      Thousands pray at St. Elias III 's tomb

      The annual feast of Syriac Orthodox Patriarch St. Elias III was held
      at Manjanikkara, Pathanamthitta with religious fervour on Friday.
      Thousands of believers offered prayers at the tomb of St. Elias III
      at the Mor Ignatius Diayro Cathedral at Manjanikkara. Believers from
      different parts of the State thronged Manjanikkara in processions as
      part of their annual pilgrimage in connection with the saint's feast
      on Friday.

      They were accorded a reception by bishops and priests, including the
      representative of the Patriarch and Metropolitan of Jordan and
      Jerusalem, Malkhi Murad Mor Sevarios, at Omalloor Cross in the
      afternoon.

      Geevarghese Mor Dionysius, Diara chief, Geevarghese Mor Athanasius,
      auxiliary bishop, Kuriakose Mor Diascorus, Archbishop Kuriakose Mor
      Sevarios, Kuriakose Mor Ivanios, Geevarghese Mor Coorilos, T.U.
      Kuruvilla, Diara secretary and former Minister, were among those who
      received the processions at Omalloor Cross.

      Transport Minister Mathew T. Thomas inaugurated the pilgrims' meet
      held on the Diara premises in the evening. Youhanon Mor Phelexinos
      presided over the meet.

      The Patriarchal delegate will lead the holy Eucharist to be held at
      the Diara cathedral at 8.30 a.m. on Saturday.
