That they may have life, and have it abundantly.
The concept and realization of Major Archbishop’s Charity Fund in the Major Archdiocese of Trivandrum springs from the abundance of God’s love for His people that caters to not only man’s becoming spiritually developed but also physically improved. Ever since the assumption of the office as the Father and the Head of the Malankara Catholic Church, His Beatitude Cardinal Baselios Cleemis has written a responsible role himself to ease the burdens of life that haunt the people of God. His Beatitude believes that his participation in the Priesthood of Jesus Christ is nothing other than being united in love with the Lord and being extended in love for the fellow human beings. On the great occasion of the feast of his heavenly patron St. Baselios, His Beatitude sets himself with the gesture of receiving for the people of God. The contribution that is received during the occasion of the feast is spent for the social ventures of utmost importance for the cause of the poor. His Beatitude bases his acts of love and care on bold principles of human dignity, leverage, empowerment, interconnectedness, sustainability, social transformation and so on.
