Update on His Grace Mathews Mar Barnabas, Metropolitan

The following memo was issued today by His Grace Zachariah Mar Nicholovos, Metropolitan:

Dearly beloved,

This is to inform your that our beloved Vailya Thirumeni has been discharged from San Joe Hospital, Perumbavoor, Kerala, India. As per the consultation of His Holiness with us, His Holiness has decided that Barnabas Thirumeni will be continuing his retirement at Pampady (Pothenpuram) Dayro.

We are indebted to the kindness of His Grace Geevarghese Mar Ivanios, Metropolitan of Kottayam Diocese, and Rev. Fr. Mathew K. John (Mathukutty), Manager of the Dayro, for their kindness, love, and support by offering their Diocesan Institution to care for our Vailya Thirumeni.

Barnabas Thirumeni is doing better than before.  He is able eat solid foods. We have attached a picture of Thirumeni taken by Rev. Dn. Abraham (Abey) George, His Grace's former secretary in the very recent time.

We request your continued prayers for our beloved Vailya Thirumeni.

Yours in our Lord,
Zachariah Nicholovos Metropolitan
