H.H. BASALIOS MARTHOMA MATHEWS II CATHOLICOS

H.H. Baselios Marthoma Mathews II was the Sixth Catholicose of Malankara Orthodox Church and 89th Apostolic Successor of St. Thomas. The life of His Holiness was a well-celebrated one and he lived his life to the full, the richness of which touched the hearts of millions and imprinted enduring mark on the history of Malankara. Being anointed to His Holy Episcopate by the descent of the Holy Spirit, Mar Basalios guided the Malankara Orthodox Church with diligence of a most devoted shepherd for fifteen years from 1991 to 2006 in his Apostolic struggle in the New World. ‘So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skillfulness of his hands.' [Psalms 78:72]

Mar Basalios Bava had departed from this world for his heavenly abode at 5.10 PM on January 26, 2006 at Devalokan Aramana in Kottayam. Valia Bava is not dead. He will never die because the Christian destiny is eternal fellowship with the Father Almighty and his services and dedication is enshrined in the memories of those he fed with the spiritual bread of life. His smile and spirit live with us forever. Metropolitan Basalios will never die so long as Indian Orthodoxy lives.

If the Spirit of God could hatch and form a new creation from lifeless material without form, and void; how much more the Spirit of God can work upon His living handiwork? Scriptures witness very authentically that children can receive the grace and blessings of God and above it they are chosen, separated and equipped for the special mission of God. Many early church fathers had witnessed in their ecclesiastical works that Infant Baptism was a holy tradition of the early century Christian Church.

CHRISTMAS MESSAGE [MALAYALAM]
Christmas is the greatest gift of God given to the world out of His abundant love. God has loved the world so much as to give His begotten Son for the world. Christmas is day God came down to the earth humiliating Himself and rejoined the world to the heaven. Christmas is a sacrifice and offering and was planned from the creation of the Universe. Incarnation of God was not for particular caste or creed, but it was for the entire human and the universe itself. When the Christians celebrate Christ they should offer themselves as a sacrifice for the world.

When we worship, we should have the clear vision, whom we are worshipping. Those who search God in glamorous situation or in magnificent Churches may get frustrated as God may not be available in such places. He is always seen in an ambient of humility and lawlessness. The worship of God should be to its fullness and truthfulness. God is not demanding for costly offerings but he looks for broken hearts and humble thoughts. Worship should be with all our resources what we received as providence from heaven.

During the inception of Church, the Church was one and united. But later, when the divisions and separations came to the Church St. Paul very painfully exhorted them of the consequences through his epistles. The Church being the body of Christ it cannot be visualized as different.
