Rosary Devotion at Xellim
Pope Leo XIII said:
"The Rosary is the most excellent form of prayer
and the most efficacious means of attaining
eternal life. It is the remedy for all our
evils, the root of all our blessings. There is
no more excellent way of praying."
In the chapel of Our Lady of Fatima, Xellim, the
faithful of the parish dedicated the month of
October to honour and pray the holy rosary every
day near the cross. In the chapel dedicated to
Our Lady of Fatima, they celebrate the feast on
13th. On 13th a big procession was initiated
from St. Sebastian Church to Our Lady of Fatima
chapel. This year due to the pandemic the
vehicle procession went to all the village roads
of Church and chapel.
The closing ceremony of Month of Rosary was
celebrated pompously at Xellim, Goa. A number of
devotees gathered prayerfully to honour our
heavenly Mother. The ceremony consisted of
singing hymns to our lady, praying of the rosary
and the litany with candle light. It began at 6
pm and concluded with singing of beautiful hymns
at the chapel.
At these difficult times, mother Mary has been
our greatest intercessor. She has lovingly stood
by the faithful and will continue to do the
same. Let the rosary spirit of October continue
in us and let the Blessed Mother remain the
queen in each of our families, helping us go
closer to his Son Jesus Christ.
