Grate lent message form Mor Cyril Aphrem Karim


ďOnly conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel.Ē (Philippians 1:27)

 

Dearly Beloved in Christ,

As we embark of the journey of great lent which will lead us up to the Feast of the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we wish all of you a blessed and acceptable fasting season. We ask the Lord, who fasted for forty days for our sake, to help you through this journey of faith and protect you from all evil.

Yours in Christ,
