Thank you one and all who assembled in Moovattupuzha and made the rally and public meet a grand success..A low key meeting which was actually planned turned out to be massive one as faithful flooded in..... Jacobites have once again proved that, whenever the sons of darkness have tried to create chaos in the church, ordinary faithful have always stood with the church and for the church... We have once again proved that nothing can shake our faith passed on to us by our forefathers through generations...
