Re: Info on bishops (Mor Ahattulla Bava)
- Dear Moderator,
the posting of Mr.Zacharia Minnu about Mor Ahattulla
Bava is certainly underlining the involvement of
Antiochean Church with malankara church. a true
believer cannot disagree to it but to respect it.
but is it justifiable the act of malankara church
members of 30,000 who gathered there in Mattanchery to
save their patriarch who went out to take an oath
alone. why did they not request for the holy body of
bava for a respectful funeral in one of our churches.
that is the tradition of syrian church. when Mor
Ignatius Noorono the Antochean Patriach was killed by
putting to lions the faithfulls received the holy body
for funeral. we have historical evidence of the
killing of bava but we could not do to find out the
place of death, the disposal of the body etc. is it
not our duty to build a suitable memory to Bava in
Cochin back waters where he was drawned. i had written
about it in one of the earlier postings also. i shall
appreciate it if our respectful Moolayil achan tells
us about it anthoritatively.
