Weak and Sinful

[ From the reply speech made at the Pothenpuram Dayara where a a meeting to felicitate him on his elevation as Metropolitan was being held, presided over by Bava Thirumeni.]

“I don’t deserve any of these honours or praises. Personally speaking I am not eligible for this position. I am a raw villager born in poor Pezhamattom, one who could not even afford a robe. Yet I have something to pride in. Being the member of the Holy church of God for whose sake church fathers have sacrificed even their lives. I have only one thing to say. You should pray for me, weak and sinful that I am.”
