His Holiness Baselius Marthoma Didymus I has entered eternal rest at 7.35 pm on May 26th 2014. He loved and cared for me so much. When H. H. Baselius Marthoma Mathews II bava thirumeni decided to resign, called H.H.and said that it was H.H. turn to take the throne of St. Thomas, H.H. in turn at 11 in the night called me up and said, "aboone I need a unique name., there are too many Thomas in the sky". I told H.H. "we will find one thirumeni" The name I suggested 'Dydimus' became H.H's official name. H.H. asked me to assist H.H. in Angamali diocese which I did for eight months. One day H.H. made a surprise visit to my place at Mannuthy. I asked, "What is the matter thirumeni, a surprise visit?" H.H. replied "my failure is that I have an innocent heart in this world of follies" quoting a poem in Malayalam (ee kapada lokathil aathmardhamayoru hrudaym undayathanu en parajayam). His Holiness was too disturbed by the atmosphere people created there. His Holiness was a true monk and an innocent shepherd. These are my personal experiences. I would certainly miss H.H. I request H.H.'s intercession on my behalf who is left in this world of follies. Holy father, a good shepherd, a true monk and loving father (Selun baslomo Qumro Rabo M'aliyo) GO NOW IN PEACE and pray for all of us.
