 My beloved children in the lands of immigration, clergy and laity.

My greetings and love to you, wishing you all goodness from the Lord. Hoping that you are all growing in grace and in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.

I congratulate you on the Feast of the Nativity and for the beginning of a New Year, may it be new for you in all things and especially for your spirituality. Amongst the words that I remember on the occasion of the Feast of the Nativity, is what was said about Him during His Incarnation, that He “went about doing good.” (Acts 10:38) It is a lesson to us in our lives, to be like Him, going about doing good.

St. Philopatere Mercurius 

St. Mercurius was born to pagan parents in the year 225 A.D. in Rome.  He was named Philopatere (a Greek name meaning “lover of the Father”).  His father, Gordianus, was miraculously saved from death by an angel of the Lord, and he and his wife soon converted to Christianity.  They preached, gave alms, and raised their son according to Christian teachings. 

 

Author: H. H. Pope Shenouda III.

The love which does not sacrifice is a barren love, without fruit. Love is a productive mother that gives birth to numerous virtues such as compassion and affection, a word of encouragement and a word of consolation, attention and care, forgiveness and seeking the salvation of the soul. This is the spiritual love...

Perhaps the most distinguished quality in love... is sacrifice.

This is the big difference between love and lust:
