JimFrom: "Jan Arrington" <janarrington@a...>Subject: Update on Little Josh Agosto -- Friday MorningDate: Fri, 26 Apr 2002 07:50:40 -0700Dear Ones,Godfather (Father Deacon Stephen Agosto) said that little Josh is�coming along pretty well right now.... he has some fluid in his lungs�which they are taking care of and has a little sinus infection. He�is reacting to pain in his limbs.�The main things that are worrying right now are�these: He needs to be�able to breathe sufficiently on his own to be moved�out of the ICU.Right now he is being backed up by the respirator�still since his�breathing is not deep and sustained enough by�itself. Also, he has no�gag reflex, and this needs to be, so that he will be�able to eat and�drink on his own without choking. Also, if he can�come to more, then he can begin the lengthy process of rehabilitation�right now while he�is at the hospital. Otherwise, if these don't�happen, he will have to�come home with full time nursing care or go into a�nursing home until�this occurs.�They will be doing a spinal tap to check on his�pressure and how well�it is doing right now.�Thank you so very, very much for your prayers for�us! We have come so�far in the last month! Please help me continue to�pray for this�little one!�Holy Theotokos, St. Joseph the Betrothed, St.�Raphael of Brooklyn,�St. Lucy, Holy Unmercenary Saints, St. John the�Wonderworker, Blessed�Olga of Alaska, Blessed Father Arseny, please pray�for us!God Bless!Love,JanEmail: janarrington@a...

Names can sometimes be very misleading !! Is "Marthoma "
church-the orginal church established by St.Thomas.(Marthoma)?
Many"innocent" people seem to think so.!! If the pride of
The Indian Orthodox Church is just the "Indianness" in it,
then what can be said of the patiotism of the members of this
community living abroad ? (Kerala Orthodox Church is more apt for
us who can never accept just any Indian into it )
It is important to understand here that the feeling of patriotism
is entirely different from the"' show of patriotism"(like politicians).
There are people-fanatic politiciaans like late Mr. Lohia who felt
that conversing in the national language is very necessary to be patriotic.
In my younger days there was a Vanchi geetham (in praise of the king of
Travancore).This song I loved those days (I should say )..
Does this imply any unfaithfllness to my dear country ? If I love
malayalam/english and sincerly serve country at border but is against
Hindi imposition I am less patriotic. ? So by calling the orginal
christains,of Kerala who were under the Patriarch of Antioh and
all the East,by the name"Indian Orthodox people'' and also saying
you are proud since theword Indian is added, is only cheap
'show of patriotism' . It is gimmick intended for these innocent,
gullible sheep like us.. It is like being in PMO ,office and selling
military secrets to Pakistan and claim to be patriotic and recieve
at Padmashree.. If your idea is to distingush the church established
in in 1912 by MM,Vattseril metran etc by calling it Indian Orthodox church
and rest of us have to be proud of that I will recommend the appropriate
name is MM orthodox church.
