25 years as a clergyman

This day, May 23rd, twenty five years back I became a priest of the Malankara Church. As some of you may know I am not a person of celebrations. So I quietly spend my day with my relatives and friends in Toronto, Canada (Canada celebrated this day with much enthusiasm and fireworks.. guess why?). I am grateful to God for taking me, from a remote village in Ernakulam district, of Kerala, India this far. I also thank all those thousands of people who loved me from all over the world and helped me become what I am today. I should also thank those who do not agree with me and do not share my sentiments, as they also have contributed to making my personality, and I hope they will continue to do so that my life may become challenging and richer. I request you all to continue to pray for me that God may be gracious to me irrespective of all my shortcomings.

A Proud Child of the Church

Tariq Thomas from Puthuppally was selected with 35th rank to Indian Adminstrative Service. He is already a medical graduate. I congratulate him in his achievement. My felicitation mail.

Dear Tariq
Hope you and every one home are doing fine by the grace of God. I saw the news about your commendable achievement in MTV. I congratulate you and place you under the continued guidance of God that you may truly become a servant of God while in the administrative service of our country. Lot of things are getting changed in our great nation which got independence because of the vicarious suffering of the father of the nation, Mahatma, and many others. Now I am afraid this independence is being compromised in the name of postmodern economic liberalization. This affects the common people very bad. Many a time the bureaucratic community in our country is trying to make a fortune for themselves using this environment. I hope and pray you will work with a sense of love and caring that people can look up to you with hope for their better and peaceful life.

I send my greetings to your parents too who prepared you for this achievement.

Metropolitan Yuhanon Mor Meletius, Thrissur diocese.
