Our Lady of Velankanni Church – Irla 30


About Our Lady of Velankanni Church,  Irla –It is well known that the history of the devotion to Our lady of Velankanni is traced back to a small town of Vailankanni located near Nagapattinam to the South of Chennai. It is believed that, Our Lady dispensed miracles to mankind through three significant appearances to ordinary people at different locations in and around Vailankanni. Her first appearance with baby Jesus was to a Hindu boy carrying milk. In the second event, Our Lady appeared and cured a crippled boy selling butter milk, after which people started calling Our Lady ‘Mother of Good Health’. In her third appearance, Our Lady rescued Portuguese sailors from a violent storm. On being taken to the thatched chapel at Vailankanni by the local fishermen, as a gesture of thanksgiving to Our Lady, the sailors set up a small permanent structure which today has grown into a huge sprawling township.

Irla, situated just off S.V. Road between Vile Parle and Andheri is a well known landmark, thanks to the Shrine of Our Lady of Health of Velankanni. It was in October 1967 that the Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions (PIME) touched base in Irla. At the midnight Mass on December 25, 1968, Rev. Fr. Bruno Venturin (PIME), announced that he would build a Chapel for the people of Irla and the Chapel (now named the Prayer Hall) was officially inaugurated on 14th April 1968 (Easter Sunday).

Our Lady of Velankanni Novena (Recite Every Saturday

Oh Most Holy Virgin! You were chosen by the Most Adorable Trinity from all eternity to be the most pure Mother of Jesus. Permit me, your humble and devoted servant, to remind you of the joy received in the instant of the Most Sacred Incarnation of our Divine Lord and during the nine months you carried Him in your chaste womb. I wish most sincerely that I could renew, or even increase that joy, by the fervour of my Prayers. Oh! Tender Mother of the afflicted! Grant me under my present necessities that special protection You have promised to those who devoutly commemorate this ineffable joy. Relying on the infinite mercies of your Divine Son, trusting in the promise which He has made that those who ask should receive, and penetrated with confidence in your powerful prayers, I most humbly entreat you intercede for me. I beg you to obtain for me the favours which I petition for in this novena, if it be the Holy Will of God to grant them; to ask for me whatever graces I most stand in need of.

(Here specify your requests)
I desire by this novena, which I now offer in your honour, to prove the lively confidence I have in your intercession. Accept it, I beseech you, in honour of that supernatural love and joy, with which your Immaculate Heart was replenished during the abode of your divine Son in your womb; in veneration of which, I offer you the sentiments of my heart.

(Repeat the Hail Mary nine times) and then say the following prayer:-
Oh! Mother of God! accept these salutations in union with the respect and veneration with which the Angel Gabriel first hailed you, “Full of Grace” I wish most sincerely that they may become so many gems in the crown of your incidental glory, which will increase
in brightness to the end of the world. I beseech you, Oh! comfortress of the afflicted, by the joy you received, when the word was made flesh, to obtain for me the favours and graces, which I have now implored through your powerful intercession. For this end I offer you all the good works which have even been performed in your honour. I most humbly entreat you for the love of the amiable Heart of Jesus, with which yours was ever so inflammed, to hear my humble prayers and to obtain my requests.
– Amen.
