And not just tomorrow, hopefully many times in the coming years!
As I have shared with You, it has been YEARS (like 40-50 years?!) since I have had a decent holiday, and I am really weary now.
The Shrine of Velankanni, of Our Lady of Health, on the Mid East coast of Tamil Nadu is one dear to me.
The Shrine has grown tremendously over the years, and has 5 or 6 impressive churches within its complex.
As it is frequented by people of All faiths, -and in large numbers, – the main Church in particular and the township are a little too noisy, and have a lot of coming-and-going.
That said, it is still not working out that I may spend a few days there.
What I have decided is to go from Kulithalai (1) which is the nearest town for me, to Tiruchirappalli (2), take a train from there to Nagore, which is near Nagappattinam (4), – not even touching Velankanni, by the way, Alas! – and return by the same route, the same day.
A pilgrimage by Train (and Bus)? 🙂
Gives me a Day Off. Which would be Very Welcome. …Shall be remembering You All!
Love and Regards. 🙂
