Happy Fifth Birthday, Malankara World Journal!!
Born April 15, 2011

Today (April 15, 2016), we celebrate the fifth birthday of Malankara World Journal (In Kerala, they call it the sixth birthday.) The parent website, dubbed Baselios Church Digital Library, came into existence in 2009. So, Malankara World is seven years old now.

Malankara World Journal started as a small newsletter for Easter and grew to become a spiritual staple for our families. To-date, we published 344 issues. That comes out to about 69 issues/year - 260 weekly issues and 84 special supplements (about 17 specials/year on top of the weekly issues.). We never missed a weekly issue, in spite of other major commitments. Our special supplements have become collector's editions: especially the issues on LL Zakka I bava, Issue 100, Issue 200, Issue 250, Issue 300, Special Edition on Women in Church, Special Issue on Christian Persecution, etc. etc. Please pray that we can maintain this momentum.

We thank you for your prayers, support and suggestions. A special thanks goes to His Eminence Yeldo Mor Theethose, Archbishop of Malankara Archdiocese of Syrian Orthodox Church in North America, our Patron, and the members of the Editorial and Advisory Committee.

Malankara World Journal now reaches every corner of the globe. We are gratified that it helps people. We get lot of comments about the spectacular photos, the recipes, family articles, other general and inspirational articles, and, of course, our lectionary articles. Many of our achens told me that Malankara World Journal has become a 'must read' on Saturdays when planning the Sunday Service. I am really glad that we are helping people.

"Ellam ange mahatwathinayi;
Ellam ange pukashchakkumai"

We do it all for the Praise and Glory of the God. There is no hidden agenda. We do not seek nor receive funding from anyone. With God, ordinary people can do extraordinary things.

We hope that we can continue to expect your support.
