Ettu Nomb (8-day Lent) leading to the Birth of St. Mary, The Theotokos, on
September 8 begins on Thursday, September 1. Although this is not a canonically
required lent, it is one of the most popular lent in our church. Many people
vouch for the power of intercession of St. Mary. Malankara World will have
several special editions to help the devotees to reflect on what we can learn
from the life of St. Mary. These will be short articles. Each issue will have
only 3-4 articles. This can be supplemented by the archived issues of prior
years. We hope you will have a blessed ettu nomb.
Morth Mariam Yoldath Aloho (Mother Of God) Pray For Us.
