My Greetings to C C Mathews Achen


This is a greeting I sent to Sts. Baselius Gregorios Orthodox Church, New Jersery that is celebrating the 85th birthday and 60th year of ordination of their vicar Rev. Fr. C. C. Mathews. My friendship with him is about two decades old. His life has been a motivation to many young people. I like his attitude to Church, liturgy and life of humans in this world. I was so glad that the parish asked me to send in my greetings. I wish him long and healthy life. I also greet Kochamma at this pleasant occasion.

My Talk at the Acolytes Training


Me.jpg

We in Thrissur Diocese bring in the Acolytes of the Churches in the diocese twice a year for refreshing their memory on how an Acolytes should do his duties in the Church. No one is allowed to be in the Altar if he does not attend at least one meeting in a year. We also have regular examinations conducted to refresh the memory of things in the Acolytes Handbook published by the diocese (this was recommended by the Holy Episcopal Synod for use in all dioceses and was distributed among Their Graces the Metropolitans.  Delhi diocese has reprinted it for to be used by their Acolytes). This was the second meeting of the year.

My Comment on Currency Withdrawal Issue


On Currency Issue.jpg

My comment on recent withdrawal of 500 and 1000 Rupee notes by the government of India without any home work which caused a lot of inconvenience and suffering to the general public. On the other hand corporates and rich people got the news leaked out well ahead and had enough time to take care of counterfeit notes and black money. This comment appeared in Dasabhimani daily November 18.
