My dear brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ, This is the time when the Universal Church is celebrating the Year of Mercy. Let me express my joy at the observance of this Year of Mercy by all our lay faithful, priests, the religious and bishops. Holy Father Pope Francis has published the Apostolic Exhortation “The Joy of Love” in this Year of Mercy after the conclusion of the two synods on family life in Rome. Our faithful are receiving by now new directives and reflections through the writings of the bishops and of other members of our Church with regard to the renewal of family life.

Pray for Rev. Fr. Tom Uzhunnalil for his release - called by Cardinal Cristof Schönborn and Cardinal Mar George Alencherry

Fr. Tom is a Salesian priest abducted by the same terrorists who killed the Missionaries of Charity sisters in Yemen.  Prayer requests are made by Cardinal Cristof Schönborn and Cardinal Mar George Alencherry for his release.

 

It is important not to sensationalize these stories and rumours, yet equally important is the need to pray for Fr. Tom facing persecution and martyrdom at the hands of anti-Christian and others

Appeal of the Cardinal for Prayers for the Persecuted Communities

Dear Rev. Fathers and my dear brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ,

Wars are being waged in many countries. The reports of these wars that we come to know through the media are heart-breaking. The war between Palestine and Israel is very terrifying. Already 2000 people have lost their lives in the war at Gaza. The civil war that is taking place in Iraq is as terrible as the war in Gaza. Religious fundamentalists see people belonging to other faiths as their enemies and try to covert them through sheer brute force.

Dukrana 2014 : Pastoral Letter of Mar George Cardinal Alencherry, Major Archbishop

My dear brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ,

On the third of July, we celebrate the memory of St. Thomas, the Apostle of India, which is popularly known as “Dukarana”. It is also on the third of July that the feast of St.Thomas is celebrated in the Universal Church. All those who have descended from the Christian communities belonging to the seven churches established by St.Thomas are known as Thomas Christians. They now belong to the Syro-Malabar, Syro-Malankara, Malankara Orthodox, Jacobite Orthodox and Mar Thoma Churches. All those have embraced the Christian faith through the missionary efforts of these churches are also known as St.Thomas Christians.

Pastoral Letter from Cardinal Mar Varkey Vithayathil (Jan. 14th 2007)

Venerable Brothers and Beloved Children,

The Catholic Church has always considered its tradition regarding liturgical music as a priceless treasure. More than any other artistic expression, music is held in great esteem in the Church. 

The Constitution on Sacred Liturgy of the Second Vatican Council reminds us that music is given an exalted position in liturgy because sacred music forms an inseparable and indispensable part of the liturgy (SC 112).
