Good Friday: The Story of Our Salvation - By His Eminence Mor Dionysius John Kawak

Knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the future might be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I thirst.” Now, a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there filled with hyssop. “It is finished,” he said, and bowing his head he gave up his spirit.

Palm Sunday

It is Palm Sunday. Why did you come to church today? This will determine your eternity. When Jesus was entering Jerusalem, he was giving a small image of saving us. We should always be prepared to call “Lord, save me,” so when he comes for the second coming, we will be ready to enter His Kingdom. We always have to correct our direction, so we don’t lose our spiritual way and lose our eternity. This is exactly what happened when Jesus entered Jerusalem.

The Amazing Faith - By Father Andrew Bahhi

Faith is the key to heaven. On earth you may need money to get what you want, but to get heaven all you need is faith. Faith is also very important in the Bible. Nothing amazed the Lord while he was on earth except belief and unbelief. When the Lord was in his hometown, Nazareth, he faced criticism. As we read in Mark 6:5-6, he faced unbelief. Is He the Savior or not? Is He the one who brought salvation to everyone, or not? Is He the one who went through villages,......

Light and Repentance - By Father Andrew Bahhi

Starting with the first Sunday after Epiphany, and for the next 8-10 weeks, we will read about all the things the Lord did after His baptism. As we read in Matthew 4, the first sermon our Savior gave, He says “Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” This is how our Savior began His mission and serve while He was on earth. For the people who were without light, this means the light of the Lord came to them. When our spiritual light is on, we have power. But when......

Epiphany

Father Andrew speaks with us to celebrate Epiphany: I would like to wish everybody a happy, healthy and a very good time this year.

We believe that the power of the light is stronger than any bad thing. That is why we are still here, witnessing, praying with hope that no matter what we face,......

Nativity of John the Baptist

In the book of Luke 1:58, it says “when Elizabeth’s neighbors heard about the birth of John the Baptist, they rejoiced with her.” The is a time when the Lord showed great mercy to Elizabeth and Zachariah. For the things we pray for and don’t get an answer, or we are confused to make a decision, or have a need, the prayer is the perfect shelter and place to go so we can receive comfort and faith that God will answer. When we keep praying. The difficulties of understanding the work of......

Virgin Mary Meets Elizabeth

We are getting closer and closer to the birth of our savior. Today, we’ll discuss the visitation of the Virgin Mary to Elizabeth. Last week we spoke about the angel Gabriel meeting with Mary, and she accepted, “Let it be to me according to what you said.” The angel then gave a sign that Elizabeth is pregnant. And then Mary ran to see the beautiful fulfillment of the birth of John the Baptist. Luke Chapter 1 offers another angle. How our spiritual life can impact our social life. Today’s text is giving......
