Christmas celebration at Pushpashrama

Christmas is a glorious day to rejoice and to celebrate; it is the birthday of our Saviour Jesus Christ who became flesh and dwelt among us. This day was solemnized at the Infant Jesus Shrine, Pushpashrama on December 24, 2017. The brothers of Pushpashrama through their melodious voice sang the Christmas carols at 9-30 p.m. followed by the solemn Eucharistic celebration at 10-00 p.m. presided over by Fr Joy Francis and concelebrated by the community friars. The Christmas liturgy was meticulously organized by the philosophy students of Pushpashrama. Fr Joy in his homily enlightened the faithful as regards the contradictions that are found in the modern world which are contrary to the spiritual world of Jesus. He gave a clarion call to all the faithful to follow the simplicity, humility and poverty of Jesus in our personal and family lives. After the mass as the people wished each other with the greetings of Christmas, cake and coffee were being served for all the faithful. Thus the vigil mass at Pushpashrama created an atmosphere of prayer through the spiritual celebration and the beautiful lights which added colours to the Infant Jesus Shrine.

On the following day December 25, 2017 the festal mass was celebrated at 8-00 a.m. presided over by Fr Lawrence D’ Mello, rector of Pushpashrama. In his homily he explained the theological significance of the prologue of the Gospel of John and how the word became flesh and dwelt among us. The brothers through their angelic voice added spiritual flavour to the Eucharistic celebration. After the mass the Christmas cake was distributed to all the people.
