Sharing Faith Experiences – Cardinal Telesphore Toppo

Welcome to our special program on the Year of Faith, THE FAITHFUL WITNESS, a series on the lives of Inspiring People and Witnesses of faith in the Catholic Church from around the world. These are people who lived their ordinary lives in extraordinary ways. They are examples of great fortitude and virtue. Their unique stories inspire us to be rooted in our faith. God calls each one of us today to inspire our brothers and sisters and to be witnesses of our faith.
The Faithful Witness of this week is Cardinal Telesphore Toppo. He is the Cardinal-Archbishop of Ranchi Archdiocese in the Eastern Indian state of Jharkhand, and is the first Oraon Adivasi (tribal) Indian Cardinal. As a priest, bishop and Cardinal living and working among the mostly Tribal people, he faced many challenges in his life and mission.
Our Faithful Witness of today, Cardinal Telesphore Toppo from India shares with us his faith experiences, inspirations, and the challenges he faced in his life and mission. Cardinal, we are very happy to have you with us today. A very hearty welcome to you to Vatican Radio.

    Tell us who inspired you to take this faithful journey – your vocation to priesthood?
    In a sense, even before you were ordained a priest, you were sharing your faith in a dramatic way!
    In this year of faith, what is your message to Christians in India or in Asia?

Thank you Cardinal. That was Cardinal Telesphore Toppo, Cardinal-Archbishop of Ranchi Archdiocese, India sharing his faith experiences.
