Alejandro Goić (bishop)

Alejandro Goić Karmelić is a Chilean bishop of the Roman Catholic Church. He was the bishop of the Diocese of Rancagua from 2004 to 2018, he was President of the Chilean Conference of Bishops from 2004 to 2010. He was an auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Concepción and the Bishop of the Diocese of Osorno. Alejandro Goić Karmelić born in the city of Punta Arenas on 7 March 1940, the son of a family of Croatian immigrants, from the island of Brač, Dalmatia, his father was Pedro Goić and his mother Margarita Karmelić. Goic learned to read at a rural school, continued his studies at the Instituto Don Bosco and the Liceo Salesiano in Punta Arenas, he joined the Metropolitan Seminary of Concepción, where he studied philosophy, the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, where he studied theology. Goic was ordained to the priesthood on 12 March 1966 in Punta Arenas, by the man who motivated him to explore his priestly vocation, the bishop of the diocese, Vladimiro Boric. While in the Diocese of Punta Arenas, Goic served as the priest of Our Lady of Fatima parish and the chaplain of the penitentiary in Punta Arenas, until 1973.

In March 1973, he was appointed Vicar-General of Punta Arenas by Bishop Boric. Upon Boric's death, Goic went on to serve in the post of vicar capitular until the Holy See appointed a bishop for the diocese; the appointment went to Msgr. Tomas Gonzalez, Goic continued on as vicar general until May 1979. During those years, Father Goic participated in the negotiations that the Catholic Church in Chile made with their counterparts in Argentina, in order to avoid a military conflict in the year 1978. Between 1975 and 1976, he continued courses in theology at the Abbey of Saint Andrew in Bruges, Belgium. Pope John Paul II appointed Goic the titular Bishop of Africa, auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of Concepción, he received episcopal consecration at Rome, on 27 May 1979. On 30 June 1991, Goic was transferred from his ecclesiastical jurisdiction, this time as auxiliary bishop for the Diocese of Talca; this appointment lasted until 1994, when he was appointed Bishop of Diocese of Osorno. On 10 July 2003, Pope John Paul II appointed him a coadjutor bishop for the Diocese of Rancagua—a coadjutor bishop performs the same functions as an auxiliary bishop, but is entitled to succession when the office becomes vacant.

Thus, with the resignation of Bishop Javier Prado Aránguiz, Goic took over as the ordinary bishop of the Diocese of Rancagua. He held that post starting in 2004, is the President of the Chilean Conference of Bishops. In 2007, Goic was approved for three years in that office. Pope Francis accepted his resignation on 28 June 2018. One of the main concerns of Goic's years as a priest has been social issues, his special sensitivity to the issues of poverty and social justice originate with a deep identification with the sufferings of Jesus Christ and the principles of the Gospel. During the 1980s, when Goic was auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Concepción, he decided to visit Father Enrique Moreno Laval, a vicar in the Lota coal mining area, in order to familiarize himself with the situation of native workers demanding labor improvements. In turn, he received complaints from unionists in the military regime, who gave him the epithet "Bishop Red". Goic, has never been afraid of reprisals, although on one occasion recordings of the radio program Testimonio—which documents human rights and labor abuses—were seized by the military.

Although not a formal mediator between the warring parties of the 2006 student demonstrations, Goic expressed his desire that the demonstrations reach a successful conclusion. Goic issued a statement expressing his opinion: There isn't anyone in Chile that doesn't want to improve the quality and equity of education here. One would like to ask the student leaders, who have proven competent, that they have a little patience, so that may be worked through in the parliament. On 25 May 2006, a group of students threw stones at Goic's residence in the city of Rancagua, having done the same to the city's Liceo Oscar Castro; the bishop had expressed his intention to mediate only hours before. In his capacity as Bishop of Rancagua, Goic was a key factor in the 2007 negotiations between conflicting parties in a fight over Codelco's outsourcing of workers. In a letter signed by him as President of the Chilean Conference of Bishops, dated to 18 July 2007, he stated: Progress is needed on the subject of collective bargaining on the issue of the company's outsourcing.

Recent events are a sign of insufficient legislation in this area. The right to collective bargaining in effective terms is a basic right that the international community and the Church itself recognizes as belonging to workers; this recognition is not complete without avenues to prevent the worker from collaborating with those who most directly benefit from the fruits of his labor. During the first months of 2008, he served as a mediator between the government and Patricia Troncoso, a pro-Mapuche political prisoner who held a hunger strike for 112 days. In 2009, the Chilean Conference of Bishops, through the Goic's influence, posed the creation of a general presidential pardon for the year 2010, called the "Bicentennial Pardon"; this appeal was subsequently recognized by the government. However, the possibility that military personnel convicted of violations of human rights would benefit from the pardon was ruled out by government spokesperson Carolina Tohá; the pardon was slated to take place after the 2009–2010 presidential election.

In 2007, just weeks after the state mining company Codelco re

The movie stars newcomer Sam Anderson, alongside newcomers Varnika; the story opens as a medical college student, sings a song during the cultural festival. She is being surrounded by lush green fields and mountains but the college, or the stage for that matter, is nowhere in sight; the next scene shifts to three robbers.

In comes hero David on a scooter who does a chase after them, he recognizes Deepa from the college function earlier. He gives his gold crucifix chain as a gift. Deepa refuses, but David gives a sermon about Hindu-Christian difference. Yet, she still does not accept it. David gives his'stepnee' tyre to Deepa; this incident is one of the most important scenes in the movie.

The next day, David goes to Deepa's house. He stands mesmerized by her voice, he asks Deepa to return his tyre. Deepa informs him. David impresses her mother with his gentlemanly manners which failed to impress the audiences; the scene shifts to David's confrontation with the robbers who happen to be the accomplices of his father's best friend. David starts a sermon about the greatness of the crucifix and gives it to the robbers for cleansing their sins; the robbers praise David as their saviour. They give back the chain they stole from Deepa during the beginning of the film. Deepa learns that David is an automobile engineer and visits his workshop, sees "high-end models" designed by David. David returns Deepa's chain that he had got from the robbers, he presents the crucifix along with her chain. David and Deepa fall in love. Deepa's mother is concerned. Deepa praises David's manners. Meanwhile, the robbers begin to work in David's workshop; the mechanics prod David to tell them about his affair with Deepa.

David proposes his idea, but Deepa's father scoffs at it, leaving David heart-broken. David requests for a car poster, posted on the office wall.

Deepa's looks were as good as David's dancing; the next day, Moorthy visits David's workshop but upon seeing the reality, changes his mind and refuses to lend money to David.

David is heartbroken but Deepa visits him and consoles him. She asks him to marry her, she plans to use her 500,000 rupees to help David out.

David has a duet sequence with Manju for some unexplained reasons. Deepa enters the room and gets angry at David for flirting with another woman, she leaves the room fuming. David tries to stop her but she doesn't listen. At this point in the film, most of the audience would've concluded that both girls would've been wooed by David's talent in dancing. Manju learns about his life after college and his new love Deepa, she gets angry at him for not treating Deepa properly.

But she feels sorry for him and soon falls prey to his. The Raasathi song is shown again but this time with Manju instead of Deepa.
