Major Arch bishop Mar Baselios Mar Cleemis Ordained as Cardinal of Catholic Church

The Major Arch bishop of the Syro-Malanakara Catholic Church, Moron mar Baselios Cleemis is ordained and installed as the first Cardinal of Malankara Church by the descendant of Apostle St. Peter, Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI in a historical spiritual celebration in the St. Peters Basilica in Rome just now.

The mega event was witnessed by a large number of Indians particularly Keralites from many parts of the world. More than a thousand people from India including special guests from the Indian Political and social segment also witnessed the spectacular Spiritual event in Vatican. They included Union Ministers, top political leaders, Muslim clergy (Imam) and Hindu swamy.

After the  coronation, the new Cardinal said that he prayed and will continue to pray for India and specially for Kerala. With the installation of Mar Cleemis as a Cardinal (with voting right to elect the Pope), Kerala Church will become proud and blessed to have six Cardinals...!

Cardinals are considered as Princes of the Catholic Church though they wear 'red' gowns which remind them the sacrifices and persecution underwent by the Divine Master, His Apostles and numerous Martyrs. 

All the faithful must pray for the chosen servants of the Lord so that they become more and more humble as they get more and more high positions.
