    We can honor the memory of St. Geevarghese Mar Dionysius by seeking unconditional and complete peace with our sister church. Through this we honor our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We do not declare people saints because they are people of war and hatred and his life of exemplary prayer is a testament as to why we declared him a saint. I know through reading about St. Dionysius’ life, I know he endured much trouble, but sought for peace and love with all until his passing. I ask all our brothers and sisters to ask Vatasseril Thirumeni to intercede on our behalf and to pray for peace and Christian love to reign supreme in the Holy Church and throughout the world! God bless you all!
