      It is a very good thing that His Eminence cleared up the whole situation
      that happened at the Denver Church consecration. Many people were
      misconstrued about the whole situation. Thirumeni politely told them
      that they must step off the altar. Thirumeni should have not been put
      in this situation first of all.

      Whoever invited these Indian Orthodox priest who were excommunicated
      from the church, should have asked Tithos Thirumeni about inviting them
      because of the possible problems that would have risen....and which arose.
      Another thing that could have been done is, that when they invited the
      priests, they could have mentioned to them before coming to the church
      that there is a certain situation in which they are not allowed to get
      into the altar and that they would have to stand below.

      The idea was good that the church invited groups from other christian
      denominations but some thought should have been put about the possible
      problems that occured or would have oocurred. I heard St. Mary's is a
      church made up of members from other christian denominations because there
      are no other churches for their convenience. Many seem dissappointed over
      this issue and its great that Thirumeni cleared up the points because many
      were getting the wrong information here and other areas.

      We as a Syrian Christian Church under H.H. have to out and be with caution
      so future situations do not arise like these so certain people can take
      advantage of them.
