Holy Father approves the suspension of Fr. Eldhose Koungumpillil
- The Patriarch of Antioch and all the East has approved the disciplinary action that the Patriarchal Vicar of UK, Mor Coorilos Geevrghese has initiated against Fr. Eldhose Koungumpillil. Through Apostolic Bull No.E 154/09 dated 23 September, 2009, the Holy Father has approved the suspension of Fr. Eldhose Koungumpillil. His Holiness has also directed Fr. Eldhose to obey Mor Coorilos and strictly comply with the bull of Mor Coorilos and directed him not to function as a priest until his suspension is revoked. The Patriarch, in the Apostolic Bull, has also reminded him that similar disciplinary action had to be taken against him in 2003 and prayed that he would this time sincerely repent. Fr. Eldhose has also been directed by the Holy Father to immediately contact His Beatitude the Catholicose of the East and the Patriarchal Vicar for U.K., Mor Coorilos Geevrghese and sort out the issues.
Let us all continue to pray for the repentance of Fr. Eldhose and hope that he would stop collaborating with �methran kakshi� people and discipline himself, at least this time.
