We are on the eve of our Annual Nativity devotions and feast. It is a time when all parishioners and devotees of our
Lady of Velankanni come together and work as a team for the success of the Novenas and Feast
Let us keep in mind that the scope of this Novena is for our personal santification and santification of devotees who
come here in large numbers, some of them from distant places with much difficulty.
Personal santification : First and foremost I request each one of you to make your confession. You have a choiceof
Priests as well as languages
Let us provide an atmosphere of prayer and solace to our devotees. Let us try not to offend or hurt them. The devotees
come here for their sanctification, to obtain some favours or healing. Let our modesty and humility encourage each
devotee to visit this shrine again and again.
May our Lady of Health of Velankanni intercede for all of us.
