Mangalore, Jan 10: The Infant Jesus Shrine located at Carmel Hill at Bikarnatte, played host to large number of faithful, on its annual feast held on Thursday January 10 evening. Large number of devotees participated in the Holy Eucharistic celebration held at 6.00 pm on Thursday.

Bishop Peter Machado of Belgaum celebrated the mass along with more than 40 priests. In his homily, he said that most of the faithful come here expecting miracles. "They expect Almighty God to grant their wishes as proposed by them.  But, one should look upon Jesus Christ who has obeyed the will of His Father to the end.  He has led us faithful to follow his example by going through trials and tribulations in our life, thereby, enjoy the eternal peace with Him," he said.

The Carmel Hill is not only a place of miracles, but its serenity should transform one to become a devout individual, he added.

Earlier, Holy Masses were also held in Konkani, Malayalam, English and in Kannada at Infant Jesus shrine. Devotees, irrespective of their caste and religion, paid visit to the shrine and offered prayers.

More than sixteen thousand devotees attended the mass, which was celebrated by the Bishop of Belgaum.
