It was through this forum that I had learned about the plans for ordaining two new Metroplitains. The news items are:
1. New Calicut Diocese and Rev Dr.George Mathew to be ordained first Bishop of Calicut
2. Rev Kozhiparambath Elias Ramban will be ordained as the new Bishop for Trissur Diocese
The first news item about the Calicut diocese appeared one year ago in Jan 2004. The second news item appeared in October.
I wanted to follow up and find out where we stand with respect to the above.

- Hello, It has been noticed for the past couple of years hat the Church Calendar highlights the Hijra dates along with the Gregorian date. Basically there isMessage 3349 of 3349 , Mar 1 9:47 AMView SourceHello,
It has been noticed for the past couple of years hat the Church Calendar highlights the 'Hijra' dates along with the Gregorian date. Basically there is nothing harmful in first shot, but there is a damage behind that.Hijra year is basically the year Muslims calculate as the year when they received Quran to them. My question, Are we Christians accept and acknowledge the same?St. Pauls says to Galatians 1: 9 "As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed."Keeping this in mind; how do we highlight Hijri year? Let normal calendar carry it for business reasons, but Church Calendar shall not...Please express yourself with comments....Rgds
