Midnight Mass

On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures” – During midnight mass on Easter Sunday, after a moment of total darkness, the lights return to reveal an image of the resurrected Christ to the congregation of Santa Cruz Cathedral, in Fort Kochi, Kerala.

Originally built by the Portuguese in the early 1500s, the basilica is the mother church of the Diocese of Cochin, where the Jesuits begun their ‘harvest of souls’ from the local Hindu, Jew, Muslim, and Nestorians communities that eventually led to the town being dubbed ‘the cradle of Catholicism in India’.
