The feast of the Assumption of the Virgin of August 15 this year does not end with the evening procession, but it continues with that of St. Elisha August 29 that every year, the High Canton manifests itself for this saint.
This is not the first time that the church of Orto organized this festival of Saint Elisha at the top of the mountain to the chapel that bears his name. This year is the ninth time that all the young people and even the children of the High Canton have come up with their families, their parents and even their grandparents to honor this saint. Some who have gone barefoot, carry in their hearts prayers, vows, ... All solemnly celebrated this Mass with great joy by singing "Eliseu Santu In cun grand'piétà ...". This great happiness has accompanied us all, after this celebration sung by the young people of the High Canton, at the source of the fountain where we were able to share our meal taken from the bag, "It flows naturally", despite the drought is widespread this year everywhere on our territory. After the picnic, some continued their way to Lake Crenu to contemplate the landscape or rest, others went down to the river to refresh.
We said that this happiness that the Lord has bestowed on us was always there with us all along our way, as we all wished that happiness would always be with us throughout our lives and that our saint Elisha intercede with of the Lord for each and every one of us, especially for those who could not come up with us and who entrusted us with their prayers, vows, ... after this feast, each one of us went down to the village, work and daily life ... May the Lord accompany us every day as our happiness accompanies us every day. Thank you Lord, thank you Saint Elisha, thank you all for making us want to go back again next year to Saint Elisha to rejuvenate this happiness with the Lord. Happy feast day to all !
