      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
      Church.

      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
      September?

      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
