Dear Jaimini P.B., Manipal,Sharjah
Do not be worried that St. Lawrence is angry on you for not visiting inside the church, he must indeed be happy that he saw you outside his place.

It is indeed a miraculous place I can say with my personal experience, and if possible definetly visit once again with your family and pray, no matter what religion you follow, have a little faith in him, I'm sure he will fulfil your wishes.

And you get lots of information of the history of this holy place on the internet, and to tell the story to your daughter,,-AtturKarkala-:-A-beacon-of-faith-and-miracles.

For the first time in our life we were able to pay a visit to St. Lawrence Church at Karkal. It was an interesting and valuable visit indeed. Irt happened to be a Thursday morning and there was a liturgical service that was going on there, and we took part in the services. We had some American friends with us , and they too were impressed with the beautiful architecture of thechurch, and also the wonderful choir that was going on in the church. After the church service there was a lunch being served in the facilities behind and were tempted to join the long queue because we felt hungry with nice flavour of the food, but we were hesitant. Instead we visited the nearby pool of miracles and spent some quiet time in prayer.

On our next visit to Karkal any time in January we will be happy to spend a good bit of time and take part in the festivals. Its always nice to take part in so many devotional programs taking place all over in India and enjoy the prayers, rituals and music in different languages.

Our American friends thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Karkal that also included the Gomateshwara as well as the nearby ancient temple.

you need not be guilty for not visiting the inner sanctum of the church. As we all believe, there is only one God irrespective of the religious beliefs and practices we maintain - God is everywhere. To enlighten your daughter, you will find books at the Church Stalls that give a lot of insight on St. Lawrence and the church history. Like you, my husband and I have visited a lot of temples when we pray we pray to one God. All saints (irrespective of religion)intercede for us through their intercession - it is our belief - that we seek favours from God. Wish you and your family good health, Happiness and Peace

St.Lawrence Church..I visited this holy church with my wife and 2 children on my last vacation (Nov'12).I wanted to show some historical places to my children.I decided to take them to Gomateshwara,Karkala.Before going I gave some idea about Gomateshwara and narrated story.When I reached top of the hill,my daughter said "this is fantastic,can we see any other place here.?.Suddenly,Attur church struck me.We went there.Being a Hindu, I don't know anything about St Lawrence.So when my daughter asked story about him I was helpless.But said " Pray ,your prayer will be answered"..But still feeling guilty that I didn't see inside the church.I badly needed a christian friend that time.But we prayed infront of the staute and miracle pond.Last week I SAW ST LAWRENCE IN MY DREAM..Today I am reading about Attur church in Daiji..Does he want me to visit his place again ? or is he angry that I didn't go inside the church?..I DON'T KNOW..can anyone calrify my doubt?

I visit this place , when m sad , confused and to thank !. St lawrence interceds and prays for us. And also lets not forget to respect Holy Trinity first , and abstain from calling ' karlada dever'. St lawrense is special for his martyrdom and immence faith , which puts onus on pilgrims to be more humble and do sacrifice during visit . As sinners , we cannot grace God easily , its saints who are more closer to God and his throne they can intercede just like cherubim or archangels ............. Jesus christ have mercy on us ......St Lawrence Pray For us
