- Dear Mr.THOMAS,
When Maman Mappilai and vattaseril metran conspired to
establish A new catholicose by a suspended Patriarch
they thought About future generations?
Your present catholicose and bishops try to grab our
churches Or if that is not possible close such churches?

There is no cheating here. Entire Oriental Orthodox and Byzantine
Orthodox know the situation in India. There have been many visits
of Oriental and Byzantine Orthodox primates to the Malankara
Church. No Orthodox church wants 2 million of India's Orthodox
community to merge with Vatican or join Protestants. They all want to
see one Holy Synod and one head of Holy Synod in India. The problem
is that we are not ready for it. We are fighting because of our
typical keralite inferiority complexes and our inherent Keralite
natures. It doesn't bring any good for the future generation.
When are we ready for Orthodox Church leaving aside all our feelings
which we nurtured from childhood? Feelings are required, but
considering it as the ultimate truth is not a good sign.
