Saint Stephen – By Father Gabriel Alkass

Saint Stephen - By Father Gabriel Alkass

In recognition of the recent feast and to honor our church’s deacons, Father Gabriel tells us the story of Saint Stephen, the early leader of the church’s deacons and our first martyr.
Stephen was filled with the Holy Spirit and also performed miracles. Three principles also led him as a lesson for us all.

1. Love for the Lord and surrendering to the Holy Spirit
2. Biblically educated
3. Filled with God’s wisdom and patience.
