Oh, Yes, I did read. Senility must have made me not to comment?

Thanks, Archie, and K.Com too. Alfred for reminding.

Article is very informative. Many unknown facts are learnt.

History must teach in our Parish catechisms, so knowledge will pass on to generations. Thank you Mr. Archie for your efforts

Normally me and many like us avoid responding to various articles published in this portal.

The recently published brief history of our Kallianpur deanery, in a way almost today’s Udupi Diocese a well written document by Archibald Furtado, explaining what has happened, how and why…?

It’s a controversy within the hierarchy not with the people of God, no tussle for rituals and faith, but supremacy, authority and power…..Yes few enlightened priests thereafter tried to rectify the errors but damage already done….Dr. G. Pinto rightly observed.

Conclusion looks practical…..forget the leaders we from both sides have no issues can mingle, co-operate, support, have marital relationship without any hesitation…..Let the clergy do their job and we common man live a harmonious life….

Thank you very much.

DR. Gerald and all:

There are more than 3500 denominations/divisions in Christianity. As a result of eating the fruit in Eden, I suppose. Divisions are nothing but gaining power or trying not to lose power. Any herd wants to control, even the chicken, fish, animals.

At least this way wealth is trickled down and shared even by down right helpless poor. In this contest, I do thank Fr. Alfred Roche for turning my loin cloth into a neck tie. He went out of his way to help others, even after death there is hardly just lukewarm support to promote his beatification cause. Just as there are Rosario and Milagris church in Mangalore city, and in Kallianpur too (Voily and Sakayli) there are two churches in Brahmavar (Barmarghar and ?) as well. Fr. Alfred tried to bring many a Brahmavar padthy families under Catholic fold and succeeded. I know many such families in Matapady, Mabukal, Harady etc.

Hope healthy discussions will not lead into defrocking. We have to learn from history, at least in this google age. Archie, you can face this. Yes you can.

An interesting material for a history student like me. If East and West Germany could unite why can’t two identical communities?

Daniel Montiero, Brahmavar

An opportunity close at hand for like minded people to unite after a break up that took place 130 years back.

An eye-opener to many like us who were always thinking that Syrian Christians in and around Brahmavar are hailing from Kerala, though they share the same culture and language like their RC brothers

DR Gerald Pinto, kallainpur
22/02/2019 20:14:50

Graet priest Fr Alfred Roche told me once- Educational department asked him to start a high school at Barhmavr perhaps then existing primary school. He tried his level best to get the permission of Bishop Valerian Fernandes. But Bishop did not agree. If agreed in Brahmavar there would have been an education hub of Catholics. But I don’t regret at least our Syrian brothers have taken up this task. This happens if we have religious leaders without any vision.

Dr Gerald Pinto, kallianpur
22/02/2019 20:08:04

Church histrouy in most of the cases is politics of power. Goa and Veraplooy, Padrevado-Propoganda all were struggle for power. The power hungry superiors even not spared holy now Saint Joseph. Prior to Sism of Brahmavar Mt Rosary went away, Ok that time . Same thing happened in Shirva but two churches united and build single church. Do we need two churches within one KM and fight for many things including competition for educational institutions if we believe in one Christ. Jesus had only one mother any one disagree?
1857 episode was the plot of Goan Bishop executed by Rev Fr David Pereira then priest, but he was withdrawn by the Bishop because of warning of Pope because of treaty between Vatican and Portugal. We aly people fight among ourselves but what are we according to Cannon law? Has the vice president has any right? If Bishop Bishop wants there can be Parish council other wise need not. 90% of parishes in India there are no Parish councils that we have in Mangalore in Udupi. They are there due to dynamic bishop Basil such Bishop we have yet to see.

How do we know Alfred about the great works unless someone writes and publishes about it?
By the time DO GOOD puts on its shoes, negative news travels half way around the world they say.

Why people clap? To encourage, I suppose. Feel good.

Marvellous article telling us (both Roman Catholic and Syrian brothers) about our own past.

There is also a silver lining, a ray of hope for unification if both the laity and the clergy (of both the communities) agree...

Thomas D Souza, Kemmannu

Myself was trying to solve the puzzle as to why people with similar religious practices and backgrounds are in different sects of Christianity, in some cases a divided family with Son and Father in different faiths.

This article by Archi is well researched and has cleared most of my doubts.

Wow, what an information about our history.

I am sure most of us who were in dark so long has some information, thanks to the writer who took time and effort to put them together for the benefit of our present and future generations.

God bless.

An informative article. Narrates many things about our ancestors which most of us do not know. In my opinion so far nobody has written this much extensive about erstwhile Kallianpur Varado (more or less today’s Udupi Diocese)
