Santos Passos and Veronica Singing at Benaulim

The reliving of the Passion of Jesus is always a major concern for the traditional Goan catholic. This is very much seen specially during the Lent of every year. At St. John the Baptist parish there is a  hillock in the church propeprty. Over the top there is sizeable chapel which hosts the passion of Jesus. Like every year this time also on 13th March 2011,  the long procession from the church proceeded to the chapel with the image of Jesus carrying the Cross. At the chapel there was a moving homily delivered by the Asstistant parish priest Fr. Pedro D'Costa. He specified the carrying and importance of the cross in individuals life.
The preaching was followed by the singing of  motet "Veronica" by the local girl and aptley supported on Clarinet by the church Choir master Mr. Saturnino Fernandes. As always the singing moves the hearts of the onlookers and listeners.
