Re: IOC's unity moves with RCC
- Dear Mr. Mathew Varkey,
About the unity talks with RCC taken place in the
early twenties, what you said is cent percent correct.
Though belonged to a steadfast Orthodox family of
Niranam, my grand parents were one of the first to
follow Mar Ivanios when he formed the Reeth Church as
he was a relative of my late paternal grand mother
(she was from the Panicker family of Mavelikkara where
Mar Ivanios also belonged to). My late father possessed
a very good knowledge of these developments in the Church
and I had had the opportunity to hear from him the whole
story on many occasions.
Now it has become a fashion in the Orthodox circles to
simply criticize Mar Ivanios for all what had happened
while they totally forget their own faults which ultimately
led to the division in the Church.
Though I endorse your views completely, I would like to
add that it is a sheer waste of time convincing people
like Mr. Thomas P. who is trying hard to make his fantasies
