    I cant wait to see the documentary. Theophelos Thirumani was a real stalwart of our Church. The one thing that still so fresh in my memory is the elegance and the spiritual radiance when His Grace stands up to adress a gathering, his deep and penetrating voice, scluptured words wre unique for Him. Let me mention an incident that happened in our life while we were members of St. Thomas Orthodox Church, Kalyan. We had to pass by a ‘sarpakkavu’ on our way back home (from Church and from a neighbour’s house). On Sunday evenings and in the evenings after a visit to that neighbour, our son used to cry unconsolably without any imaginable reason. One of the elder members of our Church thought there may be something to do with passing by the sarpakkavu and as per his advice we had Thirumeni lay his hands on our son and pray. In deed The Lord rebuked the enemy through His servant and our son did not have any crying episodes. Abhivandy Pithave prarthikkename.
