Friday, 28th November 2014 --- 19 Hatour 1731
The Nineteenth Day of the Blessed Month of Hatour
Consecration of the Church of St.Sergius
This day marks the consecration
of the church of St. Sergius and St. Bacchus in the city of Rusafa. When
St. Sergius was martyred in this city, some believers carried his body,
prepared it for burial, hid it in their home and lit lamps and candles
before it. When the era of persecution ended, they brought the body out
and a church was built in the Saint's name. Fifteen bishops and a large
number of people gathered on this day and attended the consecration of
the church. When the body of the Saint was brought to the church, scented
oil flowed forth from it and many sick people who were anointed with it
in faith were healed.
May His blessings be with us. Amen.
Commemoration of the Preaching of St.Bartholomew,
On this day, we also commemorate
St. Bartholomew, one of the Twelve Apostles, who preached in the oasis
of Al-Khargah, where he led the people to the knowledge of God. .
May His prayers be with us and glory be to our God forever. Amen
