St.Thomas Mount is a small hillock situated south of
Chennai, where St. Thomas - the Apostle of Jesus,
preached Christianity. It is interesting to note that
the bleeding cross said to be carved in stone by St.
Thomas was found here and installed at the altar of the
Church of ’Our Lady of expectation’. The mysterious
blood stains on the bleeding cross remain for years even
after deliberate scrubbing and the wear and tear of
centuries. The Church also holds a fascinating painting
of Holy Mother and Infant Jesus said to have been
painted by the apostle St.Thomas himself during 1st
St. Thomas Mount, Chennai-600 016.
