Re: Our Service Books
- Dear Mr Thomas,
MayIappreciate the scholarly way you have expained the the genuine doubts of the laity and agree with a common form and standard in the liturgical texts. I prefer the the authorised version to be published by the seminaryand approved at least by H B the Catholicose
Regarding the PAPAMOCHANATHINU MAMODISA ONNU MATHRAM,This doubt was raised by me about 40 years back to my Grand Father,Advocate (Late )Mr K P Abraham ,Kottalil,who represented the Church cases in the 1940-58 period in the High Court. , My question was then What about KUMBASSARAM. for the PAPAPARIHARAM .Then he corrected me that ONNU is ambigous ,the correct term should be ORIKKALto make the idea clear.From that day onwards I use to say ORIKKAL MATHRAM.Now the church hasto officially make a Kalpana to this effect.Let our REV Adai Achan study the point and recommed to our Bava for the orders
Praise the LORD
