the chapel in Gaumvaddi. Every day a different
priest from the Pilar Society celebrates the mass.
Today, the mass was celebrated by Dr. Fr. Hillary
Fernandes, the vice-postulator for the cause of the
beatification of Ven Agnelo. Fr Hillary said several
complicated medical cases which could not be proved
successfully by science were sent to Rome - a
prerequisite to beatification - but due to
technicalities were not accepted. "However, people
continue to send us the accounts of Ven
Agnelo's intercession in their lives. It's their
faith in him that helps them to receive promptly
what they ask for," said Fr. Hillary.
