15185Re: IOC Catholicos and German Abp Moshe Gurgan
- May 7, 2009Dear all,
Mr.V.T.John is absolutely right.This move by IOC has some resemblance to the establishment of IOC Catholicate in 1912.It was done with the help of a deposed Patriarch, secretly.There were gaps in the succession which were deliberate.The idea at that time was to ensure survival of IOC if the court case went against Mor Vattasseril.That also explains why Mor Vattasseril himself chose not to become Catholicose because he could have easily got that position.The aim of IOC now is a long term plan of having a parallel Syrian Patriarch.It will slowly unravel over the years.This is just a foundation.Anyway SOC need not worry about it too much, if we are united, IOC cannot do much to us.
