Syro Malabar land deal: Proceed upholding Christ and truth 

Kochi: The archdiocese has made its stance clear in the controversial Ernakulam Angamaly archdiocese land deal.

In Satyadeepam, a weekly newspaper published by the Syro Malabar Church, it urged the followers to proceed upholding Christ and truth.

In the column ‘Varikalkidayil’ (between the lines), the last few lines of the article titled ‘Sudaryadayum Francis Marpappayum’ (Transperancy and Pope Francis) talks about the land deal, Mathrubhumi reported.

It explains that issues could be resolved if one proceeds upholding Christ and truth. The article primarily talks about the measures Pope took in times of financial corruption allegations against Vatican. Pope made every detail public and regained the trust of the people, it adds.

Earlier the Priests Council submitted a letter to the Church Synod to discuss the land deal issues in the synod which commenced on Monday.

    We preach simplicity and simple life style,but crave for luxury and liquor and all posh living. Then naturally Jesus who was the owner of all the earth and heaven and born poor in cattle shed is fully forgotten. We praise him, Francis of Assisi, Mother Teresa but we do not want to change our perception. So let us live and die like this. Neither Syro Malabar nor any other can help !

    The Church in Kerala will take years to have the transparency that we all wish and look forward. The reasons are many which are with clergy and laity.
    At least the approach the Syro Malabar Church hierarchy will take in the current scam will show the attitudinal change is for better or not.
