Re: Fr. Abraham Konattu giving away his property to Orthodox church ?
- Dear brother Varghese,
Many people may not be aware of the fact that in the past, several families had to give land, money etc. Konattu family to get a membership in that church. Their was a high handedness of this family in the church since it was their private property. Also it is heard that lot of money had come from H.G Augen Themotheos who later became the first canonical Catholicose of Malankara who got excommunicated later.
