|MESSAGE FROM VICAR|
Compare ourselves with Prophet Jonah and find out what attitude taken us away from God
We are now reach the first Lent season of this year (), please observe the Lent by everyone to prepare the war against the evil. Be strong enough to live as a real Christian in this world and witness our Lord Jesus Christ.
"The men of Nineveh will rise up in the Judgment with this generation and condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and indeed a greater than Jonah is here." St. Matthew 12:41.
With sorrow and great tears the entire city wept, and with one voice implored before justice, that the Lord may hear its suplication and the fasting that it had offered up and to remove the punishment and the wrath that was about to take place. God who received its supplication, answer Your servants, who, behold, beseech You and accept our fasting and prayers and have mercy upon us. The Ninevites who were uncircumcised gentiles and barbarians repented and were converted by the single preaching of Jonah. How much presumptuous and hard-hearted are we. For day and night the scriptures and read before us and our heart has not become soft and changed. We are not terrified by the justice. Blessed is the Good One who endures us and bears our wickedness. (taken from, night prayers of Nineveh Lent).
|Great Lent is at the door. One more oportunity to come close to God, please all the families to prepare to observe the Gret Lent. It start from February 15th Sunday 6.00PM and end with Holy Resurrection on April 5th Sunday. I am planning to have evening prayer every day (Monday to Thursday not on Friday) by 7.30PM.
