    During our recent visit to Mangalore, we had solicited from St. Joseph Vaz a special favor, and the favor was spontaneously granted to us and we were extremely pleased with the outcome of our urgent need.

    We therefore decided to make an immediate road trip to Mudipu and pay our personal respect to the shrine of St. Fr. Joseph Vaz. It was a tough walk up the hill with a fractured leg, but the journey was made even easier by the miraculous blessing of St. Fr. Joseph Vaz.

    I stood up firmly without a wheel chair and thanked St. Joseph Vaz for all the favors granted. What a joyful trip to Mudipu with a scenic drive. It was a well deserved trip.

    We would like to visit Mudipu each time we visit Mangalore. We are sure that St. Joseph Vaz will continue to help us and protect us.
