Re: Methran Ordination.
- This bishop ordination fell short of anticipation because most of us
were expecting a show which included a patriarch ordination.
Melithios must have also felt the same because he also expected
nothing less than a patriarch.
Word on the street is that these two did the ordination defying the higher-ups in IOC. Those rambans were in contact with Milithios for a long time and are no strangers to Devalogam. Milithios tightened his relationship with the suryoyo community when he caught Fr. Joseph Tarzi.
A Ramban in IOC is also pulling some strings. His relative in America, is currently the cradle rocker for Fr. Tarzi. This ramban who claims to be a member of Cheria Palli and his well wishers are helping Athanasios create issues in and around kothamangalam area. A kothamangalam diocese mentioned by the IOC is not a slip of the tongue I believe. The crossover methrans are trying to create a Syrian Orthodox Church in India within the Indian Orthodox Church which is in imaginary terms part of the Syrian Orthodox Church of Antioch. This way they are trying to catch innocent laymen and make their survival within IOC stronger.
The mainstream methran kashi in full throttle are in the process of making MOSC into Indian Orthodox and does not want anything to do with the Patriarch or the SOC. There is also this subculture within the methran kashi of individuals who consider themselves "were once pathrekese". The methran kashi think tanks used these people as armies to wipe us out. But now they are becoming the biggest headache for methran kashi. Which reminds me that anything and everthing that the methran kashi used to strike at the Jacobites only came back at them like a boomerang.
There are also talks within the Athanasios camp that he wants to get out of the IOC. Only time will tell what these three methrans are up to next. When looked back years from now, any one with common sense will label these three methrans as the biggest blunder for not having peaceful coexistence between the two churches. This "peace mission" project undertaken by these methrans was just a miserable failure. The scars left by their "peace mission" will still be visible on the Jacobites for years to come.
