Written By: on Jul 2nd, 2012 and filed under Columns, Features, Opinions.


Holy Bible – the Word of God, which we meditate day and night, is the pulse of life for every Orthodox Christian. Sadly, still there are many families in our diocese who doesn’t have a Bible of their own.

As part of the Catholicate centenary celebrations, OCYM – St. George Orthodox Cathedral, Abu Dhabi has taken up a humble step, to ensure that every Orthodox Christian home in our diocese should have a bible in their language, to be able meditate the Word of God.

The Cathedral members actively took part in this project to spread the Word, which enabled us to provide Holy Bible to the bible less families of the diocese in Malayalam, English, Kannada and Konkani languages as required.

Symbolically, on 27th April after the Perunaal Holy Qurbana, a copy of the Holy Bible was handed over to the Diocesan Metropolitan, H.G Yakob Mar Elias by the Catholicos of the East and the Supreme Spiritual Head of the 1960 year old Indian Orthodox Church, H.H Moran Mar Baselious Marthoma Paulose II .

Early June, Metropolitan Yakoob Mar Elias acknowledged the receipt of 506 copies of Holy Bible at Diocesan Head quarters and has conveyed his Blessings, love and affection for each one of us. Elias Thirumeni has stated in his email – “Thank you all for your special concern to give Holy Bible to Bible less families in our Diocese. May God bless you one and all and give proper reward. We pray that God may enable you to do more services to god and to His People”.

We take this opportunity to thank each and every member of the Cathedral for the motivation, contribution and prayers that they have extended to make this project succeed.
