Fr. Louis Maliekal (1936-2019) was one of the organizers of the “Indian liturgy” at Dharmaram College in the 1970s. One of the classrooms became a makeshift chapel, and the small group of students and staff squatted on the floor around a brass oil lamp. Fr. Maliekal wrote this four-line chant on the attributes of the word of God to be sung before the proclamation of the gospel. Fr. Thomas Kandathil (1942-2012), though not a regular attendee at the Indian liturgy, composed the melody. I was a regular attendee of the Indian liturgy and used to sing this chant at Mass. We would also use this text and melody during Bible services in preparation for great feasts. Thus, the chant became all too familiar to the Dharmaram community. Because of its popularity, I thought the chant would be a good fit for the LP record.

We dedicate this video to Fr. Louis Maliekal, CMI and Fr. Thomas Kandathil, CMI, two gentle and great priests.
