Re; Denver Church Incident
- Dear ALL,
I have read Dr.Sally's first report and comments by many of IOC
members in which they have projected us as unchristain. Now I
have read our bishops reply and again the reply by Dr.Sally's
reply in IOC forum as an innocent angel to our bishops reply.
By all this they serve their end of giving bad publicity
to SOC.In all these cases, where we failed is, not putting this
people where this belong.
I would like to invite our attention to what Jesus did to such
people, while entering the Jerusalem church. What the best would
have been such a tretament for those priests. Only such language
these people understand. We should remember what prevented Mathews
Catholicose from trying come to Manarcad church.
These things happen when we try to be too good(nallapilla) I have
seen some of our priests and members (especially in Bangalore),
inviting such IOC priests into our church also. (This is one way
to earn cheap popularity.)
In Malayalam there is a saying.'Erikendidathu Erunnal cherekendiyavan
cherakkum.' We shall first be clear about out beliefs and practices.
On personal ground I do not consider these excomminicated bishops, as
bishops and priests. so they do not deserve any religous considerations.
