  1. Let us pray that the ceremony should take place as planned as the Godgra case verdict is to be annouced today and security is being tightened around Ahmedabad.Hope that nothing untoward will happen as His Holiness the Catholicose
    and many dignitaries are expected to attend the function.
    2.There are 3 Catholicoses in Kerala.
    a)Mar Baselius clemis(self proclaimed malankara reeth Catholicos)
    b)Mar Baselius Thomas I(Mafryana for the Patriarch)
    c)Mar Baselius Paulose II(some reporters are adament that they will not follow our
    church policy the way our supreme head should be addressed.)
    But the fact is that it is not going to deminish or belittle the status or position of our
    Bava thirumeni at all.They redicule themselves by doing so.
