Geevarghese Mâr Gregorios Chathuruthy (15 June 1848 - 4 November 1902) was the first native of the Indian subcontinent to be declared as a saint of any church. He was ordained as a deacon at ten years old, and priest at the age of eighteen. Finally he was consecrated as bishop at the age of twenty-eight. In addition to the many miracles he performed during his lifetime, he is maybe best known for his refusal to join the Mar Thoma Reformation movement created by the British to convert the remaining Nazarani to Protestantism. He is also known for his personal work in preserving the Indian form of Neo-Syriac, which he conversed in fluently and taught to many others. Although it is not the language of Yeshue, Syriac holds a special place in the hearts and minds of the Malayali people of Kerala, because it connects them to the Church of Antioch founded by Saint Yaqoub Bar Adai in the 7th Century. Photo by Hadrian Mar Elijah Bar Israel.
