The Reform of the Sacraments of Initiation in the Syro-Malabar Church
: Impact and Implementation of OE 12-141


Joseph Alencherry

The initial part of Orientalium Ecclesiarum (1-11) focuses mainly on certain ecclesiological and canonical issues, and the articles that follow (OE 12-23) deal with sacramental and liturgical disciplines. This latter set of articles starts with the rules regarding the Sacraments of Initiation, particularly in OE 12-14. This study concentrates on these three articles of OE, and its impact and implementation in the Syro-Malabar Church.

Benediction - Booklet (Malayalam)

പരി. കുർബാനയുടെ വാഴ്വ്

This booklet is a precious relic from the past. It comes from the transitional period in the history of the Syro Malabar liturgy in Kerala in the 1960s. The Syro Malabar Church introduced the Malayalam version of Qurbana in 1962. The Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, however, continued to be celebrated in Syriac. Fr. Abel Periyapuram, CMI (1920-2001) prepared a Malayalam version of the text and ritual for Benediction in 1968. What we see here is the digital version of the first edition of a 16-page booklet (10.5 cms x 7.2 cms) with the songs, prayers and the ritual for Benediction. Fr. Abel gave the title in Malayalam as Parišuddha qurbānyuṭe wāzhwu (Blessing of the Holy Qurbana).

Our Mission

Christian Musicological Society of India is an international forum for interdisciplinary research, discussion, and dissemination of knowledge, on the music, art and dance of about thirty million Christians in India, who belong to a diverse set of communities and linguistic groups and follow a variety of liturgical traditions some of which date back to the early Christian era. Founded in 1999 by Dr. Joseph J. Palackal CMI, the Society hopes that such researches will draw attention to the lesser known aspects of India in connection with the rest of the world.
