      The Indian newspaper "Mangalam" reported on 06-Nov-2003
      that the Indian Orthodox Church invited a Hindu priest
      /astrologer (oracle) by the name Raghav Achari to
      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
      Orthodox Church.

      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.

      In Christ.
