Re: WHY OUR CHURCH MEMBERS ARE CONCENTRATING TO OTHER REVIAL GROUPS
- Hi Mathew,
I support you fully, Its high time to have a revival movement in our church, most of the poeple going with protestants are from our church and very less from catholic church because they already have revival movements in their church for long. Our Church leaders has to view this very seriousely otherwise after few years nobody will be there to call them as Thirumenis or Achens.

> Now-a-days there are so many revival groups became very popular within the Christian Community. Members from the Syrian Orthodox Church, Indian (Malankara) Orthodox & Catholic Church are also participating in their prayer meetings. First of all our Hierarchy (Bishops) should look into this subject and find out the actual reason why our members are participating in their prayer meetings. The fact is that if a person is hungry, he will hunt for food. What we are lacking ? Love, Affection, Care etc. I still remember that during my childhood if any of our church member is sick or if he is absent from a Holy Mass, our priest used to come to the house and make an enquiry and show his love / affection towards the church member.
