Varanasi Infant Jesus Shrine’s three-day annual feast begins

Media Release

Varanasi, Nov 26: The shrine of Infant Jesus, Pandit Deen Dayal Nagar (formerly known as Mughalsarai), belongs to the diocese of Varanasi. The shrine began its three-day annual feast celebrations on Friday November 26.

The feast will culminate on November 28 with prayers and Holy Mass from 9 am.

The shrine was blessed and opened in 1984 as a part of Christ the King Church. Hundreds of faithful throng the shrine daily, many with tear-filled eyes seeking various favours before the statue of Infant Jesus. Mother Theresa of Kolkata was the one who inspired the then parish priest of the church to establish the shrine for Infant Jesus and dedicate it to the people in 1982.

The shrine of Infant Jesus is situated at a distance of 17 kilometres from Varanasi. One can reach the shrine by road, rail and air mode of transport. An overnight train from New Delhi is also a good option for those who travel from the capital city.

Faithful come here from all walks of life, from all states of India. People from diverse paths of various religions unite as one in common sea of humanity and collectively kneel in worship with faith in their hearts and a prayer on their lips.

A long list of recorded miracles from people of all faiths has been recorded in this shrine. Strange tales of the inexplicable abound are shared by the flock here annually who have their own miracle to tell.

Prayers are offered daily during the Mass and Holy Hour and during every Saturday Novena to Infant Jesus for all the devotees, benefactors and for all those who are sending their petitions.
