    @Abrahamn exactly! Thank you, for taking care of Mr. C.M. Thomas’ ignorant comment.

    “Enthronement after a year sitting in the …..”

    This is a typical ranting from an ignorant malayalee layman ….no wonder our our Churches are not growing spritually. Mr. Thomas, if you are so God abiding & know so much as you claim, why don’t you don a capa and do the things our clergy does?

    Enthronement after a year sitting in the Throne.
    May be Church is copying American way of doing things.
    “Living together for a year before getting Married”as our
    young people do nowadays.
    We all need massaging our ego continuosly,and faithful
    folks are liberal to open the purse for any celeberation.
    Also a Chance for ‘Holy”fathers to make a piligrimage
    to the sacred “DOLLARLAND”under any pretext.
    Pray that Good Lord forgive those who commercialise
    His name.
