      Mor Koorilose Laid To Rest
      By SOCM News Bureau

      In an atmosphere charged with emotion, the mortal remains of
      Metropolitan Mor Koorilos Markose were laid to rest yesterday (May
      31, 05) at 2 PM at Pangada St. Mary's Church after burial rites
      attended by thousands of people. The late Metropolitan was the
      bishop of Niranom, Thiruvanthapuram and Kuwait dioceses of the
      Malankara Syrian Orthodox Church.

      At the end of the burial rites, H.B. Catholicose Baselios Thomas I
      anointed the body with "Zayt" (Holy Oil) and the Metropolitan of
      Kottayam, H.G. Mor Themotheos Thomas covered the face with
      the "shushefo" (veil) before the body was interred in the grave. The
      body was laid inside the specially prepared tomb in front of the
      northern Madbaho of Pangada Church by seven priests dressed in full
      vestments. By 4 pm the mortal remains were fully covered with
      frankincense and the great shepherd became a memory in the hearts of
      his bereaved flock.
