India’s Eastern Church sees sinister plan to oust cardinal – UCA News

Renewed calls for the ouster of Cardinal George Alencherry from the office of major archbishop of the Eastern-rite Syro-Malabar Church are part of a plan to tarnish his and the Church’s image, says an official. A lay group in the Archdiocese of Ernakulam-Angamaly in southern India’s Kerala state has made public demands this week to remove the cardinal, saying a leaked report of a church-authorized probe has found him guilty in a controversial land deal. “The allegations against Cardinal Alencherry and the demand for his ouster from offices he holds are fresh attempts to tarnish him and the Church,” said Father Alex Onampally, secretary of the media commission of the Syro-Malabar Church.
