PATRONESS EXALTED @ PUSHPASHRAMA
“O little Therese, a beautiful flower which shines in great mercy of God! You are our Carmel’s little one with a great message of God’s unending love”


The feast of the little flower of Jesus was celebrated at the shrine of Infant Jesus Pushpashrama with great pomp and joy as it is the feast of our dear patroness! It was actually pre-poned to 29th September i.e. on Sunday, in view of the people’s attendance at the celebration! The shrine was full as usual, as our friends came out in large numbers to join us in this celebration of the feast! Indeed, it is said, that Therese brings vocations to Carmel! But for Pushpashrama, because of the powerful intercession of St. Therese, for the past years, we’ve had ample vocations, and these brothers of ours have been very much involved in the activities of the shrine! Even this year, it was they who animated the liturgy! They enamored the congregation with the melodious singing of the choir, which led the worshippers into a higher realm of divinity.

The solemn mass was celebrated by Rev. Fr. Rovel D’Souza, the dean of studies at Dhyanavana Institute of Spirituality. He was joined by priests from Pushpashrama. In his sermon Fr. Rovel accentuated the theme of simplicity in love of God, and not shedding our confidence in His providential love. On a whole, the sermon resonated with the spiritual richness of Therese’s spirituality.

After the liturgical celebrations, all were served cakes as a mark of joining with the Carmelites in the celebration.
