Veneration of a Statue in Indian Orthodox Church.
- According to Malayala Manoram Daily 2002 September 05, H.G. Dr.
Geevarghese Mar Ostahthious venerated a statue of St. Mary & Infant
Jesus in front of the Main Holy Altar of St. Mary's Orthodox Church,
Niranam. (Picture also published stating the ceremony and showing H.G
& parish Vicar Fr. Varghese Chacko standing in front of the statue).
When IOC criticizing the Ettu Noyambu and Nada Thurakkal of Manarcadu
Church, is this action can be justified? Or is it their long term
plan to divert their members from Manarcadu Church to Niranum Church?
In my knowledge, no statues are allowed in our Churches, only Icons
are allowed to keep in the Church. Can any scholars in this forum
elaborate the action of venerating a statue in Oriental Orthodox
