    Beauty of God is seen in the Face of God's People. This beauty need to be experienced and personalized through God Experience. Though God is everywhere but He is abiding in the Temple built and dedicated to Him. The Temple of God at Perampally which is reflects the beauty and the blessing of God . As the feast of Our Lady of Fathima is celebrated with that experience May the Image of God shine in the people who visit the Holy Place and Holy Temple.
