In the Morning worship he also exhorted the students to be like St. Joseph who had a lot of problems and was able to solve them with the help of God.
After the morning worship he interacted with the hostel girls and shared a thought on the need to face problems and find ways to resolve them. Reflecting the the ChristChurch Massacre in New Zealand, he said that this murderer had problems and was not resolve them.
One of the victim was a woman whose husband forgave the murder from his heart saying that he wants to end the violence as the murderer himself must have a lot unsolved problems.
All of you look very gentle and peace loving young people, but if we do not accept the problems and find a way to solve them, we may also behave in totally unacceptable ways.
Therefore, it is important to acknowledge the problems be it in relationship, appearance, studies, etc, as people of equanimous mind, get help from elders and educators to resolve them speedily.
