ST.GREGORIOS, THE PATRON SAINT
At the turn of the 20th century, there lived a holy man on a haunted island, called Parumala, on the banks of River Pampa in Kerala, India. He was the prophet of his time, who set moral tone for his people. Powerful like Prophet Elijah and glittering like John the Baptist, he remains the beacon and a great Saint of the Malankara (Indian) Orthodox Church.
It was on June 15, 1848, that KochuIpeora was born as the youngest child in Chathuruthy family, Mulamthuruthy, Kerala. His parents Kochu Mathai and Mariam had three sons and two daughters.
He was christened as ‘GEEVARGHESE‘, at his home parish, the Mulanthuruthy Marthomman Church
Mar Gregorios believed that church should engage in educational activities, especially to facilitate primary education without discriminating gender or religion. Accordingly, His Grace started schools at various places in Kerala. His Grace left the earthly abode on 2nd November 1902. Later on, His Grace became the first declared saint of Indian Orthodox Church. He came to be fondly remembered as ‘Parumala Thirumeni’.
Being inspired by the teachings of St. Gregorios, many organisations acclaim Late Lamented His Grace Geevarghese Mar Gregorios(St. Gregorios) as their Patron Saint. Thus, even after his passing, St. Gregorios shines in the cloud of witnesses as a bright luminary giving rays of hope to millions in their suffering and struggles.
