Basilica of Our Lady of the Assumption
St. Mary’s Church is a magnificent landmark both architecturally and historically. It was popularly known as St. Mary’s Cathedral while it was the principal church of the Vicariate of Hyderabad.
The church stands as an example of the fusion of the Indian Gothic style with its curved arches and buttress. Another uniqueness of St. Mary’s is that it has several side altars dedicated to the saints. The church also has four bells which were brought from Italy in 1901.
Sermon for 20th April 2014
Resurrection of Jesus is the foundation of Christian faith; although it is a future reality it has serious implications for the present
For us Christians Easter is a feast of joy when the defeat of the Good Friday is converted into victory. Jesus Christ overcame death and entered into a new life, a new existence, signifying that death is not the end of life, but only an entry into a new existence. Resurrection of Jesus is the guarantee of the resurrection of all those who believe in him. Faith in the resurrection of Jesus gives his followers the strength and courage to face any crisis in life, including death
