takes this opportunity to remind the public and the media that only persons duly appointed and recognized by official diocesan authorities have the authority to speak on behalf of the Catholic community. Any representation to the contrary must be considered misinformation and will not be accepted by the diocese, it has clarified.

The media and public have been requested to distance themselves from Robert Rosario to prevent him from making unauthorized statements as a representative of the Catholic community. Mangalore Christian diocese has hereby declared that it is committed to disseminate accurate information only through authorized persons who are sure to represent the faith and beliefs of its members.

For further clarifications competant authorities from the diocese may be contacted.

    I heard his interview he spoke truth.. every time the new priest will comes to any parish he want to built something or other(new building/New home etc), then he will give pressure to parish people to give this much money. if priest house/ building is even not 10 years old also they don't hesitate to break and build new one. In the name of religion some priest will make max money and go.

    If our community leaders went there and consoled the elderly couple, would Robert Rosario get a chance to pierce his nose there? The day after Robert Rosario went to console the elderly couple, It was announced that he is not our official leader. Why were we not aware when he was talking about Christians before?

    The elderly couple collaborated with Rozario to slander the priest. As soon as the elderly couple saw the Omni car, they quickly closed the gate to prevent the priest's car from exiting. The priest pleaded with the elderly couple to let him go, explaining that he had other home visits scheduled. However, the elderly couple used derogatory language about the priest, infuriating him. Enraged, the priest caught hold of the oldman.

    If the elderly couple had blocked his car then the priest could have reached for help like calling police, calling neighbours etc. If a priest being so educated can behave like a goon then what do you expect from teenagers and younger generation? In today's era where there are mobile phones, it would have not been a difficult task to do.

    You come here to puthur and i will take you to their house. U speak to them and find out the answrs. Why you or church PRO's didn't visit old couple's house? Robert Rosario went. How u can connect this its a pre planned issue? If such things happen with your parents (if you have respect to them and valuing what they did 2u) or your sisters, wife, children, close relatives, would you comment da same way? How priest car was parked inside the compound?how come priest is seen running n dragging the old uncle from their gate ? Priest must have spoken in an abusive way so they must hav replied in that same tone since dey r much elder to him. Whatever it is, does anyone has right to assault kick anyone ? There's no solution? See interview with cine kudla. She had gone to church on sept 2nd and priest didnt accept money saying get out.

    Good decision in telling us about this individual. We were not aware. However some of his points are very valid and needs introspection Financial management : There is a clear lack of Governance & transparency Some parish priests act like Don’s and harass people. Training, counseling and anger management is recommended. Make provisions for role change and exit path. Diocese should make every effort to address these to create inclusion. When someone is a cretic try and understand the root cause, be open to correct and move on. Let's work together to build a stronger Diocese.

    Robert Rosario does not speak everything correctly, he generalizes all priests and nuns which is wrong. But some points which he said in his last interview are true, and when people speak facts or truth in our Diocese they are always disowned. Be it in any church or in the Diocese, when someone speaks aloud, he is sidelined or made a anti Christian. It is a fact that, the Priests are always right ? They do not do any wrong and people are there to support them even when they do wrong, and this is the reason they are becoming worse.

    robert rosario is a paid stooge of the rss. this fellow said in one interview that after every mass in church the priests ask the faithfuls against other religions. i go to church since my childhood and i am 60 now. have never heard such a thing. even before elections the priests just say that cast your votes and pray that we get good leaders. if anyone has heard priests asking to vote for any particular party reply me here.

    I agree with your points. Not everything are in Black and white. Same thing happenned with Sowjanyas case. Some voices that were raised in Padmalatha, Vedvalli Murder case were silenced because at that time airing views against the powerful religious leaders was considered sacrilegious. This became a such a thing that Religious leaders thought they were everything and they were the Law. So any voice against an accepted beleif should also be analysed to see if there is some truth in it .

    Referring to Priests and High Priests, Jesus said, do what they preach but don't live their life because, when the time comes, they will have to give the account of their actions 10 times more than you do. That's the truth. In any community, there are black sheep's among priests, sages etc. as they too are human beings and they do have their weaknesses. The Church, most of the time is very vocal in taking care of such elements. We don't need outcasts like this man to tell us what is right and wrong with the church.

    The Catholic Church in Mangalore MUST have an official spokesman. Their silence will encourage others to speak up and then rumours and gossip will be the order the day. I not for or against anyone, just stating that the community needs guidance when it is at crossroads. One such incidence was celebration of Tipu Shaitan Jayanti by the Congress Government. Why was there not a single comment from the Church. We lost over 50,000 Men, Women and Children during our 15 years in captivity, and over 90% of the community today, are descendants of the survivors of this Holocaust.
