Due to bad weather all flight from Kolkata to Aizawl was cancel when i had my last vocation. So i spend my unplanned holiday in Kolkata. We are lucky that we manage to get lodging in Mizoram House. I am not alone but many others stayed back at the time.
This is my first time to take my spiritual pilgrim to Church of Good Health Shrine of Vailankanni. I have known this place many years back but never think of to visit the place. I only heard about it miraculous happening which has been taking place since many years ago. Till today there are thousands of pilgrims from all over the world expecting to receive physical and spiritual healing, divine grace and blessings from this place. Though this place is maintained and taken care by the Catholic Church, it does not mean that it is only for the Christians believer. All people from all community and denomination come here and receive blessings as well as physical and spiritual healing. I have seen and heard that many people receive miracle physical healing from different kind of illness, which is impossible to cure by Medical Doctor. Not only physical healing but abundant blessings and favors have been received by many people from this place in their own needs.
We arrived early in the morning the next day from Chennai. There are also thousands of pilgrims from all parts of the world. The Cathedral is huge and beautiful. The prayer service and Holy Mass is conducted around the clock in three languages. i.e English, Tamil and Hindi. All facilities are provided in the campus itself for pilgrims who visited this Holy place.
The history of this Holy shrine has amazing story. The Holy Water and Holy Oil has deep impact in this Holy place. Everyone who visited this place wants to take home this holy water and holy oil for their loved ones who cannot visit this place physically. This is memorable journey in my spiritual life.
I would like to mention about the Shrine information and Library centre. Here there are thousands and thousands of letters and gifts displayed. People who received blessings and miracle healing send back their feedback from different parts of the world. I am impressed to see and come to know that people really received many blessings from this Holy Shrine. All the letters and gifts are displayed in beautiful show case box. But photography is strictly prohibited. It’s really amazing and wonderful!
