Mass of the sixth Sunday of the Paschal time and the closing of the marriage preparation course:
“If anyone loves Me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him” John 14.23
The Holy Liturgy was held by Father Ibrahim Al-Sabbagh, the Parish Priest. Who spoke in his homily that the love of Jesus is connected to the preservation of His Word and to walk according to His will. In these simple words, Jesus explained the life of the Christians
In all what God did in history, his goal was to reach the man, he wanted to capture his heart … He wanted to dwell in his heart more than to dwell in heaven, to live in partnership with man, and to fulfill the promise He will granted the believers the Holy Spirit and giving them peace … the peace that comes from above and not the peace that men give.
During the Divine Liturgy, Father Ibrahim announced the conclusion of the winter-autumn Session of preparing the betrothed for the Sacred Marriage, offering them to the Lord with the intercession of the Virgin Mary and wishing them a fruitful and happy life.
He asked the faithful to accompany in their prayers and in their care, these brave young families who knew how to say yes to love and to good life despite all the difficult conditions in our city Aleppo.
