Mangaluru, Feb 7:Fr Keneth Crasta, principal of St Joseph Industrial Training Centre Jeppu, celebrated the Holy Mass on the second day of the novena.

In his homily Fr Crasta preached homily on respecting the elderly, the theme of the day. He said, "Long life is considered as the blessing of God in the Bible. Elderly people are like a treasure in the house. They are to be respected and cared. Unfortunately todays society treats them like useless commodity. That thinking has to be changed."
