Dear Readers,

Peace and Grace to you all,

“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying.

There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” (Rev 21:4)

 

On behalf of the monks of St Shenouda Monastery, we pray for the repose of the souls of those who were martyred during the New Year Eve bombing outside St Paul and St Peter Church in Alexandria. We also ask our savior to console the families of those martyrs. May our gracious Lord bring peace and comfort to their hearts. We pray for His Holiness Pope Shenouda III and the whole church on this sad day of our history.

We would like to invite you to share with us a Divine Liturgy on Saturday the 8th of January 2011 at 9:00am – 12:00pm, in commemoration of our beloved martyrs.

On the 14th day of this month the Church celebrates the feast of our beloved saint, St Shenouda the Archimandrite. On behalf of all the monks of the monastery I would like to wish you all a happy feast of St Shenouda and to dedicate this issue to our beloved saint.

I would also like to apologies for not being able to be present at the celebrations, as I will be attending the 55th anniversary of the monasticism of our beloved father H.H. Pope Shenouda III.
