Poondi Madha Shrine

Rev. Fr. Constantine Joseph Beschi S.J., an Italian Jesuit missionary, built the Church of Mary Queen of Immaculate Conception between 1714 and 1718. He was popularly known as Veeramamunivar. Rev. Fr. Lourdes Xavier, parish priest of the church, noticed in 1955 that the roof looked unsound. An engineer told him that the central roof was unsafe, but the rest of the structure was strong and recommended the roof be renewed. Later, on a rainy night, the roof of the church collapsed, leaving everything else intact, thus saving the cost of taking down the roof. After this the number of pilgrims to the shrine increased and accounts of miracles and cures started to spread. The local people called Mary Poondi Matha. Matha means Mother in Tamil. The shrine became known as Poondi Matha shrine. Poondi Madha Shrine was officially classified a Minor Basilica by Pope John Paul II on 3 August, 1999.
