A detail from the Syriac version of the letter of Mor Dionysius I (Mar Thoma VI) to Pope Pius VI (1778 AD)

• “After the fact that they behaved despitefully and jeopardised this plan, I asked the illustrious Joseph Kariatty, from Alangad, student in the school for the Propagation of the Faith in Rome, apostolic preacher in India, in my heart, in many tears and in distress <…> the Saviour may grant that I end my erring. When he saw my compunction, <…> he was inflamed by my tears, and he promised in truth <…> that “I will go to Rome and nothing happens to me on the way and I will be anxious about presenting your supplication before the feet of our Lord, the holy Pope. For it has not been heard that the Church would abandon a penitent man.” Therefore I trusted his great love <…> because he took my cause upon his shoulders in order to bring it to Rome upon my behalf…”

Resource Code : CMS-008-212 Mar Ivanios and Bethany Movement By Sister Gifty, SIC

God, who revealed himself to human beings through various means, sent his own Son in the fullness of time and now He continues His mission through various chosen people. (Heb 1:1) He blesses mankind through them. God, when He called Abraham, said that he would be a blessing. The call of everyone, chosen by God, is to be a blessing. Archbishop Mar Ivanios was such a man chosen by God.

SyroMalabar Subhayude QurbanaKramam

Resource Code : 008-122 SyroMalabar Sabhayude QurbanaKramam

This is a digital copy of the first edition (1962) of the vernacular thaksa (Missal) of the Syro Malabar Church. This edition will be a useful resource for researchers on the history of the liturgies in Kerala. The process of vernacularizing the East-Syriac liturgy into Malayalam started in the 1950s, much before the Second Vatican Council (1964). The Syro Malabar Church promulgated the vernacular version on 3 July 1962. Interestingly, the first edition was a bilingual (Malayalam and Syriac) one. The thaksa retained about 19 prayers from the Syriac Thaksa and printed them in Syriac script. These are mostly prayers that the priest recites in a low voice in private, and does not require the people to respond by Amen. One exception is the rite of dismissal that the deacon proclaims (p.17) before preparing gifts. The Institution Narrative appears only in Syriac (pp.32-32). The clergy at this period knew enough Syriac to celebrate Qurbana in Syriac.

Bishop Mar Chandy Parambil -1687 article by Bp. Gregory Karotemprel CMI

 Resource Code : CMS-008-211 Bishop Mar Chandy Parambil -1687 article by Bp. Gregory Karotemprel CMI

Mar Chandy Parambil of Kuravilangad is the first native of Malabar to become bishop of the St. Thomas Christians. We do not have much information about his early life. Mar Chandy belonged to the Parambil family at Kuravilangad. One Kuriakose Parambil married into Kudukkassery family. The son born to the couple later became the bishop Chandy. He was born in Muttuchira. As a priest, he was the Vicar of Kuravilangad parish. Mar Chandy died in 1687 and was buried at Kuravilangad. It is believed St. Thomas ordained bishops and priests for the communities he established in India. But we do not have any historical record regarding the immediate successor of St. Thomas who ruled us. From 4th century bishops from Persian Church came and ruled us. ....... More

The Syriac Heritage of the Syro-Malabar Church article by Dr Joseph Palackal

 Resource Code : CMS-008-210 The Syriac Heritage of the Syro-Malabar Church article by Dr Joseph Palackal .

The Syriac heritage of the Syro Malabar Church is an integral part of the cultural treasures of India and the world. The Syro Malabar Church (about 4 million members) is the largest among the eight churches of the St. Thomas Christians, who were evangelized by the missionary endeavors of the Aramaic-speaking Apostle Thomas. From early on, the Aramaic (Syriac) language and music played a significant role in the experience of the Christian faith in India. In spite of the challenges from Portuguese missionaries in the sixteenth century, the Syro Malabar Christians zealously cherished and preserved the Syriac tradition. In the following centuries, they also adopted many liturgical practices from the Roman rite by translating the respective Latin texts into Syriac, and composing them anew in Kerala, thereby adding another layer to the already vast Syriac chant repertory. ..................

Guide to Syriac Transliteration

The sound of the Syriac language has taken a life of its own in Kerala. There are several Phonetic peculiarities among the various Syriac Churches of the St. Thomas Christians. For example, instead of doubling dalaṯ , the Syro Malabar Catholics add a nasal sound. Thus Qaddīšā is pronounced as Qandīšā. The finer distinction among Zayn, semakaṯ and sādē are not discernible

Reclaiming Syriac Chants to Reaffirm Identity: An American Story

The Syriac heritage of the Syro Malabar Church is an essential component of the cultural fabric of India. The St. Thomas Christians had the privilege of receiving the faith directly from the Aramaic-speaking Apostle Thomas. Probably, the early converts learned the original version of the Lord’s Prayer, which, in effect, is the entire Gospel in a nutshell, in the Galilean Aramaic from the Apostle. The exuberant outburst of the Apostle --- Mār walāh (“My Lord and my God”)
