Mor Koorilose Laid To Rest
By SOCM News Bureau

In an atmosphere charged with emotion, the mortal remains of Metropolitan Mor Koorilos Markose were laid to rest yesterday (May 31, 05) at 2 PM at Pangada St. Mary’s Church after burial rites attended by thousands of people. The late Metropolitan was the bishop of Niranom, Thiruvanthapuram and Kuwait dioceses of the Malankara Syrian Orthodox Church.

At the end of the burial rites, H.B. Catholicose Baselios Thomas I anointed the body with "Zayt" (Holy Oil) and the Metropolitan of Kottayam, H.G. Mor Themotheos Thomas covered the face with the "shushefo" (veil) before the body was interred in the grave. The body was laid inside the specially prepared tomb in front of the northern Madbaho of Pangada Church by seven priests dressed in full vestments. By 4 pm the mortal remains were fully covered with frankincense and the great shepherd became a memory in the hearts of his bereaved flock.

WOW, other than Ethiopian vestments, I think the Syrian/Indian vestments that bishops wear are the most beautiful.
