The Indian newspaper "Mangalam" reported on 06-Nov-2003
that the Indian Orthodox Church invited a Hindu priest

Devalokam Monastery, the Headquarters of the Indian
Orthodox Catholicose to foretell based on Hindu astrology
the right spot to construct a secretariat for the Indian
The newspaper also reports that the Hindu astrologer
(oracle) also said based on his astrological calculations,
the cause for the current confusions in the Malankara
Church is because the Catholicate Headquarters is located
on an un-auspicious piece of the property.
If this news is true, it is very shocking that an Orthodox
Church, that too the Headquarters of the Catholicose
will consult with an astrologer (oracle) to make decisions.
It is very un-Christian.
The original newspaper article in the Indian language of
Malayalam can be read at:
Can any of the Indian Orthodox members of this forum please
verify if this news is true or not.
I hope the above report is not true.
