His Grace Job Mar Philoxenos, the youngest son of Kanianthra Thomas and Achamma, was born on 8 May 1939, in Mepral, a village near Tiruvalla. His Grace spent his formative schooling in Mepral and subsequently joined the Mount Tabor Dayara when he was 16 years old. Sacrificing a life of material comfort he chose the austere discipline of a monastic calling, influenced by none other than his dear mother and inspired personally by his maternal uncle the Catholicos at that time, His Holiness Baselios Geevarghese II. The Catholicos entrusted the school-age boy to the care of Metropolitan Thomas Mar Dionysius, the founder and head of the Mount Tabor Dayara, a socio- spiritual enterprise that sought to re-live the communitarian ideal of the Early Christians. The life and work of Mar Philoxenos reflected the spirit of Mount Tabor Dayara, which emphasized the virtue of dedicating individual lives to an austere discipline, in a common effort toward prayerfully agreed social endeavors. His Grace was ordained a Deacon on 26 May 1956, a full Deacon on 3 November 1961 by Moran Mar Baselios Geevarghese II and a priest on 11 May 1972.
He is remembered for his untiring efforts in striking up personal relationships with active members in each parish of the Orthodox Church, visiting all the Churches and congregations from Jaisalmir, a congregation in the Pakistan border, to UAE. His untiring support of fellow priests through difficult times has not gone unnoticed. Thirumeni looked to the future and to include the future generations of Orthodox members he started a new spiritual organization Diaspora, conducted conferences and meetings with an eye toward inclusiveness and ecumenism. Finally, through the melodious voice of Thirumeni we have been blessed to enjoy the sweetness and beauty of our worship. Perhaps, one can call H.G the real Vanampady of Orthodox Church.
