Commemoration of St.Mary the Blessed Virgin /Doukhrana D' Mart Maryam Btoolta Qadeshta

Written by Josephine Minas   

Father in heaven,
all creation rightly gives you praise,
for all life and all holiness come from you.
In the plan of your wisdom
she who bore the Christ in her womb
was raised body and soul in glory to be with him in heaven.
May we follow her example in reflecting your holiness
and join in her hymn of endless love and praise.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

We always thank God,
the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you,
because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus
and of the love you have for all God's people –
the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven
and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel that has come to you. (Colossians 1:3–5)

Lord our God,
we praise your name because we are allowed to bear witness to what we see and hear,
to all the good you have given us.
May we become firmly and faithfully united,
awaiting the glorious day when your almighty hand will be victorious
and will bring an end to the many evils among us.
On that day you will be praised
throughout all nations and everything will be clothed anew, to the glory of your great name.
In Jesus Name we pray,


Fasting from Anger

Written by Josephine Minas   

My dear brothers and sisters in faith,

I greet you in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus The Christ.

Today the Second Sunday of Lent (Sowma) I preached about the necessity of Sowma and what our focus should be on, and I thought it would be beneficial if I share our decision with you through social media.

We are asking everyone to join us this week in fasting from anger, yes anger. I am asking everyone for the next six weeks to join us as we fast every week from a certain weakness that is destroying our self, family, friends, and the community at large. We are starting today, Sunday the 14th, with anger, no matter what happens to you this week you will not get angry. How is this possible, you might ask, “all things are possible through Christ our Lord” the Bible says. Pray about it every day, multiple times if you need daily.

This does not mean that we don’t observe fasting from certain kinds of food, we continue to do that, but that is not the focus of Sowma, that should only serve as a reminder about the spiritual cleansing we are going through.

Please join us and spread the word, let us defeat Satan and enjoy life as it is meant to be.

With Love and Blessings,

Cor-Bishop George Bet-Rasho.

Happy Valentine’s Day
