FAITH AND WORKS

Nov 05, 2020

Faith is “a confidence or trust in God”. Faith gives assertion to the things we hope for and explains the things that we cannot see.

The Mesekel holiday is celebreated on Meskerem 17 (27th of September) and Megabit 10 (19th of March). The word Meskel means, Cross, and the feast commemorates the finding of the True Cross by St. Helena.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, One God. AMEN.

“And He changeth the times and Seasons” Ps.65:11

On behalf of the Church, it gives me great pleasure to congratulate Eritreans at home and abroad in general, and Christians in particular, as well as the bedridden in hospitals, the diligent health workers and care givers, members of the armed forces, and the detainees in the rehabilitation centers, on the solemn occasion of the advent of the Head Anniversary (the New Year of the Church).

Moreover, Whilst John the evangelist was preaching in the country of Asia, on the sixteenth day of the month of Nahasse, he was caught up in the spirit to the Garden of Delight, and he saw our Lord Jesus Christ sitting by the Tree of Life, where was the body of our Lady Mary, and He commanded His Seven Angels to summon her from the Garden of Delight. And they said unto the Garden, “God, our Lord Jesus Christ, commandeth that the body of His pure mother shall go forth.

"At your right hand stands the queen." (Psalm 45:9)

IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER AND THE SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, ONE GOD. AMEN.

Today we celebrate the feast of the commemoration of the Ascension of the pure body of Our Lady Mary, the God-bearer, into heaven. This feast is celebrated at the end of a two week long fast, the tsome filseta, as per the order of Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, and His holy apostles

This fast lasts from Nehassie (August) 1 to 16. Our Lady departed on 21 of Ter (January) in 50 A.D. while the Apostles were taking her body for burial at Gethsemani, the Jewish priests dispersed them.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, One God Amen.

The basic necessities of life are, as Joshua Ben Sirach in his book says “water, and bread, and clothing, and an house to cover shame.” Sirach 29:2. Those who can’t afford these necessities are termed as “poor”. Of course, those who need help are not only the poor but also the terminally ill, disabled, the orphaned and elders who do not have care takers.

Saint Paul was a Jew, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee; and his kinsfolk called his name “Saul,” the well-known interpretation of which is, “given.”  He was a young man of handsome appearance, upright in stature, and ruddy, like the rind of a pomegranate.  His face was open, his nose was large, above his eyes was kohl, his cheeks were [like] an open rose, and his beard was full.  He was learned in the Law of the Torah, and he was jealous for the same.

Peter was from Bethsaida, and he was a fisherman.  Our Lord chose him on the second day following that whereon He was baptized, and He chose Andrew his brother before him.  And having chosen Saint Peter, He made him chief of the apostles, and he continued to minister to our Redeemer until the time of His death and Passion.  He had fervent faith, and strong zeal, and love for God.

Every week Wednesdays and Fridays are observed as fast days except during the fifty days (between Easter and Pentecost), and on the days of Christmas and Epiphany, when these feasts fall on these days. The reason why Wednesdays and Friday are fast days is as follows.
