H.H Baselious Marthoma Didymus I; the Catholicose Emeritus of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church has entered eternal rest. His funeral will be held tomorrow at 10:30 AM Indian Standard Time at Mount Tabor Dayara (Monastary), Pathanapuram, Kerala State, India.  He was 94 years old.  He was the Mertopolitan of the Malabar diocese for a long time. He was enthroned as Catholicose in 2004. In 2010 he relinquished his position due to old age and health issues. He was succeeded by H.H Baselious Marthoma Paulose II.

Memory eternal.  He was a pious ascetic, and had a somewhat wry sense of humour from my limited recollections.
How can you be so incarnationally constipated?

Don't forget about oc.net's women ;)

Can we have one thread where it doesn't devolve into how many people are hot for Mor?

May God receive His saint.  Memory eternal.
Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

Lord have mercy, may he rest in peace.
"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die [...] These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -The Lord Jesus Christ
