This is a greeting I sent to Sts. Baselius Gregorios Orthodox Church, New Jersery that is celebrating the 85th birthday and 60th year of ordination of their vicar Rev. Fr. C. C. Mathews. My friendship with him is about two decades old. His life has been a motivation to many young people. I like his attitude to Church, liturgy and life of humans in this world. I was so glad that the parish asked me to send in my greetings. I wish him long and healthy life. I also greet Kochamma at this pleasant occasion.

Twenty five long years! I was consecrated as Metropolitan of Thrissur diocese of Malankara Church and assumed office in a solemn function held at Mannuthy headquarters on 1990 December 26th evening. To mark the completion of those 25 years of long presence with God and with my priests and people in the diocese a “Thanks Giving Service” was organized at the headquarters chapel on 2015 December 26th. I celebrated Holy Eucharist in the morning to thank God for His benevolence and gifts He showered upon me and the diocese.
