This video is made of my sermon at St. Mary’s Orthodox Syrian Chapel, Mannamangalam after the favorable verdict from the Hon. High Court of Kerala was pronounced for us to end the 18 long year stand off in pursuit of peace and unity in the Church. I delivered this on October 27th Sunday during the Holy Qurbana at the chapel. I was at Nagpur Seminary fulfilling my annual teaching assignment two previous weeks and was supposed to leave Nagpur only on Saturday to arrive Thrissur early morning of Sunday.
