Saint Anthony’s Feast – eighth day of novena was held at St Anthony’s Ashram Chapel, Jeppu on June 07, 2019.
Fr Pramod Crasta the Assistant Parish Priest of St Francis Xavier Church Bejai offered the Holy Mass for the intention of senior citizens.
Father Crasta in his homily said that love is the foundation of our faith. Jesus became a human being out of love for humanity. He died on the cross for the people. Hence the essence of Christianity is Love. The love preached by Jesus has two dimensions i.e. love of God and love of neighbor. God is unseen but people are seen. So the love preached by Jesus has to be shown in loving people. He called on the devotees to respect towards the elderly. It is because of their sacrifice that we are today what we are. Respecting the elderly is nothing but loving God who dwells in them.
Fr Onil D’Souza the Director of the Ashram conducted the Chaplet and the Rosary. Fr Thrishan D’Souza the Asst Director conducted the novena. Hundreds of people participated in the devotion.
