Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church is lacking for strong leadership to
protect its interest. The present movement of the leadership is
making doubts about the future of the Church. The acts of few
leaders are susceptible. When I indicated about the plan of Bishops
to crossing the floor from our fraction to the Patriarchis fraction
some of our members opposed through their postings in another forum
that I am writing all the controversies. I hope those members may
understand the real story now.
Mar Savarios is already crossed the floor and joined with the
Patriarchis fraction. We treated Thirumeny very nicely and our
people supported H.G. The action of Mar Savarios is a crystal
clear picture of the planned drama.
Another drama is staging by the direction of another Bishop to
snatch the Thrikkunnathu Seminary. V. Rev. Fr. Mannaraprayal is a
strong faithful soldier of our Church. But the opposition groups
and their spies won to stamp Achen as a malpractice.
The rally of protest at Kottayam from the Northern side is another
drama. If our leaders spent a little time to find the brain behind
these actions then they will understand the crookedness of the
Majority of the Managing committee members came to understand the
secret of the game and it made them to take a stand, which protects
the interest of our Church.
We have a constitution, that is made by our ancestors with prayer
and we need not to break those rules. We should have to elect our
Bishops through the Malankara Association only and we have no
scarcity of qualified candidates to go through any short cuts. Any
deviation of our constitution leads us to dangerous situation.
All the reputed Malayalam News Paper publishes the news about the
Bishops for changing the side and I did not find any strong
statement from any of the Bishops about this news. Mar Militias
have made a statement with some calculated words, which is still
When one of the Bishops give a statement about late H.H. Basalios
Marthoma Mathews I that Thirumeny is has to hand over the power to
the Assistant because of the health, H.H. did it immediately. If the
history is like that then what is the barricade to elevate the
Catholicose designate H.B. Thomas Mar Thimothios as the Malankara
Metropolitan? Who are playing behind the screen?
These are the curio cities of an ordinary member and it will be
highly appreciable if anyone is able to clear these doubts.
