Sun, May 11, 2014, 09:25 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

May 11, Colombo: Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa called on the Most Reverend Cardinal Dr. Malcolm Ranjith at the Bishop's House on Saturday (May 10) , the President's office said in a statement today.

The Cardinal has just returned to the country following a visit to the Vatican earlier this month leading a delegation of bishops of 11 dioceses to participate in the quinquennial ad Limina Apostolorum.

Pope Francis addressing the bishops of Sri Lanka encouraged the Catholic Church of Sri Lanka in its effort towards national reconciliation, saying that even though the nearly 26-year old war ended in 2009, much needs to be done towards ‎reconciliation, respect for human rights and true peace.
