Pilgrimage to Villianur

Cuddalore – The Month of October is commemorated as a special month both for the Church and the Guanellian Congregations. The month is blessed with the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary and the feast of St. Louis Guanella. To celebrate these two important feasts, St. Joseph’s Seminary organized a pilgrimage to Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine at Villianur on October 11th. Fr. Amalorpavanathan began the day with opening prayers then the brothers started their pilgrimage in groups. Through the grace of God all safely reached their destination. The Rosary was recited and Holy Mass celebrated. Fr. Amalorpavanathan gave a beautiful homily on Marian spirituality in light of St. Louis Guanella’s writings. Following Holy Mass the pilgrims processed around the Madha Pool carrying candles and praying for their personal intentions. The group returned to the Seminary after lunch.
