Witnessing various falsehoods written in both the forums by misguided
people I felt it logical enough to reproduce the true version of the
Church History written by none other than the most Rev Malankara
Malpan Dr Kanyamparambil Achen.
I humbly implore this forum to kindly reproduce the article as it is,
so that the faithful could have a clear view about the happenings in
this church for the past 100 years. This article starts from page 173
of the book. However only select but important portions (relevant in
this context) have been written along with my very small observations
in the spare time I could afford because of my busy schedule.
I do not know if this book is available anymore but I sincerely
exhort every faithful to try to get at least a copy of it.
THE SYRIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH IN INDIA AND ITS APOSTOLIC FAITH
Resignation again! Mor Augen Catholicos and his followers thought
that on 24th September that he had sound health to continue
as `Catholicos' but on October 11th, exactly 17 days later, they
found that he had to resign form the dignity of the Catholicos! The
only reason `old age'!!
He had been too old to discharge the duties of the Catholicos! And
what were those duties?
Consecrating the metropolitans and Holy Mooron through the proper
Channel. In the circumstances there were absolutely no need for
neither! Why we dwell on the obvious motive? And how the masterminds
of Devalokam could have the satisfaction that all powers become
vested on Mor Mathews Athanasius!
Mor Augen Catholicos Passes away
Mor Augen Catholicos passed away on 8th December 1975 and was
entombed at the Devalokam chapel. His death anniversary is
commemorated there with a `Moonnumel Qurbana' while that of his
predecessor is a day of pompous festival!!
Note: How many metran kakshis know the date of the death anniversary
of Mathews I now?
all these are the curse of the Most High on them..What else
would be the reason?
In spite of all the influence they put on the political and judicial
fields the Holy Spirit in strange ways is sustaining the Jacobite
Church in Malankara. It can only be attributed to the same faith of
the Patriarch David in the Old Testament!
