Re: I pray that HH may continue to live long to lead the church
- Dear Dr. Babu Paul,
HH Moran is one of the saintly personalities in Christain world, today. The open mindedness of HH after the supreme court judgement of 1995 towards the unification of malanakara church is indeed laudable. As per the judgement HH Moran is the spiritual head of Syrian Orthodox Church and malanakara church is associated with it. When some group of people tried to read in between lines and make interpretations for their benefit it resulted in the formation of two
rival groups in church. They could make innocent clergy to dance to their tune. Since their actions were not with Holy Spirit the lapses and mistakes starated to enter. These mistakes got grown up into two strong groups. These groups became strong rivals and lost faith in between them. The two portions nurtured the split so that the split will never get healed up. But the malankara nazranees are one and they mingle together with families, make inter group marriages. The strong group leaders agree to give their daughters to protestant church while they argue for church groups with out any compromise on thrones, supramacy and independence. The recent episode I could experience is the behaviour of a leader whom lloved very much and respected who did the way Our Lord asked the woman that the bread of children is not thrown to dogs. We have become more and more divided with hatred. Jesus asked us to Love every one, pray for every one and comfort any one in distress. But these are contained to groups. Is this the faith of Syrian Church?. Still I belive that if we respect HH Moran as supreme head, HH will dissolve all the differences among us regarding the dispute. As per the Indian constitution no foriegner can make administrative power in side India except spiritual powers. The larger portion of our church faithfuls love to see an eternal peace without court cases, fights in parishes and church closures. A section of people for their personal benefits of positon, money and power create groups and use the name of HH Moran. You being very close to HH and have a pivotal postion in the church should lead the mass irrespective of groups and save our ancient church.
May the Lord give you the power of Elijha.
