Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.

Christmas is a season for kindling the fire of hospitality, the flame of charity in our hearts, the spirit of love and forgiveness, of believing and sharing with family and friends.

Albert Einstein said, “Try not to become a man of success but rather try to become a man of value”. It never occurred to Herbert to gain wealth, or fame, or join the rat race to achieve a high position and profile or acquire material possessions. He was a simple man who believed his most valued wealth were his family, his friends, his catholic values, trust and his unswerving principles.

She was conceived without original sin; she was a woman of incomparable purity and she received the most precious graces God ever gave a human creature. Her birth represents the entrance into the world of a new grace, a new blessing, and the end of the age of darkness. The Nativity of Mother Mary celebrates not only the birthday of the mother of Jesus Christ but also venerates our lady with a recitation of prayers, devotions and blessings. Monthi Fest, a unique Mangalorean tradition, the feast of the new harvest coincides with the birthday of our Lady. Kernels of rice from the new crop are blessed and prayed over in gratitude for a successful yield. Fruits, vegetables and flowers are offered first in church, and an assortment of odd numbered vegetable dishes are prepared and served in catholic homes.
