H. H Moran Mar Baselios Didimos 1st March 4, 2010
Catholicos and Malankara Metropolitan
Catholicate Palace, Devalokam
May it please your Holiness,
With due respect and humble submission we the undersigned, Ayroor Kuttikandathil Kudumbayogam president Fr. K.C. Mathews Corepiscoapa, the Vice President K M Mathew and the Secretary Sarala John here by ventilate our grievances and seeking favours from the President of the Holy Episcopal synod Your Holiness Moran Mar Baselios Didimos 1st the Malankara Metropolitan and the Catholicos of the East.
That, the late Dr. Thomas Mar Makarios Thirumeni belongs to Ayroor Kuttikkattil family. One of our family members Mr. Sony from the USA made a vow to offer a Trimass on the Day of Theremin’s 2nd Memorial Perunnal on 28th February 2010 and informed his desire to the concerned persons. Accordingly Fr. K.C. Mathews Corepiscopa (Brother of Macarios Thirumeni) met Bava Thirumeni and discussed the matter, and immediately Bava Thirumeni given an order to the then Devalokam manager Very Rev. Geevarghese Ramban to take the necessary steps towards the action objective. Accordingly for the Trimass H.G Dr.Thomas Mar Athanasios (Kandanadu), H.G. Dr. Mathews Mar Themotheos (London) and H.G.Yuhanon Mar Policarpos (Ankamali) were invited and they all had accepted the invitation.
Unfortunately the then Aramana Manager resigned from the post and Rev.Fr. E.M. Philip was appointed as the new Manager for Devalokam Aramana. So Fr. K.C. Mathews discussed the same matter with Rev.Fr. E.M. Philip the new Aramana manager and he fully heard and responded positively; but it was probably a sarcastic response.
Prior to the Memorial Perunnal service, Mathews Ashen had reminded all the three bishops once again but sorry to say that Dr. Mathews Mar Themotheos expressed his helplessness to attend the trimass as he is forced to leave the place for attending another programme as per the order of the Catholicos designate. But the Bishop did not inform his helplessness to Fr.K.C. Mathews for further arrangements. Nobody shall anticipate such an irresponsible and petty behaviour from an educated bishop like Mar Themotheos. After a verbal exchange Fr. K.C. Mathews suddenly contacted the Catholiocs designate by telephone and discussed about the trimass and he agreed to the same. Nevertheless, K C Mathews Achen again contacted the Devalokam Manager for the same purpose but at that time Fr. E.M. Philip inimically escaped from his responsibility pretending his physical unfitness. It was interesting to note that on the Day of the Perunnal there were two Bishops along with E M Philip Achen, the Aramana Chaplain and other three more priests were attended the Holy Communion at the Devalokam Aramana Chapel but sorry to say that the request to conduct Trimass was ignored and not allowed to celebrate at all. At last, Philip Achen and the power behind the curtain to enforce their dirty tricks were fully succeeded; but the desires of the people who all came from far and near to attend the trimass went astray.
Besides, it is pathetic to say that, it was indurate, inimical and iniquity on the part of the Devalokam Manager that on the tomb of Macarios Thirumeni censoring, reading promeon-sedera and other necessary prayers were not offered and even no respect and homage was given to the late great Macarios Thirumeni. Bava Thirumeni was totally ineptness, frigid and not even made a peep towards the tomb of Macarios Thirumeni while all the people were waiting around the tomb for offering prayers and seeking intercession. It is indeed a great mistake and callous trick on the part of the Davalokam
