Let us pray, peace be with us:

"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."

(Syro-Malabar Qurbana)


 

Archbishop Mar Joseph Perumthottam's pastoral letter - a role model for all Bishops, priests and laity of the Syro-Malabar Church

 

The Nazrani congratulates and thanks His Grace Mar Joseph Perumthottam for having issued a pastoral letter on liturgical hymns in the March issue of Madhyastan. Liturgy is not a thing to be fabricated by any Tom, Dick and Harry by additions, deletions and taking unauthorised hymns outside Taksa, etc, but it is something given to us by our forefathers, the purpose of which is adoration of God, and to which we have to adapt ourselves, and not to make the liturgy something of our making or liking. With indiscipline and disobedience at its peak in the Syro-Malabar Church today, this pastoral letter is truly an eye opener for all the Bishops, priests and laity.
