248 day Lent in he Month of September
- Nov 25, 2000To all brothers in Christ
The Roman Catholic Church observes an eight-day Nativity lent from
1st Sept. to 8th Sept. in commemoration of Virgin Mary's Immaculate
Conception and birth which dogma is not recognized by the Orthodox
Her nativity is, however honored by the church. The church gives
importance to Her `SHOONOYO' (The death of blessed Virgin Mariam
Variously expressed as Repose, Falling Asleep).
Then why our Churches in Malankara observed the 8-day lent on
Is it not leading to a false equation of divinity with that of Christ
and also to a false notion of deity both of which are not in
conformity with Orthodox Theology?
Is in any part of the world other than Malankara observe this 8 day
lent in our Church?
In God's Love
