Feast of Our Lady of Livra Febres celebrated today at Consua, Verna Goa
22nd January, 2012
 I remember going to this feast, on foot, all by myself, covering a distance of
about 7-8kms.  I was just about 12 years. I almost lost midway...
See, I was into adventure or discovery trips even at tender age.

Now, by road it is about 5-6 kms via Cuelim, Borsulem, Kumsar

We simply said 'Febri Fest'

Saibinnichem orasao (Hymn, can be heard in the video in the end
soon after the procession/blessing)

Amche ganvchi askarinn tum
Soggleank amkam dovor samballun
Bhesanv ghal ge gorabear
Sonkoxttantlim sodanch nivar

Livra Febres Saibinni
Ami tujim oskot bhurgim
Ghottai di ghe Maie amkam
Tujea dhiran samball sodam
Happy Feast to you all
