The 65th birthday of His Holiness The Apostle Rohan Lalith Aponso dawned on 2nd February 2022. The birth of His Holiness took place on 2nd February 1957, precisely at 12 midnight on 1st February 1957.
The devoted populace were drawn to the Shrine of Our Lady of Katunayake, Sri Lanka where His Holiness The Apostle is living, with hearts brimming with devotion to celebrate the 65th birthday of the One and Only Apostle who was born at the end of a day and the beginning of the next day, or in other words at the peak of darkness and at the moment when the dawning of light was beginning.
Parents carrying small infants as well as extremely elderly people walking with the aid of walking sticks flocked to the sacred meritorious land where His Holiness The Apostle is living due to the love that is constantly flowing from their hearts.
It is true that they have a myriad of reasons to do so. Everyone had some sort of a story to tell. They told such astonishing stories in public and stories behind their love and devotion to the Only Living Apostle of the world who is living in their hearts too, by standing in front of the photograph of His Holiness The Apostle.
In fact it was His Holiness The Apostle Rohan Lalith Aponso who taught us not to judge others. His Holiness, who made it clear to us with examples that every action of ours has a consequent retributive reaction, explained that no sin committed by us shall be excused without an appropriate repercussion, creating a fear within us to commit sins. The genesis of a love of this magnitude in the minds of the people for His Holiness who taught not only to think afresh but how to think afresh as well is not a strange thing. On the other hand one cannot even think of another birthday which is being celebrated with a gathering of people, except, of course, in celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.
His Holiness the Apostle Rohan Lalith Aponso is the Only Apostle whose date and time of birth is accurately known to the people.
Precisely at 12 midnight on 1st February 2022, which marks the correct commencement of the 65th birthday, the devoted populace lit oil lamps symbolizing the figure 65, and lit rose candles symbolizing the figure 65. Then they placed bouquets in front of the photograph of His Holiness The Apostle Rohan Lalith Aponso, lit incense sticks and also lit fireworks. Subsequently, with hearts overflowing with love, they declared in public why they love this His Holiness The Apostle so much.
Here you can see a few of the thousands of photographs which depict how the people, who flocked to the Shrine of Our Lady of Katunayake at 12 midnight on 1st February 2022, which is the precise time of that Most Sacred Birth, celebrated this Noble Birth to mark the 65th birthday of His Holiness The Apostle Rohan Lalith Aponso, which dawned on 2nd February 2022
His Holiness the Apostle Rohan Lalith Aponso, is an Apostle, who was Chosen and Appointed by Lord Jesus Christ by Appearing in this world. He was also fortunate to see Blessed Mother Mary to his own eyes for 23 occasions.
