Evolution of the Throne of St. Thomas in MOSC
- *Dear All*
Recently few Kalpana’s of various Devalokam Catholicose appeared in an IOC publication, and if someone carefully look into it one thing is very clearly evident that the Throne of St. Thomas is actually emerged in 1974 in Devalokam Church. In the 1947 Kalpana, Geevarghese II- just touches upon St. Thomas’s Throne (see the site:
The same Catholica removed St. Thomas’ throne from the letter head but says the Patron saint of India only in the last part, as HH Patriarch issues (see:
Importantly the Church was not united at that time and the case was still continuing. However, by the time 1970s the united church had already spitted as a result of Methran Kashi’s claim of St. Thomas’ throne, but in the two kalpanas issued by Mathews I catholica, the Patentee of St. Thomas’ Throne, in 1974, in one St. Thomas had been mentioned both as a patron saint of India and the Throne (see: Mathews I- August 24,1982:
while in the two Patron Saint was removed (see:
And since then ST. Thomas is no more the Patron saint of India. From these Kalpana’s it is very clear that Throne of St. Thomas is actually emerged in 1974 , which is contradictory to many of the IOC believers.
