Are we brothers?
- Dear Brothers at SOCM
Is this forum for infighting within Jacobite faction? Why we have to
fight each other? Let us discuss things within Christian spirit. I am
sure there are Catholicose faction supporters in this forum. What
they will think about us? I think they are succeeding what they want.
They already got some of our Methrans; now through this forum they
will get some flocks also.
I saw members are pro and anti for the unity in Malankara. Both have
their own reasons. But members who are willing or sacrificing the
faith for the unity must understand the trap their. When all others
and we are try to get unity within the Church, let's see what the
Catholicose factions are doing through the electronic media. The
respected Dr. Babu Paul's answer to this forum members is become the
new weapon for them. Were ever they can post it they are doing it.
Same letter is already transmitted through the IOC forum with Yahoo
Groups and also I found same article appeared in the "Indian orthodox
Please go to their St. Grigorious, DC Church web page, under the
title "Vattaseril Geeverghese Mar Dionysius Metroplitan"
were you can see their attitude to Patriarch Of Antioch. In this
eleventh hour even they did not shown a courtesy of the respect to
that Ancient Patriarchate, which is given and honor by all other
Christian groups regardless their faith.
So please stop this infighting and let us discussed some other things
such as our faith, traditions, etc, so we can grow in our spiritual
life and faith. I am sure such as Fr. John; Dr. Paul, Mr. Jacob, Mr.
Daniel and many can help and contribute their knowledge.
Now regarding the Malankara let the God Almighty take care about it.
As long as the tombs of Parumala Bava, Manjinikara Bava, Kothamangalm
Bava and Sreshta Bava exist in Indian soil, our relation with the
Ancient Patriarch will continue.
Let us submit our church in the intersection of our father and
guardian Apostle St. Thomas
I fully support the views of Ajith, now is the time to work for the unity in our church. Instead if we go on arguing against our own faith in our own forum then naturally the opposite�faction�may become succusseful in creating a further confusion�in our Church.� So my humble request to the moderator is to scrutinise the�messages before posting in the forum.� Let this be a forum to promote Jacobite faith.
When�going through orthodoxherald.org, i saw in the latest news items the posting from Babu Paul ("A Statement By Dr. Babu Paul Of Patriarchal Side"), that was earlier published in this forum which unnecessarily criticizes the Jacobite position.� As Ajith as said, in this way the opposite side are trying to create much�confusion in our Church.
So my humble request to the moderator is to scrutunize all the postings before publishing it in a forum for promoting Jacobite Syrian Church. Otherwise it may create much damage than that created by the opponents.�
