      Today (2-11-2003) the Church commemorating the blessed
      memory of the Saintly Father with the offering of Holy
      Qurbono at all Churches in Malankara.

      Famous Quotes of
      St. Gregorious Geevarghese
      (Source : "VISION", a magazine of the Syrian Orthodox
      Archdiocese of Greater India, Nov. 2000 issue)

      [1] Avoid arrogance, quarrel and pride while dealing
      in Church matters; instead, let your humility
      shine before others. Those who place their trust
      in God, and satisfy the people are blessed.

      [2] As far as possible never do evil to anyone: or it
      will ruin you, your children and your house. Hold
      on steadfastly to prayer, fasting and works of
      charity. Do them with faith and devotion.

      [3] You must regularly read the Holy Bible. You must
      obey your spiritual fathers and increase their good
      name and honor before God and men by your exemplary

      [4] Those who disobey their parents and join their enemies,
      are iable to be cursed by them. They will not inherit
      the legacy of their parents and will be disqualified
      from this world as well as the other.

      [5] If there is quarrel in family, keep away from it. A
      quarrelsome house is the haven of the devil; and God
      is nowhere near it.

      [6] Be rich in love of man and love of God. Brothers
      should never cheat each other. When you move away
      from unity you are sure to move away from God.

      [7] It is not spiritual wisdom to try to conquer the
      enemy with evil than with virtue. If you depend on
      the God of Truth and go out with a truthful heart,
      God will accomplish things for you.

      [8] Loss and difficulties come when God moves away.
      On such occasions, never look for one reason or other.
      Instead, know that God has kept away because of your
      sins: then cling to God, he will show mercy upon you.

      [9] Prayer is the inspiration of childhood, the refuge
      of youth and peace during old age.

      [10]Forgiveness is strength. It gives a person a good
      name. It is the distinguishing feature of righteous

      [11]When we pray with a heart full of devotion, God accepts
      it and we receive blessings in return.

      [12]Whatever is due to the Church must be given forthwith.
      If your mind is pure in that matter, your house will
      also be pure. If in such things you think of any
      gain or revenue, then you will lose that ten-fold.

      [13]He who prays to God everyday would never be without
      truth morality, faith and devotion, and would never
      turn against his master or society.

      [14]Remember God in everything. Let no one grieve because
      ofyou. Never let go an opportunity to do something
      good. Only those things will remain with you till the

      [15]If man does not raise his hands in prayer for himself
      and for the sake of his people, even after knowing God,
      how can we say man is better than animals who are not
      wise and cannot think about their future.
