Written By: on Feb 1st, 2010 and filed under News, World News.

PUTHENCRUZ: The consecration of Ramban Geevarghese Thengumtharayil to the episcopate as Geevarghese Mar Barnabas was conducted at the headquarters of Jacobite Syrian Church- Puthencruz Dayara on February 1, 2010 by the Sreshta Catholicos Baselios Thomas I and the Holy Episcopal Synod of Jacobite Church.

Metropolitan was a student of Kottayam Orthodox Theological Seminary and a batch mate of Dr. Yuhanon Mar Chrysostomos, Mathews Mar Theodosius, Nathaniel Ramban and Fr. Dr. M. O. John. He was in charge of Panayampala Bala Bhavan for many years since its inception as a very dedicated worker. According to the Metropolitan he left the Malankara Orthodox Church for the politics and undercurrent tactics played by the leaders of the Malankara Orthodox Church.

The new Metropolitan is a strict monk, very straight person, dedicated his life to the ministry of the Lord. He had handed over his family properties to the Church and started Mt. Moria Ashram there. At Keekozhur, Metropolitan founded Mar Gregorian Study center to inspire the youngsters of the church to learn more on spirituality.

    the dispute is really related to faith than any other matter.

    while jacobites believe in the spirtual supremacy and grace of patriarch indian orthodox people dont like this .

    now in disputed churches which are in control of either faction those who want to continue their belief have to change their faith according to the control of church.

    Jacobites will never use H.G Barnabas thirumeni as a tool to capture any catholicos faction churches. Its a human beings freedom to choose which church he wants to. No one can question that.
    Just one more question, did H.G taken any common property of catholicos faction along with him when he joined jacobites?
    But at the same time u guyz see what MVPA Athasious thirumeni and Milithious thirumeni done and what they are doing now.
    Even an LKG kid can answer this
