Mangalore Feb 16, 2018: Most Rev Dr Aloysius Paul D’Souza the Bishop of Mangalore celebrated the feast of Relic of Saint Anthony at the Milagres Church grounds. He said this feast is a thanksgiving celebration for the numerous favours received through the powerful intercession of Saint Anthony. The large gathering present for the feast is a witness to the unfailing help of the Wonder Worker Saint Anthony he said.

Very Rev. Father Maxim Noronha the Parish Priest of Infant Jesus Church Bantwal-Modankap preached the homily. In his homily he preached the usefulness of tongue in human life. The tongue can encourage others, revive somebody’s hopes. And also if not used properly it can malign somebody’s name and destroy other’s life. He called on the people present to make use of the tongue to praise God and speak well of others. When we do this we celebrate a meaningful feast in honour of Saint Anthony’s Relic (Saint Anthony’s tongue), said.

Earlier during the day at 4.30 pm a Holy Mass was celebrated at Milagres Church in Malayalam by Most Rev Dr Varghese Chakkalakal the Bishop of Calicut. A Holy Mass was celebrated by Very Rev. Dr Pius D’Souza the Episcopal Vicar for Religious at 8.15 am at Milagres Church for the sick and elderly. At 11 am a Holy Mass was celebrated by Msgr Denis Moras Prabhu the Vicar General of the Diocese for the inmates and special invitees at the Ashram Jeppu.
35 priests and more than 4,000 devotees participated in the celebration.
