Metropolitan Geeverarghese Mar Osthathios
« on: January 09, 2011, 10:10:34 AM »
I am curious if anyone on this forum has read, or is interested, in the Indian Orthodox Bishop in Kerala Met. Mar Osthathios? He is a somewhat well-known author and lecturer on social justice and the Christian faith, having been published by Orbis, and on the Faith and Order Commission of the WCC. He is traditional in his faith and piety, and speaks of the societal implications of our Trinitarian faith. I discovered him a little over a year ago, and enjoy him very much, o much so that I began emailing with him directly (he is now 94). I would just like to know if anyone else on here has read him, knows him, and if so what are their thoughts on His Grace?

Thank You

He is a great person. He was one of the Senior most Bishop and had a good chance of being the next Catholicose. But he declind and he has now retired from the Diocese administration.
