Annual Feast of Shrine of Our Lady of Health -2018, Harihar, Diocese of Shimoga

September 9, 2018

http://www.frfranklin.org/news/devotional-news/diocesanal-level/1220-annual-feast-of-shrine-of-our-lady-of-health-2018-diocese-of-shimoga

The Feast of Shrine of Our Lady of Health, Harihar was celebrated with grandeur and pomp on 8th September at Harihar. Around 3 lakh pilgrims flooded to participate in the Liturgical Events of the day at the Shrine from the Karnataka as well as outside states of Karnataka. The Shrine of Our Lady of health attracts lakhs of devotees throughout the year. Tradition has it that a Brahmin priest while having a bath was miraculously saved from drowning by the statue of our Lady. Later even his ailing wife and children were saved by this miraculous statue. The Brahmin and his family started to venerate the statue as “Satyamma (Mother of Truth).” The Brahmin and his family remained faithful to this Marian devotion till their very last breath. As years went by, priests from the nearing town recognized the statue as the statue of our Lady. Thus, the devotion to Mary spread among the faithful in and around Harihar. Many receive special graces such as Childless have received Children, sick have regained Health, Healing and so on after visiting and praying at the Shrine. Over the years, this shrine has become a refuge for all the distressed and dejected.

 


 

 

 

 


 

On Fr. Franklin D’Souza’s blog, I came across a photograph of devotees rolling on the ground over the remains of meals served on banana leaves. The abominable practice called made snana in Kannada, where “lower caste” people or dalits roll over the leftovers of food eaten by Brahmins, was banned by the Karnataka High Court in 2014.

I am presently unable to relocate it to use it here. However, here is a representation of it:
