were also mentioning the same point.the problems now
is not of faith but because of the love for power and
material benefits by the 'run-away' group and
you-know-who.We all should be proud that our ancestors
understood the gospel in the early days itself and
that too from the holy father St.Thomas and we are
under the spiritual leadership of the holy Apostolic
See of Antioch.

try to impose anything forcibly on others.Try to
conquer the person next to you by love.I believe that
it is what the gospel teaches us.On the other hand,any
infringements towards the most-suffered group can lead
only to more and more trouble and shame (for both
sides).OT principles of "eye for an eye and.." comes
to picture and the game will be out from the hands of
'those' who are staging this show.

>misguiding the people.It is crystal clear that both factions can never go
united.So let we,the common man,decide that we won't
play dumb upon more troubles created by them.And IOC
should decide not to make shameful troubles in SOC
parishes again as in all previous years.Let us not
play masterplans with funeral processions.We both will
find our own seperate ways and welcome the days of
this new and wonderful year with peace and harmony
that Christianity preaches.What is restricting us from
thinking like this?I fail to find any reason....
It would be fine if they just remember that 'Shouting
at the top of the voice never turn a lie to be truth'
