    Congratulations to our newly elected candidates. May the good Lord shower his choicest blessings upon them in leading the lost soul to the heavenly kingdom.

  2. Congratulations to the winning candidates and the voters to use their voting rights to fullfill the need of the Church and obeying our spiritual head of the Church H.H. Catholicos.

    The gallop poll result of The Orthodox Herald is exactly correct and even the order of the vote also the same. So I was just thinking that a gallop poll in Orthodox Herald is enough to find the Bishop candidates in future , so we can save some money (Just a Joke)

    The election of 7 new bishops are a welcome steps because we need young and energetic persons for the betterment of our Malankara Shaba. But last election there was an age limit but this time why did not have such a criteria for the selection. There is no fixed rule. It is always good for young generation to lead the Shaba under the supervision of their seniors. We should have a permenant rule for the selection.

  4. Best wishes for the the New 7 metorplotians and gratefull thanks for the all organisers for the big arrangements for the Today’s Malanakara Associations and Thanks for the TVM.Mavelikkara.Niranam/Cochin diocese for their distributions for this big Function.
