Aneede Sunday-Sunday of the departed faithful

Submit names for Aneede Prarthana for Holy Qurbono(2/3/13) at: 

Sunday Feb. 3rd is known as Aneede Sunday (Sunday of all faithful departed souls.) Our faith teaches us, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live even after dying.” (John 11:25) 

Through the glorious resurrection of our Lord and Savior, the barrier between the living and the dead have abolished. After a soul passes away, they enter into Paradise awaiting the glorious second coming on which our bodies will be united with the soul again.  

Till that dreadful judgement day, we cry aloud in saying “Kuriyelison-Lord have Mercy.” We also pray that our Lord may grant mercy to the souls of our departed faithful and that they may be granted rest and comfort, while awaiting the judgement day. 

Saranathaale nin kripayil
Maranamadanjoru daassare nin 
Stoumen kalos….Kuriyelison

They who served and died in hope 
Trusting in Thy mercy, Lord;
May Thy living voice them raise 
From their graves to paradise.
Stoumen kalos….Kuriyelison


Kohne( Sunday of the Departed Spiritual Fathers)

Sunday, Jan 27th is called Kohne and is a day that the Holy Church remembers all the departed Spiritual Fathers who have guided us in our spiritual journey. St. Paul reminds us “Remember your leaders, (‘those who have gone before you’) who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.” (Heb.13.7).

Let us remember all our departed Church Fathers. Thru our fasting and prayers may God grant them rest and comfort in the bosom of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

(May those feet that cleanly trod,
Keeping pure Thy Holy Place,
Tread the courts of Paradise
and with angels e’er abide.
Sthomankalos Kurielaison

Suchiyodu Sudhya beskudisa,
Sparsichulla padangal
pukkudhiana dwarangal
Vanavarothu Vasickenam.
Sthomankalos Kurielaison)
