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 will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Memory eternal.  He was a pious ascetic, and had a somewhat wry sense of humour from my limited recollections.
"Do not tempt the Mor thy Mod."

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

My sins run out behind me and I do not see them, but today I am coming to judge the errors of another.

Memory eternal.
