Notes

Revival of Crowning ceremony . Syro Malabar wedding of Joseph & Jiss, Kalathil

The crowning of the bride and groom used to be a part of the wedding ceremony among the Syro Malabar Catholics. At some point in history, crowning was removed. Recently, young Syro Malabar Catholics are taking the initiative to reinstate the ceremony into their wedding rituals; the many local Vicars seem to be going along with the wishes of the bride and groom. If the trend continues, the hierarchy may have to officially reinstate the ritual into the wedding ceremony. The video shows how the ancient traditions are finding a place in their conversations. We wish the very best to Joseph and Jiss Kalathil for a long and happy married life and many blessings from God on their family.
