Prayers Requested for His Holiness


Prayers are requested for our Father in Christ, His Holiness Moran Mar Baselios Marthoma Paulos II. His Holiness has been undergoing treatment at St. Gregorios Hospital in Parumala. The Primate of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church has been steadfast in prayer, and in positive spirits while in treatment.

Some months ago, our Chief Shepherd tested positive for COVID-19. By the prayers of many throughout the world, His Holiness overcame the coronavirus. In the recent days, however, Bava Thirumeni’s breathing became compromised and out of an abundance of caution, he was placed on the ventilator.

Currently, His Holiness remains in critical condition and remains under the close observation of the medical team at St. Gregorios Hospital. Prayers are humbly requested for His Holiness, that our Lord may be merciful to His faithful servant.
