    Saint Gregorios of Parumala is popularly known as Parumala Thirumeni. Metropolitan Geevarghese Mar Gregorios of the Malankara Orthodox Church who passed away on November 2nd 1902 became the first declared saint from Malankara (Kerala, India) naturally to be called, Parumala Thirumeni. He shines in the cloud of witnesses as a bright luminary giving rays of hope to millions in their suffering and struggles.

    Here are a few famous quotes attributed to Parumala Thirumeni(1848-1902),the greatest christian saint of India:

    [1] "Avoid arrogance, quarrel and pride while dealing in Church matters; instead, let your humility shine before others. Those who place their trust in God, and satisfy the people are blessed ".

    [2] "When we pray with a heart full of devotion, God accepts it and we receive it back in the form of a blessing."

    [3] "You must regularly read the Holy Bible. You must obey your spiritual fathers and increase their good name and honor before God and men by your exemplary life ".

    [4] "Those who disobey their parents and join their enemies, are liable to be cursed by them. They will not inherit the legacy of their parents and will be disqualified from this world as well as the other ".

    [5] "If there is quarrel in family, keep away from it. A quarrelsome house is the haven of the devil; and God is nowhere near it ".

    [6] "Be rich in love of man and love of God. Brothers should never cheat each other. When you move away from unity you are sure to move away from God ".

    [7] "It is not spiritual wisdom to try to conquer the enemy with evil than with virtue. If you depend on the God of Truth and go out with a truthful heart, God will accomplish things for you ".

    [8] "Loss and difficulties come when God moves away. On such occasions, never look for one reason or other. Instead, know that God has kept away because of your sins: then cling to God, he will show mercy upon you ".

    [9] "Prayer is the inspiration of childhood, the refuge of youth and peace during old age ".

    [10] "Forgiveness is strength. It gives a person a good name. It is the distinguishing feature of righteous people ".

    [11] "As far as possible never do evil to anyone: or it will ruin you, your children and your house. Hold on steadfastly to prayer, fasting and works of charity. Do them with faith and devotion ".

    [12] "Whatever is due to the Church must be given forthwith. If your mind is pure in that matter, your house will also be pure. If in such things you think of any gain or revenue, then you will lose that ten-fold ".

    [13] "He who prays to God everyday would never be without truth, morality, faith and devotion, and would never turn against his master or society ".

    [14] "Remember God in everything. Let no one grieve because of you. Never let go an opportunity to do something good. Only those things will remain with you till the end".

    [15] "If man does not raise his hands in prayer for himself and for the sake of his people, even after knowing God, how can we say man is better than animals who are not wise and cannot think about their future".
