St Joseph

Letterhead George Cardinal Alencherry

Dear Archbishops and Bishops,
The XXU(2014) Session 1 decided to include the commemoration of St. Joseph in the invariable
part of the Onitha d’Raze with prior approval of the Apostolic See. The Apostolic See has given
the recognition for this decision as follows:
By a letter of 26 February 2014 (Prot. No.383/2014), Your Beatitude sought the
recognitio of the Holy See for the introduction of a commemoration of St. Joseph, Spouse of
the Holy Mother of God, into the pre-anafora (invariable part of the Onitha d’Razey of the
Taksa of the Qurbana of Mar Addai and Mari. This proposal corresponds to the deeply rooted
devotion to the Guardian of Our Lord that is already found among the Syro-Malabar faithful.
After due consideration, this Dicastery has no objection to the request, which seems
particularly timely in our day as evidenced by a similar step recently taken in the Latin
Church.
