24083Re: Facts about the establishment of Catholicate of east
- Oct 11 11:10 AMDear Dr.Leena,
If what you have stated is true, then that should be the main reason cited for the excommunication of 1973.
1) Confession infront of a Priest was deemed unnecessary
2) Any number of new sacraments can be instituted
These two are serious issues. I hope documentation (copies of letters, kalpana's, old seminary syllabus etc) can be posted online to dispel doubts.
The reason often given for the 1973 excommunication sounded very lame. The reasons I have heard are:
1) The Catholicose used a decorative title 'See of St.Thomas'
2) The Catholicose used red ink pen.
These two always sounded very lame excuses. But the two reasons you have listed are much more serious.
