Poothathil Thommiachan:

With immense joy, we extend our profound gratitude to the Almighty God for having elevated Rev. Fr. Thomas Poothathil, an eparchial priest of the Archeparchy of Kottayam, Kerala, India, as the Servant of God on January 26, 2009. Turning the pages of history, we recall the selfless service of Rev. Fr Thomas as the founder of the first asylum in the history of the Kerala Church and also as the founder of St. Joseph’s Congregation. The commitment and conviction in the person of Jesus made his vision creative and constructive. The source of his energy and vigor always rested upon the compassionate heart of Jesus. Contemplating on the Divine presence in and around the realities, he motivated himself to work hard for the downtrodden and the marginalized. Whoever had the great opportunity to meet Rev. Fr. Thomas would unanimously affirm the statement that he is a person adorned with integrity, sincerity and maturity. Read more…
