Jan 17, Colombo: Internationally acclaimed Sri Lankan catholic priest and theologian Father Tissa Balasuriya passed away this morning in Colombo.

A trained economist ordained in 1953, Fr. Balasuriya served in many capacities such as the rector of the Aquinas University College and the Centre for Religion and Society.

Although a recognized writer, he was excommunicated due to a book titled Mary and Human Liberation which he authored in the feminist perspective.

However, the excommunication was lifted in a short period.

Fr. Tissa Balasuriya suffered from illness for some time before passing away at the age of 89.

The funeral will take place tomorrow at the General Cemetery in Borella after a Holy Mass at 3.00 p.m. at the Fatima Church.
