      The late Malankara Metropolitan Paulose Mor Koorilos will be
      canonised as Saint
      by the Jacobite Syrian Orthodox Church. The Synod convened at
      Church in the presence of the Patriarch H.H. Ignatius Zakka I Iwas,
      ordered to
      start the process for this declaration.

      The declaration is based on the believers' witnessing of the miracles
      through the intercession of Mor Coorilos, who is entombed in
      Panampadi Martha
      Mariam Church. A special commission will study the witnesses and will
      give a
      report to the Episcopal Synod, who in turn will finally decide on the

      representative Mor Euyakim
      Koorilos. He continued his syriac education under the Malpans
      Geevarghese Kathanar and Koonappillil Geevarghese Kathanar.

      Kottayam, when he
      was deputed to oversee the construction of Trivandrum St.George
      Church, by the then Malankara Metropolitan.

      On 31st May 1908, Ramban Paulose was ordained as Bishop Paulose Mor
      Coorilose, along with Vattasseril Geevarghese Malapan, at Sehion
      malika in Jerusalem by the then Patriarch Abdoloho (Abdulla II). He
      continued the Church service along with the Late Michael Dionasius

      Mor Koorilose was commented for his simplicity and meekness as well
      as for his
      observance of lent, prayer and holding the true belief of the Syrian
      Church. In
