Remembering St. Thoma!!

Filed under: Life as I know it — Celia Rexselin @ 7:21 pm

I have been to St.Thomas Mount many a years but every time I go there, I discover a new thing. This time, as I climbed on to the mountain, I tried to fit myself into St.Thomas’s shoes (wonder whether he had one??) and thought how he would have felt when he ran from Mylapore to this mount. His love for Christ, his zeal, his deep love for the people, and his unquenched thirst.

As I climbed, the clock struck 2. I heard a bell ringing and what followed was something unique. A verse was read out from the Bible. Never have I heard a verse being read out every hour in any other Church.. Kudos to these people… Went in and saw the portraits of the 12 apostles, a marked remembrance of how they died for Jesus, the passion they had, the bleeding cross that still speaks, the portrait of St.Mary drawn by St.Luke, the bone of St.Thomas etc.. These speak for themselves and I feel that this is a must visit place for any believer.

Whoever, wants to visit this place… Also please visit the babies home thats near this church. If you have never known what purpose you have in life, you will know it when you go there.. I heard that they do a lot of services…

Wish you all a Very Happy and fulfilling New Year!!!!



  1. Happy New year!
