Oxford Pershing Square Scholarship For Indian Students
St.Thomas the apostle also called ‘Didimus’ meaning ‘twin’ was one of the apostles of Jesus Christ. He is best known for questioning Jesus’ Resurrection after death when first told of it, which was followed by his confession of faith “My Lord and My God”. St.Thomas the apostle arrived in the Kerala state of India in AD52. He arrived by sea to the port of Maliankara, the present Kodungallur in Kerala. He preached the word of God and established Churches at seven places. St.Thomas after his fruitful ministry in the Malabar Coast crossed over to the eastern parts of South India where also he had many converts and then on he moved as far as to Malacca and China. Later returning to India he came to Chennaipattinam or Madras. Being infuriated by his growing popularity, he was chased by the higher castes and took shelter in a cave near Little mount which is the present Guindy in Chennai and when he was about to be captured he escaped from that place through a hole on the roof of the said cave and took shelter in the shrine which he had built on the top of the St.Thomas Mount, Parinkimalai in Tamil. His pursuers caught up with him there and speared him into death while he was clinging on a cross inside the said shrine. Later his followers took his slained body and buried him on the seashore at Santhome in Mylapore, Chennai.
At the St.Thomas day celebration at New Delhi organized by the Malankara Orthodox Syrian church on 18th December 1955, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, the President of India made the following observation in a speech “Remember St.Thomas came to India when many of the countries of Europe had not yet become Christians and so those Indians who traced their Christianity to him have a longer history and a higher ancestory than that of Christians of many of the European countries”. Christianity in India is as old as Christianity itself. Thus the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church founded by Apostle St.Thomas in AD52 is one of the oldest Churches with a rich legacy and tradition. His Holiness Moran Mar Baselios Marthoma Paulose II, Malankara Metropolitan and Catholicose of the East is the successor to this throne of St.Thomas and the head of the Malankara Orthodox Church.
