Our Lady of Rosary Venerated @ Pushpashrama
“Praying the Rosary without the meditation on the mysteries of Christ is similar to a body without a soul”. – Pope Paul VI.


After achieving a feat of praying the rosary in more than 60 homes in the month of October, the community of Pushpashrama organised ‘An hour to Rosary’ in the Infant Jesus Shrine on October 31st. Before the solemn Rosary, a high mass was celebrated in honour of our Lady of Rosary at 6:30 PM. Fr. Oswald was the main celebrant and preached a well prepared homily highlighting the history, significance and Christo-centricism of the Holy Rosary.

With lamps and candles burning bright and our Lady adorning herself amidst these lights, the Rosary was prayed in the presence of minimal lights. Every mystery was reflected in depth and the Fatima Prayer was sung in the presence of the gathered faithful. After the Rosary, all the people marched with lighted candles in procession to the Grotto of our Lady. The litany was sung and all the faithful who had gathered there were dedicated to the Most Holy Family of Jesus. The Rosary was brought to an end by the singing of the ‘Salve Regina’ in its solemn tune.

Thus the whole month of October which is dedicated to Our lady of Rosary, was celebrated in a unusual manner, with a group of brothers and fathers, carrying the statue of Mary and praying the Rosary in their homes after installing the statue. After 30 days of this practice, the Rosary prayed in our shrine ended the month of Rosary in a grand manner. The Grotto was also cleaned, polished and illuminated with lights for this purpose.

Though the month dedicated to the Holy Rosary for this year has ended, nevertheless the fervour of praying the rosary will never get dampened in our hearts!
