Mangaluru/Udupi, Sep 8: Devotees across the coastal districts celebrated the feast of Our Lady of Nativity, or commonly known as Monthi Fest with joy and devotion on Wednesday September 8. For the second year on the trot, the celebrations at churches were moderate due to the restrictions owing to coronavirus pandemic.

Monthi Fest, marking the birthday of Mother Mary, is celebrated after the nine-day Novena. Mangalureans spread across the globe celebrate this feast with utmost devotion.

Like last year, strict safety measures were followed in churches according to government's guidelines. Only a limited number of faithful were allowed inside the churches, social distancing was followed and wearing mask was mandatory.

Rituals such as procession and offering of flowers by children were absent due to the restrictions. However, the faithful were allowed to offer flowers to Mother Mary individually.

The Mass at the churches will be followed by feast food at homes with family gatherings. Newly grown rice is part of the feast which is symbolically distributed in churches after blessing.

    As a fitting tribute to mother Mary, without whose intercession this post on understanding of the soul would not have been possible Here is the post and these my views Genesis 2:7 .Gnt tells us” Then the LORD God took some soil from the ground and formed a man[c] out of it; he breathed life-giving breath into his nostrils and the man began to live.” It means that God created every organ, cellular network etc of the man but there was no life in it. Then God blew His breath into it and the man began to live. The life which God blew into the man has two distinct parts. The life passes on from generations to generations through chromosomes. And the second part is the That the graces that adorn the life. when a man dies what was created from the soil will go back to soil and his soul will stand before God to be judged. Is Adam a Y chromosomal man? No, I do not think so. Rather he was created with XY chromosomes. But God gathered all the X chromosomes in a small rib which was used later by God to create Eve. Resourses 1) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK26932 2) Courses.lumenlearning.com, DNA mutation, biology for majors 3) The protein factory www.EBI.AC.UK Observations 1) Only the proteins produced by the Ribosome can enter the nucleus.Some proteins produced by the Ribosome remain in the Cystol which is used by Golgi apparatus to imprint the genetic imprint on the food we ingest so that it is acceptable to the body. I am now reminded of Bible which speaks of “clean and unclean foods” (Deut 14:3-21). However much research need to be done in this regard. 2) GENETIC MUTATIONS ARE CAUSED BY LOSS OF GRACES FROM GOD. This how God has control over us. Any attempt to fiddle with nucleus reminds me of the consequences at the collapse of Tower of Babel but this time it may be different. 3) As I remember reading some time back that when a person dies, the hereditary part of genes also die. That indicates that a man is accountable only for his sins. However it must be noted that our offspring carry the the genes along with hereditary traits .

    My sincere apologies the copy paste goof up was attached to John Mangalore instead to John Crasta Mangaluru .sorry for the 2nd goof up "How to set ourselves free from the sins of our forefathers? In this connection I would like to draw the attention of the readers to Mark 9:14-29.Bible Gnt .It is my humble view that “deaf and dumb” refers to sins of our fore fathers and only mass petitions offered to Jesus can set us free. I would like to give an example of the mass petition. It is as follows “Jesus forgive my sins and those of my wife and those of our forefathers by the blood you shed on Calvary and set us and our future generations free” When the priest offers our petition to Jesus it meets all the requirements."

    Blessed Virgin Mother's Birthday message on how to be Divine or Good to defeat the Satan (of Pride, Lust, Anger, Hatred....) with the Rosary in a message to Maureen dated August 5, 2021... The Blessed Virgin Mary says: "Praise be to Jesus." "Dear children, as it is My earthly birthday today, (Church celebrates on Sept 8th) Papa God allows Me the privilege of addressing you." ....... (Our Lady is holding a rosary made of rosebuds.) ....... She says: "This is the weapon that will defeat Satan. The rosary* is more powerful than any nuclear weapon. This is why Satan - the enemy of your salvation - opposes your rosaries with such vehemence. Be on guard for his tactics to defeat your prayers. He uses time against you." ....... "When you arise each morning, ask Me for the grace to be able to pray well - from the heart. It is in this way that Satan's plans are revealed both in your own lives and in the world. He is the enemy you cannot see, but is always the enemy of any good - great or small. He is already defeated for all eternity and is jealous of each soul's opportunity to earn Heaven. Be obedient to Papa God's Commandments.** This is the path that places you in the Refuge of My Immaculate Heart. Once in My Heart, I will defend and rescue you from Satan's lies." ....... "Earthly life is always a battle between good and evil. Carry your rosaries with you as a sign to Satan that you belong to Me." ....... "I am your Refuge of Holy Love and your strength." ....... Read 1 Timothy 2:1-4+ * The Messages of Holy and Divine Love at Maranatha Spring and Shrine. *Happy Feast to All*

    Sorry this was missed out from the original post(copy paste mistake) This is an integral part of point 3 "How to set ourselves free from the sins of our forefathers? In this connection I would like to draw the attention of the readers to Mark 9:14-29.Bible Gnt .It is my humble view that “deaf and dumb” refers to sins of our fore fathers and only mass petitions offered to Jesus can set us free.
