India’s “gutter priest” passes away

Light of truth

Fr George Koottickal, who founded a pious association to care for vagabonds and deranged people, died in the early hours of December 20. He was 64. The founder director of the Friends of the Birds of the Air (FBA) was undergoing treatment for some time for liver disease at a private hospital in Ernakulam. He was discharged mid December, but his condition deteriorated while recovering at Marvallah Dayara Ashram in Malayattoor, Kerala.
