Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ! It is indeed a great joy to address you in Christ as we patiently wait to welcome another year. As God is unfolding Godself in human history, we experience God´s presence and God´s mercy in our everyday lives. The past year must have been a mixture of experiences for all of us; we have gone through happiness and sorrow, grief and bereavement, love and hatred, health and sickness and so on and so forth. Yet at the dawn of another year, we wish each other – “Happy New Year!”
The Saint Thomas Christians or Mar Thoma Christians are a group of Christians from the Malabar coast (now Kerala) in South India that follows the tradition of conversion to Christianity by St. Thomas the Apostle. The different groups and denominations within the St Thomas Christians together form the Nasrani people , who also follow Syriac Christianity traditions.
