Climbing to Mount Calvary

Fr. Varghese and other priests helped relocate Fr. S. Baskhar (shown below) to his new jungle mission, Infant Jesus Mission in Kothakota, last June. He converted an old school into a simple church and sleeps in a rented house nearby. Fr. Baskhar shared these photos from a Catholic form of Padayata, the Hindu term for a pilgrimage by foot. He led village faithful in a procession to a "mount" that "resembled Mount Calvary," wrote Fr. Baskhar. He and visiting priests conducted a "Way of the Cross with Holy Mass."
