I wish you all a "Happy Monthi Fest"!!

The feast of the Nativity of our Lady traditionally has evolved through the last few centuries as a ' Family feast'. This feast brings togetherness, warmth, joy and a festive spirit among members of one's own family. My grand mother used to send blessed corn to her daughters in Canada so that they share a meal and imbibe this togetherness and closeness. Monthi Fest is celebrated by Mangaloreans all over the world.

This year has been proclaimed as "The Year of Faith". which is nurtured in the family. The entire novena in preparation for the Feast of the Nativity of our lady focuses on the Family. Children enjoy offering flowers to our Lady. Infants in the arms of their mothers with their tiny hands show their devotion to our Lady.This Feast is an occasion to cement old ties and nurture bonds of fellowship and friendship within the community.

May our blessed mother protect us from all evil and may she fill us with  a desire to love her son Jesus who is Lord forever and ever.
