"The Cross that has been the cause of our good and by which our mortal humanity was set free,
O Lord, be for us a strong fortress. And by this Cross, we shall overcome the wicked one and All his devices."
This Site is dedicated to Rev. Prof. DDDr. Placid Joseph Podipara, CMI, popularly known and fondly called by the Malayalees as "Placidachan", the great son of the Syro-Malabar Church. He was the voice of the Thomas Christians of India of the twentieth century and stands as a towering personality among the ecclesiastical luminaries of India. Placidachan spent himself completely for building up the community of Mar Thomma Nazranikal in its genuine charm and colour.
